    I've been thinking long about this one and I just wanted to know what ya'll thought about the transfer, extras, and overall value of this one. Thanks.

    The sound isn't great, but that's my only gripe with this disc....come on, you have to get it, it's Forrest Gump!

    Eventually, your going to get edge enhancment eagle eyes in this thread telling you how aweful the transfer is, but I wouldn't listen, the transfer is really great on this one, especially if your 16x9 capable. And the audio is mainly frontstage oriented, but still very good. The commentary by Robert Zemeckis is worth the buy alone.
    A must own if your a fan of the movie.

    John stole my thunder! I think Zemeckis' commentary ranks among the best I've ever heard. The extensive features offer some eye candy, but they're nothing revolutionary.
    Plus, it's Forrest Gump! Great flick!

    The film itself worth buying but it's got some really nice extras. FYI, it is one of my most watched DVD [​IMG]
