1. Green mile
2. Shawshank redemption
3. American History X
1. Escape From Alcatraz
2. Bad Boys
3. The Shawshank Redemption
American History X was good but I really don't consider it a prison movie
Bad Boys should be on the list.
I'd probably have Lock Up somewhere in my top few even though it's not among the options.
Probably Lock Up, Escape from Alcatraz and The Shawshank Redemption.
Animal Factory, Felon, Last Light and The Man Who Broke 1000 Chains are a few more decent ones that aren't among the options. And The Count of Monte Cristo.
I'd have One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest as #1 if it qualifies.
Prison Song isn't on here? Low budget but...
Animal Factory was really good
Edward Furlong got the jackpot.
Shutter Island isn't a movie i really think about much, but whenever it's mentioned i remember how good it was.
Honorable mention: Die Hard
Law Abiding Citizen
Shot caller because it's a sobering reality for you. One fuck up and you could be in deep shit. And prison isn't anything to be fucked with depending on where your sent. If you don't join something your alone.
When were they ever in prison there?
There's a different one from the 80s with Sean Penn. It was decent.
Yeah right dude, fuckin bullshit
You guys havent even seen COOL HAND LUKE cuz if ou had it would have more than MY ONE VOTE
Sorry not the Martin Lawernce/Will Smith one this one:
And if The Great Escape is in the poll, that opens the door for all kinds of other POW movies. Bridge on the River Kwai, Rescue Dawn, The Hanoi Hilton...
Cool Hand Luke
Best post you've ever made.
