    My Thoughts On Remembering This Film

    This movie brings up lots of emotions and it has painfully sad things in it and yet it is also funny and inspiring. I haven't seen this film in a few years so the points I make are from memory alone. It is sad that the only reason Forrest goes to the school is because his mum has...

    Classic ... Priceless Too

    The character Jenny reminds me of myself in my

    youth. I used to jump from place to place, relationship to relationship, trying to find myself. In the end and looking back I think there was probably a short period of time when I found myself but it was short lived.

    Slow Down

    I'm the type of person who thinks about things thoroughly and constantly. It's honestly to the point at times that I will think about something so long that I initially wanted to do that I will talk myself out of doing things and taking chances which I regret later not taking...

    I could watch this movie over

    and over! I have also read the book and it's great! He may not be the smartest but he is sure is brave and really caring, especially about jenny, his mom, dan, and bubba. "My mama said life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what your gonna get."

    A Wonderful Film!!

    I think its the innocence i love the most, and the fact that no matter how many times i watch it I always cry at the end. Oh and not forgetting the fact that i fancy captain dan!! and want to give Bubba a cuddle..

    A Legend

    Forrest Gump lives a simple life and yet innocently participates in the history of the United States as it happens during his lifetime. He meets a young Elvis Presley; he gets on the University of Alabama football team, coached by Bear Bryant, and becomes an All-American; he...

    One Of The Greatest

    It's one of my all time favorites. I'll watch it any time I see it on no matter how late it is and I have to get up early. It's like some kind of impulse, when I see it on I can't not flip on the channel. I was once in a relationship with a girl and I knew it wasn't going to...

    I Do. Tom Hanks Is Wonderful

    I haven't seen anything with Tom Hanks in it, that I haven't liked a lot. He is very good at his craft, and he always chooses his parts with care. I think he wouldn't do a movie unless he felt something for the character he was going to play. I think he needs to believe in the...

    I'm a guy, but I love when people give me compliments. I rarely get them so when a girl says I'm cute or good looking, I'm automatically in a better mood.
