Poll Results: Favorite Denzel Washington Film

Malcolm X

– Malcolm X: 6 votes
– American Gangster: 5 votes
– Glory: 5 votes
– Training Day: 4 votes
– Inside Man: 3 votes
– Philadelphia: 3 votes
– Flight: 2 votes
– Remember the Titans: 2 votes
– Deja Vu: 1 vote
– The Great Debaters: 1 vote
– The Hurricane: 1 vote
– John Q: 1 vote

The write-ins:
– Devil In a Blue Dress: 1 vote
– Man On Fire: 1 vote
– “twilight”: 1 vote (what?)

I may have unknowingly altered the results here. I forgot to list Training Day, which earned Denzel his only Best Actor award, until the end of last week. I have a feeling that might have snagged a few more votes if it were more prominently displayed in the results. At the same time, most recognize Malcolm X as his finest performance, so that probably still would have won anyway. Either way, it’s great to see so many films get votes.

This Week’s Poll: The Matt Damon-starring Elysium topped the box office over the weekend despite surprisingly mixed reviews. With Damon once again in the spotlight, it only seems appropriate to ask this: what are your TWO favorite Matt Damon movies? This one should provide some interesting results.

Have a great week, folks!

    Tough voting this time around. Could easily vote for about 5 of them. But settled on The Bourne Ultimatum and Good Will Hunting. He’s excellent at Jason Bourne and I think the third film he really got some good stuff to play with.

    The winner is not surprising.
    I think American Gangster is overrated and Training Day should have gotten a couple of more votes.
    I also really enjoyed Man on Fire, which I was glad to see someone include (though it wasn’t me). There was great intensity to the movie and to his character that had me rooting for him from the beginning.

      I agree about American Gangster. It’s a good film, but it is missing something to take it to the next level. Been a while since I watched it though.

      And yeah, I don’t know how Training Day got omitted from the first few days of the poll. I’m almost positive that I included it…

    I thought he was good even in The Book of Eli, but I really thought Training Day would win the poll πŸ™‚

    As for the current poll, well I picked his first two Bourne films as that’s my fave Damon roles. I was just talking about him in my weekend roundup too πŸ˜€
