#10. Live Free or Die Hard
The news and noise here were a few sensational action scenes that rely less on CGI wizardry (a.k.a. cheating) and more on old-fashioned mechanical skills. The most amazing: Bruce Willis and a computer nerd (Justin Fox, from the Apple commercials) are standing in a tunnel with cars roaring at them from both directions. Suddenly one car comes tumbling through the air straight at them, and they miss being killed because, just as the car is about to crush them, two other vehicles drive on either side of the guys and the hurtling car lands smack on top of the other two. I mean, holy stunt! The making-of extras provide the full poop on how this miracle was achieved. Fan-boys and -girls are encouraged to study it endlessly. That's what Hollywood movies are about, and what DVDs are for.
