BEST 3. 'The Color of Money'
If there was any doubting Tom Cruise's star power (or acting chops), this 1986 sequel to "The Hustler" proved critics wrong. Directed by Martin Scorsese, "Money" starred Paul Newman, who reprised his role as pool hustler, and Cruise as his protege. Newman won an Oscar for his role, while Cruise received praise for his spirited turn as a borderline antagonist. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Touchstone)
