A B movie is a movie that years and years ago would play before the feature film. It was usually short with a really low budget. It's what MST3K makes riffs of.

I wouldn't say B movie guy, but if you check your local redbox, you will find he has been a lot of straight to DVD stuff lately.

Pretty much. He's starred in a lot of garbage lately.

Willis was cast specifically for Looper. Other than that, he's fallen into the Nic Cage realm.

Red, the forthcoming Red 2, and Looper disagree with you.

Not in the sense of the actual definition of a "B" movie. For example, one may dismiss Die Hard, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Hart's War as being shitty movies (I don't necessarily think so . . . just saying), but that doesn't make them "B" movies.

And he's still considered a major star today by any objective measure.

Die Hard 5 disagrees.

The guy works. He's old school. Actors in the old days were always working, so long as there was work. Taking a break like Dicaprio is talking about was unheard of.

That's an interesting point. Most famous, talented and revered British actors (I'm talking about the best) would do virtually anything. They view(ed) their craft and art as their fricking job. It's simply what they do (did). Commercials, mediocre tv, low budget movies, etc. If you paid them, they showed up and did their best as a professional.

Who thinks any of these are shitty movies? I think most people would agree Die Hard is a top 5 all time action movie and Sixth Sense and Unbreakable are by far M Night Shymalan's best movies. I've never seen hart's War.

Beats me. I was just responding to 1999's B movie comment.

Anyone heard of or seen any of these? They were all released in the last two years. He was in 6 movies in 2012 alone.
