    The Shining

    I'll argue that this is one of the best movies of all time.

    I think Shawshank is probably a better overall film than The Shining, but Jack's performance in the film is so ridiculously good (his best work IMHO) that I have to give it my vote.

    White man's burden @Swaye my man.


    China Town and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest are both great. The Shining probably captures Jack’s strange energy the best. Five Easy Pieces is another good performance. Jack is one of the very best actors of all time. I’ve seen most of his movies.
    Speaking of Jack I think he’d have to be a 1 or 2 seed in the greatest actor tournament whenever my lazy ass can get to it.

    The Shining

    Shawshank comes on, I sit down and watch. Every time.

    Me2. Freeman is so Goddamn'd good in that film, I can't look away or change the channel. The scene where he goes and finds the hidden box in the rock wall is one of the best movie scenes I've ever seen. Fucking perfect.

    Mine is when they are sitting on the roof after hot mopping sipping beers feeling like kings.

    Quite honestly I didn't see Shawshank. Had no idea that was Stephen King

    What the fuck? Dude.

    Must see.

    Not that it matters, but my first thought was Race watched all of Ray Donovan (possibly the dumbest show I have ever seen) and the Ray Donovan movie but never watched Shawshank.

    The Dead Zone
    I didn't see it on the list but carry on

    I've watched part of it. Not impressed. Typical prison movie. I prefer women's prison movies

    I agree completely and the orchestration from when he gets out of the back of the truck through the end of the movie (and into the credits) is perfect.

    Had ~16 hours on airplanes this week with a very wide array of movies to pick from. Including Shawshank. So of course I watched it for like the 20th time.

    Even with editing for language and slight scene editing (stupid airline) it's amazing. Get busy living or get busy dying.

    We don't agree on much, but we agree on this. Him looking around to make sure nobody is watching - I could feel the tension and excitement myself. Great scene.

    Shawshank was my introduction to Freeman. Legendary performance.

    And the narration was flawless.

    The Family Guy Shawshank is pretty good. Would recommend. 9.8/10

    Shawshank’s a great movie but it’s second behind The Green Mile.

    Statists and Authoritarians don't understand that scene nor the feelings it provokes.

    And the Italian Opera singers blasting through the yard? Another great scene the same groups fail to grasp the meaning of.

    "So he plays a record of women singing. What's the big deal?" - they ask. FT, FM, FE.

    I voted for it from the ending alone. Not many movies stick with me but the ending of the Mist has stuck with me. Very sad yet hopeless feeling in the moment only to see they could have survived.

    But then again as a RaceBannon minion I also have not watched Shawshank Redemption nor did I know it was a Stephen King adaptation.
