I wanted to post this earlier in the week, but the holiday and life in general got in the way.

The girlfriend and I were talking about the different movies that are set at Christmas time but aren't the warm and fuzzy holiday movies the family gather around the TV to watch on a yearly basis.

Here are a few I thought of off the top of my head:

* Lethal Weapon (1987).
* The Wild Geese (1978). Classic action movie starring Richard Burton and Roger Moore about mercenaries in Africa. Their job is performed on Christmas.
* Silent Night, Bloody Night.
* Black Christmas (the original and the remake).
* P2. A psychological thriller from a couple of years ago.

- Die Hard 2 (can't believe this wasn't posted already!?!)
- Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Shane Black, the writer/creator of the original Lethal Weapon movie takes the "buddy cop" dynamic and turns it on its ear).
