Tom Hanks Love

Updated on April 1, 2014

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks. Just saying his name makes me want to be an actor. The first movie I have ever seen of his was ‘Toy Story’. Yeah it was an animation, but I loved how he played Woody the cowboy, he is Woody. Ever since then, I wanted to watch more movies he has done. ‘Forrest Gump’ is my second favorite movie. His character throws all his worldly possessions to just run across the country. It’s not even for to get anything or go somewhere. He just did it to do it. The movie won him his first Academy Award. The first time I watched ‘Bachelor Party’ I saw where he got his funny bone for ‘Toy Story’. The part in ‘Bachelor Party’ where they prank the bachelorette party with the well-endowed waiter was hilarious. ‘Splash’, where he falls in love with a mermaid was funny as well.

‘Big’ where he turns from 10 to a grown man shows his way that he can act like a man child. ‘Philadelphia’ showed his range of drama as a gay lawyer with aids, making him win his second Academy Award. ‘Catch me If You Can’ where he teams up with the amazing actor Leonardo Dicaprio, and he chases Leo’s character for ten years because of fraud. One of the best movies that I love watching over and over again with Tom Hanks. There are so many other movies that he has done as well, like ‘Da Vinci Code’, ‘Castaway’, ‘Polar Express’, ‘Toy Story’ series, ‘Cars’, ‘Charlie Wilson’s War’, ‘Larry Crowne’, ‘Captain Phillips’ ‘Saving Mr. Banks’. Like I said before, words cannot describe how awesome Tom Hanks is.

Is Tom Hanks your fave actor?

      Tom Hanks is such a versatile, family-friendly actor, and many of those films you picked which he performed in were great; seems like he can work all kinds of genre.

      He's one of my favorites too - I recently did a count. I've seen more of his films in theaters than any other actor.
