Review of the Blu Ray (we know the movie is great)
Verified purchase
This was a long awaited upgrade from my old dvd purchased in the 90’s! Even the 4K version is out now, but I purchased this 25th anniversary digitally remastered edition on blu ray for £8 & it was always going to be a nice upgrade all the way around, the picture is clear in 1080p & it sounds great too in 5.1 surround. My only gripe on the title menu screen is that it could be clearer when switching between options as the font is black and the shading around the words is brown, so it’s not obvious what you are navigating towards.
The Extras though are great, loads of new stuff added in including a great & recent cast Q&A up on a stage at a university which is 50mins long, all the extras exceed 3 hours, so you get your moneys worth there for sure! There are two separate movie commentaries to listen to (I listened to both) & both offer a different viewpoints, thoughts & insights on the movie along the way. So all I can say is that I recommend this blu ray edition. An all time classic & great package for the price.

The Subtitles don't work when Forrest Gump is narrating..
Verified purchase
Whenever Forrest Gump was narrating the script, there was no subtitles shown on the screen. It ruined our watching of the movie as my girlfriend is Hungarian and although she speaks very good English she reads the subtitles as often she can't understand what is being spoken on the screen.
I would like a refund of the money I paid for the film.

Amazon Prime is not a good way to try to see this film. Still costs you, but it’s a waste.
Verified purchase
Very good film but an awful experience on Amazon Prime. As someone else said, the subtitles don’t appear when Gump is narrating. There are many times a song is being played (there are subtitles of lyrics) but no sound at all. The dialogue was out of sync from the beginning and after stopping it and then resuming, it improved and then quickly went out of sync. GRRRRR. This is so frustrating. Another £3.99 wasted.

Does anyone care at Amazon? Jeff Bezos? Or does it not really matter?

This is a fantastic movie about a young man named Forrest and his life story.
The movie starts at the end. Forrest, man in his 30s, recounts his whole life to some people as he waits for his bus. Forrest is a kind soul but isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. He encounters great tragedies throughout his life, but he is positive throughout and loyal to his friends. Throughout the movie, Forrest has some exceptional good luck which make you laugh and cry with him.
This movie is one of the most well made movies in the whole of the movie making business. I LOVE this movie. I rarely ever buy movies as I will just find another way to watch them if I can't find them on prime. But this movie I bought for my easy viewing pleasure. It is so so so good. I cry whenever I watch this movie and I could watch it on repeat.
Please try this movie. If you have never watched this movie you generally have not lived!!

Forrest Gump: 25th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray)
Verified purchase
A classic film I hadn't watched until recently and now I am kicking myself for not seeing it sooner!

It's very heart-warming and tugs a lot of emotions throughout. The cast was perfectly suited, combined with a great story and you get one heck of a film.

The Blu-Ray features the original film digitally remastered; whilst I can't comment on what the original looked like, I can say the quality was very good through a 4KTV.

Love it!

Absolutely love this film! It's totally unrealistic lol, but if you can suspend your beliefs as to what is possible and what isn't, i.e. callipers miraculously dropping off etc and simply view it as entertainment, I'm sure you would thoroughly enjoy it!
Tom Hanks is BRILLIANT! It's definitely a film to keep, and deserves more than one viewing!

One of a kind movie.

If you haven’t seen this movie yet then you should!
It’s a great, heartwarming story and has comedy and sad moments in it. If you have a heart, you will will need to dry your eyes more than once. Unusual and somewhat sentimental, but nevertheless charming and moving at the same time.

A heartwarming film, loved it.

This is a really fantastic story, I love how Forrest succeeds in his life, his mother is told he's stupid but some how his mother always knows how to explain things to him so he understands, his relationship with Jenny is so sweet and strong ,why does it take her so long to realise she loves Forrest,
I hadn't seen this film in a while , but now I remember why it's one of my favourites , it's a underdog story, someone who had no propects goes on to excel in his life and brings joy to people especially his friends along the way.
