Ho Ho Ho! It’s December, and the holiday season is in full swing, so it’s time for our latest Christmas-special Movie of the Month, and really what could be more festive than terrorists taking over a skyscraper full of hostages?

That’s right, it’s time to grab your biggest teddy bear, put on your filthiest undershirt, remove your shoes and make fists with your toes because we’re jumping off the roof and into Die Hard! Jay was joined by the film’s champion, MovieRob, along with fellow fans DJ, Jeanette, Richard and Rebecca to discuss whether this really is a Christmas film, why is it such an enduring classic and just who is the biggest arsehole in the film.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a game of Die Hard Trivia. Plus, stick around until the end for an alternate game!
