The Equalizer

By James Jay McDowell, 9/26/2014
The Equalizer is an excellent movie starring Denzel Washington, Martin Csokes, & Chloë Grace Moretz. This film isn't an all-out action movie but has parts that'll make you think there are people out there are just evil and greedy.

Denzel plays Robert McCall, a retired Black Ops Commando who is single & works for a home improvement store. McCall spends his nights at a small local diner where he meets a teen prostitute named Teri.

They chat occasionally and McCall watches her from a distance, not letting himself get too close but one evening, after finding out that her Russian Pimp, Slavi beats her half to death, he decides to fight on her behalf & teaches the Russian Mob a lesson in American Counterinsurgency.

Suffice to say, the end of the movie is left wide open for a sequel which is currently in the works.

This film is one of the best films starring Denzel Washington in my opinion!

When James isn't busy reviewing films, you can catch him serving adult libations at TC's from 8 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday.

‘First Comes Love’ celebrates Parker, Hubbard

Before there was Mayor Annise Parker, there was Annise and Kathy and their relationship that is now in its 24th year. A new book celebrates the gay Houston couple and more than 60 others in enduring LGBT relationships.

"First Comes Love" is a celebration of love stories by everyday people, public officials like Parker and wife Kathy Hubbard, and activists, including two couples that were plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Prop 8, the gay marriage ban in California. It's the work of photographer Barbara Proud, who documents in stark black and white images LGBT couples that have been together for decades.
