Product Description


The Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Best Director Robert Zemeckis, and Best Actor Tom Hanks, this unlikely story of a slow-witted but good-hearted man somehow at the center of the pivotal events of the 20th century is a funny and heartwarming epic. Hanks plays the title character, a shy Southern boy in love with his childhood best friend (Robin Wright) who finds that his ability to run fast takes him places. As an All-Star football player he meets John F. Kennedy; as a soldier in Vietnam he's a war hero; and as a world champion Ping-Pong player he's hailed by Richard Nixon. Becoming a successful shrimp-boat captain, he still yearns for the love of his life, who takes a quite different and much sadder path in life. The visual effects incorporating Hanks into existing newsreel footage is both funny and impressive, but the heart of the film lies in its sweet love story and in the triumphant performance of Hanks as an unassuming soul who savors the most from his life and times. --Robert Lane

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of My All-Time Favourites! Aug. 3 2006
I remember it vividly. I sat in our livingroom and started to watch this movie, new to me at the time. The feather appeared and the music began to flow. Immediatly I knew it. I was going to love this movie.

And I was right. During the movie I cried probably seven times, yes really cried, tears ran down from my eyes everytime something remarkable happened. I'm not going to spoil your experience by telling which was the scene I cried most to. I'll only say that they were the tears of joy.

And next Christmas I got this DVD as a present from my parents, relived the magic. This is the movie for me you can't go wrong with, always a good watch.

Extras are very good, done well and are both fun and informative, especially if you are interested in the movie-making -process.

The Oscar-shower was well deserved, Tom Hanks is at his best here, for example. He makes Forrest very human and loveable. The one who truly shines to me here is Gary Sinise's Lt. Dan. Great and moving work!

Recommended for all you movie-lovers out there! <3 <3 <3

5.0 out of 5 stars The American Dream meets the American Nightmare Aug. 9 2007
Two people, Forrest Gump and Jenny Curran, form an unbreakable bond as children. Forrest, although lacking in the brains department, manages to witness and play his part in some of the greatest events in American history. He meets JFK, wins the Medal of Honor in Vietnam, and manages to accidentally start the Watergate investigation. Forrest lives the American dream whereas Jenny lives the American nightmare; she has an abusive father and grows up to have a string of abusive boyfriends, works as a stripper, takes narcotics and ultimately contracts AIDS. Despite the pair going in completely different directions in life, they are still drawn to each other and Forrest and Jenny's story is one that will make you smile, laugh and shed a tear.

Every once and while, you see lists of the worst films to win Best Picture Oscars, and usually Forrest Gump makes that list. I think the reason for this is that we live in quite a cynical world and the majority of people do not really warm to lead characters that are innocent and pure of heart. This should not be the case. We should adore characters that are completely honest and very insightful despite their low IQs, and Forrest Gump is one of those characters that we should love. People who watch this film should check their cynicism at the door and just enjoy a film that is about the everyman battling the world using only truth and a deep-seated sense of what he believes is right. After all, this film has a noble tradition, it follows in the footsteps of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and It's A Wonderful Life. If Frank Capra were alive today, he would make films like Forrest Gump (if he could come to grips with all the CGI) and that's all I have to say about that...

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic history of the 60's April 13 2014
By Stan
We saw this movie the first time at a theater. When we were leaving some teenagers behind us were commenting on it and one said "I don't get what it was about". Exactly! You had to live through the 60's to really understand and appreciate this great movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forrest Gump April 2 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The movie was very good. I have it on DVD. Since there was alot of good old music in it, I thought blueray would be better; There is not much different between the two though. But the price was good and I'm glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Lots of extras - Get the 2 Blu-ray Set March 15 2014
By From the Musician's Pen TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The film's a classic and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you how good it is. My 5-star rating is for the Blu-ray, which looks and sounds great, much better than the DVD. The second disc has all the bonus features. You can get it for $5, so it's a great bargain. I highly recommend getting the Blu-ray. Enjoy!
