81st Academy Awards

I know it has been a few weeks since I posted a review. Being busy and February not being a big month for movies made it a bit slow. I do want to see Coraline in 3D, if i get a chance this week I will go, but I hear that that is going to be done this week for the Jonas Brothers 3D Concert (I hope that isn't true).

The 81st Academy Awards were on last night. I only saw a few minutes of it. I am happy they gave best supporting actor to Heath Ledger. To see a list of winners click here! Hugh Jackman's opening was funny too (hopefully they don't take the video off You Tube)!

New reviews coming very soon. Thanks for reading.

Taken is the most recent take on the kidnapping movie. It follows Liam Neeson's character after his daughter is kidnapped in Paris. He plays a retired CIA "preventer" who takes finding his daughter into his own hands.

The film isn't anything original and is predictable at times. It is a good movie for some good old butt kicking, and Neeson is bad ass. The fight scenes reminded me of the Bourne trilogy in the cinematography, and that is not a bad thing. The beginning I felt moved a little slow, but that is because I was looking forward to the butt kicking and didn't care about the character development of the film.
