"Millions of galaxies of hundreds of millions of stars, in a speck on one in a blink. That’s us, lost in space." — Vincent, Collateral
Though he's most widely known for his action movies — the Mission: Impossible movies, in particular — superstar actor Tom Cruise has also starred in a handful of sci-fi movies in his career, including War of the Worlds (2005), his highest grossing domestic release to date. After an eight-year hiatus from sci-fi, Cruise will return to the genre on April 19th in Oblivion, a post-apocalyptic epic from director Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) in which Cruise plays one of the last drone (read: clone) workers on an Earth that is all but abandoned following a devastating war with an alien race known as the Scavs.
In anticipation of Oblivion's imminent release, we thought this would be a great time to look back on Cruise's rather extensive filmography to determine, with your help, which movies contributed to making him the superstar he is today. Take off your mask (as our own Richard Roeper pointed out in his book, Cruise wears masks in many of his later films), quit jumping on the sofa and help us choose Cruise's best movies.

Just how difficult has career advancement gotten in the 21st century? In Dinner for Schmucks — based on the French movie The Dinner Game — Tim (Paul Rudd) is desperate to get ahead in his career, but the only way to do so is to curry favor with his boss, who likes nothing better than to throw dinner parties where his execs bring along out-and-out idiots as their very special guests. Fortunately, Tim's found a perfect candidate in IRS employee Barry (Steve Carell). Unfortunately, that means Tim is going to be spending quite a bit of time with a guy whose intellectual engagement with the world doesn't rise much above giggling at monkeys on the TV.
We feel his pain. Hey, sometimes even the best of friends behave in ways that prompt a strong desire to be swallowed up by the earth. Moviemakers love capturing those "can I please disappear now?" moments and we quite enjoy watching them ... from a distance. Here are our 10 favorites. (Feel free to forward this to your friends, family, coworkers — anyone you'd like to send a message to.)
