Geekery: Die Hard is the Best Christmas Movie Ever


If you disagree, you are wrong. Just accept it.

If you’re about to argue with this fact consider the following:

  1. Horrible sweaters
  2. It’s main plot revolves around a father trying to reunite his family on Christmas
  3. It’s filled with Christmas references – bad one liners, purposefully placed traditional song, santa hats, etc
  4. The hero learns the spirit of Christmas at the end of it
  5. And it features one of the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded during the opening credits…

So, this holiday, break out the eggnog and watch John McClain kick some ass with your loved ones.

    Watch it every Christmas. Up there with Nation Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Scrooged.

  • Jared Swenson

    My wife and I were just having a conversation last night about how Die Hard may just be the best Christmas move ever.

  • benn grimm

    Lol, nearly, it is a great xmas movie, but not quite as good as Gremlins, It’s a Wonderful Life or the various incarnations of A Christmas Carol. Merry xmas regardless! 🙂

    • ZeeLobby

      Black and white Christmas Carol is the best. Label-label-label. And you can’t not watch A Christmas Story.

    Its a shame that the didn’t make any more after the third one.

    • ZeeLobby

      Haha. Are you implying that the 4th and 5th were bad? I thought they were OK, 3rd is still my favorite.

  • Deacon Ix

    Literally just put Die Hard 2 on after getting home from the pub

  • gwensdad

    It is the greatest Christmas movie of all time. Trust me, I’m a movie podcaster and we covered this 2 years ago.

  • dinodoc

    Damn. Die Hard was Rickman’s 1st movie?

    • euansmith

      By Grabthar’s Hammer, it appears to be true. He’d done stage and TV work before.

  • Bad santa.
    Trading places
    Then die hard

  • Mike X (Official)

    I’ve never actually seen it. I saw “Die Hard with a Vengeance” and “Live Free or Die Hard” but never the first or the second movies.

      2 and 5 were slogs for opposite reasons (2 was boring and had too much going on, 5 moved too fast and the plot hooks didn’t grab your attention). “…With a Vengeance,” Die Hard,” and “Live Free…,” in that order, are the picks of the litter.

    I’d put Scrooged first, but Die Hard’s pretty up there.
