Die Hard vs. Dawn of the Dead



on 7/9/2009

Ok. So here we have two movies structured entirely around a single building. I really love movies that create such a tangible sense of placement like these do. It's like your movie ticket could just come with a map. As for my favorite, it's a tough decision. I have a soft spot for DIE HARD, and it's probably the best of it's genre. On the other hand, DAWN OF THE DEAD is a much more unique experience. I can't think of any other film that is based on a group of people living in isolation in an eerily familiar setting, and slowly losing their minds. There aren't a lot of films that rely on that kind of plot structure, and that's what makes it the memorable cult classic it is. DAWN OF THE DEAD, I choose you.
