Mar 31, 2008 - nodrog on Tom Hanks
An American Icon

Tom Hanks has given us many great movies and now as a producer/director gives us meaningful film in the form of tv mini-series such as "John Adams", "Band of Brothers", and other work that educates as well as entertains.

Mar 06, 2008 - jimmyh on Tom Hanks
Complete Douchebag

You have to have some respect for an actor who consistently stars in blockbuster hits. But monetary success and popularity is not an indication of talent. Sure, he does a satisfactory job of acting, but he's so damn goofy that he gets really irritating, really quick. I will say that I thought he did a fair job in "The Green Mile," but in almost every film since the overrated "Forrest Gump," his characters have all seemed to channel Gump. Even in "Charlie Wilson's War," Hanks had more than a few Gump moments. I can only hypothesize that he gets so many of these roles because people find his Southern accent charming. Yet after enduring about two or three feature-length Hanks showcases, the accent becomes so tiresome that it causes one's mind to gradually deteriorate into a thick, mushy substance.
So I'll just have to endure the scoffs and jeers I'll undoubtedly get from people whenever I politely decline going out to see Hanks' latest film. One thing is certain - if I have to sit through another Hank-fest, I'm afraid I'll either become completely brain-dead or just extremely violent.
