The Five Flicks: My DENZEL WASHINGTON & TONY SCOTT Marathon

So, Yeah, My Peeps…

…This Weekend I’ve Been Having Myself A Little Movie-Marathon-Action.

I Decided To Make It All About Flicks That Both…

…Star…

DENZEL WASHINGTON

…And Are Directed By…

TONY SCOTT

๐Ÿ˜€

Needless To Say…

…It’s Been An AWESOME Little Marathon, Fo Flippin’ SHO, Kiddies!

๐Ÿ˜€

The FIVE FLICKS For This Little Marathon-Of-Awesomeness Are…

1995s

CRIMSON TIDE

2009s

THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3

2010s

UNSTOPPABLE

2006s

Dร‰Jร€ย VU

…And Of COURSE…

2004s

MAN ON FIRE

!!! !!!! !!!

Originally…

…This Wasn’t Going To Be A Movie Marathon At All.

I Was Simply Gonna Kick-It-Back And Watch…

CRIMSON TIDE

…As It’s One Of My Favorite Flicks Of ALL-TIME!

Being An Ex-Navy Man, It Really Gets My Blood Pumpin’ Pumpin’ PUMPIN’!!!

I Actually Remember Being Taken To See It In The Theater In 1995.

I Was Spending A Week With My Aunts…

…And They Gave Me The Choice Of Seeing Any Movie I Wanted.

Even Though This One Is Rated-R, They Still Agreed To It.

They Knew I Wanted To Be In The Navy…

…And They Seriously Saw No Harm In Taking Me To It.

The Three Of Us All Came Out Of The Theater Afterward With Our Eyes All Alight…

…Hearts Beating So Hard, So Fast, Sheesh.

It Was INCREDIBLE!!!

… … …

… …

Next…

…I Decided To Watch…

THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3

…Which Is Another Totally Fun Fun Flick, Fo SHO!

I’d Seen The Original 1970s Version…

…So I Sort Of Had An Idea Of Where This One Might Lead.

To My Surprise…

…I Actually LOVED This Version.

I Have A Sort Of Soft-Spot For…

JOHN TRAVOLTA

…When He Plays A BADDIE!

Sure Enough…

…He’s A Mighty Fine Baddie In This One, Totally TOTALLY!!!

--->(Plot Summary Here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1111422/plotsummary)<---

… … …

… …

I Followed Those Awesome Flicks With…

UNSTOPPABLE

…Which, Honestly, Is The Weakest Flick Of The Bunch.

It’s Pretty Cool In Places…

…Though I Admit To Being A Touch Bored In A Few Other Places.

Nevertheless…

…It Fit In Perfectly With The Whole Spirit Of My Little Marathon…

…And It’s At Least Worthy Of A Mention Here.

--->(Plot Summary Here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0477080/plotsummary)<---

… … …

… …

The Fourth Flick In My Mini-Marathon Was…

Dร‰Jร€ย VU

…Which Is A Flick That COULD BE Too Smart For Its Own Good.

It’s Much Better Than The Previous Flick…

…But A Little Confusing In Places.

Somehow, Though, I Think This Was Done On Purpose.

Anytime You Start Talking About An Action Flick That Delves Into The Realm Of Time-Alterations, Or Altering The Past…

…It Forces One To Stretch Their Imagination.

Being A Highly Imaginative Person…

…I Was Able To Make The Leap Without Too Much Of A Problem.

Some People…

…However…

…Won’t Make The Leap As Easily, And I Feel This Flick Would Seriously Become VERY Confusing To Them.

It’s Still A Helluva Fun Flick…

…And I Was More Than Happy To Give It Another Go’round, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

--->(Plot Summary Here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453467/plotsummary)<---

… … …

… …

The Final Flick Of My Marathon Is A Total No-Brainer.

It’s My FAVORITE Flick Of The DENZEL & TONY Collabs…

MAN ON FIRE

…FO SHO, My Peeps!!!

CRIMSON TIDE

…Had Always Been My Favorite Until This One Came Out.

After Seeing It Just Once, I Was Totally And Forever HOOKED.

Period.

DENZEL

…Commands The Screen Here.

He IS The Flick.

I Can’t Imagine Anyone Else Playing His Part…

…Nor Would I Really Even Want To.

He’s Spot-On-PERFECTION.

If I Were The Man In-Charge Of Handing-Out The Oscars…

…I Would Have Told The Other Candidates To Simply Stay Home.

DENZEL Deserved Every Award In The World For This One.

Hands Down…

…And…

…FO SHO!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

… … …

… …

Needless To Say, My Peeps…

…This Weekend Had All The Makings Of Yet Another Boring Ass Weekend, Spent Mainly Alone, Without Anything To Hold My Interest Other Than My Blog, Or A Good Book.

That Is, Until I Decided To Have My Little Marathon.

DENZEL WASHINGTON And TONY SCOTT

…Joined Forces To Help Turn A Rather Disappointing Weekend Into Something FUN And EXCITING.

Plus…

…They Gave Me The Quickie Idea For This Little Blog Posting.

That Alone Makes It All Worth It.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…It Really Was Worth It.

I Tend To Think Of Myself As A Rather Boring Person…

…Though I Suppose Some Folks May Disagree.

But…

…In All Honesty…

…It’s Hard To Be Boring When You’ve Got Such Amazingly Awesomely Wonderfully Wonderful Flicks To Kick-It-Back With.

So I’ll Give This Weekend A Passing Grade.

Wouldn’t You?!

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Please Enjoy The Rest Of Your Weekend, Kiddies.

I’m Doin’ My Best With What I’ve Got.

That’s A BIG Ole FO SHO!

  1. DW is awesome. But can you believe I’ve only seen ONE of those movies? Crimson Tide (and you’re right, it was good).

    Here’s the weird thing–I don’t think I’ve even HEARD of Deja Vu or Unstoppable.

    Have you seen Mr. Washington’s first movie–Carbon Copy? It’s worth a miss.

  2. Denzel Washington is one of the greatest actors ever and deserves all the praise he gets! Man On Fire is one of my all time favourite films too

  3. I don’t think it had happened when you put out this post, but Tony Scott is dead.
    It happened Sunday. It appears to have been suicide, I’m sorry to say. I just saw the sad news.

  4. Deja Vu is a classic… brilliant movie… though if you think about it too much you realise it could never unfold the way it does, but hey, when Denzel’s the lead, who cares?
