This hypothetical musical about Liam Neeson would easily be one of the most dramatic and successful Broadway sensations of our time. I mean, dude was a Jedi Knight, Grecian god and was hunted by a pack of wild wolves.
This musical, which was created and edited by Jon and Al Kaplan (Conan the Barbarian: The Musical, Off-Broadway’s Silence! The Musical) remind us that every season is Neeson season. We’re basically going to find these guys, wherever they are in the world and give them a gigantic high five.
If Liam Neeson: The Musical was a real thing, I’d totally watch it.
Watch it here:
While I enjoyed the movie Taken, I have a bad viewing history with it. It was released just before my friends and I went on a month long backpacking trip across Europe and my parents became convinced Paris was full of criminals trafficking third year university students.
While my parents are pretty cool, they don’t have Mission Impossible skills like Liam Neeson, which added another level of concern. Old Liam NEVER loses his cool in the movie even when the odds are stacked against him. If it was any other parent in the universe they might act differently. This dude, Captain Hippo wanted to investigate what would happen if a real dad was put in that situation. They couldn’t find any, so they used their own. The result is a meatball loving dude who has to decide between watching the next episode of Home Improvement and rescuing his son from the bad guys.
Well, he gives it his best shot.

I argued with the male (obvs) co-workers in my office that the amount of vengeful misfortune that befalls this one man is highly unlikely. But in the end, who cares if it’s unrealistic because now we get the second instalment of Taken, the franchise that scares the bejuice out of parents everywhere and makes them disuade their offspring from EVER travelling alone.
Anyway, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills travels to Istanbul, where the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter seeks revenge. The bedraggled father goes after Mills’ wife and precious daughter, who seems incredibly chipper considering she was recently coerced into a prostitution ring.
When it comes down to it you just don’t mess with Bryan Mills, or really any character played by Liam Neeson. The film, which also stars Maggie Grace and Rade Sherbedgia opens on Oct. 5.

Here’s the deal andPOP monsters, we don’t often do movie reviews on the site but after seeing Battleship I just had to sound off… as much as I don’t want to think about the movie anymore.
When I was a kid my friends and I had Battleship marathons on rainy play dates, so I knew the game’s concept wouldn’t translate to the screen without some serious creativity. Hit and sink, hit and sink. That’s pretty much the gist of the game.
So I’m not surprised that the movie version of Battleship has absolutely no substance. Ultimately, it comes off as a two hour commercial for Hasbro, which naturally backed Transformers and G.I. Joe too. If you like high action movies that have more explosions than dialogue see Battleship, however, if you’re tired of formulaic scripts that rely on clichéd one-liners and fancy effects, stay home and play the game instead.
Director Peter Berg attempts to modernize the game (which predates WWI) by introducing an armada of aliens who threaten the world after NASA tries to make contact with them. When the aliens receive the satellite signal, instead of being all like “hey, let’s party” they go full Michael Bay.
Is Usher really so popular that he just HAD to text someone during Saturday Night Live?Here he stands, among Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson, and all that’s going through his mind is: “Nah, I’ve got better things to do.” Usher performed “Scream” and “Climax” to the audience last Saturday and also made an appearance in one of the skits to celebrate 100 digital shorts on SNL. Is this a douchebag move or are people reading too much into it?
Radar Online is reporting that former president Bill Clinton has shot a cameo for The Hangover 2. Clinton joined the film’s stars Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper in Thailand this weekend to shoot a few short scenes for the upcoming flick.
Clinton delivered a speech on clean energy in Bangkok before joining the boys on set.
Bill Clinton was a way better choice for a cameo than Mel Gibson. Plus, with all due respect, Clinton seems like the kind of guy that knows how to party.
We can’t wait to see the movie now!
