Episode 124- DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE

DHWAV

With Christmas just around the corner, and a past history of discussing Die Hard movies during the holidays, late November seems like a good time to talk about the decidedly non-Christmas-centric Die Hard With a Vengeance. We loved it when we were kids, but how does it hold up now sandwiched between the two original Die Hard films, and ones that feature Kevin Smith and Russia?

Episode 67- DIE HARD 2

dh2!

Christmas is the time of year when we all celebrate the birth of John McClane, so what better way to kick off a month of seasonally-themed podcasts than to discuss Die Hard 2 (sometimes subtitled Die Harder). The second installment of what used to be a trilogy (now it’s more of a long-winded Rocky-style franchise), Die Hard 2 finds McClane battling an evil Colonel gone rogue (Willam Sadler) and a surly Scrooge of an airport cop (Dennis Franz) while his wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is stuck on an airplane that might crash at any moment with that guy who hates Bill Murray.

We loved it as kids, but does it hold up now? Is that John Leguizamo playing a henchman? Does William Sadler have a nice singing voice? What was it like at Nakatomi Corporation after the events of Die Hard? To hear us answer these questions and more, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!

Episode 35- Death Becomes Her

Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep, Academy Award-winner Goldie Hawn, and the guardian of Nakatomi Plaza himself, Mr. Bruce Willis star in Back to the Future director Robert Zemekis’ 1992 dark comedy Death Becomes Her. And when we say dark, we mean dark; there’s not a single likeable character in this flick, and two thirds of the cast are undead. To us as kids in the ’90s, it seemed both edgy and hilarious, with state-of-the-art special effects. How does it play now? Can any movie that features a cameo by Fabio be taken seriously? Why is Isabella Rossellini wearing a necklace for a shirt? I repeat: a necklace for a shirt! When is it appropriate to stick a candelabra through a human torso? To answer these questions and more we’re joined by our friend Johnnie Walker! Download the episode below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!

Episode 19- DIE HARD

Happy DIE HARD day! Or, in other words, Merry Christmas! A lot of people don’t consider DIE HARD to be a Christmas movie, but we here at Rewatchabilty believe it deserves its place among classics such as Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life. What makes John McTiernan’s 1988 blockbuster a Christmas film, not merely a film set at Christmas, is the redemptive story of John McClane– McClane’s Christmas Eve transformation, from selfish lout to courageous hero, is reminiscent of Charles Dickens’ immortal story The Muppet Christmas Carol… I mean, A Christmas Carol.

There’s no doubt about it, DIE HARD is as Christmasy as Egg Nog, Rudolph, and Bing Crosby making awkward small-talk with David Bowie. It’s one of the best movies ever, and anyone who thinks otherwise should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart! Yippie-Kay-Yay, and Merry Christmas!
