You are all cucks, both Die hard and lethal weapon were movies that cast white people as terrorists, in a time when the real terrorists were all from the middle east.

Hollywood painted us as the evil ones already then.

I posit that it could have just as easily been a scene where anything was being bought or sold, meaning that the Christmas aspect was secondary while in Die Hard, it was integral to the plot.

This was the first movie I worked solo after being certified as an IATSE Projectionist.

The Union local Business Agent and my training mentor snuck into the storeroom behind the projection booth and hid, and when I was working on another screen, fucked with the projector (reel-to-reel house, not platter).

Next thing I know, the feed reel falls out of the top magazine onto the floor, and the film breaks.

I slam the reel back into the magazine, thread up again, and get the movie back on the screen in under 20 seconds.

Turns out that this was my real “final exam” for full certification as a Projectionist.

So Die Hard has a special meaning for me, besides being a great Christmas movie.

Would love to hear some more stories of your time as a projectionist. I miss the cellulose…digital doesn’t even come close.

KilroyJCNJ 14 points ago +14 / -0

The biggest problem with viewing film - especially older movies- is the light source color temperature. Carbon arc is 3200-3500 K, Xenon is 4000-5000 k (depending on how much amperage is pushed) and the old movies with modern (post1972) lamp houses just look washed out.

14
KilroyJCNJ 14 points ago +14 / -0

Started in a twin, r2r. Diode automation. Most of the time ran full manual because the diodes were unreliable.

Worked platters in 6/8/10/11/14 screen houses.

Worked volunteer in a restored “movie palace” a couple times, carbon arc with TungAr bulb rectifiers, they were afraid to fire up the AC/DC gensets! I got to run *Creature From The Black Lagoon” with two cartoons for two consecutive weeks as a fundraiser for the restoration.

I was lucky enough to get in at the tail-end of physical film, got out with the advent of DLP.

It was fun. I miss it.

TexasPiper 10 points ago +10 / -0

Thanks for sharing. I know Hollywood gets a lot of hate (and rightfully so) but I still consider film an art form. And there is just something different about seeing a preserved copy of the classics on the big screen. If the opportunity is ever there, I hope you consider donating your time and expertise again to keep those old machines turning.

KilroyJCNJ 2 points ago +2 / -0

No matter what went wrong in the booth, the answer to “What Happened?” Is always “The Film Broke.”

Unless parts fell out of the machine and you couldn’t run the rest of the show. . .

And, depending on the theater owners, that happened more than you would think. Regular maintenance is very important with commercial projectors!

UnitedWeStandUp 3 points ago +3 / -0

As a kid (11 or 12) my first job was to repair speakers at a Drive-in Theater. A few times I would be there until dusk, then stayed on to catch a movie. The projectionist would let me change out the carbon rods. I took some of the stubs home and using a transformer from an old oil burner, made my own spotlight.,,,a beam of white in the black night over the farms and pastures.

2
KilroyJCNJ 2 points ago +2 / -0

One of the old practical jokes projectionists used to Play was, just before change of shift, trim in a pencil instead of a carbon and when the changeover happened, you would get maybe 2 minutes of light and then have to hot-swap in a real rod to get back on the screen!

aren't those IMAX projector things still film? I remember seeing a video of someone stringing one up and then going over it about three times to make sure the film was definitely going around the right bits in the right direction (and the reel of film was like 5 foot across it seemed)

edit: here we go i found it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uFyp1WS1Fw

KilroyJCNJ 1 point ago +1 / -0

I have been out of the box for almost 20 years, I don’t know if IMAX is still film.

IMAX is a crazy system - basically 70 mm film running horizontally for a gigantic frame size, but with the high FPS travel speed, a regular perf-type intermittent would tear apart due to the inertia of the celluloid, so the film is stopped by vacuum between glass plates.

I have interlocked 70mm (that will give you ulcers!) but never ran IMAX.

2
kxitx 2 points ago +2 / -0

yeah you can hear a schloorp noise as he sets up uh... checks video the rolling loop!

apparently many imax setups are digital but the really really big ones are still film (because really whats got a higher resolution an 8K projector or film?)

KilroyJCNJ 1 point ago +1 / -0

One of the reasons I loved the Century heads over the Simplex heads was the Century has a tensioner in the sound head while the Simplex needs that big ol’ flapping loop. The Century only needed 6-8 perfs of loop coming out of the gate.

Plus the Century was not a wet-bath machine - Simplexes leaked oil worse than pre-90’s Harleys!!!!

Brought back my own memories working with the old Cinemechannica (sp?) projectors. They were reel too. Those arc lights made the tiny booth into a sauna after a few hours…no AC back then.

1
KilroyJCNJ 1 point ago +1 / -0

Cinemeccanica was a great machine! only for acetate film - no way you could safely run celluloid without the enclosures and fire damper rollers. I worked in an 8-plex that had those - two 35/70 in the two big auditoriums, 35s in the rest. Xetron platters, which IMO were the simplest platters to use, not like Strong or some of the others.

I learned on the old Century J- series machines that had Ashcroft lamp houses that were converted to Xenon back in the 70s. That was in a General Cinemas twin.

Cinecitta machines were horrid. They were basically Century knock-offs from India, and you had to grease them gaily to take the slop out of the shafts or else they’d rattle and chatter and you’d go nuts with the noise.

Just watched it again a few weeks ago for the first time in decades. It really is a kick ass action movie. The 80s were the golden era of ballsy, violent action flicks. Die Hard, Robocop, Terminator, Predator, Aliens, First Blood: they just don't make shit like that anymore.

16
bigmikesballsack 16 points ago +16 / -0

Because Hollywood has intentionally moved away from masculine characters. I grew up watching the A-Team and the Terminator, etc. Now it’s trannies in everything. Hollywood is trying to emasculate society. But they will lose, because 95% of Americans don’t want to be force-fed degeneracy and would prefer to watch a great, non-agenda driven movie from the 80s or 90s.

That was his first film and he had never even held a gun before. Did that fall at the end of the movie himself.

Granted, it wasn’t off the top of Nakatomi Plaza, but he fell about 25 feet in a studio, and wasn’t warned when the crew would drop him to get that authentic reaction as Hans Gruber realizes that he’s doomed.

All those films you listed also carried powerful messages about the corruption of power and money. First Blood was first and foremost a film about evil men with authority.

This was made in an era when Americans though the Japanese would take over everything and become the dominant force... despite being an island nation.

It was the specter of two looming forces, perhaps three. The old specter of the past with the European gunmen, and the new specter of the future with the Japanese. Even if the Japanese in the movie weren't the bad guys, they were seen as the height of riches vs a poor American shlub cleaning out their building for them. The possible third specter is the destruction of the American family. Semi divorce father with kids, still trying to make it happen for his beloved wife. It will be a Christmas miracle if John can overcome all 3.

10
2Fangz 10 points ago +11 / -1

Lemme tell you about a tiny island nation that managed more than that. At its height, it was the largest Empire in history. By 1913 the British Empire covered 35.5 million sq km or 13.7 million sq mi (24 percent of the planets’ total land area). In 1920, the Empire’s population was over 413 million people (23% of the world population).

The British Empire, at its territorial peak, covered nearly the same surface area as the Moon.

It wasn't just Americans..Japan was on a tear and appeared to be poised for super power status until their recession in the 1980s which they never really recovered from, and from which we got quantitative easing.

4
PensivePatriot 4 points ago +4 / -0

Can you elaborate on what quantitative easing is, and how it relates to Japan’s lost decades?

2
JoePlumber 2 points ago +2 / -0

When Japan's economy hit recession they did very little at first thinking it was a very short lived downturn. Eventually it became apparent that there were deeper flaws in Japan's economic system than anyone realized, and the Japanese production couldn't continue as it had from 1950-1980.

Quantitative Easing is a central banking strategy where the central bank (in the US it is the Federal Reserve) purchases financial assets (shares of companies, sometimes entire companies) in an attempt to reduce interest rates, increase the supply of money and drive more lending to consumers and businesses. The goal is to stimulate economic activity during a financial crisis and keep credit flowing.

The result is a strong central bank that can control the entire economy with one stroke of a pen, and even own huge portions of the economy.

QE was one of the many solutions Japan tried during the 1990s to lift their economy out of stagnancy, which is what gave Bernake and Yellen the idea to use it here during the Great Recession.

CisSiberianOrchestra [S] 8 points ago +10 / -2

Nowhere did you see that more than in the cyberpunk genre. Cyberpunk stories from the 80s predicted the 21st century as a world ruled by Japanese megacorporations. Then in 1990 Japan's economy crashed and never recovered, and the "Japan rules the world" trope disappeared overnight.

bigmikesballsack 4 points ago +4 / -0

Let’s hope the same happens to “Chyna.”

9
cantrememberpassword 9 points ago +9 / -0

Supposedly Chynuh is on the brink of economic collapse, something about they keep building, and adding, but no one is buying. That's why you see mega cities built for millions, with only 100k living there. Another reason no one buys is because in the Chinese culture, they make you an empty cube, you do the wiring and plumbing yourself, because you are a man. So the giant sky scrapers have no pipes, no windows, no wiring, and so on. They keep building, because there are very strict investment criteria what the government allows.

Their high speed trains everyone brags about go unused, because no one asked for it, and the cost is too high. Now they're falling apart due to the cost of maintenance.

3
NeoDragoon 3 points ago +3 / -0

The high speed trains go unused and apparently you can't run freight on the special "high speed" lines, so they don't even get an economic benefit there.

2
cantrememberpassword 2 points ago +2 / -0

That's what I had to look up too why they aren't used for freight. Something about the weight of freight vs electricity would end up being slower, sometimes too slow to make it up inclines, unless you go light with the freight, then it turns into a giant money hog for the little freight you're getting out of it.

I think part of the issue is China has a brilliant way of sabotaging themselves. Like giant solar farms next to coal factories. Cheap parts that break more frequently.

These high speed trains are also supposedly obsolete after a mere decade. Which is the problem of early adoption. Just wait a bit and something better will come along in a few years once all the early adopters have tested all the flaws and issues for you at a high price.

I read it in 2021 that China does have a high speed freight in the works. We will see how well that goes for them. Could turn out to be too costly to even run.

2
cantrememberpassword 2 points ago +2 / -0

I assume because China is in charge, and they don't like Japan. Probably want to conquer it under the guise of "dayum Japan, you look fine, we should reuinify."

Unless the secret is that America still rules everything and creates spectors of hate that "oh no China is going to take us over," or if you're a Democrat, "oh no the Russians will wipe us out!" When both currencies are still like 1:50 to the USD and we use both as slave labor because of it.

Who moved into the offices of the Nakatomi Plaza?

When Fred Ryan, Ronald Reagan‘s chief of staff from 1989 to 1995, first toured the soon-to-be-former-president’s future office suite on the 34th floor of Fox Plaza, the floors were littered with bullet shells and broken glass.

To this day, if I’m visiting my mom and poppa and die hard is on tv, my poppa and I will watch it. My mom always says, “why are you watching it on tv, we have it on vhs, dvd and streaming, why are you two watching the censored version?”

I think this counts instead as "post-masculine." Bruce Willis is plenty masculine, but he's not Schwarzenegger.

And that's the point, I think. We got movie after movie about superhuman Arnie, Die Hard was about a more "realistic" man. What he lacked in muscle he made up for in wit and determination. He was relatable. He was what normal men saw when they looked within themselves.

4
airborne3502 4 points ago +4 / -0

Good point.

At the time, they approached some Hollywood heavyweights who passed on the movie.

Pretty much EVERYONE passed on it.

Schwarzenegger or Stallone, in that role, would have to do some pretty good acting to convince you they weren't superheroes.

Your comment about 'normal men' got me thinking:

So many 'normal' people in this movie stepped up when they had to.

From the main character, to Al Powell, to the limo driver, and even McClane's wife in a critical moment.

This one won't be topped, for quite some time, if ever.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. has talked about wanting to start a conservative movie studio. He supported Trump and was blacklisted because of it.

Antonio Sabato Jr. is living his best post-Blacklist life. Earlier this year the veteran TV and film star shared how Hollywood unofficially “canceled” him after he openly supported President Donald Trump.

The 48-year-old actor revealed on Thursday on Twitter that he's developing a "conservative movie studio for all patriots" and plans on taking on projects that other Hollywood studios "would never" do.
"We are putting together a plan to create a conservative movie studio for all patriots to do projects that Hollywood would never do. No more blacklisting and no more injustice from the socialist's elites," he wrote.

This was from 2 years ago.

Fuck man, every time I see this movie now I’m going to visualize what they would do today, which is put Bruce Willis into high heels and have him hit Hans with his purse. And of course his period absorbing underwear Will fall out and make some Europeans die from discomfort.

Probably did if because supporting Trump will kill a Hollywood career. Sad. In the 80s there was nothing wrong with being a Republican, but I don’t think there’s been a truly elected President since JFK. Trump slipped through the net.

I like JFK as much as the next guy, but there's reason to believe he cheated in his election courtesy of the Chicago mafia. Look it up.

I had never seen it until last Christmas, when my son insisted it was a Christmas movie. Now it's on our roster of Christmas movies, right up there with It's a Wonderful Life and White Christmas. Y'all say a prayer for Bruce, and raise a glass to Alan. I'll miss them both.
