Tim Robbins: Andy Dufresne

Acting by every person in this movie are all Oscar worthy in my book, from Tim Robbins portrayin... read more

Not a single review for this one? I'm shocked.

It's number 1 IMDB (ignore the fact that Godfather, which has less votes and lower IMDB score is still holding #1 spot for past year, Shawshank is the TRUE number 1 IMDB movie). And the highest rated popular movie on here as well.

But i guess a movie like this doesn't really need reviews; it's absolutely perfect, and... read more

The Cliché Redemption

“How this movie is at the top of IMDb top 250 nobody knows, but one thing is certain: Shitty movie made for people with low IQ get excited. Maybe that's why I don't like it.

Often cited as “my absolute favourite movie” by people who collect cuddly toys and probably still support the death penalty.

Shawshank famously became a sleeper hit on DVD sales after bombing in the cinema. Because of this, it has acquired a reputation as ‘The People’s Choice’. And this just makes it even more irritating.

Fanboys will tell you how they’ve seen it 17 times and talk about its deeper themes that touch on hope, identity and what it is to be human.

In reality its Clinton Cards cod philosophizing is laid on so thick it’s like being waterboarded with Dairyl” read more

I can believe this to be true if it's the only film you've ever seen. Of course whether you like something or not is subjective so I fully understand that for some people Shawshank is the best film t

"Re-watch - Dec. 16th Jailbreak double-feature I don't need to go into this one, right? The story, the characters, the message of hope...there's not much to dislike about this film. In fact I can't think of anything to dislike about it. The only reason I hadn't watched it in a while is because for years it was always on cable somewhere, and when I still lived with my parents my dad would watch it every time he came across it. This may have been the first time I watched it since moving out of my "
