Prepare to get Taken for the ride of your life! "Liam Neeson is an unstoppable force" (Premier) in this action-packed international thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. When his estranged teenage daughter (Maggie Grace) is kidnapped in Paris, a former spy (Neeson) sets out to find her at any cost.

My Thoughts:

No random pick tonight.... I picked Taken. I've heard from just about everyone who watched this how great it was and I have to agree.

Already a huge Liam Neeson fan to begin with, seeing him in an action film of this magnitude brings his game to a whole new level. He has had many tremendous dramatic roles in his career and yet he flawlessly makes the transition to action star... and a great one. I hope to see more from him. The ruthless edge to his character makes this movie so memorable and a keeper in anyone's collection with unlimited rewatchability. The human trafficking theme has been a popular one on screen these past 5 or so years but most of them have been of the dramatic variety.... good, but not nearly as memorable as Taken.

One of the best movies I've watched this year.  :yahoo:

Mallrats, a review by Tom




Title: Mallrats
Year: 1995
Director: Kevin Smith
Rating: R
Length: 95 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85
Audio: English: Dolby Digital 5.1, French: Dolby Digital Surround, Commentary: Dolby Digital Surround
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Shannen Doherty
Jeremy London
Jason Lee
Claire Forlani
Ben Affleck

Plot:
From Kevin Smith, the acclaimed director of Clerks, comes this outrageous story of two loafers, Jeremy London (The Babysitter) and Jason Lee (Kissing a Fool), who spend way too much time hanging out at the mall.

When Brodie (Lee) is dumped by his girlfriend, Shannen Doherty (Heathers, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun), he retreats to the mall with his best friend T.S. (London), whose girlfriend has also left him. Between brooding and visits to the food court, the unmotivated twosome decide to win their girlfriends back with the help of the ultimate delinquents, Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and Jay (Jason Mewes), whose continuing adventures take the word "nuisance" to a whole new level.

Extras:
8 Page Booklet
Closed Captioned
Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Multi Angle

My Thoughts:
The most underated Kevin Smith movie (even by Smith himself). There are a lot of laughs in this one. And the Stan Lee cameo is great. This movie was the first acting role of Jason Lee and one of the first roles for Ben Affleck.
Also fun to see Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee together in a scene. Ten years later they play brothers on the TV series "My Name Is Earl".

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom


     Drawn Together: Season One (2004/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:152 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:


Plot:
It's DRAWN TOGETHER, the show that finally answers the question which has plagued mankind since the beginning of time and stuff: Can cartoon characters coexist peacefully?

DRAWN TOGETHER, TV's first animated reality show, follows the exploits of eight characters from across the animated universe living together in a house with a thousand cameras and unlimited access to booze, hot tubs and hand grenades.

You'll soil your pants in delight as you witness the entertertaining and morally deplorable exploits of the mystery-solving musician, the superhero, the fat chick, and many, many more (by which we mean five more).


Drawn Together
1.01 Hot Tub (2004-10-27)
Writer: Dave Jeser (Created By), Matt Silverstein (Created By), Matt Silverstein (Writer), Dave Jeser (Writer)
Director: Peter Avanzino
Cast: Adam Carolla ( (voice)), Jess Harnell ( (voice)), Abbey McBride ( (voice)), Jack Plotnick ( (voice)), Tara Strong ( (voice)), Cree Summer ( (voice)), James Arnold Taylor ( (voice))

"The first animated reality TV show". It's a celebrity Big Brother version with parodies of famous cartoon characters. My favourite is Princess Clara, the Disney princess parody.
The first episode is a good introduction to the characters. I enjoyed the series though I felt that it ran out of ideas in season three.
