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
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...
Directed by Robert Zemeckis (who also directed the movie "Contact"), it is set in Alabama where it focuses on a very special boy, a boy who has many changes to come. His name is Forrest Gump (played by Michael Conner Humphreys). At first, Forrest had to wear leg braces to straighten out his back. But what the eyes of the other kids saw in Forrest was just a "retard" except for one, who could see right through Forrest Gump and see just another kid trying to live. This one went by the name of Jenny Curran (Hanna R. Hall), who would soon become Forrest "very best friend". The movie starts from scratch, where Forrest is a kid right until the time he is a grown man. Forrest soon goes to College, graduates, enters the Army, where he meets his two other best friends (Ben Bufford 'Bubba' Blue, played by Mykelti Williamson, and Lt. Dan Taylor, played by Gary Sinise), owns a shrimp company, becomes a table-tennis professional, becomes a war hero and soon marries Jenny. All this happened because Forrest believed he could make it happen.
To me, Forrest Gump is the story about survival and belief. To believe in yourself, believing you can achieve anything you want to achieve if you try. To achieve goals, you must set them out but Forrest never set his goals out, he just made them happen which is another reason why this is one of the best films ever made.Read more ›
Most of the time, the film concentrates on Forrest and Jenny. It shows how they meet, what they do together, how they split up, how they get back together etc.
The film is very touching, as it nears the end, but it also is very funny, with stupid things always occuring. It also contains some action when he is in Vietnam. The film has everything almost. The cast is excellent. I liked Gary Sinise as Forrest's caption in Nam. The beautiful Robin Wright played Jenny, and Sally Field played Forrest's helpful mother.
When you haven't a clue what type of movie to see, see this.
