Movies We Love

Kottke.org had a couple of posts about The Princess Bride and The Shawshank Redemption.

Actor Carey Elwes, who played the Dread Pirate Roberts, will have a book out this month regarding his experience filming the movie.

Vanity Fair has an article on how The Shawshank Redemption became such a success even though it did not do well in the theaters.

It’s funny how I never saw either of these films in the theater, never read the books, and yet they both are on my list of favorite movies of all time. I don’t even remember when I first watched them but when they are on TV, I’ll always make time to watch them. I’ve made sure that I bought them on iTunes so I can watch them whenever I like.
