    Can't judge this one at all. Haven't seen enough Denzel- can't even name one movie, actually- and I don't like westerns.

    Denzel pretty versatile, playing both hero and villain in movies. Roles range from football coach in remember the Titans to bad training officer in training day to concerned parent willing to do anything for his son in John Q.

    Personally although Washington has had some bad movies his acting role in John Q particularly this scene is why I voted him.

    This one is tough. Denzel is pretty much the same character in everything he does but Eastwood is exactly the same character in every movie. I give the nod to Denzel because of Book of Eli and Remember the Titans being such good movies.

    I never thought Book of Eli was any good

    Denzel wins with Remember the Titans and Training day imo

    you're kidding right?

    Off the top of my head

    Training Day (plays corrupt cop)
    Equalizer (like john wick but realistic and not stupid)
    Glory (about a black civil war regiment)
    Fences (black baseball player during segregation)
    Safe House (CIA spy thriller)
    Malcolm X
    Remember the Titans (coach of recently integrated HS football team)
    American Gangster (Frank Lucas, the heroin king of NY)
    Hurricane (Ruben 'Hurricane' Carter -- the wrongfully convicted boxer Bob Dylan sang about)
    Out of Time (I really liked this one :) )
    He Got Game (convict father of basketball superstar)
    Cry Freedom (about Steve Bilko in Apartheid South Africa)


    He is the opposite of Johnny Depp -- does an amazing job playing real people (fictional ones too)


    Clint Eastwood has some good non-western stuff. I loved him in A Perfect World and Absolute Power.

    Saw Malcolm X (great) but don't know any of the others. Two things that I give ZERO fracks about are baseball and the Civil War.
