This week there is lots of news, but most of it kept us wondering, “Wait… that’s real?” From Detective Pikachu to Quentin Tarantino directing the next Star Trek movie and Patrick Stewart saying that he’d come back for that we feel like we may have jumped into a mirror universe.
From the Feedback
Jared Elder Pic
- You guys asked for some nonwhite male characters to add to your list. I’m very disappointed you guys didn’t think of any of the Denzel Washington movies, seriously every other movie he makes is a conflicted character
- Julia Roberts in Sleeping with the Enemy
Halle Berry – Catwoman, Swordfish, X-men (the one who makes pretty cloud shapes tells the death toucher that she’s perfect just the way she is), Losing Isaiah
- Jackie Chan – Drunken Master, Shanghai Noon
Forest Whitaker – Repo Men, Battlefield Earth
Chiwetel Ejiofor as the Operative in Serenity or Karl Mordo in Doc Strange
The Rock – Scorpion King, Fast & Furious, Maui
Cuba Gooding Jr. – Lighting Jack, Jerry Maguire
Jet Li in The One.
- Inigo Montoya – Princess Bride
Samuel L Jackson – Afro-Samurai, Pulp Fiction, the MCU (Nick Fury is an assassin), Kong Skull Island, Unbreakable, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Black Snake Moan, The Negotiator, Jumper, Amos & Andrew, Rules of Engagement, Hitman’s Bodyguard, etc
- Denzel Washington – every 3rd movie (John Q, Book of Eli, Equalizer, Man on Fire, Virtuosity, Flight, American Gangster, Remember the Titans, 2 Guns, Out of Time, etc etc etc etc)
