Hanks and Penny Marshall reunited for this delightful depiction of the first female professional baseball league set against the backdrop of World War II.

1. A League of Their Own (1992)

Hanks was amazing in this movie, and it is only after the movie that you realise the profound impact of his work that you can’t think of anyone else other than him for this role.

2. Forrest Gump (1994)

Hanks earned his first Oscar nomination for the role of a small child who, after wishing to "be big," suddenly grows older.

3. Big (1988)

Hanks' powerful voice helped make celebrity voice acting popular, & Hollywood too frequently overlooks the fact that it takes a special actor like him to convey subtlety and emotion in a cartoon character.

4. Toy Story (1995)

Chuck Noland, a FedEx employee who spends four years stranded on an island, is portrayed by Tom Hanks in a performance that will leave you thinking.

5. Cast Away (2000)

Hanks, who was already a two-time Oscar winner by 1995, proved that his star power knew no bounds as he portrayed NASA's historic efforts to bring the astronauts aboard Apollo 13 back to Earth.

6. Apollo 13 (1995)

He is simply fantastic in this movie, which did not receive a fair shake at the box office. He is daring with his accent, Chaplin-esque in that it is his best physical performance, and simply outstanding.

7. The Terminal (1994)

A film in which Hanks plays Andrew Beckett, a guy who was fired from his company due to his sexuality and AIDS diagnosis. Hanks won his first Best Actor Oscar for Philadelphia.

8. Philadelphia (1993)

The first Spielberg and Tom Hanks collaboration, Hank provides a respectable performance as a captain determined to make any sacrifice to make sure that his soldiers return home from the war.

9. Saving Private Ryan

As a group of pirates holds Captain Richard Phillips and his crew hostage, Captain Phillips chases them. The 2009 true story of the Maersk Alabama hijacking served as the inspiration for Captain Phillips
