You're Asking The Wrong Questions About Die Hard

Every year, people who should know better, get into petty squabbles about whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie.

The correct debate topic is if there is a superior quintessential 80s movie.

Has any decade post-80's produced the big-budget one-liner laden violent action movie? Arnold and Bruce owned that space outright.

How about that there were not one but two standard-issue 80s jerk/authority figures?

William (this man has no dick) Atherton

Paul (don't mess with the bull) Gleason

Coupled with a young Alan Rickman and his team of big haired German henchman and you're in for a treat - even if you're not in it for the nostalgia.
