  1. Great post! I love Tom Hanks as well. I have to recommend that you watch Bridge of Spies he puts in another great performance in that one. Can’t wait to see what he does in Sully! He also comes across as such a lovely and down to earth man when he’s on chat shows!

    • Yeah, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. : ) I do really need to see Bridge Of Spies. I will eventually! He’s always good. Sully sounds like it’ll be a another great role as well. : )

      • Yeah Sully is going to be an incredible role can’t wait to see that film. Bridge of Spies was a favourite of mine from last year I even bought the Blu Ray as soon as it came out πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! He’s such a great actor & seems like a sweetheart in real life too. I’m especially interested in Sully as I’ve been exploring Eastwood’s work more lately. Sounds like it’ll be another great role for Hanks. I think there’s a trailer now? I have to check it out. : )

  2. Tom hanks has been in so many good films. I think ‘Big’ is my personal favourite of his. When I think of Hanks I immediately think of that film.

    • Thanks! Road To Perdition was in my top ten at first. I kept moving stuff around. I love that pic! That’s great that he posed with that guy for his friends. I’d love to have seen the look on that guy’s face when he woke up & saw the pics. : )

  3. Fun list. I think Cast Away is still my favorite. Amazed what Hanks does in that film essentially carrying the whole load through most of it.

  4. cast away would be close to the top for me along with Apollo 13, Big and Saving Private Ryan.

    He was hilarious in A League of Their Own

    Such a fun loving kinda guy!

    Use to love his appearances on The Daily Show and Colbert Report!

  5. I would be deeply suspicious of anyone who didn’t like Tom Hanks — he seems like such a nice guy! And a great actor, too. I’m not sure which of his films I’d put at the top, but Philadelphia, Saving Private Ryan, Apollo 13 and Road to Perdition would be strong contenders. I have an odd soft spot for The Terminal, too.

    And I still need to see Big.

    • Hehe. I know one person who’s suspicious of Hanks because he’s “too nice”. ; ) My hubby has a big soft spot for The Terminal as well! Interesting. It didn’t click with me so much. And you so so SO need to see Big!!!! ; )

  7. Great post Miss Mutant! Great selection and LOVE that picture with the drunk, passed out guy haha! Had not seen that before, obviously makes me love Hanks even more! You’re a legend having Big and Toy Story in the top slots πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Emma! Big & Toy Story are the BEST! : ) Yeah, that guy went out to eat with friends & passed out drunk. Then Tom Hanks showed up & the guy’s friends asked him to pose with their passed out friend (on the guy’s own phone, I think). Imagine waking up to those photos! Hilarious. Hanks is such a nice guy! : )

  8. I love Tom Hanks too, though like you said, everyone seems to. Can’t argue with Toy Story as #1, and I’m glad to see Cast Away, Big, The Green Mile, and Forrest Gump in there too.
    I also highly recommend Bridge of Spies, as well as Saving Mr. Banks (he’s great as Walt Disney). I’m guessing though that you ought to see You’ve Got Mail again; that’s easily my #2 of his movies. I never get tired of watching it.

    • Yeah, I think most everyone likes Hanks. : ) It’s true – I probably need to see You’ve Got Mail again. I only saw it once & only remember preferring Sleepless In Seattle. I really want to see Saving Mr Banks! It’s on my “To Watch” list. : )

  9. Gotta love the man. He’s just so down-to-earth and his acting speaks for itself. Wonderful tribute post!! I loved him in Forrest Gump, that one will always have a special place in my heart ❀
