Yeah, Shawshank is widely considered his magnum opus.
But I'm sure I'll hear plenty of his other films mentioned too, hopefully some I've never heard of before. It's a treasure trove of Morgan Freeman.
That man has never been in a movie I didn't like.
Thick as Thieves/The Code is my LEAST favorite Morgan Freeman movie.
I like all the other movies of his, or at least those I've watched.
Bitte meine beliebte Nazi mods, keine bannerino, weil ich auch ein Nazi Scwein bin! Danke schön
I suppose the Shawshank Redemption. Now I like Morgan Freeman, but every one of his roles is pretty much just Morgan Freeman playing Morgan Freeman in another outfit.

I liked that movie
had dead babys and a guy with a knife strap on fucking a woman to death
how can you not like that?
The Shawshank Redemption, (Also, I love the fact that the movie was first a short story by my favorite author, Stephen King!) Seven was great. I also really like the new Batman movies, but those aren't really Morgan Freeman driven vehicles. Um, Bruce Almighty was funny. Lucky Number Slevin had a good role for him.
People also forget that he was in The Unforgiven, possibly the best western ever.
Oh, and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Wow, this man has seriously best in some of my favorite movies ever.

Hold your horses. Nurse Betty was a bomb, and Amistad was boring.
Shawshank is a great film, but he only got nominated for Best Actor for that one. He lost out to Tom Hanks for Forrest Gump, by the way.
I also like Invictus, where he plays Nelson Mandella, plus the Alex Cross Films, Kiss the Girls and Along Came A Spider. And who can forget his supporting performance alongside Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow in Se7en? The guy truly is a fantastic actor.
But his best role has to be in a comedy - RED
That's a tough decision. The guy has been in many great films.
If I had to choose I'd go for either Se7en or The Dark Knight. I like The Dark Knight better, but he had a much more prominent role in Se7en.
I also like Unforgiven, The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby and the rest of the Dark Knight trilogy by the way.
The Dark Knight and Unforgiven, though
I once read Shawshank perfectly described as "the most good movie ever made," which is all I have to say about that.

I didn't even realize he was in that one. Must rewatch...

Indeed, Shawshank Redemption was awesome. He does a good job in Bruce Almight too, and the Bucket List, and there's this one movie where he actually plays a criminal, which one is that? In most he just seems to play himself, you know, wise person, advice on life, etc.
The Shawshank Redemption. It's almost unfair to say it's his best because the movie itself is one of the best movies ever made. If not Shawshank, I'd say Seven.
