ConsLack Of Commentary Feature From "Brucie".

Prior to 1987, very few people had heard of an actor called "Bruce Willis". Apart from a couple of uncredited film appearances, he was best known for his role as David Addison in the cult television detective series "Moonlighting" alongside Cybil Shepherd. In 1987, he was cast as workaholic...

For me, Die Hard is possibly the best film ever made, barring Terminator 2. To see the film finally on DVD is a joy. After years of seeing it in normal TV aspect and boring old mono sound, I have finally basked in the glory of the Dolby 5.1 and the films original dimensions of 2.35:1. Call me...

Well, what can you say about the film that set up its own genre? This film, though may not have been the first of it's type, was the one that spawned a whole slew of copy cats who used the high-concept of "Die Hard in a ." This is the first film of the Die Hard Trilogy. It is Christmas and John...
