Only ten sleeps to go! This week's Movie of the Week is the legendary "Die Hard", arguably the best Christmas movie ever. Although fiercely debated whether it is actually a Christmas movie or not, we're classifying it as one because there is no criteria or committee that determines who gets on the list or not.
New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realizes that there's no one to save the hostages -- but him.
