So, you really thought you nailed it out of the park on Valentine’s Day, huh friend? Well think again. Unless you are actually Bruce Willis you failed. It isn’t just a matter of opinion either, it’s raw scientific fact.
A recent Valentine’s Day survey commissioned by IMAX® Corporation (NYSE:IMAX; TSX:IMX) revealed that – of U.S. adults who would spend Valentine’s Day with a star whose movie is opening that day (Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel or Jack O’Connell) – 68 percent would spend the evening with Bruce Willis, star of the upcoming action film A Good Day to Die Hard.
The survey, conducted online by Harris Interactive among more than 2,000 U.S. adults (18+) in February 2013, asked participants which of the following movie stars who have major movies coming out this Valentine’s Day they would most want to spend the evening with: Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard), Josh Duhamel (Safe Haven) or Jack O’Connell (Beautiful Creatures).
Additional findings showed:
· Men are more likely to choose Bruce Willis than woman (85 percent vs. 54 percent)
· Women are more likely to choose Josh Duhamel than men (40 percent vs. 13 percent)
And even if you ARE Bruce Willis, you failed too, because at this point, your woman is tired of you and your rugged sexiness. Guys, you just can’t win.
Unless you have a 10 inch wiener made of chocolate that sprays money and hate sports, you’ve got no shot.
Christmas movies are as much a part of holiday tradition as trips to Grandma’s house and a stocking hung over the fire. Though most people would list the classics – ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ ‘A Christmas Story,’ ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas,’ etc. – there are some unexpected Christmas flicks that will fill you full of good cheer this holiday season.
Here’s just one of Bullz-Eye’s five entries for unconventional Chistmas movies:
Admit it: you secretly fantasize about a gang of white-collar criminals hijacking your holiday party and killing the fast-talking weasel in sales who won’t shut the hell up. You’ve read the praise about “Die Hard” serving as the blueprint for every action movie made since – and it’s true, as the most popular studio sales pitch between 1989 and 1997 was “Die Hard on a ____” – but it is grossly overlooked as a holiday classic, and that is just wrong. It’s funnier than “Home Alone,” more heartwarming than “The Santa Clause,” and it has what all Christmas movies lack but some real-life families have: a body count. Bruce Willis has rarely been better, and Alan Rickman completely rewrote the rules on action movie villains. If you feel like going for camp value, watch the sequel, “Die Harder,” with the TV dub track. Yippie-ki-yay, Mister Falcon.
The full list of five is available over at the Bullz-Eye blog, including clips from each entry. Merry Christmas!
