Edward Scissorhands

(1990, directed by Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp and Wynona Ryder.)

Rated PG-13

A pinocchio story about a constructed guy that has scissors for hands. He cuts things. It’s interesting. Released December 14th, 1990, this film is considered by many to be a Holiday treasure. Was it just when it was released, or does the story embody many of the ideals of the Holidays?

Die Hard

(1988, directed by John McTiernan, starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman.)

It occurs on Christmas Eve at a Christmas Party. A New York City Detective is trying to be with his Family for the Holidays. It even snows at the end. Is it a Holiday movie? The argument continues!
