Sound Off: Antoine Fuqua's 'The Equalizer' - So What Did You Think?

26 September 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "Got to be who you are in this world, no matter what." In theaters everywhere is The Equalizer, directed by Antoine Fuqua (of Training Day, Tears of the Sun, Brooklyn's Finest, Olympus Has Fallen), starring Oscar winner Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, a mysterious vigilante who takes on the Russian mob (and anyone who messes with him). The cast includes Chloe Moretz, Marton Csokas, Haley Bennett, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo. Is it any good? Does it live up to the TV show it's based on? If you've seen it, leave a comment with thoughts on The Equalizer. Spoiler Warning: We strongly urge everyone to actually see the film before reading ahead, as there may be spoilers below. We also encourage all commenters to keep major spoilers from the film to a minimum, if possible. However, this is an open discussion from this point on! »

'The Equalizer' Interview with Director Antoine Fuqua | Exclusive

24 September 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Antoine Fuqua is a filmmaker I have always admired and respected, not only for his skill behind the camera, but for the diversity of projects he undertakes. After cutting his teeth by directing a number of iconic music videos in the 1990s, including Coolio's "Gangster's Paradise," Prince's "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," and Toni Braxton's "Another Sad Love Song," Antoine Fuqua transitioned into features with The Replacement Killers and Bait before his breakout hit Training Day, where he directed Denzel Washington to a Best Actor Oscar.

From there, he took on a number of vastly different films such as the war drama Tears of the Sun, the medieval epic King Arthur, the grounded action-packed adaptation Shooter (which I still think is vastly underrated), the urban crime drama Brooklyn's Finest and last year's big-budget action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen.

Antoine Fuqua interview: The Equalizer, Training Day

22 September 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of The Equalizer talks about Denzel Washington, making Training Day, westerns, The Magnificent Seven remake and much more...

The last time director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington made a film together, the result was Training Day - the 2001 crime thriller for which Washington won Best Actor and co-star Ethan Hawke was nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

The Equalizer is a thriller of a very different sort, based as it is on the 80s TV series of the same name (you know, the one with the really catchy Stewart Copeland theme tune). This time, Washington's unquestionably the hero rather than the coolly psychotic antagonist - he's Robert McCall, a quiet, unassuming Boston guy who happens to be extremely good at killing people. When he gets in a tangle with Russian gangsters, it's clear that his special set of skills weren't learned down the local Diy store where he works. »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »
