I recently watched 'The Mission' (1986) for the second time and was surprised to see a very young, earnest Liam Neeson in the cast. A good film with a historical bent, starring Jeremy Irons & Robert De Niro, with a brief appearance by Aiden Quinn, also very young and earnest.

Liam Neeson was also in Love Actually, loved his story in the movie.

And that older movie with Cher where he played the framed bum and she was the attorney or something.
And the remake of Mutiny on the Bounty. That's semi old now.
It seems his first bigger part was the father protecting his son (the T2 kid). That I remember anyway. Too lazy to look it up.
He's an actor who has worked his way up.

The Mission has one of the most heart-rending pieces of music ever. I never tire of hearing it. Here it is on YouTube ----- the first 2:15 minutes are the most evocative but listen to the entire piece if you have the interest.

I'm not a fan of shark attack movies but happened to catch a good one last night on Netflix. Dark Tide.

I watched The Fifth Estate last night. imdb.com says this:
"A dramatic thriller based on real events that reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century's most fiercely debated organization."

Actually it's about Julian Assange and Wikileaks. With the plus of having Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange.

I loved it----- but then whistle-blower stories are right next to serial killers in my Love List.

We watched The Desolation of Smaug. We are huge Tokien geeks. The ending of the movie was cliff hanger and its been so long since I've read the book that I'm trying to remember what happens next. I have the book but don't want to just re-read it because at least now it will all seem new.

AGREED! Really enjoyed that movie, such powerful acting. I really enjoy Meryl Streep, and the cast was excellent overall.
