When you think of Christmas movies, what comes to mind? A Christmas Story? The Grinch Who Stole Christmas? Home Alone? Yeah me too. The big question mark for me is when some wanna call Die Hard a Christmas movie. No. Just no.
In fact seems to be the latest controversy threatening to tear this country apart - should Die Hard be considered a Christmas movie?
One the one hand, the movie does take place around Christmas. But on the other hand, it's far from a heartwarming holiday tale. I mean nothing screams Christmas more than a group of terrorists holding a bunch of people hostage on Christmas Eve.
Turns out most Americans don't consider it a holiday film! (Yay, people do have 1/2 a brain after all). A recent poll from the Hollywood Reporter found 62% of people said Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie, while only 25% said it is.
And this probably won't surprise you - men were more likely to consider Die Hard a Christmas movie than women, and people aged 30-44 were more likely to say yes than people over 55.
So where do you come in on this? Do you consider Die Hard a Christmas movie?
Yeah I thought so. 😉
Here's a couple of movie clips and the trailer just so you can re-live Die Hard's (non) Christmas greatness.
