"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money.

Big Flaws in Great Movies (7 movies items)

"Choice of targets Taken is almost the perfect action movie, but there is one huge problem. The slavers targeted girls who had enough money to vacation in Paris. Wouldn't abducting girls from families that have plenty of money attract attention? Victims from poor families in poor parts of the world would be a lot less likely to draw attention. Eidetic Memory Helena Soubeyrand's character had remarkable memories of her kidnapping for someone who had been heavily drugged. Of course, it's T"

"27.10. Netflix Tää olikin mukava yllätys. Dramaturgisesti odotetusti tietysti vähän kökkö, mutta lyhyen pohjustuksen ja vielä lyhyemmän lopetuksen väliin jäävä pitkä, käytännössä katkeamaton, toimintakohtaus on uskomattoman isopallista ja tiivistä vyörytystä. Huikea väkivaltafantasia."

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out.  Eventually, I have to agree, it was a solid and entertaining action flick, no doubt about it, but I still think it was rather overrated. The funny thing is that, somehow, I ended up watching it with my wife who argued that something like this was actually likely to happen to any young girl carelessly travelling through Europe. I was really amazed that she would believe something like this and, in fact, Liam Neeson himself told that it was actually a dumb action flick that someone would be rather stupid to take it really seriously. Anyway,  even though it was in fact a rather generic action flick, the masterstroke was obviously to have Liam Neeson playing the lead character. Indeed, before t” read more

Death By Stupidity (9 movies items)

"Amanda (Katie Cassidy) tells Peter, who she doesn't even know, that she and Kim would be alone in the apartment. Why didn't she give him a key while she was at it? Her stupidity makes it really hard, if not impossible, to have any sympathy for her."

Movies I Watched On An Airplaine (27 movies items)

"The film selections on my flight from Amsterdam *back* to Seattle (after my honeymoon) hadn't changed at all when my husband and I flew home two weeks later, so I was "stuck" watching movies that I'd already seen before. I first saw 'Taken' in the theater with my brother only a few months before I watched it on the plane; however, I didn't really mind watching it a second time on my flight home. It's a rather "mindless" thriller (and Liam Neeson's character is immortal to the point of being rid"
