    I had friends who saw 'A Good Day to Die Hard' they both gave it a C- ...one friend stated this is film that killed the series!!

    @narrator I'm very interested to check out Side Effects. I wouldn't say I've become disillusioned. I find that while I'm not always blown away by Soderberg's recent films, I always admire his technique, and have enjoyed all his movies in the past few years to a degree. Contagion was really good, and then Haywire and Magic Mike to a lesser extent, but the way I've been hearing people talk about Side Effects makes me really intrigued.

    Hmmm... I'm surprised that Side Effects is doing so decent, though it was surprisingly cool. If you're one of the many who haven't yet seen it, there is actually little room to judge. It's getting good reviews for a reason, people. Anyone who has become disillusioned with Soderbergh in the past few years like I have should definitely check it out if only to restore some faith in the once promising auteur.

    @dan1 I wouldn't really call Side Effects garbage. I don't really have any interest in it but it's gotten really good reviews.

    @kingbrady That would be me who said it should be called "Old habits Die hard" lol!

    A good day to die hard....had a very weak story, quick paced, amazing action....but it wasnt your typical Die Hard...just seemed rushed... @ghostman they already discussed a sixth before this came out.....someone on here made the comment for a title of the 6th being...."Old Habits Die Hard"...they have to return to Die Hard 3 and 4 for a better way (bring back Samuel L Jackson)

    @dan1 Tell me about it, this January and Feb have been brutal... The closest thing that looks good is Dead Man Down on March 8th.

    Oh hey look, Good Day to Die Hard is a box office hit. I guess that means a sixth film is being made!

    Garbage weekend full of garbage movies (besides SLP and ZDT). Typical of February.

    @moviegeek what??? What made it lame?? It was realistic but it actually had a good story and wasn't predictable. I thought it was really good. A lot of action and humor

    Pretty close race for the Top 3. I'm actually very surprised Beautiful Creatures did so poorly, but Identity Thief is just racking up the dough...

    I actually enjoyed A Good Day to Die Hard and I'm glad it is on pace for almost 40 million in its first 5 days. The movie could have been better yes but hopefully since it did so well at the box office we get a better sequel.

    I was sure date movies would own this Valentines weekend, guess not. Nice to see SLP and ZDT still holding up.

    Identity Thief was absolutely awful, Die Hard was really lame too.

    @moviegeek Not hooray. The Beautiful Creature books are really impressive and they get better. I was looking forward to the sequel films, and I actually heard the first one was decent.

    Die Hard was so lame. The only good news in this chart is how well Silver Linings Playbook is holding up.
