25 years since John McClane was introduced in “Die Hard” movies that exploded into theaters, launching a new cinematic hero and changing the paradigm of action movies. McClane is identifiable and relatable.  An ordinary man forced by circumstances to attempt an extraordinary task.  That is what separates him from the comic book heroes of most action movies, and has made McClane one of the most popular characters in film history. Bruce Willis reprises his iconic role as police detective John McClane in “A Good Day to Die Hard” directed by John Moore set against the backdrop of deadly corruption and political vendetta in Russia.  McClane arrives in Moscow to track down his estranged son, Jack, (Jai Courtney), and is stunned to discover he’s working undercover to protect a government whistleblower, Komarov.  With their own necks on the line, the McClanes are forced to overcome their differences in order to get Komarov to safety and thwart a potentially disastrous crime in the most desolate place on Earth – Chernobyl.
Willis is McClane, and he embraced the opportunity to pay another visit to the beloved character that has a habit of finding himself in the wrong place at the right time.  Does trouble find John McClane or does John McClane seek it out?  “Well, he’s certainly attracted to trouble,” says the actor, “but yes, trouble also seems determined to find him.” “I find it an interesting exercise to reach for the bar we set with the series, and I enjoy checking in with McClane at different stages in his life,” Willis continues. “In this story, he’s at a point where men tend to reflect on their past. For McClane, it’s the estranged relationship with his son. They haven’t spoken in some time, and the first news he’s received of him is about his arrest in Moscow.”
Moore embraced the opportunity of helming a new Die Hard picture and working with Willis.  “Bruce is the most zealous guardian at the gate of what’s right for John McClane, and what’s right for Die Hard, says the director. Nobody knows the character and the franchise better than Bruce.” As both head coach and referee of the new installment of this “Super Bowl” franchise, director John Moore was committed to taking the series to the next level.  His unique visual style and background in action-oriented movies such as Behind Enemy Lines and Max Payne convinced Fox executives and producers he could move the ball downfield. The work was painstaking but never dull: “It’s not unusual for us to spend 12 hours doing a shot that will be three seconds on screen, but there’s no other way,” Moore explains. “This is analog filmmaking. We are doing as much as possible in camera and only using VFX to enhance or paint in backgrounds.”
In creating the movie’s visual style, Moore wanted the camera work to be almost entirely handheld, using three cameras and long lenses to capture tight close-ups.  The improvised camera movements place the audience inside the action, as if they’re part of the story, instead of detached observers viewing from a distance. Moore says, “McClane is in a strange world, with little or no initial control over his environment. He’s unable to anticipate things as he normally might. He’s caught off guard, and we want the camera to mimic that surprise and confusion.” “We have a couple of the best stuntmen in the world on this show, and the whole team is top notch,” says stunt coordinator Steve Davison. “The Die Hard shows are sort of the Super Bowl of action movies, and every stuntman in the business wants to be in the game.”
“A Good Day to Die Hard” opens February 13 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney in A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD

Considered as one of the most enduring movie stars in the world, Bruce Willis is back the 5th time in the “Die Hard” blockbuster franchise the world over dies to line up for in “A Good Day To Die Hard” along with up and coming actor Jai Courtney.    Willis not only reprises his iconic John McClane but gives the hard-talking detective a higher ante when the stage of blazing, intense action is set internationally in Moscow where he finds himself reunited with his estranged son Jack (Courtney).  Having always had a frictional relationship with his son for years, the older McClane decides to finally look him up with help from friends at Washington DC.  The search showed that Jack is involved in some nefarious business in Europe somewhere and John takes flight from DC to Russia with the intention of helping his son out of trouble.  Unaware that his son is a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a ring of terrorist planning a nuclear weapons heist, the two McClanes shed as much strength, wit and humor making them unstoppable heroes despite their opposing methods.


Creepy thriller “Stoker” starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode starts after India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident. Her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman).

“The Heat” marks Sandra Bullock’s return to action-comedy, a genre typically dominated by males where stakes are higher and doubled with Melissa McCarthy as her partner-in-crime to solve crimes.   Directed by Paul Feig, the buddy cop movie follows Sarah Ashburn (Bullock), a rigid FBI agent forced to team up with Shannon Mullins (McCarthy), a brash undercover Boston street cop to solve a high profile drug cartel.   In a recent interview with EW.com Feig relates  “The Heat” further as, “Ashburn’s been in the FBI for a long time. She’s a great agent but she’s slightly over-confident, a little intolerant of anybody who isn’t at her level, so she showboats a little bit. She gets sent to Boston to help crack this case about this drug lord that nobody can figure out. And she has to work with Melissa’s character because Melissa’s a street cop who knows the neighborhood. But she’s used to doing everything by herself and they band together, but it takes a long time for them to bond.  So the fun starts there.”

Review: Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

Hansel and Gretel Poster

Skillful Sibling Hunters versus the powerful witch murderers. This old tale that wears new concept of plot makes the audience awe for another sequel. Hansel and Gretel must have Part 2. This is the movie that I want to watch another and another and another again. The scenes are terrific and I love how Hansel and Gretel Slashing and burning bad witches.

About the movie? the scenes are awesome. You don’t want to close your eyes because you don’t want to miss any single scenes. The action pack is perfect. Love to see Hansel and Gretel techniques on how they capture and burn the witches. The tragedy they suffered triggered their selves being well trained witch hunters.Though, the reason of becoming witch hunters are because they suffered terrible experience from the hand of the witch that trapped them after their father abandoned them in the forest. Until they found out the truth about what happened to their parents. The tragic scenes that brought to the siblings to hunt all the witches in order to give justice to their parents’ death. There are lot of suspense that you can’t predict until it was reveal at the latter part of it. That’s an ingredient of the movie that I always looking for. A movie that is not unpredictable until the end. Cool right…

Playful and heartbreaking, this is a lovely show from the New International Encounter company, an ensemble of actor-musicians who have charm oozing from every pore. The telling gets right to the dark heart of the story, but does so with the lightest of touches and a sprinkling of live music and humour. Moreover, are Hansel and Gretel innocents adrift in an unforgiving world, or just murderers and thieves?

This film is a kind of movie that reflects siblings without parents’ care can still survive and help each other. Through their bad experienced from the bad witch that trap them  after their father abandoned them in the forest, they learn to help each other to survive and develop their selves into mighty and skillful witch hunters. Just like in real life, those children that abandoned by their parents are turning their life to be protective by means of helping each other.

I swear… This is a movie that you must watch. Your money is worth it. Well,I will watch again..Come on.. Let’s watch Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters into cinemas nearest to you..




Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg directs “Lincoln,” adapted from the book of Pulitzer Prize winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner and starring Academy Award-winners Daniel Day-Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field – which essays a time in Abraham Lincoln’s life when he is in the most perilous final four months of his presidency.


Master storyteller and filmmaker Steven Spielberg whose works span and engage all ages as seen in “Jurassic Park,” War of the Worlds,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List,” “Empire of the Sun,” “Jaws” and “ET,” creates a never-before-seen perspective of America’s most beloved president in “Lincoln” as played by Daniel Day-Lewis, two-time Academy Award winner and this year’s Best Actor at the Golden Globe Awards for his portrayal of Lincoln.


Spielberg creates a gripping historical thriller during a brief time in history when Abraham Lincoln is at both the pinnacle and bottom of his career as a nation’s leader.   The political genius that is Lincoln is brought to life on the big screen, inviting audiences directly into the heart and soul of Lincoln’s final achievements. The Lincoln who emerges is a man of raw paradoxes: funny and solemn, a playful storyteller and fierce power broker, a shrewd commander and a vulnerable father. But in his nation’s darkest hour, when the times demand the very best of people, he reaches from within himself for something powerful and everlasting.

This compact, immersive concept for the film enlivened Spielberg. It would, when all was said and done, engage his filmmaking instincts on a different level than any film that has come before in his extensively diverse filmography.  Says Spielberg: “We came to focus on the last four months of Lincoln’s life because what he accomplished in that time was truly monumental. However, we wanted to show that he himself was a man, not a monument. We felt our best hope of doing justice to this immensely complicated person was to depict him in the midst of his most complex fight:  to pass the 13th Amendment on the floor of the House of Representatives.”


“My movies more often are told through pictures, not words. But in this case, the pictures took second position to the incredible words of Abraham Lincoln and his presence,” Spielberg explains. “With ‘Lincoln,’ I was less interested in an outpouring of imagery than in letting the most human moments of this story evolve before us.”

In stripping Lincoln’s final days down to their most electrifying yet stark moments of debate, political machinations, family ties and private fears and hopes, Spielberg and Kushner uncovered the gripping—and unpredictably human—nature of a democracy’s greatest battle in action. “The film does have quite a bit of suspense,” he notes, “and it could, at times, even be seen as a kind of political thriller.”


Longtime Spielberg producing partner Kathleen Kennedy agrees that the film takes an interesting turn in the ongoing evolution of the director’s career. “Steven has always loved history and has made many movies with a historical context—and I think he recognized that some of the most interesting characters came from history,” she observes. “But Steven knew that with ‘Lincoln,’ he wouldn’t create a conventional biopic. Instead, he and Tony attempted to find the most intimate way to show the power of Lincoln’s achievements as President, through the exploration of the end of slavery and other key events that took place during his presidency.”

Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” provides an intimate immersion into the American leader’s most revealing moments, at a time when the dark shadow of slavery lifts and a country torn by war must be made whole.  It is in this final four months the Lincoln’s full measure of the man—his passion and his humanity—came to bear on his defining battle:  to plot a forward path for a shattered nation, against overwhelming odds and extreme public and personal pressure.

“Lincoln” will open February 20 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
