Scott OT #162: The Day Thread of John McTiernan

Today is the birthday of John McTiernan, director of two of the greatest action movies of all time, Die Hard and Predator (again). He’s directed numerous other popular movies like The Hunt for Red October, Die Hard With a Vengeance, and the Thomas Crown Affair remake.

He’s currently directing nothing because Hollywood decided to excommunicate him after he was caught up in the Anthony Pellicano scandal. Yes, they give Woody Allen, Victor Salva, and Bryan Singer countless second chances but McTiernan? They threw the book at him, Jesus Christ, burn Hollywood down.


Hope you all have fun posting here today and have a great day.
