    Live Free or Die Hard

    Go see it NOW!

    I'm kinda dissappointed tho with the rating of pg 13, how can you make a John McClaine movie with only 1 "motherfucker" in the movie?

    Ahh, the little red x's again!!

    But, I saw the name of the picture, and realize how much of a dumbass I am. I still have a vehicle with NH plates, sporting the "Live Free or Die" quote from General Stark (He actually said, live free or die, for dying is not the worst of evils, but I guess that was too long for a license plate). I shoulda known

    It was good! I saw it tonight. Good humor, good story.

    This one and the last one with Sammy J are tied for my favorites of the series.

    I just saw it while working my part time. Great flick- and you forget pretty fast that it's only PG-13. Not the best Die Hard, but definately not the worst. (We don't speak of Die Hard 2 around here.)

    HOnestly, my biggest gripe was something VERY minor, but one that every cop can pick up on.

    McClain drives a Ford CVPI throughout much of the movie...at least for the action sequences anyway. Whatever engine they dubbed the CVPI with, though, sounded like a dragstrip monster. I know the sound of a Vic very well, and I only WISH my patrol car sounded like his cars in the movie.

    Holy foley!

    Good gripe, passing it along to a friend taking an audio production class. He was nice enough to pass along some class recordings and I love tales of how sound engineers acquire and zealously guard their own sounds.

    A few sounds have been used over and over though. The most famous is perhaps the Wilhelm Scream, which is something of a easter egg for sound engineers.

    Check it out, pretty funny.

    Guys, it's a Die Hard movie. If you want realism, go watch a documentary on nature.

    That's funny as hell

    The other sound effects that I hate are the gun sounds. One that repeats a lot sounds like a blast with a rioichet in it (even when they shoot it in the air), and the other one sounds like a steam explosion - Way too long and not sharp enough compared to the sharp deafining report of a real gun.

    This one sounded pretty realistic, although I didn't pay attention to the sound much. The other movie that sounded realistic all the way through was "Open Range", which was a western that came out just a few years ago.
