The Shawshank Redemption Deleted Scenes You've Likely Never Seen

It's hard to channel surf and not stop to watch at least a little bit of "The Shawshank Redemption" when it's on TV. The film is almost always on somewhere, haunting cable channels and popping up for every holiday weekend programming block. Even though the film started as a flop, it's now one of the most beloved films of all time. The film, based on the novella by Stephen King, stars Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins as iconic friends Red and Andy, who are brought together by their murder raps to s...

Why The Shawshank Redemption Was A Box Office Flop, According To Morgan Freeman

You'd be hard-pressed to find a cinephile without a tried-and-true pick for the Best Film Ever Made. For some it's "The Godfather" or "Pulp Fiction," a must-see classic like "Citizen Kane" or a deep cut from the oeuvre of Stanley Kubrick. But one film that's cemented itself above them all — at least according to IMDb — is "The Shawshank Redemption."Today, "The Shawshank Redemption" has become synonymous with cinematic greatness, even to those who've yet to see the film. The film holds the highes...

Movies Like The Truman Show You Should Definitely Watch

"The Truman Show" is one of the most unique films of the '90s. While the film is witty and deeply satirical of the American public's obsession with television and celebrity, it also explores dark psychological themes of paranoia, neglect, and self-sacrifice. The film's 1998 release came at the height of Jim Carrey's career, as he had appeared in a series of comedy hits that made him one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. With "The Truman Show," Carrey proved that he had a dramatic side as well, ...

Movies Like Fight Club That Are Definitely Worth Watching

7 Disneyland rides made into movies, and 7 more possible projects

While many Disneyland attractions are based on films, a few have made the journey in the opposite direction — starting as theme park rides that became major motion pictures. The upcoming “Jungle Cruise” is the latest entry in Disney’s ever-growing catalog of attempts to turn theme park attractions into film franchises — with most of them until recently becoming fabulous flops rather than breakout hits. The new “Jungle Cruise” debuting Friday, July 30 will bring the classic 1955 Disneyland ride t...

What Bull Durham Taught Me About Business Success

I watched Bull Durham (again) last night. A great movie if you haven’t seen it. Though I must admit, I’m not much of a baseball fan. I find it to be about as exciting to watch as CSPAN. But when it comes to sports movies , baseball takes the cake. Think Moneyball, The Bad News Bears, Major League (shut up Dorn), The Natural, A League of Their Own, Field of Dreams, and, of course, Bull Durham, just to name a few. Anyway, as I said, I was watching Bull Durham last night. It’s a romantic comedy ab...

The Shawshank Redemption may be a beloved drama that you’ll watch every single time it’s playing on AMC, TNT or whatever cable channel is playing it on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
