Forrest Gump is just one of the best movies to come along, ever. Bash it all you want for it's alleged social commentary, or the fact it beat Pulp Fiction. If I'm having a bad day, I can always go on a trip through time with Forrest Gump. The way it quickly tells the story of the man while integrating an excellent soundtrack and so much history is amazing. I remember first seeing it on video when I was 9. Me and my sister stayed up real late on a school night to finish it. Back in that day it was a big deal because if we were caught we'd get in trouble but it was so good we just couldn't stop watching it. Did you know that the running segment in this film is the greatest seven minutes ever? I thought I'd inform you.
