This weekend, a new Die Hard movie comes out. I'm just going on a hunch here, but I'm guessing that it will continue the series' ever-downward spiral since the nearly flawless original movie came out in 1988.

But that doesn't mean it's not fun to talk about Die Hard. We can only hope that Guyz Nite will combine their forces to give us a new fifth verse to their famous "Die Hard Song," but in the meantime, let's take a trip down memory lane and listen to the most recent version.

Over at NPR's "Monkey See" blog, Chris Klimek has taken a look back at the entirety of the series and summed up each movie. It's a fun read, and has a lot of good trivia.

How would you rank the Die Hard films? My ranking goes:

1) Die Hard
2) Die Hard With A Vengeance
3) Die Hard 2
4) Live Free or Die Hard

Though there's a pretty big gulf between picks #1 and #2, as well as between #3 and #4.


Feel free to rank the Die Hard films, or talk about whatever you like, here or over in the Talk Amongst Yourselves forum. Have good conversation. Ho ho ho.
