Working, please wait...
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.

“Just like Ocean’s Eleven, it’s like watching a two-hour highlight reel of an awesome Hollywood party that you weren’t invited to; only, in this case, this particular shindig was a 1970s-themed costume bash.”Flight (2012)
“It’s Planespotting; two characters struggle with substance abuse and their road to recovery is a turbulent one.”The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
“We expect Benjamin to have interesting things happen to him, but no, he’s just a boring man with an odd condition.”American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”Inglourious Basterds (2009)
“It’s hard to fault a film for not being what you want it to be, but one can’t help but wonder what would happen if Tarantino treated his material with a little more maturity or respect.”Boyhood (2014)
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”
