Yippee ki yay meal farmers! Welcome to the latest instalment of the Film Junk Premium Podcast! This time around we’re digging into one of the most beloved action franchises in cinema history; the Die Hard series. While we mostly agree the first three films are pretty solid — if not classic — we still manage to find lots to disagree on. Some highlights include a discussion about the logistics of calling an airplane from a landline, John McClane’s penchant for eyeliner, and Hans Gruber’s amazing Eurotrash tie. Meanwhile, things get a little tense as Sean attempts to defend Len Wiseman’s widely despised entry in the series. Is McClane just old and grumpy or has Bruce Willis lost the spirit of the original character? How do you get 2 gallons of water into a 3 gallon jug? Holly Gennero…hot or not? As a bonus, we also talk about the Die Hard inspired Steven Seagal classic Under Siege, co-starring a particularly rambunctious Tommy Lee Jones and Erika Eleniak’s eyebrows. So relax, take off your shoes, make fists with your toes, and enjoy this episode of the Film Junk Premium Podcast. (Note: this episode does NOT include A Good Day to Die Hard, which we’ll be discussing on the next episode of the Film Junk Podcast.)
