5. Die Hard

This is definitely the movie that is surprising in our Christmas movies top for 2013 but we cannot deny that it is a classic and that so many people want to watch it. This is the movie that made Bruce Willis famous, even though it appeared in 1988. The reason why it is recommended is that it is set in LA during Christmas. Die Hard is perfect for the action lover that does not really want to watch movies that are 100% about the Christmas spirit. It is perfect for the night before Christmas or a little after.
