glory

You guys can thank W. Kamau Bell for today’s post…

On the last episode of the ‘Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor Ever’ podcast, they finally got around to ‘Glory.’  No one really argues about this film.

I had to go back and look up the clip below though.  I remember the first time I saw this like it was yesterday.  Sitting in class during black history month, I say without trying to be funny that I teared up AND caught the Spirit the first time I saw this scene.

The power of cinema and I love my people and the importance of seeing some version of yourself and people you know I rolled into one.

Enjoy.

 

Denzel Washington Visits "Late Show With David Letterman"

We’re in full film geek season, so I’ll start the week by hyping up my favorite new podcast.

While I don’t ‘agree’ with the title, W. Kamau Bell (of Totally Biased) and Kevin Avery came up with a GENIUS concept.  Alphabetically, go through the IMdb of Denzel and argue/debate/fawn over why Denzel is one of the best who’s ever done it.  They’ve got the checklist that covers if Denzel does all of his ‘Denzel-isms’ in the movie (and you know what they are), and hopefully going forward they’ll continue to grab guests like David Alan Grier, who did ‘A Soldier’s Play’ with Denzel back in the day and gives some interesting insight (as well as have his own absolutely hilarious stories).

Instant must listen for the (black) film geek crowd.  Check it out!
