OK yes this is a classic Christmas movie I agree. My only gripes is the Blu Ray version is not in the best possible Hi Definition as some other movies of that era. It is still better then the up-conversion of the DVD in my opinion. If I knew about this prior to purchase I would've not replaced my dvd copy.
The Way Of The Gun errs once or twice on the side of needless poetry -- like most screenwriter/directors, McQuarrie is in love with the sound of his own snappy dialogue -- but never breaks its own rules or betrays its own characters.
