My top ten must watch more than once movies
7. Forest Gump (1994)
To this day i have no idea what Forest Gumps mom was bring across to Forest when she said ‘Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get’. Maybe she was trying to dumb down something profound for her less than average IQ son right before she died or she herself didn’t know what she was talking about.
Forest Gump is a tale about a southern man’s (Tom Hanks) perspective of the world around him while trying to make the best of the fact that he is well…dumb. That fact doesn’t stop Forest from becoming a football star, decorated war hero, All American Badminton player, cross country athlete and co-owner of a multi-million dollar shrimping business. But he doesn’t stop there, he goes on to find love in his childhood friend Jenny who was a mess through the entire show but end up cleaning up her act in the end (sadly, she dies of AIDS).
A heart warming story, Forest Gump reminds you that nothing is impossible in this life.[flashvideo file=http://youtube.com/watch?v=JdsMqRaz2WY /]
