I wanted to hate FORREST GUMP, because all my hipster friends made fun of it, but I loved it. Simply loved it. Hanks was also excellent in Philadelphia.
So I say: TIE!
This is really hard because both are good and am definitely part of the Tom Hanks fan club, but I voted for Forrest Gump because for some reason, I still got lost in it and often forget that it is Tom Hanks, which is a cliche thing to say but I rarely ever feel that way about a performance.
Philadelphia! I really didn’t like Forrest Gump, I found it pretenious, boring and frankly utterly uninteresting.
They’re both great, amazing performances. But I’d go with Forrest Gump, simply because it’s the greater movie (stil love, LOVE philadelphia though). And yes, I am part of the Tom Hanks fan club. T.hanks! Hoping for an oscar nomination for Saving Mr Banks where he plays Walt Disney!
