If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only watch one of the following actor's movie catalog (Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, or Tom Hanks), which one would you choose? 

Harrison Ford movie list and rankings 

Tom Cruise movie list and rankings

Tom Hanks movie list

When I initially heard this question, I thought Harrison Ford was my answer.
With all of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies, you got yourself some good times there.
However, after looking at the lists, I would be OK with picking Tom Hanks.
The range of the characters he has played throughout his career is pretty impressive and I think watching him transform through the years would be more entertaining.
Plus, it looks like he has more comedies in his resume and you might need that while you are stranded. 
And, he is quite relatable to you on your deserted island from his film "Castaway."
What do you think?
Am I crazy or do you agree with me? 

Thanks for stopping by. 
I will talk to you tomorrow.

I will persevere.
I will keep moving forward.
I will be the stream. 


  1. I would go with Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford has some classics though, but I am sick of Star Wars.

  2. I'd pick Tom Hanks too. Although I enjoy both Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise as well.

    1. They all have made some amazing films.

  3. I would need the variety of genres with Tom Hanks. I can not stand Tom Cruise!

  4. Tom Hanks, hands down! I too like the variety. I've never cared for Tom Cruise. If that means no Tropic Thunder, oh well. I do like Harrison Ford, too, but I enjoy more of Hanks' movies.

  5. There are some wonderful movies from all three, but yes, definitely Tom Hanks. Such variety!

  6. Tom Hanks, 100%. Not even close for the other two. Tom Cruise in particular is someone I would go out of my way to avoid in real life so I can't stand to watch him in movies either. I was so happy to hear he is no longer playing the part of Jack Reacher. (Ironically, I had a brain glitch and couldn't remember that name so I had to Google Tom Cruise roles - how embarrassing) Tom Hanks has had so many different roles; I think that shows the depth of his talent. The thing I most want, though, is to never EVER be stuck on a deserted island :)

  7. Not Tom Cruise, not ever.

    I'd go with Mr. Hanks.

  8. Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, not really a Tom Cruise fan.

  9. I do have to say, though, that I'm intrigued by the idea of a desert island and the ability to watch movies. Would this desert island have recliners? How about pop corn and cold drinks? The more I think about it, the more certain I am that this is MY kind of desert island.

  10. I think I would go with Tom Hanks. His movies are always so good and he is such a diverse actor! Not a Tom Cruise fan but I do like Harrison Ford, too! My favorite movie of his is Regarding Henry. I have the DVD and have watched it several times!

  11. I pick Tom Hanks. The breadth of his career is astounding. Even humbling.

  12. Definitely Tom Hanks and a very long extension cord for the TV/dvd player which was mysteriously left behind by the last person marooned there.

  13. Tom Hanks, hands down. I don't even need to see a list. Tom Cruise I can't watch anything. Harrison is eh. But I do love him in Shrinking!!!

  14. Tom Cruise is off my list right from the get go. I don't like him and don't watch his movies. I like Harrison Ford, his movies are great adventures.

  15. Sorry, Tom Cruise gets flushed down the toilet. Harrison, most likely because he has a number action films that are interesting. Hanks would be a close 2nd since he's done Stephen King.
