Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Undecided. Around Christmas time last year, I watched Die Hard for the first time, and absolutely loved it. I followed up with part two and three shortly after (dug those too), and then I hesitantly watched Live Free or Die Hard. While I didn’t necessarily hate the fourth entry, I didn’t really enjoy it all that much. So here we are with a fifth movie in the series and there’s a surefire possibility that I just don’t care to watch because aside from my disappointment in movie four, I feel like this franchise is on its last leg and Bruce Willis seems like he doesn’t even wanna be John McClane anymore. Where’s the fun in that? Maybe if it airs on television in the near future I’ll check it out, but sheer trepidation is what is keeping me away from this movie. –LJF

Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Theater. If I didn’t have relatives coming up to visit this weekend, I’d be plopping myself into the local cineplex to see the further adventures of everybody’s favorite wise-cracking, guy in the wrong place at the wrong time. Bruce Willis can make just about any movie work (okay, there are some exceptions) and when it comes to his signature character, Willis is always at the top of his game. Even Live Free or Die Hard was an enjoyable film — absurd at times sure, but still enjoyable. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen with A Good Day to Die Hard — run and gun action sequences, lots of vintage Willis one-liners and an interesting wrinkle — his son Jack is all growns up and as big of a badass as dear old dad. It’s going to be good, escapist fun. Yippe Kay Yay indeed. –BB
