You'd best start believin' in troll threads...
I’m quite aware that most people don’t like Renny Harlin’s Die Hard, yes.
Entertaining, is a word I’d rather use. Because I do actually seek opinions on this matter.

Home Alone 3 is a pure troll option, though.

Man, this really it a hoot of a thread. So obviously wrong for the sake of humor! Thanks for this, needed it today.

Hell yes, finally someone else on the internet with some common sense. Die Hard 2 is the first R rated movie I ever saw, and I'll forever swear up and down that it's the best of the series.

It goes 2, 3, 1, ... 4, and the others don't exist.

Die Hard 2 is garbage.

That is all.

There are exactly two good Die Hard movies, and Die Hard 2 sure as hell isn't one of them (it was the first example of something bad from that franchise long before Live Free or A Good Day ever happened).
Porcelain gun was a neat angle though.
The weapons consultant specifically told them that idea was nonsense during production, IIRC.

The only reason I can think of would be bad taste.


Maybe 4 is better than 2 too, I’d have to rewatch it, I suspect it is.

I mean it has some cool shit, it’s not awful, but it had a lot of shit that makes no sense.

You cheeky bastard. You know that Die Hard 2 is the least popular and you still framed the thread under a narrative that everyone loves it most.

I can't tell if you're trolling or if you genuinely love it and are playfully pretending that people prefer it. You do you.

It's not that bad. I'm a little surprised to see people say "even 4 is better". That feels a bit much.

Yeah. This right here.

Action? Check.
Violence? Check.
Titty? Check.
Snappy one-liners dialog? Check.
Alan Rickman A game? Check.
“Just like FUCKIN SAIGON” ? Check.
Great music, including Christmas in Holis? Check.
