That's really tough.


Umm....


I'm leaning towards Shawshank Redemption. Both are tremendous achievements in American cinema. Great flicks.

Come on, this is impossible!   
I suppose I'll go with Shawshank; I cried more during that one.

My two favorite movies!
I say Shawshank, but both are damn good movies.

Tim Robbins does kick ass! He's directing a stage play of George Orwell's 1984 at Purdue on Friday and Saturday, and I'm really excited to see it.
