    Getting ready to watch the new Die Hard movie in IMAX, "A Good Day to Die Hard"

    Www.rottentomatoes.com says the critics hate it (17% +) but the public likes it 82%. I'm pretty psyched. Bruce Willis rules

    Will Imax make it not suck?

    Three hours? Where'd you hear that? It's actually the shortest Die Hard film yet.

    I love guy movies, but this wasn't one of them. This was more like one of those "look how stupid the average person is" movies.

    I'm going to the latest Die Hard tonight, its supposed to be terrible, but fuck the critics. So long as Det. John McClane has a couple of dry one-liners and shoots a ton of bad guys, I don't give a shit. I'll be drunk anyways, I'm about ready to pour my first drink right now. Yippee Ki Yay.

    I thought the last one was horrible. 1 and 3 were fucking great, but I think the series' best days are behind it.

    I saw it a couple weeks ago--total fluff--not the worst film I've ever seen, but take away the name and it goes straight to video.

    The last one was terrible, and the new one isn't supposed to be much better (if at all) but fuck it. I'm all in either way.

    "At 98 minutes, this is by far the shortest of the Die Hard films, the rest of which run more than two hours. But it ends not a moment too soon."

    It sucked, but I didn't have anything to drink before or during the movie. Get smashed and I'm sure it will be fine.

    I hated the last one. And this looks like more of the same. Die Hard 4 part 2.

    Bruce Willis always makes these a fun ride. Are they great movies? No. But they are two hours of not thinking about everyday shit. And he does crack me up. IMAX should be a fun way to watch it too. The best part is at least I can understand what he's saying.............sorry Arnold and Sly.....

    I get it..I like a movie where you have to check your brain at the door every now and then, but Die Hard 4 was stripped away of everything that made the series fun. Everything was slick and the color was washed out. The fight scenes were overly choreographed and the action was pushed up to fucking 20. Everything was overly CGd and there was a fucking chase scene with a jet fighter.

    Too much for me. The original Die Hard was great because, even though it was over the top, there were these realistic elements like McClain being at an extra disadvantage from not having shoes. Shit like that pulled everything back to a relatable level. Same with Die Hard 3 and the "I HATE A group of lovely people" sign. DH4 was devoid of any of that.

    Well, it wasn't as bad as DH4 let me say that. Just ok, but like someone said, nowhere near 1 or 3. Some cool chase scenes and this seriously smoking hot Russian chick,

    My recommendation--get really toasted and see it in IMAX.
