Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks’ favorite movies (again, considering the source, I was curious):

- 2001: A Space Odyssey (can’t debate that, although it gets really slow in some parts)
- Boogie Nights (nice)
- Fargo (great movie)
- The Godfather (a classic)

My problems comes with his number 2 pick: Elephant by Gus Van Sant. He said it was “one of the most moving films I've ever seen.”

What? That was the slowest, most boring movie ever. If Columbine hadn’t happened it would’ve meant nothing to anyone. It’s basically a school day at a typical high school, nothing new or different about it. Then at the very end a kid goes nuts and shoots the place up. Why is this moving?

Sorry, Tom, you missed on that one.
