Tom Hanks is an actor that’s been on top of Hollywood for decades. He’s done so much movies – not all of them amazing if we’re being honest – that it’s hard to remember what the very best of his movies are.
Let’s peek into Tom Hanks’ career and see which movies of his are the best.
The Toy Story Series
I mean, there’s no real argument here, is there? The Toy Story series are amazingly fun and Tom Hanks will always be Woody to some of us.
Forrest Gump was the movie of an entire generation. Not only does the film run you through about 30 years of American pop culture, it also makes you cheer for the underdog.
I mean, considering the biggest part of this movie had a cast of one person, Tom Hanks had to be able to carry a movie or this one would’ve just been incredibly boring to look at.
A movie about homosexuality and aids in a time when homosexuality wasn’t as accepted as it is now. If you haven’t watched this yet, it’s worth your time. Be careful though: it’s a tearjerker.
Just Tom Hanks doing what Tom Hanks does best: play a strong character and knock it out the park.
The Green Mile
The Green Mile is just another one of those classic movies in a long list of movies where Tom Hanks leaves you feeling something after watching it.
The Da Vinci Code
I mean, they’re good books, so they’re good movies. Tom Hanks will lead you through the dark secrets of the Vatican in an epic journey that spans multiple movies and leaves you at the edge of your seat!
Saving Private Ryan
Steven Spielberg made what is probably considered to be one of the best movies about World War II when he made Saving Private Ryan. And what a clever idea it was to let Tom Hanks play in it.
