Sound o noise
This is it folks – the final list for the year! And as always we’ve saved the best for last with a gaggle of ten of the most original, romantic, brutal, disgusting and thoughtful films to ever grace the vast silver screen. (Or at least the 2012 multiplex mini-screens!) And while there were a gaggle of year-end heavy hitters that missed ("Lincoln" way too long, "Zero Dark Thirty" not enough Bigelow style and "Django Unchained" seriously uneven!), flicks designed for the smart set that came up short ("Beasts of the Southern Wild" had hidden meaning yes, but still needs to be a good movie f...

‘Taken 2’ Still Stimulating Despite Absurdity

Bryan Mills with gun
No matter how stressful driving lessons with your parents might have been, they can't even compare to the ones Kim Mills (Maggie Grace) must endure in "Taken 2." If you saw "Taken," then you already know how anal retentive and protective her ex-spy father Bryan (Liam Neeson) is. Heck, after she was kidnapped by Albanian sex traffickers in that film, he pieced together clues to swiftly rescue her, leaving an enormous pile of dead bodies in his wake. That being the case, he's definitely not the kind of overbearing guy you'd want giving you automotive instruction.

Why are driving lessons even...

Liam Neeson Won't Be Back For 'Taken 3'

October 5th, 2012 9:36pm EDT
Liam Neeson
Liam Neeson won't be back as action man Bryan Mills in a third Taken movie - because the first sequel's director can't imagine there's anywhere for his kidnap expert character to go.

The Irish actor originally signed on to play Mills in Taken because he was intrigued by the script and thrilled by the prospect of working with French filmmaker Luc Besson, who created his character.

Neeson expected the film to go straight to DVD, but it became an unexpected hit in 2008 and now the sequel is expected to debut at the top of the box office this weekend as film experts predict a third movie.

'Taken 2' Review: A Super Exciting, But At Times, An Unintentionally Funny Sequel

October 5th, 2012 1:05pm EDT
'Taken 2'
'Taken 2', a sequel to the very highly successful 2008 film, 'Taken' which made 230 million dollars, once again stars the very tall, very talented, Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, ex CIA agent extraordinaire.

The film has great action, edge of your seats thrills and many...unintentional, funny moments that had me LMAO.

For example...(don't worry this isn't a SPOILER)...During one very intense scene in the film, Bryan is on the phone with his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace) who's hiding from the bad guys in their hotel room. He tells her to...'Grab a couple of grenades, a couple of guns but as...

October 2nd, 2012 3:03pm EDT
Liam Neeson in Taken
Liam Neeson has played thoughtful and sensitive in movies like Kinsey, or romantic in Love Actually but we love him best when he's slinging swords or kicking butt.

Since he's reprising his role of ex-CIA man Bryan Mills in this week's rip-roaring sequel Taken 2, we thought we'd refresh your memory on just how big of a badass this 60-year-old Irishman really is before you watch him blow away Albanians for two hours.

Note: Due to badass violence, badass language, and general badassery, viewer discretion is advised.
