Today, because it is director John McTiernan's birthday, I have chosen his Christmas classic, Die Hard. This action behemoth stars Bruce Willis as a New York cop in LA to attend his wife's work Christmas party. Things go wrong when Alan Rickman's (in a star-making turn) Han Gruber arrives with his gang of machine-gun wielding psychopaths to rob the place. Sounds fun, right?
The film also stars Bonnie Bedelia, William Atherton and Reginald VelJohnson and the trailer can be seen below.
