Yes it does. They kept Sgt. Al Powell around. Hence why the first two are the best.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.

I appreciate they've accepted they'll never be able to recapture the charm and lasting impression of the original, but fuck me this didn't even strike me as 'mindlessly fun'. Everything from McClane's trademark rambling dialogue just felt empty and a parody of itself because it wouldn't be a Die Hard movie without it. The interactions with his kid were largely hollow and again just something that was used to build the movie in between the action. None of the villains were really all that special and the plot was basic and lacking in any real intrigue, drama or investment.

Jai Courtney had an interview before the film where he basically said it could compare to any Die Hard before it and had all the intagibles people wanted in the franchise. What a douche.

I just watched The Perks Of Being A Wallflower for the first time. Fucking awesome. Seriously, anyone who hasn't seen that should stop what they're doing and go watch it. It's really good and perfectly captures the awkwardness and hope of adolescence.

Seriously it's fucking great. I was really disappointed to miss it when it was in cinemas but totally worth the wait. Watch it the first chance you get!

I'll wait until the price drops a bit to buy the DVD.

Just finished watching 'Searching for Sugar Man', very good, it goes without saying the story is too by the nature of it.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Jai Courtney was the best part of Jack Reacher other than Werner Herzog being the creepy bad guy.

Bridesmaids was weird to me, it was incredibly funny at times for 10 minutes or so then you got melodrama for another 10-20 minutes because Kristen Wiig (would get it btw) was sad and lonely like me, then it would get funny again and repeat that 5 or 6 times and you have the movie.
