Oh, Bruce Willis, Why Do You Waste My Time?

So, having nothing better to do today, I popped out to catch Live Free or Die Hard, because you know, at the very least it would be a movie where they done blowed shit up.

Booooooooooooooooring.

I hate doing any spoiler sort of thing, so I'm not going to give away any of the plot or anything, but I will say this: to all you future action film directors, the way to actually edit such a film is not to have cuts every three seconds (and don't tell me it was done that way to heighten the action, because even the scenes with talking heads were shot that way, to the extent that at various points the actor's mouths do not match the dialogue which they are speaking--that's just piss-poor movie making).

Also... Kevin Smith as a hacker? Back up the cliche truck here and just dump a load right into this movie, would you? Lives in his mom's basement... Boba Fett standee in the corner... insists on being referred to by his hacker name of Warlock...

Honestly, I think I was more disappointed by this one than I was the third Pirates film, and I was at least expecting that one to be fun.

Do yourselves a favor and just watch the first Die Hard and enjoy its wonderful low-tech, non-digital, well-written fun.
