Itunes also has a 1080p copy of the unrated copy Live Free Or Die Hard. It is 4.46 GB so way, way below Blu-ray quality but something is better then nothing. Doesn't matter since the unrated cut is a fake cut anyway.

It's not a "fake cut", it's the original cut.

Nope, if you read up on it the PG-13 was the original but they shot alt versions as they wanted to try an unrated version

I thought it started R, then went PG-13 and then had some of the R stuff added back in for unrated? I seem to remember a bit of an outrage when it was first announced that they were switching from R to PG-13.

It started filming with content that would trigger an R rating. It never actually earned one. Some very interesting reading:

Read Kevin Smith's my boring ass life if you want to know what really happened on the set!
They shot the PG-13 and told Fox about that, then quietly filmed the R rated stuff (mostly ADR with the actors opening their mouths saying nothing on set) without telling them.

Wiseman said they shot the R/Unrated stuff and the studio edited the movie in post down to PG-13 to get a broader audience because of what F&F and other action films were doing at the time.

VUDU HD streams are 720P, VUDU HDX streams are 1080P.
Originally their HD streams were still 1080P, just a much lower bitrate. Changing them to 720P was a good decision.

Recently ‘Die Hard’ was given 4k restoration transfer, and that restoration screened on the Fox lot.
Is this true?

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Now is the time that studios have to start seriously investing in 4K for their notable catalog titles.

Actually I liked the last film, I thought "3" was a stick in the heart of the franchise and still don't own a copy - I just have 1, 2 and 4.

Why? Because 1 and 2 were, for all the action involved, about McClane rescuing his wife.

Then all of a sudden in 3, she's left him and it's just an excuse to blow stuff up.

At least in 4, he's rescuing his daughter.

"All of a sudden"? Yeah, because their relationship was really solid in the first one...
