Magnolia (1999)

This one deserves to be on this list for a handful of reasons, but two are the most important: it differs from the majority of action movies by Tom Cruise and yet it gets just as many compliments from the critics and the audience.

Though it might not be a movie for everyone, it catches the attention of the refined cinephile with its intricate plot. The story of many different characters that end up connecting their narratives throughout the movie leaves the viewers deeply moved by the human quality of this piece.

It is a classic that deals with universal themes such as regret and forgiveness, resulting in a classic that got Tom Cruise nominated for Best Supporting actor at the Academy Awards.

While Top Gun doesn’t have the same ‘critic’ as other Tom Cruise blockbusters it probably has the greatest cult status of them all.
