Equalizer 2 Trailer 2 HD

I just only watched the first Equalizer a couple to weeks ago. I had planned on watching it months ago but always put it aside. Well I do wish I had watch it when I had intended. I really enjoyed the film. Man I got to tell ya Denzel was one hell of an action star in this film. I was not sure if I would like it but I was pleasantly surprise.  

Like yourself I have to really watch how I spend my money and going to the movie has become a special event now a days. Well this boy will be spending some on this film. I think if anyone but Denzel was doing it I would wait for it to come on Netflix. Denzel Washington is one of the few remaining true Hollywood stars left and he has a hell of a screen presences. So spend a few bucks and I think you will have a fun time. Yeah it about killing but it not real so we can enjoy it……..right?

Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career. Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?

Equalizer 2 hitting the theaters July 20 of this year.

Luke Cage Season 3: Sweet Christmas

Luke Cage is back and boys and girls I have looked forward to his return. I have not been disappointed. Okay is it perfect, no but showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker  created more than just a super-hero show. Season 3 deals with family, revenge, justice, accepting who you are and relationships.

Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is back and coming to accept that his role as the protector the streets of Harlem. Those streets are about to get crowded as John ‘Bushmaster’ Mclver (Mustafa Shakir)comes to get revenge on Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Many years ago the Stokes, Mariah Dillard’s maiden name, took what belong to both the Stokes and Mclver, Bushmaster Rum. Bushmaster seeks revenge and plans to make Mariah Stokes pay for what her family has done.

That folks is the A story but season 2 of Luke Cage has so many other layers. Mercedes “Misty” Knight(Simone Missick) struggles with the loss of her arm and being back on the force. Rosario Dawson returns as Claire Temple and her relationship with Luke is tested.  Luke feels the weight of Harlem on his shoulders and that slowly begins to chip away his and Claire’s relationship. Theo Rossi once again plays Hernan “Shades” Alvarez a character that you hate but love to see on the screen.

Introduced in Season 2 are Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson daugther of Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). In what I consider one of the best scenes in the series is Mariah tells Tilda about her real father. Alfre Woodard gives a amazing performance here.  Tilda plays well off Alfre and you can feel both their pain. Also we are introduced to Mustafa Shakir as Bushmaster. I very capable match for Luke Cage and a very good job from Mustafa Shakir. Also the show has the final performance of Reg E. Cathey. If you don’t know the name you will know his face. Reg give a very heartfelt and touching  performance as Luke’s father.

Okay so the above was my attempted at being a reviewer. That was ewwww. Now this is really my review.

I love Season 2 of Luke Cage. I will be honest. I read some other reviews to try and make this article a well written review. But dam they are all over the place. Some critics loved it. Other thought it was poop. Well folks my advice is just watch it. Make up your own minds but damn give this a view. Don’t binge it, well I don’t recommend it. Take you time. Savior it, ingest it and drink it in slowly. There are performances that need to not be rushed through. Lines of dialogue that you will not remember because you need to see it all in one sitting. Mike Colter leads a great cast of actors.

Jessica Henwick(Collen Wing) shows up and her and Misty have some kicking ass fun in a bar. Cool as shit.

Buy far Luke Cage is my favorite superhero series on TV right now. Oh shit the music. Once again the music for the show is brilliant. I enjoyed all of it. Some of the rap lyrics was a little raw but hey I am a fat middle age white guy. But I did Shazam a few of those songs.

I could go on and on about different aspects of the series but shit that be a long ass read. So finally, yeah I know to long a article, but pull up a chair on Friday. You will enjoy Season 2 and if not, talk to the hand.

Movie Monday: Apocalypse Now Now

Based on the novel written by Charlie Human this short film is a proof of concept from Micheal Matthews.

Baxter Zevcenko’s life is pretty sweet. He’s making a name for himself as the kingpin of his smut-peddling high-school syndicate, the other gangs are staying out of his business, and he’s dating the girl of his dreams, Esme.

But when Esme gets kidnapped, things start to get seriously weird, and the only man drunk enough to help is a bearded, booze-soaked, supernatural bounty hunter that goes by the name of Jackson ‘Jackie’ Ronin.

Plunged into the increasingly bizarre landscape of Cape Town’s supernatural underworld, Baxter and Ronin team up to save Esme. On a journey that takes them through the realms of impossibility, they must face every conceivable nightmare to get her back, including the odd brush with the Apocalypse.
