Christmas Countdown: Die Hard 2 (1990)

Die Hard 2 is a pale imitation of its antecedent. Whereas modern sequels are often travesties, like Indiana Jones 4, back in 1990 they were just poor copies of the original.

Die Hard is one of the best action movies ever produced. Die Hard 2 is a tame progenitor to Snakes on a Plane.

The film does incite the Christmas mood. McClane survives by the help of strangers and miracles, and is reunited with his family after his ordeal. As a Christmas film, Die Hard 2 is better than most, but it's still not much of a movie.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
