We don't even debate whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie. This film and its first sequel are always included in Chris' annual holiday movie marathon and the whole gang thought it would make for an appropriately spirited discussion. So come out to the coast. We'll get together. Have a few laughs.
Topics include: the project's unusual origins and how many times it very nearly developed into something else entirely, the way the script skillfully layers in everything we need to know about John & Holly's relationship, how clumsy some of the other exposition is, why Hans Gruber is still the best villain in the franchise, plot holes big enough to drive a certain ambulance through, the use of sidekicks in this film vs the later entries, why the best Die Hard sequel isn't even actually a Die Hard movie, and much much more!
