I don't know if you look over old posts. But I noticed how you pointed out that Rickmans surprised look at the end was genuine. I was wondering if you knew that the scene in the elevator shaft was real too. Willis missed the ledge grab and his harness saved him. So they left it in and had him catch the second ledge on the next shot instead of reshooting it and having him catch it on the first try.

Why a gun when you are off duty? Because criminals are always on the clock. LA has crime also. What? He should trust a baggage handler won’t take it from his bag? It’s safest on his person. It was pre9/11 it was a different time

A Christmas classic that has been in my holiday movie rotation for years, great stuff! Please consider 'Gremlins' for your next seasonal installment 🎄🥃👍🏻

Die Hard 2 was meh, but Die Hard With A Vengeance was awesome. Of course after that it went downhill.

Their are two types of people in this world, people who think die hard is a Christmas film and people who are wrong.

I hate to do this to you Drinker, but are you aware of the Die HArd remake with JANE McLane and her lesbian wife in Nacotomi tower? Yeah, apparently this is a real thing in the works right now....

Hold up, The Rock, AF1 and Under Siege-inferior movies? I think the drink may have had 1 too many because those movies are definitely not inferior!
Chris B
Chris B Před 20 dny
@The Alcohologist Oh those two movies are definitely inferior. Likely due to inferior actors.
The Alcohologist
The Alcohologist Před 20 dny
@Chris B there is a difference in saying something is better versus something is inferior for one! The Rock and AF 1 are not inferior movies by any stretch of the imagination! You may have a preference of Ferrari over Lamborghini but you’d be hard pressed to say one is superior. As for me, I’d put all 3 on the same level, Sean Connery and Ed Harris deliver an amazing performance, that street chase is classic. Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman are also bring their A game to the film, who doesn’t love it when Ford says,” Get off my plane”!
Chris B
Chris B Před 20 dny
Wait a minute you think Nicolas Cage and Steven Seagal are good actors that made those movies better than the Holiday love story we know as Die Hard? I think not.

Drinker, (video idea) Die Hard delays the action quite a bit to setup characters. But today movies want to “grab you” right away. John Wick does something similar. Discuss positives and negatives.

Its not a christmas film though 😕

It’s definitely a Christmas love story. You need to watch it again. The characters John and Holly would be disappointed you didn’t notice.

As a 30 year old, all the 80's and 90's movies I grew up with, even the mediocre Arnie ones like True Lies and the generic forgettable ones are all miles better than the crap we are spoonfed these days. Rest in peace, Alan Rickman! I always watch this movie on Christmas Eve as a tribute, and what an amazing movie it is!

Apparently back then cops were allowed to carry around their service weapon... Of course now cops can't even carry mace lest someone accuse them of being "systemically racist", of course, AFTER the criminal has shot at aforementioned cop with a fucking stinger missile...

You know, after the memories this review stoked up, you really have to ask the question: what the hell HAS happened to Hollywood? Where did it all go wrong? Why does almost every action movie feel wooden and lifeless these days? Why can't they write good, memorable characters anymore? Mostly, I've forgotten the movie the moment the credits roll now. Not to sound like a grumpy old man, but really...

Best Christmas movie ever.
Dazgul Před 2 měsíci
I think the only slightly uneccesary element is the return of Karl after being hung. He comes back just in time to be shot by Al. A minor issue in an amazing film. It becomes even more minor in comparison to today's bullshit ridden offerings.

I missed this one, but funny thing is I did ended up rewatching Die Hard during the lockdown infested Christmas Eve. The movie did made my Christmas Eve feel christmas-y. Oh and, Alan Rickman is definitely one of the best action movie villain ever!

Absolutely one of the greatest action movies ever made. For me, not quite perfect though. The wayyy over-the-top and cartoonish cops and FBI guys always have me rolling my eyes a bit to this day. It's such a huge shift in tone from the harsh believability of the rest of the film that it always takes me out of the illusion for a minute. Surely a relatively minor complaint considering how great the rest of the movie is, but it still bugs me a bit and keeps it from getting a full 10 from me. Still a 9 though \m/

There are incompetent police, so I could understand foolish police captain, but there seemed to be some type of anti-FBI tone that the movie didn't really explain.

The Drinker should do Moonlighting. Bruce was never better in my opinion than during his Moonlighting period. He was witty, he was smart and John McClane is basically David Adison with a gun. He also improvised a lot of lines like he did on Moonlighting.
Rob Před 3 měsíci
John Mctiernan probably had Holly use her maiden name so Hans wouldn't find out her and Ole Blue Eyes were married

My favorite part will always be the henchman exchanging money in the background like they had a bet on if Holly’s boss would crack or if they’d kill him

the most hilarious thing is that in one of my country's TV channels they actually shown die hard 1-2 and 3 during the 24-25 and 26 and called it "Die Hard Christmas"

Right now feeling like we are living this movie. Trump is Mcclean and most of the Democrats are Gruber and his henchman. Most Americans and viewing audience are like the cops and tv viewers only knowing close to nothing but seeing the crazy s***storm of explosions.

The craziest part...Bruce Willis was NOT an action star at the time!!! He was a fucking comedian, and literally the LAST guy on the list!(and got laughed at for taking this role).... Perhaps that's what made it so good....just throwing someone weird into an action movie, made it very Real and good.

One of the things I noticed in the movie, was how you believed why Holly and John McClane would have gotten married in the first place in scenes where they weren't together. You could tell that they both saw how the other was intelligent.

No two ways about it, Die Hard along with Predator, Ghostbusters and a couple others, are the quintessential 80's action movies which despite their flaws (already covered on channels like Cinema Sins or How It Should Have Ended) are classics in their own right that have outshone all the sequels and rehashed rip-offs from the 90's and one remake from 2016 which will remain nameless. I've watched each of those movies a half dozen times already and even memorized the whole script at one point. Thanks to CSshows, I can watch clips of my favorite parts on demand.

The PDX Skeptic - Never Stop Learning
Absolutely agree with everything you said! The era this movie was made in wasn't weighed down by agendas and political dogma like so many movies today! An era where writers wrote to entertain not push current events further down the collective throat! I fully believe current movie writers could achieve the same, if they wrote the film themselves and didn't cave to the loudest voice in the room!

Been in the Falklands a while catching up on the vids, for me it's the pure profanity he shouts at Karl while he's putting the beat down, like a real man would, which compounds how good this film is.
beardedshadow Před 3 měsíci
Just watched it again a couple of weeks ago. It's a masterpiece. There were so many times where I was laughing almost hysterically, especially the whole 'throw the C4 down the shaft' extended scene. "They're using artillery on us!" lol. Or the lunatic from the FBI: "Just like fucking Saigon!"
