So make it about a different building, crybabies.

Renny Harlin's a hack and I think Jackie's getting a little up there to keep making movies like this anyway.

Biggie too! What did he know, and when did he know it?!?

/Oh, you mean Al-Qaeda tried that once before in '93? So that was a thing already? What is a Blind Sheik, anyway?

After decades of destroying iconic buildings in media, it wasn't an original idea by 2001.

Was it made before the bombing in the WTC's underground garage?

Why is it awkward? JC didn't plan it, or order the attack to happen.

I haven't seen Skyscraper but the building in that film apparently has 86 stories and the one in Die Hard only had 40 so Skyscraper was clearly the better film.

As a 10-12 year old, GI Joe gave me an appreciation for plot, subtle comedic relief, and, well, 'the bromance' (Alpine and Bazooka storylines anyone?).  'The Viper is Coming' was one of my favorites.  Now that I'm much older, I doubt any of it would hold up. I refuse to re-watch so I don't destroy the notions I conceived and appreciated as a child. I have already ruined 'The Goonies' by watching it with my son.  It just isn't the same since I am now older and, hopefully, smarter and more perceptive.

And dear lord Voltron is bad. So bad.

Personally... I can't wait for The Foreignerto hit theaters. Ever since Liam Neeson answered that cell phone, we've been in a heyday of older action stars kicking serious ass, and putting Jackie Chan (who I love watching) up against Pierce Brosnan (who has developed a deliciously dark streak, going all the way back to The Tailor of Panama) looks like it's going to be a good time.
