Best Tom Cruise Podcast
I never thought someone would feed my tom cruise obsession as much as this podcast does! It's been super fun to listen to the podcast and relive some of his best movies!
I ran into this pod cast via some other movie based ones. At first I thought it would be some ridiculous sycophant fangasm over Tom Cruise so I listened to see how bad it was... SO GLAD I WAS WRONG. It's hilarious! I love how they start at the begining of his career and trudge through the junk films I grew up watching becauswe my older sisters loved Tom Cruise. I can't wait until they get to the crazy couch jumping Tom era. I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, but oddly enough he's in a few of my favorite movies. Hopefully I won't toss my phone across the if/when they bash on Vanilla Sky and Edge of Tomorrow... but if they do I am sure it will be worth a cracked screen.
My Favorite Podcast!
I was tired of listening to all of my usual podcasts, and I just really wanted to listen to something about a topic I really care about, myself. You can imagine how excited I was to hear that Cruise Control wasn't just ANOTHER car podcast. No sir, Cruise Control is a delicious feast for the ears wherin you may hear all about my life, my career, and my love of Russian nesting dolls. Well, maybe they haven't heard about that one yet, but rest assured, no one is mad about matryoshkas like I am.
