Released in 1988 and ultimately spawning an entire franchise, Die Hard has recently beat out Christmas classics like How The Grinch Stole Christmas and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in the minds (and hearts) of the internet for the title of "The Greatest Christmas Movie Ever."
Sure, the only thing that really links it to Christmas is the fact that it takes place during the holidays (and starts out at an office Christmas party), but that doesn't matter! It's one of the greatest action movies ever made and launched Bruce Willis's career as a big-screen tough guy.
Not only that but it also features Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber, one of the singularly most entertaining villains in movie history!
Of course there's also Carl Winslow from Family Matters as Sgt. Al Powell, a beat cop who's trying to make amends for accidentally shooting a civilian while on duty.
And who could forget Argyle?
The only unfortunate thing is, this Christmas movie is pretty hard to introduce your kids to. Y'know, what with the swearing and violence and all.
Wouldn't it be great if there was some way for your little ones to get the full experience without having to warp their tiny little minds? Well apparently comedian Doogie Horner agrees, because he's publishing Die Hard as a Christmas book this October!
