Forrest Gump (1994)

Winner of three Golden Globe Awards and six Academy Awards including Best Picture, this was shown on TV several times. For this really made Tom Hanks very famous on. Joining him are Sally Field, Gary Sinise, Robin Wright, and Haley Joel Osmont. Based on the book by Winston Groom, and directed by Robert Zemeckis, thank Paramount Pictures for this.

From 1956 to 1981, Forrest Gump (named after a Confederate soldier who was the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan) had been a Vietnam War hero, a shrimping boat fisherman, a college football star, a ping pong champion, and a running marathon man, as he got to see the historical events in the 20th century. He even got to meet U.S. presidents Kennedy, LBJ, and Nixon when he was a man. When he was a boy wearing leg braces, he met Elvis Presley. Other historical events he got to see and meet were a black panther party, playing ping pong in China, and meeting up with his girlfriend in Washington DC, during the anti-war March on the pentagon. Many more historical events and famous people that you should’ve seen.

He told all of this to people at a bus stop while heading to his girlfriends place. And after he left, he got the chance marry his long time love named Jenny in the end. Right before she died of a terminal illness. And got to look over their only son before going off to school. Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel awarded this ‘two thumbs up’ as they loved this very much. Especially when Forrest Gump can go as run very fast. Can easily beat Terry Fox in a race. Oh, and he does have the strength to beat someone up.

So for a success, 8.8 out of 10 stars is what I give.
