I love Shawshank too. The movie was at least as good as the book.

I remember seeing that years before LotR was out.

In Peter Jackson's work you can clearly see the influence of Monty Python: Wherever they have to chop off limbs, and the bad guy still won't die, whether it is a black knight, a zombie, or an orc.
