John McClane is Jesus.

Can't wait for the awesome PG-13 travesty Live Free Or Die Hard. Can't get any worse than the third, I guess.

I thought the trailer looked like fun.

Shoot the glass.

Not that anyone will notice, but I think it's "Schiess das Fenster".

Nein. Andrew was correct.

Eh..."dem" means dative case, making Fenster the indirect object. I think Fenster (window) should actually be the direct object, meaning "das" is correct.

Actually, I bet there's some kind of verb with a prefix that would make the expression more colloquial. Something like "durchschiessen," i.e., "Schiess das Fenster durch!" But "durch" is probably the wrong prefix. And I'm too lazy to go to the Langenscheidt right now.
