Junkfood Cinema: Die Hardlies

Under Siege

Warner Bros.

This week, Cargill and I are walking on, walking on broken glass. That is to say we are treading dangerously over the broken shards of Die Hard ripoffs.

John McClane not only made trouble for Hans Gruber, he distinctly altered the course of action cinema for years to follow. Brian gives his Slop 10 of “Die Hardlies” while Cargill…well…grimaces mostly.

You may or may not believe which films make the cut.

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
