A little different start to August movies, as I'll go ahead and lump these three directed by Antoine Fuqua together.

145. (1374.) The Equalizer (2014)
146. (1375.) The Equalizer 2 (2018)
148. (1377.) Training Day (2001)

I watched Denzel Washington's Equalizer because Dad wanted to see the sequel. It was good, both suspenseful and violent. Unfortunately, the sequel was not its equal. Instead of going to the theater to see the new one, watch television reruns of the original instead.

Afterwards, I sought out Training Day because it was the first collaboration between Fuqua and Washington. I had heard so many good things about it over the years, and it won Denzel a Best Actor Oscar. The word of mouth was justified, and Ethan Hawke was also great. I'd watch it again.

More to come.
