The Good, the Bad and the Ugly vs. The Shawshank Redemption



I can't believe nobody has commented on this yet. Good, Bad & The Ugly is my all time favorite western while Shawshank is my all time favorite prison movie. I gotta go with Eastwood on this one though, it's a slightly better film.

Well, I don't see Shawshank as a masterpiece like everyone else. But there is something about it that compels me to revisit it from time to time. So although GBU is the more influential film, I'll take TSR here.

Welcome to Shawshank Tuco.

Welcome to an unmarked grave, Dufresne.


Shawshank is great, but overrated where as The Good The Bad and The Ugly deserves its praise. TGTBATU wins.

Two of the greatest films ever, I don't know

Shawshank in an absolute blow out....and I LOVE TGTBATU.....

Both build up to great endings but the atmosphere generated in GBU just edges it for me.

Shawshank Redemption is superior


This is a classic battle. Shawshank. LIttle bit better movie overall.

After rewatch I take back what I said about Shawshank. These are arguably two of the greatest films of all time, but I'm still going with Leone.

This one's not close. Sure, GBU was the best western I've ever seen... but it's Shawshank!

Shawshank for me

Awesome showdown as both films have diehard fans that are very adamant about their preferences. I'm no different. I stand by GBU in this contest. Shawshank is a fine movie, but GBU is just better.

Shawshank is perfect but GBU is my favorite.

Both films have phenomenal finales and are absolute classics. I'll have to side with Shawshank

Get busy diggin' or get busy dyin'.

TGTBATU is the only pick here.

kind of cinema against heart

When you have to shoot... shoot! Don't talk.

The Shawshank Redemption is a better film than The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I'm gonna write the name of the best movie on the bottom of this stone....




The Shawshank Redemption

Shawshank with ease

GBU Is hard to rewatch, whereas Shawshank is timeless

Shawshank stomps

Shawshank takes the nod.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is more entertaining to me personally.

The good the bad and the ugly is better and greater in many kind of ways in my opinion. Easy choise. I Love it. Truly the best western film in history and takes the spotlight here

Rather watch a BAD AZZ Western movie than a prison movie. EASTWOOD is too strong and the Civil WAR backdrop too legendary TGTBTU wins !! very close
