My favorite film "Forrest Gump"

Almost everybody likes to watch movies and we have seen a lot of them. Some of them are better than others. Sometimes people have different opinions whether a particular movie is good or not. The movie I like the most is a story about mentally deficient man. The whole picture is funny, moving and we see a great performance by actors and actresses. Therefore my favorite movie is "Forrest Gump" by Robert Zemeckis. The movie is full of very funny dialogues and situations. It's a good quality humor though. We have many chances to laugh at innocence and the naivety of Forrest. I find that kind of humor very interesting and the whole movie is really funny. "Forrest Gump" is a very moving story. It shows that it's possible to enjoy life without being stingy, materialistic or ruthless. It helps us to realize that there are many people among us that were born with various defects. That fact makes me think how fortunate I am to be totally healthy. The movie contains also a love story. It's a dramatic plot because Forrest loves a girl who doesn't think of him as a serious partner because of his defect. However they eventually get married. Although she passes away due to a fatal disease. Moreover we see love between mother and son where Forest's mom even slept with the school principal in order to give the son a chance of going to a normal school. All those things make me think of this movie as of a very moving story. We see very good performance by Tom Hanks and many other actors and actresses. The movie was awarded with eleven Academy Awards, which is a very good proof that it's a fabulous movie. As a result I consider Tom Hanks one of the best actors.
As we've seen I have many reasons to think that this movie is the one I like the most. Great humor, moving scenes and a great performance by the actors and actresses are my main arguments.…...

... Situation analysis Kenya’s forests are rapidly declining due to pressure from increased population and other land uses. With B of the country being arid and semi-arid, there is a lot of strain on the rest of the land since the economy is natural resource based. The productive area which forms about 20% of the country’s area falls in the medium and high potential agro-ecological zones and is under agriculture, forest and nature reserves. According to FAO Forest Resource Assessment 1990, Kenya is classified among the countries with low forest cover of less than 2% of the total land area. The dwindling forest cover has a severe effect on the climate, wildlife, streams, human population especially forest dwellers. Introduction. Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area, but swaths the size of Panama are lost each and every year. The world’s rain forests could completely vanish in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation. Reasons for cutting down the trees Forests are cut down for many reasons, but most of them are related to money or to people’s need to provide for their families.The biggest driver of deforestation is agriculture. Farmers cut forests to provide more room for planting crops or grazing livestock. Often many small farmers will each clear a few acres to feed their families by cutting down trees and burning them in a......

With-in this film they portray this by the use of the common house-hold phrase, “Life is a box of chocolates.” Throughout the film, many symbols are commonly displayed.

...ISSN 1940-204X ISSN 1940-204X Forest Hill Paper Company Thomas L. Albright University of Alabama Introduction Forest Hill Paper Company (FHPC) is a small, closely-held paperboard manufacturer that produces a broad line of paperboard in large reels, termed parent rolls. These parent rolls are sold to converters who further process them into containers used for a diverse line of consumer products, such as packaging for microwavable meals. The owners of FHPC have long pursued the strategy of producing a full range of products. As a small company competing against large companies in a commodity market, management believes Forest Hill must offer a full range of both products and services. Thus, Forest Hill’s strategy is to create a niche based on service and rapid response to customer needs. While product diversity within a paperboard plant would not be apparent to a casual observer, subtle differences exist. For example, paperboard differs by basis weight (thickness determined by caliper measurements) for a specified length of product. Additionally, paperboard may be uncoated or coated with an opaque, white clay-based material that masks cosmetic flaws and smooths surface variability. Customers are increasingly concerned with surface variability because an extremely smooth finish is required to accommodate complex printed designs on the completed paperboard container or carton. FHPC produces 20 different grades of paperboard. Some grades are produced in large......

...It was a spooky forest, dull, grey and filled with twisted trees, branches that reached out and the deeply cracked bark. The trees surrounding the edge of the forest with the branches clustered and tangled together which created an archway which dared people to enter its midst. These were far from a silent set of woods though. They had the smell of rotten corpses. There was always a thick fog that was visible in the forest. It felt like a monsters den, howling every night that was heard miles away. Paulina was a great person, she loved going on adventures and exploring places. She was young and was free. It was her ambition, so one day, she heard about the forest, due to her ambition she wanted to visit it. It was a cold and dark night, the frost hit her, the cold frost hitting against her with the wind. She walked through the fog towards the archway created by the trees, all that she could see was darkness. She entered... Carrying on for only about 15 minutes and then stopped. She shifted her view to her left and to the right to see if anything else apart from the darkness was visible. There was rarely any light coming from anywhere apart the gleaming moon on the puddles... But the puddles didn’t look like ordinary puddles. They gave out a dark red colour like blood. It made her insides turn, for assuming the worst. She panicked, all alone she had no one to turn to apart from herself of course. She stood out in the middle with her bright hair and skin.

...receive in return. Turnbull discovered that this method is how they Pygmies trade with the villagers. When the Pygmies trade their meat with the villagers they are guaranteed to receive tobacco and palm in return. Turnbull also made observations regarding the Pygmies relationship to the forest. The Pygmies feel as if they are good to the forest then the forest will supply them with plentiful amounts of food. Another observation made by Turnbull was the fact that there are no leaders and no social classes. He wondered how the Pygmies remained so peaceful. From observing the Pygmies he realized that the ways they enforce the laws is truly incredible. They have sets rules that they all must follow and by not following the few simple rules can result in banishment. Turnbull though that crime rate and criminal activity would be great, but was he dead wrong. The Pygmies know that they cannot survive in the forest alone so they are not likely to disobey the laws. Though the Pygmies are not perfect, by any means, they live in relative harmony with their world, have close social relationships, and have no major social problems. They find security and they value people, family, the forest, community, and sharing - not material possessions....

The way that momma interacted with Forrest is to encourage him, and reassure him that he was like everyone else. Even when unknown people on the street stared at the strange little boy with braces on his feet she made sure that Forrest knew that he was special. This was how he benefitted from his relationship with his mother. Momma on the other hand got the benefit of seeing Forrest amount to everything and more than what she imagined for her son. When the local school rejected him for a “special” school she would not take no for an answer, in these kinds of conflicts she fought for her son. Close to the end of the movie when Momma was on her dead bed she once again reassured Forrest that he was her special son.”Death is just a part of life.

...To: Group 2 From: Britany Kouba Date: 9/24/2015 Subject: Forest Hill Paper Company Forest Hill Paper Company is a small closely-held manufacturing company that produces paperboard in large reels. Their strategy is to produce a full range of products and to create a niche by focusing on customer service and rapid response to customer needs. The company is currently producing twenty different grades of paperboard. Forest Hill competes against large companies in a commodity market, which is why they strive for having a variety of products and services. One issue facing the company is that paperboard industry’s demand fluctuates every three or four years. Therefore, the company will have large orders for a couple years and then minimal orders for a couple years. During the high demand years, the demand for paperboard exceeds the company’s capacity. Additionally, market share for domestic paperboard is declining as trends are growing for plastic and more environmentally friendly grades of paperboard. Forest Hill also has a large variety of products with different costs. Some of their products use more materials and take a longer time to produce, making the cost higher. As a team, we should look at how the company is figuring out costs for each product and understand the costs that come with manufacturing the different products. We should also look at how slitting and grade changes affect cost. The team needs to look at what the cost drivers are. Within the next...

Any attempt to describe him will risk making the movie seem more conventional than it is, but let me try. It's a comedy, I guess. Or maybe a drama. Or a dream. The screenplay by Eric Roth has the complexity of modern fiction, not the formulas of modern movies. Its hero, played by Tom Hanks, is a thoroughly decent man with an IQ of 75, who manages between the 1950s and the 1980s to become involved in every major event in American history. And he survives them all with only honesty and niceness as his......
