"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.

In a career that spans decades, Willis got his start doing theater in New York before getting his break on the TV show Moonlighting and then moving on to movies. At the age of 57, Willis seems to be busier than ever, carving out new franchises like The Expendables and RED (whose sequel, RED 2 opens later this year), while still appearing in smaller, art-house projects like last year's Moonrise Kingdom.
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. This time, Detective John McClane will travel to Russia to meet up with his son (Jai Courtney) in a sequel that is poised to win a long, three-day weekend. But while audiences flock to see the latest chance to see Willis say "yippee-ki-yay," what do we know about Willis' entire career? We've got you covered as long as you have under 8 hours to spare. check out our picks from Willis' career >> Posted 02.15.13 by Ryan
Which of this year's movies deserve the industry’s highest honor?
This has been an incredible year for movie lovers, especially fans of genre movies. There were fewer superheroes on the big screen, but they ruled the box office, nonetheless, with smartly written, ingeniously directed and just plain fun comic book adaptations coming in first, second, and fifth on the list of the highest-grossing movies of the year. Sci-fi fans were made to suffer through a couple of early duds, but had their patience rewarded with the return of some classic characters and one of the most influential directors to work in the genre after a thirty-year hiatus. Fantasy fans got to choose between whimsical and warrior Snow Whites, and the world's most popular vampire couple had a baby, not to mention that the greatest high fantasy franchise of all time returns to theaters this month after a decade slumbering in the Shire. (Horror fans got the short end of the
stake stick this year, with too many sequels and not enough original content.)
Women continued to assert themselves in 2012, with more female-driven comedies getting laughs for the kinds of jokes once reserved for men, and the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director is almost a sure thing for another nomination. Independent studios also made a splash this year, turning out several engaging, moving, and downright brilliant dramas that are every bit as good as the big studio dramas with A-list directors.
Which movies were the best? Which ones deserve the honor of being nominated for the movie industry's top prize? That's up to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to decide, but we want to know what you think. Ignore genre and tell us which movies deserve to be nominated for Oscars, whether for Best Picture, Best Animated Feature or Best Documentary.

Thanksgiving Day is a special holiday. It's that one day of the year where we all get to skip work to gather with our friends and family members and simply reflect on the things in our lives that we have to be thankful for...and then watch NFL football and consume massive quantities of "harvest" food. At ReelzChannel, we're all about movies, so Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete if we didn't take the time to be thankful for all of the great new movies of the year. If you're a movie person, then we consider you part of our extended family. So, before you have that third helping of stuffing and pass out on the couch from all of the tryptophan in the turkey, take a moment to share with us the movies that have excited, thrilled, scared, and moved you in 2012.

Throughout the majority of director Wes Anderson's work is an underlying theme of innocence or the impact of one's childhood on adulthood. From his 1996 debut Bottle Rocket, which followed three, seemingly harmless young men who ineptly try to become thieves, to his 1998 sophomore feature Rushmore, which followed a 15-year-old's attempt to win the love of his schoolteacher.
Anderson's latest movie, Moonrise Kingdom, which arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray today, follows two twelve-year-old kids Sam (Jared Gilman and Suzy (Kara Hayward) who fall in love and run away together, setting off a panic in their small New England town.all the latest trailers

We love movies and we especially love movies with great ensemble casts. There's nothing better than seeing our favorite actors and actresses sharing screen time with one another, feeding off of each others' performances and upping each others' game. With a decent script and the right director, a great ensemble cast can create cinematic gold.
It's because of our love for movies with great ensemble casts that we are eagerly anticipating writer-director Martin McDonagh's (In Bruges) new black comedy, Seven Psychopaths. The plot is a bit out there, but with a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, we're sure to be treated to some combustible onscreen chemistry. Seven Psychopaths doesn't come out until next week, so help us pass the time until its release by rating the Top 10 Great Ensembles in Good Movies.

A crippled hero rises to save his city one last time. A team of scientists seeking God in the depths of space instead discover pure evil. A fairy tale princess becomes a warrior and saves herself. A foul-mouthed teddy bear plays the white trash name game. This summer's selection of movie releases were filled with triumphant, terrifying, inspiring and hilarious moments.
The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises obliterated the popular myth that the superhero action genre had run its course. Ted proved that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is even funnier when he doesn't have to censor himself. Moonrise Kindom cemented Wes Anderson as the indie king of whimsical, witty comedies with a heart. Each of these movies were fantastic in their own ways, but how do they stack up against each other? Help us rate the Top 10 Best Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.
