Forrest Gump (1994)

Forrest Gump, a simple man with a low IQ and a heart of gold makes his way through life with only his wit, wisdom, and kind nature. Along the way, he finds himself entangled within some of history’s most pivotal events. Forrest Gump features an all star cast and cutting edge special effects that still hold to this day. An incredibly touching and thoughtful movie that stands the test of time and is worth a rewatch.

The good:

  • Wonderful performances within a sweeping, captivating story.

  • A fantastic soundtrack and a beautiful score by Alan Silvestri.

  • A classic that stands the test of time.

The bad:

  • None.
