Are you a die hard Die Hard fan?





My son came home last weekend. Much as I loved seeing him again, part of me wishes he'd delayed his visit for a week. That way, I could get to see this:


A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD

I'm in the weird position of feeling like the fourth one is an amazingly watchable movie, and indeed probably the only sequel I've seen thus far that I'd want to own, but that A) that doesn't prevent me from thinking none of them are actually necessary after Die Hard and B) I still dislike large portions of Live Free or Die Hard, because I think its villain is a complete worthless jackass. I like Simon and his mute GF from Die Even Harder Than You Already Died (#3) better than I like that idiot, and I dislike #3 so badly I will turn it off if it comes onscreen. In a way, I think I assess all the sequels as though they were fanfic; Live Free is the best, most interesting spin on the original material, especially since it adds a truly great OC in the form of hacker Matt, ad I like its update of Lucy McClane; Die Hard 2 is the most by-the-numbers, a literal remake, slightly transposed but involving almost all the old stalwarts who aren't already dead; the only thing worth keeping about #3 is Zeus, though I do love Jeremy Irons's terrible parody of his little bro's equally terrible fake-Amurrican accent (a Gruber family in-joke, if there ever was one).

An interesting piece of trivia, especially if you watch Mike and Molly: Carl's old gran's boyfriend (the local preacher), is played by Reg VelJohnson who also played Sergeant Al Powell in the original Die Hard.
