NFT: If 'Die Hard' Is The Greatest Christmas Movie...

be any more wrong?

If Die Hard is the the greatest Christmas movie, then obviously Christmas Story does not exist. If that were the case, perhaps I would have realized that Lethal Weapon took place around Christmas time. Only then could I provide a logical response to your proposition. As Christmas Story does exist, it will be broadcast for all 24-hours starting at 8pm on Christmas Eve. Don't see anyone else watching Die Hard or Lethal Weapon for 24 hours straight.

I always watch Die Hard, Gremlins, and the Futurama xmas episodes. My gf does not share the same taste in Christmas viewings.
You are ALL wrong......

I should have worded it more clearly. For the people (which there are many) who rank Die Hard #1...

And Lethal Weapon opens with 'Jingle Bell Rock' and a cop car crashes right through Danny Glover's living room & Christmas tree.

A Christmas Story, White Christmas, It's a wonderful life...maybe a (non-colorized) Miracle on 42nd street every year. That's my grown-up Christmas movie list.

What puts Die Hard (and Lethal Weapon) off of the list is that you can watch and enjoy them any time of the year. Can you imagine watching a Christmas Story in July? Inconceivable! (Obviously you watch The Princess Bride in July)
Home Alone or  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 12/6/2017 2:11 pm : link
Home Alone 2 anybody?
No way  
Butler : 12/6/2017 2:18 pm : link
Black Christmas (the original)
Silent Night Deadly Night 1 and 2

All the others are just mealy mouthed pretenders.

If a station showed either movie for 24 hours straight, I most certainly would...

Tom Hanks is questioning the creation of a robot building and how much of a dumb idea that is?

While this may be true...


Sister got something eerily similar for my youngest son two years ago


And this year, the boy is getting this


...I bet you're not getting your kid no stinkin' robot building of Nakatomi Plaza.

Why is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Help me here.  
yatqb : 12/6/2017 3:27 pm : link
I thought holiday movies were about love and warm feelings. Die Hard is almost like voting Schindler's List for top Christmas movie.
Alistair Sims in A Christmas Carol is the gold standard

...the screenplay, the casting, the direction are all perfect.

We watch the standards every year, but one that doesn't show up on many lists that I've always loved is Family Man with Nick Cage and Tea Leoni.

Die Hard? I never even considered that a Christmas movie.

Soldiers was a favorite too. Special effects were so bad lol.

Christmas Story. Home Alone Die Hard are all really hard to choose from. Never mind the cartoons
Die Hard is a Christmas movie

Is for people who just want to argue. No chance I consider it a Christmas movie.
A Christmas Story  
Nick in LA : 12/6/2017 11:47 pm : link
is one of the most boring pieces of shit ever put on film. Fuck that movie.
I agree with Gmann

Elf hit all the beats of a great Christmas movie - family togetherness, anti-commercialism, childlike wonder - and did it all with a clever & very funny story.
You know what's a sneaky good Christmas movie?

Scrooged.

Kinda silly all around, carried of course by Bill Murray in all his goofy brilliance...but if you don't get misty eyed during his speech at the end, and then when the little mute kid finally speaks, you just don't have a pulse.

Not sure if serious? Misty eyed over Scrooged. I guess I don't have a pulse - then again I didn't shed tears over dinner with my wife when Eli got benched either.
