It’s the winter holidays, and for some people that means it’s time for Christmas movies. So we thought we’d have a Film Club holiday special and talk about one of the most divisive Christmas movies of them all: Die Hard.

Our youth producers got together on Zoom to talk about the Bruce Willis-starring action movie, some of them having only just seen it for the first time.

They debate the age-old question: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? But also talk about what makes a good Christmas movie, how Die Hard holds up decades later, and their favorite parts about it.

Hosted by Forrest Rodgers.

Music by Kendrick Whiteman.
