George A.

When you talk about the greatest films of all time you have to mention The Shawshank Redemption. This film is at the top of IMDB’s top 250 list, ranking in at number one above films like The Dark Knight and the all time classic The Godfather. This movie is so appealing in so many ways, in my opinion it is ranked number one because of the fact that it hits the Christian aspect, has a character you can feel for and of course has a satisfying ending.
