Believe me, a lot of people have said this and I agree with them, the 5th movie makes the 4th one look like a masterpiece. There's a shit tonne of CGI, repeated lines of dialogue, McClane's annoying son, you can hardly see what's happening with the shaky camera, and a twist which you can spot from a mile away. The only good thing about the movie was this cool car chase which lasted a good 10-15 minutes, with this truck just blasting through the streets, destroying everything in its path.

McClane seemed like a superhero in 4 and 5, instead of the underdog type character he was in the first three.

I have a similar attitude to Indiana Jones and Star Wars, for me, there's only the first three Indiana Jones films [4th one doesn't exist], and the original Star Wars trilogy.

Three Outlaw Samurai

I broke my somewhat stringent 'do not blind buy' rule when this was on sale for 15 bucks over the holidays and I'm really glad I did. This is a samurai film for those who hate samurai films. There's no preachy monologues and characters sitting around indian style talking about the plot, just a whole lot of action and a quick moving plot featuring likable characters. The cinematography and fight scenes were gorgeously executed. I'd be surprised if the cinematographer wasn't influenced by John Alton, really special stuff. This is what samurai movies should be - violent, fun and dazzling.

I should have watched this years ago. 9/10

I don't like the DH films very much. The first one is still comparatively disappointing in regard of its potential. I prefer Die Harder which has a less interesting story but is so much better directed. Renny Harlin was a good action director. DHWaE is entertaining stuff.

DH  6/10
DHer  7/10
DHwaV  7/10
DH4  5/10
DH 5  -

Btw as taste is differing as always I think that The Rock is partly a bore with a yawn style. 4/10

I grew up on the first 3 films, I watched the first DH when I was about 8, so they are kind of special to me.
For me, it's:
DH - 5/5
DH 2 - 3.5/5
DH 3 - 5/5
DH 4 - 3/5
DH 5 - 2/5

Well, it's a Michael Bay movie.

I've only seen the first and fourth Die Hards. I enjoyed the first well-enough but it didn't inspire me to seek out the rest. The fourth I saw around the time it came out and remember very little.

you have to see the third one. with Jeremy Irons as a madman German terrorist/thief who robs the gold from the New York Fed and forces McLane to walk into Harlem wearing a sign that says "I HATE NIGGERS." Samuel L. Jackson plays his racist-very-reluctant partner.
The second one is great also (featuring one of the great endings in movie history), but IMO the third one is the greatest action movie ever made.
I think the first one has significantly higher ratings on IMDB but in my opinion the latter two are far and away better.

I think John McTiernan should return for Die Hard 6, and maybe one of the screenwriters behind any of the first three die hards.

For you, Die Hard lovers:

http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-simple-rules-not-screwing-up-die-hard-sequel/

It's a comedy article and the author has his own opinions on the topic. However, like most Cracked articles, it's very, very, very well documented and contains lots of interesting trivia:

Quote
A Good Day to Die Hard is the first script that was written just to be a Die Hard movie. Ever. The first Die Hard was originally written as a sequel to Commando (or a sequel to The Detective, depending on which source you consult), but when Arnold dropped out, they changed it at the last minute into a Die Hard. Die Hard 2: Die Harder was originally a book called 58 Minutes about a cop named Frank Malone who probably never even Die Harded a little bit. Die Hard With a Vengeance was originally supposed to be Lethal Weapon 4, but that also changed at the last minute, probably because turning Danny Glover's "too old for this shit" good cop into a "too racist for this shit" lunatic upset the buddy cop dynamic established in the first three. Finally, Live Free or Die Hard was originally called WW3.com, and it was based on a Wired article. About hacking. No one has ever started a movie with the intention of writing a Die Hard. Good Die Hard scripts are like McClane himself; they're the right script in the wrong place at the wrong time.

ENDING to Die Hard 2:

The plane is leaking gas, leaving a trail of gas in the snow, McLane pulls out his lighter and lights the gas, the trail of fire shoots up and consumes the plane

Ok, and how could that be one of the great endings in movie history?
