The Top Ten

Forrest Gump
Surely the best movie of Tom Hanks.
"Life is a box of chocolates.. you never know what u gona get"


I love his stupidity
like "u are my girl"
"he's got a daddy named forest too"
Run forrest run to the top of the list
[Newest]Forrest Gump to me Always has been and always will be the Greatest movie of all time, in fact none even come close.

2Saving Private Ryan
There is absolutely no other! His performance is pretty good but the movie is so much better than any Tom Hanks movie! It does rival Forrest Gump though
saw forrest gump ans thought it was great, saw saving private ryan and I was speechless


so realistic. best war movie eva


[Newest]Loved Forrest but loved Private Ryan more! After viewing this movie I really appreciated WWII vets!

3The Green Mile
the standards of this film is MILES ahead of the rest. a very emotional story with fantastic acting
WOW WOW WOW! I've seen this movie more than 16 times but still can't stop watching this movie again... A CLASS
This is absolutely the most Powerfully driven movie of all time. It is devastating when John and The Tom Hanks Character both know it wasn't him that killed the girls but John still has to die. Otherwise still an incredible movie. Second best only to Forrest Gump of coarse.


[Newest]Even though people say Forest Gump is his best I beg to differ it is easily this.

4Cast Away
I'm voting for this based on performance.. Still think private ryan is the best film he's ever been in.. But his acting in this film is SO good he's absolutely flawless he alone carries this film the last 30 minutes are so moving its hard to watch.. And what about the burbs not even cracking the top 25? That film is hilarious an underrated comedy in my opinion
I love this kind of things and Im big lost fan


I watched this movies twice. I think it is not only movie but it is real time story of a person who escapes from no man's island. My hats off to Tom Hanks for his wonderful acting.
[Newest]The performance and Tom's acting in this film are incredible. Imagine being trapped on an island for four years trying to fend for yourself and survive. Not an easy task.

5Toy Story
Toy Story is a huge part of my childhood.


Favorite of all animation.

6Apollo 13
Not a false note in Hanks' acting... No overwrought response when he realises what the crew of Apollo 13 faces, the odds stacked pretty much against them. He is in complete control, knowing his crew depends on him.
I absolutely loved this movie. I also like how it relates to NASA too!


It was an outsting movie ihave ever seen

7The Terminal
He has shown acting can not only be done by great dialogues. Here, his innocence is his great power. He is really a versatile actor. Salute you Hanks.
This is a great movie because the whole movie is taken within a terminal...
I have seen all Tom Hanks movies and I like this movie and 'Angels and Demons' very much... The best part about this movie is that Hanks makes friends with the people in the terminal and falls in love with a woman... I belived this movie would be next in rank to Forrest Gump... I am pretty much disappointed... Vote for this movie guys...
Best Movie I like it his innocence.
[Newest]Definitely the best for me :D

I saw this movie when I was 10 on cable Television. It inspired me then and I wanted to see it again but couldn't because I live in India and you can't just go to store and buy an American movie in those days. About a year ago, I downloaded it, found complete silence and then saw it again. It felt like the last piece of an incomplete puzzle.
very nice movie tom hanks is amazing in this movie
Great movie! There's not too many movies from his earlier career here.


[Newest]Such a great film. Tom hanks is an outstanding actor in all his movies.


This should have been higher on the list, the acting is the best.
I'm on love with Andrew Beckett thanks for Tom Hanks's acting...

10Toy Story 3
Why isn't Toy Story 3 NOT in the top ten? It's higher than The Green Mile and Big on the list for best movies of all time.
Woody never gets old. it should be next to terminal..

The Contenders

11Toy Story 2

12Road to Perdition
An amazing film on the relation between a father and his son, based on a thrilling plot.
Tom Hanks at his best. The best father son relationship ever in silver screen.
The awesome cinematography will take your heart away. The story telling and the direction will take you back to the winters of 1931.!

13Captain Phillips
Tom Hanks best film in recent times, absolutely incredible. He gives such a genuine and strong performance with great depth. Captain Phillips is a breathtaking film with tremendous performances and it's full of intensity and excitement. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
This should be in number 3! Come on.
Decided to vote for this because it belongs in the Top 10. Excellent performance by Hanks and everyone in this film. Truly captivating

14Catch Me If You Can
Ever loved film whoever once watch this film.
This film should be awarded Oscar.
Just shocked seeing this film on bottom of the list.
How can people forget this movie.
Great accent he have use in this movie
This should be at least in top 10

23Cloud Atlas
I don't understand why everyone hates this movie.
It's beautiful and he acts well in most of the timelines.

24The Money Pit
The money pit is so funny just as funny as the burbs

25Charlie Wilson's War

26Larry Crowne

27That Thing You Do!
A Pennsylvania band scores a hit in 1964 and rides the star-making machinery as long as it can, with lots of help from its manager.
It's such a great movie! Great story, great actors and awesome soundtrack! I would recommend it to everyone!

This early Hanks movie should be a lot higher on the list! So many classic actors here... Eugene Levy, Darryl Hannah and of course John Candy (classic actor and really funny guy) helping to carry the show - it must go down as one of his best!

29The Man with One Red Shoe

30Joe Versus the Volcano

31The Ladykillers

32The 'Burbs
Its easily one of his best comedies

33The Simpsons Movie


35Bachelor Party
