At this point, it’s flat out trite to look back on Tom Hanks’ greatest roles. He’s a man who went from America’s favorite son to America’s dad over the course of a decades-long career. You’d be hard pressed to find somebody who hasn’t been moved by at least one of his legendary performances. However, when you have a performer who is defined by a few classic roles (Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Big to name a few) there are many gems that get lost in the shuffle. As such, to celebrate the release of Sully, let’s look back on a few Hanks performances that you might have missed.
When Michael Fairbanks first saw Sam Rami's Spider-Man film back in 2002, everything changed. The experience began a lifelong passion for cinema that has gone undeterred since. In 2009 he began reviewing movies on Youtube, which ultimately sprang into a lifelong passion for film criticism and entertainment reporting. He is currently studying screenwriting at Chapman University. Aside from seeing movies, Michael enjoys making bad puns while playing video games, going on long late night drives, and socializing over large plates of food.
