    Life is like a box of chocolates....:D

    Forest Gump is out on Blu Ray tomorrow....Amazon has it for $22.99, Best Buy $24.99, and Wally World is unusually highest at $25.86.

    This is one classic with great footage worthy of adding to the collection. :)

    I thought maybe Zemekis was using more movie magic to make it look like Forrest Gump did come out on 1/2009 :)

    I'll get it without the chocolates... but I'll certainly be getting it.

    Got it for $23.99 with price match at Best Buy.

    It was also nice to see the $10 rebate sticker on the front as well - send in proof of purchase from the standard DVD that I had from a couple years back...and get a $10 rebate check.

    So my net will be $13.99 for the Blu Ray version...run Forrest run...:D

    Maybe it's just me, but I just didn't "get" this movie. Didn't seem like anything but an excuse to show that they could put Mr. Hanks into a bunch of historical footage...:confused::confused:

    Perhaps this review will explain it.

    That's probably the best summary of this flick that I've ever seen.

    I guess there's a reason it was nominated and won so many awards. :D

    I've passed on this one for now. I enjoyed it in theaters, owned it on DVD and enjoyed watching it once or twice in that format and might get it again later, but don't see myself re-watching it again enough now to justify paying the current pricing on it. When it drops down to a range that makes it unforgivable not to buy it at, I'll probably pick it up again. Until then, I've spent enough on other classics lately, including Green Mile (that was a definite must own for me). And North By Northwest (absolutely must own for me).

    $13 is what I ended up paying for the Blu Ray...sounds pretty reasonable...

    ($23 price match at Best Buy - $10 mail-in rebate check with proof of purchase from original standard DVD = $13 net price).
