‘The Shawshank Redemption’, ‘Mallrats’, ‘Oldboy’ and ‘The Godfather’ A.K.A. THE FINALE

I’VE DONE IT! I actually managed to watch 212 films in 7 months! BOOYA!! However, I will not feel like I’ve fully completed this challenge until I type up my so-called ‘reviews’. I now have 43minutes to type all four of today’s movies up. Guess I kind of regret not typing up The Shawshank Redemption when I had the chance [I had a nap instead >.<]

Anyways, 3 of these films were amazing, guess which one wasn’t so *eye roll, glares at TheFilmFan* [lol joking, by the way]. Now, seeing as time is short and I now have 41 minutes left, these reviews might be short, brief, bullet points and I may miss some key points, especially in Shawshank, Oldboy and Godfather. At least this time I have a genuine excuse for my crappy reviews! 40 minutes to go!

Dr. Strangelove Or; How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

I really loved this film! Its done so brilliantly well; the comedy is so subtle and it’s the kind that waits for the audience to laugh. Its not “look here’s a joke!”, its “and we’re talking very seriously here and did we just say that? Yes, we did just say that, lets move on.”

The plot of this movie is still relevant today with that war thing in the Middle East [I’m joking, of course, I know what’s going on there, sarcasm/irony don’t get across well on the internet and therefore gets lost because you’ve now forgotten what was sarcastic/ironic because I’ve had to explain myself.] And, to be honest, I think there’s a good chance that a USAF General would send a ‘H Bomb’ to Russia just so there can be a war and distract himself from his paranoia and sexual dysfunction.
