MOVIE OF THE WEEK: The Shawshank Redemption

Yet another masterpiece from the early 90's. Saw this a long time ago and thought I should re-visit it. I am glad I did, as it reminded me how great a film it is. What an amazing script, with such a good flow to it. Keeps you interested from start to finish. The acting was exceptional, such a refreshment from the over-acting that is often prominent in today's dramas. Freeman and Robbins approach their roles with such subtlety and realism that you feel like you are watching true events being played out right before your eyes. No wonder it is ranked #1 on IMDb's Top 250 Movies.


  1. Where are you watching all these movies? Does netflix deliver to SA??

  2. haha..I actually do have a netflix-like service here called pushplay....also, we have this software that connects everyone on the UCT network...so we all share files (movies, tv shows etc)...it takes about 1 minute to download!
