A Good Day to Die Hard

No Comments 3 July 2013

Maybe a decade ago I stumbled into a Die Hardfilm on the road somewhere. I wanted to wind down in a hotel room. The action flik that I never wanted to see in a cinema was much better than I anticipated.  This sequel A Good Day to Die Hardis just plain old stupid.

Thank God for moderate expectations. Silver Linings Playbook was much better than I anticipated. Pat (Bradley Cooper) remains undiagnosed with bipolar personality disorder until he finds his wife in the shower cheating with a colleague from work. Pat almost kills the man. His lawyer manages to keep him out of prison by letting the state lock him up in a mental hospital.
