Here's One You Might Not Have Thought Of…


Nothin' says 'Christmas' like "Now I have a machine gun, ho-ho-ho".
So goes the witty banter and oh-so-original plotline for that all time
Christmas favourite, that's right folks…you got it…Die Hard?!?

Okay, reindeer and Santa Claus it's not, and I guess it's not really a
movie to snuggle up with the kids and watch, but, hey, think about it.
The Christmas song-laden score (including such classics as 'Let it
Snow') mingled with the sounds of C-4 explosives and screams of
"Yippee kay-aye motherfucker" make this one an instant Christmas
classic - not to mention one of the best action movies ever.

But then, what would you expect from director, John McTiernan
whose credits include Predator and Hunt for Red October amongst
others. Allan Rickman (who played the Sheriff of Nottingham in
Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves) is clever as the ultimate bad guy,
Hans Gruber, carrying off such great lines as, "You want miracles?
I give you the eff-bee-eye." Top this off with Bruce Willis in the very
first of his yeah-I-woke-up-in-a-dumpster-and-I-forgot-to-shave-for-
the-fifth-day-and-did-I-mention-my-wife-left-me-my-kids-don't-
recognize-me-and-to-top-it-off-I-haven't-had-my-morning-coffee-
and-I-can't-find-my-fucking-cigarettes roles.

So, there you have it folks - my vote for your Christmas movie rental.
Go find your chestnuts and open fire, sit back and enjoy the show.
