Another simple thread. These are the movies for guys. They don't all have to be Bruce Willis-yippie-kaye-yay Mister Falcon(edited for t.v. version). The movies that we can zone out on, get rowdy for, reflect on. Here be my top ten.

In no particular order...

-Cool Hand Luke


-Fight Club

-The Entire Man with No Name Trilogy (The Good The Bad and The Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More) I refuse to split it up.
Best line FAFDM-"What were the stakes again"
-"Your life."

-Backdraft (the only movie that can make me almost cry. Lost my little cousin in a tragedy and the "Who's your brother Brian?" line is gonna get me one of these days)

-Rebel Without A Cause

-Trains Planes & Automobiles

-Office Space

-Dazed & Confused

-Vertigo(this is quite possibly a completely flawless movie. Hitchcock's finest)

High Plains Drifter was even better than the "dollar" movies.

Townsman Wimp: We'll pay you $10 a head to kill those guys.

Drifter: $10 an ear.

"Heartbreak Ridge"

"Now you listen to me. I'm mean nasty and tired. I eat consentino wire and I piss napalm and I can put a round through a fleas ass at 200 feet. So go hump someone else's leg mutt-face, before I push yours in."

I don't like guy-movies much more than chick-flicks. A great movie is a great movie, regardless of genre; and testosterone doesn't make up for a bad script. Having said that ....

(in no particular order)

"Pulp Fiction"
"Reservoir Dogs"
"The Magnificent Seven"
"The Great Escape"
"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"
"The Godfather"
"Taxi Driver"
"Raging Bull"
"Dirty Harry"
"The French Connection"

*smacks self in head for forgetting Reservoir Dogs.*

Note to self: watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in its entirety, not just when it says 5 mins left.

Butch: I think they're in the trees up ahead.

Sundance: In the bushes on the left.

Butch: I'm tellin' ya, they're in the trees up ahead!

Sundance: You take the trees, I'll take the bushes.

Garris: Will you two beginners cut it out?

Butch: Well, we're just tryin' to spot an ambush, Mr. Garris.

Garris: Morons. I've got morons on my team. Nobody's going to rob us going down the mounatin. We have got no money going down the mountain. When we have got the money, on the way back, then you can sweat. Bingo.

Not into macho garbage or chick flicks.

Bookman's got a good list. Though I've never seen Reservoir Dogs, Raging Bull or The Magnificent Seven.

Of course, does anybody here really care what a person, who's never seen any Lethal Weapon movies, thinks of "guy movies?" Probably not.

Educational documentaries and over the top Dumb And Dumber-type comedies for me.

If you like older movies at all, Jimmy, you owe it to yourself to see The Magnificent Seven. It's a western, with Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, and Robert Vaughn. The more I see it, the more I appreciate it.

Dirty Dozen
Where Eagles Dare
Great Escape
Von Ryan's Express
Schindler's List
Deer Hunter

Liar Liar
Ace Ventura
Stripes (the first half)
Marx Brothers movies
W.C. Fileds movies
Three Stooges shorts

Let's see, a lot of gangster films for me:

(I'd maybe put Memento in here somewhere, but it's hardly a real guy-movie)
Taxi Driver

(If we're doing comedies, then):

The Pink Panther Strikes Again (I remember peeing my pants just a little bit)
My Cousin Vinny
The Big Lebowski (John Turturro's character could be a movie on itself)
Dirty Work

A lot of my favorites were mentioned here.. No need to rehash. I'll just add that I enjoy Kung Fu movies. Not the new Jet Li Jackie Chan type stuff, I like the classics. Totally dubbed with old long-white-bearded guys who can defy all laws of physics and kill with their pinkie. Shaw Brothers Productions. The Bruce Lee flicks were good as well- Game of Death, Enter the Dragon, etc..

***Start of embarrassment***
I always loved First Blood- haven't seen it in a few years but, Nevertheless...

"You don't seem to want to accept the fact that you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare. With a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, to ignore weather, to live off the land. To eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill, period. Win by attrition. Well, Rambo was the best!"

I know we're talking about movies, but Kung Fu was my favorite TV show back in the day. There's nothing like watching a soft-spoken, little runt kicking ten people's asses at once.

I was a Kung Fu fanatic when I as a kid. Later on in life it pissed me off to find out that the part was written for, and was supposed to be played by Bruce Lee. But the network thought he looked "Too Oriental", so they got David carradine who is half white and, I guess only looks "Kinda Oriental".

Someday, I'm gonna walk the earth. Like Caine in Kung Fu. You know, walk from place to place, meet people, get in adventures.

Well, uh... I don't remember that part. That was an unusual choice for Caine.
