    • Just saw Choke. It was very good, it obviously did not compare to fight club, and also did not stay as true to the story, as apparently Palahniuk did not have as much involvement in this one. I particularily liked the actor who Ida.

          • and I was right, don't **** with Qui-Gon.

            I do have some questions for Xon.
            1. How did it change your life?
            2. Do YOU think Qui-Gon's performance merit's oscars?

                I am with Bruce Banner. He was more badass as Qui-Gon.

                • Hmmm, maybe it's just because I liked Batman Begins so much more than the Phantom Menace.

                  • By the way to avoid confusion.

                    I refer to Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon, so when I said, "do you think Qui-Gon's performance merits oscars?", I meant, "Do you think Liam Neeson's performance in the movie Taken merits oscars?".

                      1. Well, maybe I'm just paranoid. But today my best friend called me to go to a party at the house of someone I didn't know. He said it was wild and great, but in the backround, the music came and went, and it didn't sound full at all. So I got all supersticious. Guess what, I didn't go... lol

                      It also made me really open my eyes on how evil, crude and just nasty prostitution is. I always said that once I grew kinda old, enough not to get laid I'd use hookers, ehh not anymore. And it showed me just how stupid girls can get because of what their friends do or say... I always knew this but damn this movie made me realize.

                      2. Eh... tough call, I haven't seen many movies this year, but I say yes. There was just one scene when he calls the people who took her daughter and tells them about him which was kind of, like, stupid... but the rest was good. I bought the acting. His expression and everything was very good, but Heath Ledger was too good... simply perfect, but Qui Gon was very good too.

                        I find it refreshing now that the Dark Knight hype is dying down.

                          Ledger and Neeson will be in to seperate catagories academy award wise if what I understand is correct and Liam Neeson is indeed the star of Taken.

                            Liam Neeson is the star. Its basically his movie.

                              That is what I figured. Which means that Ledger will not be his competition come Oscar time. This is kind of off topic but it is too bad that the academy does not really give out noms to a whole lot of straight comedic performances because Craig Robinson should for sure get a supporting nom for Zack and Miri Make a Porno. He gives one of the funniest performances I have ever seen.

                              • Neeson won't even get nominated. (Despite my enjoyment)

                                (Critic mode)

                                The movie's pace was ridiculous. Limited character development. Cookie cutter action movie vibe from start to finish. You'd think Neeson was told to be an old Jason Statham.
