Instead, he is a person that puts himself into every role (not in a good way) an merely reads lines in his own persona and demeanor.
oh, yeah. i agree. lawless was the first shia movie i have been able to enjoy since holes.
Just watched Pitch Perfect with my sister. Originally didn't want to watch it (you know, because I'm a dude) but it was actually very good. 8.5/10. I saw someone else said they fell in love with Brittany Snow and I agree, she's ****ing gorgeous as a red head and can actually act. I'd actually recommend this movie to anyone.
Live Free Die hard and Die hard with Vengeance are the top 2 by far
You can seriously go and join Hans Gruber while he falls to his death from the Nakatomi tower in the climax of...
THE GREATEST ACTION MOVIE EVER!
Honestly, this just killed my head. It killed my head, mind, soul, heart and spirit. I cannot comprehend the travesty of your words. The tragedy. The extreme miscalculation. The misguided priorities.
If you would have said that Live Free and Vengeance were your favorites, I would have let you off with a small hyperbole. But stating that they are the top two by far as if a legitimate measurement of the filmmaking prowess on display by John McTiernan is in any way inferior to that of Len Wiseman...
Well, I'm almost speechless.
To state that something Les Wiseman directed was better than something John McTiernan directed...
Len Wiseman has directed Underworld, Underworld: Evolution, Live Free and Total Recall.
John McTiernan, among other films, has directed Die Hard, Predator, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, The Hunt for Red October, Last Action Hero, The Thirteenth Warrior and The Thomas Crown Affair. All of those movies are blu-ray worthy while the only blu-ray worthy Wiseman film is Live Free, and the only reason Live Free is blu-ray worthy is because of Bruce Willis playing the character that McTiernan helped create.
I mean, seriously. Do you realize that the theatrical version of Live Free removed the iconic line? Instead of yippee-ki-yay mother******, it was yippee-ki-yay - BANG.
But seriously, all hyperbole and lighthearted screaming aside, if you liked those two better than the best one, I can understand that. But to say they were better? Well, there's a difference there, and I cannot abide that kind of statement without saying something.
And rotten tomatoes and imdb both back me up here, as would any film scholar, critic, director, and probably even Bruce Willis, and certainly John McClane.
Total Recall - 8.5/10
note: anything with Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel in it is a winner; this was way, way, way better than the original
Dark Knight Rises - 9.5/10
note: this was the best of the Batman movies, IMO; the villain was excellent...but, I watched in surround sound and his voice resounded off of my walls at a much higher volume than the rest of the movie...anyone else have that experience?
