In this episode of Mr. Mendo’s Hack Attack, Mr. Mendo lists the 7 worst things about Forrest Gump, the tale of a simpleminded buffoon who somehow lucks into having the greatest life ever, while everyone around him suffers and dies horribly. But you probably know this movie best as the 1994 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture, beating out Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption despite being mawkish, syrupy, and nauseatingly trite.
Join Mendo as he rights some wrongs, solves the Kennedy assassination, exposes the fascist ideology of Tom Hanks, reveals what’s in Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase, and takes a cue from the film itself by raping as many classic pop songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s as humanly possible.

Ursa reviews the movie, while Mendo unleashes a torrent of mindless self-indulgence, complete with cameos from Johnny Oldschool, the Unusual Suspect, Liam AKA Cheapus, Joey Tedesco as Dr. Rockso, a musical interlude from Full of Questions, and a special appearance by Robert Million as the Log Lady. Yes, all of this happens during the review. Honest to blog.Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
“This film has an even more misleading title than Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.”Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 3 of 3)
“For a film that talks about the importance of humanity and human survival, it shows shockingly little faith in it.”The Theory of Everything (2014)
“Unlike A Beautiful Mind, at least The Theory of Everything can admit that the husband and wife at the center of its story eventually got a divorce.”
