Film Friday: A Christmas Classic

Well, it's Christmas time.  And it's also friday, meaning I should make a movie post.  But I don't really want to make a long-ass post, because odds are, you're too busy celebrating in various ways to actually sit down and READ a huge post about movie minutiae. 

So instead, I'll just say this:  You have to make sure you watch the best christmas movie ever made today.  And I mean, that movie that is so about Christmas that it perfectly encapsulates the Christmas spirit.  It is a movie that has become a christmas tradition in my household, and really, should be a tradition in every household.

No, I'm not talking about A Christmas Story.  What?  It's a Wonderful Life?  Are you high?  And no, it's not Christmas Vacation, either.  How is Chevy Chase a good thing?

It ain't A Charlie Brown Christmas, and it isn't Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Or Frosty the Snowman (is that one even about Christmas?)  And it's not one of those new-age crappy christmas shows, either, like Jingle All the Way or some lame movie involving Shrek.   

Nope, it's a movie about Christmas cheer, and goodwill towards all men.  If by "Christmas Cheer" you actually mean "sarcastic dialogue", and by "towards all men" you actually mean "towards all men that aren't actually robbing a high rise tower".

Yyup.  I'm talking about Die Hard.  The one with Bruce Willis.  Stuck in a building, fighting off the bank robbers of Hans Gruber and company.  Die Hard:  A Christmas Classic.

Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!
Or, "Merry Christmas Kay-Yay, Motherfucker!"
