    "Forrest Gump" is the perfect example of how wonderful storytelling can create such an amazing motion picture. Director Robert Zemeckis takes us on an incredible journey through the eyes of the title character, portrayed by Tom Hanks in one of his greatest performances. The beautifully-written script takes the audience through each time in history flawlessly, as the film explores the entire life and accomplishments of Forrest Gump himself, all through incredible use of visual effects and various CGI techniques, while…

    I'm going to start a challenge, I'm going to find a movie better than Blade Runner. This was a super close contender. After watching this again, I noticed the true beauty of this film. I must say, it is a flawless masterpiece. I am going to move this up to my top 4. You may see my favorite movies change!

    I have no idea whether it is more popular to rag on the film or to love it. It's so blasted famous that without having seen it, you know full damn well what to expect. After finally seeing it in IMAX for my first viewing of the film, while it's far from perfect, it's certainly enjoyable. It's as far from subtle as you can get and it's overly sentimental, but the performances are fantastic, as is the pacing. The characters are also well drawn out. I was never bored and I was never blown-away.

    It had been well over a decade, maybe 15 years since I had seen this. Despite (maybe because of) its mega-popularity at the time, it's a very trendy film to dislike now. I had more or less succumbed to the antipathy aimed toward it, only remembering the clumsier aspects (Hanks's occasionally overwrought performance, the poor CGI on the famous people's lips that make them look like talking babies from commercials) and forgetting all the best stuff (like Gary Sinise's and…

    Is it bad to admit that I'm a sucker for this movie?

    It's more than a little silly and saccharine and I don't care.

    To celebrate it's 20th anniversary, Forrest Gump was re-released in IMAX. It was first shown on Friday night, a showing I personally attended. And I'm glad I did because Forrest Gump is great film. The film is about a "dumb" man who lives an incredible life, witnessing ever major event of the 20th century. For a movie about a stupid person who finds himself in every event in 20th century America, it has a remarkable pace. Forrest Gump is like…

    *This is a review of the IMAX experience.

    I can see why a lot of people strongly dislike this movie, and there issues with it, but the only issue I have with "Forrest Gump" is the narration. Robert Zemeckis felt the need to have the story told to them, not watched. It just felt like a commentary, really. It treats it's audience like idiots, that they need everything explained to them of what they are watching.

    Despite the narration, "Forrest…

    If you can separate the film from all the cultural baggage that it’s acquired over the past two decades, and approach it with something like fresh eyes, it’s sort of surprising what an odd and risky movie it is. Director Robert Zemeckis pitches the tale as neither comedy nor drama, but as a loose, vignette-heavy mixture of pop history and folk storytelling.

    I've never gotten the hate from this by film snobs, as its one of the very few times I think it actually was the Best Picture.

    I actually love the novelty that some idiot could have fumbled along through so many amazing events in history. Most of the CGI edits work, although that John Lennon one still bugs me.

    The cast is amazing. Only five real leads and the all get time to shine. Hanks, just amazing, but Wright and…
