    I agree with Deborah; there was a lot more intelligence in this than so many action movies. The story was fairly straightforward; a robbery/hostage taking with one man trying to take them out a little at a time but some of the ways they went about it were very original. I think we should be thinking of the writers: Roderick Thorp who wrote the novel, Jeb Stuart and Steven E. de Souza (screenplay).
    Fun time. Thanks Phil!

    Great movie. I think I watched as recently as this year on blu ray, but I still found myself enjoying every twist and turn in the film. The dialogue is great, and Alan Rickman did a great job as Hans Gruber. It's been a while since I saw a movie on the big screen where Bruce Willis had hair! :) Thanks everyone for coming out to the movie, and to Pickle Barrel after.

      Oh yeah, the actor who plays Al Powell, Reginald VelJohnson, seems to enjoy playing a cop in all his rolls. Even on the TV show Family Matters he was a police officer. :)

    From the tongue-in-cheek "Holiday Classic" listing to the actual movie itself, a great night out!! Considering Die Hard was shot on film and traditional SFX were used, it stands up extremely well. Also, there's more intelligence lurking in these so-called action movies than most people realize. The after-party at the Pickle Barrel was also great fun. Thanks to Phil for organizing this!

    Hey, Phil, did you see they're playing Die Hard 2 the next day?

    • Phil D

      Thanks! Actually, I'll be busy on the weekend, so I won't be scheduling it. If there's a showing the following week, maybe I might. They keep putting it after the first one, so it's playing later.
