I have no doubt that we will; I don't think we'll be able to update it right away due to how there's always some smaller details missed on initial viewing due to how fast-paced these films are, plus it's going to be hard to get a high-res screenshot until Blu-Ray/DVD release.
Not sure if you've seen those five movies in that franchise but it's essentially what's trying to be a more plausible Rambo thriller with some comparisons to Bourne Identity, Mission: Impossible, Tom Clancy escapism, 24 and The Unit.
Votesmail and Roger Murtaugh both helped helmed that wikia.
First one was theatrical and often considered a way more realistic Rambo type thriller. The rest are similar to all the various other spy and DHS type movies-military shows while still partially channeling the men on a mission type vibe of Rambo.
The other ones are pretty recent and essentially deal with all the closed off areas, espionage flavored action and political intrigue found in any Tom Clancy novel/adaptation, Splinter Cell, Air Force One, 24, Bourne and one of the other series (I think it was the Flynn one) sounded like it predated OHF.
They sound less like 007 and other spy movies though that don't truly fit the DHS bill though. Not a bash just a random observation. I just hope they're great reads also.
That was one of the ones noted for resembling the Die Hard formula. Dino Crisis 3 is another action-horror-scifi adventure game noted for resembling the formula. On the main list, you can check the main links that note how this comes off as a DHS film.
I can get behind that idea; I can't get behind the first three being DHS films since they were far more similar to Alien and Indiana Jones films and weren't noted for resembling the formula in any way.
Hmmm...True on the first three Jurassic Park movies not being Die Hard scenario type films. I don't know about the references of the Jurassic World of being part DHS formula. There a bit iffy if you ask me.
What I can imagine is that if it did have a Die Hard formula, it would be about an anti-dinosaur terrorist group, led by it's sinister mastermind who lost a loved one in the San Diego incident on The Lost World and formed his group because he feels the dinosaurs should have stayed extinct, seized Jurassic World. That would lead to a Die Hard adventure with Pratt and Howard's characters, along the others on it.
The whole concept of comparing the one smart scientist (BD Wong) to Hans Gruber not really being a terrorist but a smart thief seems sound but also like it could easily be any movie that has a double-guessing formula.
The director said he was inspired by many movies including High Noon though including having homages to various shots. The first part of the film felt like a typical SciFi gone amok type film but the second part where the various mercs seize power and start fighting had much of the same elements as Aliens, Executive Decision type films.
Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if they went there with this unpredictable franchise.
I don't know if this needs some extra clean-up or what but I'm helped create the vairous terrorist and heroic/anti-hero groups mentioned in several DHS films/shows.
Right now, I'm trying to help complete the List of Protagonists/Antagonists pages since there's a bunch of well-known/low-budget DH clones but no one's gotten around to updating because either the films are hard to find, on YouTube or of lesser quality.
This actor who plays one of the Secret Service agents just one at the Rack Focus Dallas film competition held this Wednesday, August 19, 2015 here at the Texas Theatre. I knew he looked familiar but he and his crew essentially won most of the awards for a shortfilm about Facebook friend requests. Was an interesting night and I could tell he totally didn't expect to win this much praise.
That film was added because it has the typical DHS that is laden in many of Steven E. de Souza's story lines whether it's Commando or Die Hard since it has a dictator and his men taking over a city with a group of fighters preventing the takeover.
It might not have every single scene in a building and more driven by the fights and other bizarre moments but it does have lots of one-on-one showdowns and is rather enclosed scenario with some of the same one-many army routine.
I added the Bourne films after seeing actor Matt Damon note how they borrowed from the Bond series (what spy film doesn't?) and how director/exec. producer Jon Cassar noted how Bourne and Taken borrowed from his show "24".
Getting into the DHS of things, many critics note how Bourne is just as beefy and capable of infiltrating a building & driving cars in crazy fashion much like John McClane. The films also have little to do with the books and that was made clearly intentionally by writer Tony Gilroy, director Doug Liman and Co. as they thought just showcasing a black ops killer would be dull and just wanted to show a man searching for both his identity as well as a way to get out of sticky situations.
Furthermore, we have everything from a building & safe house escape in the first one to evading capture throughout the second one to infiltrating the main CIA headquarters in the third one to taking out various different Asian countries, prisons and CIA outlets in the fourth film.
Buildings are as much a star in this series as the lead hero is per say.
Odd. Overall, this film should count since it's just the simple formula of seeing a man pulverize his enemies while getting out of a scenario crowded with enemies and not just car chases, spy tech and mystery.
I know we're shying away from some of the spy films despite some noting how the Bond films got totally revamped post-1989 in favor of more modern type films. I know that the Daniel Craig 007 films have been noted as noted as being Bourne-type actioners since that's the direction/editing route the filmmakers claimed to have gone and thus inspired other part-Die Hard, part espionage films like Taken (although that was also inspired by 24 and other 90s styled actioners fit for the likes of Steven Seagal).
Anyway, I've noticed that many are always mentioning how Skyfall bares much resemblence to Die Hard 4.0 and Home Alone. This almost mirrors how the recent Jack Ryan and Dark Knight Rises took a cue from Die Hard 3.
Well, that's what we have to figure out as GoldenEye has a "common thief" throwaway quote that's a nod to Die Hard and has terrorists with bases to infiltrate. GoldenEye and Skyfall are the most noticeable comparable.
Yeah, they are spy films but they're also building-reliant and are grounded on a group of heroes taking out terrorists/evil businessmen and have nods to Die Hard, James Bond and Alfred Hitchcock films.
