I gotta be honest and admit I’ve actually sort of lost count of how many manly/action movies Liam Neeson has been in. But at 68 is it time to hang it up? In an interview with ET this week, Neeson says:
“Oh, yeah. I think so. I’m 68 and a half. 69 this year. There’s a couple more I’m going to do this year – hopefully, COVID allowing us – there’s a couple in the pipeline and, then I think that will probably be it. Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something.
I’ve just finished one in Australia, and I had a fight scene with a kid – lovely, sweet actor called Taylor – and halfway through the fight I looked up, I was breathless, and it didn’t cost him a cent, and I said, ‘Taylor, what age are you?’ He said, ’25.’ I said, ‘That’s the age of my eldest son!’”
Mind you, this isn’t the first time he’s said this. I think he’ll keep doing this as long as his body permits.
A while back, a Twitter user opined that 2003’s Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World was a boring movie. He said: “Lots of folk complaining about lack of sleep during the Pandemic. May I recommend Master And Commander starring the usually captivating, attention-grabbing Russell Crowe. I’ve never made it past the ten-minute mark. You’re welcome. And thanks Russell.”
This weekend Crowe took to Twitter to respond to the man’s opinion, saying:
“That’s the problem with kids these days. No focus. Peter Weir’s film is brilliant. An exacting, detail-oriented, epic tale of fidelity to Empire & service, regardless of the cost. Incredible cinematography by Russell Boyd & a majestic soundtrack. Definitely an adults movie.”
It is a good movie by the way.
Well, here’s the trailer for the new Equalizer TV series…

Disbelief: Not suspended. Stay-at-home mothers beating up half the underworld; no.
A bit late on this, but for those who also missed it, it’s the trailer for Willie’s Wonderland starring Nicolas Cage.
Synopsis: A quiet drifter stranded in a remote town agrees to work as a night-shift janitor at Willy’s Wonderland, a once-successful abandoned family entertainment center. However, his tasks suddenly become an all-out fight for survival when the facility’s eight animatronic characters come to life and try to kill him. Now, teaming up with a group of teens who also find their way into the building, he is forced to defend himself in a desperate race to survive until morning.
There is no release date yet, although the film seems to have been a pre-Covid deal. Nicolas Cage versus demonic animatronics! Sold!

Will there be a Young Guns 3? Some signs point to… yes!
