Venice — The absence of hefty U.S. fare is beginning to be felt as the Venice Festival enters its second stretch.
Many of this year’s really big guns — the Weinstein Co.’s Oscar hopeful “The Imitation Game,” Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer,” David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice” — are now firing off at Telluride, Toronto and even, in Anderson and Fincher’s case, the New York Film Festival.
Given the high costs of opening a film on the Lido, especially for star-studded U.S. movies, Venice’s 71st edition raises the question of whether the balance of fest power is shifting to North America.
In the past two decades, Venice has held world premieres for several hundreds of U.S. works, including Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut,” Oscar-winners “Brokeback Mountain” and “The Hurt Locker” and George Clooney’s “Michael Clayton,” plus obviously “Gravity” last year. »

From Denzel Washington's The Equalizer to Laika's stop-motion animation The Boxtrolls to Kevin Smith's walrus-to-man horror pic Tusk, there's some hope that September »

Today I’ll be going back once again and looking at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. I mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be doing that here and there, there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Argo The nominees here for this ceremony were Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty. »

If you’re planning on heading to the Toronto International Film Festival next week, one movie that should definitely be on your radar is Sony’s The Equalizer. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the adaptation of the 1980′s TV show of the same name stars Denzel Washington as a former black ops soldier who fakes his own death in hopes of leaving his violent past behind and starting fresh.
All goes according to plan, too, until he stumbles upon a young prostitute played by Chloë Grace Moretz. When he learns that she’s in some deep trouble with extremely dangerous people, he springs back into action to help her and finds himself in an dangerous game of cat and mouse with the Russian mafia.
I screened the film last week and though I can’t say too much about it just yet, due to an embargo, I will tell you that »

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of all these safe, for the kiddies, PG-13 rated movies, and instead hunger for some more adult-themed R-rated pictures. And fortunately, there are a whole bunch of them coming this fall, such as the Ww II film "Fury" (which is reportedly extremely graphic and disturbing, and definitely a “hard” R), "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Birdman," "Horns," "Foxcatcher," "Gone Girl," "Nightcrawler" and, joining the list, and no surprise, is Denzel Washington/Antoine Fuqua’s "The Equalizer." The film received an R rating from the MPAA this week for “strong bloody »
Take another look @ images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass") in a recent fashion spread for "Flare" (Canada) magazine, supporting her performance as a 'sex worker' in "The Equalizer", starring Oscar winner Denzel Washington:
"It can be walking art," said Moretz about posing in various outfits for fashion magazines.
"Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30."
"People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude."
"I’m very driven in what I do...It’s the same when I’m acting. There’s no barriers..."

Aside from "King Arthur," filmmaker Antoine Fuqua is known for making action films that earn their R rating. "Shooter," "Training Day," "Olympus Has Fallen," "The Replacement Killers" and "Tears from the Sun" all deserve that rating because he doesn't compromise and rarely glorifies the violence.
The same holds true for his upcoming cinematic reboot of "The Equalizer" franchise. The Denzel Washington-led film has been labelled a "hard R" and Fuqua spoke with Collider on the set about why that's the case:
"I'm a product of older filmmakers I guess, the past where you get to make movies and scenes are what they are. You know if you think about Scorsese back in the day when he was making Taxi Driver, or Coppola or Frankenheimer, Sidney Lumet, they're making films where you witness violence in a real way.
And sometimes violence in a very real way is much faster and »
