Why Die Hard is the ultimate Christmas movie — despite naysayers
Action flick touted by some to be better than holiday classics like the Grinch
Like it or not, Die Hard is here to stay as a Christmas classic. By now, you may have come across the debate over whether the 1988 explosive action film, starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, even counts as a holiday flick. Sure, it’s different from some of the more traditional movies we watch around this time of year. A Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life — now these are the “real” Christmas movies.
Like many other Christmas classics, Die Hard tells the story of an imperfect protagonist with a dad bod, John McClane, who has to overcome obstacles to learn the meaning of Christmas.
