Yippee-Ki-Yay, We’ve Got DIE HARD 30th Anniversary Movie Tickets to Give Away!

DIE HARD, John McClane, Bruce Willis, Yippee-ki-yay

Congratulations to our winners! Robert Y. of Torrance, Calif.; Roger F. of Orlando, Fla.; Jim S. of Shadow Hills, Calif.; Andy G. of Plano, Texas; and Eff D. from Cincinnati, Ohio! Now, check out our next giveaway!

Is Die Hard the most action-packed Christmas movie ever made? Or the best summertime blockbuster set during Christmas? We’ve had 30 years to decide, but really, no debate should be final until you see the first cinematic adventure of John McClane (Bruce Willis) swing into Nakatomi Plaza on the big screen. And, ’80s Movie Guide is here to help!

On Sunday, Nov. 11, and Tuesday, Nov. 14, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies present Die Hard as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics Series on more than 700 screens nationwide. TCM host Ben Mankiewicz will provide brand new commentary before and after the film to add perspective and insight. Then, you can move on to a new debate: is Hans Gruber the most real life frightening movie villain of all time?

Is YOUNG GUNS Responsible for Gen X’s Gun Obsession?

YOUNG GUNS Riley Roberts Emilio Estevez

It’s the 30th Anniversary of Young Guns (currently steaming on Hulu and Netflix) and we’re celebrating. Young Guns is considered the most historically accurate version of Billy the Kid on film, but let’s be honest – the real Billy and the Regulators weren’t quite as attractive. By putting hot, cool actors like Emilio Estevez and Kiefer Sutherland in a testosterone-heavy “band of brothers” environment with a “heavy-metal” ’80s score, did Young Guns make gun ownership sexy to men? We explore how Young Guns affected its teen viewers in 1988 and how it still affects Gen X today on the latest episode of ’80s Movies: A Guide to What’s Wrong with Your Parents. Give a listen to our take on Young Guns below and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.
