TOP FIVE: John McTiernan Movies

5) Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995)

Starting with Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995). Oh, 1995, where have you gone. A year when it was still normal to expect another Schwarzenegger, Stallone or Van Damme movie to come out – those guys were still on top back then. I saw this movie at the tender age of 10 back in the day, a time when they still really didn’t give a fuck and just let kids into see these violent actioners. Die Hard 3 is a rarity – when a third movie and second sequel is released and doesn’t suck. It’s actually the second best Die Hard movie, but then, it’s a John McTiernan movie, who would expect any less. It’s all just so effortlessly cool and from the eye of a real artist.

    Wrong info. The female role recast by Crichton with a younger actress was the Wendol’s mother. No Diane Verona’s role.

    I would put Die Hard With a Vengeance ahead of the 13th Warrior.
    God Bless John McTiernan

    Big T’s version of The Thomas Crown Affair was cool.

    His last movie was “Basic”
    In 2003.
    It’s been way too long.
    Come Back John McTiernan

    Die Hard is McTiernan’s best film followed closely by Predator and I would have included The Thomas Crown Affair instead of 13th Warrior.
    God I hope he makes something soon.
