Watching the Die Hard movies has been interesting. For one, I learned that I have never actually watched any of the Die Hard movies from start to finish before now. I’m not sure how I managed that, saying as how I was alive during the late 80s and early 90s. If I had to guess, I’d say my mother had something to do with that. For years she didn’t let me and my brother watch Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom because the heart-ripping scene was “too violent” in a futile attempt to protect her children from totally awesome gore. So Bruce Willis running around popping terrorists like tick tacks probably was a little above the violence threshold.
A few months… or so? ago, I reviewed Die Hard, which was also the first time I watched that movie in its entirety. Suddenly, as if by magic, Die Hard 2: Die Harder appeared on Netflicks and I knew what I had to do because, to quote Homestuck (and honestly, is there any time when I’m not quoting HS?), “we are motherfuckin entrenched in this bitch.”
