It’s our 3rd Holiday Spectacular, and this year, Nate and Ryan are watching a more contentious entry into the Holiday Movie Canon: 1988’s Die Hard. For a Holiday Spectacular this outside the box, Nate and Ryan called in some back up. Friend of the program and most frequent guest Evan Mather joins the conversation as a life-long Die Hard fan (you’ll have to listen to see what that fan group is called).
With Evan’s help, Nate and Ryan discuss the virtues of the 80’s action movie, Bruce Willis’ charisma, Alan Rickman’s devilish magnetism, and if you can enjoy Die Hard at Christmas time without being tremendously annoying.
What are your thoughts on Die Hard? Can it be considered a holiday movie? Where does it rank for you among action movies? What outside-the-box movie do you watch every winter? Let us know!
