It is a Xmas movie if it takes place at Xmas in the theme, maybe not in spirit arguably, however, I watch it year round once in a while, just like The Patriot, Top Gun or Predator for the explosions and rapid gunfire.


The first words in trailer are "It's Xmas eve in LA".

My favorite line is @ 47:45 ====> Ready, Santa!!!!! Again @ 49:45, from the Island of Misfit Toys.

I have no opinion on Die Hard, since I have never seen it and have less than zero interest in Hollywood action movie crap.....

Next time when you get a chance to kill someone, don't hesitate.
Thanks for the advice.

I saw a TV commercial by AT&T yesterday, showing families debating things during Christmas gatherings. One of the questions was whether "Die Hard" was a Christmas movie or not...and the answer was yes. Argument solved..... :)
