Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Think we're at the point where it's basically impossible for me to get one by anyone with so few options left, but I'll give it another go. These will either get insanely vague after this and/or stop...

Broader thoughts on Shawshank:

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

I think this may have been true of me the first time. Either I didn't get through it, or I did and didn't think much of it. I tried it again years later and liked it a lot more. Maybe "liked" is the...

Your mind is a weapon
As much as a gun
And to freedom it beckons
Come rain or come sun

Sometimes it's heroic
Merely to sing

Gotta agree with this. Love a lot of the actors involved, love the Coens, but for some reason it just never struck me the same way. It's good, I enjoy it, but I've never been able to understand the...

Skepsis and Daniel and matt and others all over this one. Nice job! Genuinely wasn't sure who would get them.
