I was debating on seeing this or Looper this weekend, I think the answer is pretty obvious now...

I somewhat enjoyed the first one, even if it was yet another lecture for the American audience on why Americans should never, ever, under any circumstances, leave the United States of Freedom for filthy foreign lands.

All the more reason for the film's message of encouraging Americans to stay in the US.

It reminded me of Hostel in a way, which Eli Roth admitted was partly a satire on American ignorance of the world outside.

Joe, you should really do yourself, and America, a favor and take Politico off ignore. He'll learn you quick and correct your Euro-philia.  The whole continent is a dystopian, Mad Max wasteland.

Strictly speaking, it was a French movie, produced by French film studios with a French film crew. Not a single US dollar went into the production of that thing. Tongue

It just had an predominantly American cast and was aimed at an international market.

So, you're telling me that a sequal to a movie that pretty much can't have a sequel without jumping the shark isn't going to be an Academy Nominee?Huh

Looper was good... really friggin weird, but good.

You know why we make such movies? We don't want you here. Stay in your ghetto please. Grin

Re: Taken 2. They used The Footy Show to promote it. They used GWS on the Footy Show to promote it.

Nuff said.
