The other day I was minding my own business when my Blu-Ray player crapped out on me, so I had to resort to Netflix streaming. Looking at my pitiful options, I almost went in for THE AMITYVILLE ASYLUM but then I thought about it for a minute and almost threw up (thoughts on that movie to come in the future) and I saw this out there. I remember reading a lot of praise for this thing by my bloggas out there but… as I am who I am… a lot of praise usually = shit that might make me want to harm myself, so I never looked at it. Especially since this was from the writer / director of CRAZY HEART. A movie I detest even though I haven’t seen it. I emailed Zoe asking if it was any good and she said “yes it’s one of my favorite films of 2013, you dummy” so I gave it a look and —> it was FUCKING FANTASTIC!!! I loved it from start to finish and I highly recommend it to anyone who is on the fence. It is NOT a pretentious, art house asshole, Christian Bale and Woody Harrelson do some great acting and it just shows again that Casey Affleck is an amazing actor. Forest Whitaker even didn’t do too bad of a job and Sam Shepard had a great supporting role. I loved it. In his most bold – yet award inducing performance to date, Denzel Washington plays an uptight, white Englishman who is there to help those who need it! He’s not afraid to pull out an Uzi, make it with the chicks, or wear a long, red scarf! Praised by critics as “Brazen like a Mo-Fo!” and “Unheard of!!” and “Denzel has really lost his shit!!!” and “Man, he’s got some balls doing this…”, The Equalizer proves he’s got what it takes to anchor a prime time TV detective drama! Good stuff!
