Watching Willis: Carrie RIckey's favorite films

Posted: June 25, 2007

Movie critic Carrie Rickey picks five favorite Willis movies:

Die Hard (1988) Armed with a wisecrack and little else, NYPD cop John McClane outwits a dozen terrorists who have commandeered an L.A. skyscraper.

Pulp Fiction (1994) In one of the film's pretzeling plot lines, Willis plays boxer Butch Coolidge, whose face-off with a pawnbroker is a highlight reel of action-film moves.

Twelve Monkeys (1995) This time-traveling romance stars Willis as a convict who lands in a virus-plagued Philadelphia of the future.

The Sixth Sense (1999) Willis, a Philly shrink in need of a shrink, treats a haunted Haley Joel Osment.

16 Blocks (2006) A pickled N.Y. policeman marking time until retirement gets his morals and mojo back when he transports witness Mos Def through a gauntlet of corrupt cops to the courthouse.
