A Movie Ranking: Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is one of Hollywood’s most prolific actors and I thought it would be fun to highlight him for this week’s Movie Ranking. Enjoy! 

12. Alpha

Kodi Smit-McPhee in Alpha (2018)

I didn’t even know Morgan Freeman narrated this movie.

11. Oblivion

Tom Cruise in Oblivion (2013)

To be fair, I haven’t seen this movie all the way through but I did watch the second half of the film and I wasn’t impressed.

10. Lucy

Scarlett Johansson in Lucy (2014)

It was a cool concept–what would happen if a human activated 100% of their brain, but the last third of the film was ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.

9. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Richard E. Grant, Eugenio Derbez, Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Misty Copeland, and Jayden Fowora-Knight in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)

This isn’t the greatest Disney movie I’ve ever seen but it’s not bad either!

8. War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds (2005)

Apparently, Morgan Freeman narrated this movie too. Interesting.

7. Bruce Almighty

Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty (2003)

This movie surprised me with its humor. I mean, anything with Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell is bound to have at least one riotous moment that’ll leave you rolling on the floor laughing.

6. The Lego Movie

Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Channing Tatum, Alison Brie, and Jonah Hill in The Lego Movie (2014)

Oh my goodness, The Lego Movie is one of those movies that absolutely surprise you. It could’ve been your classic decent children’s movie but it turned out to be one of those animated children’s movies that leave you beaming with joy and laughing hysterically.

5. The Dark Knight Rises

Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Matthew Modine, Anne Hathaway, Alon Aboutboul, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Daniel Sunjata in The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

This isn’t a bad movie but it isn’t great either.

4. Along Came a Spider

Along Came a Spider (2001)

I’ve only seen this movie once several years ago but I was riveted from beginning to end. That’s why it’s so high on this list.

3. Batman Begins

Christian Bale and Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins (2005)

This movie blew Batman (1989) out of the water with a gritty and darker style of storytelling that left plenty to be desired.

2. Glory

Glory (1989)

Emotional, riveting, beautifully-made, beautifully-directed, oh my gosh, this movie is BEAUTIFUL! 😭😭😭

1. The Dark Knight

Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger, Sarah Jayne Dunn, Melinda McGraw, and Jennifer Knox in The Dark Knight (2008)

This movie is so, so, so GOOD! I mean, absolutely fantastic!
