It’s easy to imagine how the pitch for “Non-Stop,” the latest action thriller starring Liam Neeson, went down. “Okay, guys, how about this? It’s ‘Taken,’ but on an airplane!” The surprise is that “Non-Stop” not only could have been a sequel to “Taken,” but it’s also everything “Taken 2” should have been. The film finds Neeson is a familiar role in a plot that mixes together elements of “Air Force One,” “Flightplan,” and various Hitchcockian thrillers. While this sort of thing has been done before, the result is just fresh enough to stand out from all the rest.

Over the holiday season, I was reading a new issue of Forbes magazine, and was uplifted by the headline of one of their articles: “2013 was the Year Everything Went Right for the F-35 Fighter.” This program seemed to have the ire of many elected officials (particularly from one senior U.S. Senator from our state!), but now that the program is reaching its flight testing goals, minimizing technical risks, and costs are being reduced, I hope and believe that the best is yet to come for the F-35 program. That is great news for Luke Air Force base, our country’s military, and hopefully, a certain Arizona U.S. Senator!

Of all the words to describe Mesa in 2013, inactive is the furthest one down the list.

In Japan, the story of the 47 ronin is so central to the country's national identity that a special word exists for the act of retelling it: Chushingura. But despite this long tradition of flexible reinterpretation, the Hollywood-backed "47 Ronin" takes such liberties with the underlying legend that a different term comes to mind, one better suited to American actor Keanu Reeves' involvement: "bogus." So far, Japanese audiences have been slow to embrace a CG-heavy version of the story that offers Keanu as a previously unsung "half-breed" accomplice. Meanwhile, domestic crowds are being deliberately misled to think he's the star — a high-stakes bait-and-switch sure to backfire on this narratively stiff but compositionally dazzling production.
