Sometimes, when it's Christmas time, I like to watch movies that are, y'know, Christmas movies. Some of them are movies like It's a Wonderful Life (seriously, if you can't love that flick you might be EVIL), some of them are movies like Christmas Vacation (which I kinda think is really awful when compared to the original Vacation and pretty annoying), and some of them are movies like the first two Die Hard movies.
Yet I'm here today to say that Die Hard 2 is pretty awesome too. While its precursor is certainly one of the coolest movies of all time, the sequel - directed by Finnish awesomemaker Renny Harlin - takes the heroic John McClane in a deliciously pulpy direction. Harlin's film follows the "rules" of the sequel - you've gotta think this is one of the main culprits that was spoofed by Last Action Hero three years later - by amping up almost everything people loved about Die Hard. Of course, that all makes the film a bit cheesier than John McTiernan's 1988 flick....but isn't that something we love about most midnight movies anyway?
