I just finished watching The Shawshank Redemption online for the first time. The internet has transformed the way movies are seen and what one sees in a movie now depends on what one wants to see. What one watches is therefore based on personal taste, preferences and interests?
I find a lot of films to be boring and stop-gap because I am not interested in seeing them and thus do not bother to see the movie that I have seen and let's face it, the last thing you want to do is sit through a film that you don't enjoy watching, unless you like being a lazy bum and watch a movie that you don't enjoy the experience of. But here, the media is a very important element in deciding what we like and what we don't like to watch.
My wife and I were talking about this issue recently and she was very frustrated at the fact that I have watched several of her favorite movies online but she was still looking forward to my movies that I want to get online. As a result, we gave up watching together and now we watch movies on our own and that's the only thing that I can say that has not changed.
Now I got a chance to check out the movie and I must say, I am very happy to say that it is a very good flick and I found out that this is the third installment of the Shawshank Redemption TV Series. I remember watching the TV Series when it first came out and being hooked to it. In the years since, I have seen the Movie a couple of times and am happy to say that I agree with my wife that this movie is very good and just as good as the TV Series. The last time I saw the Movie, I was actually enjoying myself and I did laugh out loud every time there was a comedy moment in the movie.
This is the first time that I have seen the Movie on the Internet and it looks like it is going to be very similar to watching a motion picture. Of course I had been looking forward to see it online and my friends who have seen the Movie before were having a lot of fun and we had a good time watching it online.
The very first time I saw The Shawshank Redemption, I loved it and have been craving to see it since then. When the film came out, I was afraid that I might not like it and I would end up hating it because I am used to watching movies the way that I watch television, through a computer and screen. But even though I love to watch movies through my computer, I would always prefer to watch movies the way they were meant to be seen, in the theater.
Some of my friends think that they hate the movie, the plot, the acting or anything else and yet I still enjoyed it so much. I loved every scene in the movie and I even like the fact that we got to see Andy Dufresne (Red) to shed some more light on the relationship between Andy and Red. I also liked the way that it had a beginning, middle and an end and I do hope that the TV Series would come out sometime soon.
While I am not sure when the TV Series will come out, I know that I will watch it again whenever it comes out and I always want to make sure that I watch the movies first and see if I enjoyed them as much as I did the TV Series. I always appreciate any movies that are made especially for the fans of the TV Series. It makes me glad that it has given me a chance to see a new angle to the story and to witness some new scenes of the Shawshank Redemption, while I am still recovering from my trauma from seeing it online.
