Watch that first step. It’s a doozy.
I watch a lot of movies, but I guess all the movies are terrible, because I only saw 8 movies from this list of the Top 100 Movies of 2011 by Rotten Tomatoes. The highest rated 2011 movie I saw was number 34, and I only saw 2 in the top 50. How did you do?
If the question is, “Would I watch ‘Wastelander Panda’?” The answer is yes. If the question is, “Would I have to wait for my wife to be away to be able to watch it?” The answer is also yes.
“The tale of the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.”

Firstshowing.net recently interviewed David Fincher where he talked about why he made a couple of his movies. The ones he didn’t talk about, they filled in from past interviews resulting in a group of quotes about why Fincher made each of his movies. Pretty neat.
The Game 1997: ‘The Game was a movie that I liked the idea of this gigantic Twilight Zone episode that became The Stunt Man. That you could sit down and look at the bill and go, ‘Oh, really? So you had divers when I was in the cab. That’s nice to hear now. But at the time I really thought I was drowning.’ So you know, there’s different reasons for [choosing] everything.
In trying to clear out my tabs to reach the nirvana of Tab Bar Zero, I came to Daniel Norris’s reimagined Die Hard poster. I’d meant to post it months ago. He’s got a bunch of really good movie posters, but I love Die Hard.
This reminded me of Olly Moss’s Die Hard poster from a couple years ago. And then I got curious about whether there were any other Die Hard posters out there, and, oh man, let me tell you there are a couple, and these are all of them that I could find. Which one is your favorite? Did I miss any?

And then, these aren’t movie posters but still valid in this post, I think.

Update! Here’s a 20th Die Hard poster by Jim Rugg
Here’s a Die Hard cross stitch.
Lastly, here’s a holiday card from Nakitomi.
This is now the movie I most want to see. Opens in Boston at Kendall Theater on 11/11.
This revealing and touching film asks what happens when a generationâ€™s ultimate anti-authoritarians â€” punk rockers â€” become societyâ€™s ultimate authorities â€” dads. With a large chorus of punk rockâ€™s leading men â€“ Blink-182â€²s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppersâ€™ Flea, Rise Againstâ€™s Tim McIlrath â€“ THE OTHER F WORD follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his bandâ€™s anthem â€œFâ€“k Authority,â€ to embracing his ultimately authoritarian role in mid-life: fatherhood.
Here’s the trailer:
A couple weeks ago, I posted about a Reddit post titled “Could I destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if I traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion or MEU?” about the very same subject. It’s a compelling read. And now it’s being turned into a movie. Awesome.
