Die Hard - 029

The 80’s are beloved for many reasons, but at the top of the list is the surplus of over the top action movies.  Die Hard fit the mold, but it also changed the paradigm for the genre. The feature was built on a solid plot, a strong cast, and featured a villain that had a surprising level of depth.  Toss in great special effects and a grip of cheeky one-liners, and you get a classic that stands the stands the test of time. “Yippee ki yay, mother****er!”

Caleb and the gang take a deep dive on the cast, production, source material, and debate whether or not Die Hard should be considered a Christmas movie.

The show wraps with another round of Cryptogeekology and another round of Caleb knowing too much about nerdy things.
