    Once In A Lifetime Movie

    |
    Posted .

    I recommend this movie to everyone. You should watch it at least once in your lifetime, as this is the only movie of its kind. It's a special movie; Heart Warming, sad, funny, and happy all at once. It's a joy to watch Forrest go from his small town home, to playing football, then to Vietnam, to the creation of the smiley face and Apple, to his shrimp boat voyage, to the loss of his two true loves. If he was an ordinary man, he would not have made it through. This movie will rip at your heart, that is to say, if you have one.

    All time classic!

    I have never owned this movie and figured it’s about time. I was thinking about picking up the 4K edition, but I have read some reviews saying the transfer was not that good. I was hoping the 4K 25th Anniversary edition would get an upgrade. They only remastered the Blu-ray film. I’m ok with that, I don’t believe this movie requires to be in 4K. My 4K player upscales Blu-ray’s, so this will look great. I also wanted the SteelBook, because it looks pretty good! Only downer is.. there is no artwork on the inside, just plain tin. Still, great to finally have this, and $13. is well worth it!

    What can be said about Forrest Gump? One of the greatest films of all time that is worthy of multiple viewings. This classic film has one of the best story lines ever and Tom Hanks is simply at his talented best with his performance as a simple man who, despite being somewhat physically handicapped with rather low intelligence, gets involved with so many life experiences that touches the lives of so many around him. He gets a college degree, then serves his country in Vietnam. While on patrol during a routine operation, the platoon is ambushed, and Forrest's bravery saves the lives of many other soldiers in his platoon, including Lieutenant Dan, his platoon leader, who lost his legs and wanted to die with honor in the field instead, by making it his destiny. But Lieutenant Dan eventually thanks Forrest for his heroic unselfish bravery, despite earlier bitterness, as the two of them create the "Bubba Gump Shrimp Company" after fulfilling a promise to his fallen platoon-mate Bubba to start a shrimping business after they served in Vietnam. Gary Sinise's performance as Lieutenant Dan is just superb. Other great performances such as Sally Field as Forrest's mom and Robin Wright as Jenny, who is Forrest's childhood friend and eventually does win her heart and they do get married. Director Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Eric Roth, as well as the story based on the novel by Winston Groom make this oscar winning film a true treasure. The 4K picture is very good and the best this movie has ever looked. Highly recommend this 4K version to all Forrest Gump fans who know that "life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get."

    Decades later, my sentiments for Robert Zemeckis' Forrest Gump still remain true since first seeing it in theaters. Admittedly, it's a well-made production with a thoughtful plot and a terrifically memorable performance by Tom Hanks, but the story is frustratingly melodramatic and forcefully sentimental with a payoff that lacks both the punch and emotional impact the filmmakers seem to have been aiming for. On 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, the now-classic romance drama patiently waits for the bus, packed with a strong but somewhat underwhelming Dolby Vision HDR presentation and an excellent Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Featuring the same set of supplements as its Blu-ray counterpart, the overall package is ultimately recommended for devoted fans of the film while UHD enthusiasts will want to wait for the price to drop.

    It was like watching Forrest Gump for the first time. Colors and scenes popped and images looked so much more life-like. Special effects were also brilliant and smooth. I would highly recommend THIS 4K version over ALL others. The only thing that would make this Bluray better would be if it were in 3D. Hmm, one can only dream.

    Great Addition to my 4K UHD Library

    I'm very particular about what to add to my 4K UHD library, and I chose to add "Forest Gump" because it's a classic movie with the amazing Tom Hanks. The movie is fairly old, but the xfer to 4K is pretty decent. Video quality is generally good and sharp, though some colors seem a bit off. The audio quality is surprisingly good, especially in the battle scene with jets and explosions. The DVD is a worthwhile addition to my Library.

    It never made it to me, got lost in the mail. Best buy was unable to send a replacement. Guess I bought the last one in the western hemisphere. Cutomer service is better at Kmart, and they just closed their last store last week. But the movie, I already have it on dvd...just trying to expand my 4k collection. Its a great, one of a kind, masterpiece of a film. Just don't buy it at Bestbuy.

    STILL MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE MOVIE!

    |
    Posted .

    First let me say that I'm not going to get worked-up over Tom Hanks' portrayal of a mentally handicap character. While Forrest was not the sharpest tool in the shed, his IQ was not more than two standards deviations below the mean. Besides, Mr. Hanks is an actor, and he was merely acting according to the way the author wrote the character, the way the director directed the character, and his own interpretation of both. This is an exceptional movie--still my all-time favorite. I haven't actually watched it in a while, but when I do, I'm moved every time. How can one not be moved by a character so ingenuous, so resilient, and so good? How can one not be moved by such an incredible story, so skillfully directed? Bad things sometimes happen to good people. "It happens," as Forrest said. Someone once said that "life is ten percent what happens and 90 percent how I react to it." Never has this truth been so accurately portrayed as in this wonderful movie, "Forrest Gump." "Is he smart, or is he. . . .?" That scene clinched the Oscar for Tom Hanks, and I still can't watch it without getting a big lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. Tom Hanks is the best, most versatile actor of our time, and never has he been more brilliant than he was in this movie. No one with a pulse can watch this movie and not be moved by it--perhaps even changed. I could not recommend any movie more highly.

    What can I say that hasn't already been said about this excellent movie. It's a journey well worth taking and a much deserved Oscar win for Tom Hanks. The 4K is simply stunning. I've owned this on regular bluray for years but this version is superior in every way.

    The rating here is more about the excellence of the disc. I've never seen Forrest Gump look better than this 4K UHD transfer. If you love this movie, I recommend upgrading your blu ray or (gasp) DVD (if you're still holding on to that SD format).

    Not much to say as most people who are likely to buy this disk have already seen Forrest Gump. Tom hanks at his finest I purchased this to get the best possible picture on my 4K TV.

    Love the movie a story of a great man with a pure heart who moved mountains. Just wish he had found himself a nice pretty woman rather than stick with Jenny or whatever her name is. She should have appreciated him she didn't deserve devotion.

    Probably the best the film has looked and sounded since it's theatrical run. Many of the visuals hold up well, and the story is an essential look at the more recent history of America.

    Life is like a bunch of chocolates

    Directed by Robert Zemeckis, who also has another Tom Hanks gem to his credit, "Cast Away", this movie is one of my all time favorites in any genre. A drama, a comedy, a tear-jerker, it is a movie of many genres rolled up into one. A simple man, an innocent on the loose, an idiot savant in one of the most turbulent eras in our nations history, Forrest Gump never waivers in his moral integrity and manages to touch and influence the lives of many - famous and infamous. He is physically handicapped, but becomes an athlete of renown. He has sub-par intelligence but manages a college degree, becomes a decorated soldier in Vietnam, and makes a fortune in the shrimping business. A friendless child (except for Jenny) he develops deep friendships, including Bubba (Mykelti Williamson) a black soldier who indoctrinates him into the shrimping business; Lieutenant Dan (Gary Sinise in one of his best roles) who Forrest looks up to as a role model even when Dan becomes bitter after losing his legs in combat; and he finally wins the love of the wayward childhood friend, Jenny (Robin Wright Penn, also in one of her best roles). Tom Hanks as Forrest is extraordinary...he has so many fine performances, its hard to say this is his best, but it is my personal favorite. In summary, this film is a masterpiece...watch it once or a hundred times, you will always enjoy it. And remember..."life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get."

    All these years later, still an amazing movie. While the 4k disc is great, the visuals didn’t wow me in a way where I felt I was watching the film for a first time. Regardless, very solid purchase, still gets 5 stars
