My Favorite Christmas movie is DIE HARD!
NYPD's own John McClane (Bruce Willis) treks across country to see his children and estranged wife Holly (note the Christmas-y name! Holly!); who's enjoying a spectacular bump "up" in her career at her new position, with offices in the famed Nagatomi Plaza. McClane arrives feeling almost dejected, but centering himself by "making fists" with his toes in the carpet, when Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) and cohorts storm in for a huge theft! It's a roller coaster ride with all the great hallmarks of a holiday movie--the importance of family, friendship, sacrifice, never giving up.
And of course lots and lots of explosions!
