You a fan of the Fett?

Die Hard 4 really did not disappoint. On par with, lets say, Speed, True Lies, and other decent but not completely awesome mid-nineties action movies (I'm sorry, I loved True Lies. "What kind of a sick bitch takes the ice cube trays out of the freezer?") Remember when all the movies were action-packed buddy-movies? Kind of like now it's sophomoric potty-comedy, comic books, and horror flicks? Entirely gratuitous combat, complete disregard for John McClane's Very fulfilling despite being PG-13, thank god.

Up next this summer: Transformers, HP5, Superbad, Clubland, and The Ten (maybe, just semi-excited about that last one.)

PS: saw a preview for a movie called The Brave One where Jodie Foster and plays a woman who loses everything (including the guy who plays Sayid on LOST) and becomes a crazy-ass vigilante. At first I was praying it was a delusional sequel to Taxi Driver, with a grown-up Iris, but alas, I was sorely mistaken. Looks like your typical Jodie-of-late-thriller. But I just had to throw that in there. I freaked out on MoLinder in the theater. "It's like the sequel to Taxi Driver except not as good. No fucking way."
