'Die Hard' – Sunny Los Angeles, gunfire, East German terrorists, explosions, and John McClane’s bloody, glass-filled feet? While John McTiernan’s action classic “Die Hard” may not seem like holiday movie fodder on the surface, some would argue that it’s the best “Dad saves Christmas” movie ever made. Set on Christmas Eve, New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) must save his estranged wife and her coworkers from a group of heavily armed hostage takers led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman). How can you deny that “Die Hard” is a holiday classic when one of its most memorable lines is "HO, HO, HO! Now I have a machine gun!"?
