I'm looking forward to Side Effects (Soderbergh's final feature, other than the HBO Behind The Candelabra, for at least awhile, though he's going to be working plenty in television instead of film, it sounds like...).

I'm looking forward to Looper. You're the only person I've heard from that didn't like it. Loved the director Rian Johnson's first film (Brick, 2005) and he did a couple of Breaking Bad... I am skeptical or turned off by a lot of time travel stories, but I've heard and read that this is a really good one...

LOVED Looper. (But I love time travel stories.) There is one bit I was confused about concerning standard time travel paradoxes. Dax I will look forward to your opinion.

Just saw 'Jack Reacher'. I'm not a Tom Cruise fan but the movie was OK. Robert Duvall was in it towards the end and he was by far the best part of the movie.

I loved Looper but I'm also a time travel lover and Bruce Wilis.

I thought Reacher was OK, but would have been way better with another actor.

I agree Krystal, any other Hollywood actor would have been better.

Rented the latest Die Hard and was pretty meh. The series has sort of run its course for sure. There was a lot of action, mostly unbelievable. The setting was Russia though which made it a little different. So if you want to see Bruce and his son blow up everything in sight and/or crash into it, see this one.

I'll probably see it with my parents soon (Dad likes the big action movies).

Love-love-love the first one, liked the first two sequels, was very disappointed in the fourth one, especially for how crazy-unbelievable most of the stunts were... and yeah, I could see that #5 was going to be more of that.

I pretty much agree, I did like at least the first 2. Your dad might enjoy the stunts, there are plenty..

The third one ('Die Hard with a Vengeance', with Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Irons co-starring) was an action script that had floated around Hollywood for awhile, called 'Simon Says' (because that was the bad guy's game). It might have been a stand-alone feature, it might have been a Lethal Weapon film... and then it became Die Hard 3. Always thought that was kinda interesting (and then, it was a pretty good movie, too, I thought).

For the new one ('A Good Day To Die Hard'), Aaron Paul had been up for the role of McClane's son. Since it turned out to be just another dumb, forgettable movie, it's for the best that he didn't get it (couldn't do it, I think, schedule-wise)...
