Day 14: If you were only allowed to watch one movie for the rest of your life, what movie would it be and why?

That would be The Shawshank Redemption. This is a very touching drama about betrayal, friendship, payback and perseverance. It is based on Stephen King’s book Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. Dila wrote a review about this book in Day 7 challenge. And I published a short review about this during the 30 day movie challenge in November 2014.

The story has so many layers it never bores me. The acting is impeccable. I really love this movie. Every time I watch it to the end, when Red and Andy are reunited in Zihuatanejo, it is so satisfying. Both of them deserve the life they have dreamt of during their time in prison.

The Shawshank Redemption shows that not all convicts in prison are bad people. Mean people can show remorse and become better too.

If you haven’t seen this movie, do it. I can say it is one of the masterpieces in the cinema history.

  1. Braveheart. Sure, it might be melodramatic in parts, etc., but I love it, there’s so much to it. The direction is skillful and surprisingly efficient for such a big production. The story is engaging. The cinematography is gorgeous, especially taking advantage of the ancient Celtic landscape. The battle scenes are thrilling. The pacing, too, is very good for such a long film. Sure, it may not be historically accurate and some of the dialogue may be corny, but it gets me every time.

  2. Aku sampai download film ini mbak, karena penasaran. Ok weekend ini akan aku tonton… Banyak yang bilang ini film emang bagus banget yaa..

  3. Wah bener banget, aku udah tonton bolak balik teteeep aja nontonnya konsen hehehe. Aku juga kalo suka sama film suka cari tau latar belakang pmbuatan filmnya. Kaya waktu Andy keluar dari Shawshank lewat saluran pembuangan kotoran, pas syuting pake coklat.. atau adegan andy sama red di lapangan sambil main baseball ternyata syutingnya 17jam! :’)). Menariiikkkk
