Glee: Bad Reputation

Last night's Glee was a lot of fun, but didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. It feels like they're just trying to cram in these songs and celebrity appearances without fully developing stories that allow them all to integrate seamlessly. So while the show has great songs, hilarious one-liners, and memorable moments, once I think about the episode as a whole I'm left wanting more. I love the show and enjoy it enough, but it's going to need to become a bit more cohesive if it's going to jump to the level of instant classics like the first half of the season was.

However, last night still had some great moments!

My favorite musical number: Run, Joey, Run

I'd actually never heard this song before so it was nice to come to the performance without any previous baggage or expectations. When she said she was going to do this song, I had no idea what to expect from the video. Then the video was just hilarious with her over the top acting. The last image just kills me!

My favorite one-liners: 

Brenda: I'm an alcoholic and I like pills. I hear that's your type. Let's go in the closet and pork!

Sue: Some people like to film themselves getting physical with their partner. I happen to enjoy revisiting the impeccable form of my jazzercise routines.

Brittany: I don't know how to turn on a computer.

Artie: You had me at sex tape. How can I help?

What were your favorite moments?

Too Much of a Good Thing: Die Hard

The Die Hard franchise just won't die. Four movies in, only two of them were really great, and we're about to be blasted with another one.

From A.V. Club:

Fox is currently in negotiations with screenwriter Skip Woods to write a new script for the franchise. Woods has already done several tentpole projects for the studio—including X-Men Origins: Wolverine and this summer’s The A-Team—and previously built his reputation for big-bang actioners with Swordfish and Hitman. There’s no word yet on whether Live Free Or Die Hard director Len Wiseman will return, or any details of possible plotlines to discuss, but Willis himself did say in an interview earlier this year that he would like to see John McClane go “worldwide”—as opposed to battling Twitter terrorists, or whatever that last one was about—so maybe this one will find him tossing dudes off the Eiffel Tower or something. 

See the list of films this guy previously worked on? I didn't like any of them. Well, it's too early to say for The A-Team, so we'll see on that one. Live Free or Die Hard was a disappointment, why must we continually go back to Die Hard? Stallone just announced that there will never be another Rambo movie, maybe John McClane should go the same route.
