Ok,I have read everyones posts and I knew that I would be in a huge minority here. My friends think me, a lover of movies, should adore this film, but I can't stand it. THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION I know, I know, pick your jaw off the floor. I have tried to like this film, however, I just find this film (and short story for that matter) completely boring. There are others, but most have been mentioned before.
