Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are always a welcome exercise in nitpicking, a chance to point out the annoying flaws in movies that are otherwise acclaimed or iconic or universally adored. But the latest installment, on Die Hard, makes no pretense at critique.

Because what is there to complain about, really? The all-time snarky hero? The all-time snarky villain? The one-liners galore? The weird, recurring foot motif? The action scenes that pulse and thrill without feeling choreographed to a T? Die Hard hits the spot every time. Go watch it.
