    Just wanted to make a comment on this film in regards to the ‘is this a Christmas movie’ debate. There is a difference between movies you watch at Christmas and Christmas movies. I think the main criteria of a Christmas movie is can it be watched by the entire family. And I think you all agree this one cannot. Great movie though. Really puts Bruce Willis on the map as a real action hero. Considering at the time you would be competing with Stallone and Schwarzenegger.

      Ian this is a ridiculously good point about Christmas movie criteria. We really appreciate your comment and yet I don’t appreciate you making me question my stance on Die Hard being a Christmas movie lol. As always thank you so much for listening and joining the conversation!!
