See, that is reasonable to me. I can see boredom for Godfather if someone isn't feeling it. I think Shawshank is very good - mainly because it was so unexpected. I agree with you about the LOTR films, though. First one I was like "Cool!" 2nd one I was like "nothing really happened" and the third one my wife and I could barely stop ourselves from walking out. Overload of effects, and 15 endings just made me check out. Well-crafted films, for sure, and I absolutely get the appeal... just not my cup of tea.
