On July 9, the wonderful, versatile actor, filmmaker and producer Tom Hanks will turn a fabulous 60! For this Throwback Thursday, let's look back at this amazing talent and touch on some of his extensive filmography that began in the 1980s. Over the years, I've enjoyed several of his movies and characters, and am truly thankful for his work and contribution to the arts. Although for my child… (more)
For this Throwback Thursday, we celebrate the one and only Sally Field, who turns 70 on Sunday. This Scorpio first captured hearts in popular sitcoms Gidget and The Flying Nun. I, however, had the joy of being introduced to her on the big screen with Murphy's Romance and later Steel Magnolias. One of the great things about Sally Field, for me, is that I always thought she would be a great an… (more)

Forrest Gump: You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father's bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin' was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't. Little Forrest, he's doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He's really good. We fish a lot. And every night, we read a book. He's so smart, Jenny. You'd be so proud of him. I am. He, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can't read it. I'm not supposed to, so I'll just leave it here for you. 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. I miss you, Jenny. If there's anything you need, I won't be far away.

Drill Sergeant: Gump! What's your sole purpose in this army?
Forrest Gump: To do whatever you tell me, drill sergeant!
Drill Sergeant: God damn it, Gump! You're a god damn genius! This is the most outstanding answer I have ever heard. You must have a goddamn I.Q. of 160. You are goddamn gifted, Private Gump. Listen up, people...
Forrest Gump: [narrates] Now for some reason I fit in the army like one of them round pegs. It's not really hard. You just make your bed real neat and remember to stand up straight and always answer every question with "Yes, drill sergeant."
Drill Sergeant: ...Is that clear?
Forrest Gump: Yes, drill sergeant!
My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get...

SummaryAdd a Summary
Best movie ever!! (in my opinion) So Forrest Gump gets bullied as a kid because he can't run and he wears braces on his legs, eventually the same people who bullied him, bullies him when he's grow up and he starts to run away and the braces come off his legs and he can run!! Forrest has a love who he has loved since he was a child that person is Jenny but Jenny doesn't love him back she'd rather live on the edge. Forrest plays football in college which leads to him eventually joing the army there he meets Bubba and Bubba loves shrimp! And this whole story is told from Forrests persepective as he waits to go on the bus to meet...Jenny!!...and Jenny has a certain suprise for him but it is a good movie :)
There is a boy named forest and he has a friend whose a girl. Then he's on a football team and well he surely does run like the wind. He gets bullied by these 3 boys in a car and well he starts running.Then the braces on his feet come off.They get even older and then there sum love scenes and she becomes a singer and then she leaves him which i think is very sad. :( but still also a good movie:)
