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?
Obviously the answer to all of these is –
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.
