I’ve had enough of the “Die Hard is a Christmas movie” bullshit.

Apparently, so are Gremlins, Trading Places, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon.

Look, it’s time to define this –

“A Christmas Movie uses Christmas as its theme, not it’s setting.”

Is Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 a camping movie because they spend most of the running time within tents?

Is Lost In Translation a Japanese movie because it’s set in Japan?

Is Adam Sandler funny even though his movies are labeled comedies?

“Pssst… No, Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. Take this wisdom with you in life.”

Obviously the answer to all of these is –

“F*** No.”

The definition of a Christmas movie is It’s A Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street or Christmas Vacation!.

(A Christmas Story also doubles as a guide to proper firearms safety.)

This isn’t difficult people.

I have spoken.
