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:

My wonderful cat, Kawie, passed away on 11/23/08. He had a remarkable soul, and I miss him deeply. Thank you, my buddy, for sharing your life with me.

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).
