If you listen to the show regularly, you’ve heard my impression of Liam Neeson, he appears to be in the news frequently because he’s in every other movie that comes out these days.
Fact is, I used to not really be a fan of Neeson’s..he never played the lead in a movie before Schindler’s List that I could take seriously . He had small roles in some of my old school favorites like EXCALIBUR , THE MISSION and KRULL, but DARKMAN was the first starring role I saw..and honestly I thought that movie was pretty stupid (sorry fans).
He was great in SCHINDLERS LIST..but after that he made two movies I despised; BEFORE AND AFTER (made in Massachusetts) and..ahem..get ready..STAR WARS EPISODE I THE PHANTOM MENACE. Granted he did what he could in that one..at least the dreadful THE HAUNTING had a hot CATHERINE ZETA-JONES.
Moving on however, he’s really made a comeback the past decade or so starring in several movies I thoroughly enjoyed. BATMAN BEGINS, GANGS OF NEW YORK, LOVE ACTUALLY (guilty pleasure chick flick), and of course…TAKEN. A recent favorite THE GREY is out on Blu-Ray and DVD..I highly recommended that one on the show when it was in theaters.
I wasn’t particularly a fan of CLASH OF THE TITANS, didn’t see the WRATH sequel, and honestly…didn’t see THE A-TEAM.
LIAM appears to still plugging along with his muddled American accent impression (He’s actually Irish) in two huge movies still to come this year this summers DARK KNIGHT RISES and..not surprisingly TAKEN 2. Yes I’ll be there for both.
I’ve included for your enjoyment three of my favorite LIAM NEESON moments; the phone call from the kidnappers in TAKEN, a HILARIOUS comedy scene from HBO’s LIFE’s TOO SHORT, and a scene from THE GREY.

Paul Curran & the Taken speech!
I had to laugh when a man on Britain's Got More Talent impersonated Liam Neeson in the Taken phone scene. BGT contestant Paul Curran acted out the threatening speech but the judges weren’t impressed. But do they know what makes a great actor? I bet if Neeson auditioned for the talent show he wouldn't be taken seriously either...
