This threads probably been done before..
But anyway..
what's your all time favourite film? Something that you would go back and watch again? Even if it's a strange one. My all time favourite is Shawshank redemption.. I know, I know! I've been asked why because everyone else seems to think it's boring but I honestly love it. I'm going on maternity leave soon and know I'll end up wanting to watch films when I'm bored. Hopefully I can look at this thread when I'm struggling for a film to watch! I'll take your word for it that it's a good film!

I think that anyone who doesn't like Shawshank redemption just hasn't watched it properly! My DP hates it and refuses to watch it with me.

I keep wondering if it's really as good as I think it is. Then I watch it again and it is.
