    Die Hard 6

    http://collider.com/die-hard-6-die-h...en-trebilcook/

    Early days yet, but Willis might annihilate Tokio this time. That said, even Willis wasn't too happy with the fifth one, so that's gotta count for something. Maybe Shane Black can do this next.

    Who was happy with the fifth one? I'm the most forgiving idiot out there and even I gave it a thumbs down.

    Thumbs down for me too, but it can't be that difficult to make the right choices. No sidekicks, oneliners that pop, accomplished director etc...

    Part 5 could've have been much improved (raising it to the level of 'acceptable') with a few edits and a little CGI. What a wasted opportunity.

    I think the origin story isn't really news since young McClane was confirmed perhaps a year ago.

    And clearly it was his first time in a major situation. I have no idea what prequel could add...other than his inability to relax without toe fist information.

    Perhaps we'll see McClane hooking up with pals, go to the coast and have a few laughs. Maybe they'll order pizza.

    Agreed. The idea makes no sense.

    It sounds like a mistake, going back to the 70's for a portion of the movie, but possibly less so than giving him a son that looks like Jai Courtney.

    Thought Die Hard 4 actually had a lot going for it, especially in the physical stunt work and some of the funny lines. Plus I'm here for Olyphant cheesing it up as the villain. Did not see 5, no intention to.

    I enjoy part 4 as well! I've watched 5 twice just to see if I was having a bad day. No, its terrible.

    I always liked Die Hard 4 also. It's an inventive action film, with enough practical stuff and when it gets crazy, the FX hold up well.

    The only thing on the kill list that sounded interesting was Taika Waititi's "Flash Gordon."

    Everything else was varying degrees of meh.

    I never saw 5. I love the rest of the series and would be fine if it stayed dead.

    From the renders that leaked online, The Mouseguard looked incredible. But I get why Disney cancelled it, as much as I hate to admit it.
