Writer's Block: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

I have never enjoyed Tom Hanks performances. Every role he plays, it seems to be Tom Hanks saying the words of a different person while still being Tom Hanks. There is one movie of his I have not seen (and will not see because the subject matter is painful for me) which friends have said include actual acting by Mr. Hanks: Philadelphia. His winning an Oscar for it, I suspect, was not for actual acting but for playing the lead in a groundbreaking, highly controversial film.
