And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.
So here is #19 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:
The Green Mile (1999)
I'm pretty sure I made this comment when I reviewed Saving Private Ryan but I'll repeat it again. I love Tom Hanks. This was also the breakout movie for Michael Clarke Duncan, another actor I really admire.
The story is about a simple innocent black man, John Coffey, who is found guilty of raping and murdering two little girls. He is sentenced to death. Coffey has a profound effect on the guards on death row, especially when they learn of his special gift which is a blessing to others and a curse to him.
This movie is so moving that I dare you not to cry.
