After watching Saving Mr Banks, I analyzed what triggered me emotionally ( watch the movie, brilliant acting by Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson), and I realized that a lot of not all of it had to do with the way that these actors triggered their own emotions within them internally, so that they could make their external physicality choices or actions for their chatacters authentic and believable. Emotions are not just tears or the ability to turn on the water works it is happiness, joy, fear, sadness, anguish, defiance etc. And to each emotional trigger there is a shade or level on intensity. In turn this brought me to the realisation that character authenticity relies very much on the ability of an actor to portray emotional honesty. And emotional honesty can only come from the heart and not the head. As part of my studies here in LA I need to do a lot of movie and script analysis, when you compare the script to the movie simultaneously, you then come to realise the amount of work/choices an actor has to ...
My dad just said that he thought Topher Grace was going to be the next Tom Hanks...
Did Anyone see the PBS special tonight on the Dave Clark Five induction documentary into the Rock & Roll Museum, hosted by Tom Hanks?? It was Terrific!! I always thought the DC5 was the greatest English band during the 'invasion.' Excellent Documentary.great music!
We watched the best PBS special about the Dave Clark Five! So impressive to hear the tributes to their style, attitude, and the influence they had on many musicians. Tom Hanks had a lot to do with the program to induct the DC5 into the R & R Hall of Fame.
Just watched an amazing two-hour PBS special on the Dave Clark Five. Not only informative and nostalgic, it also delved into the Musical written and produced by Dave Clark--'Time'-which featured music by Julian Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Freddie Mercury, Dionne Warwick and others, PLUS the last performance by Sir Laurence Olivier. A fascinating description of the play followed and I was amazed at the deep respect in which Dave Clark, and the DC5 themselves, were held by such luminaries as Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Ian McKellen, Sharon Osborn, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks, and others. If you can catch a rerun of the special, do so; it's well worth it.
Just watching a documentary on "The Dave Clark Five"...its very good..has interviews with Paul McCartney, Twiggy, some fans, Tom Hanks..I had actually forgotten about themn. They were very famous for awhile and I guess now live on their royalties. Funny,they stopped while the Stones, Beatles kept going.

To date a list of actors I have never seen in 'thier' movies. Tom Cruise, Nick Cage, Ashton Kucher, Will Smith, Richard Gere, Keifer Sutherland, Tom Hanks,Bradley Cooper,Robert Pattinson,Matt Damon,Leonardo Dicaprio, Ben Affleck, Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal,Matt Mconaughey, just to name a few. And I am immune to advertisements. Maybe it is a result from my Grandfather telling me watching TV a waste of time. I don't think I have missed much. Thanks Grandpa.
Tom Hanks, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John and more join us on 9.1 WNIN tonight at 8/7c to discuss Dave Clark Five in "Glad All Over."
Shrien Dewani arriving tomorrow. Oscar trial back on TV. It's like auditions opening for Tom Hanks' Ladykillers 2.
RIP, Mickey Rooney. Take note, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, and even Liam Neeson; that was REAL talent! Hollywood lost a true legend today. :(
I just want to let you all know that I love Tom Hanks ❤️ favorite actor who's alive. Oh and Kevin bacon too 😍
So, just watched "Saving Mr. Banks" for the first time and while Emma Thompson spends most of her role with an unpleasant and overboard furrowed brow ( way too much time if you ask me) but Tom Hanks? Is there ANYTHING that man can't do? He's our generation's Jimmy Stewart IMHO~! I'll watch him in anything and know I'll like it. All those who are for Tom being the best actor of our time hit the "LIKE" icon. To a "next level down" I'd put DeNiro, Pacino and Walken then you get into Clooney, Pitt, Colin Farrel, Depp, Del Torro, DeCaprrio territory. I've grown to appreciate Josh Brolin's work too but Hanks? Give the man his trophys and $'s 'cause if he's in it? I'm going to see it~! As for women? I'll take Cate Blanchette as my favorite and a stand-out. Beyond her, they all seem to mash together somehow. Anyone have any favorite female actresses beyond Meryll Streep and Helen Mirren that is?(they are in a class to their own IMHO.)
So, Dave Letterman's retiring next year. I feel...old. I first became aware of Letterman in high school, and with respect to Johnny Carson, Dave became *my* talk show host. He influenced my sense of humor, or maybe my then-developing sense of humor just meshed with his show's much better than any other talk show's. We still have Craig Ferguson, and Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert. But it's not gonna feel right after Letterman's retirement. Stil, if Bill Murray was the first guest Letterman had on both Late Night and the Late Late Show, then his last guests have *got* to be Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen.
Tom Hanks, Prince William, Nigel Kennedy, David Cameron and Robert De Niro. Your boys took one *** of a beating today.
Meryl Streep and Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson are all oscar winners that went to PUBLIC SCHOOLS. so did George Clooney and Will Smith.
John Travolta, Chevy Chase, and Bill Murray all turned down the role of Forrest Gump, which was then played by Tom Hanks.
John Travolta, Bill Murray, and Chevy Chase all turned down the role of Forrest Gump before Tom Hanks accepted it.
Who will be guests in Letterman's last week? Would bet Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Steve Martin. Final guest Bill Murray? Bubble: Bruce Willis
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone thats been playing along in the Best Actor tournament. Its been fun doing this. I hope more of you join in the fun as we move forward. I want to recognize here a few actors that did not make the list. Spencer Tracy, Jack Lemmon, Timothy Olyphant, Jim Caveizel, Jackie Chan, Harvey Keitel, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Michael Douglas, Kurt Russell, Chow Yun Fat, Forest Whitaker, Gary Oldman, John Cusack, Clark Gable, Christoph Waltz, Gregory Peck Andy Lau, & James Dean. Also in forming my list I made a mistake and left someone out. Tim Roth, Star of Reservoir Dogs, Four Rooms & Planet of the Apes. All of these actors were worthy of being in the tournament but only 64 made it in. Now lets go to round 3! Seed Tom Hanks vs Seed Harrison Ford OK Every actor has a film they wish they could erase from their filmography. So for fun this round I will name a stinker for each one. Tom Hanks. The Man with One Red Shoe. Total garbage, unfunny comedy. Harrison Ford. Hollywoo ...
Me and my friend Peter Miller watched David Letterman's first Late Night broadcast on February 1st 1982. Another close friend William Ferentz and I watched Dave together on a regular basis. I clearly remember his last show at NBC with Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks and his first show at CBS with Bill Murray. Other than Johnny Carson, David Letterman is the best Late Night performer in history. I will continue to watch until he retires some time next year. Good luck Dave.
the internet tells me it was Tom Hanks and Bruce. Bill Murray has to be on the list for "last guests"
Feel like Tom Hanks on the Money Pit "we've got stairs"!!!
Chris Martin: The Pacific [Blu-ray]: Band of Brothers producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks present this gripping
After a discussion on Carrie Rickey's page about underrated Eva Marie Saint performances, I rewatched "Nothing in Common" for the first time in years. Thoughts: a) This might be Garry Marshall's best directorial effort, although I realize that's damning with faint praise. b) Pre-"Big," it proved that Tom Hanks could play the goofball and handle the serious stuff -- in a way, it's his "It's a Wonderful Life" in terms of transitioning from one phase of his career to another. (And the resemblance ends there.) c) This was a pre-"Mad Men" piece of pop culture that made advertising seem super-cool. But it's only in watching it as an adult that I can see just how glib and shallow Hanks' character is from the get-go; in college, I was as charmed by him as the other characters. d) I miss Bess Armstrong.
The Burkes Peerage and Baronetage, a comprehensive aristocratic genealogy resource, reveals that all 44 U.S. presidents have carried European royal bloodlines into office over the course of history. This includes Bill Clinton, the Bush family, Barack Obama, John Kerry, and so on and so forth. If we truly live in a democratic system, how is it that every single person brought into office has been of French and European royal descent? To make things even more peculiar is the fact that Tommy Lee Jones, Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, and Tom Hanks (actually, most of Hollywood’s biggest stars, believe it or not, the implied fame of a royal bloodline makes their choice of career obvious) also descend from this lineage. The Catholic Church is a big player in this disturbing hidden world and keeps records of these ancient families. Earlier in 2013, Pope Benedict XVI became the first Pope to resign since the 1400s. Some argue that the real reason was due to Benedict being blackmailed by these . ...
I'm out here in LA with my wife Susan on Spring Break visiting my her daughter who works for Warner Brothers. And who do you think we ran into? Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks! They bought us dinner!!!
Members of the show visit NYC and meet Tom Hanks & Sigourney Weaver
WOW!!! Can you imagine anyone else other than Tom Hanks saying, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get?" Forrest Gump was almost going to be played by John Travolta… until he turned it down.
Somehow I missed a number of major Tom Hanks movies that came out in the last two years and now I’m trying to fix it. I started off with ‘Cloud Atlas’ and I have to say I really liked it. With its lengthy narrative and a super complicated plot it's not an easy watch, but I really appreciated the depth of it and the messages it conveys. Tom Hanks is at his best and it’s always nice to see Halle Berry, in fact the whole cast is quite amazing. Not to mention the fact that most of them played several completely different characters. Now I think I gotta get my hands on the book. So if you still haven’t watched it, I totally recommend it!
btw Dan Brown's Inferno: Tom Hanks to return in 2015 film - via
Awesome Bruin Flyers game on NBC- I'm going to the club to hit golf balls! WINTER IS OVER! We made it to the Elite 8, hockey pre playoffs and MLB opening day! I feel like Tom Hanks in Cast Away when the trade winds changed!
Butler for Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney & the Queen looks back on his career|
Why on earth was Tom Hanks not even nominated for Captain Phillips? Did the Academy not see those last 3 minutes?
Saving Mr.Banks: beautiful movie. LOVE Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson and Paul Giamatti and ALL. Beautiful story.
Just watched Comedian - it's like the War Movie of stand-up comedy with Jerry Seinfeld as Tom Hanks and Colin Quinn as Tom Sizemore.
Saturday morning random thoughts... Cameron Diaz should never get a bob haircut ever again.(something about Mary) not curt. I wonder if wonder bread was named that because the guy who invented it was wondering for so long about what to call it. I've always wanted to name a bar Hump & Barf. You know why... I need a nurse at my house to bring me more warm blankets when I'm freezing.. If I got a dollar for everything my son leaves laying around, I'd be rich...like really rich :/ Tom Hanks looks old Bill Cosby looks old Brad Pitt looks old Morgan Freeman might really be God. And It ain't no party til it's a Party Down South ;)
Just got back From the movies. Saw The Monuments Men. George Clooney, Matt Damon and Tom Hanks worked well together.
So this real estate agent sends me this link to this house in Columbus. The only thing that keeps popping in my head is that Tom Hanks movie "The Money Pit".
Captain Phillips, from Sony Pictures, stars Tom Hanks and was nominated for six Academy Awards. http:/…
Looking for a good Red Box rental choice...watching trailers...So far The Counselor with Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt & Penelope Cruz...and Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks has caught our eye, any suggestions?
A little film trivia. Tom Hanks was the perfect Forrest Gump. Did you know the role had been offered to John Travolta, who turned it down?
Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, and John Candy are the 3 best actors of all time hands down
Watched Saving Mr. Banks on On Demand. Very good movie. Tom Hanks did a nice job as Walt Disney.
Tom Hanks is hands down one of the best actors of all time
So I watched Saving Mr. Banks last night, and am watching Mary Poppins today while I sew. Tom Hanks did not disappoint, and if his portrayal of Walt Disney was at all accurate, I am in awe of Mr. Disney. And I think Mary Poppins will become the source for my new mantras. In ev'ry job that must be done There is an element of fun you find the fun and snap! The job's a game And ev'ry task you undertake Becomes a piece of cake A lark! A spree! It's very clear to see. Such wise words...now I dare you to stop singing that one in your head. :)
Watching the movie punch line with Tom Hanks, Sallie Fields and John Goodman and loving it!
what do you think of Tom Hanks' son Colin as Travis Marshall on Dexter?
I still haven’t seen Cloud Atlas. I love the book & the idea of the film, but Tom Hanks / Halle Berry put me off, as actors
Tom Hanks one of my fave actor alongside LeoDiCaprio. JMo&Colin, and Meryl Streep. Other person if alive would be Princess Diana
Does anyone else ever think how weird it's going to be when all the stars we love now are dead like: Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks etc 😰😢😢😱
Tom Hanks is an excellent actor. Captain Philips>
Not a bad movie so far... LOVE Tom Hanks...

What do you get when you superimpose legendary Oscar winning actor Tom Hanks' head into the most ridiculous scenarios you could ever imagine? Buckwheat Groats has the answer... and it's this. What.
Big is a great film, Tom Hanks is such a brilliant actor
The way Tom Hanks portrays Josh is superb. The little moments that children do. The short attention. The innocence. Love it.
Ben Affleck is a 10x better actor than Tom Hanks ever thought about being!!
There are no words to describe my love for Tom Hanks
Absolutely love Tom Hanks, he's amazing in everything
hands down Tom Hanks. Not only a great actor, but he also seems like a great guy.
Unacceptably in love with Tom Hanks and already decided that if I have a son he will be called Tom
Big is on, Tom Hanks is a legend, what a talented actor !
Big is the only Tom Hanks film I'll watch and I absolutely love it
I love watching the film 'Big' with Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks netted his first Best Actor Oscar nomination for Big back in 1989, but he lost out to Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.
Tom Hanks is my favorite actor of all time.
Big is on with Tom Hanks. I love this movie.
After watching the Great Gatsby and Wolf of Wall Street Leonardo DeCaprio is tied with Tom Hanks as my favorite actor
I started love Tom Hanks when i watched Big
Finally watched - Great movie and Tom Hanks is incredible as always

I love this quote: "That's what us storytellers do, we restore order with imagination." - Tom Hanks as Walt Disney
You've Got Mail is still one of my favorite movies. I love Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks.
Tom Hanks is the best actor of all time and if you disagree you're wrong.
Why is this sub acting like she has the unpopular opinion of thinking Tom Hanks is a good actor?
If you're a born on July 9, you share your birthday with Tom Hanks, O.J. Simpson and Courtney Love
If anyone were ever to question why Tom Hanks is the best actor in the world. Captain Phillips is the answer.
If you love gangsta rap, comedy and Tom Hanks you gotta listen to this song. It should blow up the internet
BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE from Tom Hanks on that last scene! :') Wow! He really is a good and an effective actor! :D.
I love that part in Cast Away where the storm starts & Tom Hanks looks at the volleyball & says "

Whenever I watch a Tom Hanks movie I get chills because I just love him so much
I think Tom Hanks is the best actor ever and the Godfather is overrated
Finally got around to watching Saving Mr. Banks tonight. Such a fantastic movie. Couldn't love Tom Hanks more in that role.
Captain Phillips is one of the best films I have ever seen! Tom Hanks is an amazing actor!
Tom Hanks is such a great actor omg
Wow! Finally saw Captain Phillips! Cannot recommend it enough!! A great movie. Tom Hanks is THE BEST actor of our time.
Tom Hanks is an incredible incredible actor.
Big is my favourite film and Tom Hanks is my favourite actor 👌
Tom Hanks is really good at sounding like an actor trying to impersonate an accent when he is impersonating an accent.
Tom Hanks in history class b/c Saving Private Ryan. Wicked sad movie but he's such a good actor
If you are inclined to waste 172 minutes of your life you should watch Cloud Atlas. It is about (insert answer here) and stars Tom Hanks in about six roles. It cost 102 million dollars to make, which proves that rich people can be stupid too.
Tom Hanks is probably my favorite actor. He's incredible.
In the "caper movie" genre - the more plot twists the better. I really liked "American Hustle". And there's always seeing Bradley Cooper with his hair rolled up in little foam curlers... I also liked "Saving Mr. Banks" - an amiable venture, that elicited very good performances from Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Giamatti, Ruth Wilson and young Annie Rose Buckley as well as an all too brief appearance by Rachel Griffiths. Emma Thompson is solid, and Tom Hanks is as reliably competent as always.
Just got done watching "Captain Phillips " not gonna lie I lightweight cried at the end! That was good!! Tom Hanks is such a good actor!!
Please share with Maui Actors. One Day Only! April 4th Feel free to contact Scott scottActing for the Camera” Method Acting is the most misunderstood acting technique in the world. Much of what you read on the internet about it is wrong. You hear the phrase used often to describe an actors performance - usually when they're overacting or throwing tantrums on set or "living as the character" off-camera too. In reality, none of these things have anything to do with the Method. Nothing. Method Acting has been called everything from "brilliant" to "dangerous" (and I believe it can be both)... BUT, there's a reason it’s still used. And, that the ranks of Method trained actors include: Christian Bale, Marlon Brando, Adrien Brody, Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Daniel Day-Lewis, James Dean, Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda, Hilary Swank, Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Anne Hathaway, Dustin Hoffman, Heath Ledger, Matthew McConaugh . ...
Watching Captain Phillips solidified that Tom Hanks is my favorite actor.
Just got around to watching Captain Phillips.Great film! Tom Hanks top class as always.
BRAVO! I have no words. just wacht it! Tom Hanks gives one of the best performances of his… ★ Captain Phillips —

Captain Phillips. WOW. Tom Hanks is INCREDIBLE. If you haven't seen the movie, you need to.
Has anybody seen that Captain Phillips movie with Tom Hanks?
Google. No one is pausing Captain Phillips to wonder what else this Tom Hanks fella has been in. They've seen them all.
Watching Captain Phillips and all I can think of is when Tom Hanks took a picture with a passed out guy in a bar.
If you haven't watched Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks- Watch it right now. Amazing movie!!
Captain Phillips was an excellent movie. Up there with Jimmy Dugan for Tom Hanks' best role of all-time
Captain Phillips is one of the greatest movies Tom Hanks has ever been in
Haven't seen Captain Phillips yet, but *** I love that line when the pirate tells Tom Hanks "Look at me. Look at me. I'm the captain now."
Captain Phillips may be a fine movie, but it's not the one to use to sell Google Play. Even with Tom Hanks there's lighter fare.
Finally watched Captain Phillips today & it was so good. I just love Tom Hanks.
Captain Phillips had me routing for the Somalis (even tho I didn't want Tom Hanks to die)
Captain Phillips was phenominal. I was underwhelmed with Tom Hanks' performance at the beginning but by the end he was on fire.
There's an ad that uses a clip from that Captain Phillips movie & it really highlights how much Tom Hanks should be in commercials not films
Captin Phillips is such a good movie. Glad I went to the theater to see it and now I bought it. Tom Hanks is the best.

Thanks for recommending this movie i, Ida Grasya! You were right with what you said about Tom Hanks, still being the cream of the crop, portraying the captain of the hijacked Maersk Alabama vessel in this real-life film.Any viewer can have compelling reason to be nervous witnessing this cinematic, deep blue sea voyage heightened with conflicts, leaving the captain in a situation comparable to *** i should say this movie is a must-watch especially that we have friends or friends' hubbies working as seafarers. My salute to all of you!
Lies based on con-men in popular films? Did this dude at one point have Leo Decaprio over only to have Tom Hanks just miss him?

Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson star in Saving Mr. Banks, available now on Rogers on Demand (Ch. 100)
MOVIE REVIEW - Saving Mr. Banks : 4.5 GUITARS! Author P.L. Travers reflects on her childhood after reluctantly meeting with Walt Disney, who seeks to adapt her Mary Poppins books for the big screen. Heartwarming story, well made. great acting with Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti. Im hot and cold when it comes to Colin Farrell but I Liked this role for him.
'Saving Mr. Banks' stars Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, now on DVD & Blu-ray ...
Thomas Jeffrey Hanks the all american actor, producer, writer, director. Tom Hanks has portray a shrimp boat captain in Forrest Gump, a FedEx employee in Cast Away, American Soldier in Saving Private Ryan, Prison Officer in Green Mile just a couple of acts he's done. In the past three decades Hanks has won 40 awards including Best Actor, Favorite All-Time Entertainer and Best Actor in Leading Role just a few of many. And has appeared in more than 40 movies thats at least one film per year since he started some cases more considering he started 36 years ago. The first decade and a half of my life I saw Tom as the voice of Woody. After a couple of his best films things changed for me. I refuse to ever search for someone better than Tom Hanks. Cheers To the Man of the Centery.
From the Chester Public Library ... The public is invited to attend one or both of the following movie matinees at the Chester Public Library this week - Thursday, March 20 at 1:00 p.m. SAVING MR. BANKS (rated PG13/125 minutes) "The story of how Walt Disney courted P.L. Travers into letting him option the rights to Mary Poppins is brought to the screen in this non-fiction drama starring Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, and Colin Farrell. A doting father, Walt Disney (Hanks) promises his adoring daughters that he will bring their favorite fictional nanny Mary Poppins to the big screen. Little does Walt realize that surly author P.L. Travers has no intention of seeing her most famous creation bastardized on the big screen, a fact that makes keeping his promise a difficult endeavor. Years later, however, when Travers' book sales begin to slow, dwindling finances drive her to schedule a meeting with Disney to discuss the film rights to the beloved story. For two weeks in 1961, a determined Disney does his absolute b ...
Just saw a WONDERFUL movie the other night on pay per view... Saving Mr. Banks...unsung and beautifully done film... Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks...with a surprisingly good performance by Colin Farrell in a supporting role and a not-so-surprising good performance by Paul Giamatti in a supporting role...I thoroughly enjoyed this movie...a gift to us all wrapped in layers...the tension between writer and movie maker to stay true to the message AND entertain...and so much more! All about the making of Mary Poppins...a truly rich movie experience.
Join Molly tomorrow night as she shows Saving Mr Banks starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. This delightful film tells the story of Walt Disney's courtship of P.L. Travers to bring her classic Mary Poppins (you may have heard if it) to the big screen. Doors open at 6:45 for the 7:00 showing of this PG-13 rated film.
If you haven't watched "Saving Mr. Banks", you should! What a wonderful, telling story, and Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson are superb. I have had a lifelong bond with "Mary Poppins", actually probably more a connection to Julie Andrew's portrayal of Mary Poppins, and this film has just strengthened the bond. It's difficult to get me to sit in one spot for any length of time, but THIS kept me riveted.
Tom Hanks, Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen were all considered for the part of Andy Dufresne. Hanks turned it down because he was committed to Forrest Gump. Costner liked the script a lot but was then embroiled in the filming of Waterworld. Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Paul Newman and Robert Redford were all considered for the part of Red. In the original novella, Red is a middle-aged Irishman with graying red hair. However, Frank Darabont always had Morgan Freeman in mind for the role because of his authoritative presence, demeanor and deep voice.
Emma Thompson ad Tom Hanks was awesome in
If any of you guys ever get the chance to watch the mini-series Band of Brothers you better do it. It's a ten part mini-series about a regiment of paratroopers fighting in Europe during WWII. It was produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, so it's just as entertaining/badass as Saving Private Ryan except it's all based on what actually happened. Every character was a real person they interviewed. Every now and then SPIKE TV will play all 10 parts uncensored in a marathon.g
Do you remember in the movie "Saving Private Ryan" when Tom Hanks uses a Soldiers gum to stick a mirror on a stick to spot enemy positions on D-Day? Today we had to put gum on a ruler, to stick in our Xerox printer, trying to retrieve a piece of paper that was causing it to jam every few pages. Ended up losing them gum in the printer with the paper, until we got both of the boagies out. The MC struggle is real!
Even if it was a complete white wash of reality, "Saving Mr. Banks" was very charming. I would watch Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks watch paint dry. Luckily this was way better than that.
We saw Saving Mr Banks this evening via Amazon on demand. Great movie! We really enjoyed it. Tom Hanks does an excellent job of capturing the essence and charm of Walt Disney. Emma Thompson is magnificent...but then she always is.
One of the movies I feel Steven Spielberg is hardly ever given enough credit for. It doesn't use CGI, special effects, explosions, aliens, or dinosaurs. It's simple, clean, and has two of my favorite actors in Tom Hanks and Stanley Tucci acting side by side with one another. It's a great comedy-drama with a little romance thrown in. I adore this film so much ^_^
was leaning towards that one but then i thought, Billy Crystal or Tom Hanks?
This just occured to me. George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr. and Will Smith will find it hard to actually win a Best Actor Oscar, even if they get to be nominated. No T No Shade, I mean, I love them three, but think about it: in every movie they are in, they just play different versions of themselves - George will always be a dashing debonair, Robert will always be a good-looking smart *** and Will will always be a wise-cracking brotha. There will be minor variations, but you can still see traces of these personas. They don't lose themselves to a character and completely inhabit them, not like how Tom Hanks did with Forrest Gump, know what I mean?

Captain Phillips was brilliant. Tom Hanks is a truly amazing actor.
Am I the only one who thinks Tom Hanks is like, the best actor in the history of forever?
Just 2 things though: 1) Is it possible for Tom Hanks to make a bad movie (forgetting about The Polar Express)?
Just saw in 'Captain Phillips'. This is why I love Tom Hanks. He is such a captivating actor. Oscar worthy performance.
I just saw Captain Phillips and im amazed tom hanks wasnt nominated for an Oscar.
Captian Phillips is now in my top 5 favourite films firstly I would like to point out that tom hanks is a grade A legend!! And second the full film had me gripped from start to finish and I was actually sobbing my heart out at the end! The film was a little bit close to home considering my uncle is sailing round the African sea!! I'm just thankful he has a gun in case those *** pirates tried to get on his boat ha all in all it's a top notch watch :) xx

Tom Hanks in is legendary, as per usual.

Omg...the movie Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks was so good.
I am tom hanks in castaway n this is Wilson
SPEAKING OF Tom Hanks, I'm going to watch the green mile
It's like you are starring in the sequel to that Tom Hanks film.
Forrest Gump or Castaway anything with Tom Hanks in it really. My fav actor.
Why Tom Hanks didn't win an Oscar for his performance in Captain Phillips is BEYOND me! That man can act.
Watching Cast Away... and the part where Tom Hanks knocks his tooth out just made my mouth ache! Ouch.
Tom hanks is possibly the best actor in the world. Absolutely outstanding in
Just watched the film Captain Phillips. Wat an epic film. Really brilliant. And Tom Hanks is brilliant.
I think Tom Hanks is my favorite person in the universe
Captain Phillips was one of the best films ever. Absolutely amazing!!! Tom Hanks is superb!
When Tom Hanks took on the role of narrator for National Geographic’s Killing Lincoln, it turns out he was telling a family story. Hanks revealed that he is related to America’s iconic president through President Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks. Nancy was an orphan by the age of nine and lived for a t...
Captain Phillips was a lot better than I expected, tom hanks class as per!
Watching all the Oscar nominated movies. Captain Phillips was Amazing! Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi did a wonderful job. Next up 12 years a slave!!!
Tom Hanks in shock at the end of the film 'Captain Phillips' was quality, had me thinking back to my accident last year.
Just watched Captain Phillips omg what a film. That's why Tom hanks is still my favourite actor. Awesome film!
Live is like a box of chocolate' love Forest Gump just finished watching it, its incredible!!! Tom Hanks u are a good actor!
Captain Philips - based on true story about a freight ship captain dealing with pirates on his boat. The stranded captain shows great wisdom in the situation. And bravo to Tom Hanks on his as usual great acting in his role. The highlight comes at the end of film. 7.5/10
... and Tom Hanks is a fantastic Walt Disney. But the movie's not something everyone would be able to watch.
How did Tom Hanks get ignored 4 this one!
yo when Tom Hanks looses Wilson in Castaway. it's genuinely heartbreaking and it still makes me sad every time I think about it
Just watched Captain Philips what a good film love Tom Hanks
no that's A league of Their Own with Tom Hanks
One of my favorite Tom Hanks films. ;)
Saving Mr Banks... got me weeping into my brew. Tom Hanks just can't do wrong!
Neves & I watched recently a film that shows why Tom Hanks is without a doubt one of the best actors ever. If you haven't seen "Captain Phillips" as yet, don't miss it, the factual story of the "Maersk Alabama" Highjacking by Somali pirates in 2009. Just brilliant.
Just watched great film. Tom Hanks doesn't do stinkers
Just saw the cast of 'Captain Phillips' on broad well minus Tom Hanks
the hard part they've skipped. Making the fire by rubbing the stones. Watch Cast Away. You'll see how Tom Hanks makes it :P
Tom Hanks and Pirates, what more could you want? Tonight's Watch is Captain Phillips.
Movie of the day; I havent watched a Tom Hanks movie since... I think . is my fav
Tom Hanks has to be the best actor on earth right now, surely? The end scene in Captain Phillips almost killed me.
Still reckon Kevin Spacey,Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks would've fitted in perfectly in 30's+40's-genuine movie stars
Apollo 13 what an adventure thank you tom hanks
In all seriousness I did like the movie. Tom hanks is a brilliant actor you could probably smell it on him.
Just finished watching Captain Phillips of tom hanks it was one of the movies that made it to oscars this year it didn't won the best movie award but it did won the best supporting actor award (Abdi) a somalian actor this movie will keep you on tenter hook all the time and you will be anxious to know what next .
Post run down time: watching Big. I LOVE Tom Hanks.
is a truly brilliant film. Tom Hanks has got to be one of the best actors of our time. What a story too
Who's your favorite actor? — cant say one there are lots .tom hanks George Clooney jude law clive owen..
we just watched it tonight! So good, no-one reduces me to tears like Tom Hanks. I wish he was my next-door neighbour.
turns out tom hanks was a bit of a dish in 1989! oooft, could I love him more!
The problem with Americans is that they're more likely to celebrate Tom Hanks for playing the role well than they are to celebrate Captain Richard Phillips for enduring the kidnapping.
Holy crap - I think I may have banged Tom Hanks.
"If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great.". Tom Hanks
Just finished watching Captain Phillips. Tom Hanks is amazing. Now want to watch Toy Story...
Captain Phillips, what an unexpected great movie. Tom Hanks can act shocked. Nice one Tom.
Watched it last weekend; great film. I blooming love Tom Hanks!
We watched Captain Phillips last evening. Tom Hanks was outstanding. How did he not get nominated for an Academy Award?
You know the scene in the movie You've Got Mail where Meg Ryan is sick & there's Kleenex EVERYWHERE? That's me. Only no daisies or Tom Hanks.
Have never seen a bad tom hanks film. The man is a legend.
just watched Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks, top film recommend
Watching one of my favorite Tom Hanks movie. Green mile
Tom Hanks take a bow; Captain Phillips was a brilliant movie.
Our next movie is Disneys Saving Mr Banks ! Tom Hanks as Walt Disney himself- a comedy portraying how Mary Poppins came to life from the book to a Disney movie:) $2 movie pass-this Friday at 7pm! Pre purchase tickets Now til Thurs
Captain Richard Phillips, played by Tom Hanks, finds himself facing an almost impossible situation as he tries to keep the peace, stay alive, and employ as much diplomacy as possible.
Captain Philips, een must see met Tom Hanks!
"Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour". Tom Hanks
Why do I have this feeling like I am going to end up like Tom Hanks in 'Money Pit'?
Captain Phillips nbrlliant film with tom hanks
What a great movie! Once again Tom Hanks gives a superb performance!
Tom Hanks is amazing and did another amazing film "Captain Phillips" wicked film!
When i was a little girl I thought Mary Poppins would some day appear at a window of our flat and I believed Julia Andrews was the real one. Saving Mr. Banks is the wonderful story of the Mary Poppins's film making and Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks make an astonishing performance as Mrs Travers and Walt Disney. I loved that film, a wonderful tribute to two magical people who believed and made it happen.
This makes me love Tom Hanks even more
They really went out on a limb with that Saving Mr. Banks trailer. Tom Hanks goose stepping across the screen telling Holocaust jokes seemed in bad taste to me.
Tom hanks looks so different in this film Captain Philips xx
YOU KNOW YOURE FROM SACRAMENTO WHEN: You pronounce " Sacramento " SACRAMENNO. Wearing purple, black and silver is a fashion statement. Driver's think a stop sign is just a suggestion and a yellow light means gun it to 80. You know parking in midtown or downtown is nearly impossible. The best restaurants in town start with "El" or "Los." People break out coats when the temperature drops below 70. You can cross a street and go from a "rich" neighborhood to a "poor" neighborhood. You still don't know your way around downtown. You complain about traffic and the cost of living. You notice people will put 22 inch rims on ANYTHING! You laugh when a Southern Californian refers to I-5 as "the 5". You know that not everyone in California surfs. On the weekend you can always find something to do but you have to drive to get there. Someone mentions the State Fair and you immediately think of the riot and a kid flying from the ferris wheel. The closest thing to a beach Sacramento has is Folsom Lake and the American Ri ...
This just in the Malaysian Airlines plane was taken by Somali pirates Tom Hanks is negotiating for the movie rights
The movie Captain Phillips was absolutely amazing and only solidifies why Tom Hanks is my favorite actor.
And I know what I have to do now. I got to keep breathing. Because tomorrow, the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? Tom Hanks as
Amazing movie, Tom Hanks at his best!!! :)
Just another reason to love Tom Hanks!!
Someone said it would be fun to drink with Tom Hanks. Ya it sure was...
Want a brilliant film . Try Captain Philips with Tom hanks. Or Brilliant series House of Cards with Kevin spacey
From the man who gave us "Thomas Gump" from the 'name as many Tom Hanks film as you can' game... Pub quiz and Uncle Mark. "What is the largest type of tiger?" " Snow leopard." "Who painted The Water Lillies?" "An artist." Lord give me strength.
Anyone ever see the movie "Cast Away" with Tom Hanks? I'm praying for a similar unbelievable miraculous outcome for the Malaysian plane and passengers missing.
Probably one of, if not my favorite Tom Hanks movie of all time.
A few months ago I picked Tom Hanks over Tom Cruise. I would like to recant that decision. Tom Cruise is the business.
