You already know that the library has you covered when it comes to academics. With over 180 electronic databases and over 97,000 print titles available to you at a moment’s notice, we are the number one place to be when you need the four-one-one on all your school-related projects. But I’m willing to bet that some of our dear readers don’t know that Reynolds libraries are also a pretty fun place to hang, even when you’re not studying. Skeptical? Well, just sit right there: I can prove it to you!
This week, I’m introducing a new, recurring, column to the library blog called We’ve Got That! In it, I will highlight some of the lesser-known – and super fun/useful/awesome/rad/unique – gems that the library has hidden inside its (virtual and literal) walls.
In our first edition, we’ll be highlighting something I know everyone will love:
Movies Starring Liam Neeson
(as everyone’s favorite well-spoken, kinda angry, rule-breaking, heart-stealing, former special forces agent/mythical lion/1980s tv personality/bad LEGO cop/good LEGO cop/jedi master/list-maker/grieving widower with a heart of gold and a set of very particular skills)
1-4. Taken, Taken 2, The Unknown, & The A-Team
If you love Liam Neeson, and you love car chases, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, quiet confidence, well-tailored suits, and plenty of gunplay, then these four films are calling your name!
5. The LEGO Movie
Liam flexes his acting chops in this animated blockbuster from 2014 by playing not only Bad Cop and Good Cop, but also Pa Cop!
6-8. The Chronicles of Narnia Series
(The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader)
Mr. Neeson again shows off his voice-acting skills as the mythical lion, Aslan, in The Chronicles of Narnia Series.
9. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
He’s a Jedi in this one. Enough said.
10. Love Actually
In this popular Christmas movie, Liam plays a widower who helps his young son figure out what love means… and more importantly, shows him that a last-minute mad dash through an airport/train station is pretty much required in any romantic comedy.
11. Schindler’s List
In this World War II drama, and 1994 Best Picture winner, Liam portrays the real-life Oskar Schindler, a businessman who secretly helped to save at least 1,200 Jews from the Nazis. Not for the faint of heart.
These are just some of our favorites. Check our catalog for more and let us know in the comments section which film starring the always-dapper Liam Neeson is your personal favorite!
