Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise will produce and may star in the serial-killer thriller The Monster of Florence, reports Variety.

The film is about eight grisly double homicides believed to have been committed single-handedly between 1968 and 1985 in and around the Italian Renaissance gem.

The script will be penned by Chris McQuarrie, who also wrote the screenplay for Valkyrie (Cruise‘s next big film opening Dec. 26). If the 46-year-old actor likes what he reads again, he’ll star in Monster.

    The photo accompanying this blurb is hideously hilarious. Excellent work.

    “I cannot comment with any authority on something I personally have not fully investigated.”

    You know who did investigate? The Federal Bureau of Investigation. For some reason they seemed to think the reinforcement of America’s freedoms might somehow compromised by the organization’s illegal and unethical activity, but I’m sure that’s just another tabloid rumor.

    Tom Cruise is so over. He can put out press release about anything he wants. No one is going to go see his movies. The only reason Tropic Thunder did well is because of the other actors.

    When you shove your insane beliefs down everyone’s throat, insult women by saying that PPD doesn’t exist, call an entire medical science (Psychiatry, Psychology and Social Work) a “Nazi science” on nationwaide television, donate millions to a cult that murders people, goes after anyone who disagrees with them and makes children work instead of going to school, and tell everyone that if they don’t like your religion, “well f**k you”, you deserve to be OVER and Tom is.

    Lions for Lambs TANKED. Valkyrie will too and so will every other movie Tom does. Good. I know I won’t ever see another film with him in it.

    I respect your belief in God.

    Did you know that Scientologists do not believe in God once they have passed OT III? L. Ron Hubbard taught that Jesus Christ was an implant used to control the masses in OT III. Then in OT VIII, he teaches that Jesus was a pedophile. Isn’t that lovely? I know this because I’ve read the text myself.

    I encourage you to do a little research into Scientology and find out why so many people are against it. Please read the survivor’s stories. There are thousands. Please read the court cases and information on the FBI investigations. A good place to start is

    Thank you, Krissy. I am neither for or against any cult or religion, including Scientology. However, I am completely “for” any person’s right to their own beliefs. If the FBI is investigating Scientology and they find grounds to prosecute (or whatever they do), then that will be good enough for me and I am sure we will all hear about it from reliable news sources … not tabloids or blogs. Until then, I am neither for or against it.

    Truly people, believe what you want. I have no issues with any of your beliefs. But I don’t have any issues with Tom Cruise either and I will go see his movies if they appeal to me. To me, he is just a great actor.

    Last comment … promise! I need to get back to work!

    My husband and I saw Tropic Thunder last weekend (I didn’t really want to see it as it the previews looked kinda silly but my husband insisted). I have to tell you that we laughed all the way through it, as did the rest of the audience (theatre was packed). Our favourite character was played by Tom Cruise. We didn’t even know he was in the movie. We do not think it would have been so funny if somebody else had played that part. He was brilliant. Absolutely hillarious. But then … he is a really good actor.

    Peace to all!

    $cientology is a business
    that operates as a cult
    pretending to be a religion.

    They already did investigate.

    An FBI raid on Scientology headquarters in Clearwater, FL uncovered documents that referred to their secret operation to take over Clearwater as “Project Normandy” as well as plans to infiltrate numerous federal and state government offices. The investigation resulted in several top leaders of the church going to prison.

    See what just a tiny bit of research can uncover? The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    For those of you who are legitimate Tom Cruise fans and cannot understand why so many people question his motives. Please take the time to do a little due diligence on the cult of $cientology and what it stands for.

    I ask this because then you may really understand why so many of us are disgusted with his convenient ignorance and denial on what he represents as the mouthpiece for $cientology.

    There are thousands of ex members who are now finding the courage to speak out about what they experienced in this cult.
    Read some first hand experiences. You will be shocked at what Tom Cruise really believes in and defends.

    To call this a religion is a injustice of the highest kind.
    Scientology is not a religion. We need to stop calling it that.
    At it’s very BEST – it’s a corporation that sells self-help books and courses ( think hard selling Amyway for the mind ).

    Scientology is nothing but a sham – a money-making venture masking itself in religious clothing to avoid prosecution, and doing quite well at it, I might add – thanks to their secret deal with the IRS that gives them preferential treatment over any other religion in the US.

    Tom is trying hard to redeem his public image. He is attempting to whitewash his past antics, but seriously most people know where Tom Cruise is coming from these days.

    But don’t take my word for it. Find out for yourself.
    Just google, scientology, scientology + abuse, scientology + hubbard, scientology + scam, scientology + tax exemption.

    He is such a tool. He can’t even speak with a German accent in his new film. He needs to give it up already.

    It is scary that Tom and the rest of the cult actually believe the science fiction writings of ron l hubbard. For those of you sticking up for Tom and the “church” do your research. You will be shocked at what you find out.

    Is it wrong that I want to see Valkyrie just because I’ve heard how ridiculous his attempt at a German accent is? They say he might get more unintentional laughs in this than his comic cameo in Tropic Thunder!

    Dancer Says:

    Well, I read the book Monster of Florence and don’t see Tom Cruise in the lead at all. He lacks the depth that is needed for the role to really take off. Not to mention he never seems to get in character anymore…he just plays various phases of Tom Cruise.
    And to be honest I’d like to see the book made into a movie, but until Tommy boy gets out of the cult of Scientology, I will never pay another dime to watch his movies, Katie’s plays etc. And that includes other scientology actors/actresses. I won’t support this cult. My own opinion.

    Actually Cruise is a Govt. Agent the Scientology stuff is just coverup to distract the public and media. God bless TC! He’s like the modern John Wayne so all American so loyal and worked for the Govt. secretly.

    Pls respect all religions and beliefs and do not judge. Passing cheap juvenile comments only degrade yourselves,your family and the belief and teaching you hold true.

    How can others see you as real and true when you have no love and respect for others?

    Peacekeeper. You sound like a wonderful person, but some of us are not making fun of Tom’s religion because it’s NOT a religion. It’s a ‘CULT’.

    It is hard to comment on Tom anymore, without knowing what is going on…… DANCER, I read that book also, and was so intriqued by it….BUT, you know me and the Cruises, especially only Katie and Suri,…I do NOT see Tom as the lead role.. AGREED… I had pictured another actor doing the lead act…. Maybe Brad Pitt…? Ben Affleck? Tom does NOT FIT that character in the book…….. Besides, I thought he just signed up to do another fim recently……..A comic book type film…Am I wrong here ?

    raquel Says:

    Will Smith better watch it, because he’s falling into the ‘Cult’ trap and he’s gettig some major bad press as well. I would have gone to see Hancock in the movies but I was NOT going to spend my money on people like Tom or Will. It is such a shame, because I didn’t think Will was that weak minded.

    defap Says:

    Like I said the majority opinions don’t equal the right opinions. Accordingly, I don’t see the point to make up many names.

    Lackykat, I agree with you.

    I am sure most people are eager to seek out legal actions if they’re actually hurt unfairly. Isn’t Tom sued by some extras for 11 millions for his German partner’s fault? Since when all those victims keep silent and don’t sue for money and/or dignity? Fat chance. And if there are lawsuits against them, which cases can prove they are at fault? It looks like some anonymous are deliberate to spread defamation.

    Some outsiders are changing from indifferent neutrals, to defenders, to fans, which is what happens when people see a stranger get hurt for no reasons. Yes, everything we see contradicts what some anonymous say.
