When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Forrest Gump is a simple man with a low I.Q. but good intentions. He is running through childhood with his best and only friend Jenny. His 'mama' teaches him the ways of life and leaves him to choose his destiny. Forrest joins the army for service in Vietnam, finding new friends called Dan and Bubba, he wins medals, creates a famous shrimp fishing fleet, inspires people to jog, starts a ping-pong craze, creates the smiley, writes bumper stickers and songs, donates to people and meets the president several times. However, this is all irrelevant to Forrest who can only think of his childhood sweetheart Jenny Curran, who has messed up her life. Although in the end all he wants to prove is that anyone can love anyone. Written by
When Forrest is pushing Lieutenant Dan in his wheelchair across the street in New York City, the song playing in the background is "Everybody's Talking" by Harry Nilsson, and Lieutenant Dan exclaims to a cab driver, "I'm walking here, I'm walking here!" This is an obvious homage to a scene in Midnight Cowboy (1969) with the same line and music. See more »
Around the 6 minute mark when Forrest and his mom are crossing the street, the same black truck in the background passes them twice, before his foot gets caught in the sewer grate and right after, after the camera cuts to a different view. See more »

In my opinion, no film has touched me more than this one.....
Quite simply, the greatest film ever made.
Humour, sadness, action, drama and a Vietnam film all rolled into one.
I'm not a stone cold, heartless villain, but it takes a lot to make me cry when I watch a movie. Bambi's mother, I couldn't care less. Jimmy Stewart in, "Oh, what a wonderful life," - yeah right! The Lion King, when Mufasa bites the big one - on the verge.
But seriously - I bawled my big brown eyes out, on several occasions in this film. A real tear-jerker, and a wonderful character, played to perfection by Tom Hanks. Every bit as worthy for the Oscar as Rooney was to win the Premiership in 2007.
I cannot say it enough: This is THE film of all time. Watch it, and you'll see.
