Forrest Gump tops my list of the best movies of all time. I've watched it 5 times and still can't get enough of it.

Forest Gump was the best movie I have seen in ages. I have watched in so many times I have lost count.


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

I used to cry during the scenes with his son Forrest. Even after seeing like a dozen times I still always end up watching it when it's on TV

The soundtrack has a lot of good songs on it.

I just love the underlying philosophy of Forrest Gump.

What I love about the movie is Forrest's instinctual connection with the law of attraction. He is acutely in tune with universal "vibrations" and and develops what I call the the "Okay! Philosophy." He knows exactly what his life cues are, and each one leads him to profound moments, both in history and in his own life. What the "world' sees as his greatest weakness, his lack of mental capacity, I see as the catalyst for the absence of ego, and the ego struggles that tend to get in the way of "normal" people's decision making process.

LOL, I have honestly coined the "Okay! Philosophy" based on Forrest Gump! If we should all be so lucky as to be unattached to things that cause us pain and harm.... smile

That movie is excellent. It is one of my favorite movies. I watched it again this weekend (for the i have no idea how many times) when it played on an uncensored channel.

This is one of the movies my children would watch over and over again often in the same sitting!

I like how the film manages to touch on so many aspects of the history and culture of the time too, like running through what has shaped the more recent form of the U.S. So much running. That part reminded me of In Country. The novel, the film wasn't as good unfortunately.

It was one of the first movies to show an ordinary character's life weaving into the great events of history by using actual historic footage. I loved how they put together Forrest's "conversation" with President Kennedy upon receiving the Medal of Honor. A fascinating movie.
