Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.

''There are places in this world that aren't made out of stone. That there's something inside... that they can't get to, that they can't touch. That's yours.''

Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.

Tim Robbins: Andy Dufresne

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

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

Most Overrated Movies At IMBD (10 movies items)

"It's Rated 9.2 by IMBD... it should be Rated between 7.0 & 7.4 It's Rated 4 for Good by the film industry I Rated 3.5 for Very Good with my rating system 9.2 it's really too high "


This was a while ago, I've seen a few better films since then. My favourite is now 'Memento'
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 "

Movie Reviews (1101-1150) (50 movies items)

" One of the few Stephen King adaptations that actually manage to deepen the story and given the characters richer details. Frank Darabont has beautifully adapted the novella with rich dialogue that is excellently acted by a male ensemble who give their all. It is no wonder this film is on the top of most lists. "
