"a Mafia movie starring Tom Hanks"
There was one, wasn't there, Greengal? I think it was called "The Road To Perdition". I find Tom Hanks hard to warm up to also, although I'd say he's a pretty good actor...there's just something about the guy that doesn't appeal to me, that's all. I guess you'd say we don't have "chemistry", him and me. ;-) I felt the same about Richard Widmark, Charles Bronson, Jeff Goldblum, Anthony Quinn, and John Wayne. No mutual chemistry at all between me and any of those guys, so any movie they were in, it was sort of ruined for me just because they were in it.
I'm not saying that's necessarily fair to the various actors I mentioned, I'm just saying that's the way it is, that's all.
I felt that way about Leonardo DiCaprio too, at first, but I changed my mind completely after I saw him star in 3 or 4 absolutely great movies! I now look forward to seeing his next role.
