Die Hard – The Ultimate Christmas Classic

21 Dec

It’s unanimous! The ladies of Singlarity have chosen Die Hard as the best Christmas movie EVER. Well, half of us actually. The other half has been silent due to … er … not being consulted or not caring, but I digress. A majority of the ladies of Singlarity have chosen this wonderful kickass movie as our favorite holiday viewing.

Okay, so there are no reindeer involved, but John McClane does wear a Santa hat and is so desperate to reunite with his family for the holidays that he’ll walk barefoot on glass and murder a German or two. Doesn’t that just warm the cockles of your heart? Still not convinced? Well, let us share with you the Top 5 Reasons Why Die Hard Rocks Our Stockings!

Counting down:

5. Bonnie Bedelia punches that annoying TV journalist in the face. Who here hasn’t wanted to punch Jane Pauley, Connie Chung, Barbara Walters, Greta van Susteren or Katie Couric at some point in their lives? I have only respect for Christiane Amanpour. At least she knows how to pronounce “Iraq.”

4. A sneering, German-accented Alan Rickman with facial hair and glasses. It’s roles like these that made Rickman perfect to play Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movie franchise.

3. Bruce Willis runs around in a ripped, bloodied and dirty wife-beater for a significant part of the film. He may not have big guns like Mark Wahlberg or a full head of hair like Jason Patrick, but I wouldn’t kick John McClane out of bed for eating crackers. Bruce Willis I would. We also know that John McClane has bigger feet than your average terrorist. Ahem.

2. The close ties to this film made Die Hard with a Vengeance that much more badass.

    Hey, thanks, Ayn. I assume you’re the one behind the edited grammar and spacing. 🙂
