"Right, right. Welcome to black. Men can't jump in Hollywood. Sitter. Pretty to Brad, but at that. Sounds like you. Brad. Honestly, James, what is happening. So you know what I'm saying equalizer too. It's a like, you know. So now it's like black because it's all these gunshots black. Yeah, we know that. Okay enough. My name is Jonathan Bray. Lock drum militaire and money is gene. James. If you say, did you did you drop out. Nope. I said my full name. Oh, oh, we didn't hear it. We, yes, some have almost happened, say it again. Okay. No, I know that was how I said it. Like in a way it was like a set in a way like, and then it was like, cool. It was like you would. It was like a fatal took a fater and then it was like. Okay. No, no, honestly, just sounds like you're you stop talking. So you know, maybe you say it again? No, I said it. I said, nobody heard your name. It's James at third, everybody. This is the podcast Blackman can't jump in Hollywood. We review films with leading black actors. We talk about them in the context of rates and versity in Hollywood, your boom, but we're movie fans. You know, we're comedians. We like to keep it light and then slap you with some real. This. Well, some ruinous sloppy with this is what people want in the morning. Yeah, just getting yelled at. We are reviewing the film. The equalizer to this is the first sequel Denzel, Washington. It's ever made ever main, which does it, which doesn't compute. Also Anton Fukuda's first sequel which. Yeah, both both. This was the sequel. They both decided that they wanted to. Yeah, it's crazy. It. It doesn't necessarily feel intentional to me just feels like they finally gave into the nature of Hollywood, which is sequels. Remakes re boots like it's so all consuming. Now that even done. So Washington's like, fine, I'll make a sequel but why this one, that's what I'm saying doesn't feel intentional. It doesn't feel. But I mean, we'll get into it. But I mean, it's. The is a fun movie. We haven't reviewed it on the podcast, but no, because I felt like Manno fire. Yeah, it's a similar. It's a similar thing. There's little white girls in both mad on fire and the equalizer Denzel Washington is killing people in both of them. He's like an ex military person of some sort in both of them, and he's just like, you know, it just classic Denzel Washington and also welcome all. Are they the same movie which one fire in the eyes of the same movie? Very similar. Honestly, the equalizer is man on fire except like in America with hardware tools. The big thing with the equalizer was that he, he worked at a hardware store and then like, doesn't he doesn't. He an equaliser doesn't he like get the people to come to the hardware store? And it's like a bunch of booby traps like alone? Yeah, because the thing is. Home loans. Hardware. Him home alone in his home alone, contraptions kill you.."
