10 Reasons why Die Hard is not a Christmas Movie

imagesWe can argue a lot of things, frankly I like to debate over such topic with my friends and could argue both sides if I had to.  You know topics like…

Who is to blame why Indiana and Kentucky don’t play amore?

Did Rick Pitino know about the hookers?

Which is better football, Saturday or Sunday?

But there is one debate I will not entertain the other (wrong) point of view.  It is not about politics, religion, or college sports.  The issue is a simple one.

Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie!

Just because a movie is set at Christmas does not make it a Christmas movie.  Let me give you 10 reasons Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.

  1. Less Than Zero
  2. Love Actually
  3. Gremlins
  4. Rocky IV
  5. Lethal Weapon
  6. Batman Returns
  7. Edward Scissorhands
  8. Eyes Wide Shut
  9. L. A. Confidential
  10. Trading Places

All these movies are set at Christmas and, like Die Hard, they are not Christmas movies.  If you think they are please stop reading now and go play in traffic.  Look, I get it.  You like Die Hard and hate Christmas.  Your Dad tried to come down the chimney, fell and broke is neck only to be found weeks later.  (Actual plot line in one of the above movies, true story)  Anyway, whatever the reason is that causes the empty space in your Christmas soul don’t try to rain on our holiday by bringing Hans Grubber into the mix.
