Creepy Albanian bastards

Posted: February 11, 2009 in Uncategorized

I watched Prince of Egypt again today. The last time I watched that 1988 cartoon-movie was when I was about 10, so I couldn’t really remember much besides the sea-parting scene and the fun songs.
There’s something just so wunnerful about watching things that link you to your childhood.

If you haven’t already watched the Oscar-winning movie, it’s basically the life of Prophet Moses during the reign of the ev0l Pharoah and all that jazz, through an awesomely entertaining angle than a religious one.
So it’s immensely enjoyable whether you’re religious or not.

Helen Mirren, Sandra Bullock, Ralph Fiennes, are just some of the bigshots voicing the characters, and Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston sing a fabulouso When You Believe when the credits roll.
If you don’t get a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end of this movie, you just have no heart OK.
NO HEART AT ALL.

Anyhoo, there were no creepy Albanian bastards in Prince of Egypt. Which brings me to my subject. Taken. Excellenté!
The movie, starring Liam Neeson, is every parent’s horrifying nightmare. His daughter is, well, obviously, taken. By creepy Albanian bastards. And…

*mild spoiler alert*

We are plunged into the grim reality of the sex trafficking/sex slavery system in underground Paris. Any sort of warm and fuzzyness from the the cartoon movie evaporated during Taken.

The movie might have to sacrifice a few points in terms of credibility though. Liam Neeson sort of kills shitloads of creepy Albanian people single-handedly during his quest to find his daughter.

But that can sorta be compensated by the fact that he was once one of those super-trained spyish security fellows and also by the fact that his savvy moves during fight scenes and the sounds of bones getting crushed are just fucking cool.

Also, the movie has made me RLY paranoid about weird-accent-ed people who say hi to me. You will understand once you watch.

Definitely a fast-paced action movie, with a pinch of emotion thrown in for good measure in sense of the whole daughter-father thing, and packed with some lovely nail-biting sequences.
Superman dad kicks Albanian-French asses to save daughter from evil foreigners.
How much cooler can a plot get?

Rating: 8.5/10

Oh, and behold a few sillyass glimpses from yesterday’s partay!

Moi, perfecting my sand-castle/cake/rotund ship.

The evil people destroyed it. Whaaayyy?!?
