You listed every reason why I want and don’t want to watch this movie at the same time.

Don’t hate Forrest Gump, John. You gotta appreciate its idealism.

What about Cast Away, though? I mean, it’s too long, and the ending is way too sentimental, but Hanks plays his ass off in that film. I couldn’t choose what’s his best movie, but Saving Private Ryan is in the top 5, for sure.
