This thread was inspired by my successful completion of RAMBO! Just to sum it up...there is a reason why RAMBO has been the number one Blue Ray disk for so many weeks.

Although Bravehart, Gladiator, Platoon & Full Metal Jacket are movies that every man can enjoy. Women will watch them (when asked). So they don't count as a Man Movie! Too much story. Plus any movie that makes me somewhat watery (because of plot) cannot be considered a man movie!

This should be a movie that you just can't get girls to watch with you....Nor, do you want them to.

Rambo might possibly become my number one Man Movie for me. However, I'm going to have to re-watch....

I was gonna say Tombstone, but my wife LOVES that movie. So maybe the Terminator or Slapshot or...JAWS! Yes, Jaws.

I don't agree, Man Movies can have a good plot unless you mean Man Movies are just grunting and violence.

Full Metal Jacket, Godfather I and II, The Magnificent Seven, Blade Runner

Not just grunting and violence...I'd include Porky's as an example. I mean movies that are made for men as the target audience that the typical lady would not enjoy.

All kinds of awesomeness...if you like the grunting and violence thing. Very graphic.

Goodfellas, Scarface and Casino.

Personally, I think Casino is the best of the mob films. Scarface is probably the more "manly man" of the films. Hell, if there was a channel that just showed these three films I'd be one happy camper.

Godfather I & II are up there as well, but I like them for entirely different reasons than the other films.

This is a difficult question - simply because my fiancee is pretty much unlike most women I know. She generally hates chick flicks and much prefers horror flicks.

If I were to speak generally, I think that Good Morning Vietnam, Passenger 57, Snakes on a Plane, and Anaconda may qualify.

The fiancee suggested anything with Stephen Segal may qualify as a Man Movie. I'd have to agree.

The problem is, Man movie usually means bad movie that only guys will watch. With that in mind, the worst movie I will still watch repeatedly is:

Iron Eagle

Horrible, horrible movie. I watch the sequels too.

Man I can't believe you didn't mention the one movie I WILL NOT watch again and I hold it against you that you made me watch once.

I'm not sure if these qualify as Man movies but they are definitely movies I can't get my wife to watch.

Gotta go with "Enter the Dragon". Also, any Sonny Chiba "Street Fighter" movie, though some of the really violent scenes coud be interperted as unintenionally funny (ex. when he rips off the black guy's nuts).

I'm going to throw in "American Beauty" because I have never ever met a woman who liked it who wasn't a lesbian.

And most of these action flicks mentioned are loved by the ladies of the heartland.

I've watched Crocodile Dundee 2 over and over and my wife can't stand it. I'll pick that since Rambo was already taken.

Dude, can you fix that quote? I never said that Stephen Segal's movies were bad...that was your addition.

And yes, while they can be bad, that's not the context of the post, now is it?
