Jason goes to Bad Movie Night to see THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3

That would be the recent remake, not the original.

I don't think these filmmakers could even count to 1, 2, 3. And they cast Tony Soprano as the mayor? Really?

So John Travolta steals a train...which is a great getaway plan because trains can go anywhere. And Denzel Washington is the dispatcher who talks to him and ends up having to negotiate the whole situation. Normally I'd point out that it's sad to see an actor of Washington's caliber slumming it in such a dumb movie. But that doesn't go far enough. So instead I'll just say it's sad to see an actor of Travolta's caliber slum it in such a dumb movie. And that's not even something I said about BATTLEFIELD EARTH.
