Great movie, great scene.

The things that come out of William Shatner's mouth are so ridiculous, it's difficult to know if he is playing us or if he's truly insane. My money's on the latter. No, seriously. I don't see any wink-wink to his game. I think he's deranged. Pleasant and amusing, but deranged.
I hope it's true, because it's funny.
Also funny -- another Die Hard movie? Really?
Even funnier -- I'll watch it. Not in the theater, but if I ever spot it on the tube, I'm there.
Filming a Hollywood blockbuster is a pricey game and producers are always looking for ways and means to minimize costs.
Take Die Hard 4.0. The producers suggested a small scaling down of one of the scenes as it was looking really expensive. Bruce Willis, however, really liked the scene, and argued that it should be left in. The row continued until Bruce finally had enough.
"Who's your second choice to play John McClane?" was all he had to say.
The scene was shot as written and the crew had a nice new catchphrase.
