The subject of holiday movies is a touchy one. In a time of Christmas cheer and sharing glad tidings, conversations about which festive film is best can get heated.

This is a case for John McClane.
Die Hard director John McTiernan is headed to the slammer for a year, having lost his appeal to have his 2010 prison sentence overturned for lying to the FBI in a wiretapping case, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Like a scene out of a crime movie, the filmmaker, 62, pleaded guilty to hiring celebrity private investigator Anthony Pellicano to wiretap film producer Chuck Roven after they both worked on the movie Rollerball.
McTiernan had remained free on bail while he appealed the conviction (which was about lying, not wiretapping) to the U.S. Supreme Court. The highest court in the land has now declined to review the case.
