Pretty film nerdy, but worth a skim.

Anyone watching NFL Network? Te'o press conference just ended. Mayock just called Rich Eisen a conspiracy theorist for deigning to question Te'o's sincerity.

I believe Shawshank wasn't received as an all-time great back then; only a pretty good movie. Then the lol critics had to go back and say wait, this movie is one of the best ever made

It wasn't just critics. Like nobody saw Shawshank when it first came out. I like the movie but it's hardly an all-time great imo, it just has themes that people on the internet love so they grasp onto it and act like it's the GOAT.

What other movies would you describe as having "internet people themes"?

Yeah, I've never really gotten the massive love affair people have with Shawshank. It's quite good but seems way overrated. Then again it was a rare case where I had read the book already so was comparing it to that which is often hopeless.

Speaking of which, Stephen King's non-horror writing seems massively underrated; he has some of my favorite stories ever, a lot of which were later adapted as highly regarded films. But King is apparently destined to be best known for his horror stories.

No.

There's literally nothing wrong with Shawshank. That movie was perfect from start to finish and being the only movie besides Children Of Men to make me cry out of pure joy is an accomplishment.

Shawshank haters cite specifics or step off.

**** your mother and go watch the Shield Pudge. Don't even think about it.

If Shawshank won then we'd just be complaining about it winning over Pulp Fiction, which might be the best movie of the decade.

But yeah, lol Forrest Gump
