A movie or two

I got Taken from Netflix last night. Hey, it isn't bad. Mostly because Liam Neeson is just awesome. In his review, Roger Ebert gets it just right, if the movie description (former spook Neeson flies to Paris to rescue his estranged daughter from white slavers) sounds good, you will like it, if you are rolling your eyes, avoid it. There is definitely some Jack Bauer action, but I greatly enjoyed Neeson's cold determination and his positively frigid dispatch of his foes. His dismissive line to a betrayer is a classic.

In other film news, Steven Soderbergh is making a plague movie with some big names.
