Derich and Josh discuss the rocky career of John McTiernan, a real intellectual and an artist who just got shoehorned into making action pictures. To hear the guy speak, you would think he'd be a director of art films or dramas. Movies like Predator and Die Hard are successful largely because of him and his artful approach. It's a shame that his career petered out like it did - both due to declining box office performance, and serious legal matters. All this is discussed at length.
