SHOWNOTES: Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy Festivus to all! Hosts Beau, Robert, Ash, and Dakota ring in the holiday season with our discussion on the classic 1988 Christmas/action epic Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis, the late and great Alan Rickman, Reginald vel Johnson, Bonnie Bedilia, and many, many others. We talk about the legendary production of this movie and the book that inspired it, the many iconic action set pieces and locations throughout, the amazing cast of actors that gave this film its charm, the oftentimes loose and jovial humor of the screenplay, and the timeless musical score, and then we lay out the five main elements that make Die Hard a Christmas movie as described by Renegade Cut (@renegadecut).
