Anybody else love "The Shawshank Redemption"?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Im watching it again on TV now for the millionth time it seems. I never get sick of that movie. It was probably the best movie adaptation of a Stephen King story ever. Morgan Freeman, Tim Robbins and a host of other great actors. Something about that flick that never gets old.

Anything by Stephen King! I'm a King freak! Problem is some of his movies weren't made to do justice to his writing, but I do love Shawshank. Love the Shining and the Stand was great!

I love The Shawshank Redemption, and will never tire of watching it. Every year or so I will watch it in full if it's on TV.

Yeah, somehow the horror of a Stephen King book doesn't translate well to screen. I think it's because much of the strength of his writing comes from characterization, and either that's hard to get across in a horror story, or the directors just don't have the vision to get 'er done.

Anyway, here's another vote for Shawshank Redemption and also one of my favorite (and most underappreciated, at least by the critics) authors of all time, Stephen King.

That is most defintely one of my favourite movies of all time! My bf and I bought it on DVD a few years ago and every few months we'll still turn it on or watch it on t.v. It's one of THE best from Stephen King!
