Film lover, plain and simple.
While a great movie, I tend to think of it as a bit overrated. I hate repeating others, but I am in the same boat where I feel that Pulp Fiction is the superior movie, and should have won best picture. With that thought aside, Forrest Gump is still a movie of quality that I enjoyed. It has an inspirational message that anything is possible, and it had memorable moments and characters (looking at you Lt. Dan). Despite my hatred of Jenny, this is definitely a movie everyone should watch at least once.
This is an all time American classic. In a year where so many iconic films came to be, there are few I never heard of before. In fact, up until the Criterion Collection announced it on bluray, I never heard of this one at all. This is something that needs to be changed. More people need to know about this one! Not only is it a great Western, but it has great humor. The script and acting are also top…
