Forrest, Forrest Gump

One of the most beloved movies recorded in Georgia is Forrest Gump. This movie is the story of a man who has an IQ of 75. He manages to involve himself in all major events in American history between the 1950s and the 1980s. What makes them unique is how he survives everything around him using his shields of niceness and honesty.

This movie did not turn into a story simply about a mentally retarded man to warm our hearts. Instead, it’s more about seeing through the eyes of someone who lacks cynicism and who takes things at face value. He is a man who seems to be just clever enough.

Forrest was born in Alabama to a mother who owns a boardinghouse. She tried to correct his posture by him wearing braces on his legs, but always encouraged him mentally. Though Forrest is called stupid by other children in his school, he ends up being able to do many profound things throughout his life. One day, the braces fall off his legs and he discovers he can run exceptionally fast.

Forrest is awarded a college football scholarship because of his running. He then fights in Vietnam and receives the medal of honor, while also becoming a ping-pong champion. He then becomes the captain of the shrimp boat and, soon after, a millionaire stockholder of Apple Computer. Later in life, he takes a run across America, then turns around and runs the other way.

Many people may argue that Forrest would not be able to understand the things that have happened to him because of his IQ of 75. Thing is, he is able to understand all he needs to know. Everything else is simply surplus. He understands love and commitment, and that gets him through a lot of challenges in life.

Forrest Gump is a movie that makes you think twice about people with disabilities. It is a wonderful story and one of my favorites.

The Walking Dead

One of the most popular series recorded in Georgia is the show, “The Walking Dead.” In this series, we first see the main character, Rick Grimes, riding his horse down Jackson Street bridge on Freedom Parkway in Atlanta, Georgia after waking up from a coma. He found that the world he knew was in ruins, and was soon left in charge of a group of survivors trying to stay alive in the New World. The show took off as Rick and other characters in the show fought against zombies and humans alike.

Initially, more than 5 million people tuned in to see the iconic image of Jackson Street Bridge in turmoil. My friends at wedding photography Atlanta GA took some great pictures of this actually while they were there! Deputy Rick Grimes had been shot, leading to his coma. When he finally woke up, he found himself in a zombie apocalypse. Luckily, the zombies had not been able to enter his room at the hospital. He left the hospital in search of his family. He soon reconnects with them, but discovers a lot has changed since his time in the hospital since they thought he had died there.

Once the family situation is under control, Rick and his family connect with a group of survivors and he becomes their leader. He takes charge of the group and tries to help them survive, find food, and locate a place they can live. The whole basis of the show is about survival, the risks people are willing to take, and the things you made to in order to survive.

The Walking Dead has grown in popularity since his initial debut. Cable TV records have been smashed and tourism around Atlanta as picked up, thanks to the show. The Atlanta movie Tours draws in over 10,000 customers a year as people run to get in line for tickets to see the zombie themed options the company offers.
