4. "Die Hard" (John McTiernan, 1988)
In many ways, it’s the ultimate Christmas movie, packed with family squabbling, yuletide fireworks (of a different sort) and the sounds of Dean Martin on the soundtrack. But this ain’t your father’s Christmas flick, in case the terrorists didn’t tip you off. Yes, John McTiernan’s game-changing action extravaganza earned a spot on this list with bullets, bravado and Bruce friggin’ Willis. I even refrain from giving it a look throughout the year because I know I’ll be spoiling my holiday appetite. And really, let’s face it. “Now I have a machine gun, ho, ho, ho” is the greatest Christmas movie line ever. Period.
