    The 4th time I see it and still is great.Actually I don't care what they say,all this hate for this film is because it won Pulp Fiction on Academy Awards.But the question is;There is another reason to hate this film.I guess not.The perfomances are great,Tom Hanks give it all on it.Robert Zemeckis directs this movie skillfully and he give us so much great comedy moments,but the dramatic moments are so well-made.Also a lot of people dislike the ending cause of…

    Seriously?
    Okay. People say this film is a right wing propaganda wank fest. I'm prepared to beleive it's not, by saying that actually Forest doesn't work that hard and that its all about luck and how it all falls into place completely accidentally. That would explain why he is not racist, and why the film doesn't even mention the fact that his house is basically an ex plantation. He is just leaving the past behind and waking blindly forward.
    Perhaps…

    General Response
    I am doing my general response on a movie I have seen very recently and many times before that. The movie I am writing about is “forrest gump”. This is an amazing movie that teaches you so many lessons that you can use in your everyday lives. The story is about a boy named Forrest who goes through many hardships as a boy like how his legs needed to be in braces in order for them to work.…

    If there's such thing as a perfect narrative, you can sure as hell find it in Forrest Gump. It portrays one of the most complete life long stories I have ever seen. Besides the main's character development and story line, you also have secondary characters with very well build up stories and emotions. Spot on performances, specially from Mr. Hank

    What with Forrest Gump being considered a classic, my expectations for this movie were high. Personally, I don't think it's as good as they say it is, but it's still a good movie nonetheless.

    Twenty years after its initial release, Forrest Gump still holds up as a decent film IF one doesn't want to tear it apart for having moments of exaggerated sentimentality (it is life), an abundance of stock characters (they are intentional representations) and its recounting of the title character's far-fetched string of life experiences that put him front-and-center to so many of the 20th Century's greatest and most notable events (Forrest Gump = Americana).

    I was young and enamored the first…

    “Forrest Gump,” the 1994 Best Picture Oscar winner, came out 20 years ago this week. In honor of the big anniversary, the film is receiving something equally huge: a celebratory, nationwide victory lap of screenings at IMAX theaters. Finally, you too can see Tom Hanks as he was meant to be seen: 40 feet high!

    I’ll be anywhere else.

    Look, it’s not that I hate “Forrest Gump.” Oh, wait, yes it is. I hate “Forrest Gump.” There, I said it,…

    Forrest Gump works as if it is deliberately attempting to invite sneering towards itself. It's an overly-schmaltzy portrayal of a simpleton whose serendipitous walk of life takes him through some of the 20th century's biggest events making him into one fascinating individual without particularly caring. Hanks's performance is fairly irritating and the film's overbearing sentimentality sees that the probability of Jenny passing on AIDs to her son is massively overlooked. But, as the film progresses, we develop a liking to…

    "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…
