WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Our entertainment insider Jennice Fuentes got a first look at the latest Die Hard movie. Bruce Willis is back in "A Good Day to Die Hard."

Willis' John McClane goes looking for his estranged son in a Russian prison played by Jai Courtney.

We saw a USA Today reviewer call the movie a "feeble attempt to rehash action-hero glories." The Die Hard franchise is 25 years old -- is it time to give it a rest? We ask Fuentes.

"Beautiful Creatures" features witchcraft and a Romeo-and-Juliet style romance. Based on the first book in the young-adult series "the Caster Chronicles," this Juliet is named Lena and she is a witch-in-training. A-listers Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons, and Emma Thompson co-stars as the magical adults waiting to see how Lena will use her developing powers. Fuentes tell us what she thinks about the movie.

"Escape from Planet Earth" has also escaped the eyes of the critics, since it wasn't screened in advance and that's usually a bad sign -- although the targeted child audience may not care. The animated family comedy tells the story of an astronaut responding to a distress signal from a notoriously dangerous alien planet.

Worthy of seeing? Fuentes gives her opinion.
