The Film ‘89 Podcast Episode 22 – ‘Ode To Joy’ – Celebrating 30 Years of Die Hard (1988).

In our special Christmas Episode of The Film ‘89 Podcast we’re joined by boxing expert, film writer and über cinephile, Jacob Rivera to discuss the action classic, Die Hard as it celebrates its 30th anniversary. Directed by John McTiernan (Predator, The Hunt for Red October) and starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, Die Hard is regarded as not only one of the greatest films of the 1980s but of all time and one that redefined the action genre. It not only spawned four sequels but also a plethora of copycat action films of varying quality. Yet thirty years on, Die Hard remains the ultimate example of how great an action film can be, smartly written, flawlessly executed and containing myriad unforgettable performances from a stellar cast. Sit back, take off your shoes and socks and enjoy our celebration of what is for many, the ultimate Christmas movie. Yippee ki-yay!
