While not my personal favorite, I admit DIE HARD arguably set the standard for the holiday action epic. What’s your favorite holiday-associated Action film(s) and why?
End of Days.
Because it’s fantastic that’s why.
Lethal Weapon deserves a mention.
Shane Black. That’s a good start to why.
Gremlins. Nice dark horror movie that’s completely absurd.
I should be said “nontraditional” holiday films as GREMLINS rocked
My number one would have to be Die Hard.
But as someone has already said that, and Gremlins and Lethal Weapon, and if you’re in a Shane Black kind of mood, can I suggest Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?
Scrooged! A classic.
Batman Returns… That’s awesome!
The concept, not the movie… that kinda sucks, hard.
Star Wars Holiday Special?
Batman Returns is far better than The Dark Knight Rises to me.
Different tastes for everybody, nothing wrong with that.
I actually remembered Batman Returns rather fondly until I re-watched it last year. Now, not so much…
I tried rewatching the first Burton/Keaton Batman not long ago and really didn’t care for it either.
If there was one movie growing up that should have NOT been rated PG Gremlins is that movie… Absolutely terrifying… Scarred… To… This… Day…
Die Hard II… When the baddy takes the icicle to the eyeball… Classic!
That’s good to know! Loved that movie! Now I shall never watch it again as to not ruin it!
Can we get a Mod in here! He shouldn’t be allowed subject us to that.
Rare Exports is a different sort of Chrimbo Flick.
