Die Hard

The quintessential Christmas film. What else need I say? Although definitely worth a rewatch, because it’s easy to forget what Bruce Willis looked like with hair. He must’ve been just on his way out from Moonlighting on this film – this really was his breakthrough role, before there was such a thing as Bruce Willis films. I mean, it’s no Hudson Hawk, but still… a classic! 👍👍
