    Shawshank has the better story, Gump is the last torch-holder for false ideals/values that babyboomers held as immortal universal truths


    guess it depends on which of those you place more importance on

    I feel like Forrest Gump was an inverse version of Idiocracy with the opposite message.

    Still enjoyed it, but

    Both are brilliant top notch movies but I'd give the edge to Forrest Gump. I could re watch both many times.

    Instead of listing them, it's easier to just watch the movie, I mean it wasn't that bad

    Shawshank

    It just has more re-watch'ability for me.
