Ann and Les just had a ball watching Live Free or Die Hard (2007.) If you’re looking for an action-packed thriller with a little boomer humor to boot this is the movie for you. Bruce Willis is back as John McClane, the NYPD detective with a mind and body, apparently, made of steel. No matter what is thrown at him or what he has to jump out of, he manages to survive with that charming smirk on his face. Justin Long is the unwitting victim in this one and he plays the young foil role with much enthusiasm. You just don’t know whether to give him a kick in the pants or a hug –and that’s just the way it should be. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends his favorite but lesser-know Bruce Willis film called The Last Boy Scout (1991.) It’s a Tony Scott film that pairs Mr. Willis with Damon Wayans for lots of fun, adventure and mayhem and one of the first roles for Halle Berry. Ann recommends another small film with Bruce Willis in it. Only, this time, he’s not the lead but a supporting player. Willis plays a mobster on-the-rise in the world of Dustin Hoffman’s brilliant Dutch Schulz and his flighty gunmoll girlfriend played by Nicole Kidman. Director Robert Benton did a great job bringing to the screen E.L. Doctorow’s book called Billy Bathgate (1991.)
