At the scene where Powell first looks at the Nakatomi building from that gas station, the sign says regular fuel is $0.74 a gallon.

I got my drivers license in '97, and gas was right around $0.90 a gallon.  And I loved Die Hard.

But as gas prices get higher, the sequels get worse.

Conspiracy!

I always thought it was popular because the whole thing is a metaphor for a divorce where the husband gets screwed over.

I always thought it was just the attitude of being a person employed to carry a gun, but having athority issues.


I miss the days when my mustang wouldn't hold $15 worth of gas.

I nearly spent $40 on my last fill-up.



In 2009 I paid an average of $2.18 per gallon and just over $20 per fill-up.

Last year I paid $2.64 and almost $28.50 per fill-up.

THIS year I'm doing $3.36 and an even 28.00 per fill-up (So far).

Good Lord.

Well they did get it right in Die Hard when Hans says "Just another member of a bankrupt culture that thinks he's John Wayne."

The original Die Hard was awesome because the villains were great, the hero could be identified with, the supporting cast were excellent and the story was intriguing/plausible.

Plus back then the Beretta 92, HK P7m8, MP5 and Steyr AUG were the sexiest guns around.  Movie had all of them.

I think we just discovered that your 12.  





Notice I said back then.  Back then the ACR wasn't around.  It wasn't even thought of.  It's inventor was probably still popping pimples and pinning for Alyssa Milano.

Hey, I was 5 months old when that movie came out.

And I still pine for Miss Milano.

I remember when premium was 25¢/gallon and 100 octane. Of course the gasoline had tetra-ethyl lead as the primary anti-knock compound.

I think Alan Rickman(Hans) played real great villian.

It was popular because it's a Christmas movie.  Just a newer version of "It's a Wonderful Life".

No, you're thinking of "Lethal Weapon".

DH is more like "Miracle on 34th Street".
