The original Taken was an unexpected hit, so of course the studio is going to ride this thing out to squeeze every last dollar they can from tales of white girls getting kidnapped. So now we have Taken 2. But this time his wife gets kidnapped. In reality, this movie should have lasted five minutes and just have one scene where they’re at an Applebee’s and Liam Neeson takes all these bitches’ passports.
“You hear me, Hitler? I’ve made a list. I’ve checked it twice. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t let the Jews go, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. Then I will kill some wolves.”
Effectively bitch slapping Justin Timberlake, Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, and any other gaywad you can think of right in their effeminate face, director of
LIAM NEESON KICKS WOLF ASSThe Grey, Joe Carhahan, says Liam Neeson is still a viable action star because every young male actor in Hollywood is a preening little ladboy who still play with dolls. Film News UK reports:
“I don’t think it’s crazy when you have a town now that has put so much premium on boys instead of men. And has put so many shirtless 17-year-olds in front of the camera and tried to pass off as a masculine form,” he explained in an interview with Collider. “I have nothing against the younger generations, but I feel when I look in their eyes, I don’t see sh*t, man. I don’t see a life lived, I don’t see experience, I don’t see dirt under the nails, I don’t see loss, tragedy, you name it. “The reason that a guy like Liam, who’s nearly 60 years old who is having this resurgent kind of career swing is because we are sorely lacking in his ilk in this business right now.”
Honestly. You can’t get much more badass than Liam Neeson in Taken where he throat chopped his way to his kidnapped daughter. But if Robert Pattinson had starred in Taken at least we would have been able to see how effective a smolder and tears were against the Albanian mafia. Pretty damn effective I bet. Ladies?
In response to her untimely death at the age of 45 from a skiing accident, Natasha Richardson’s friends and colleagues have issued statements recalling her life and the affect she had on the lives of others. Us Magazine reports:
“Natasha is irreplaceable. I cannot think of anyone kinder, more generous, thoughtful, smarter or more fun. She is the godmother of two of my children. The Neesons and Vanessa [Redgrave, Richardson's mother] have always made me feel a part of their wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.”
Lindsay Lohan, Richardson’s costar in 1998′s The Parent Trap:
“She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own. I didn’t see much of her over the years, but I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss.”
Demi Moore (via Twitter):
“I am sending out prayers for Natasha Richardson and her family. A real reminder of how precious life is and how quickly it can be gone.”
Martha Stewart (via Twitter):
“Just heard the tragic news about poor Natasha Richardson. Her family must be devastated. My sincerest condolences to all.”
“I can’t talk because I started crying. I’m heart broken. She was so kind to us when Bruce [Paltrow, Danner's late husband] was ill. She’s so generous. I don’t think that I can handle it.”
By all accounts Natasha Richardson was a genuinely kind and generous person who was involved in a Hollywood marriage that was bound by sincere love and mutual respect, so we are terribly sorry for her family’s loss. I’m also sorry that Lindsay Lohan still manages to stay alive. I mean, she should be dead by now right? Vodka and speedballs aren’t vitamins, right? If there was any justice in this world, an anvil would drop on this bitch’s head while she was walking over a manhole and it would hit her so hard she would shoot out of the ground in China where she would be raped by a Panda then thrown off the side of a mountain. You know, or something like that. This is more of a rough draft really.
EVEN MORE TRAGIC UPDATE: The first ambulance was turned away because Richardson showed no signs of injury. Wow.
