He is the most annoying actor ... not sure even SGI's would make watching him palatable. Too bad no one used a flyswatter on him when they had the chance.

No, Mr. Cruise has it hands down. That little freak creeps me out.

I dunno ... pretty hard to decide between them .. still tending to vote for Jeff G, myself. Was he in Flesh Gordon with the penisauruses, tho ? Maybe worth a point or two ...

I've always been a little curious about this sort of thing. Jurassic Park and Congo both featured sgi hardware. Does Michael Crichton have a hard-on for SGI gear? I seem to remember some of his books making mention of it too (a roomful of Indigos or I2s in Airframe comes to mind..), though I can't recall any other films offhand.

Are they in the books? I don't think it has anything to do with Crichton - I thought SGI has product placement agreements with the film companies using their equipment.

I like Cruise. I like the movies he's been in. Top Gun was the kickass. I even like his more recent stuff.

Offscreen he's a bit wacky but I think it's just the "in thing" to make fun of Cruise over other, equally nutcase actors.

Ah, not sure. I have just re-read Congo in the past six months, but can't recall one way or the other. The product placement thing may make more sense, although Airframe does specifically mention the "purple Indigos" (or I2s, whichever it was), being used to reconstruct data from some sort of flight data recorder. Can't recall on the JP book either - they make reference to some gene sequencing equipment (fictional or otherwise) by name, but I don't remember if any of the actual big iron is named or not. Actually, now that I think about it, InGen purchased a few Cray machines in the book...

I liked the South Park episode where Tom Cruise got stuck in the closet.

The whole episode people were comming up to Cartmans bedroom and begging Tom Cruise to come out of the closet in the mean time there was an animated version of Scientology beliefs.. and law suits for everyone... and one of the kids became the choosen one or something... Which without sailing too close too aynones random thread lock area was er... interesting .. or ... amusing .. depending on your tolerance... and all the credits at the end were Jane Doe and John Doe all round...

Scientology is not off limits. :roll:

If you have a problem with any of the mods, please take it up with Nekonoko, if there has been any abuse of power he would be happy to take care of it.

i guess you'll find display of sgi boxes in "lawnmower man", "hackers" and "mission to mars" as well. on top of that, these are great movies. i'm not lying ... really! :twisted:


Well, on a side note... I saw last night "Mission To Mars", it is not exactly my first time with these movie, but after a couple years of having seen it by first time... hey... it looks like brand new, and add to this... it is pretty good. Way better than "Congo" at least! :lol:
But out of joke, I think it is a fine movie. I really like these theory about human seeds of life travelling thousands kilometers just to bring it a chance to extend some life to another planet. And yeah, the movie has some pretty long shots with a couple SGI monitors! ;) ...but I think I've enjoyed even more these display-less multimedia presentation from the alien girl! ...are we already there with the hologramic technology?
Cheers,
Diego
