Filmmaker Barry Jenkins says when he saw Die Hard and Aliens for the first he was moved.

The director, known for coming-of-age films like Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk, said these films have a great balance of art and entertainment.

''I remember watching 'Die Hard' for the first time and that moved me. I was like, 'Wow, this is really fun, but it's also art'.

The same thing for 'Aliens'. I didn't take cinema seriously in the way that maybe is useful for this interview until I was well into film school, Jenkins told Empire magazine.
