I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Yay '88, the year of my birth. Die Hard is the awesome!

Mine too, but I didn't realize just how kickass a year to be born it was. This has got to be the hardest choice yet. I've got it down between Die Hard, My Neighbor Totoro, and Grave of the Fireflies...

Die Hard is great, but clearly more people need to see The Vanishing.
