Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. John McTiernan. 1988. 131 mins. 35mm. With Bruce Willis, Bonnie Bedelia, Alan Rickman, Reginald VelJohnson, Paul Gleason, William Atherton. Not satisfied with simply being one of the great action movies of the 1980s, Die Hard has steadily become a beloved Christmas movie as well. Easily the best holiday fare to feature heavy artillery, pyrotechnic explosions, and Bruce Willis walking barefoot across shards of glass, Die Hard pits retired New York cop John McClane against a vicious cadre of international terrorists, who have interrupted an office Christmas party to take control of L.A.’s new Nakatomi Plaza skyscraper. With McClane’s estranged wife (Bedelia) among the hostages, his fight to single-handedly conquer the bad guys and save the day is also a campaign for family restoration–a holiday wish if ever there was.
