(Also, incomplete articles are harder to track than nonexistent articles, so I'd rather we just focus on making explanations well instead of making an unsatisfactory shell for every comic. Incomplete explanations make us look kinda bad too.)

Action Movies
By my count, only 48 of the 158 minutes in Live Free or Die Hard have action. That's pathetic, guys. Crank is better, but needs a bigger budget and more Summer Glau.

Explanation

Ambox notice.png This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: Does not explain the comic, reads like a second transcript.
If you can address this issue, please edit the page! Thanks.
Megan and Cueball are talking about a movie and Cueball is stating that he does need more action.

The final picture is presenting a film called "River Tam" showing many dead people on the floor, maybe this is it what Cueball is waiting for. But River Tam is just a fictional character, extremely intellectually, even when she was 14 years old. But at that time her horror just did start.

The title text is another hint because River Tam is portrayed by actor Summer Glau.

Transcript

[Cueball and Megan are talking together as they walk away from a cinema]
Cueball: Another summer gone without a mindless big-budget action movie.
Megan: Huh? Die Hard was nothing BUT action!
Cueball: No, it was too talky.
Megan: What? Too talky?
Cueball: I tallied it minute-by-minute. It's at least 60% people walking and talking. ALL those movies are.
Cueball: Just once, I want a real action movie. 30 seconds of exposition followed by a perfect 90-minute action scene. One with a huge budget, a good choreographer, and a great director.
Megan: And they should center it around some character we already know, someone we never get tired of watching.
Cueball: I think we've got something here...
[A movie poster is shown]
Coming this summer
River Tam
Beats up EVERYONE
[The movie shows a line of houses, there are people beat up and lying in doorways, out of windows, and on the sidewalk. River Tam is doing a flying kick into someone's face]
