Seriously though,it's another I never tire of watching,and is deserving of it's own thread....
Plus it stars a certain Corey, who also features in a girly vampire movie made in 1987, which is widely believed to be the prequel to Twilight.

Yeah,ahem.....


It's one of those films in which the long running time flies by.
Sheer class.

Sorry Reaps but I couldn't let that one slide...

Yep, completely agree with you mate. You fail to notice the long running time as it's such an absorbing film.

Great film, I'll be buying the BD at some point soon.

The FAMILY GUY version is good too.

Good episode that, Pete.

The 'Fat drink of water' line always makes me laugh.

Thanks for your input guys. Will definitely pick up that digibook. Will have to wait for next pay day though cos I've spent too much already this month, not good.

Brilliant film and most definitely my favourite prison movie

although I also like Escape from Alcatraz which is sadly still missing on blu-ray and Tom Sellecks An Innocent Man which has just had its HD release and looks great.

Sweeeeeeeeet! I held off buying it so I could get in a standard case.

Yo dudes, Don't talk shit about Corey or The Lost Boys.
It's a great film and he's an awesome dude!

I'm not a huge fan as I really like the film and think it is a special piece of filmmaking but I'm not sure whether I 'love it' and, like some people, watch it every other week (if not more frequently). In fact, I can't remember the last time I saw it!

However, I would consider buying the medibook and try and get into the film more than I have previously. It's odd, as I really like Shawshank but don't really care for The Green Mile, which many people consider fit together perfectly.

I much prefer Shawshank to The Green Mile, but like both films immensely.

I've recently picked up the Warner US Mediabook, and it is a very nice release.

I'll probably do likewise - where did you buy yours from?
