    It's a great film. It's an odd choice for want of a better phrase because it's so mainstream. By all accounts it should be a bit shite. but it's good.

    It's not entirely true about not having enough credit for CGI, since it won Oscar for visual effects. By the way great review, as always

    In my opinion Forrest Gump is definitely better than both Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction, both amazing movies, it goes without saying, but Forrest Gump just simply had more to offer overall than either of those movies.

    I have seen a lot of people criticize Jenny's character in the film. Although, her character made some TERRIBLE life choices, I see her character as the exact opposite as forrest.
    Both Jenny and Forrest followed what others told them to do or what they felt like. Jenny got wrapped up in drugs, abusive relationships, and other terrible things while forrest went on to form bubba gump shrimp, meet two presidents, compete in the Olympics, etc all before the age of most likely 30.
    I think this is the underlying reason why I love this film so much, it highlights that even if you are not the brightest or most well off, you are the master of your own destiny and where you are in life. The fact that Jenny could constantly use Forrest as a crutch/punching bag then dump her child on him to take care of, and forrest doesn't bat an eye really shows the strong nature of his character.

    Jenny is a gold digging whore. She shat on Forrest for the entire movie, threw him a piece of ass then claimed her son (by who-knows-who) is his and has him take care of her while she dies and burdens him with, again, somebody's child.
    Anyone who likes Jenny's character (regardless of her childhood) is likewise a sociopath. I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that she didn't get annoying. She was infuriating.

    I always get pissed off with the backlash this film receives because of it winning best picure. It is probably the most heartfelt and beautiful film I've ever seen (not the best). It is undoubtedly one of the best films of all time.
    Pulp Fiction, Shawahank and Forrest Gump are all some of the best films of all time - they all deserved Best Picture... so Forrest Gump shouldn't get backlash.
    Shawshank was the best film.
    Pulp Fiction was the most ennoyable film.
    Forrest Gump holds a special place in my heart.
    I actually think Pulp Fiction is better, but that doesn't make Forrest Gump any less deserving of best picture.

    I'm glad people like forest gump, but I really dont see what is so great about this movie. Yes its emotional, yes its heartwarming. But what does it do other than that? After watching forest gump I thought to myself "Aside from tom hank's preformance, and some good cgi, there really isnt anything that this movie does exceptionally well". And I stand by it. There are lots of sentimental movies that are smarter, more human, have better stories. It also annoys me when pople say"oh, it's about how you can do anything if you set your mind to it. Its a strong and beatiful message!" First off we have all heard that so, so many times. And second, It just seems to me that he was always at the right place at the right time, he didn't really conquer any set goal for most of the movie. The ending was sweet, I will give the movie that. I like the movie, but whats great about it other than it touched you? 7.3/10

    The thing I love about Forrest Gump is that through everything he is just so optimistic and just so himself. You can see he feels these events so deeply but he handles it all with a certain deposition. He's true to himself when he learns all these lessons. I want to be just like him.

    Love this movie one problem why the f did he love jenny , honest he was so loyal to her , helps her so much and she taught him to run then runs away from him , literally with being ill and then dies and makes him a single dad , he is ok with that, well he has no choice but she could have after having drugs see him , ok she does then runs off and doesnt contact him till she sees him running but in fairness he wouldnt have done everything in the movie so maybe jenny did him a favour

  • BigHawk LOB
    BigHawk LOB Year ago

    It's not a balance with Jenny!!! I know the stuff with her dad is awful but all she does is show up and destroy Forrest emotionally time after time. When she finally says she loves him and wants to be w him... SHE'S EFFING DYING!!! I love this movie tho. In the battle of the big 3 that yr, I like it exactly as much as much as Shawshank and less than Pulp.

    One time I got really fucking pissed and asked the fucker if he had seen the movie.
    How did he respond? He said “what movie?”! Can you believe that? That’s just sad!

    As much as i admire the achievements of the movie, it also make me thing that in many ways this movie is , in the best case a very unintentional recolection of hard core conservative values, and in the worst case a cheat that play with our feelings in a very manipulative and hollow way. I am myself conflicted with it.
