Die Hard tops Time Out's list of the 100 greatest action films of all time

I am partial to lists and the ranking of the greatest movies of all time, especially when broken down by genre. With over a hundred years worth of movies to choose from, it can sometimes be daunting to whittle a list down. Plus, any list is up for debate since folks don't always hold the same movies in the same regard. Take for instance this new list from the good folks at Time Out...

Top 10 Biggest Dicks in Movie History (NSFW Video Edition)

There are some movies that can get by with some T&A while others can have some explosion and massive spectacles of special effects. There are even movies that can showcase a cute kid or a dog and that wins over audiences. But, everyone loves a good dick. If you truly want your movie to succeed, give your audience a nice big dick on screen. Often, these dicks become more popular than the...

The guys over at CinemaSins figured out the numbers, broke out their trusty calculators, and came out with an impressive total. It's John McClane, what did you expect?

Check out Mondo's fantastic new poster for Die Hard by artist Laurent Durieux

Just in time for the holiday season, Mondo has released their latest poster, and in my opinion, it's pretty sweet. The new poster was from their "Mondo Mystery Movie" event, and it's for the classic action/Christmas movie DIE HARD, featuring the Nakatomi Plaza from the film in a broken snow globe. The shards of glass are a nice nod to the infamous scene in DIE HARD,...

Die Hard 6 screenwriter shares some details on how he is bringing John McClane back to basics

If we can agree on one thing about the last two DIE HARD movies, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD and A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, it is that they are as far away from being DIE HARD movies as possible. Even so, the films grossed enough to warrant a sixth entry in the series. The currently titled DIE HARDEST is going to break with the pattern of the last three films and tell an original story not...

Brad Bird: Why the OG 'Die Hard' Still Rules

A little part of us dies inside when a DIE HARD movie is not successful. This is the case with A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD. But what made it fail? Depends on who you are talking to. Terrible villains, over the top action, embarrassing CGI, bad script, and boring are a few of the examples I've overheard. However, let's not focus on that. Remember the feeling you got when you saw the...

Review: Die Hard (1988)

PLOT : When NYPD Detective John McClane shows up at his wifeís work, he isnít the only visitor. Soon after he arrives, a group of terrorists show up taking...

C'mon Hollywood: Save John McTiernan!

Let me say, first and foremost, that I am by no means a legal expert. You wouldn’t go to an auto mechanic to fix your garage door, nor should you come to a movie geek for legal advice. Good? All right. Now, most of us are aware of the huge impact that director John McTiernan has had on film. Some may try to downplay it, but the fact remains that he’s directed two of the...

Director John McTiernan is going to prison

John McTiernan , the iconic director of DIE HARD, PREDATOR, THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR remake, and THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, is heading to jail to serve a one year sentence handed down back in 2010. McTiernan was found guilty of perjury and lying to the FBI in connection to the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal. Pellicano, who is serving 15 years himself, was hired by many in...

Cool Videos: Director John McTiernan discusses his cinematic language

It's been nearly 10 years since director John McTiernan has delivered a new film, due largely to the legal snafu he's involved in with Anthony Pelicano (which will likely result in a year of jail time if his last appeal to the Supreme Court doesn't go through).  Although that case has stifled the filmmaker from making any new films, there is a healthy roster of hits, most notably the...
