  1. Iron Man 3 is absolutely a Christmas movie you just one of those nerds that says DieHard isn’t a Christmas movie, if it takes place on Christmas it’s a Christmas movie, if it ends with our protagonist back with his loved one and learns a valuable lesson on Christmas, it’s a Christmas movie. Get with the times, Nerd.

  2. Thank God! I used to make the joke that Die Hard was “my favorite Christmas movie” like 10 or 15 years ago, and then I hadn’t said it in a long time, hell, I nearly forgot about it… and then, like a few years ago, I hear several people say that it is their favorite Christmas movie and acting like they’re really creative and really funny and stuff. I am NOT saying that I came up with the joke, because obviously I didn’t, I AM saying it’s a completely played out thing to say at this point. Any ammo I can use to say that Die Hard is not a Christmas movie makes me happy!

  3. John McClane uses the Christmas party and holiday spirit to try to win his wife back and get his family back together. That is the plot of so many Christmas movies. Just because a terrorist shows up doesn't change his initial reasons for being there.

  4. I see all it’s flaws but the pure hype after the avengers mixed with my young age of 9 will always make iron man 3 hold a special place in my heart.

  5. Something else is that after this movie we can see Tony carry this mentality throughout the rest of the mcu in the fact that not only does he wear the suit significantly less while on screen, but a perfect example is in the first Tom Holland spiderman movie when Tom tells Tony that he can't operate without the suit and Tony says "if you're nothing without the suit then you shouldn't have it"

  6. Its gonna be a sad comment but every film set during Christmas is a Christmas film because usually watching it not around Christmas just makes you sad and miss that particular holiday.
