Liam Neeson, IRL and the movies, throat punching his way through life.
 
2012-10-05 02:44:54 PM  
After that the kid was Taken 2 detention
 
2012-10-05 03:13:59 PM  
He is a very dark man, with a particular set of skills.
 
2012-10-05 03:16:09 PM  
I highly doubt that.
 
2012-10-05 03:21:38 PM  
In Ireland in the 1970s, the only reprimand a teacher could get for punching a student would be for not following up the jab.
 
2012-10-05 04:38:15 PM  
Gosh, what are the odds that a former teenage boxing champion would punch out a wiseass teenager?
 
2012-10-05 04:39:08 PM  
Yeah, but he was a kindergarten teacher.

Sometimes They Come Back, AKA Taken 2

New Rule: From now on, all of Liam Neeson's movies must be titled,
"I'm Going to Hunt You Down and Kill You."

That was the most sincere interview I've seen on ESPN... until "What should I do if my son is taken" part.
 
2012-10-05 04:45:25 PM  
He's Irish, what else do you expect?

Liam Neeson may have my favorite career arc of any actor. He stared out as sort of the movie equivalent of a Shakespearean actor, Schidler's List/Ethan Frome type stuff to let your filmography professor know how refined you are.

Then he basically had a mid-life crisis or just got too old for this shiat, decided to have fun instead, and signed up with George Lucas. And he's been having a ball doing nothing but stunt-work and scowling ever since. Including having a shattered-glass-fueled fist-fight with a medieval European direwolf that magically teleported to Alaska for some reason.

Basically, I hope I enjoy myself as much as he does when I'm old and tired of my current job.
 
2012-10-05 04:48:44 PM  
Knife? no, he just called him a dick.
 
2012-10-05 04:51:20 PM  
That article was like pulling a rusty knife on readers. Punch the tard who wrote it.

But Liam is a bad ass. He used to be a boxer and was pretty good, for a white guy.

And he used to box, so that probably A. took the kid completely by surprise and B. hurt like MF-er. And good on him for doing it. I bet that little punk thinks twice about getting all macho and bullying from that moment until the day he dies.

Not really. He started out by spending about ten years doing supporting roles and stuff like Darkman. Then he hit his high drama period.
 
2012-10-05 04:57:59 PM  
Could this guy be any more awesome? I'm almost tempted to see this sequel twice.
 
2012-10-05 05:01:25 PM  
These days he'd be sued and the kid would win the lawsuit.

A normal conversation at my house:

Me: Honey, the new Liam Neeson movie is out today.

Honey: Which one is that?

Me: Liam Neeson Punches Stuff Again.

Honey: Wasn't that out a few months ago?

Me: No, no, that was Liam Neeson Punches Wolves.

Honey: He didn't punch anything in Batman, right?

Me: Nah, but he still kicked ass. Mmm, Liam Neeson in a suit...

Honey: In the mood, babe?

Me: Oooooooh, yeah.

Every school should have the designated alpha male "bad cop" who's allowed to pop a fresh one on the kids who get out of line.

(csb) My parents taught in an elementary school where legend had it that my dad, a couple of the other older male teachers, and the principal were grandfathered out of the no-corporal-punishment rule because they'd been in the war. Worked for me. By all rights my nerdy scrawny asthmatic ass should've been a given for weekly ass-kickings but nobody started any shiat until I moved up to middle school. (/csb)

I thought he used to be an actor.

Um, you do remember him as a Farting ghost in High Spirits don't you? You know with Steve Guttenberg.

it's the accent. irish accent is a season ticket on the commuter train to pussy-ville.

To quote the great pundit Jenna Marbles, what was that sound? It's the sound of me throwing my underwear across the room.

From Wikipedia:

At age nine, Neeson began boxing lessons at the All Saints Youth Club, and later became Ulster amateur senior boxing champion.[

Also:

Neeson was enrolled in 1971 as a physics and computer science undergraduate student at Queen's University Belfast in Belfast, Northern Ireland, before leaving to work for the Guinness Brewery. 

I need to have a beer with Mr. Neeson.

He was sword fighting in Rob Roy way before Star Wars and all that other shiat.

I think Liam Neeson also used to be a boxer. So that makes more sense in light of that.

Rob Roy is still, hands down, my favorite Liam Neeson movie.

For an Irishman he makes a damn fine Scotsman.

He tried to teach that kid a particular set of skills....with his fist.

From what I've heard, he could have dropped his pants to intimidate the poor bastard as well. We're talking Milton Berle caliber.

Is it really such a huge thing? I have a similar accent to his, which kinda explains the uptick in my lovelife.

I don't know if i'd call him a 'hero' without more information... For all we know, he did something to the kid which warranted a knife being pulled on him, then he additionally punched the kid out.

And one of the more realistic sword fights put to film. Awesome scene against Tim Roth.
 
2012-10-05 08:43:50 PM  
That scene against Tim Roth in Rob Roy is one of the best scenes ever filmed in any movie about anything evar.

EVAR.

Imma let you finish....
