  1. I saw this as a Boston College freshman, walking down from campus to the Circle Cinema, now demolished. I left feeling utterly exhilarated. The energy of Die Hard is rarely matched. Speed and Terminator 2 are among its exalted peers.

    1. I remember the Circle Cinema. I saw Volcano and Extreme Measures there, in that period where I would go to see pretty much anything. Not a bad place though I heard in later years they had a bit of a rat problem.

      I didn't see this on the big screen until many years later. I can't imagine how incredible this must have been on first run, before every action movie became "Die Hard on a something." It has an elegance and simplicity and a sense of fun that seems sadly rare in the genre now.
