Twelve Days of Questionable Xmas #4 – Die Hard

What a ridiculous movie Die Hard is. Set on Christmas Eve, John McClane just wants to get home to his wife and kids. But Hans Grueber and his group of terrorists have different plans. And… go. Die Hard is at once everything that is awesome about mindless action movies and everything terrible about them. It makes literally zero sense that McClane is alive throughout most of this movie. He is not just a great cop, he is a fucking super cop able to withstand injuries that would kill ten normal men. That being said, things sure do blow up nice in this movie. It’s a lot of fun and one of the most synonymous anti-Christmas movies there is. Pop in a copy, you know you have one, and lose yourself in the absurdity that was 1988 filmmaking.
