       This whole concept could be extended to many other movie franchises - this idea only scratches the surface. [+]

       You Shore about that, Mohs-or-Vicker?
Ling, Jun 05 2017
  

       This could redefine the whole concept of "hard man" versus "tough guy" ...

       Or a mean temper....

       A mohs intriguing idea. I hardly know where to start commenting on it.
Voice, Jun 05 2017
  

       But Mohs has nothing to do with dies. You need to look at the different specifications of drawn wire.

       Rockwell Scale of Hardness, invented by two unrelated men for no good reason, except that they shared the same last name.
LimpNotes, Jun 05 2017
  

       Ah yes. And, if I recall, they used to make abrasive tools of various degrees of hardness - the Rockwell Files.   

       No, dammit, it was Rockford. What a missed opportunity.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 05 2017
  

       I keep reading Mohs as Moths. Ha

       We would also accept Moe's or Moa's.

       Presumably the accuracy of ratings would be externally verified ... maybe Inspector Morse could do that ?
8th of 7, Jun 08 2017
  

       Then most of the population wouldn't understand the titles. On the other hand, it might encourage learning of Morse code.

       I can get on board with Die Hard Apatite, Die Hard Topaz, Die Hard Ruby and Die Hard Diamond, especially the last with its alliteration. But Die Hard Talc and Die Hard Orthoclase are just weird.   

       On a slightly related matter, someone I knew once suggested that the drama series 'Die Kinder' belonged in the franchise, and in fact any plural or feminine singular German-language TV series would fit slightly.
nineteenthly, Jun 10 2017
  

       Die Kinder than what?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 10 2017
  

       Are you kidding ?
8th of 7, Jun 10 2017
  

       You'll get his goat
pocmloc, Jun 10 2017
  

       'Prince Rupert Balls' should be on a scale somewhere.
bigsleep, Jun 13 2017
  

       I saw one of those (link) in the Materials Library (link) in London - it looked amazing
hippo, Jun 13 2017
  

       Yes, but: [link]
notexactly, Jun 15 2017
  

       Ah, right - yes [notex], thanks.

Also, [nineteenthly] *I* would go and see "Die Hard: Talc" - I think you need to understand where the characters have come from to properly understand the narrative development to, for example, "Die Hard: Sapphire".
