Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Do you realize that Tom Cruise has now been a movie star longer than many of us have been alive? Since 1983, sliding on a living room floor in his underwear in Risky Business, Cruise has dutifully made on average more than one film every year since (allowing for an unusually long break making Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, which famously was a grueling 400-day shoot). In that time, he has gone from kitschy teen comedies (Business, Losin' It), to wildly earnest dramas (Born on the Fourth of July), to a brief auteur period where he made films with Kubrick and Paul Thomas Anderson back in '99 (Magnolia). Since then, though, he has seemingly settled into the life of an A-List action star, playing a host of unstoppable secret agents and unstoppable sci-fi heroes, with brief excursions as a samurai, a smarmy movie producer, and an aging metal singer.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I've tried to talk about Jesus with a man who works with me, but he always replies that what I'm saying is just my opinion, and he's not interested. He has kind of a messed-up life and really needs Jesus, but how can I get through to him?
