    What I don't understand is why this film beat Pulp Fiction in the 1994 Academy Awards? Sure, awards aren't everything, but even so.. It doesn't have any strong messages other than that America has become so warped as to allow a mentally-challenged (come on, he is) man to become president. In fairness, that become a reality 6 years later...

    Another one that will be considered a classic, this is Tom Hanks at his best fun loving and carefree. This movie shows that no matter what is wrong with you, if you set your mind to it you can accomplish anything.

    Such an amazing film, it has the right amount of comedy and drama. One of my favorites.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Love this movie, hate it, or fall somewhere in the ambivalent middle, there’s no denying that Forrest Gump is one of the most iconic movies of the last quarter century. When it came out, it was unavoidable. I was 13 or 14 years old, looking back now, I can’t see a single thing about it that would have made a 13 or 14 year old interested in Forrest Gump. But I saw it in the cinema, like every single other…

    Quite simply the most magical film I have ever seen. Easily a Top 5 film of all time, one of the very best I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing in a theater. On paper, the film sounds impossible to pull off, but everything works perfectly. The flashback structure, the accents, the words, the effects, the set design, the blending of reality and fiction…all of these elements collaborate together so well, one has to assume it's a miracle that any of it worked.

    And that's precisely why Robert Zemeckis is the only filmmaker in Hollywood I would dare call a miracle worker.

    I'm sorry, but could you get any more sentimental than that? From the opening of the movie I could already tell that what the movie was going for is just something that'll just head over for sap when you open and close with a feather. That's not the only problem that I do have with Forrest Gump, because I find this movie to be so much more problematic from there onward.

    The whole movie relies on you believing in an…

    I wish I had watched this movie sooner, honestly.

    I was feeling pretty sad and I decided to watch this movie because I heard it was a feel-good movie. IT'S SO TOTALLY NOT??? I MEAN, SORT OF?? BUT NOT REALLY??? It made me feel all the emotions. I found it really quirky, funny, and cool to see all the important historical events seamlessly woven into the story and the fact that Forrest had a role in them made the movie…

    Crossing this one off the Nobody believes I haven't seen... list. And that's all I have to say about that.

    Zemeckis gets a pass for Back To The Future and Roger Rabbit. But this is just bad. Hanks is good, Sinise is good, Wright is serviceable. Everything else is bleh. And don't get me started on the morals of the film, especially regarding gender politics. I could probably write a whole other paragraph about the gross mistreatment of women in the film alone. The problem isn't it being there, the problem is how much it is pushed aside or masked…
