Top 10 lists are very subjective so rather than justify my rankings I offer you a video snippet and trivia for each one. Credits are giving to the YouTube video owners on their channels upon playing each and the trivia questions and answers come from IMDB.com.

I have been told (many times) that I really need to write a book about my life. The past 50+ years have been an exciting ride, and these days I find myself with a great many passions. However, I feel that this website is a much more personal way with which to share my musings, stories and commentary.

  1. Wow, that’s quite a list of movies, Mike. He is iconic. His voice is so distinctive. Was he in Shawshank Redemption? That movie Seven was so incredibly disturbing and well done. All of these are great! I would love to watch Driving Miss Daisy again.

    • Oh yes on his voice and my webmaster/friend and I were talking after he read this other night. He said two voices would be the most soothing to listen to; Freeman and James Earl Jones. Se7en is one of my alltime fav movies and yes he was in Shawshank Redemption. That was a HUGE major whiff on my part, Lisa!! *forehead slap*

  2. Oooo this is tough because he’s done so many good ones! I loved him in Red, Last Vegas and Wanted (he was SO bad). Glory and, as weird as they were, I liked him in Oblivion and Nurse Betty. These Top 10’s are always so much fun. They remind us of movies we haven’t seen in a long time – and go dig out the DVDs and watch them again!

    • Thank you for the compliment and you named off so many good ones as well! What a gifted actor huh, Nan? I used to always go buy movies now I’m learning to find them to rent on tv or borrow from some of movie collector friends! 🙂

  3. Joe and I both love Morgan Freeman. I have missed some of these! Will have to catch up! Too hard to pick a favorite! But I will share that I loved The Bucket List and watched it some time between Jan and May of 2018 when my Daddy was dying of pancreatic cancer. People could not believe that I would watch it during that time. Daddy did not chose to go do bucket list things like them, but he did chose not to try any type of treatment. He said he wanted to be as alert and well as possible for as long as possible without being sick from treatments. What he wanted was to spend time with family and friends and it was a party at the house every weekend til the end! So the movie made me happy knowing that Daddy was going out his way!!

    • Oh my gosh thank you for sharing that incredibly candid, emotional story of your Daddy, Rosita. That definitely got my eyes welled up and I love that he choose that path for his happiness and enjoyment! So, I can understand you watching that movie. I send you my belated condolences and best wishes and thoughts always!

  4. **Driving Miss Daisy** !!!

    This has to be my all time FAVE)))!!! xxx

  5. Oh man, Along came a spider was one of my favorites as a kid. I’m not much into suspense movies but I saw it and got hooked!
