Note: Just in time for Christmas, Alonso (contributor to What The Flick?! and co-host of the Linoleum Knife podcast) joins me to revisit the second film in the influential, action franchise. We talk about fake snow, setup and payoff, the Die Hard legacy, Christmas movies and action films in a post-9/11 America. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.
