Top Twelve Tom Hanks Movies


Last week we saw Captain Phillips, a movie based on the hijacking of an American container ship by Somali pirates. An intense two hour journey with the captain and crew keeps movie goers immersed in the action and exhausted.

 

Tom Hanks stars as the title character in Captain Phillips, but that wasn’t his only appearance on the big screen that night. In the trailers, Hanks stars as Walt Disney in the upcoming movie based on the making of Mary Poppins, Saving Mr. Banks…one I’ll see in December.

Seeing him in two very different movies reminded me of the Hanks movies I’ve enjoyed over the years.

Top Ten Tom Hanks Movies:

Apollo 13

Philadelphia

Road to Perdition

Toy Story

Sleepless in Seattle

Saving Private Ryan

Forest Gump

Big

A League of Their Own

Charlie Wilson’s War

Catch Me If You Can

Turner and Hooch

 

I admit that I even enjoyed Joe Versus the Volcano and The Man With One Red Shoe. A movie with Tom Hanks…that’s one I want to see. Maybe I should plan to watch all of his movies in 2014. At one a week, I’ll be busy most of the year!

I know…somehow I’ve never seen The Green Mile. I need to make that a priority.

  1. Tom Hanks is SO versatile!! Loved Turner and Hooch…Terminal is another good one! And I watch “You’ve Got Mail” every time its on! šŸ™‚ When I need a mystery, I like DaVinci Code. But I can’t go through Christmas without Polar Express! What an amazing actor! And almost always stars in good , clean entertainment. Can’t wait to see Capt Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks!
