Top 25 Tom Hanks Movies

Updated on January 30, 2015

The Best Movies Starring Tom Hanks

It's not easy to create a list of the best movies starring Tom Hanks, since there are so many movies that could be categorized as Tom Hanks finest, both from his own performance in them as well as for being great movies.

I have done my best to create a Top 25 Tom Hanks Movies List that features "in my opinion" his top 25 movies, out of the more than 65 movies and other productions that he has been involved with. I hope you agree with my selection of the best Tom Hanks movies, but whether you do or not, your feedback is always welcome.

He is also a highly talented producer of movies and television shows, which include The Pacific, John Adams, Mama Mia, Evan Almighty, The Polar Express, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Band Of Brothers and From The Earth To The Moon.

In addition, Tom Hanks has directed the following classic productions: Band Of Brothers, From The Earth To The Moon, That Thing You Do, Vault Of Horror I, Fallen Angels, A League Of Their Own and Tales From The Cript.

#1: Forrest Gump

"Run Forrest Run"

Forrest Gump is one of those movies that I could watch over and over again. Tom Hanks always emerses himself into a role really well, but none quite as complete as he does in this terrific movie.

This is story of a mentally challenged man who finds that he is gifted in a number of ways and who has some amazing adventures as a result.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, you have probably seen parts of the trailer, with Forrest Gump telling the woman sitting next to him at the bus stop "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get", or of him receiving a medal at the White House and embarrassing the President.

The only disappointment I had when I first saw the movie was that I had just read the book, and the movie barely covers half of Forrest's exploits. It does however cover the story brilliantly, and in my opinion this is Tom Hanks's finest movie role.

#2: Apollo 13

"Houston, We Have A Problem"

Apollo 13 was expertly directed by Ron Howard and is a dramatised documentary that covers the ill fated 3rd mission by NASA to land a man on the moon.

Tom Hanks plays mission commander Jim Lovell, with supporting actors Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon and Gary Sinise.

When things go horribly wrong, crippling Apollo 13 on the way to the moon, the team at Mission Control in Houston have to find a way to bring the crew back safely.

Even though we all know what happened, and I have watched this movie many times, I still get edgy during the tenser moments, feeling everything with the crew during the mission.

#5: Sleepless In Seattle

"Well I'm not looking for a mail-order bride! I just want somebody I can have a decent conversation with over dinner."

Sleepless In Seattle is one of those great family movies where a kid steals the show. In this case it's Tom Hanks's son Jonah (played by Ross Malinger) who charms the pants off an audience listening to a radio talk show, where he talks about how he misses his recently deceased Mother, and how he would like to find another wife for his Dad.

Reporter Annie Reed from Baltimore (Meg Ryan) decides to investigate further, and the rest of the plot is a cute long-distance love story that is just adorable.

The cast also includes Tom's wife in real life Rita Wilson, Bill Pullman, David Hyde Pierce and Rosie O'Donnell. Click on the picture for a more detailed review and to purchase the DVD.

      Cast Away is probably the one in which he lost himself the most in the role. I like to think he even forgot about the cameras around him. I'm somewhat an introvert person so this movie was most enjoyable for me to watch. I drift away completely every time i watch Cast Away.

      I think Tom Hanks is one of the greatest actors in the world, but sometimes is not recognized as such because he's not flamboyant and demanding attention in every movie he makes. It seems to be important to him whether the role has character, and I like that very much. He never seems to be acting. Thanks for a great lens on one of my favorite actors.

      This was nostalgic for me and gave me goosebumps.

      Tom Hanks truly delivers 'feel good movies' in the truest sense of the word, coupled by the fact that he doesn't have any dirt or any Hollywood stigma attached to him, seeing all this makes me happy :)

      He is one of the legends of Hollywood without a doubt, and has a number of movies that I can watch repeatedly...and it has been a while since I have seen one, so I may need to head on over to Netflix.

      Enjoyed the lens. Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors. I agreed with your top 25 for the most part. There were actually a couple I haven't seen.

      Tom Hanks is definitely one of my all-time favorite actors ... and how about that he celebrates his birthday on July 9th?

      I love Tom Hanks, but I certainly did not do well on the quiz. Sigh.

      I enjoy nearly all movies with Tom Hanks. It's funny because I couldn't hardly stand him when he was on tv....Now he's one of my favorite actors.

      Tom Hanks is a very good actor. He can make you cry or laugh because he can portray his roles very well.

      You're right, Tom Hanks made so many great movies that it is almost impossible to pick a favorite.

      Wow! So many Tom Hanks movies that I have forgotten about and haven't seen in years. I'll be checking Netflix to see what's available. I'm sure my kids would like Big. =)
