go ahead and name one single film better than shawshank, I'll wait...
nothing? lol that's what I though
well I'm outta here
Barry Lyndon should be number 1 if we are judging the themes of epics.
SureSkank was Stephen King being cuckish and it came out right when western civilisation was prepping the progressive bull hard, now we are being fucked by it too. Hard to resist a prison break movie, they get 3 extra points just for being in the genre, see Cool Hand Luke. This along with it being an epic with a Morgan Freeman voice over: well we just creamed ourselves anyway and it's like Brooks always said, 'what don't kill you only makes you...' wait he killed himself didn't he?
I hope you're fucking kidding
>first hour is corn and dust
>second hour is mediocre sci-fi
>last half hour is unwatchable
Also godfather part one, apocalypse now, there will be blood, goodfellas. Shawshank is overrated.
Those other ones seem too barred by niche, by that I mean many normie people have voiced reasons for not wanting to watch them: greaseballs, it ain't me starts playing, western, gangsta.
At best it's completely average. It's just completely inoffensive. The characters are seriously difficult to dislike and the story doesn't have any exceptional events.
It's almost impossible to hate, but I find it hard to believe people really love it.
I swear that Stephen King guy is the absolute master of story draw in where there is nothing at stake for you, only the characters, he could probably talk to you for 8 hours straight while you try to get in your car and leave, and you would welcome it but by then your wife would have cheated on you back home.
My bottom and top 10 (of the ones I've seen and remember, which in only just over half), including those which tie with the lowest rating.
