Just in time for the fifth film in the “Die Hard” franchise — truly, this is a series that lives up to its title — there’s a new 25th Anniversary Collection Blu-ray out; the first four “Die Hard” films plus a fifth all-new bonus disc. And, thanks to the folks at Fox, we have a free copy to give away.
Want to know how to get it? Simple: all you need to do is answer this question: As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with 7 wives, every wife had 7 sacks, every sack had 7 cats, every cat had 7 kittens, kittens, cats sacks and wives. How many were going to St. Ives?
Ah, I’m just kidding. You do not need to follow Jeremy Irons on a mad goose chase around New York City to win. To enter, simply email a link to your favorite piece of film criticism about the “Die Hard” franchise to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Die Hard Blu-ray Contest.”
There’s no correct answer here; I will not respond to your email with “Sorry Hans, wrong guess! Would you like to go for Double Jeopardy where the scores can really change?” (Although, as I think you can tell, I reeeeeeally want to). We’ll simply collect all the entries and select one random winner. And maybe we’ll turn your picks into a fun post on Criticwire celebrating the best film writing (or video essays or podcasts) on the web about “Die Hard.”
So find some good criticism about “Die Hard” (or make some of your own) and email us — but do it before Friday, February 8th at 12:00 PM eastern. The clock is ticking! Thanks, good luck, yippee ki yay, etc.
