Guest Post by Gaylord Campbell.
One of my favorite actors of all time is Bruce Willis, so I guess it comes as no surprise that the Die Hard films are among my favorite action films. I especially enjoy it when I am just randomly flipping channels on my DirecTV and I see one of the Die Hard movies come on. I am instantly hooked even though I have seen all of them at least a few times each. There is just something about Bruce Willis. It could be his bad boy attitude, or it could be that there are many layers to the character roles he takes on. John McClane is one of those characters. He is a tender father, a man trying to save his marriage, and a detective who will fight to the end to save the lives of people he doesn’t even know. Though all of the Die Hard films are great, the first one is by far the best. It is Christmas, and McClane is trying to save a room full of people from terrorists. His wife is one of the hostages and he will battle through anything to protect the love of his life. Yes, I romanticize the movie, but I know I can’t be the only one who does that! Though it is over 20 years old, it is still the best action adventure movie there is.
