Die Hard (1988Moving picture, 132 minutes)

Many problems, and unfortunately the template of a lot of later crap, but definitely cozy.

Live Free or Die Hard (2007Moving picture, 128 minutes)

Not subject to childhood nostalgia and, I hope more importantly, very generic. McClane has been promoted to a superman reprising the actor’s role in The Last Boy Scout (1991). There is no plot, just dated paranoia.
