Or are most posters on the imdb idiots with no taste ?
That right there is your answer.
IMDB or Youtube comments/forums = dregs of human society.
As a member of YouTube that has many accounts throughout the years (3 actually) and as a person who often reads the message boards on IMDB, I can safely say that you can find the most interolable and cruel people in the world on these sites. Not the best places to go to find people with tact or here honest and fair balance statements. Places like that are why I enjoy being here, where everyone is pleasant and tolerable to other people's personal beliefs and taste 97% of time. The other 3 precent is a whole another story.
As for Die Hard 2, I have never watched it or any of the other movies in the series. I did see the ending to number 2 and I think it looked like a good action flick. It had one of my favorite death scenes where the guy gets shredded by the engine. Reminds of The Incredibles and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
I think the second one just slipped into the cracks that some good movies disappear into. For instance, I never hear anybody talk about Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Kind of a shame no one talks about that one. I just watched it recently after not seeing it for a couple of years. It was still good as before.
