"A Good Day To Die Hard"
Cast: Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Yulia Snigir, Rasha Bukvic, Cole Hauser
Director: John Moore
Comment: This fifth in the "Die Hard" series can't carry the other four's "water." Impossible to suspend disbelief. Some really poor editing cuts are obvious too. The over the top special effects should really be seen on the big screen to get the full, ridiculous, OMG effect. Despite the effects, it is a disappointment for Bruce Willis and "Die Hard" fans.
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Romance
Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Engiert, Jeremey Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum
Director: Richard LaGravenese
Comment: Moments of creative inspiration similar to "Twilight Saga," but those sputtered out. Big disappointment for those who read the book. In any event, an extremely unmemorable picture.
"Escape From Planet Earth 3-D"
Genre: Animated Family Comedy
Cast: Rob Corddry, Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker,
Director: Cal Brunker
Comment: Really corny, so take the little kids for a family outing, grin and bare it!
Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva, Isabelle Huppert, Alexandre Tharaud William Shimell
Director: Michael Haneke
Comment: Warning: critic alert!! Art posing as entertainment. Two hours, seven minutes of agony, tedium and depression. The ultimate act of love…but not what you're thinking. The "critics" gushed over it so beware!
