BendyBadger's Brickset BonusBall Bonanza - SumoLego @lowlead Edition! (Drawing 12/31/2021)

    Die Hard is a Christmas movie because it is based around a Christmas party. AND Bruce himself decorated a fella with a Santa hat and the words Ho Ho Ho on his chest. Very Christmassy, Bruce.

    It is a Christmas movie because it has a positive message in it for kids…

    It's a movie that take place at christmas and has Christmas music. Must be a Christmas movie

    I’ve narrowed it down to two options; ‘yes’ or ‘no’

    I've had this 'discussion' with my wife on several occasions, but she's still not convinced by my arguments (many based on the above comments).  However, it was actually on ITV4 last night which pretty much settles it as far as I'm concerned - it's a Christmas movie :-)

    Many thanks to @SumoLego and @lowlead for their amazing generosity!

    I'd say Die Hard is just as much of a Christmas movie as Home Alone.  Both of the individual premises don't have to center around Christmas. A man fighting off terrorists or a kid fighting off two burglars is its own thing. But by placing said film in December, and all the festivities that entails, the stories are enhanced.

    This is where I pop in to say that I've never seen "Die Hard" so I can't weigh in! (Gasp!) Instead, I'll go back to watching "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town"--my favorite Christmas movie!

    "Now I have a machine gun.  Ho - Ho - Ho."  Thus, Christmas movie.
    Really, it's an "Why is everyone else an idiot?" movie.
    Donation sent.  Thanks for the generosity.

    Bruce Willis is Santa Claus.

    Like reindeer games it’s a movie that takes place during Christmas, but not a Christmas movie. 
  • CoviCovi BelgiumMember Posts: 314
    Yes, off course it's a Christmas movie.
    - It takes place at Christmas.
    - Even at a Christmas Party.
    - His wife is named Holly.
    - Full of Christmas music.
    - Full of references towards Xmas. (Ho ho ho, ...)
    - It even has a happy ending.

    It also the perfect addition after Home Alone when the younger kids are already to bed and an old uncle is still raging on over some current pandemic. It gives the older ones something else during the evening. :-)

    I think people started saying it's a Christmas movie because it somehow became the "cool" thing to do.  That makes me sound like "an old."  Wait, did I do that right?

    To paraphrase Argyle: «This is a Christmas movie!»
  • sipusssipuss PolandMember Posts: 144
    It's been a while since I've seen it during Christmas but yes, it is absolutely a Christmas movie.

    I haven’t seen it in 20+ years, but now I can say I learned something! I didn’t know it was based on a novel.

    But, was it a Christmas novel?

    Die Hard is absolutely a Christmas movie.

    As far as Christmas movies go, Elf we watch first and then Die Hard. It has so much Christmas references that it definitely a Christmas movie. Which is kinda strange that it was released in the middle of the summer in the theaters, but yet we all seem to agree that it’s a Christmas movie.

    Any film broadcasted around Christmas is a Christmas-movie. (Never seen the movie btw)
  • norm103norm103 Member Posts: 297
    Die hard took place at a Christmas party   And is played ever year at said time in my house
  • RraiderRraider USMember Posts: 46
    Sorry, it’s not a Christmas movie. It just takes place at Christmas. Other similar movies aren’t considered Christmas movies, like Lethal Weapon, do Die Hard isn’t ether.

    Well done for running this @SumoLego - and to @lowlead for providing the prizes. I was too late to take part here, but I'll be looking for the next one shortly.

    In any case, Die Hard is a Christmas movie because Bruce Willis' noggin looks like a Christmas bauble.
  • lowleadlowlead Downeast, USAMember Posts: 470

    With a July 1988 release date, I would say that Die Hard was originally a Summer blockbuster that was only Christmas 'adjacent', but over time developed into a holiday tradition.  We made it a Christmas movie.

    He is probably just struggling with a reality in which his Buffalo Bills are actually good. It is a lot to take in.

    I missed out on those white Rebels-era lightsabers that they had at Galaxy's Edge.  I'm patiently waiting for a re-release based on the Mandalorian or Ahsoka...

    In the meantime, I did buy a Darksaber.  So... I'm happy.
