It’s not a Christmas Movie unless the plot Revolves around the Celebration of Jesus’ Birth.

Um, actually my favourite Christmas movie is The Godfather. It’s about family and large segments of the film take place at Christmas.

In "Die Hard", Christmas was used as what's called a plot device. Christmas, no matter one's religious bent, had NOTHING to do with the nuts and bolts of the story. They needed to pre-explain, one, why the building was empty; two, why traffic was so light in Los Angeles at an otherwise heavy traffic time-of-day in that city. Christmas was a convenient incidental. .

Explanation : 🎄🏢🔫💣💰 1 Plot line: They story revolves around a N.Y. police officer who is travilng across the Country to visit his family on Christmas Eve. Further more his actions are also an attempt to reconnect with his family as he is currently struggling through a failing marriage. Through the Actions of this Terrorist group however (whom of which turn out to be just a band of exceptional thieves), he is forced to take on the villains who have taken over Chistmas. Gruber's plans also revolve around Christmas as he specifically chose Christmas Eve to infiltrate the building because he knew there would be a skeleton crew as well as the very executives of the Company he was planning to heist the money from would have it's top Executives present at the Company Christmas Party. Christmas is intrgal here because any other Holiday would likely not result in a Office party that would also leave the building with a skeleton crew. This would include New Years as most office settings may have a celebration but would like be business as usual on New Years, especially if it fell on a weekday. MANY office business's might not even shut a building down for Christmas. John McLean was ONLY in the building because he planned to meet his wife at the Party and wasn't even sure if he would be visiting his children that night. He also had not seen or visited his family in months, so to assume he would've been in that building at ANY other time or holiday is HIGHLY unlikely. This means that unless it was Christmas Eve it is improbable that EITHER M cClean or Gruber would've been in that building so... No Hans or John means no Die Hard. Without Christmas this movie does not happen. If that alone isn't enough for a start the Writer himself Claimed that he originally framed the story around the Jewish Holiday of Purim. However the studio turned him down but then accepted the script when he switched the holiday for Christmas. So don't listen to Bruce Willis or the dang Director, I'm tired of hearing it. 2 The backdrop: The movie is full of decorations, people scurrying in the background, lights, signs, it's L.A. and everyone is dressed for Cold weather. 3 The soundtrack: Along with the backdrop, Christmas music plays throughout the movie (usually intensifying or played prominently during KEY plot pionts) including several main characters whistling or humming Christmas tunes INCLUDING THE VILLAIN. Right down to the closing scene when White paper falls from the building covering the streets while a rendition of "Let it Snow" plays for the closing sequence. This movie WANTS the audience to know it's Christmas. 4 The Spirit:. People say there must be "aspects of a Christmas Movie to be considered one so..... John McLean visits his Wife Holly Geniro on Christmas Eve to try and reconnect with his family. That's right HOLLY his wife's name is HOLLY. Along his journey as he fights a battle with the "Grinch that tried to steal billions on Christmas and his band of evil elves" he has a revelation that he may have been the reason for their struggling marriage and seeks redemption wishing he only gets the chance to tell her "he is sorry". He is accompanied on his journey by the Voice of a friendly companion who you could say acts as his Gaurdian Angel or Voice of encouragement who helps him to keep his "FAITH" through his trials. As a joint connection, he himself helps to redeem the Police officer as he is able to overcome his Fear of the Greatest Mistake of his life by finding the courage to overcome his fear and save a newfound friend. Inevitably he reconciles with his Wife, renews a second chance to restore his marriage, even provides us with a visual representation of valuing unconditional love over the value of material objects (for example a $10,000.00 Rolex watch). Even the Limo Driver aids in the story and saves the day with his own little arch. In my opinion this movie has PLENTY of plot points that would qualify with the aspects of a "Christmas Genre Movie". 5 Closing argument: Christmas is specifically mentioned almost 20 times throughout the movie, Christmas "Miracles" referenced several times from several main characters and also at KEY plot points. How about the "pregnant woman" who we are introduced to and follow is a side note whithin in the plot who is described as "about to give birth" on Christmas Eve by the way, and she even has a conversation about drinking wine! How about the subtle nod to "Santa's Christmas List" on John's right arm. The statement from John McLean that he was always partial to "Roy Rodgers" the "Signing Cowboy" who happens to have his own Christmas Album. The scene where John Lights the "fire in the fireplace" (the C4 sent down the elevator shaft as Santa delivering presents down the chimney). Finally the very last frame is John and HOLLY riding off on Christmas Morning to be reunited with his Children on Christmas Day. So that's is the end... Die Hard is the greatest Christmas "ACTION MOVIE" ever made. Hope you enjoyed and now have some ammo for the "non believers" lol. Thank you for your time.

Quick couple of Facts. The plot DOES revolve around the holiday, The planned heist, hostages, as well as McCleans very presence in that building. If it were not Christmas Eve NO DIE HARD MOVIE. 2: Soundtrack and backdrop. Elements of Christmas throughout including several main characters whistling and humming Christmas music at KEY points throughout the movie as well as decorations trees signs all about the movie wants the audience to know it's Christmas. Several references of "Miracles" made specifically to the "Christmas Season" Reconciliation John McClain realises the mistakes he made adding to their falling marriage reconciles with his wife gives us a visual representation of love over items (the $10,000. Rolex) and even helps "Pal" overcome his fear of his mistake he previously could not forgive himself for. I could go on for a while but just picture the closing scene with white papers falling from the building like snow while Let it Snow litteraly plays at the end scene.

How about "College Humorless". All you did was compare individual references with Christmas ?? You didn't talk about the movie AT ALL. How about pointing out the MANY aspects of the film that cause the Christmas movie debate in the first place??? No... That's too much like work because they would actually have to WATCH a movie that was made before the rules of ploiticaly correct culture was enforced upon them. P.S. that airplane joke.... Disgusting.

Wasn't John McLaine trying to come see his wife and daughter for Christmas and try to save the marriage? and didn't he save his wifes life? Sounds like family coming together His daughter is on the news saying 'please come home mommy' - do you think the community didn't want the people in the tower to be safe? It took place at a Christmas party on Christmas Eve And just to take something from Wikipedia directly - "Adding to the debate over Die Hard's status as a Christmas film, it has appeared on several lists of the top holiday films, including at: number one by Empire, and San Francisco Gate; number four by Entertainment Weekly and The Hollywood Reporter; number five by Digital Spy; and number eight by The Guardian." Die Hard IS a Christmas movie

He visits his wife on Christmas Eve Tries to bring his family together, has a realization that many of their martial problems can be attributed to his own behavior and superiority complex visually symbolizes the value of unconditional love over material items (say a $10,000.00 Rolex watch) and inevitably reconciles with his wife off into the sunset (papers falling from the sky like snow while a rendition of Let it Snow literally plays during the closing sequence) on his way to he reunited with his children....

I mean...…...trespassing, breaking and entering....robbery, that's a lot for a Christmas movie, but if Die Hard isn't.....then neither is this. Prove me wrong.

Fun fact: UTAGE Flight 141 killed 141 people and some survivors found by a search and rescue team were pronounced DOA, and the Wikipedia article doesn't specify how many. That's why they say "over 140"! Also, um actually, that picture is misleading. It implies that it actually gained altitude, but the flight couldn't because it was too heavy and hit a building. If they had shown the picture of the nose of the plane on the beach, then it would be more accurate. Also also, that wasn't UTAGE's livery at the time of the incident, judging by the double blue lines on the nose of the plane in the crash picture! It looks like UTA's livery, but they shut down before the plane crashed.

Did college humors old production director get fired or something? I missed the old sketches of college humor which always ends with an excessive bang, with so much effort put into some lame part of the sketch which gave off the biggest college humor vibe and always gets people laughing. Like when Mike got blueberry juice or something all over him just for the end of the sketch where he rips a guy in half over him, or that sketch with baking a human meat pie. Now it seems the producers are just a bit lazy, like at the end here when Jess and grant just lazily beats up Tao.
