Top 10 Tom Hanks Movies

Top 10 Tom Hanks Movies  

Born on the 9th July 1956 in Concord, California Thomas Jeffrey “Tom” Hanks first started acting whilst attending Skyline High School in Oakland, California where he appeared in various school plays. It wasn’t until in 1980 that Tom Hanks made his movie debut in the slasher flick “He Knows You’re Alone” and although he appeared in    สุดยอดหนังคาวบอย

 various TV shows, including one episode of “Happy Days”, it would be four years before his next movie. And it would be Ron Howard from “Happy Days” who would offer Hanks his first major movie role in “Splash” although originally Hanks auditioned for the part of the brother rather than the central character of Allen Bauer.

In the same year Hanks also starred in “Bachelor Party” one of many less than memorable movies which he made during the 80s. And it would be fair to say that for every “Big” (1988) there was a “Volunteers” (1985). Although whilst such movies as “The ‘Burbs” (1989) and “Joe Versus the Volcano” (1990) were box-office flops they have got a little better with age.

It wouldn’t be until 1992 that Tom Hanks’ up and down movie career finally came into it’s own firstly with his performance as a washed up baseball star in “A League of Their Own” which was then followed in 1993 with “Sleepless in Seattle” the second of three movies which he made with Meg Ryan. But it was his portrayal of Andrew Beckett in “Philadelphia” (1993) which would show everyone what a great actor Tom Hanks was and he won his first of two Oscars for the breath taking performance. Interesting during his acceptance speech he acknowledged his high school drama teacher who was gay. It was this speech which was the inspiration for the 1997 movie “In & Out” featuring Kevin Kline.

Having just won his first Oscar Hanks would follow it up with his second for his performance in the hugely entertaining and memorable “Forrest Gump” a favourite of many people’s top movie lists. Hanks was now on a roll and in 1995 he appeared in two hugely successful movies, firstly reuniting with Ron Howard for “Apollo 13” and then voicing Woody in the first of 3 “Toy Story” movies

With his next movie “That Thing You Do!” (1996) Hanks would not only act but he also directed and his behind the camera work continued as he produced, co-wrote, and co-directed the HBO drama “From the Earth to the Moon”. But he was back in front of the camera once more in 1998 firstly with what is widely praised as one of the best war movies ever made “Saving Private Ryan” and then teaming up with Meg Ryan once more for “You’ve Got Mail” a remake of “The Shop Around the Corner” which starred James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan.

And so it continues with Tom Hanks having starred in some of the biggest and best movies over the last decade with the likes of Stephen King’s “The Green Mile” (1999), his outstanding solo performance in “Cast Away” (2000), gritty anti hero in “Road to Perdition” (2002), stranded foreigner Viktor Navorski in “The Terminal” (2004), Robert Langdon in “The Da Vinci Code” (2006) and more recently reprising his role as Woody in “Toy Story 3” (2010).

With more movies in production, and his continual work behind the camera as writer, producer and director it looks like Tom Hanks will be continuing to entertain us for many more years to come. And I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a third Oscar before long.

#10 Big (1988)
Tired of being small, Josh Baskin (Tom Hanks) wishes he could be big and when he spots a fortune telling machine at the travelling fair he wishes exactly for that. Well the next morning when Josh wakes his dream has come true, except instead of being a little bit bigger he now looks thirty something. With the help of his best friend Billy, they head off to the city in search of the machine in the hope he can reverse his wish but whilst there finds himself landing a job for a toy company. Forced to act as an adult yet with a childs mind, life is fun for Josh as he experiences freedom, except he still longs to be a child again.

#9 The Terminal (2004)
Having arrived in New York Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks) has got a problem, whilst in the air his country Krakozhia has been over thrown and America now doesn’t recognize it as a country. That means Viktor is in a state of limbo as he can’t enter America and he can’t be exported back so is forced to remain in the airport till things are sorted out. Forced to live in the airport Viktor makes the most of things and makes friends whilst there but becomes a pain in the butt of Frank Dixon whose job it is to keep things running smoothly.

#8 Apollo 13 (1995)
Based on the true story of the 13th Apollo mission which on its way to the moon ran in to some serious trouble. Astronauts Lovell (Tom Hanks), Haise and Swigert who having been bumped up from the 14th mission find themselves almost helpless as their stricken spacecraft orbits the moon, forced to conserve power whilst the team back at Houston try and work out not only how to get them back but more importantly get them back alive.

#7 Toy Story (1995)
For years Woody (Tom Hanks), the toy cowboy, has been young Andy’s favourite, and being the favourite means that all the other toys, which come to life when no one is about, treat him as their leader. But Woody’s world comes crashing down when Andy receives a new toy, the all singing and dancing Buzz Lightyear. Discarded in favour of Buzz, Woody becomes jealous and having let his jealousy get the better of him finds himself along with Buzz in the hands of Sid, Andy’s neighb

Customary loan specialists are typically reluctant to face the challenge, so will demand checking the credit history of the candidate. Be that as it may, getting a military loan with no credit check implies the credit history is ignored.

Fundamentally, making sure about loan approval without credit checks is conceivable when the bank centers simply around the capacity of the borrower to make reimbursements.

All banks need to know prior to allowing this class of military loan is that the candidate will have enough in their next paycheck to clear the obligation totally. Also, with bank subtleties gave, the reimbursement is taken out promptly, guaranteeing the borrower cannot neglect to pay regardless of whether they needed to.

Additionally, in light of the fact that these sorts of military loans are mainly equivalent to payday loans, there can be extensive strain to meet the reimbursement plan. Normally, the loan is reimbursed in full with the following paycheck, which could be when 14 days. A $5,000 loan might be reimbursed more than 90 days.

  1. Concurring A Repayment Term

There is no uncertainty that subsequent to protecting a military loan with no credit check, the quick expense of reimbursement is extremely high.

Let the Revolution Commence – Riddell Revolution Football Helmets

Let the Revolution Commence – Riddell Revolution Football Helmets


Football equals concussion. This is an equation that keeps players, coaches and parents to be always on guard. Whether it is amateurs or professionals, injuries are incurred by players every season. And this is not just the bruising or bleeding that is seen on the surface—serious internal injuries are present as well. An impact may and    ข่าวฟุตบอลล่าสุด

  will prove fatal if delivered with a great deal of force. Having hormonal-charged high school students and egotistical professional football players in the field, this is inevitable. Building upon this fact, the leading manufacturer of football headgear introduced the new Riddell Revolution football helmets.

The Study

The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center conducted a 3-year study among high school players, which demonstrates a considerable drop on the percentage that concussion will likely to occur. To be exact, the authors claim that players sporting the new Riddell Revolution football helmets were 31% less prone to experience concussion as weighed against those wearing the traditional headgear. The study also incorporates the symptoms, severity and the recovery period of a concussion. This part reflects that no matter the helmet type, such variable made no difference with regard the healing period of the players. Though such study shows great development and evaluation on the Riddell Revolution football helmets, Riddell Inc. still posts the warning that no helmet or headgear can stop each and every concussion that comes in the way of a football player. Michael Collins, one of the authors, extended such caution. Collins further stressed that players must be fully recovered before entering the field after a concussion. There is nothing more vulnerable than a football player impaired by a recent injury, to suffer the same fate for the second time.

The Goal

The whole purpose of it all is to minimize the possibility of a concussion. It took the company more than 4 years before the Riddell Revolution football helmets came to being. This is not a simple project, knowing the intricacies of quality headgear, Riddell spent much time on the field as well as the laboratory to actually see if the new design would be at par with the standard of excellence maintained by the company and the expectations of the public towards such equipment.


Useful Information About Boxing

Useful Information About Boxing

The sport of boxing started when two individuals engaged in a fight using their fists. The Greeks are believed to be the first to formalize the sport during the Olympic Games in 688 BC. During the Roman era, the sport of boxing became increasingly popular and boxers wore leather bands around their fists for protection. Some of   ข่าวมวย

   these bands contained metal strips that caused significant injuries to either opponent.

After the fall of Rome, the sport was not as popular, but was revived in the 18th century when James Figg held the heavyweight title for over 20 years. In the Industrial Revolution the game was known as the workingman?s sport with matches resembling street fights, rather than an organized event.

In 1773, English born Jack Broughton became the second heavyweight champion. The bouts became more organized at that point and rules and regulations came into play. Hitting below the belt was banned, and matches were decided using the point system. The bouts were held in a ring with spectators sitting around the squared off area – much like today’s fights.

Today, boxing competition is divided into a set number of rounds, three minutes long with a one-minute rest period between each round. Championship bouts usually last for 12 rounds, but because there is no real governing body, rules vary from state to state in the US. Judges determine the winner using scorecards as the fight goes on. There is a referee who determines if illegal moves are made or if a fighter is too injured to continue the match. In some cases, the referee calls a “knockout” when an opponent has been knocked down or knocked out.

Play Online Slot Machines — Picking A Machine & Winning

Play Online Slot Machines — Picking A Machine & Winning  

Beginners who play online slot machines do not learn the differences between the various types of machine and how to play them correctly so here is a quick novice guide, to online slot machines and how to approach them.

Here you can start learning how to   สล็อตออนไลน์    play online slots correctly and learn how to increase the odds and win
Understanding the pay out schedule.

First of all, not all machines are the same. In fact, there is a huge difference. So the first lesson is how to “Read” a slot machine.

Notice first the coin denomination. The actual “slot” for the money may be the same size for different coins. Notice what each machine’s coin denomination is.

Next is to understand the different types of machines

The Multiplier:

This online slot machine will pay out for a certain symbols and the number of coins bet then multiplies it.

Say the machine pays 10 coins for three cherries when you play one coin, it would pay 15 for the second coin and 20 for three coins played.

However, and unlike other online slot machines, it will not penalize you for not playing maximum coins. If it’s your strategy to play one coin at a time, this is your machine and it lengthens out your fun time playing.

The Bonus Multiplier:

There is no real difference to the Multiplier except that it will pay a bonus if you play maximum coins and then hit the jackpot.

Three cherries may pay 1,000 for one coin, 2,000 for two coins etc

The Multiple Payline:

These are the online slot machines you play that have more than one line of play.

This means that each coin played will activate a particular line.

Careful, If you hit a winning combination on a non-activated line, you will receive nothing for your trouble!
The modern casino machines can have as many as 9 pay lines.

The Buy-a-Pay:
These are complicated online slot machines to play, but we will make it simple.

Each coin you play will activate a different pay out.

You will need to play maximum coins to receive the largest jackpot.

So remember that on these machines if you hit a jackpot with one coin in nothing is won! NEVER play this machine unless you will play maximum coins or you will find the jackpot for someone else.

Progressive Slots

Progressive slots are called this as they take a certain percentage of all money played and add it to a pool for the top jackpot. “Megabucks” is a perfect example. Megabucks also has machines from several casinos linked together to offer astronomical jackpots.
