Silver Linings Playback 15 – A Good Day to Die Hard

Subscribe:

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre continue their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining. For the month of August, they are going deep on unnecessary movie sequels.

This week, Joel and Andy watch A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise. The film sees John McClane traveling to Russia to help his spy son Jack. It’s an utterly underwhelming and ridiculous addition to the Die Hard canon, but together they will find its silver lining.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio 425 – Wiring the taps

Director John McTiernan, known for films like Predator, Die Hard and The Hunt for Red October, just completed his first film project in 14 years. In reading why McTiernan has been MIA, Joel Murphy went down a rabbit hole of Hollywood espionage, suspicious fires and illegal wiretapping. He shares McTiernan’s strange tale with Lars Periwinkle this week.

They also discuss their aversion to attending marches, the Nintendo Switch and a grandmother who has mistakenly been praying to the wrong entity.

Hobo Radio 380 – Benefits of a classical education

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle pay tribute to David Bowie and Alan Rickman in their trademark stream-of-consciousness style (which means they also end up spending quite a bit of time talking about Stanley Tucci and Laura Linney).

They touch on Rickman’s biggest movie roles – including the Harry Potter franchise, Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. They also talk about Bowie’s contribution to film, both on-screen and in soundtracks. And they do a WWE-themed MadLibs.

Does everyone talking about Rickman’s role in the Harry Potter series instead of Die Hard make you feel old? Is Waterworld underrated? Did any shenanigans happen during the recording of “Under Pressure”? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Featherlighter” by Lazlo Supreme
