The latest Movie of the Month show is here! It’s been dragged through a river of shit and come out clean(ish) the other side. That’s right, this month is all about The Shawshank Redemption.

Freshly-impounded co-host Richard Kirkham took the lead, and was joined by the film’s champion, Rob, along with Damien and Howard. And before go ahead and dismiss the show off hand as being a full-on love-in and swoon-fest over the film, take a listen, as not everyone involved is a fan of the feature.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the week and a round of the Rotten Tomatoes Catch-Up game.
