2. Seize an office building and take holiday partygoers hostage.
Movie: Die Hard (1988)
Villain: Hans Gruber
Played by: Alan Rickman
Feel guilty about succumbing to materialism on Christmas? Take solace in the fact that you are not Hans Gruber. The guy plays his terrorist takeover of a tower off as a socio-political statement, but Hans is just after that cheddar. $640 million in bonds are in the vault and Gruber doesn't care what he has to do to get it, even if it means ruining some peoples' Christmas, and we're not just talking about interrupting the annual Christmas Eve party.
Gruber was a smart guy. He seemed to plan for everything, except for an alcoholic detective who crashed an office Christmas party in hopes of winning back his wife. Yippee-kai-yay, motherfucker, and to all a good night!
