CHANGED: Let's See Die Hard at the Capital

Let's see A Good Day To Die Hard at the Capital Theater

Note: This was originally the Meetup to go see John Dies At The End but unfortunately, the Capital changed the schedule. Theaters do that sometimes when they think a film isn't providing the draw that they had hoped for. My apologies to the folks that were looking forward to seeing this quirky little film.

Instead, I would like to suggest that we see some good old fashioned, suspend-your-disbelief, action adventure escapism.  A Good Day To Die Hard, the newest release in the Bruce Willis/John McLane/Die Hard franchise fits perfectly . Interesting trivia: do you realize that the first Bruce Willis Die Hard movie was made in 1988, 25 years ago?


Synopsis
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack - unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes. Yada yada yada. You really don't care about plots with a movie like this, do you?

Despite the recent popularity of washed up old man action adventure movies (Stallone's Bullet to the Head, Schwartneggers's  Last Stand, The Expendables, etc), I suspect that the producers of A Good Day to Die Hard, are testing the waters to see if they can hand off the franchise to a younger hero, in this case Jai Courtney, who plays McLane's son. The Die Hard franchise has just been way too profitable to retire.


Showtime is 7:10

If anyone would like to enjoy a quick appetizer or adult beverage before the show, let’s plan on meeting at the Luxe ( 6605 Detroit) across the street from the Capitol. Let’s shoot for 6:00 and I’ll try to get there earlier to watch for anyone who signs up

    Good movie, suspension of disbelief in high gear, but overall very enjoyable.

    On second thought, I think I'm going to catch the 6:20 at Bagly, cheaper, and you guys sit to far back, plus I'm still stuffed from Lunch!

    Changed: Please Note: I just checked the schedule at the Capitol this afternoon and it looks like they changed it . It looks like they are not going to carry John Dies At The End past this weekend. Sorry, but theaters do this sometimes when they think a film is not pulling a large enough crowd. Uh....anyone want to see Die Hard?

    I haven't been there either, I am coming early.

    The area itself is pretty well lit and there in a nice parking lot right next to the theater, just north on West 65th. Even walking to the Luxe is only half a block. We can always escort you to you car also.

    I've not been near this area before & I'll admit I'm concerned about safety. Anyone else? I don't want to walk to/from my car alone...

    February 14, 2013

    • Jason

      I've been there a few times, it's not bad. I can't speak for Pat or the others, but I'm sure we can head out as a group. There's a public lot just across Detroit from the theater, if I recall. If you want to send me a text when you get there, I can meet you when you get there, too. [masked]
