Guy Flick Time, Quick Poll....(34 posts)

Guy Flick Time, Quick Poll....MB1
Feb 27, 2002 12:16 PM
Miss M is away on business, it's guy flick night. Help me out here.

I'm thinking "The Dirty Dozen" an all time classic. Of course Elefantino brought up "Airplane" last week-could be a contender. Anything with John Wayne in it works.

What should I rent, suggestions anyone?

Enemy at the Gates or She Wore a Yellow RibbonMcAndrus

For a recent movie, Enemy at the Gates is one of the better guy flicks.

If you a Wayne fan I'd go with She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.
War flicks work. nmMB1

deniro is great. a lot of car chases and shooting, and the end is a bit ambiguous, leading you to let your imagination run!

The all-time best sports movie in history:

Slap Shot

Some of my favorites.terry b

my wife does two multi-week horse shows per year so I have a biannual Lonely Guy Film Festival. I tend to go for violence and philospohy, that arcane combo that she won't tolerate.

Recent favorites:

The Professional: Ascetic hit man Jean Reno develops a heart and saves a lonely orphan while killing about 1000 people in a just cause. Gary Oldman is the bad guy.

Romeo is Bleeding: Gary Oldman as a bad cop (is there a thread here?) plays police department off of the Russian (as in Lena Olin) mob off of the Mafia. He doesn't win.

Ghost Dog: Forest Whitaker as a modern day Samurai hit man trying to remain noble in an unforgiving world.

Killing Zoe: Eric Stoltz as a safecracker in a Paris job gone bad, real bad.

If you're really lonely try The Hunger, campy horror with David Bowie and a scene with Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve that will make you forget your bike. A bit dated but not bad to watch on fast forward.
second those: professional, ghost dog. nmJs Haiku Shop

Heat, Caddyshack, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon, Uncle Buck. Then there are the Hot Tight @sses type of movies.....

Full Metal Jacket, anyone who was in the Marine Corps can identify with the first half of the movie. The actor playing the head D.I. was a retired marine who was a D.I. in The Crotch ("The Crotch" is what grunts referred to as Marine Corps life)...

sophisticated, wife out of town, drinking burboun: any Bond movie without Roger Moore.

gritty, wife out of town, sit around in the same sweats for two days (yuck!): any Clint Eastwood "Spaghetti Western"

wife out of town, ride all day and crash all night drinking beers: science fiction. you name it. nothing low-budget.

To be a good "Guy Flick" most everybody has to dieMB1
Feb 27, 2002 2:33 PM
or end up alone.

And a good guy flick can't have "DUDE" in its title!
most all their brain cells did die!peloton
Feb 27, 2002 4:03 PM
The beginning of 'Dude' when they were waking up and trying to remember what happened reminded me of a couple places that I lived/hung out at as an undergrad. I could make another movie now- Dude, when did I get so lame?! Oh well... my liver feels better.

How about 'Platoon' for a good guy flick?

I was going to say that, I have it on dvd. Also try Pulp Fiction.

If you like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, rent this early Stanley Kubrick film from 1956. It's an outstanding film that was a major influence on Tarantino.
Sounds good, thanks...nm4bykn

Feb 27, 2002 4:46 PM
Blazing saddles, Young Frankenstein. Or Waynes World (hey, it has Tia Carerre in it, need I say more?!)Yes I know it isn't a Mel Brooks movie, but it's a classic.
Men Flick=Mel Brooks, Chick Flick=Woody Allen! nmMB1

Cool Hand Luke.

WOW what a great guy flick.

Chain gang, the car wash scene, eggs, George Kennedy was great, tasteful music and even though chicks dig him Paul sure can make a great guy flick!

"What we have here is a failure to communicate."
Great Movie.Len J

Another great flick.

The Usual Suspects - "Did you put that together yourself, Einstein?"

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - "Oy! Get your fingers out of my soup."

Snatch - "Protection from what? Zee Germans?"

The Big Lebowski - "You're entering a world of pain."

O' Brother, Where Art Thou - "Damn, we're in a tight spot!"

The Wild Bunch - William Holden is brilliant.

Spinal Tap - "It goes to eleven."

Butch Cassidy

Airplane - "Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?"

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - Steve Martin's monkey-boy bit is priceless.
