Die Hard Review!

Believe it or not, I had never seen this Christmas movie until I married Jason, AND I thought I would hate it. What?!

So, grown-up Christmas movie night last night and here’s what we’ve learned from Die Hard viewing 2019…

I miss Alan Rickman so much and love him devotedly. Also, he canNOT pull off a German accent, and his American accent is only slightly better. 😁

I never thought one of my favorite lines in any movie would ever include a swear word, but, I mean “Yipee-ky-yay $&@“ I just WAIT for this line and laugh so hard. No idea why. Therapists and neurologists, consult with all my past and current Baptist pastors and figure this out for me, won’t you?

The fact that Jason rails against John McClain’s treatment of his wife at the beginning of the movie makes me love Jason more than ever. Mostly because he would move heaven and earth for me to progress in my career…and he has.

Slimy salesmen are slimy salesmen at every level of the ladder. I wasn’t exactly HAPPY when the stupid, cocaine sniffing what’s-his-face dude got shot, but it didn’t make me cry.

Taking your shoes off in an office building is gross. You don’t know WHAT’S in that carpet and you could end up walking all over broken glass while trying to free 30 hostages from a bunch of German terrorists. Please keep your shoes on. You’ll thank me later.

We rented it on Amazon for $3.99. I think it’s on Crackle for free, but I also think they do commercials and we hate commercials so much, it’s worth $3.99 not to have them.

Merry Christmas, be of good cheer! Don’t fall off of any buildings!
