Critic Review - New York Times

Forrest Gump has the elements of an emotionally gripping story. Yet it feels less like a romance than like a coffee-table book celebrating the magic of special effects.

Hey idiot-finder, I'm not sure if you're attempting to be funny or insulting or both, but there's no need to call a critic an idiot. Reviewing is more than liking and disliking, it's expressing your opinion.

That makes no fucking sense, a coffee table book can't have special effects. This comment doesn't count.

I'm really not much of a fan of this movie, but I just read this review on metacritic, where it was considered positive with a 70/100 rating. Why is it rotten on here?

Why don't you pull your head out of your ass, leave your studio apartment, and enjoy the movie for what it really is... You pompous a$$clown. Die in a fire
