@Zealian It's a fairly recent thing to consider any movie that takes place at Christmas to be "a Christmas movie", and some people just want to be contrary to the sentimentality they grew up with. So, along with Die Hard, Batman Returns and Lethal Weapon are high on contemporary lists of favorite Christmas movies. *Dawot?* There are also a whole bunch of Christmas-themed horror movies, with killer elves, ax-wielding Santas, and that sort of thing, which has been playing frequently this week on the awful-movie TV channel. I think a lot of that attitude is from people my age wanting to get away from the Fifties values that most conventional Christmas movies express.
