Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I agree I do not picture TC as Jack. But I am still going to the movie.
I think it's wonderful when I read a book by an author that's new to me and want to read the rest of the series. I went to the library and got them all, I'm looking forward to more by Lee Child. As for the movie, I'll probably see it when it comes to Netflix, I wouldn't pay to go to a theater to see it. I'll just pretend it has nothing to do with the books, I have my own image of Jack Reacher in my mind and I'm keeping him, LOL.
I'm with everyone else on this. I don't go to the movies, but will check out DVDs from the library if they have a good one. I can't imagine TC as Jack Reacher. I had a similar experience with watching Sahara, based on a Clive Cussler novel. The actor did not in any way resemble the Dirk Pitt I carry around in my mind.

Saw the movie on Christmas day in the evening with hubby. We really enjoyed the movie but didn't realize there was a book. I don't read those kind of books. And they were only charging $5 for tickets. I guess because it was Christmas day.
Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.
Will not go see the movie. Tom is not anywhere near the Reacher image.
I am not a Tom Cruise fan- so I won't be watching that one at all.
Its sad when movieland takes a novel and distorts it instead of trying to keep the character as it is in the book. So many movies have been made from a book and turns out they are not even close to the book.
