Trains, Planes, Automobiles: Name a filming location for a Die Hard-style film that HASN'T been used
All of the "terrorist" films...We have Die Hard in a high-rise, Die Hard 2 on a plane, Under Siege on a U.S. Navy battleship, Under Siege 2 on a train, Speed on a city bus...

...name a location that hasn't been done to death for YOUR Die Hard-style good guys versus the bad guys flick.

5. The Wal-Mart setting would lend itself well to a catch phrase...
"Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Welcome to...DEATH!" (terrorist begins firing semi-automatic weapon, blue light special lights pop and explode, etc)

:rofl:

and hold - a week before prom night - a group of young women hostage, threatening to shave their heads if the terrorist's demands are not met...

12. New Orleans.
The bad guys threaten to blow the levees and flood the city, endangering the lives of many. An idiot president ignores the threat and watches in bemused languor as the levees blow, the cities flood, and all civilization falls apart. It is up to our two heroes to fight the beauracracy, fight nature, and most of all fight the idiocy to save the drowned city.
