Die Hard just delivers. It's what a good action movie should be. Real people fighting plausible (however improbable) bad guys and situations. This was from the days when John McClain ran around barefoot with a machine gun (Ho-Ho-Ho), not surfing on the back of jets or taking down the entire Russian army.
It's just a great action movie. And I had completely forgotten the Run DMC Christmas music on the soundtrack!! It just makes the holiday spirit complete.
The print of the movie delivered via the Amazon FireStick in HD is magnificent. It's clean. It's full HD. It's presented in a matted 2.35:1 aspect ration (meaning it's got the black bars at the top and bottom because it's a true wide screen presentation, so nothing is edited to fit the screen).
It's weird thinking this was Alan Rickman's first movie. It's weird thinking that this movie will be 30 next year. I didn't think I was that old!
This is one of those movies that I will stop at and watch if I surf across it on TV. This movie is like comfort food. And yes, I consider it my favorite Christmas movie!

The only thing I never understood is how in the world Holly McClane would ever consider going by Genero when you've got a hero like John McClane to give you his name.
So I bought it and watched it on Christmas Day and while not along the traditional lines of "It's a Wonderful Life" and the incessantly overplayed "A Christmas Story", this was a holiday movie for the times and one hell of a good way to spend the evening after the family festivities.
All sardonic humor aside, this version was great and reasonably cheap at the time that I purchased it. Keep in mind that this was the movie that changed the trajectory of Bruce Willis's career from a tv schlub into a legitimate action hero. The direction is top notch as is the supporting cast.
Well worth the price via Amazon.
This ultra violent film spawned 1000 imitators and still hasn't been topped. The story is simple: one cop vs. a group of villainous thugs. Who is going to win? The cop is John is McClane. This is a classic role defined by Bruce Willis. John McClane is smart mouthed, resourceful, and flawed. In a sense, he is the ultimate modern hero. He steps up in time of serious need. McClane is attending a business party with his estranged wife. During the holiday event the building is stormed by a group of thieves looking to rob a vault that holds $640 million in bearer bonds. This group of murderous thieves is led by the one and only Hans Gruber, played with perfection by Alan Rickman. Who will survive? Watch and learn. Die hard is a battle between good & evil. John McClane may be a man who does not like himself very much, but does the best he can in a bad situation. Die Hard has serious repeat value & is a classic that is always a worthwhile revisit.
