I'd go even further than that and say that Die Hard 4.0 is the best of the Die Hard movies so far...

I'll side with AxlReznor and say DH 4.0 is the best of the franchise

I would say Die Hard 2 is the best of all the Die Hard films.


I think this video sums up my feelings best- click

Cheers.

It boggles my mind how anyone can say a virtual remake and a sequel in name (and star) only can be better than one of the best action movies ever made!

Didn't "get it" is not a derogatory remark. Just a term that's used for people who don't like a film that a lot of people love. I'm pretty sure no one's suggesting that you didn't understand the film, just that you didn't "get" the appeal.

Spot on Reznor that is excately what I meant.

Also can't belive someone thinks Time Cop is more advanced than Looper, almost pissed myself laughing when reading that post


Well at least TimeCop doesn't pretend it is highly original when it isn't and begin a totally random telekensis subplot two thirds of the way through

I have just watched Lesbian Vampire Killers which I missed on release - while it is certainly no classic, I really quite enjoyed it !
Okay, I had consumed a small beer and I was a little tired, but for a cheesy late night laugh, it's actually alright

I really like Die Hard 2 but it is no way better than the original. None. If anything, it shows more of the faults of basic premise. It's just a poor, albeit entertaining, imitation of an action classic.

But what makes you think Looper was trying to be highly original? For me it is a nice twist on a number of older ideas, but apart from that is just very good filmmaking from a good director and very good cast.

Neither does Looper, really, the TK is established at the start. I admit it could have been done better but it's still there at beginning of the film.

Looper was kind of average with a very unoriginal 3rd act.

Cabin in the Woods was not very good (or nearly as clever as it wants to be)


Both of these. In fact,Timecop, despite Van Damme, was better than Looper.


NOT DESPITE, BECAUSE.


I like Looper AND Timecop though, like a true maverick.

Me too. I like a lot of Van Damme's earlier stuff, actually.

I really dislike Inception, initially I thought from the trailers and given the director I couldn't fail not to like it, when in fact it was bore fest which played to heavily on a confusing concept of dreams within dreams, certainly not a Matrix beater I was hoping for.

My unpopular Inception opinion would be that snowmobile chases are fucking boring so Inception manages to combine one of the best action sequences (JGL's weightless fight) with the most yawnsome (snowmobile).

I've seen the movie one and a half times (once in the cinema and part way through on DVD) and it's amazing that I cannot remember anything about the movie except what's on the trailer and it involved dreams within dreams. It was that memorable that I can't remember a thing about except something about dreams within dreams which kept my attention for about 2 minutes, same can be said for Sweeny Todd but I only watched about 1 hour of that on DVD.

To sum up, Snaze while Termintor 2 is good I still find it a bit overated, and no its not the best in the series.

And yes not everything in Inception works, but enough does to make it a compelling watch.

What really bugs me about the snow fight is that I can't tell who anyone is, or why they're fighting. I just wanted them to hurry up and get to the climax with Cillian Murphy and Liam Neeson.

I mean Pete Postlethwaite

Dont get me wrong, i like T2, i just dont think it even comes close to the lean, mean, streamlined original. I always thought it suffered having Arnie as the "Good Terminator" to capitalize on his then popularity.

Yeah I need to re-watch it. All I can remember about the snowmobile scene was wishing they'd get out of the way and show the weightless fight.

That's a fair point and I'm inclined to agree with you. I thought you were promoting the virtues of T3 and T4 over T2.

I was about to say what sort of crazy person would say that but then realised that someone was claiming that Die Hard 4.0 is better than the original not much further up this very page!

If that happens and the person who says it is being 100% serious, I shall weep for the future of mankind. Or something. Anyway, it will be very bad and that person will be a bit of a numpty.

Just finished reading Peter Benchley JAWS and I have to say I now prefer it to the movie.
Now,I'm not saying the Spielberg film is rubbish,its obviously not,but Benchleys story just had alot more going for it.
Characters were (to pardon the pun) more fleshed out,and no more so with Brodys wife Ellen.
I'm not going to spoil the book though.I just now prefer it to the movie.
