    Hanks is good. Leo is better imo.

    I loved Tom Hanks movies as a kid -- his pre Philadelphia years when he did comedy stuff. The Burbs was my favorite of those.

    He has been great since. This was a hard choice for me. Hanks is probably a cooler person though I think DiCaprio is a better actor.

    Let's cross the streams a bit here with Catch Me If You Can -- which stars both actors.



    @titanthakur to what I was talking about in the Depp thread. This is an example of an amazing true story with an amazing book. And while the book is still better the movie is still very good. And it stayed fairly true to the book.

    Unlike the trash that were the Donnie Brasco and Blow movies.

    I liked Blow until I read the book.

    It is a failure because it could have been a million times better

    except for their beach movies.

    Cast Away was amazing and even had Tennessee Oilers references while The Beach was pretty real salty, but not in a good way

    I went Hanks. I predict by the end of his career I'll vote DiCaprio, but Hanks has the edge for me

    The two best of our time perhaps.

    Leo is just money. In everything. And has range.

    But hanks... Forrest Gump. Green mile. Philadelphia. Castaway. How can you vote against that?

    I just can't. It's like Sophie's choice.
