The Best Quotes of 2013
2013, we’re not quite done with you yet. To close off our coverage of the year gone by, we wanted to hand over the mic to the actors, directors and other film professionals who made waves, headlines, faux pas, announcements, pronouncements or funny gags throughout the year. And we’re changing up the format this time out, scouring the whole internet and not just our own archives for these little nuggets, mainly because we’re fairly sure you’ve all avidly consumed, and committed to memory every word of each of the 200-odd interviews we ran in 2013, and we’d be preaching to the choir.

After working with Nicolas Winding Refn, Ridley Scott, Zack Snyder, Steven Soderbergh and hell, even Madonna, you would think that plenty of doors are already open for Oscar Isaac. Well, we're sure teaming with the Coen Brothers for "Inside Llewyn Davis" (and knocking it out of the park) kicked down a few more.

Why, why, why? Quick, can you name a franchise that has been driven into the ground worse than the “Die Hard”/John McClane series? You can’t say “Alien” because, as mediocre as “Prometheus” was, it’s still a zillion times better than any of the “AVP” series movies. Jack Ryan sure wasn’t looking healthy last time anyone checked, but that’s why there’s a reboot (scheduled for dumping ground season in January). The “Indiana Jones” series only has one outright disaster (‘Kingdom of Crystal Skulls’) and while there was two terrible “Terminator” films in a row, there were two great ones, and a reboot is on the way. And then you have “Die Hard.” Many will argue two and three were good, and for the sake of argument, let’s agree, but how do you go from the pitiful “Live Free And Die Hard” (PG-13 rating) to the even more intolerable, “A Good Day to Die Hard” (rated R) – easily one of the worst films of 2013? Well, only 20th Century Fox and the producers of those films can help you out there.

Sylvester Stallone Is Mad At Bruce Willis Over $1 Million Dollars

What's a million dollars between friends (or colleagues)? Apparently, a lot. As you might remember, the cinematic world did a collective HUH? when it was announced earlier this week that Harrison Ford was stepping into "The Expendables 3," while Bruce Willis was exiting. But the news was made all the more fascinating when in a tweet, Stallone called John McClane "greedy" and "lazy." Now it seems the story behind that animosity has surfaced.

“Red 2” begins with a cool, comic-book-style credits sequence, paying a short homage to its Warren Ellis-penned roots. Too short, in fact. Just as we’re starting to get into the warmly hued titles, we’re thrown headlong into the live-action, high-stakes world of retired government agents...shopping at Costco. The film has numerous issues, but the most distracting is the inconsistent bursts of stylized animations, buried between unimaginative shots and sequences. They serve as setting transitions, announcing our heroes’ arrival in Hong Kong and Paris, but they’re oddly skipped when the former spies land in London and Teterboro. Well, we understand the lack of fanfare for the New Jersey town, but London? “Red” helmer Robert Schwentke was apparently too busy directing “R.I.P.D.” to make the follow-up, so Dean Parisot makes an unremarkable return with his first feature since 2005’s “Fun with Dick and Jane.”

Die Hard
25 years ago today John McTiernan's "Die Hard" exploded in wide release onto screens nationwide and forever changed the landscape of action cinema. This wasn't just a box office smash, it was a genuine game-changer, one that made a star out of Bruce Willis and created its very own sub-genre. It's easy to forget now, after countless neutered airings on broadcast television and sequels that have all but turned the once-beloved brand into anonymous slush, just how profoundly "Die Hard" impacted movies back then.

Armageddon
Released 4th of July weekend 15 years ago, "Armageddon" was a little known indie picture examining an existentialist crisis triggered by meteors pummeling the earth. Joking aside, the Michael Bay disaster flick was balls to the wall epic. With a real late '90s gem premise -- a massive asteroid is on its way to faceplant earth and a ragtag team of oil-drillers is the world's only hope -- and a cast led by a not-yet-bald Bruce Willis and a fresh-faced Ben Affleck, even the Grinch-iest of critics must appreciate the sheer ridiculous "we’re saving the world, dammit" bravura of it (Gene Siskel said, "its audacity is almost amusing" and we concur). The movie also holds a special place as a veritable "Who’s Who" of "Oh, That Guy"-type actors (including Will Patton, Michael Clarke Duncan, Peter Stormare, William Fichtner, Keith David, and Jason Isaacs). "Armageddon" went on to be the highest grossing film of 1998 (beating out Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan"), inspire a EuroDisney attraction, and catapult Aerosmith's first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (no really, "I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing" is also the only number one debut on that chart from a rock group) into the hearts and karaoke machines of all real Americans.

While the sequel to "Red," the 2010 action comedy that starred Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman as over-the-hill assassins, doesn't open until the middle of July, Lionsgate and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are already plotting a third film, with screenwriting siblings Jon and Erich Hoeber back for a third go-around (according to the Hollywood Reporter). "Thank god!" said nobody.
