Sat 12/24: 'Die Hard' (iTunes)
There are many arguments about whether or not Bruce Willis’ action-packed classic can count as a Christmas movie, but it is time for us to put that debate to rest. The movie takes place on Christmas Eve, there are a dozen miracles of marksmanship that take place, and the message is ultimately about prioritizing family over all else. Just like traditional standbys A Christmas Carol, Home Alone, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and It’s a Wonderful Life. Perhaps wait until the kiddies head up to bed, but once they do, grab your glass of spiked eggnog and shout a little “yippie ki-yay...” It is time to enjoy a little downtime before Santa Claus has to make his appearance.
