Says alot when a guy can have three great performances in 15 years and still get more shine than Denzel
More shine then Denzel? More awards then Denzel, maybe. Who do you think has more fans, though?
I'd rather somebody consistently put out good movies, instead of averaging one good movie every five years with a fantastic lead performance.
DDL is one of the most overrated actors out. There are plenty of actors who could do what he did if they took as much time as he does.
I'm not knocking DDL by any means, he's gonna leave behind a hell of a legacy and he has put in a few SOLID performances. But as a viewer why would I prefer him over a guy who has put out 14 entertaining movies (Only counting the ones I found entertaining) over the same span of time as DDL has put out three? Granted, DDL's performances are more varied and stronger than Denzels, but who really gives a fu*k? It's not even like DDL is some big draw. Lincoln made a k!lling because it was about arguably the most popular President in American history. His other movies? Not so much. Even There Will Be Blood, which many people consider one of the GOAT movies.
I'm sorry, three good performances in FIFTEEN years is not impressive.
