Everything Wrong With The Shawshank Redemption In 20 Minutes Or Less
The Shawshank Redemption is one of the greatest movies of all time!
Listen, we don't sin movies because we hate movies, you should know this by now. We sin movies because it's fun, and it's just as much fun to sin awesome movies as it is to sin terrible ones. Have an apple; take life less seriously.
Thursday: Space thriller sins.
Remember, no movie is without sin. Which movie's sins should we count next?

    Everybody is complaining about the number of times it took to crack open the pipe. WHY IS NO ONE MENTIONING THAT when he was done there was only enough room for him to look in the pipe- how did he create the hole large enough for him to fit his entire body through?!

    Ok you had me all the way till you got to 18:49. Yes, technically you can go to your own cell bathroom whenever you want, but if you are in a prison work station in or in the yard there is an element of control. Why, so if a poisoner does not have has to ask then he is seen as having "choice" which leads to independence, which leads to prisoners literally taking over the prison. On a side note: Have you ever asked why students from high school who transition to college you can automatically tell who is an incoming freshman (said the freshman in a junior class when he raises his hand "can I go to the bathroom"). That deserves at least two sins off.

    It felt like for all but a handful of sins, it pained you to have to assign sins to this movie. And, I thing we all agree, that you were dutiful in making this video, even though we were all with you knowing it was bullsh*t.

    Here's a sin it took me about twenty viewings to notice: where did Red get his speech patterns from? He's very erudite, even poetic at times. He's a convicted murderer who was sent to prison at the age of twenty, who describes himself at the time as a "young, stupid kid," which implies he's not well-educated. So, what gives?

  • Chris Tatnall
    Chris Tatnall

    LOVE this movie, however if we are going to nitpik, the one that always bothered me was that "Andy visited nearly a dozen banks in the Portland area that morning" ... even if you had a car and had preplanned your route perfectly, I can't imagine closing all your accounts in that many banks in a day, let alone while being hunted by the police, and with the warden suspecting that he'd be going after the loot...

  • lowell mayfield
    lowell mayfield

    Also, in the scene when Red was skipping parole, he says something like "For the second time in my life I committed a crime: parole violation...", however, throughout his prison career he was smuggling booze and "bags of reefer" into a maximum security state prison, which is almost certainly a career's worth of felonies, once you pile them all together.

    I was once at a Dodger/Giants game at Dodger Stadium and the guy talking two seats left of me sounded so familiar. I finally leaned forward, pointed at him and gave him that, "Don't I know you?" look. He said something like, "Yeah, it's me." And that just confused me more. After a few minutes later it finally it hit me, "Clancy Brown." (Capt Hadley from Shawshank) I bought him and his friend a beer and said, "I'm sorry about that, I thought I might have known you from work or something." (Residents of LA generally leave the celebs alone. It's douche move to stare at the celebs.) He was totally cool about it. I think he bought the 3rd round and he couldn't have been nicer. He gave me 5 innings of shit for being a Giants fan.

    I feel like if the CinemaSins guy was a lawyer. Nobody would ever get convicted of anything.

  • Hyoukikyo

    I think the warden kept the books so he could use it as another publicity stunt. He would have loved talking about how he allowed it and even made it so that bibles could be added or some shit.

    What do you mean where are we great britain about the spelling mistake we came up with the language, it was you yanks that ruined it.

  • TheRiddick27

    I disagree with the 'Do you trust your wife' scene apparently not making any sense. It's clear Andy Dufresne doesn't interact well with people in the beginning. Thus making him seem cold & aloof. Autistic, possibly.

  • Bloofishy

    I know this isn’t meant to be taken seriously, but in multiple videos you have laughed at or downplayed religion, acting like it is a joke. Your videos are great, but I don’t think anyone appreciates their religion being a talking point or a negative in a movie. What he said about blasphemy is more than respectable, and I truly believe that I would do the same. God bless you!

    • i6s1

      No, it's not respectable at all, it's despicable. A person's religious views are their own choice. Nobody has the right to impose their religious rules on others using the power of their position. I don't have personal or religious rules against blasphemy, nobody has any right to demand that I follow their religious edicts. Having said that, in the US at the time, it was common for people in positions of power to coerce others into following religious rules, so the scene absolutely does belong in the film.

  • Pokerface1337

    I have been watching this "everything wrong with Movie X" for quite some time now and to be honest... this movie deserves to be left alone. Same goes for other Stephen Kings Adaptations. This is sacred ground. Also, Clancy Brown is a brilliant actor and I LOVE the way he portraits the crooked / evil characters in movies.

    Being too literal than using intellect to understand the basic context of the narration which most understand makes you an absolute simpleton. You're entitled to your opinions of course however understand it's a movie based off a book and nit picking is usually reserved for nit pickers with no original creative imagination with a self loathing insecure personality. My advice is to remove that chip off your shoulder and try some positive glass is full mentality so you may live a full healthy productive life and sit down shut up and enjoy lifes simple pleasures like The Shawshank Redemption. Ps what movies did you enjoy? Bamm

    18:35 These days, it's notorious within prisons (as in between actual prisoners) that those who show the least interest in parole, who put the lowest amount of effort in, tend to be the ones who get approved. It's fucked up, it's contradictory, and it's infuriating. But it's the way of things.


    I don't see any mistakes in this film Are you a director? So why comment on it, just make your film Yoo and prove you can make it better than this

  • Mephostopheles

    2:21 He’s heavily Christian, and the FIRST COMMANDMENT is not “Thou shalt not kill” or “Thou shalt not steal,” it’s “Thou shalt not have strange gods before me,” followed closely by taking the lord’s name in vain and all that. The first thing they establish is that obeying the religion is the most primary rule, above all else. Even if you refrain from theft or murder, if you aren’t respectful of God, you’ve failed. So can you really say you’re surprised? (By the way, the first commandment actually refers to the fact that the society of the Middle East, including the Hebrews, was henotheistic. Everyone essentially believed each other’s gods were real, but everyone had their own dedicated gods. This is why the Hebrews are “God’s chosen people,” and why the first commandment tells them not to have “strange gods” before him. It’s not telling them to not believe in other gods, it’s telling them not to _worship_ any of those other gods. It also explains why they’re so quick to start worshipping the golden cow.

    You missed one. The warden filled every chamber of his gun to make the audience think he was getting ready for a gunfight, but then he just turns the gun around and shoots himself. If he was going to shoot himself then why fill up every chamber?

  • Eric Rosen
    Eric Rosen

    10:00 At least when we do our taxes, we sit with the accountant for maybe 15 minutes where he gets what he needs and all of the real work happens after we leave. And that involves at least a few minutes of niceties that presumably don't go on in the prison setting. At this likely level of play, their better players are pitchers who can also field a couple of different positions while also being good hitters, so I'd guess they likely have 15 or fewer players on a team. So for in-person time, I'd guess 3-4 hours total would cover it. And this can be split up into before and after the game, so two batches of ~1.5-2 hours. And assuming this is all happening reasonably near the field, players not starting the game and players who get subbed out could step away and put in their 15 minutes during the game. Adjusting for that, it could easily be the game time plus 1-1.5 hours on each end?

    I always thought Red got his parole because the panel of judges changed, not because he changed his response about feeling reformed.

  • GIL

    When my husband and I heard the phrase " pinch a loaf" we laughed so hard! We never heard it before. Years later I still laugh just remembering that moment we shared watching the movie together. We've been divorced for years but we have a few fond memories we keep.
