"Yippee ki-yay, motherf****r!"
Legendary action movie icon Bruce Willis can currently be seen on the big screen in his fifth go-round as John McClane, the perpetually "wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time," in A Good Day to Die Hard. In his 28-year career as an actor, Willis has starred in more than 60 movies — five last year alone — playing such diverse characters as a time travelling hitman, a deep-sea oil driller (in space), a taxicab driver (in space), a dead child psychologist, an honorable boxer with a killer hook, an assassin named "Mr. Goodkat," a professional gambler named "Dink," and a charming killer named "The Tulip." Some of his movies have become classics, while others...not so much, but they all boast one thing: Willis himself, a bonafide movie star the likes of which are rarely seen in Hollywood anymore.

This week, Bruce Willis returns to the franchise that made it all happen with A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in Willis' most enduring franchise.

For many, it's been a disappointing, downward spiral for director M. Night Shyamalan, who was billed as "the next Spielberg" following his releases of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. His most recent movie, The Last Airbender, disappointed followers of the popular cartoon and earned a dismal 6 percent rating on RottenTomatoes last summer. The movie went on to nearly sweep the 2010 Razzies, "winning" Worst Director, Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor, and even Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D.
Among those most disappointed with the director are the trio behind M. Night School, a website created to raise $150,000 to send him back to his alma mater, NYU Film School. We talked to Chris Baker to learn more. Sending M. Night back to school? >> Posted 04.18.11 by Chris
Yesterday The American Film Institute unveiled an updated version of its top 100 movies of all time, with Orson Welles's 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane once again topping the distinguished list.
AFI issued its first top-100 list in 1998 in commemoration of the institute's 100th anniversary. If the updated rankings are any indication, AFI apparently doesn't think much of movies made over the last decade. The new list includes only four films released after the initial rankings were compiled: Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Saving Private Ryan, Titanic and The Sixth Sense.
