They’re going to make a fifth Die Hard film?
No. No, no, no no, no no, no no, no no, no no, no no, no no, no no, no!
This cannot be allowed to happen! The first Die Hard was my first exposure to Alan Rickman! The second movie is a staple of my winter holiday TV time! I have such fond memories of John McClane kicking every ass in the universe and being an acerbic smartass while doing it. They lucked out in that the fourth one was decent, but let’s not drive this franchise into the ground like so many sequels have done to my favorite flicks from my youth!
Lethal Weapon? Managed to string the goodness out for three films. The fourth one was so lame.
Highlander? Not even the addition of Sean Connery could rescue the series. There should have been only one!
Batman? Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson were great. Even Batman Returns was good. Then it became a cartoon.
The Matrix? Don’t get me started. Awesome fight scenes do not a masterpiece make – and they even took the awesome fight scenes out of the third movie and failed to replace them with so much as a shitty plot.
Die Hard is still a beloved set of action movies. Let’s leave it there! The Die Hard franchise is John Elway after he won his second Super Bowl – retire on top guys!
