Forrest Gump, Ghostbusters, Rocky

Unfortunately, I didn’t document my reactions in real time as I watched these classics. Instead, I’ll do a quick summary of my thoughts on each, as well as a rating out of 10.

Forrest Gump

This was much funnier than expected? I knew all the famous quotes, but I wasn’t prepared for the rest of it to be funny. “I must’ve drank me about fifteen Dr. Peppers” had me laughing out loud. Until the end, where apparently no one has ever told me that JENNY DIES?! WTF! Not sure how I made it my whole life without knowing that, but okay. Overall, I enjoyed this one and my one complaint is that it was super long (2 hours and 22 minutes).

Rotten Tomatoes score: 72%

LTVL Score: 7.5/10

Ghostbusters

We watched this on Halloween – fitting. This one also made me laugh more than expected. But I kept thinking how cheesy those damn demon dogs were. Lots of cheesy effects but I actually jumped a couple times. Oh, I also had no idea Sigourney Weaver was in this movie until I watched it. Good movie for Halloween watching.

Rotten Tomatoes score: 97%

LTVL Score: 6.5/10

Rocky

This one took me approximately half of the movie to actually get into. But by the actual fight I was intrigued to see what happens…then I couldn’t even really tell who won? And then it just ended with the “I love yous”? I kept waiting for “if he dies, he dies”, but apparently that’s in a different Rocky and I don’t plan on watching all 57 of them.
