Face Off: Bryan Mills (Taken) vs. R'as al Ghul (Batman Begins)

In last week's Face-Off column , dueling 1997 volcano movies had a rumble, and while I determined that VOLCANO was the bigger blast, more of you decided DANTE'S PEAK packed a bigger punch. This weekend has Liam Neeson back on the big screen (reuniting with his UNKNOWN director Jaume Collet-Serra), this time kicking ass at 30,000 feet in the airline thriller NON-STOP . We all know...

Neeson may be joined by Forest Whitaker this time around, adding some additional star power to what was previously a one man show. No word on plot but expect to see Maggie...

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Taken 2, The Possession, To Rome With Love ...

This week: Taken 2 gets taken behind the shed, Woody Allen goes from Paris to Rome, and another of those spoof movies we love so much. ► A big reason so many people liked 'Taken' is that it felt different from today’s generic action movies: Coherent fight scenes, less hyper editing, a gripping story. All things missing...

Taken 2 director Olivier Megaton to helm true story Taking Gotham about a secret anti-robbery squad of the NYPD

Olivier Megaton , who still has what is possibly the best name in the business regardless of his critical rep (which isn't good), is sticking with the dual themes of things being taken and the systematic hunt for said taken things for his next directing gig.  Hot off of the financial success of TAKEN 2, which made $363 million off a budget of $45 million, Megaton has signed on to...

Hilarious "truth" movie posters including Magic Mike, The Hobbit, John Carter, The Hunger Games, and more!

The fine folks over at The Shiznit have rounded up a new batch of "truth" movie posters for the year and they're pretty damn awesome.  While I may not dislike the movies featured here, I can't deny the hard smack of honesty that's presented here.  I mean, I loved JOHN CARTER , but that love isn't going to change the fact that it sunk like, well, a giant turd.  The rest are...

Would you want to see Liam Neeson return for Taken 3?

I was thinking about going with the obvious pun and titling this article something akin to "how do you feel about being Taken a third time," but that seemed a little on the nose and judgmental considering the reviews.  Of course now I'm telling you about it, so you know what I think anyway and it's too late now. I should also add that this is probably going to piss you off. ...

Cool Videos: Liam Neeson gets a new theme and catchphrase with Neeson Season!

Holy shit, I'm not lying when I tell you that this is one of the funniest Cool Videos I've seen in a while.  As star Liam Neeson takes on mythical levels of badassery that are set to take over the rein of Chuck Norris, this video mash-up may well push him over the edge.  I had to watch it twice as this is just a brilliantly hilarious video.  I'm sure there will be a few...

Cool Videos: Liam Neeson strips to his underoos for cancer research

Well, this is one way to promote TAKEN 2. If anything, the 60 year old Neeson may have locked up the female demographic for the box office tally this weekend.
