Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
The only thing more dangerous than the line being crossed, is the cop who will cross it.
On his first day on the job as a narcotics officer, a rookie cop works with a rogue detective who isn't what he appears.
when I was 15, I thought that having a tattoo all over my ribs that reads "death is certain, life is not" would be the greatest and the most meaningful thing ever. Now imagine my surprise, when I watched this film for the first time.
Now i'm a fucking narc.
I don’t know how Ethan Hawke could ever be nominated for best supporting actor at the Oscars, seeing as he was a clear lead, but I won’t argue that he didn’t deserve any nomination as his performance of a rookie cop who wants to make it as a detective was nothing short of superb. This may perhaps go a bit unnoticed, because of the performance that is set by his colleague Denzel Washington. I never considered him much of a talented actor, but Alonzo proved to be one of the best bad cop personification I have seen on television. And with this praise out of the way it’s time to shift over to highlighting the dullness of the story in…
Finally I got 2 hours of free time to watch a movie. It has been four day since I watched anything. So I started surfing in my collection and found this one in a corner part.
This is my first time watching this movie. I knew Denzel won Academy Award for his performance but I still wasn't able to watch it.
The movie is about Hoyt who has just been assigned in Narcotics Dept. and is being sent to Alonzo for his Training Day. Hoyt is a honest cop who wants to do something for his society by cleaning the streets by drugs. He his happy to that he is going to be trained by Alonzo who is famous for…
One of the best movies ever!
This was a very disterbing film actually...
By disturbing I mean the realism of people and of the police force.
Dirty cops, crooked people.
Let's start with Denzel Washington.
One of the most powerful proformances I have ever seen! Menacing, tough, thug, smart, and just a bad ass in general.
Ethan Hawk on the other hand gave an equally outstanding proformance.
More of the good side of life. Unlike Alonso, he wants justice and to play by the rules. Smart, Loyal, good cop, and scared. He did a really great job in the very intense scenes!
Most of all...the washroom scene!
Definatly on my list for most intense and best scenes ever!
A solid police drama, nothing more, nothing less. "Training Day" makes up for its weak plot and overlong runtime thanks to the strong performances from Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, solid direction from Antoine Fuqua, and its strong entertainment value.
From the Trivia section of imdb:
"The quote "King Kong aint got shit on me" is a reference to 1930s King Kong"
half an extra star for the king kong-line, that's some extra serious oneliner. minus half a star for all stuff not denz 'n hawke.
I should have stopped right in the first second when I saw Ethan Hawke, but no. What was wrong with me??? Spent 2 hours on this macho sheit and all that for Denzel. Seems unreal that he got an Oscar for this after all the quality things he has done. He was good, but this did not need to be made nor watched for any other reason....
The acting and directing are amazing but i literally have no idea what the secong half of the story is about
"This shit's chess, it ain't checkers."
I gotta be honest, the bare plot synopsis sounds pretty damn boring to me. But I heard so much about this movie during my life I just had to find out what the whole thing is about myself someday. And you know what? I don't regret it at all.
Training Day manages to take a simple frame for a story and fill it with a lot of interesting stuff. The characters and the dialog do a lot here. So do the different sets. Creating a truly captivating one day in the life of these cops from morning to night.
Very cool guns and gangsters flick with what is probably Denzel Washington's best performance.
Convincente poliziesco d'azione diretto da Antoine Fuqua con solida professionalità e che può contare sulla buona prova di Ethan Hawke e soprattutto su quella ambigua di Denzel Washington. Ben orchestrate e un po' fuori dai soliti logori schemi le sequenze più concitate. La sceneggiatura è buona e senza fronzoli, anche se in alcuni passaggi risente di qualche forzatura. Il finale tirato inutilmente per le lunghe perde efficacia.
I do not understand the love for this movie. Rewatched to give it the benefit of the doubt but it is, once again, rather average.
Denzel and Ethan make the story have weight to it, and you really feel for these guys. Great writing, matched with great acting and well produced filmmaking, make this a very good movie.
this is the result of me only ever watching the social network
*before you say "YOU'VE NEVER SEEN ____?!" just…
These are my father's favourite films in order. I love his taste it's so preposterously dad.
