"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.

In case you haven't heard, the Rapture has been moved up. According to a California evangelical, a massive earthquake will shake the world, sending true believers to the heavens, leaving nonbelievers to watch the world destruction.*
That might sound like bad news (OK, really bad news) but the silver lining in all this is that we get to plan our final hours. So with the pending apocalypse — tonight or on Saturday, as originally scheduled — we ask, What movie would you watch on you last day?
Would it be a lighthearted movie to ease your mind? Or would you pick an apocalyptic movie to prepare you in case you survive Judgment Day?
*Just to put things into context, the same pastor who is predicting the end of the world incorrectly predicted the return of Jesus to Earth in 1994.
ETA: Since The Big Lebowski is currently ranked #1, we wanted to let all the achievers out there know that it's on ReelzChannel this weekend.

Monster movie Cloverfield delivered on all the hype and then some over the weekend, raking in a phenomenal $41 million and trouncing all box office challengers. Second place finisher 27 Dresses grossed an impressive $22.4 million -- a figure possibly inflated moviegoers buying tix for the Katherine Heigl rom-com and then sneaking into sold-out Cloverfield screenings.
Third place The Bucket List grossed a healthy $15.2 million in its second week of wide release, while Juno grabbed fourth place with a $10.3 million take. Rounding out the top five with an $8.1 million tally was National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, the latest offering from pugilistic German director Uwe Boll, grossed a whopping $3.3 million in its first week of release. Way to go Uwe!
