Die Hard

Ho, ho, ho. Trystan and I celebrate 30 years of Die Hard by watching the movie for the first time and talking about gender-related film theories, the steam business, and glorious late '80s fashion. We also talk about my deep-rooted bias against action movies and call for sugestions for the greatest action movies ever made. You can tweet us your suggests to @GriddyFilms or shoot us an email at griddyfilms@gmail.com 

The article mentioned in the episode is Yvonne Tasker's "Dumb Movies for Dumb People". (I'm glad I couldn't remember it at the time because man is that a devisive and unhelpful title). Regardless, it makes some interesting points and can be found here: https://www.scribd.com/document/259761018/Yvonne-Tasker-Dumb-Movies-for-Dumb-People-Masculinity-the-Body-and-the-Voice-in-Contemporary-Action-Cinema.

Marvel Mondays will return on Monday, August 6, 2018, with Thor: The Dark World. Joining me and Trystan for that one is special guest co-host Em!
