EPISODE 101 — Die Hard with a Vengeance

Episode Summary

Welcome to CINEOPOLIS, a podcast about movies and the places that made them. Over the 10 episodes that comprise this inaugural season, hosts Christian Niedan and Dante A. Ciampaglia will take you on a journey into the rooms, cities, and architecture where movies are set through deep dives into films and filmmakers. CINEOPOLIS kicks off in the place Christian and Dante call home, New York City, with a joyride through Bruce Willis' third adventure as John McClane, Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995) — a film that captures a Big Apple in transition, transforming from the grimy mean streets of the 1970s to the 21st century Disneyfied playground for the super-rich. There's no better guide through '90s NYC than one of the cinema's all-time great smart asses, expertly partnered this time out with badmuthafucka Samuel L. Jackson. Yippee-ki-yay, movie lovers.
