Denzel Washington Favorites

Here are our top ten favorite Denzel Washington movies ... and because we can't pick an ultimate favorite we've listed them here in reverse chronological order.

American Gangster is another bio-pic, one of Denzel Washington's specialties. This time he plays an infamous 70's drug lord. Interesting story and great acting (from co-star Russell Crowe as well).

Inside Man - an exciting thriller with more than it's share of twists and turns. Story more than character driven, nonetheless Denzel Washington shines as the detective charged with getting to the bottom of a mysterious bank robbery.

Denzel Washington plays a very very bad man in Training Day. This is the one that finally got him that Best Actor Oscar. Not to be missed.

We're suckers for inspiring sports themed movies and Remember the Titans doesn't disappoint.

Hate put me in here but love's gonna get me out says Rubin "The Hurricane" Carter. We defy you not to be inspired by Denzel Washington's portrayal of this remarkable man.

Crimson Tide - Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman go toe to toe and nose to nose in this top notch military thriller set in a high-tech submarine.

The Pelican Brief is a good motion picture adaptation of a John Grisham book. Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts shine in this fun legal thriller.

Philadelphia - heartbreaking. Tom Hanks has the showy role but Denzel Washington is outstanding as the lawyer charged with finding some justice in a terrible injustice.

This is one that gets better every time you watch it. Denzel Washington brings historical figure Malcolm X to life in this excellent Spike Lee film.

Glory - Denzel Washington's portrayal of Trip, a member of the 54th Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry who fought heroically and honorably as the only all-black regiment of the Civil War is the one that really got him noticed.

For Queen and Country

Nathaniel Serling ( Courage Under Fire ):

"Son, I work for the Pentagon, so I admit I'm a little slow on the uptake, but did you just threaten me?"
