Morgan An Actor to Adore

Mr. Morgan Freeman sparkles and shines like a diamond with the many facets to his talents and skills. I adore his laid back attitude in movies, and he shocks me when he plays a mean, wicked, greedy and/or political role.

He is one of the greatest actors living today. He is also a highly intelligent man who could surpass many college professors in teaching on many subjects. He is a smooth-spoken man who speaks 3 ½ languages.


I Wish We Could Know What He is Thinking

So Handsome and Relaxed

Mr. Morgan Freeman Wears Many Hats

Morgan Freeman is an American Actor, Producer, Director and Author and Morgan has done T.V. Commercials. I for one love to hear his voice now matter the circumstances.. He is such a stupendous actor; and I have always said he was one of the “Kings of Hollywood” and such a gentleman.

No wonder actresses like Ashley Judd, Virginia Madsen, Jessica Tandy, Ruby Dee, Katie Holmes and many more just love being around him as an actor, and a gentleman respected by everyone that has touched his life in a professional or personal way.

All his fans pay tribute to him by buying his videos, DVD’s and books and I do.

He was born June 1, 1937 (75) in Memphis, Tennessee. His handsome body is 6’1” tall and at his age looks and acts many years younger. He has made movies with many great actors and actresses and I am sure he has his favorites.

He is a man who appreciated his roots and has lived on the rich soil of his home state of Mississippi since was a child. His parents moved to Mississippi in 1959 and it had always felt like home to him. So he built his home in Mississippi and has entertained the world with his talents. He is an American icon, one of the most respected men in America/World today.

Mr. Morgan Freeman has been one of my favorite actors for as long as I can remember watching movies. He is an Oscar-winning actor, and has 101 titles to his career. He has written narrated and co-written 16 books listed on Goodreads for his fans, is the world's largest site to share and recommend books. One can find many books by other authors written about Morgan Freeman who's an excellent subject.

He makes me smile, laugh, hide my eyes, shocks me, saddens me, keeps my attention and makes me want more. And, that is what a fan is and if you are reading this then you understand. He is one of few actors I ever wanted to meet.

This is My Tribute to a King of Hollywood the "Great Morgan Freeman."

Angel Has Fallen

Angel Has Fallen--I Give it a Five Star Rating

Now You See Me

Now You See Me

Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has Fallen

Now You See Me

I love Morgan Freeman’s voice and it is especially nice in this movie where illusionist out smart and do their magic. Their magic creates happiness for people who received the money from the banks they robbed. They give back to the ones who have lost so much.

They are the Magical Jesse James and Robin Hood of present time. However, they are the arrows that pierced the FBI’s armor which starts the big chase of the Illusionist.

Who will win? You will have to watch the DVD to find out if you missed the movie. I cannot wait to get mine. Any movie with Morgan Freeman is on my list to buy because he is so great.

Olympus Has Fallen

In Olympus Has Fallen because the President of the United States President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) forcefully taken hostage by a terrorist instigator Kang (Rick Yune).

Olympus is the Secret Service Code for the White House and the gates of Hell opened with all its demons firing from air and the ground with the White House being attached from all points of view and it all happened without warning in minutes. It was truly a surprise attack and one wonders why we did not hear anything from our sources that we depend on.

Later after the smoke died down; all seemed lost for the President and the others captured with him. But he is brave enough to tell Kang ' We do not negotiate with terrorist.' And Kang replies 'Who said anything about negotiating.'

Then Congressman Martin Turnbull (Morgan Freeman) the Speaker of the House starts with instructions of whom he wants notified. Speaker Turnbull is an experienced politician who operates with calmness, professionalism and has the knowledge to deal with the terrorist to disarm the enemy and keep the country safe.

Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) who is a discredited earlier Presidential guard became trapped within the White House building. And until the Swat Team and others are able to enter Banning related inside information to Speaker Turnbull and his group as to the enemy and its number of players and their location. His information might help to save the President and the country we will have to wait until March 22, 2013 to see the movie. I cannot wait, I am biting my nails.

First Lady Margaret Asher (Ashley Judd) is in a car accident in the beginning of the movie and I don’t know what happened to her I am anxious to find out. She is one of my favorite actresses and I am happy to see her work with Morgan once again. They work so well together like father and daughter.


Oblivion

Jack (Tom Cruise) will take your mind out of the comfort zone with this Sci-Fi movie. After so many wars on our planet earth is a twisted and mangled scrap heap guarded by Jack a drone repairman. Life is routine until Jack finds a crashed spaceship.

A crashed space ship is one thing but what Jack finds inside causes him to reconsider what is real and what is not. Then Beech (Morgan Freeman) appears and his life as he knew it I gone.

What a great escape from reality after a long hard week at work. Buy this one and plan a relaxing movie night with someone special.

Pop the popcorn and drizzle chocolate over mine. Enjoy the movie.

Kiss The Girls Movie

accolades-for-morgan-freeman

Kiss The Girls Movie

Kiss The Girls is one of my favorite movies with Morgan Freeman (Dr. Alex Cross) and Ashley Judd (Dr. Kate McTiernan). Kate is a surgeon who stayed in shape by kick boxing. She is a strong and confident person who refuses to become a victim for very long when caught as one.

This movie keeps one's attention with action, adventure, crime, murder, kidnapping, and many thrills will bounce you off the seat. Fasten your seat belts because the ride is bumpy.

An insane serial killer or killers has taken eight (8) girls and hidden them in a place where no one can find them. That is until Kate McTiernan escaped from it.

So with that knowledge she helped Dr. Alex Cross as they searched the woods for hidden place of evil. Dr. Cross is mad and scared because it is now personal for him they have his niece. She is in the killers collection of girls; as Dr. Cross said he wanted to collect the girls not kill them.

I held my breath through most of it until the surprised ending; which was unbelievable and I closed my eyes in some parts until I had watched it many times before I kept them opened.

I still enjoy the movie and watch it on my Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd Movie Nights in my bedroom with my Sweetie Angel, my Pomeranian.

Tanya Jones from Texas USA on October 03, 2014:

I just love Morgan Freeman. There is something really positive that comes through in every role I've seen him in, something good. I'm hard pressed to recall a movie in which he played a true villain that deserved punishment or death. Great hub.

Debra Allen from West By God on October 03, 2014:

I love as a great actor. He did more than those movies though. He starred in Driving Miss Daisy and he also does the science show, Through The Wormhole. He is still active

Have a great week.

Amelia Griggs from U.S. on May 21, 2013:

I agree with you, PurvisBobbi44...Morgan Freeman is one of the most talented actors, and one of my favorites is Shawshank Redemption, which others have mentioned above. I didn't realize he spoke several languages.

Thanks for the additional movie recommendations.

Voted this hub thumbs up!

Thanks,

rmcmillen on April 18, 2013:

Morgan Freeman is one of my all time favorite actors, but I can't help but feel that he was demoted just a little.... he went from playing the President to playing God to playing the man that gives Batman "all those little toys" (A step up even from playing God if you ask a comicbook fanboy like my self...... also, if you get that quote reference, kudos) to playing the Secretary of State in the Olympus Has Fallen..... again.................... pretty big demotion there, eh?

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on March 23, 2013:

Hi,

Thanks for your visit and comment. You are correct when his name appears---I have to watch.

Thanks,

I agree, when Morgan's name is on the highlights, we are compelled to watch whatever he may be an actor in. He is a great actor and representative of the human spirit. whonu

Jeff Gamble from Denton, Texas on March 22, 2013:

Bobbi - Morgan Freeman is most certainly a fabulous actor, and he has never done a bad movie, in my opinion. This was a great take on a great actor. And when you look back to some of his early work, specifically the PBS show Electric Company, well, even that was great! (His role as Dracula for instance http://youtu.be/Wp0-yDJAtWQ) Up & awesome

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on March 22, 2013:

Morgan Freeman is definitely a fine actor...my favorite movie of his is "The Shawshank Redemption". My husband and I just saw an ad for "Olympus Has Fallen", and we're looking forward to seeing the movie. Thanks for this well-written tribute to a great actor...voted up and awesome!

Christy Birmingham from British Columbia, Canada on March 22, 2013:

Morgan Freeman is one of my favorites, Bobbi! I love the sound of his voice and can see why he narrates many films and other projects. Shawshank Redemption is one of my top 5 movies :)

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on March 20, 2013:

Bobbi

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on March 20, 2013:

I don't think I've ever seen a movie with Morgan Freeman that I didn't like. If he's in a movie I'll go and see it just because it's Morgan. I saw him on The Actors Studio and I was glued to the TV.

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on March 14, 2013:

Hi,

I just love this actor and I am sure he is a great person to know, He is a 100 on a scale of 1-10. The very Zenith of all---- is Morgan Freeman.

Bobbi

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 14, 2013:

I don't know how anyone can watch many movies and not come across a great movie with Morgan Freeman. He is a great actor that has played so many types of roles. Awesome hub!

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 26, 2013:

Hi Sunshine,

I am green also---and DebbieBrooks Langford lives about 40 miles from him. I told her to kiss him for me when she saw him. But I am sure she will forget it---I would.

You have a great week and I hope to be able to be online more. You are still one of my favorite Hubbers.

Bobbi

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on February 26, 2013:

I love every movie Morgan Freeman has ever starred in. If I had to pick a favorite it would be Shawshank Redemption. Awesomeness! Kiss The Girls, Deep Impact...etc...etc...All of his movies. I am green with envy that Nell Rose saw him in person! :)

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 20, 2013:

Hi Nell Rose,

What a great story and you were blessed to talk to him. He has the sweetest smile and I know you enjoyed evry second. Thanks for sharing that with me---it has made my day. WOW!

Bobbi

Nell Rose from England on February 19, 2013:

Hi bobbi, get out the drum roll! lol! I met him! seriously! it was back in 2003 if my memory serves me right, I was coming back just on a normal airline from Tenerife. There is a huge golf course there, and we were staying in the golf apartments. When we got to the airport and were waiting to board, my friend, chatty little thing, started talking to a huge guy in front of us in the small queue, not to be left out I sidled past her to chat to the guy in front and nearly died of shock! it was Morgan Freeman! he was trying, not successfully I might add, to hide behind a large cap, and making out he was reading a book while in the line! haha! I remember thinking, what they heck do I talk about? I had accosted him more or less to talk to me! we just chatted generally about the golf course, then they got called into the celeb lounge. When we boarded the plane he smiled at me, then when we got to England I got off first, looked back, and he waved and smiled at me! Whoo hoo! haha! loved him before, love him even more now! I think he must have been filming in England, but took time out over the weekend to grab a plane to go and play golf with his minder, who I believe was the great big guy my friend was talking too. The funny thing was, I was so excited to tell her who he was she was in hysterics at me! lol! great hub, and really interesting.

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 16, 2013:

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on February 10, 2013:

Morgan is ONE of the BEST. He becomes the character...in every role I have ever seen him in I am convinced of the authenticity of the person he portrays. Choosing one is impossible ...one that I had never seen until recently is The Magic of Belle Isle...it was his usual amazing work. You picked a winner for sure.Thanks for sharing this with us..

Sending Angels your way this evening. :) ps

Bobbi

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 10, 2013:

Yes he does---he is one of my special "Eye Candy" guys. I would like to see him in a love story---that would be a hit.

An action movie with a love twist would be HOT.

Bobbi

Suzie from Carson City on February 10, 2013:

OH! and Bobbi.....I meant to add that Morgan seems to get more handsome and dashing with age!! That top photo of his is fabulous.

Martin Kloess from San Francisco on February 10, 2013:

You got me with one, Freeman has long been one of my favorites. And I think you did a marvelous job. Thank you

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 09, 2013:

You picked a good one here, Bobbi! This is one classy actor, and so talented. I have not seen him in a role that he did poorly and that is remarkable. I have seen him carry bad movies all by himself, and not many actors can do that. Well done Bobbi!

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 09, 2013:

Hi Paula,

You are great in picking the best in men---actors or not. I have so many of his movies and tonight I am watching some of them over again. They never get old. And I hope you are having a great weekend with your family.

Thanks for your visit and as always great comments. And thanks for the votes---I appreciate them.

Bobbi

Suzie from Carson City on February 09, 2013:

Bobbi....Oh, yes, how I adore Morgan. His roles are wonderfully entertaining and there's just "something special" about him, that attracts me to him and any movie he is in. The reality is, he's NEVER made a bad movie.

On a personal, off-screen level, he's all that you describe so well, and more. A man who has made 100+ movies and has been part of Hollywood for many decades...managing to have not one single scandal, attached to his name. Amazing, wouldn't you say?

I share your devotion to him, Bobbi. You know a great Actor/Man when you see one!!... UP++++

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on February 09, 2013:

Hi,

Yes he is and I am glad others feel as I do about his great tallent. I want to read one of his books.
