Ron Swanson: Therapist.
Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Our next meeting will be a very special one, as we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of Frank Darabont’s modern classic The Shawshank Redemption on its premiere day anniversary, September 23rd.
Since 2008, Shawshank has sat at #1 on the Internet Movie Database’s Top 250 list, surpassing long-time king The Godfather. It is #72 on AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Movies list. It ranked #4 on Empire’s list of the 500 Greatest Movies of All-Time, and was their #1 movie of the ’90s. It currently sits at 91% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer.
Our admin, Chris, ranks the film as both a top five favorite as well as one of the top five greatest movies of all-time. He also rates it as “easily the best adaptation of Stephen King’s work”.

I want to play all these games.
Sci-FI NES Games from a Parallel Dimension
We were unfortunate enough to live through such horrible movie-licensed games like Robocop, Total Recall, and E.T. (or as we usually refer to it: That Game Which Shall Not Be Named), but perhaps somewhere in an alternate timeline where good things happened and people knew how to make good movie-based vidya gaemz, we could have had such instant classics like “They Live!” (with real 3D glasses action? Give me that) and MST3K (do you play the movie they’re watching, or just Press A to quip?)
On Saturday, October 25th, we will be having another movie marathon! We will be celebrating Halloween a few days early and showing Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy!
More details to come soon, including details on a potential pre-marathon treat!
