As a child of the ’80s my favorite Christmas movie was a toss up between Scrooged with Bill Murray and Die Hard – the original only, not the follow ups mind you. If you don’t think Die Hard is a Christmas movie, I hope you choke on an entire buffet of dicks, and by that I mean you are wrong.
One of the most memorable scenes is where our favorite cowboy is slipping through the ductwork of the Nakatomi Plaza bitching about his vacay not going as planned. Some creative bastard made a simple, yet effective Christmas ornament of that scene and it is epic.
I know what I am watching tonight. This is an all-time great Christmas film – so much better than It’s a Wonderful Life.
