e Hard is not, in fact, a Christmas movie, and arguing about the distinction has become just as much a yearly tradition.With all of that in mind, we present to you both sides of the argument one from an RT staffer who believes Die Hard should be considered a Christmas movie, and one from an RT staffer who doesn t and ask you to help us settle the debate once and for all. So, is Die Hard a Christmas movie?Yippie-Ki-Yay!(Photo by 20th Century Film Corp. courtesy Everett Collection)Die Hard is a Christmas movie like a stocking is a present: The packaging is different, and some years it hangs nowhere near the tree, but that makes it no less part of the tradition.The gift of Die Hard is that it gives everyone a kick-ass movie to register your disgust (whether genuine or facetious) at the overbearing supremacy of December 25th. What other holiday comes with as much stress or as many marching orders? They give us songs about white Christmases and snow; this movie sets up among palm trees and a steel skyscraper. They speak of hope and goodwill; Die Hard delivers hard-nosed cynicism and explosions. For most, Christmas is about coming together with family. For everyone else, Christmas is about going somewhere you don t want to be, stuck in a building with people you can t escape essentially the plot of Die Hard. This is a machine gun pressed against the status quo, necessary more than ever now that modern American society has devolved Christmas into a political battleground.It boils down to this: America need a movie to push back the baggage of the holidays. It could ve been Lethal Weapon. It could ve been Tangerine. Hell, it could ve been Edward Scissorhands. But it wasn t them. You know why? Because when you re in need of the right movie at the wrong time, you need yippie-ki-yayin John McClane.Yippie-Ki-Nay!(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)There are a few things that should qualify a film as a Christmas movie, but the most commonly accepted distinction demands that the holiday play a central role in the plot. Even on this most basic requirement, Die Hard fails while it certainly takes place on Christmas Eve, the date is entirely incidental to the plot. The holiday party could easily have been replaced by any number of work-related celebrations, and John McClane could have been making the trip from Philly to L.A. for any number of family-related reasons. It didn t have to be Christmas Eve, because literally none of the significant plot developments in the story would need to be changed if it took place during any other time of the year. If that s not enough, what about the spirit of the holiday? Christmastime should be a celebration of family and friends, a time for joy and uplift and peace and love. But no, let s go ahead and watch greedy terrorists (yeah, I know, Who said we were terrorists? ) blow people s brains out, and then watch a wise-ass cop wreak righteous, bloody vengeance upon them. Oh yeah, that feels like Christmas. If you need more convincing, consider that Die Hard opened on July 20. That s right, July it was more summer blockbuster than holiday film, and its marketing reflected that.Look, at the end of the day, is Die Hard one of the best action films ever made? Hell yes. But is it a Christmas movie? No, no it is not. And if you don t believe me, ask Bruce Willis himself, or, you know, the 62% of the population who agree with me. 不过这款手游倒确实有点3代的味道了，不管是故事还是战斗，这种品质肉眼可见精良的动作游戏，在目前手游市场确实不多见。硬要说的话，之前那个魂系手游《帕斯卡契约》算一个，而这个""鬼泣""手游质量感觉和那个差不多。

Speaking of heart attacks and artists, how s TV development treating you? I mean you seem extraordinarily busy. Gaiman: I am, although, you know, a week from now on the 31st of May, Good Omens comes out and happens, and I get to retire as a showrunner. I guess I might have to come out of retirement if we get nominated for awards — just turn up at award dinners and things. But basically as far as I m concerned I made this thing that I promised Terry Pratchett I would make and now I m done. I don t have to be a showrunner anymore. I love talking all the things that I ve learned in the four years I ve been making Good Omens and getting to apply them to other things and getting to help other people make things.So you know, it s nice to be a producer of Gormenghast, for example, and I m very actually looking forward to seeing and helping Toby Whithouse along and looking forward to Toby going out to the world with his Gormenghast. I m looking forward to being more involved in adaptations of my own stuff coming up in the future, but I don t really want to write them again, I don t want to showrun again. I would really like to become a writer, and possibly even a novelist again.I hear you have some talent for that.Gaiman: As I’ve said, I will become a retired showrunner, and in my retirement, I may take up writing.(Photo by Amazon Prime)Good Omens looks like it was a blast to film. What was that experience like?Gaiman: It was a blast to film. Good Omens was fascinating because it was an incredibly long shoot. We were making Good Omens, I think we shot altogether for about 120 days, and it s a lot like making a 6-hour-long movie. And when we finished, it was then followed by 11 months of post-production, so that was long, long days, hard work, making something huge, but also — more by luck than anything else, because it just came down to me and director Douglas MacKinnon so much of the time — we wound up making something that feels very, very handmade and feels pretty personal. We got to make personal choices, and there wasn t anybody leaning over our shoulders saying, No you need this. You can t do that. Is that one of the joys of working with a streaming company?Gaiman: I think Amazon trusted us, which was great, and the BBC who were technically our producers, nobody had ever done anything like this before, and they didn t really know what it was, and they just left us alone to get on with it.Well, you can t argue with the result – it s a joy to watch your work come to life with such talented actors.Neil Gaiman: Thank you. I m so proud of it. I made the show for Terry Pratchett, he asked me to make it before he died, and then he died. I wanted to make a show that Terry would have loved, and make a show that Terry would have laughed at, but also that contained all of the ideas and the textures of Good Omens, and I think we did it.May I ask, what is going on with The Sandman? That s one I ve been really looking forward to.Gaiman: Sandman has been interesting, because for the last 30 years … people have failed to make all sorts of versions of Sandman because the time was not right. In the 90s people were going, “We don t know how to make a million R-rated film that would have any CGI in it that doesn t work for us,” and all of this kind of stuff. What s great about now is we ve reached an era in which the fact that there are well over 80 Sandman stories becomes a feature, it becomes an advantage, rather than a problem with how you cram all that into 120 minutes.So, we now have the CGI, we now have the technology, and we now have an adult audience, and we have millions upon millions of people who love Sandman and would love to see it. So I would be very, very surprised if we do not actually get some cool Sandman thing happening in the next two or three years. But then again, there have been many things over the years with Sandman where I ve gone, Ah, OK. Well, they re going to make this. And this is going to be great then. And it has never happened. So anything is possible.Good Omens debuts on Friday, May 31 on Amazon Prime.
George R.R. Martin signs a reported eight-figure deal to develop more HBO and HBO Max programming, Indira Varma is among the new stars confirmed for Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi, Colin Firth will lead an eight-episode drama adaptation of classic true-crime docuseries The Staircase, and more of the week s top TV and streaming news.TOP STORYThe Game of Thrones Broadway Production Will Be a Prequel Story Featuring Ned Stark and Jaime Lannister(Photo by HBO )George R. R. Martin’s Game Of Thrones universe looks to dominate TV land for years to come, and now he has his sights set on The Great White Way: Martin is developing a Thrones stage show that he’s planning for a Broadway debut in 2023, THR reports.The production, which is also planned for London and Australia, will revolve around a prequel storyline, with characters deceased in the TV GoT timeline, like Ned Stark and Jaime Lannister, alive and kicking in the stage show. Despite the many GOT prequel stories being developed for TV, the play would mark the first time beloved characters from the HBO series will be revived for a new project.The play will specifically revolve around a historical event from Westeros’ past: The Great Tourney at Harrenhal, “a landmark event that previously was shrouded in mystery … a story centered around love, vengeance, madness and the dangers of dealing in prophecy … revealing secrets and lies that have only been hinted at until now,” according to THR. Given that setting, characters like Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, legendary knight Arthur Dayne, Robert Baratheon, Jaime Lannister, and Ned Stark would appear, likely as teenagers. Ned s sister Lyanna would also feature prominently, as her relationship with the prince — the spark that leads to Robert s Rebellion against the Mad King — is established publicly at the tournament.In other GOT news, George R.R. Martin just signed a five-year, eight-figure deal to create yet more programming for HBO and HBO Max.With half a dozen new projects in his A Song of Ice and Fire universe already in various states of development at HBO, Martin is also executive producing a pair of adaptations of other fantasy creators’ works for the network.The very busy author, producer, and entrepreneur also has a series in development at Peacock, a feature film to be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, and, THR reports, even a theme park ride, via his experiential immersive entertainment company.Star Trek First Contact Day: Trekkies Gathering Online to Celebrate a Pivotal AnniversaryAs any devoted Trekkie – and anyone who saw the big-screen movie Star Trek: First Contact – knows, April 5, 2063, is the future date when humans first make contact with Vulcans, marking the historical beginning of collaboration, exploration, and acceptance in Trek history.
