“Joan Rivers: Don’t Start With Me”
Joan Rivers has been performing stand-up for many, many years. She took her act to St. Charles’ Arcada Theatre last March to film a special, now out on DVD.
She’s a pioneer of female comics working in clubs, and she’s still doing her in-your-face material today. Nothing is off-limits, so this Showtime special is for adults.
Liam Neeson has become an action star, and this film will not disappoint his fans. “Taken 2,” a sequel, begins at a funeral in Albania, where some of the men whom Bryan Mills (Neeson) has killed are being laid to rest. The leader of the men (Rade Serbedzija) vows revenge. When they find out that Mills is headed to Istanbul, they set a trap for him.
In Istanbul, Mills is surprised by his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) and daughter Kim (Maggie Grace). Bryan and Lenore decide to spend some time together, only to be taken in a wild action sequence.
The film offers a ton of action — fights, explosions and so much mayhem you will barely have time to catch your breath.
