"DIE HARD" is the Best Christmas Movie!

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Pipeson rented DIE HARD (1988) and we watched it together for the first time.

Chair-gripping action all the way through. With some of funniest one-liners ever. And then we laughed together for a long time when it ended. Bruce Willis was brilliant.

They said "Merry Christmas" way more often than the cast of A Christmas Story. Just sayin'.

It’s ok, but it can’t hold a candle to A Christmas Carol (1984), starring George C. Scott.

This is the Ghost of Christmas Present, a deranged hippie Santa Clause wearing a holly wreath as a crown and nothing under his robe:

That was Edward Woodward. Old-timers may remember him as the star of TV's The Equalizer.

I agree but this may be the runner up.

I just finished up Get the Gringo with him. This film needs to go on my "next" list.

Rent a movie for 48 hours.... spend the first two hours watching it.

That leaves only 46 hours to watch it again.

Second time watching DIE HARD was just as fun as the first!

Then I introduced Pipeson to this cultural event:
