    I’m sorry – I’m so distracted by that photo that I can’t think straight. Denzel has been in more frickin’ movies than I have time to watch. So I have only seen a handful of these on your list – some of them I recognize the plot but have no idea the name since I didn’t see it. But here are the ones I’m sure of:
    #1 = Glory
    #2 = The Hurricane
    #3 = Remember The Titans
    #4 = Malcolm X
    #5 = The Pelican Brief
    #8 = The Book of Eli
    #12 = Training Day (best Denzel EVER)
    Bonus = Training Day

    You’re missing one of my faves – the attorney in Philadelphia – and your hint could have been Antonio Banderas ;0)
