    The Shawshank Redemption

  1. Offline

    Movie Madness is an event pitting 64 films against each other in a knockout tournament style where only one will triumph (to find out more, click here). This round... The Shawshank Redemption vs Inception. Who will progress to the next round? You decide.

    The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
    Perhaps the most famous cinematic disappointment ever, The Shawshank Redemption made up for it's poor box office with a second wind on home release based almost solely on word of mouth, catapulting it to the top of many people's film lists. Spanning decades, the film looks at life in prison and a blossoming friendship between the prison's fixer and a man convinced of his own innocence.

    Inception (2010)
    Christopher Nolan's big budget blockbuster showed the world (and especially Hollywood studios) that expensive films could credit their audiences with intelligence and still turn a handsome profit. Dealing in dreams with large portions of the film taking place in different characters' subconscious, Nolan takes a complicated story and expresses it in a way that makes it feel wonderfully intuitive.
