Building the perfect dad brain requires a blend of smarts, morals and karate skills that can't be found in just one movie dad, which is why we used eight, including Clark Griswold, Atticus Finch and, of course, Indiana Jones.

On the 'Morality' of Cinematic Action-Movie Massacres

Scott Mendelson | Posted 05.27.2013 | Entertainment

Can a certain level or type of violence actually make a popcorn action film less enjoyable and/or null the would-be happy ending? Arguably there should be some kind of proverbial line in the sand when it comes to casual carnage in 'just for fun' action pictures.

Review: Olympus Has Fallen

Scott Mendelson | Posted 05.22.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

Olympus Has Fallen offers a level of jingoistic fear-mongering the likes of which are more commonly associated with a 1980s Chuck Norris vehicle. It isn't terribly smart and it peaks in the first act, but damned if I didn't enjoy the picture nonetheless.

Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen

Marshall Fine | Posted 05.22.2013 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

A second-rate Die Hard knock-off with Gerard Butler playing the Bruce Willis role, Olympus Has Fallen is preposterously overblown, an action movie that seems to prove the old saying: If brains were gunpowder, this movie wouldn't have enough to blow its own nose.

Zaki's Review: A Good Day to Die Hard

Zaki Hasan

At a breezy 97 minutes, the one thing you can't say about Good Day to Die Hard is that it overstays its welcome. Also, once you jettison the need for things like "drama" and "character development" it becomes a not-unpleasant way to while away an hour-and-a-half.

According to box-office pundits, A Good Day to Die Hard will be the big box-office winner this holiday weekend. If the predictions hold true, this film confirms the conventional wisdom: People want what's familiar, no matter how hackneyed and repetitive.

Remember Bruce Willis' Singing Career?

Mike Ryan | Posted 04.17.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

As a society, we love Bruce Willis (even if his current film, A Good Day To Die Hard, is going to test that love a bit), which is why, as a society, we have conveniently forgotten Willis' foray into the recording industry. In 1987, Willis was a year away from true international stardom with Die Hard, but he was still an extremely popular man due to his work on the television show Moonlighting. That was the year he released his album, The Return of Bruno.

ReThink Review: A Good Day to Die Hard -- Killing a Classic

Jonathan Kim | Posted 04.16.2013 | Entertainment

Instead of stone-faced bodybuilders or martial arts experts, Die Hard had John McClane, an everyman New York cop with only street smarts and a sense of humor on his side who seemed as surprised as anyone to be an action hero.

Why Is John McClane Invincible Now?

Mike Ryan | Posted 04.15.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

Now, in A Good Day to Die Hard, there's a scene about 45 minutes into the movie in which McClane (along with his son, played by Jai Courtney, whom I did enjoy in this role) finds himself, once again, in a high-rise building. A helicopter is firing bullets into the room that the McClanes are in, so McClane and his son run at top speed toward the windows, break through, and jump into infinity. The two then crash though scaffolding at a high rate of speed (scaffolding that it's hard to believe they were aware existed), eventually falling into a chute of some kind and then landing safely on the ground without harm. McClane didn't think twice about this decision; there was no anguish at the thought of dying. He didn't even bother looking for a fire hose to swing from.
