This movie is being described as inspiring? To me it just seems morbid, melancholy, sad, and far too long.
Mr Overstreet.. don't be silly. It's not as if people ordinarily absorb the pain of other people [like 'John Coffey' does] now is it?

How could you not believe this movie to be inspiring??? The words the character John Coffey says really make you think about the world. He is very sincere and kind... More than inspiring to me. I love Stephen King for writing this book.
...It must be very difficult for you to show any emotion. That's kind of sad in itself.

Read his review. His negative rating isn't based on the fact that it's a sad movie. I dunno why he threw that in there. It's rotten because it's melodramatic, trite, obvious, cloying, and even worse than Shawshank. Frank Darabont needs to take a hint from John Coffey and electrocute himself.

Do you understand the definition of 'Melodrama', because I don't remember it being a feature of this film at all.

Wait a minute man! You are not allowed to dis this movie. Infant souls see the world as 'me and not me.' That's it. Period. I personally found this movie to be morbid, melancholy, sad, and far too long.
Okay! Now listen, don't you dare disagree with the mob ever again, hear me?!
Oh, yeah, what's up with this Cromwell guy? He made a pact with the devil I suppose. He's in every single movie ever made. Usually as an authority figure. He is well typecast though.
