Yippee Ki Yay

We went to see Live Free or Die Hard (a.k.a Die Hard 4) with Bruce Willis, and it is more action-packed and exciting than a whole season of 24. If we are talking about the most recent season of 24, you'd have to throw in 2 seasons. Plus -- it features a terrorist bad guy who is not Islamic, Russian, or Chinese!! {Whaaaa??} Yup. He's a regular old American white guy who happens to be disgruntled and is a lot smarter than Timothy McVeigh. Don't worry, I refuse to post spoilers on something newly released, so I won't, but Bruce Willis is the ultimate badass, is he not? This is a pic I took at the Antone's show put on by director Robert Rodriguez (on the left) during the filming of Sin City, and featured Bruce Willis, Rodriguez and Del Castillo (a.k.a. Chingon). I am always stageside if possible, and when Bruce jumped down into the crowd, everyone was pressed up against each other already so I couldn't resist putting my arm around his waist for about 3 seconds. Well... what else could I do? Somewhere in Rodriguez' home videos is a 3 second clip of Bruce Willis next to yours truly. I love Rodriguez too. He has an amazing knack for coming up with the greatest characters, they can carry the movies all by themselves and sometimes do (his buddy Tarantino has that quality as well).

Still wanting to see Sicko, Ratatouille, Transformers (if I can talk Mr. B into it), and the new Harry Potter movie will be out soon although I'm much more looking forward to the book. 1408 looks good maybe. What's good in the theatre or DVD? What did you like or hate? No spoilers, please. Summer movie season -- I love it.

The hubby and I watched "Black Snake Moan" yesterday. It starts Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci. We really liked it. Very well acted and directed.

We watched "Shooter" a couple of days ago. I thought it was very bad.

I've heard great things about Ratatouille and Transformers. I love Bruce Willis though, so that will probably be the first thing I see in the theater.

We saw the TiVo preview of 'Ratatouille' - looks quite promising.

The preview of 'Black Snake Moan' also looked intriguing - would be interesting to see the combination of Samuel Jackson and Christina Ricci.

Hmm, I guess we'd better start watching movies, rather than previews. :-)

Die Hard 4 is awesome, but Transformers ... eh. It's not bad until the robots start talking. Then it's lame over the top dialogue just like the 80's series. Cool effects though.
