Episode 77 – The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank RedemptionThis episode focuses on one of the best films of the 1990’s (or any decade): The Shawshank Redemption!  Alee Ellingsburg returns to watch this prison drama that is structured about as well as a movie can be structured.  Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman star in this movie that was one of the first true home video phenomenons.  Tim pretty much takes over this episode because he really loves the film.  You’ll have to forgive him for that.

Our next film will be Bringing Up Baby.
