The classic that has been answered so many times as people's favourite movie that it's pretty much become a joke to say it is. That doesn't take away from the fact that it really is one of the all time greatest movies. In case you have somehow never had the privilege of watching it yet, it stars Tim Robbins as a banker who is wrongly jailed for his wife's murder. Over the course of his life sentence he forms a close friendship with a fellow inmate, played by Morgan Freeman. And well, we won't spoil any of it for you, but it's the kind of movie that after you watch it, you literally can't be sure if you've ever seen a better movie, or ever will.
