Die Hard

SOM 010[SOM #10]

Back from Back to the Future we bring you a quartet of reviews on the Die Hard quad, the first two of which are appropriately placed for the time of recording as Christmas movies.

With me once again is Neil Taylor of GameBurst. Also returning after his appearance in our Empire Strikes Back episode Mike Philips from The Fanboys Lunchcast, and sitting in to represent our community is Matthew Ramsey, better known on the DC forums as Mattharrier.

In this first show, we discuss the Nakatomi incident, John and Holly’s relationship and Hans’ status as one of the greatest movie villains of all time. We also look at how immensely influential Die Hard has been both for action-thrillers and the portrayal of cinematic heroes.

  1. I’m apologize for bringing this issue on this particular podcast because it’s completely off topic but I have to talk about it. Megan Fox is playing April O’Neil in the Ninja Turtles remake. I’m so angry right now I could have an anurism. Thank you Michael Bay for taking a S*it on my childhood. Oh well I already suspected it was going to suck because of the numerous problems it was having in pre-production and well this just confirms it. Again I apologize for this which has nothing to do with this masterpiece of film in die hard but I just feel angry beyond all reason right now because hollywood is treating some of my childhood icons like garbage. Rant over.

  2. As luck would have it, there’s a two-part Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles Gonzo podcast coning in a month or so. I’m fairly certain you’ll be well at home with those.
