Episode 30: Die Hard 4.0 (aka) Live Free or Die Hard

This episode we leap with Mary Elizabeth Winstead who plays the daughter of Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4.0 (also know as Live Free or Die Hard). Can a 4th Die Hard film be as good as the others? Probably not, but we watched it anyway because that’s where we’ve ended up and that’s how the leaping rules go. Hope you enjoy this episode, it’s a fun movie and an even funner podcast discussion. 

Season 2, Episode 3

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

From: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays a much bigger role in Scott Pilgrim vs The World – the love interest that inspires Scott to “vs the world” but as we move on to Die Hard 4.0 she is now the daughter of action hero John McClane in a smaller, but still significant role. At least we didn’t leap with her to Final Destination 3 which is nowhere near as good as Die Hard 4.0 (although would be a fun watch to discuss on the podcast… maybe one day…)

Where are we leaping to?

Composer: Marco Beltrami

To: Scream

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Marco Beltrami was the obvious choice for Glenn when he noticed he composed the music for classic horror favourite Scream. Scream was actually his first major film as composer and he has gone on to have a successful career composing for many films, including the more recent Die Hards.
