Bradley Thomas’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hans Gruber: [on the radio] Mr. Mystery Guest? Are you still there?
John McClane: Yeah, I'm still here. Unless you wanna open the front door for me.
Hans Gruber: Uh, no, I'm afraid not. But, you have me at a loss. You know my name but who are you? Just another American who saw too many movies as a child? Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John Wayne? Rambo? Marshal Dillon?
John McClane: Was always kinda partial to Roy Rogers actually. I really like those sequined shirts.
Hans Gruber: Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?
John McClane: Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.
It’s a Christmas movie and a damn good one too. Highly entertaining. Some don’t know this but Bruce Willis was 33 when he made this...his breakthrough role...yea he had done things before it but this is the one that put him on the map. Kinda interesting he was that old when he made this. Jan De Bont’s camera work is great. He would go on to direct one of the greatest action thrillers ever made...SPEED.
33 seconds in, the best kill in Die Hard
Ho Ho Ho
