Here are some films which I believe would be worthy of being added to a list containing the best Die Hard scenario movies. One can be quick to note that some of these films are either inspired by pre-DH films (D.O.A., Dog Day Afternoon, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Assault on Precinct 13), reimaginings and continuations of popular media with clear DH inspirations (James Bond, Fast & Furious sequels, Mission: Impossible, Hawaii Five-0) or films/show based on other films inspired by the Die Hard formula (Taken, 24, Home Alone, The Net, Speed, Broken Arrow, Air Force One, even Half Past Dead and other disaster movies).

Here are one-hundred films I think most people would be glad to include in their home movie collections, let alone take the time to view at some point being the Action-Crime Thriller junkies they might seek to become some day.

Please note that this list is likely bound to change at some point or another. Items marked in bold mean that they're highly recommended and likely wouldn't be the first to be replaced by a better film on this list given their popularity or my personal picks.
