With “RED 2” coming out this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to do a Top Ten featuring the movies of Bruce Willis.
Willis has been churning out films for decades now, and he’s wound up starring in some truly great movies over that time, from movies that have cracked the AFI 100 to movies that are pop culture phenomenons.
Of course, he’s had his share of stinkers, too, but that’s a discussion for another time. Today we’ll focus on his best films!
It’s been awhile since we’ve had an actor/actress focused Tossin’ It Out There, and with “A Good Day to Die Hard” on everyone’s minds this weekend, I thought we might turn our attention to Mr. Willis.
Willis broke on the scene in the 1980s with ABC’s “Moonlighting”, and made the jump to feature films with 1987’s “Blind Date”. It was only a year later that he would be catapulted to movie stardom with 1988’s “Die Hard”, and he’s been a big name ever since.
His great films have been few and far between, but he does have them. From 1994’s “Pulp Fiction” to his two collaborations with M. Night Shyamalan, “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable”, Willis definitely has some great films in his filmography. He’s been super prolific, though, racking up 95 credits on his IMDb page. And certainly, not all of them have been good.
So what’s your take? Did he earn your loyalty eternally via his role as John McClane, or as Butch in “Pulp Fiction”? Do you prefer your actors with a little more range? Has he had one too many flops for your taste?
Bruce Willis reprises his famous role of John McClane in the fifth installment of the “Die Hard” franchise. Unfortunately, this is easily the worst “Die Hard” movie ever, and if there were any justice at the megaplex, it would be the nail in the franchise’s coffin.
In “A Good Die to Die Hard”, John McClane travels to Russia for some ill-defined reason, shoots a bunch of nondescript henchmen, and foils a generic “threat to the world” level plot. The action is unmemorable, and the character of John McClane seems worn out.
Even the “Die Hard” die hards will be disappointed by this “Die Hard”.
The MAJOR Awards roll on! This post presents the Worst Supporting Actor winner for 2012!
We had five actors all worthy of being lambasted for their atrociousness in films from last year, but only one can be the winner.
The nominees were: Matthew Fox for “Alex Cross”, Eugene Levy for “Madea’s Witness Protection”, Dennis Quaid for “Playing for Keeps”, Vince Vaughn for “The Watch”, and Bruce Willis for “The Cold Light of Day”.
They all sucked, and each of them should be ashamed of themselves for these roles in their own, unique ways. But only one of them can take home the lamp!

Ladies and Gentleman, here we go. After a long year of suffering through a wide variety of putrid offal, I present to you the fruits of my labors… the WORST movies of 2012.

Here we go, people, let’s kick off our “Worst of”s with the “Worst Supporting Actor” category. These were the actors who weren’t in the lead role (thank God), but managed to make you wince anyways. The worst supporting actors of 2012. In spite of their limited screen time, these five made sure you knew just how awful they were…
