Posts Tagged ‘Die Hard’

Cracked compiled another article from movies.  This one labels several jobs from people in movies whose sloth or ineptitude allowed entire movies to transpire.  Take Tommy Lee Jones from above who plays a cop from No Country For Old Men.  Because of his slow methodology and sitting on the couch drinking milk, he allowed the main characters to go on an entire spiel when it could’ve been averted.  Check out the very cool article below.

Movies Made Possible by Others Sucking at Their Job

Another excellent Cracked photoplasty taking the names of movies very literally and photoshopping their covers or key scenes.  Thinking of names like: There Will Be Blood, Road House, or even the very hilarious Rain Man as pictured above can definitely produce some very witty results.  And don’t get me started on how worse things get when you start getting sexual puns involved.  Die Hard, That Thing You Do.  Oh boy.  Slightly NSFW, so keep your heads above water ladies and gents.

Movie Titles Taken Literally

It’s been confirmed that Bruce Willis has signed on for another Die Hard movie, titled ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’.  The thing is, their marketing campaign is something we’ve already seen.  One of the first posters released for the upcoming movie has something very similar about it…Oh wait, it’s the same exact poster.  Hit the jump to Filmdrunk to see their take on the matter.

Die Hard Tries Super Hard for Their New Poster

A long time ago, I wrote a very long article concerning my favorite comedy: Tropic Thunder.  It wasn’t soon after I published that article did I think of my favorite movies from other dramas.  It’s difficult to narrow them down, but I eventually settled on action movies.  I thought hard about which action movie is very much worth calling, ‘the best’.  But when you really come down to it, the most influential and generally awesome action movie of all time is “Die Hard”.  Almost every person can relate to the lovable John McClane, the idea of one man vs. a dozen is well displayed here, and the outside help elements are film staples we see in just about every action film these days.  It doesn’t take a movie critic or a film education to realize how elements from this movie have influenced the industry today, and I’ll try my best to break it down for you all.  But first, a summary.

John McClane, a New York police cop, is heading west to join his separated wife for Christmas and their children.  His wife is in the middle of a corporate Christmas party after a celebrated project wrap up, so he must make his way to the building itself.  Admist meeting her and her fellow co-workers, the building is suddenly taken hostage while John narrowly escapes.  In a game of cat and mouse between John McClane and the terrorists, led my Hans Gruber, he must shoot, trick, and explode his way back to his wife with the help of a local cop and a young limo driver.

Some movies revolve around a significant date that lends itself to propelling the story or adding a layer of complexity. Whether it be holidays or regular days of the year, there’s a lot of appeal in saving a day of the year to watch a specific movie. In this case, I have five days and five corresponding movies. I personally try my hardest to watch these five movies during the year. The movies below all use the specific dates and I recommend you make it a tradition to do the same.

[UPDATE]: How stupid of me to forget V for Vendetta on November 5th. Recently added.
