Appreciating The Prime Of Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks' output has been fairly lukewarm in recent years, but man oh man was his 90s prime amazing. Just look at this streak of films.

(1992)


(1993)


(1993)


(1994)


(1995)


(1998)


(1999)


(2000)

I love Tom Hanks, why doesn't he get those kinds of roles anymore?

Those are definitely great movies you listed, I'd say his prime was 1988-2000. He's yet to surprise me in anything recently.

I am looking forward to Charlie Wilson's War though.

We are all forgetting one movie though:



It's not in the prime period, but it's a mid-'80s classic.
