On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews The Equalizer!  Is it faithful to the 80’s television series on which it’s based?  Does it have to be?  Is it among Denzel Washington’s best action films?  Is it merely another violent thriller in the vein of Taken?  Does it bear a striking resemblance to another Denzel Washington thriller, Man on Fire?  Are the similarities between the two films merely superficial?  Is Antione Fuqua one of today’s more competent action directors? 

We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino’s breakthrough film, Pulp Fiction!  Is it still the post-modern classic that we all remember?  Did it single handedly bring independent cinema to the forefront?  Could it possibly be the single most overrated film in the Tarantino cannon?  Did it begin a modern day renaissance of crime cinema?  Was it the single most original film of its era?  Did it revitalize American cinema?  Can its influence still be felt today?  Just how much did Roger Avery contribute to the Oscar-winning screenplay?  Does it contain Samuel L. Jackson’s single best performance?
