I was disappointed that “Eastside High” was not among his top 5 movies. Most inner-city and neighborhood schools today still remind you of Eastside High, where a Morgan Freeman touch is needed to turn the schools around. I am just disappointed that the choices speak volumes of public regard for the outcomes at inner-city schools.
All excellent movies, but you could have added, Along Came a Spider, outstanding movie, one of the best actors of our time. Says I.
“Lean on Me” (1989) should definitely have been included in the list. ♥
Lean on Me
Driving Miss Daisy
All great movies. Who did this poll?
I remember the movie Suddie and Simpson. My most favorite was “Lean on Me”.
Hands down my favorite movie that stole the Oscar from Morgan was Driving Miss Daisy! Jessica Tandy portrayed an excellent character, but Morgan played a perfect southern character. I truly believe Morgan did not receive his Oscar because those who voted were not familiar with the accuracy of his portrayal. I grew up in the south and witnessed the black dialect and humility expressed by Morgan. I will always believe he was robbed just because of the lack of experience of the voters.
Also, in the list should be ‘Hard Rain’ and the ‘Contract’…Morgan Freeman with a twist…
Glory definitely should have been on this list.
