    Re: Guess the movie from the screenshot.

    Is this possibly from Die Hard? I feel like it could be when they are drilling the outer locks to the huge safe. I mean, I don't remember such a close shot of that drilling action (insert porn joke...

    That is the best quote/story I have heard in a while, and gives me a great respect for Nelson and his antics!

    I can imagine this being from an Indiana Jones movie, but come on Akar, you cannot guess an entire franchise. Pick a specific Indy movie, man!

    My problem is that I actually have no preference over historical fiction, because I never read it.
