Geek Blu Review: Taken 2
Last Updated on Monday, 21 January 2013 01:00 Written by LoganDX Monday, 21 January 2013 01:00
Bad guys are bad guys for a reason: they have no morals, no normal code of conduct and when one of them dies doing bad things, they must get revenge. This revenge is the central premise to Taken 2. A bunch of sick baddies die at the hands of Liam Neeson‘s Brian Mills in the first film, baddies who kidnapped his daughter to sell into white slavery, so the families decide Mills and his family must pay. Only a bad guy thinks this way I tell you!
Taken 2 starts off with a slight recap of the events in Taken, mostly the kidnappers’ demise. A solemn figure promises revenge, swearing blood. We cut to Mills and his newest daughter, Kim – played by Maggie Grace, related frustration – driving tests and a boy. The new wrinkle in his life appears when his ex-wife (Famke Janssen) reveals she is separated from her rich as hell husband. Clearly the feelings are still there, something which is going to complicate his life considerably.
Thanks to a last-minute cancellation by the step-dad, Kim and her mom are left without a hang out for spring break. Mills invites them to spend time with him after he completes a job in Istanbul. Guess what’s going to happen there? If you guessed someone gets Taken, you win! To avoid spoilers, I’m stopping here in the story but if you’re a fan of the first, you need to watch Taken 2.

Seth MacFarlane’s first big screen outing has finally been granted release date. The side-splitting comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and his rude, perverted best friend will be hitting homes on December 11th. I say finally because I’ve been dying to sit down and watch it again (and again). Now I’ll be able to as well as watch the most likely ridiculously over the top unrated version.
For those unaware, Ted tells the tale of a lonely boy, John, wishing for a Christmas miracle. That miracle comes in the form of Ted, a talking teddy bear. The two form a bond that carries them well into John’s adulthood. The duo spend their days indulging in less than noble activities until John’s super sexy girlfriend (Mila Kunis) wants John to move on from the slacker lifestyle and Ted. As in typical MacFarlane style, more hijinks than one can catalog in one sitting ensue.
The Blu-ray combo pack will feature the unrated version of the movie, a DVD for backup, a digital copy and an Ultraviolet version. The features will have a gag reel, deleted scenes, alternate takes and making of featurettes. Hit the break for a full break down of everything included and wait anxiously for my pick for comedy of the year!

Winner picked, check thy emails geeks!
The beard has become real! Anybody who’s ever seen the Epic Beard Man video on Youtube might be surprised to find out it was turned into a movie. Okay, inspired a movie if you want to be technical. The movie is real and it stars perpetual badass, Danny Trejo. Mr. Machete himself takes on the gangs, the baddies and the corrupt cops in the city that had forsaken him years ago upon his return from Vietnam. Now his new found fame prompts him to find the killer of his best friend since those crooked cops won’t. And maybe clean up the city while he’s at it.
Kicking criminal butts and taking the law into his own hands, Danny Trejo (Machete, “Sons of Anarchy”) ignites the screen in the gritty, violent and enthralling film Bad Ass. Inspired by the viral video of a vigilante citizen taking action into his own hands, Bad Ass also stars Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy,” Hellboy) and Charles S. Dutton (Alien 3). Bad Ass tells the story of decorated Vietnam hero, Frank Vega, who returns home only to be shunned by society. It’s not until 40 years later when an incident on a commuter bus makes him a local hero and he’s suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune ends when his best friend, Klondike, is murdered and the police aren’t doing anything about it.
Nothing can really top a full tilt action flick with Danny Trejo crushing skulls and blowing crap up! Grab a couple buds, some tasty refreshments and a bucket of popcorn then sit back to watch the craziness unfold.

Winner picked and notified, go dive into those emails geeks!
It’s raining discs over here at DontHateTheGeek! This time we have a sparkling copy of Hoosiers on blu ray just for one of you geeks! The #1 sports movie of all time is celebrating its 25th Anniversary and now is the perfect time to watch it again on blu ray. For those of you unfamiliar with the inspirational story, it’s based on the 1954 Milan High School boys basketball team overcoming a much larger adversary in the Muncie Central Team. Their exploits made for one of the best underdog stories in cinematic history.
Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) is a volatile basketball coach with a dark past who arrives in a small, rural Indiana town to attempt to lead the high school team to victory. This group of underdogs needs all the help they can get, and no one would have ever suspected that it would come from the unlikely duo of Dale and his newly hired assistant coach, the town’s recovering alcoholic, Shooter (Dennis Hopper). Under Dale and Shooter’s guidance, the Hickory team surprises their town – and themselves – by not only becoming an unstoppable team during the basketball season, but also taking home the 1952 State Championship.
Even if you’re not a fan, Father’s Day is right around the corner and chances are your dad might be, so enter for him! Hit the break to get in those entries and check out some more “Real Life Cinderella Stories”!
