I'm advancing a theory and thought you might all be interested in joining me. I know many people who claim Die Hard, whether ironically or not, to be their favorite Christmas movie.
But what was the first movie featuring a hostage situation at Christmas where a lone wolf infiltrates and solves the situation through his quick wit and skill at gunplay while communicating with the authorities on the outside? A Pistol for Ringo!
If you have friends who are into action movies but aren't into spaghettis, perhaps this could be the touchstone to share your interest in the genre!
