After 1536 individual TV Show episodes rated I decided I would change the name of my account from "MrTelevisionShow" to "MrFilmAndTelevisionShow", and thus I will now be rating films on this account also. ~22nd of April 2021

Forrest Gump (1994)
One of the inarguably greatest films of all time. This is only my second time seeing it, the first time I watched about twenty minutes of it every night for about a week and that was many years ago so I didn't quite grasp the true quality of the film, but upon todays rewatch I must say if this film isn't in everyone top ten, then a screw isn't just loose, it's fallen out and rolled far under the bed!
Arguably also Tom Hanks' best performance thus far. At this point he was almost a decade and a half into his film career and this film was my favourite so far, I have throroughly enjoyed all but a few of the films, the ones I didn't enjoy were not bad, rather they weren't my thing (mainly romances).
Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
Sleepless in Seattle
This is not my kind of thing, I was not into it really at all, I am not a fan of romances, I can get behind a good romcom but just a romance like this is not my thing so it's not the films fault I only gave it a seven, though I don't feel it was particularly interesting, but like I say, it's not my thing.
A League of Their Own (1992)
A League of Their Own
This is a very great film, a classic Tom Hanks film too, amazing performances from all from Hanks to Madonna. Although the people who rate films do not agree with me, Tom Hanks has consistantly appeared in really good films from the beginning of his career in 1980. Some films were not great but they were all at the very least good, and worth far more than the IMDb score they recieved.
Radio Flyer (1992)
Half way through I thought to myself "that kid looks like Elijah Wood" and well, that's because he was. Took me a long while to clock the fact though. Tom Hank's voice over was spectacular the performances of both Elijah and Joseph were equally as good, the film leaves you wondering what happened to Bobby, and like the mystery of Tom Bombadil, it is best we never find out and can only guess.
The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990)
The Bonfire of the Vanities
The ending with Morgan Freeman giving his speech was by far the greatest part of this film, the look on Hanks' face was priceless, the actual film itself was good, far better than the IMDb score lets on, not my favourite Hanks film, not by far but it was still very good. I think a seven would have been my score if not for Freeman at the end, I just loved that scene!
Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)
Joe Versus the Volcano
I'm actually interested in seeing a sequel to this, I want to see what Joe does about the fact he was lied to and almost commit suicide plus he now has a rich girlfriend or sort of "wife" so he does need to go back to his dead end job.
Speaking of which, what on Earth was that place where he worked! I get that they made suspect medical stuff but what's with the weird parking at the start, the ridiculous potholed pathway.
Turner & Hooch (1989)
Turner & Hooch
A funny film with a brilliant plot, they don't sacrifice any element of the film in order to advance the plot, everything in the end relates back to the case itself and it is all very well done.
This is the second time I've seen it and I liked it even more the second time.
The 'Burbs (1989)
What a film, another excellent concept executed to the absolutely peak possible effectiveness. Tom Hanks as usual is amazing, and am so glad to see such a brilliant comedic film after the rather non-comincal film about comedians that preceeded it in Tom Hanks' film career.
The bit where one guy, Rumsfield I believe was his name fell from the roof and slipped all the way down was absolutely fantastically funny. Well done to everyone who helped pull that stunt off.
I wish, for a film about comedians it could have been funnier, in my chronological watching of Tom Hanks' films this is my least favourite one so far, not because it's bad, it isn't I just found it to be depressing, the character we end up rooting for begins the story as someone foolish enough to spend five hundred big ones to buy some jokes, how sad is that. Surely nobody in real life would ever do that. I find it more likely that a long time ago in a galaxy far far away there were some wars in the stars than someone would ever buy jokes in order to become a comedian that's like a painter asking someone else to paint for them...
The film contained mostly scenes in the rain and made for a glum two hours, Hanks' character was so willing to sin it was quite unreasonable!
A true classic, a brilliant concept executed to near perfection, precious few flaws with the film, none that even spring to mind.
Tom Hanks is once again brilliant, one thing I think would have made the film even better would have been one or two truly hilarious jokes be they ones that'd fly over the heads of kids or not.
This film is so very close to being a ten in my opinion. I thought it was hilarious and once again, but even more so than usual cannot understand why this film has attracted such poor ratings, it was, in my view a and quoting myself here: "A one-of-a-kind brilliant and hilarious comedy."
Every Time We Say Goodbye (1986)
Every Time We Say Goodbye
I'm not a fan of romances, Romcoms I can get behind but pure romances are not at all my cup of tea. I'm not the biggest war film fan either but I do like them, this film however was quite good, I'd appreciate it more I'm sure if I was into romances, but as I say, I'm not.
This was a good film and my low rating is only as a result of my lack of interest in romances, I must say they were very bold for having so many scenes unsubtitled in Spanish.
Nothing in Common (1986)
Nothing in Common
This film was perhaps a bit slow at times and yet always something interesting was happening, the end was wholesome, I am glad the old man didn't die, even though he clearly wasn't the most moral tool in the shed. I don't think this was really my kind of film, but it sure was still good. Better than the IMDb ratings suggest.
The Money Pit (1986)
The Money Pit
What a film. I classic Tom Hanks film from the eighties. Again however an early Hanks film scores a terribly low IMDb score for no good reason. I liked this film, very much indeed, and so does everyone else that I know who has watched it, granted that's not many people but still!
What a good film! I loved it very much, again this is not the first time I simply cannot understand why it got such a low low rating. I definitely deserves at least a couple integers above what it has been given. From the reviews people seem to like it so I don't know what is going on with the ratings.
What is better this film, or Top Gear building a bridge over the river ****?
Partysaurus Rex (2012)
Not the my usual kind of favourite short and yet this is my favourite of the three toy story toons. Definitely the best purely because it is action packed, Rex, a character with usually precious little to do becomes very popular with the bathroom toys.
Small Fry (2011)
A neat little episode about Buzz getting left behind and a tiny Buzz trying to take his place, only because he wants to get played with rather than being only a display item.
Can't say much more than this other than it's pretty good, always nice to have a little more Toy Story in one's life.
Hawaiian Vacation (2011)
Funny and an excellent addition to the expanded Toy Story universe. I can't say it's the most eventful minisode in the world, but then again it isn't supposed to be. It's just a nice five-or-six minute episode showing wha the Toy's get upto when their owner is away for extended periods of time.
The Man with One Red Shoe (1985)
The Man with One Red Shoe
I cannot understand why this film has recieved such poor ratings. I thought it was a very enjoyable and in many places funny film, with an excellently executed plot. I enjoyed the film and that as I always say, is what matters most, I can't see anything wrong that would warrant the absolutely awful 5.whatever that this film has gotten. IMDb raters you should be ashamed!
Bachelor Party (1984)
Definitely very funny in places, the beginning three quarters of the film are good sure but none of it was really my cup of tea. The ending however was far better and what moves the film to an eight in my opinion rather than a seven. The classic "it's a raid" and everything about that whole section of the film was just tip top.
What a film, definitely one-of-a-kind, not seen anything else like it. Absolutely fantastic, 8.5/10, I'm feeling generous with a nine because of how great Tom Hanks is as always.
There's something great about the premise of this and though I can't put my finger exactly on what it is, everything works perfectly.
He Knows You're Alone (1980)
He Knows You're Alone
I can't say this was the best film I've ever seen, but it certainly wasn't bad, better than the abismal IMDb score it has recieved. Tom Hanks' first film appearance was good, only wish we could have seen more of him. Well now I shall go watch Splash, that's got the Hankster in it!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Many people like to nit pick this film but the way I see it the only bit that annoys me, though understandable as it is, is the missing Quidditch World Cup, sure they go there but we see no Quidditch, what a let down!
Everything else was fine, although this does mark the beginning of Harry's grouchyness which is something book Harry suffers from far more severely than film Harry.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
The best of all in my opinion, the only "bad" bit which isn't that bad is the bizarre cringe ending but the film's allowed to have a bit of fun I think. This episode marks the first of the new era of Harry Potter films, no longer children they are teenagers now and acting and plot have improved.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Classic and equally great second part to the Saga, definitely a must watch for fans of the book, even if some details had to be changed for the sake of the big screen. Definitely a perfect sequel as all films in the saga are. And they only get better with age.
