    Shawshank redemption as good as the escape is unmentioned till the very end and you realise the entire film was building to it, staring you in the face

    Why is The shawshank redemption not #1? The great escape was an amazing movie, but isn't even on the same level as Shawshank.

    What we have got here is a miserable video with ten good movies completely spoiled…It's like they did it on purpose they didn't talk about the movies at all…All they did was bloody reveal every climax…Could have been infinitely better in the hands of someone who respects filmmaking
