The first Terminator has noir and horror elements that aren't in the second one.

It's also gritty where the second one is slick. I'm surprised that, based on what I know about your other tastes, you like the second one better, but whatever.
Die Hard might be the quintessential "Action As a Genre" movie, so if that's one of your least favorite genres I wouldn't expect you to like it. But as for it being dated, it's got a bunch of harrowing (especially if you're afraid of heights) stunts that would probably be ruined by a bunch of obvious cgi or shaky-cam or something if they made it now.
