Review: Cold Pursuit

Liam Neeson is a very accomplished actor with an extraordinary acting range and physical talent. It's a shame that ever since his appearance in 2008's Taken, he's basically been in the same role film after film. That is certainly underselli...

Review: The Commuter

The header image above isn’t even from The Commuter, that’s how ubiquitous images of Liam Neeson holding a gun on a train have become. Actually, it is from The Commuter, here’s the one that’s not. Actually...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back gets an even shorter trailer

Possibly owing to the 24-hour news coverage of the Olympics, Paramount has released a new and improved (read: less to watch) spot for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. It's basically a condensed, possibly less powerful version of the original th...

Taken 4 trailer is here

With the success of Taken 3 (do not listen to Sean it is a terrible movie and a waste of your money) we all have to ask why the hell we keep seeing really bad movies. We also have to expect that despite the third film claiming to be t...

 
 
Tak3n Trailer photo

First Tak3n trailer lacks anything getting taken

After Taken 2 was easily the most disappointing thing to hit movie screens in years (Sean's review is far too kind) and Liam Neeson came out saying he probably wouldn't do another I was pretty happy that we wouldn't be seeing another ...

Taken 3 will officially be titled Tak3n

Pack it up, everyone. We can now officially declare this the greatest sequel of all time. Tak3n releases January 9, 2015. But sadly we can't make up funny titles anymore :(  Feel free to make up funny captions for the new images below....

Second trailer for Getaway gets away with nothing

If Ethan Hawke is the thunder and Selena Gomez is the lightning, does everything come naturally in this second trailer for Getaway? Is their team up meant to be? Regardless of whether or not it actually is, this second trailer doesn't real...

Fox wants to make Taken 3 to take all of your money

Although its main badass Liam Neeson thinks the Taken franchise has been taken too far, looks like we're getting more of them whether we like it or not. In an interview with Hollywood.com, pie chart extravaganza Taken 2 writer Robert M...

Liam Neeson admits Taken franchise has run its course

The first Taken was an experience. Somehow all of the stars aligned and made the whole thing so badass, that we're getting a sequel. Admittedly the sequel has an intriguing premise (bad guys are angry and Neeson for being so badass tha...

Trailer: Taken 2

Liam Neeson doesn't take kindly to people who don't watch Taken 2 trailers, and says so himself in his introduction to this latest one. It's a wonderfully silly touch, and hopefully signals that the previous movie's (very) dark sense of hu...

Flix for Short: 'Taken' with a Real Dad

Remember that cool looking trailer for Taken 2? This is ten times better than that. Actually, Taken with a Real Dad is better than the Taken franchise will ever be. The awesome people over at Captain Hippo took the semi-badass, semi-r...

Trailer: Taken 2

Taken was a hysterical French critique of President George W. Bush's foreign policy and perceived xenophobia, told through the international language of relentless violence and sex emperors. It was very much of its time, with Bush's presid...

Trailer: Taken 2

Here is the international trailer for Taken 2: The Sequel. The revenge is set up, Famke Janssen is put in peril, and there is a brief display of mad skills. There is also a phone call of some kind, but the spiel is to the point. Perhaps Ne...

Taken 2: Take Harder coming Oct. 12. Other films dated

No, it's not actually called Taken 2: Take Harder. I just wanted to come up with a movie title more ridiculous than this one. Anyone who is a fan of Taken has been waiting quite a while now for the sequel to get off the ground, but with Nee...
