Ok, it happened again. I know, I know, the Shawshank Redemption is a good movie. It’s well done, interesting, good acting, etc. But if I hear another person state “I don’t know, it’s probably in my top 5”, I’m going to puke. It is officially now cliche to put this movie in your top 5…even if it legitimately belongs there. On Homer’s ESPN radio show in Milwaukee, Homer interviewed Braden Looper, the Brewers newest signee. When Homer asked for his favorite movies, I cringed and I said to myself “100% chance he’ll say Shawshank”. Sure enough, he said Shawshank immediately and because Homer and his sidekick also put that movie in their respective top 5s (of course) they anoited Looper their new movie critic going forward.
