TCP: The Green Mile

I missed last week’s topic and I am so glad that I made it this week. This week’s theme is about movies from a book. And because I love Tom Hanks, my entry would be The Green Mile.


Director Frank Darabont, who made an acclaimed feature film debut with The Shawshank Redemption (1994), based on a Stephen King novel set in a prison, returns for a second feature, based on King's 1996 serialized novel set in a prison. In 1935, inmates at the Cold Mountain Correctional Facility call Death Row "The Green Mile" because of the dark green linoleum that tiles the floor. Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is the head guard on the Green Mile when a new inmate is brought into his custody: John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), convicted of the sadistic murder of two young girls. Despite his size and the fearsome crimes for which he's serving time, Coffey seems to be a kind and well-mannered person who behaves more like an innocent child than a hardened criminal. Soon Edgecomb and two of his fellow guards, Howell (David Morse) and Stanton Barry Pepper), notice something odd about Coffey: he's able to perform what seem to be miracles of healing among his fellow inmates, leading them to wonder just what sort of person he could be, and if he could have committed the crimes with which he was charged. The Green Mile also stars James Cromwell as the warden; Michael Jeter, Sam Rockwell, and Graham Greene as inmates awaiting dates with the electric chair; and Harry Dean Stanton as a clever trustee.

I loved this movie and if you haven’t seen this, it’s highly recommended.

Sunday Lunch at Burger King

After church we went to Burger King to have lunch. We don’t do this very often but this Sunday we did it. The in-laws wanted to go to BK, so as the kids, so there we went.


My Dollar menu Whopper Jr with cheese, everything on it.


100_3107 Rodney had double Cheeseburger, Roan had Chicken tenders


100_3109 My in-laws with Dan and Wrozlie on the other table.


100_3110 My order of Oreo BK Sundae Shake, which didn’t taste that great. I prefer Chocolate Sundae.


100_3111 My Oreo Sundae Shake, Rodney’s Chocolate Shake and Roan’s Coke Icee.

Hope to go to Chinese Buffet next Sunday for Mother’s Day after church.

Have a great day to all!
