When it you think about the Christmas movies, what movie comes to your mind first? For me it’s (Kevin) Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The second movie that comes to my mind is Die Hard. And judging from the following Google Trend search results a lot of people seem to agree.
The number of people who watched Die Hard in December grows each year as well. So it seems like the cult following is growing. I mean it makes sense, it’s just an awesome Christmas movie. You get snow, bad guys and explosions and of course Bruce Willis.
I don’t think there’s a single soul out here, that doesn’t know the movie. And the most famous scenes. But just in case. Here’s the famous scene, where the bad guy Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), falls down from the infamous Nagatomi tower:
Another famous scene is where John McClane (Bruce Willis) has to crawl through a tiny ventilation chamber. Using a tiny lighter to see in the dark.
I hope I didn’t spoil the movie for the 0.1% of people who still haven’t watched it by the year 2020. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you do now! Talking about things you should have seen Game of Thrones is also one of them!
Even though it won’t be Christmas for almost a whole year we’ve got a few movie recommendations for you, if you want to stay a bit longer in this sweet Christmas mood:
A Christmas Story – There’s a reason why TBS plays A Christmas Story for 24 hours straight every Christmas.
The Polar Express – The movie features Tom Hanks and is an animated adventure based on the children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg.
The Night Before – This is the kind of Christmas movie you turn on when kids are asleep. Featuring Anthony Mackie, Seth Rogen, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Tokyo Godfathers – If you’re into Anime, this one is for you. Tokyo Godfathers is a surprisingly funny tale of friendship, family, and the universal desire to belong.
Love Actually – The one and only love movie you watch to watch on Christmas.
It’s January. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas 19/20 and we will be the first to wish you a wonderful Christmas 20/21 :D
