Anybody planning to go see this one? Here are my predictions for the movie

- it will be boring and mediocre at best
- uninspired dialogue missing any witty quips that made John McClane famous
- standard action scenes
- below average overall plot with no surprises
- no chemistry between characters
- the movie will still make decent money

Why do I think this?

I looked at the filmography of the director and the screenwriter. Their most successful movies are - Behind Enemy Lines, Swordfish and X-Men: Wolverine.

Why do we keep paying so much money for this stuff?

Sorry to hear that. After a terrible 2nd and mediocre 3rd I thought the 4th was terrific. But, yeah, that's not a good pedigree. Especially Swordfish. Sheesh. One of the worst movies of all time.

Don't care for the resumes, but DH still riding on the good will of the very pleasant surprises and fun of the first and second.

I found the other sequels OK enough but not nearly as memorable.

This one really looks to be trading on the brand and "3D." I expect to wait for it to hit cable and pass on the 3D, that is unless David Edelstein (only movie reviewer I've read that I have any confidence in these days) says it's the best thing since sliced bread or nearly so.

Why do we keep paying so much money for this stuff?

I have a feeling Bruce Willis is asking the same thing, with a twist:

"why do they keep paying ME so much money for this stuff?"

He was on Letterman last night and Dave gave him a pop quiz about the first 4 Die Hard movies.
Ex: What were the exact titles of each DH movie? [he only got the first one right]
Who was your fat co-star in the second one? [Uh... ]
In how many of them were you bald?

Even Bruce seems bored with the franchise :-)

Generally, the worse it does, the sooner I can get the disc from Netflix. :)

I still haven't seen Matrix 3 and Star Wars 3. I bet I can sit out the latest Die Hard as well.

I went to see the movie. To sum it up, if you like movies where there are a lot of car crashes and things blowing up, this movie contains a lot of that stuff. If you are looking for another Die Hard movie where there is a lot of humor from the main character, you will find it almost completely missing.
