For all the movies this weekend – I do haven them listed – but I’m gonna go retro for you this weekend!
Bruce Willis in Die Hard is being re-released this weekend and you can all begin the debate now – Christmas movie or not? First released in July of 1988 – which is a big cause of the controversy – but the movie does take place over Christmas…sooooo
Next being released to the big screen for a limited time to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary, Love Actually – my all time FAVORITE MOVIE!!!!!
