Director Frank Darabont's follow-up to "The Shawshank Redemption" in 1994, "The Green Mile" is another Stephen King-adapted, prison-set, period melodrama. Except, this time there's circus mice!

Mike and Brian discuss the film's stance on the death penalty, debate its level of fun on the "Popcorn-O-Meter," explore its place among the year's other Academy Award/Best Picture nominees, and decide whether to keep it or kick it from the year's top five.
