Tom Hanks

A League of Their Own

A League of Their Own

It took me a long time to get round to watching this film, despite the fact Mr C has been saying how good it is for many years. I think it might be because Madonna is in it, and, for whatever reason, that was putting me off. Never mind though, because I’ve watched it now and oh my god, I loved it. I really think it has shot up to be one of my favourite films. The women are all brilliant, the relationships interesting, the situation stressful and competitive and sporting and sad and overwhelming all in equal measure.

Every Tom Hanks movie

Just like many people, I’ve been curious how James Corden would get on in the wild world of late night US talk shows. You’ll have noticed my obsession with Jimmy Fallon, I’m sure, and the concept of these daily evening entertainment extravaganzas fascinates me. By all accounts, he did okay and there’s at least something to work with. From the clips I’ve seen, it’s a good start but I just have one question.

Cast Away

Cast Away

I’ve seen this film before, probably a couple of times, and I even saw it in the cinema when it was first out. It always fascinates me that the film is 90% Hanks but not boring. As good as I remembered, and on every viewing, I don’t understand how this film is interesting. Nothing happens. He makes fire. He knocks out a tooth. He spears a fish and drinks some coconut milk. But it’s great!

I was reading one of the websites on my RSS feed list, and came across this question: Which is your favourite Tom Hanks movie? At first, I thought the answer was obvious - Cast Away. But then, when I thought about it a little bit more, there are so many others. Obviously, Forrest Gump, and I am a little bit partial to You’ve Got Mail, which although a weird film, is very loveable.
