Oh wow! Hard to pick; there are so many good ones!
I would have to say "Road to Perdition."
I like a few of his films but the one I like the most is "Everytime We Say Goodbye." Very underrated movie about an American pilot who falls in love with a Jewish girl during WWII... classic Romeo and Juliet type theme of initial unrequieted love that ultimately is consummated... Hanks keeps his cool in the movie and doesn't overdo the comedic side...
That's extremly a tough desicion. He appeared in many great movies as well produced.
I think I'll go with "The Terminal", he does the accent perfect.
Great question! I am not particularly a fan of Tom Hanks, but when I was younger my mom introduced me to the movies 'Big' and 'A League of Their Own'...my two favorites.
The Money Pit and The Green Mile are two that come to mind right away. Can't pick just one.
I will go for "Forrest Gump".
Great soundtrack and greatest the part when he run the marathon: "I am a bit tired".
well i will say 2 movies. Forrest gump and philadelfia. great movies indeed. Probably the best of his career
I'm split because I love the comedy in "The Terminal", the storyline to "Road to Perdition" but the drama of "Saving Private Ryan" and "Philadelphia". So can I have all 4 of them
Tom Hanks is consistently solid in all his movies so it's hard to pick the best one.
My two favorites are: Charlie Wilson's War and Catch Me If You Can.
I also enjoy his movies for kids and kids-at-heart:
1) Toy Story I, II, III
4) Polar Express
You know that no one will be able to just list one and really mean it! LOL. This isn't a fair question HannahRiley!!! All the movies he has appeared in are my favorites. He is such a great character actor. I can not get enough of him. Everytime he comes out in a movie I have to run out and see it because I know it will be good...
There's so many. My top 3 would be:
I believe it's called Joe And The Volcano. It was the first time I saw Meg Ryan.
2nd would be Road to Perdition.
