mamo #43: The Ick Factor

Very near the beginning of Mamo, we did a show about Tom Cruise and his undeniable box office presence, and more recently, at least one of us crowned him the king of the summer... only to watch that crown get royally smacked clean of his monkey-boy head by M:I 3's (relatively) weak grosses. What will become of Mr. Holmes?

Thanks for mentioning that Mojo site. After seeing where Shrek 2 lies in the grand schemem of lifetime gross I puked and cursed the movie going public AND their children.

As for the rest of the show:
- Pirates will definitely own Superman (and I will love them both).

- Travolta may be a scientologist but I don't think will ever overshadow any memory of his career the way it will Tom's. That man has ripped this crazy cult from the backburner of the North American mind and thrust it under our noses to smell how ridiculous it is. However, Tom will continue to make money the same way Oprah would if she murdered someone in cold blood. They both have their devoted followers who in some cases are just as nuts people who follow Hubbard.

- I'm glad I can still enjoy Top Gun, Days of Thunder and Cocktail.

- Collateral WAS fantastic, but I don't think that had anything to do with Tom.

About the kid in previous episode I completely agree with [geeky] Matt. It's nice to mix things up from time to time. If you like it to turn up better, maybe you should talk to the kid beforehand a little bit about what are you going to ask him, so he can think about it. :)
