I love both films, but if I was locked in a room and had both films there, I'd probably watch Shawshank first. It has more re-watchability for me. Cuckoo was a great film, but I don't know if I'd ever watch it twice in a row, where I know I could watch Shawshank back-to-back.

A few regulars have yet to chime in... Too tough, or just not around. I hope to stop by around Thursday to wrap this baby up, but for now I'll wait for Wes, Jello, Nobody's Fool, YK,fK, Nic, and any others that want their voices heard

I will win in the heart of every pure-of-heart FilmWiser who knows just how wrong it is to vote for a Stephen King adaptation aka The Most Overrated Film Ever. Kinggrl can beat me up physically, but my eternal grace and glory will live on forever.

One Flew. Because Shawshank has been overrated in enough polls already.
