Guys, seriously. We need to talk about Die Hard.
We need to focus on the lines of dialogue that seem oddly poetic when taken out of context. We need to address how little sense the bad guys’ plan makes. We need to explore the homoerotic undertones and gender role panic subtext. We need to celebrate Alan Richman, Argyle, evil Argyle, Carl Winslow, the dickless EPA agent from Ghostbusters, the asshole Principal from the Breakfast Club, Robert Davi and of course, John McClane. We need to talk about cocaine yuppies, beard classifications, Holly’s hair and explosions what the movie says about Christmas and America and terrorism and more.
I’ve created a vehicle for us to do all of these things. My new twitter account is DIEalogueHARD. The password is hollymcclane.
Die Hard is on Netflix streaming. Please have at it.
-Please try to get quotes from the movie as accurate as possible. If you’re a little off, no biggie. (I’ve already screwed this up a couple of times.)
-Observations and commentary should be in all caps, to differentiate them from quotes ((I’ve already screwed this up a couple of times, too.)
-The preferred spelling is “yippie-ki-ay.”
-Also, I’m not sure if Twitter lets multiple people use the same account. If this doesn’t work, I guess we could twitter about it separately with the hashtag #DIEalogueHARD. That seems kind of sad, in a way, though.
