Robert Zemeckis is the focus of my latest top 5 and today marks his birthday. Robert has won just one Oscar in this career for Forrest Gump but he was also nominated for Screenplay in Back to the Future. I am focusing on picking my favourite directed work which leaves me 25 options. What films are your favourite of this great man’s career?
Flight follows a alcoholic pilot who manages to land an impossible crash but gets heavily criticized for being over the legal limited to fly leading to court case. This film took a tone we wouldn’t be used to seeing from Robert but still ends up being one of the best in 2012.
I would have to say this is the least popular on my list but to me it really is one of those films that really is enjoyable and looks into a science which has been question even if we know it isn’t a reality.
Wilson, anyway when our hero gets involved in a plane crash he finds himself stranded on an island in the middle of the ocean, alone he must find a way to survive and makes friends with a volley ball.
I could have easily put all three films on my list but you can’t be the classic start of one of the most popular films of all time. The fact this film is 30 years old and is still considered a classic shows just how popular it really is.
This really was an easy pick for number one, the number of times I have seen and cried along with Forrest is becoming countless and will always be a classic too me.
