A Good Day for Great and Powerful Snitches

PLOT:  John McClane is back but this time he is in Russia.

Bruce Willis returns for the fifth outing of the Die Hard franchise.  Now a senior cop goes to Russia to help his son but nothing is what it seems.  This is the shortest Die Hard movie and not the best it has action and humor to help it along.  The villain not good, a few strange potholes but if you like these kinds of movies you will like this.  It is not doing well in the states but it is raking in the bucks overseas so don’t be surprised if there is a Die Hard 6.


PLOT:  Prequel to the Wizard of Oz

I went to see this movie because the critics didn’t like it!! It is better than what they say but nothing is good as the original. Actor James Franco is Oz a magician, con man and loves the ladies.  He wants to be more than what he is and gets his chance when he is transported to the beautiful Land of Oz  The people there believe he is their savior and he acts it only to get the gold.  He flirts with Theodora (Mila Kunis) which is a bad idea and because of his actions she turns to the wicked witch of the West.

Kunis is very good but not as good as Margaret Hamilton in the Wizard of Oz. The other sister Evanora (Rachel Weisz) the wicked witch of the east is okay.  Michelle Williams as the good witch Glinda has more lines and is okay too.  Doubters should not see this movie or wait for cable.  You will want to see the Wizard of Oz again once you do see this movie. 

PLOT: A father goes undercover for the DEA to free his son from prison

This is not an action movie!!  The trailer is very misleading.  Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson plays a hardworking man who is willing to trap a major player of a cartel to save his son from prison. The film is series stuff for it is based on a true story and Johnson is REALLY acting.  It is very intense and very good.  You want to see The Rock in an action wait until GI Joe 2: Retaliation and Fast and Furious 6.
