    He doesn’t get Die Hard at all.

    The important thing to take away from the Die Hard movies is that: John McClain still gets divorced; after saving his wife from terrorists, on Christmas, TWICE. Salvation cannot be obtained through works, and the only hope we have is through gods grace, thus it perfectly closes the loop with the birth of Christ. Therefore Die Hard isn’t just a Christmas movie, it is modern day Voltaire with John McClain as Candide.

    Not only is it a Christmas movie, it is an art film.

    Don’t let the philistines tell you otherwise.

    So “Die Hard” is about the fickleness and hardness of a woman’s heart?

    That is one interpretation. I will have to judge it based upon your ascot and pipe. You do have an ascot and pipe don’t you?
