“FLIGHT” IS DENZEL’S BEST MOVIE SINCE “TRAINING DAY”

#denzelwashington #janetcharlton

No one plays a villain better than Denzel Washington. Mostly because he can be so charming that you don’t realize he’s a bad guy right away – and by the time you do, it’s too late. His dirty cop in Training Day was unforgettable and his role in “Flight” is even more complex. In the movie he starts off as a swaggering heroic pilot and gradually the layers are peeled off to reveal a belligerent defensive addict in denial. An egotistical and malevolent force. We watch in horror as his private life is revealed to be unraveling and he keeps repeating his mistakes. Denzel’s performance is bigger than the albeit entertaining movie, and if anyone deserves an Oscar nomination he does.

    Well, gee, thanks for all the spoilers. Guess I don’t need to go see this one.

    Quite the opposite Janet. This movie should have been a made-for-TV movie or even more apropriately a cautionary training video for flight school.

    Denzel over-acted, once again. He wasn’t at all believable as falling down drunkard with a coke problem and penchant for flawed women. What a let down. Save your money people. Go see Skyfall

    Maybe I’ll just stick to watching Mayday, if I want authentic plane crash reenactments, thanks for the heads up Ringo.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
