  • Lamar reviews-The Equalizer

    I was a huge fan of the TV show that aired from 85 to 89. When I saw that Denzel was making this movie I was like a kid at Christmas. And let me say for the record, just like Santa Claus Denzel does NOT disappoint! I have yet to see a role he cannot play. He makes it look effortless because he never appears to be trying too hard, if anything he's always understated. His confidence level in every character he plays i2 off the chart. He believes that he is that character and therefore we believe it too. The smooth way he carries himself along with his facial expressions, especially his eyes, speak way more than the dialog. His smile can be calming and reassuring, or it can make your blood run cold with fear, depending on what character he’s playing. He spends a lot of time in this movie quiet and perfectly still yet the tension and the apprehension of explosive action is so thick you could cut it with a knife. Read More
  • Lamar reviews - This is where I leave you.

    I have a list of actors that guarantees I’m seeing any movie they’re in, regardless. Denzel, Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, and Robert Downey Jr. are a few. Jason Bateman is definitely on that list and he never disappoints. Read More

  • Lamar reviews- As above, So below

    Let’s don’t think of this so much as a movie review but as a public service announcement/preparing for your retirement, advice. As in don’t waste your money on this movie, put it in your 401K. There were a lot of possible movies to review. Most of them with actual movie stars that you’ve heard of. But Todd being Todd says I have to go see a horror movie. And not just a horror movie but one that is so bad that not only do they not show it in the peak summer movie season but they won’t hold it until closer to Halloween when people are actually looking for any kind of scary movie. This is one of those movies that studios release this time of year and hope no one notices. No one did, except Todd. Read More
  • Lamar reviews - Sin City; A dame to kill for

    There are some of the same characters from the first film and some new ones. There are 4 story lines. Some that happened before the first movie and some that happen after, so it’s a mixture of a prequel and a sequel. You really need to see the first one. Read More
