The Equalizer has been updated as a protective man with a mysterious government past. He works in a Home Depot-like store, introduces an abused hooker to good literature and kills a lot of evil Russians with some supplies from his day job.
I will talk about Denzel's new action movie hero feature. I rejoin the Arise On Screen team Saturday, September 27th. If you're in the New York tri-state area, watch us on Time Warner Ch. 92 or Verizon Ch. 481 at 5:30p Eastern time with a Saturday repeat at 7:30p Eastern. Arise On Screen repeats on Sunday at 5:30p ET.
We'll also review Pride, a British film starring Billy Nighy and Imelda Staunton. Arise On Screen host/critic Mike Sargent has urged me to see this movie. I haven't seen it yet but the trailer makes me think it's a bit like The Full Monty.
We stay in the United Kingdom with André Benjamin, formerly of OutKast. He stars as the late, great rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix. The feature, shot like a semi-documentary, is Jimi: All Is By My Side.
