Enemy Of The State
When people talk about Will Smith classics, they tend to forget this gem. Before smartphones and social media took over the world, this suspense thriller predicted the downfall of privacy and freedom based on the advancement of technology. Will Smith and Gene Hackman attempt to outsmart the government after Smith’s life is destroyed by officials who believe he can thwart their plans of surveillance domination.
Before Will Smith and Margot Robbie were Deadshot and Harley Quinn, they starred in this comedy/crime drama together.

Their plans of fortune become entangled with their romantic relationship, leading to a confusing yet fulfilling story that keeps you guessing until the end.
I Am Legend
If you haven’t seen this movie, you must live under a rock. Will Smith plays one of the last surviving humans on Earth in the film based on the novel of the same name. The real star of this film is Smith’s dog, and even the most heartless person in the world will be jarred by how this movie plays out.
You think you’re having a bad day? Try being Denzel in this suspense thriller where murder, time travel, and romance lead to one of the worst days in the protagonist’s life. Denzel attempts to stop a bomb from killing a boat full of civilians by using a program that allows him to look into the past, but when he makes a vital discovery about the program, things take an insane turn.
One thing Denzel has always been good at, is playing a man drowning in his own vengeful agenda. The action in this movie is intense, and Denzel becomes somewhat of a vigilante after Chloë Grace Moretz is beaten to a bloody pulp by Russian mobsters. A sequel to The Equalizer is set to hit theaters this Summer, with Eminem featured in the cast.
Spike Lee and Denzel team up for this bank heist thriller. The all-star cast of this film includes Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Willem Dafoe, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. After several bank robbers initiate an intricate heist, the plot takes several twists when authorities find out that nothing is what it seems, and the robbers appear to be ten steps ahead of everyone else.
When Jadakiss rapped “Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it,” he must’ve forgotten that Washington won an Academy Award in 1990 for his role in this film. This emotional war epic focuses on an African-American military unit that fights for the Union against the Confederates in the Civil War.
Jamie Foxx is badass in this war drama based on true events that occurred in Saudi Arabia in the 90’s and early 00’s. Both Saudis and Americans team up to take down a group of terrorists who kill civilians and soldiers on both sides of the conflict, leading to strained relationships and suspenseful interactions.
Although Jamie is just a supporting actor/cameo in this film, every second that he’s on screen is amazing. Foxx plays a murder consultant to three men who plan to kill their bosses. This comedy spawned a sequel, in which Foxx is also irresistible to watch.
Foxx and Tom Cruise star in this Neo-Noir drama where Cruise steps out of his usual role and plays a villain. Foxx, a cab driver, becomes trapped by Cruise, who plays a hitman, and forced to help him complete a night of murders. Mark Ruffalo, aka The Hulk, makes an appearance in a film filled with action and plot twists.
