He, as an Oscar-winning actor, admits there are films that he completely hated. Tom Hanks didn’t step back to keep it real. His honesty got a standing ovation. There are films he didn’t like, there are films of his that his fans didn’t like. That’s not out of the ordinary. This is how things go. Not every day is going to be perfect. 

When someone says a movie is bad compared to when someone says the same film is brilliant. There is a thin line between the two: the actual movie essence. There are his own films he wrote and starred in. The audience absolutely loved them, but he hated himself in it.

Tom Hanks And The Movie Grade Card

He made “That Thing You Do”, in 1996. Tom Hanks redo the original from 1946. He loved making that movie. He wrote it, directed it, and starred in it. 

He enjoyed every moment of that movie. He chose every single person he cast. However, that movie didn’t do great business. After release, it was a disaster. The audience viewed it as some kind of down-the-memory-lane story. They considered it as one of the nine rubicons.

The flop didn’t let him sit back and mourn. He got up on his feet again. Even worse, they called it Tom Hanks ‘cult classic’.

Tom Hanks is an honest actor and a person. Recently he got his degree from Harvard University. He was extremely candid and placed the facts in front of the students.

He often struggles with being true to himself and lying to the audience. He doesn’t like lying to make money. For some of the blockbuster movies, he doesn’t re-watch them. He felt there was a lack of truth. Full of falsehood. It was not satisfying for him.
