The 50 Best Movies of the '90s

9. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Director: Frank Darabont
Stars: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton, William Sadler, Clancy Brown, Gil Bellows

Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Paul Newman and Robert Redford were all considered to play the role of the wise "Red" in The Shawshank Redepmtion but all paled in comparison to the magical, and incredibly honest, Morgan Freeman, who steals the spotlight from the true protagonist (Tim Robbins.)

Shawshank doesn't question whether or not the inmates Shawshank Prison are rightly imprisoned because they are more concerned with how they deal with the situation once they are sentenced for life. This heartwarming film teaches audiences that they should "get busy living, or get busy dying." If you haven't seen the movie, you should get busy watching.—VC
