Garryowen. You especialy today.

The manliest movie I've seen is the Deer Hunter.  When they're not working in steel mills, they're drinking.  When they're not drinking, they're hunting.  When they're not hunting, they're getting married or with their girlfriends.  When they're not with their women, they're fighting a war.  When they're not fighting a war, they're playing Russian roulette.  I couldn't believe how macho this movie was.

No question that the movies you guys listed are definately in my top 10s...but two of the top 5 would have to be...

1. Platoon
2. Full Metal Jacket

Both movies show a balsy...Full Metal Jacket...and somewhat atmospheric...Platoon...looks at combat situations.

how about..."the longest day" check it out..
Link Posted: 3/17/2001 8:31:51 AM EDT
Any movies with the following actors in them: John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jean Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagul, and Arnold Schwarzenegger (with the exception of a few).

Some of the movies are horrible, but still manly! [^]

actually, one of my favorite "manly" movies is "under siege" only because you can get a perfect frontal hit of erika eliniak`s titts!
Link Posted: 3/17/2001 8:53:42 AM EDT
I would say HEAT (has my favorite shoot out) and RONIN are my favs..

Yea! That was the best two minutes of the movie. I know it only lasted about 10 seconds but that is what a remote with rewind is all about!

"The Way of the Gun" was a pretty manly movie.  Great gun work by all involved.[chainsawkill]

You've Got Mail and The Horse Whisperer. I have heard that if you tell womenz that you watch these kinds of movies that it is manly and the chances of getting some increases.

1.  My Fair Lady
2.  Mary Poppins
3.  Joy Luck Club

Actually an Oldie but Goody is Gunga Din.  A true adventure that's based on the Brotherhood of The English Soldier,a d the often mistaken beliefs we have of "others"

"The Dirty Dozen"
This was unanimously voted the No. 1 manliest film of all time. The cast is a giant vat of testosterone. The movie, about 12 death row prisoners who have a chance at being pardoned if they survive a suicide mission in World War II, is the perfect setting for hardened men struggling against authority while bonding with one another and killing a lot of Nazis. There are giant explosions, male bonding, comedy, a rebellious nature and ultimately, "The Dirty Dozen" earning their keep as real men. The cast is like a manhood hall of fame: Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, pro-football great Jim Brown, Donald Sutherland, Telly Savalas and Trini LopezŠ what more do you want in a movie?
Link Posted: 3/18/2001 8:34:12 PM EDT
The Dirty Dozen is great.  Any movie with either John Wayne or Charles Bronson or Lee Marvin is going to be good.

I would add "Von Ryan's Express" to the list along with the Eastwood spagetti westerns, "A Firstful of Dollars", "For a Few Dollars More", and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly".

Gotta go with the full-Kipling classics here: Gunga Din and The Man Who Would Be King.

Oddly, there are no really good Hemingway two-fisted movie adaptations.
Link Posted: 3/19/2001 2:02:30 PM EDT
ok, here`s what bothers me.....the ever lovin` politico`s, keep bitchin` on gun violence, but it`s perfectly ok to let hollywood (and ole` uncle you know who) generate billions of$ on violent movies/tv!! there`s more violence on screen today than ever. more graphic also. i don`t hear too much bitchin` goin on about that! there was a thread on here last week about seeing a movie, and then buying a gun. it`s been done! some youngins` who are not too damn responsible don`t get any ideas from this do they?... wherever big money is, any type weapon desired CAN BE HAD!!!think on the possibilities!..the damn politicians ought to sit back, enjoy the movies, and LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE!!!.....sorry...had to let it out...[frag]

Dont forget the adult videos.

Where Eagles Dare
Not the *most* manly movie (it DOES have Clint Eastwood, and it's WWII), but definately up there in my book of excellent movies, along with Von Ryan's Express.  I love randomly selecting from the video store.
Link Posted: 3/19/2001 10:18:57 PM EDT
Have to agree about Hollywood's hypocrisy, especially blatant in that damned Lethal Weapon 4 piece of crap with all of its anti-gun propoganda and ravingly unsafe gunhandling as an example for the kids. However, as adults we hopefully understand the difference between truth and fiction. Kids need guidance from parents and restrictions in movie theaters. A movie that would be wrong for them to see in a theater is just as wrong for them to see at home after mom & dad rented it.

Back to the less serious topic at hand, in addition to the great suggestions from everyone else:

Extreme Predjudice (great, underrated mid-80s action flick with Nick Nolte & Powers Booth)

The Professionals (late 60s Lee Marvin)

The Outlaw Josey Wales


The Wild Bunch


The Patriot

Dusk 'Till Dawn

Lawrence of Arabia

And Mad Max and The Road Warrior..........was that a bad-*ss car, or what? And probably the best stunts ever put on film.

PATTON, starring George C. Scott. 'Nuff said!
