    I love tom hanks(not on looks but mainly for his amazing talent and wonderful movies he has brought us!)
    my favorites:
    -you've Got Mail(F-O-X!LOL)
    -Sleeping in Seattle-great chick flick, plus this one's got VG, who has the best scene with tom when they make fun of love affair!LOL
    -Forest Gump
    -Green Mile-bawled my eyes out!
    *these are just my favorites, but i basically like every movie he has made except Saving private ryan(too bloody for me!) and cast away, too boring! but very well acted! :D

    Check out his filmography at the IMDB.

    I've seen most of Hanks' movies and he's one of my favorite actors. I like actors who can contain their performance and express a lot with a little--and he's one of the best. There aren't many actors who could carry a movie like Cast Away (he deserved the Oscar for meeting the challenge alone; it was an infinitely more challanging role than that in Gladiator). I look forward to seeing Road to Perdition--my husband didn't want to go.

    Tom Hanks is definitely one of my favorite actors. I loved him in Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump, You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, and Cast Away.

    Apollo 13 is a movie I loved since I first saw it. I could never tire of it! I practically know it by heart!

    I absolutely love Tom Hanks!! He probably is one of my favorite actors...he's good in all the movies i've seen. Especially Sleepless in Seattle which is a classic. I'm surprised he never dated Meg Ryan cause they star in like 5 movies together

    Love Tom Hanks! Loved him in A Leauge of their Own and Catch Me If You Can in particular. I have yet to see him in cast away, though I plan to do so sometime.

    he's been in some many movies and he's played so many different characters! It's hard to keep track

    I luved him in A League of Their Own when he peed in front of them for like 5 minutes straight...i laugh my head off everytime i watch that scene :LOL:

    LOL...I remember that part. I love how his character changes throughout the course...I couldn't stand him in the beginning, but when he actually starts to care...*sigh* That's the Jimmy Dugan that's good! The World Series always gets to me....I can't watch it w/o crying.
