Films are like a box of chocolates: sometimes they age really badly and get that weird white waxy stuff all over them and you're like "bleh, gross." This week, we're talking about the 1994 "masterpiece" FORREST GUMP, which-- spoiler alert-- has not aged well. Joined by very special guest Adam Nayman, we discuss on-the-nose musical cues, the Lt. Dan Band, and how nostalgia and cynicism combine to make a movie that is SURPRISINGLY dark. Listen, then buy Adam's books It Doesn't Suck and Ben Wheatley: Confusion and Carnage wherever books are sold!
