Die Fenster! Die Fenster

Look! We have windows!

They started putting in the windows yesterday. They should have them all in in the next day or so and then they'll start siding.

Extra bonus point: identify the obscure source of this post's title and win a prize (hint: it's from a movie).

Here's the livingroom windows from the inside:

Is it "M", with Peter Lorre?

Cool windows, btw.

Not "M" with Peter Lorie, although that's a good guess. I'm thinking of a much more recent and much less memorable movie.

hmmm less memorable. It can't be from the Usual Suspects then because that move was frikkin' awesome yo. But that's my guess anyways.

Not The Usual Suspects, but that's closer to the time period of the movie. Hint: It was not a serious movie.

Not School of Rock. Too new.

Think action adventure

Die Hard, with Bruce Willis. The first one. Alan Rickman orders his henchmen to shoot out the window (die fenster, auf Deutsch) by Bruce Willis' bare feet.

If this isn't it, quit toying with us and tell us the damn movie.

Ding ding ding!

We have a winner--no more calls please.

Alan Rickman is yelling at his dim henchman to shoot thus big plate glass window (surrounding a computer room, I think). He yells "Die fenster! die Fenster" and the dude just looks at him dumbly. Then he gets that great Alan Rickman "why me?" look and says, as you might speak to a child, "shoot the window".

I don't know why that scene stuck with me. I think it was because the word "fenster" was fresh in my mind because at the time (1988), windowed computer interfaces were just coming into common use and somebody at IBM had developed a system called "Fenster" that did windows on the PC or some fool thing.

Oh, and I just noticed, in checking out the release date of Die Hard, that there will be a Die Hard 4.0 in 2006. Oh goody.

Um, a prize was mentioned . . . ?
