    Review: Waterlogged 'Battleship' Is A Cynical, Nonsensical & Boring Blockbuster

    Expectations are a tricky thing with films. In an age where every teaser, trailer, teaser-for-a-trailer, poster and publicity still are pored over endlessly, many go into a film thinking they know what they'll think afterwards. This can lead to hopes being crushed, or sometimes, for a film that you'...

    First Look: Liam Neeson Gets Badass Again In 'Taken 2'

    As it turns out, he still has a very particular set of skills. It's nearly four years since Liam Neeson action vehicle "Taken" became a surprise worldwide smash-hit: the Luc Besson-produced film made more than $200 million worldwide, which was particularly impressive given its meager $25 million bud...

    Jaume Collet-Serra To Direct Liam Neeson To Punch People On A Plane In 'Non-Stop'

    It may not have been everybody’s cup of tea, but Jaume Collet-Serra’s 2009 film "Orphan" was bold and bonkers enough that it made us sit up and pay a little more attention to the director, whose previous efforts had been a “House of Wax” remake and “Goal II: L...

    Liam Neeson To Punch People, But In The Sky, In Dark Castle Thriller 'Non-Stop'

    When he’s not punching wolves with shards of glass taped to his hands in “The Grey,” rescuing his daughter with his “particular set of skills” in “Taken,” or locked in a brutal battle in “Wrath of the Titans,” we imagine that actor Liam Neeson is probably a nice guy. Though as you can see from the s...

    Wrath Of The Titans—movie review

    I remember feeling a certain amount of wrath over the ham-handed 3-D effects in 2010’s 'Clash of the Titans', but the film itself wasn’t bad: uneven, to be sure, but strengthened by adhering to the story template of the 1981 movie of the same name, written by Beverley Cross.

    Gervais Skewers Fame in Life's Too Short, With Tall Guest Liam Neeson

    No one is smarter or funnier at tweaking celebrity than Ricky Gervais, and if you loved the inexhaustible wit of Extras as I did, you will probably also love his new HBO series Life’s Too Short, even though it doesn’t revolve around Gervais himself. Created by Davis, Gervais and his...
