DVD Tuesday: Denzel!

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

There are few actors that I will watch just to watch. Even if the movie is bad, I'll still dutifully buy my ticket, buy my popcorn and relax into the row on the rail at the Landmark. Denzel Washington is one of those actors. The Book of Eli is not a great film, but it is a solid piece of entertainment that is worth your rental or purchase dollars. Who knew that Unthinkable would cause such controversy? Michael Cera really -- REALLY -- needs to find different roles. He was perfect in Superbad and Arrested Development, but the nebbish thing is getting very old. Who would buy a Kendra Wilkinson DVD? I mean, other than this one?
