We conclude our Crime Spree series (for now) with the ultimate Christmas action movie – Die Hard! Elliot James is our unsuspecting novice and he joined us to watch Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman chew scenery and destroy a building. This child of the Rambo genre actually created a genre of it’s own (the “Die Hard in a…” genre) and established the superstar cred of both Rickman and Willis. Elliot was surprised to enjoy the movie and there is a good chance you might be too!
Up next, we are going to stay in the eighties and watch The Goonies!
