In honor of Tom Hanks 55th birthday, his top 10 best films…

Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors. I’ve followed his career for years. Would try to watch all of his films as much as I can, but to be honest, I’m not interested in seeing, “Larry Crowne”, his latest film that he directed himself and starred with Julia Roberts. It doesn’t look good. I’ll see it on DVD of course, just not in theater. I love most of Tom Hanks movies, but once in a while he can come out with a bad movie or two like “The Ladykillers” and “Charlie Wilson’s War”, those films were horrible.

Here are my choices of Best of Tom Hanks, I’ll name ten of his films in order:

  1. The Road to Perdition – This has always been my favorite Tom Hanks movie, “Saving Private Ryan” and “Forrest Gump” are both good flicks but they are kind of overrated. “Road to Perdition” is the best film he’s ever done, in my opinion. His best role that he should have won another Oscar for.
  2. Cast Away – Another favorite of mine. This film is never boring all the way through. I’ll never get tired of “Cast Away”.
  3. The Green Mile – Another one of his best roles and a bit underrated too. I love this film.
  4. Toy Story 3 – Like everyone else, I think the third Toy Story movie is the best one of the trilogy.
  5. Forrest Gump – This needs to be high on the list, or I would get in trouble if I put it as 9 or 10. Yes, Forrest Gump is a classic indeed.
  6. Apollo 13 – This is the best Ron Howard/Tom Hanks collaboration, in my opinion.
  7. Joe Versus The Volcano – This is my favorite of his comedy era, it’s a really great film.
  8. BIG – Another classic flick, of his comedy days, I love this film as well.
  9. The Burb’s – Another great comedy flick in the 80’s. Corey Feldman’s character is the best part of the film.
  10. The Terminal – An entertaining film, I’ll never get tired of. Even though this film had slight problems in the writing, other than that, a good film. I enjoy it.

Most of his flicks are good but those 10 are my favorite.
