We really want to see the new Mission Impossible movie because Phillip Seymour Hoffman is the bad guy and he kicks ass (If you didn't see Capote, see it). The problem is that with the recent Tom Cruise is a scientology nut job controversy, I am afraid that by buying a ticket to this movie, I am showing my support for him and his silly cult. I am pretty anti-that guy so I am not realy interested in filling his bloated crazy pockets and full filling his vision of himself as a dianetic messiah, lending creedence to the power of this cult, or really even spending 2 hours staring at his stupid face. But I still want to see the movie.
How can we not suppot Tom Cruise and go see this movie? Mandy has suggested that we ask at the theater to buy a ticket for another movie, with the understanding that we actually want to see MIP3. I doubt they would go for that and I do want to show support of mainstream roles for great actors like Hoffman.
Is seeing this movie in effect a vote for scientology? Is there a difference between this movie and Pulp Fiction? Travolta is also a big proponent of scientology and that movie made him some serious coin. Wish there was a way to indicate your distain for certain actors while registering support for these sorts of artistic endevours. I also can't help that I love the movie Legend even though it is an early Tom Cruise work.
What to do?
