Last night, Tyler Clawson and I got to see an advanced screening of “A Good Day to Die Hard.”

That sentence is how this post would have started, if not for this lameness, which started right before the screening was scheduled to begin. So we never actually saw the movie, but the hour spent staring at a blank screen gave us plenty of time to talk about what the title of the next installment in the franchise might be. Admittedly, “Die Hard with a Vengeance,” “Live Free or Die Hard” and, my personal favorite, “Die Hard 2: Die Harder,” are tough acts to follow. But we did our best.

“Cross My Heart and Hope to Die Hard”

“Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death Hard”

“Roll of the Die Hard”

“Live and Let Die Hard”

“Because I Could Not Stop for Death, He Kindly Stopped for Me Hard”

“I Just Died Hard in Your Arms Tonight”

“I Don’t Know Why She Swallowed a Fly, Perhaps She’ll Die Hard”

“You Only Live Once Hard”

“To Be or to Die Hard”

“Romeo Must Die Hard”

“John Tucker Must Die Hard”

“If I Should Die Hard Before I Wake”

“Side Effects Include Nauseau, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Fatigue and in Rare Cases, Dying Hard”

“Only the Good Die Hard Young”

“Die Another Day Hard”

“Die Hard Trying”

“But I Don’t Want to Die Hard”

“As Long as I Know How to Love I Know I’ll Die Hard”

“Death Be Not Proud Hard”

“Timmy, Sit Down. We Need to Talk. It’s about Nana. She’s Very Sick, She’s in the Hospital and We’re Afraid She Might Die Hard”

If they take even some of these suggestions to heart, we figure they’ve got enough fodder for at least another dozen movies (a good title equals a good “Die Hard”).

What do you think the next “Die Hard” movie will be called?
