Spoof Review: Taken 2
Since I didn't watch Taken 2 for a review cause I'm waiting to catch it on cable, here's my short list of alternate titles:
5. Fool Me Twice
3. Taken, Again
1. Taken Part Deux
Any one of those would have worked for me, any. And how realistic is the premise of the movie? Your ex-wife who married up after dumping you and taking full custody of your daughter is kidnapped so you turn Paris upside down to save her.
Here's how the movie would play out in real life:
"This is Bryan Miller..."
"We have your ex-wife..."
Written and Directed by Usher Raymond
Word to fellow blogger, Nicole Monique.
That script would be the shortest blockbuster, ever. #1 among the divorced 30 - 55 year old male demographic at a cool $25 million box office debut - coincidently the back alimony owed by the target audience. And instead of a Second Look, J is gonna write a First Look after Taken 2 hits Netflix.
Anyways, we do have some pretty good pickings coming up at the box office in October. Here Comes the Boom, 7 Psychopaths, Sinister, Argo, and Chasing Mavericks to name a few. V/H/S looks like a new take on the POV horror genre so I may peep it out - at least they'll call the sequel "D/V/D".
I'm not knocking you if you liked Taken but ladies I'd rather catch Taken 2 with you via Redbox in Cuffing Season 2013.
