This Week at Cinemagogue: Kate, Liam, & going Haywire

You could choose between a leather-clad vampire or an MMA fighter to see women overturning evil government plots with guns, fists, teeth and plenty of action last weekend. This week, we’ll feature reviews of both Underworld: Awakening (Tuesday) and Haywire (Thursday).

This weekend, however, belongs entirely to Liam Neeson as he goes all Wolverine with travel-size bottles, taking on wolves and snow and, well, I guess nature itself in The Grey. Whether he’s wielding a lightsaber, ripping up Paris, training Batman or leading the A-Team, we just can’t seem to get enough of Liam Neeson kicking ass and taking names. About the only thing left for him to tackle, wrestle and dominate was the very elements themselves. So, in light of that, we’re officially declaring this Liam Neeson Week!

My wife and I just revisited Taken, Neeson’s 2008 hard-edged thriller written by Luc Besson and directed by Pierre Morel. Cinemagogue celebrated this action flick with a written review series, and we hosted a showing of the film followed by commentary as well (captured on audio). Refresh yourself with our Irishman and his fisticuffs (and the way it highlights our hopes deep hopes for father/hero) in preparation for this weekend’s perfect storm of man versus environment. Not to mention – in case you didn’t know – in preparation for Taken 2, coming in October…

    And then he’s got Battleship and Warth of the Titans. He’s keeping busy. This might be Neeson year, especially if he gets even a tiny cameo in The Dark Knight Rises.
