Poll: Which Die Hard movie did you like the most?

Re: Which Die Hard movie did you like the most?

Possibly the easiest poll ever. Die Hard 1....but the original sequels are ok, Die Hard 2 is pretty good but it feels a bit off and Die Hard 3 has an interesting concept and I really enjoyed it!

Re: Raised by Wolves (Ridley Scott, HBO)

I have seen about 4 or 5 episodes and the show is all over the place. It is so poorly made which is sad as the premise is interesting and the two main leads are very good.

You don't think they have all been done to death? Plenty of more accurate adaptations of Holmes are around and lots to do with Poirot and Marple.

I never liked his movies, maybe they arent aimed at a British city boy but for me, they were boring boring boring. With all these allegations in his personal life, it makes it worse.
