After watching this, I thought about the movie. The first part I remembered was where he beat the **** out of Jenny's boyfriend. I decided I wanted to watch it again. Going on youtube, the only version I could find was in German.

So I just watched Forrest kick the crap out of the dude while everyone screamed at them in German.

It was a good day.

Every so often there comes along a movie that has near perfect writing. The story, the action, the characters, everything just clicks and works in a seamless way.

Some movies, like the Dark Knight, are remembered not for the brilliance of the movie itself but for one specific character or scene.

This is one of the few movies that is remembered not only for perfect writing, but for a perfect character. If anyone here has not seem Forrest Gump, get off your virgin neckbeard ass and buy, torrent or netflix this ******* movie before I shove a chocolate banana up your dick.

I always loved the look of first Joy and then relief on his face to know his son is not like him, whatever he was.

It was just a movie.
He didn't really go to the War
He didn't run for 3 years
Forrest Gump didn't really exist.

I've always interpreted this movie to be about destiny. Forrest Gump suffers from borderline mental retardation, which would destine him to a mediocre life. However, he defies this destiny and instead does best with the hand he's dealt. He influences Elvis and Lennon, becomes a war hero, meets 3 presidents, becomes a world famous ping pong player, ect. Meanwhile, the lady who drives the school bus remains a bus driver throughout the movie, despite being dealt a much better hand in life than Forrest. So the movie shows that there isn't really such thing as destiny; what people accomplish in life isn't predestined at birth.

Also, when Forrest speaks at Jenny's tomb, he says "Jenny, I don't know if Momma was right or if, if it's Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time." The feather floating around in the breeze and the famous quote "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get" both allude to chance.

TDLR; I think Forrest Gump's theme is defying destiny. Anyone else have any other interpretations?
