One assumes McClane sperm is whiskey-logged enough to keep her tipsy throughout most of the first trimester.

Eh. It's not as though people didn't know alcohol could be dangerous to fetuses in 1988-- just that Holly corectly knew that a sip of champagne wouldn't be.

I have a crush on Holly's preggo secretary.

As my small tribute to Alan Rickman, I watched DIE HARD last night. My first watch on blu-ray, as I had the initial four film set sitting on my shelf for so long. Watching it for the first time in a long time, it blew my mind to realize that one of Hans' goons is played by none other than Vigo the Carpathian. Seems like every time I catch this movie, I spot someone among the goons I didn't realize I've seen elsewhere until that viewing. I had that with Tony (THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE) and Uli (LETHAL WEAPON, BILL & TED). The reverse happened with LICENCE TO KILL where we get a small reunion between the two Agent Johnsons, and that film was also scored by Michael Kamen.

One depressing thing I noted while watching Die Hard last week, was what a who's-who its become for dead character actors.  Alan Rickman, Paul Gleason, James Shigeta, Alexander Godunov, Mary Ellen Trainer, Wilhelm von Homburg, Matt Landers and Rick Docommun. 

 

All but a few died fairly recently.

 

Also, I don't think its made clear in the movie, but online people seem to think the movie is set on Christmas Eve.  Is that ever explicitly stated, or have people just assumed that? Wikipedia says the book is Christmas Eve, so maybe it is.  What kind of shitty company holds the big company Christmas party on Christmas Eve?  Maybe Hans was right about Nakatomi Corporation's legacy of greed around the globe.

In the 80s nobody gave a fuck you had a family.  You want a job working for Nakatomi? You snort coke with your bosses on Christmas Eve.

The boss literally got his head blown off for not giving away the money. 

 

Greed gets you Alan Rickman style.

Holly says to Ellis that it's Christmas Eve.

"It's Christmas Eve in L.A..." is said in the beginning of the trailer, too.

Deputy Chief Dwayne T. Robinson also says it's Christmas Eve.

My dad also says it's Christmas Eve when I called and asked him about this, and he loves the first Die Hard.
