Forrest Gump is horrible. Just thought I'd mention that indisputable fact. It wasn't horrible, but it baffles me that it beat out Shawshank and Pulp Fiction for the best picture Oscar. They're both so obviously superior.
Really? Ok, Shawshank hands down was better. But Pulp Fiction? Don't get me wrong, I loved that movie, especially Samuel Jackson's character. But there were a good number of dumb parts. If I am going to hear a word starting with 'M' in that movie, I don't want it to be "milkshake". It was funny, I got some laughs. But I think that Forrest Gump was a better movie all around. Perhaps I shall be tarred and feathered for liking a movie that [gasp] other people like, but alas, I'd rather tell the truth than be edgy and kewl because I don't like Forrest Gump.
(But yes, Shawshank was a better film, but I don't let that detract from Forrest.)
