This serie is a very good surprise. I was a little skepticsl about the classic Sci fi topos so classic, this is a no spoiler opinion so, don't worry, but no! The writer, creator and producer @mikaswatkins is quite smart and without deus ex machina (a very rare thing, in my opinion) has created a real new view about sci fi script. The actors fits perfectly with their Characters, the directors are so cool, and the photography is perfect. This show will makes you cry and laugh (sometimes at the same time), scream and insult, and will surprise you, really. Now, well after have see on @youtube_premium all the serie, i can finally sleep. Favourite male character Shun @sen_mitsuji_official #hero#samurai#greatman Lee @adelayoadedayo and Lana @nattenalady The trickster Baum @philipp.christopher is really intetesting a difficult role, but the actor is really good and perfect for the role. Logan @t22felton is quite a complex character, is not simple be arshole and fragile, but yes he can(the accent is so true) and his background is really deep and poetic, Mia (the faboulous actress Fionnula Flanaghan) is such a great strong woman, and the perfomance of these two actors is really full of feelings. Thanks to all. #scifi @origin_series #thriller#actors @paulwsandersonokay #greatactors#diversity#multilanguage#lgbt#freedom#nowalls#nopoliticalcorrectness#empowerment#womenwriters#england#soproud#weneedmoreshowslikethis#drama#deepspace#leaveearth#writerrecommendation#ifyoulike#realscifi
The Shawshank Redemption (1994) "Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes, really. Pressure... and time. That and the big goddamn poster."

Many believe that the IMDb Top 250 list is quite bad and unrealistic. I partially agree. The trouble is that cult classics, that have passed the test of time, are mixed with the latest blockbusters that enjoy enormous but only temporary popularity. Many of these films have a high rating due to strong marketing and internet hype, and will disappear altogether within a few months or maybe a few years, but I think that the positions of the films that have been on the list for more than a decade, with little variation or without any, pretty much reflect their real quality. "The Shawshank Redemption" deserves the first place it holds.
To me, this movie is just perfect. Great camera, masterful directing, a pace that makes two and a half hours simply fly by, top actors and their performances, well-integrated music, and most importantly Darabont's excellent adaptation of the King's story, make this film a timeless masterpiece. This prison story found the perfect balance between drama and humor, sadness and joy, alienation and friendship, malice and empathy, terror and hope. It can be viewed as an interesting adventure with a great plot twist, but also as a metaphor for life in general. "The Shawshank Redemption" was nominated for seven Oscars, it is at or near the top of almost every list of best films of all time, it's Freeman's favorite own film, King's favorite adaptation of his own story, by far the best adaptation of King and, if not the best, certainly one of the best movies of all time. I saw it several times and not once have I been able to write about it right after watching. It simply leaves me speechless every single time.
