"Get busy living, or get busy dying."
With his velvety smooth voice, wise eyes and confident, reassuring demeanor, Morgan Freeman has become one of the most popular and respected actors working today, imbuing any movie he appears in with class and gravitas. Freeman struggled to find steady work as an actor for decades before his breakout performance in the 1987 movie Street Smart earned him an Academy Award nomination, but he has appeared in one or more movies every year since then, save for 1999. This year will be one of his most prolific yet, with major roles in four movies — Oblivion, Now You See Me, Olympus Has Fallen and Last Vegas. In his career, he's played a pimp, a principal, a prisoner, a president, a procurer of Bat-gadgets and even God, but what is his best movie role? Help us rank the movies of Morgan Freeman.

"My fellow Americans. This will be the last time I address you."
Today’s the day! The last day of the 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar has arrived.
What does that mean to you? Well, for the vast majority of you, not a whole lot. That is, unless you actually use the calendar — more commoly referred to as the Mayan calendar — for more than decoration, in which case you'll have to turn the giant stone dials back and start all over again at Day One, Year One. However, for the small minority of doomsday alarmists among you, today is the last day of the world as we know it. Hope you didn’t have big plans for the weekend!
In the spirit of our (possibly) imminent destruction, help us choose the best movies about the end of the world and the terrifying new world that continues on after the apocalypse.

From action heroes to stand-up comedians and even a former porn star and professional wrestler, the movies have given us some of the most unique presidents in (fictional) history.
