Greatest Tom Hanks Movies

The Top Ten
1 Forrest Gump

No doubt about this, he deserved that Oscar for this movie, I'm so glad that he won an Oscar for this movie, not only did he deserve and Oscar for this movie, but he also Deserved an Oscar for Castaway, Captain Phillips, Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile, and Apollo 13.
Out of all the actors in this world, Tom Hanks is truly my number 1 favorite, and best actor in my opinion.

"Run Freddie Run", this I would say to my younger nephew, 60 years ago. He was going to get parental discipline for something he did not deserve. Freddie would not run, he would stand there trembling to except his fate. 'Forrest Gump', is the most moving movie I ever saw. Number '1'. Thank you Tom Hanks. " Run Forrest Run"...

Surely the best movie of Hank's filmography till date. The character passed his lifetime chasing for love and when he finally acheives it, it is found to be dying. Thus the tragedy of life is depicted very truly- one cannot be perfectly happy- he can achive perfection in whatever he does but still he has to long for something or the other.

His innocence can n=be mistaken for his stupidity but the beauty of this splendid character can never leave your mind once you watch this movie. An excellent movie, cannot be forgotten for the subtle yet significant messages of life that it conveys!

2 Saving Private Ryan

I'm sorry Forrest Gump, I love the film but it is should be below Saving Private Ryan. Hanks gives a heart felt performance but in Saving Private Ryan he gives a gritty performance that tops Forrest Gump

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

Greatest War movie one will ever see!
Everything is at place. Direction, Acting, brotherhood... you name it this movie has it all.

Hanks has acted better in Forrest Gump, but movie-wise maybe just maybe, Saving Private Ryan should get the nod here.

3 The Green Mile

No other words to describe this movie other than 'simply stunning'. Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan provide an incredible double act that will almost certainly strike your emotions and reduce you to tears. Along with The Shawshank Redemption, it is the best film I've ever witnessed.

I'm surprised that this Movie didn't come in as # 1. This is the Greatest all time movie Tom Hanks could have ever starred in. There was so much passion, tears, and story line that impacted a sense of feeling that it was insane. This will "always" be my favorite!

This is absolutely the most Powerfully driven movie of all time. It is devastating when John and Paul Edgecomb 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.

My remix says that I love this movie and my first choice. I like this movie even more than forrest gump.

4 Cast Away

This is my favorite film! Let's talk about his acting. He blew me away in terms of his acting. The raw emotion and how he played his part was just amazing. When the plane crashes, it was so shocking and emotional. Also the story kept me interested. My eyes were glued to the screen watching this. Now let's talk about the character development. Tom Hanks was so developed in this movie. A man on a stranded island trying to survive for dear life. But to understand the character development, just watch the movie. It was also really balanced in terms of color. Cinematography means a lot to me. In this movie, there was lush greens, beautiful blues, and bright yellows. Yellow is REALLY prominent like his raft which you will see throughout the movie. If you want a beautiful movie in every way, check out this movie! PLEASE WATCH THIS MOVIE! Everything about it is just breathtaking!

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

You can't believe that he's actually acting in this part, when he lost Wilson in the middle of pacific... He cried lying in his boat... And that's too much flawless, you can't even understand he's acting or it's real!

Wow.. This movie is thought provoking, touching and awesome at its best. I cannot even imagine anybody else doing this role, that would just be unfair. The whole charisma of this movie comes from tom hanks.

5 Toy Story

This is the sixth best animated movie in my opinion, and Tom hanks nails woody.

Love this movie its awesome tom Hank's is the best actor ever!

Toy Story is a huge part of my childhood.

Favorite of all animation.

6 Big

Forrest Gump is so overrated. Tom Hanks has made several movies better than Forrest Gump including Big, Turner and Hooch, Sleepless in Seattle, Catch Me If You Can, The Green Mile, Saving Private Ryan, The Toy Story movies, Charlie Wilsons War, You've Got Mail, The Polar Express, Philadelphia, and Bridge Of Spies. Big specifically is a really well made classic.

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.

I can watch this movie over and over again and never get enough. Its almost sad when he turns small again, he's impossible to let go. He's just spectacular in everything he does. The way he walks, talks, plays, run... His innocence brings out the charm in the movie.

Now this was though between Big and splash but this was funnier and more exciting.

7 Philadelphia

I just re-watched this movie.! Tom played the hell out of that role. Why the heck is this movie so far down on the list?

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...

This is a beautiful should be way up there in top 5 at least

8 Apollo 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.

This movie is wonderful not only great acting but music which makes
you feel happy while still crying glad these men where saved...Tom Hanks makes this film one of my best ever..

I absolutely loved this movie. I also like how it relates to NASA too!

AS good as the original event! You can' do better than that.

9 Toy Story 2
10 Catch 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.

It's a movie of comedy, documentary and drama. One of the best
True stories ever put on a movie. Plus one of his best movies made so far.

I love this film and love watching it with my family. Best film of Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio ever.

I just checked out this film, rated 8.1 by imdb, using two of the greatest actors there are.How could it not be good?

The Contenders
11 The Terminal

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...

That expression at the moment he sees on T.V. that his country has witnessed a coup, it's priceless. What an amazing amazing movie, Hanks never stops mesmerizing you. The innocence of his character is the prize winner here. He's adorable.

I don't think, this movie should be in the top 10 list...
Yeah!.. tom hanks is good but overall I found this movie a tad bit boring, and I didn't see how sleepless in Seattle, you've got mail and a league of their own is not a part of this list.

The "Terminal" was something that was totally unexpected for me where Tom Hanks is concerned. This is what makes him such a GREAT actor. I loved every bit of it and could watch it time and time again.

12 Toy 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.

I liked this movie

13 Captain 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.

Definitely deserves to be in the top 5. Great movie! Incredible acting by Tom Hanks. It's a must watch! Gripping story and suspense is there till the very end!

Decided to vote for this because it belongs in the Top 10. Excellent performance by Hanks and everyone in this film. Truly captivating

This should be at least in number 3. It's that great.
4: Saving Private Ryan
3: Captain Phillips
2: Castaway
1: Forrest Gump

14 A League of Their Own

Classic Tom Hanks in this movie. The long pissing scene is one that I will never forget.

15 Road to Perdition

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.!

A incredible movie, it kept me enticed and I would watch it again. Tom Hanks kills his roll and makes you feel for him and believe he is a bad was. Just so many different things going on in the same time ita imposible to be bored

Before this movie I could never picture Tom Hanks as a criminal, or a mobster. But this is just another example of his great acting abilities.

How can this be 14th? An absolutely riveting film and performance. Understated and totally believable.

16 The Polar Express
17 Saving Mr. Banks

This is...the most saddest movie I've seen.

18 The Simpsons Movie
19 Bridge of Spies

Riverting. Great dialogue about American values. A man never looses his intentions even when being tested by fire. Best movie I've ever seen.

Excellent adaption of a true story, riveting to watch.

Hanks is outstanding. Oscar worthy, in my opinion.

20 Splash

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!

21 Sleepless in Seattle

It's definitely one of best romantic movie ever!

22 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
23 The Da Vinci Code

This movie mesmerized me. I watched it over 50 times and it will not be exaggeration if I call myself a Tom Hanks maniac as only he can pull off such an performance. Needless to say he made Robert Langdon alive...

Awesome script..
Tom was just bom..
I just watched 3 times on a singel day...
Expecting some more movies like "the davinchi code" "ll get soon...
Thank U..

Great movie, l truely think its one of his best movies. the Vinci Code be in the top 10...

Easily in the top 5

24 Turner and Hooch

It's so cute and heartbreaking!

25 Toy Story 4

It took too long to see this movie on the list. #1 is private ryan but #2 is absolutley toy story 4
