But?

Sorry. Re-edited my post to talk about Avatar.


I like Shawshank, it's a decent movie with golden age aspirations, but it's not fantastic by any stretch. It's comforting, I guess.

Speaking of "Avatar", glad to see your classic avatar back, Bart

Shawshank was the top-grossing film on home video in 1995. So its reputation started before the heavy TBS/TNT rotations. The closest we've come to a modern-day It's a Wonderful Life.

Shawshank is fucking great. In terms of pacing it's also one of the most remarkably edited movies I've ever seen.

SHAWSHANK is about as good as a film gets. It has earned its classic status.

shawshank is crafted a way that's SO easy to watch that it's popularity has made it really easy to dismiss that craft as sentimental fluff the way Spielberg is often dismissed

In terms of films being remembered and living long past the box-office triumphs and award-sweeps, The Shawshank Redemption has proven its lasting power. A great, Goddamn movie and yes one of my favorites. 

 

The nit-picky bullshit has only afflicted it in the last few years and that isn't from the general public who still adore it, similar to Forrest Gump. That's just the li'l film dweeb cunts talking - the same ones who would lose their shit, for example, if you dissected Fincher or Tarantino's work or Scott Pilgrim in the same fashion.

A very specific line, but an important distinction.

Tomato, tomahto, good Sir.

Wait, so you're saying there's NO significant difference between you the film nerd, and a film dweeb?

 

Hey if you say so!
