131 minutes — R, John McTiernan, United States, 1988
The best Christmas movie ever! The best everyman action movie ever! The best Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman movie ever! The definition of 80s action, Die Hard was emulated (or ripped off) by countless wannabes (Under Siege, I'm looking at you) that followed. Yippee-ki-yay, stocking-stuffers.
