– Will The Villain of Die Hard 5 Be A Member of The Gruber Clan?

If they start following, whether it be intentional or not, following the Star Trek “Pattern”, the villain will indeed be a Gruber. Hans Gruber (played by Alan Rickman; Bottle Shock) was in the first film. Simon Gruber (played by Jeremy Irons; Man In The Iron Mask) starred in the third film.

Out of the 4 films to date, I have to say the best villains were the two Grubers that we have seen. Though I still like all the movies. I really liked Live Free or Die Hard but wished they kept the hard R-rating we are all accustomed to with the first three movies. Yes, the action was still great but how do you even sleep at night after even thinking about editing John McClane’s signature line?

I’m excited to see more John McClane saving the day even if Bruce Willis doesn’t have hair anymore. Give him a gun, let him curse and let the body count rise.

– John Woo’s The Killer Getting An English-Language, 3D Remake

If you end up watching this sometime in the future make sure you watch the original before you mind is wrongfully tainted by this disastrous remake that will be added to the long list of Hollywood remakes that keep coming out. The original, which is painfully hard to say with the remake already in production, starred Chow Yun-Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Corrupter). I will not be watching this and the fact that it’s being filmed in 3D just seals the deal.

– Katherine Heigl Replaces Halle Berry in New Years’ Eve

….Because at some point the same character she has played in every movie since the one that got her in the Hollywood spotlight, Knocked Up, has got to work at some point? Yeah, that’s not happening.. I’ll admit I liked The Ugly Truth but her second best film will always be Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, which is sad. At least until she starts to believe she’s talented and branches out.

In this film, a follow-up to Valentine’s Day,  her love interest will be Jon Bon Jovi, 16 years her senior. This movie is going to suck just like the first time around. But women fall for this crap and they drag us along so we’ll see another one in this series in a year or two.

Movies I’ve recently seen for the first time……

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Thought it was as good as the first one. Shia LaBeouf was actually bearable in this one and Michael Douglas is perfect again bringing back Gordon Gekko to the big screen. There’s even a surprise cameo that works great.

The Invention of Lying

Ricky Gervais is hilarious, no other way to put it. The first scene we get with Jennifer Garner (Catch & Release) was hysterical. The second half of the movie kind of dragged though.

The Blind Side

It’s a feel good sports movie and it does just that. Sandra Bullock (The Proposal) is still a very attractive woman who always seems to find a way back into the spotlight when her star begins to fade. Great performances all around. The nominations all make sense now.

Robin Hood

Russell Crowe & Ridley Scott team up again to the point where I actually have to think to recall all the films they’ve done together. It was alright, nowhere near the quality of say Gladiator or American Gangster but gives us a different perspective of the legend we are all aware of. Actually hope they do a sequel.

Killers

Ashton Kutcher should only stick to playing idiots like in ‘That 70s Show’ & Dude, Where’s My Car? Horrible movie and Katherine Heigl (Under Siege 2) keeps playing the same character in everything recently.

Defiance

Good movie about jewish brothers who help their kinsmen during the Holocaust. Daniel Craig (Casino Royale) is at the top of his game in this film.

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Funny movie from the guys behind Talladega Nights & Stepbrothers. A better film then the latter with a great cameo by Will Ferrell.

Imagine That

Eddie Murphy (Beverly Hills Cop) needs to return to his R-rated comedies immediately.
