Yippee Kay Yay, Mr Falcon


Just watched bits of the TV Edit on Youtube, lol, hilarious

The best bit is when McClane realises the machine guns have blanks: "Aw Gee, Aw Shoot"

and when he ejects from the cockpit of the General's plane: "Ohhh Shoooooooooooooooot!"

I don't think I've ever seen a TV edit of Die Hard 2. I've seen the first and third edited for TV, but every time I saw the second on TV it was on HBO. I watched the Youtube video you spoke of, and it was pretty great. My favorite part was the Colenol's "2 words", Joke and You. What? Or McClane's speech in the control tower, it sounded more like Art Evans than Bruce Willis. And if McClane only knew just how big of a rascal Grant was...

Gotta love the TV edits. They can make a serious scene unintentionally funny.

Scarface TV version is more funnier.

'Yippee-ki-yay, Mister Falcon!': when movie censorship goes wrong

This is why I don't watch movies on TV. Stupid editing of cusswords into things that sound childish and also the fact it takes 4 hours to watch a 2 hour movie cause of commercials.

Haahah, yah I love how it's also a totally different voice that's dubbed. There was another version that goes "Yippee Kay Yay, my friend"

So awful..

This Die Hard came out when NYPD Blue was the rage. It was the fav of the fifth grade mentality that gets over-excited at F-bombs and "head shots." If they took all the cussing out, it would have been a 45 minute movie.

Movie critics that judge how good a movie is by how much cussing is in it are infantile. Any halfway smart person was always a half-step ahead of the bad guys -- they gave us plenty of time to figure it out by all the sentences having to be twice as long to fit all the cursing in.

While the "Yippie Kay Ya, Mr. Falcon!" was highly unimaginative, so was the whole plot. And the overwrought dialogue made Willis's overwrought acting just that much worse. This was the second worst Die Hard movie. That last one set in Russia was the abject worst.

And are we over our silly insistence that movies shot with a teal filter are "edgy"? Years from now, people are going to die off laughing about that. I can't remember if this is a "teal" film, but the first one was, slightly. The last one really was. Pathetic!
