Christmas films with guns, violence and rude words

If you think that Christmas films are all about tidings of joy you clearly aren't watching the right films.

I spent the weekend with friends and we ended up having a Christmas film feast inspired by a lot of mulled wine and a very loud Spotify playlist. But we weren't after the usual festive schmaltz, so this is the triple play we ended up with. 

Die Hard (1988)
"Now I have a machine gun. Ho ho ho." 
Bruce Willis wise-cracking his way barefoot around a building taken hostage by bad guys, trying to save his marriage and everyone in the building. And it all kicks off at an office Christmas party.

Go (1999)
"They can't evict you on Christmas! Then you'd be ho-ho-homeless!"
Three interconnected stories including drugs, sex, violence, Las Vegas, raving and the ups and downs of a career in supermarket retail. At Christmas.

In Bruges (2008)
"There are not many people around in these alcoves at Christmas time. If I were to murder a man I would murder him here. Are you sure this is the right word, alcoves?"
Two hitmen killing time in Bruges, one of them falling apart, one of them enjoying the architecture, a dwarf shooting a weird Belgian film, lots of drugs, a bit of killing, and plenty of beer.

Any other suggestions for a Merry freaking Christmas?
