Came in here to mention Bad Boys (Sean Penn version), glad you did. Shawshank and A Prophet are also great movies.

This is a movie that entirely flew under the radar. Sheet is actually a very good film. Anyone else seen this?



... and no doubt, American History X. All-time cult classic. Doesn't get much better.

Yep. Surprisingly decent, especially for a JCVD straight to DVD film. Was expecting it to be the usual Van Damme is a badass who kicks all their asses in prison movie, but I was glad to see he actually didn't use his martial art stuff at all and just played it as if he'd been turned into a brutal street fighter.

Anyway, my list would be something like

1. Cool Hand Luke
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. American History X

I dunno why I found parts of that so funny.

Does Blood n Bone count? It starts in prison and has prison flashbacks. I also like Half Past Dead with Segal (terrible acting as usual) and Ja Rule and Shawshank
