It’s been awhile since we’ve had an actor/actress focused Tossin’ It Out There, and with “A Good Day to Die Hard” on everyone’s minds this weekend, I thought we might turn our attention to Mr. Willis.
Willis broke on the scene in the 1980s with ABC’s “Moonlighting”, and made the jump to feature films with 1987′s “Blind Date”. It was only a year later that he would be catapulted to movie stardom with 1988′s “Die Hard”, and he’s been a big name ever since.
His great films have been few and far between, but he does have them. From 1994′s “Pulp Fiction” to his two collaborations with M. Night Shyamalan, “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable”, Willis definitely has some great films in his filmography. He’s been super prolific, though, racking up 95 credits on his IMDb page. And certainly, not all of them have been good.
So what’s your take? Did he earn your loyalty eternally via his role as John McClane, or as Butch in “Pulp Fiction”? Do you prefer your actors with a little more range? Has he had one too many flops for your taste?
Bruce Willis reprises his famous role of John McClane in the fifth installment of the “Die Hard” franchise. Unfortunately, this is easily the worst “Die Hard” movie ever, and if there were any justice at the megaplex, it would be the nail in the franchise’s coffin.
In “A Good Die to Die Hard”, John McClane travels to Russia for some ill-defined reason, shoots a bunch of nondescript henchmen, and foils a generic “threat to the world” level plot. The action is unmemorable, and the character of John McClane seems worn out.
Even the “Die Hard” die hards will be disappointed by this “Die Hard”.
The MAJOR Awards roll on! This post presents the Worst Supporting Actor winner for 2012!
We had five actors all worthy of being lambasted for their atrociousness in films from last year, but only one can be the winner.
The nominees were: Matthew Fox for “Alex Cross”, Eugene Levy for “Madea’s Witness Protection”, Dennis Quaid for “Playing for Keeps”, Vince Vaughn for “The Watch”, and Bruce Willis for “The Cold Light of Day”.
They all sucked, and each of them should be ashamed of themselves for these roles in their own, unique ways. But only one of them can take home the lamp!

Ladies and Gentleman, here we go. After a long year of suffering through a wide variety of putrid offal, I present to you the fruits of my labors… the WORST movies of 2012. These were the movies that made you want to escape the pain, the ones that you wish would just END already. The type of movie you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy.
My pain is your gain, though! Click through to see the ten movies that stunk out the joint the worst in 2012
Here we go, people, let’s kick off our “Worst of”s with the “Worst Supporting Actor” category. These were the actors who weren’t in the lead role (thank God), but managed to make you wince anyways. The worst supporting actors of 2012. In spite of their limited screen time, these five made sure you knew just how awful they were…

Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.
Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.
Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!
With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I’ll be circling around to a handful of reviews over the next month or so that I didn’t have a chance to review when they hit the theatre initially. I’d include this in the “Under the Radar” series, but… with stars like Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, etc., plus a heavy national advertising campaign in spite of a slow national roll out, “Moonrise Kingdom” isn’t under the radar at all.
Still, I couldn’t wait for it to hit cable. This was one of my most anticipated movies for the year, I had to see if it was a Top Ten candidate.
