cman: No A-Team?


He wasn't angry in that one.

The A-Team remake does however, rank as one of the best movies ever made.

Did he actually guilt the groundskeeper to committing suicide?  I thought he just did it so that the actual killers wouldn't get to him.

What about The Grey?! He was angry at wolves in that one, and it was pretty fun.

They are all tied for number 1. Only the titles are changed.

The Grey doesn't count as angry old dude? I mean he was suicidal and was pissed off at those wolves.

Was he really angry? I thought it was more depression and daddy issues.

SPOILER ALERT!!


He wasn't angry, he was depressed.  The ending scene spelled it all out.  He suddenly wanted to live again, or at least for down fighting.

TheHighlandHowler: He became an angry old dude after his wife died tragically.


More like he threw himself headlong into his work and will take just about any role so he doesn't have any downtime to dwell on the roaring emptiness inside

Is it really acting anymore? I mean, the guy just seems to be grumpy. and old. all the time.
 
2018-01-12 11:30:15 AM  
I like to think that he is really just "Old Jason Bourne" in all these movies.  Makes it more fun, especially when people don't realize that he is...

He's been playing grumpy, world-weary old men for his entire career. He's good at it and work is work.

Ticked me off in the trailer - Shot of Jonathan Banks (Ah! Another tough old fark. Gonna be good!) 

Next shot - Jonathan Banks being pushed in front of a bus. So much for that suspense.

Needs more The Grey. Also a little movie called THE A TEAM.

BalugaJoe: I like Darkman


There was a time, until say about 5 years ago, i considered it the best comic book movie ever made.   Some of the FX were chintzy, even upon release, so i'm not judging against it for that... its part of the charm...  but the film is still slightly dated from a film-making perspective.  Still would recommend it to any millenial.

I watched Darkman once. CSB

Of all those films, A Walk Among the Tombstones is the best "film." There's a lot less action in it than the others. It's darker, almost noir-ish. I enjoyed the hell out of the first Taken, but the sequels were just laughably bad. Nonstop made zero sense and I barely remember Unknown. As for The Grey, it doesn't belong here, IMO.

Seeing Darkman only once would be...
just fine
just fine
JUST FINE (hahahahaha)

Whoever wrote that must not realize he was angry before any of those films. Darkman was awesome and he was a lot angrier in that that any of the titles listed.  Title should be Fark headline and not angriest action action movies.
If I recall he went back to action movies because of his wife's illness and dying to cope with losing her.
 
2018-01-12 02:21:51 PM  
He was great as the hillbilly Briar Gates avenging his brother's killers in Next of Kin with Patrick Swayze. He wasn't angry old man, but an angry older brother. I think it was late 80's.

He's secretly David Banner?

Liam Neeson is incredibly hot. I would have a movie star crush on him except I keep seeing pictures of him that make it appear he's either spilled a drink in his lap or peed his pants. I would still allow somebody to clean him up and have him brought to my tent.

I did not read the article, where was Ted 2 on the list.  I know he seemed ready to go all Taken on that damn bear if he even thought about taking his Trix from him even though it is widely known to be specifically for kids.

Taken 4 - Shortest Liam Neesen movie ever

Liam:  "I have a very paticular set of skills....."

Bad Guy:  Wait?  That's you?  Eddie, get the car and get the girl, we gotta take her back  You know who her dad is?  Particular set of skills guy.  Yeah him.
Okay sir, we'll have her back in like 30 minutes - maybe 45 depending on traffic.  Do you need anything while we're out?  Pick up your dry cleaning?  A pizza? A nice decaf latte?  Whatever it is, we'll do it.  Please just don't kill me and everybody I know.

The Grey is a masterpiece that everyone should see. Counselling should probably be provided afterward.
