Collapse of a franchise

As I loved DIE HARD as a rich entertainment as well as an elegant exercise in filmmaking, I am really saddened to see the franchise fall to the level of LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD. I only lasted 28 minutes on the DVD timer, but every single minute was an excruciating pain to my moviegoing sensibilities. The writing., directing, acting and CGI were all uniformly inept. It was shocking to see Bruce Willis in a simple dialogue scene with two other actors be so obviously and crudely filmed on different days and different sets.

Enough of the pathetic flaws of this movie. What about the pathetic flaws in the minds and sensibilities of the dullards who created an audience for this empty exercise in prevailing commerciality? This planet's real problem is not global warming, it is global dumbing. If you sat all the way through this movie, you know who you are.
