A few winters ago, Liam Neeson began a new phase in his career. He went from dramatic Oscar-worthy performances in films like "Schindler's List" and "Michael Collins" to an unlikely action star in the hit film "Taken." It was an odd move and hasn't been without its bumps.
There are many films about famous people, from 1995's "Truman," to 2011's "The King's Speech." Famous people are often fodder for our film imaginations. This latest biopic is no different.
One of my favorite movies as a child, "The Goonies," is playing at Film Streams until Dec. 1. "The Goonies" is produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Richard Donner. It's interesting to see Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Jonathan Ke Quan, Kerri Green and Jeff Cohen as young actors in the 80s.
I'm sure half the people in attendance at the advanced screening of "21 Jump Street" either weren't alive for or barely old enough to remember the show generally regarded as Johnny Depp's breakout role.
