favorite "guys" movie?
Posted by: lazydays
Date: September 08, 2011 09:32AM
I'm having a small group of guys over to my house for burgers, beer and cigars this friday night. I finally broke down and bought a projector so I could show movies out in the garage without stinking up the house with cigar smoke. Now I just need a good guys movie. Lots of action, skin doesn't hurt. :-) So throw your suggestions out there.

Btw, I invited fellow forum member ztirffritz but have not heard back from him. He lives just down the road from me. Shame shame shame.

ThenI bought the Vivitek D510 2600 Lumen SVGA HDMI 120Hz 3D-Ready Portable DLP Projector (White)
[www.amazon.com]
My criteria was cheap and bright.


In a moment of weakness I also purchased a refurb Optoma EP-PK-101 PICO Pocket Projector- 4 oz. for $95. I'm not sure what I will do with it but I've always wanted one. I'm probably gonna have to hide this stuff or my wife will skin me alive.

* Total Recall / Schwartzenegger-Stone
* Caddyshack / Murray-Dangerfield
* Blazing Saddles / Brooks-Wilder-Korman
* Waiting to Exhale**

Intriguing double feature for the agnostic set:
* Life of Brian / Monty Python
* The Invention of Lying / Ricky Gervais








**just kidding, total chick flick, your friends will talk about you behind your back

I second Braveheart..

A love story for men. Guy gets girl. Bad guys kill girl. Guy kills bad guys. Guy meets princess. Guy kills more bad guys. Guy nails princess. Guy kills more bad guys....

None of these are action flicks but for comedies, I second Beerfest, especially if you have not seen it before.

The Hangover (the first one) is very good, but most have seen it relatively recently in the last couple of years.

Others that may work:
Risky Business
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
Monty Python's Life of Brian or Holy Grail

Dear lord... how about some movie suggestions from the past decade?? LOL

Avatar.
Lotsa gun action and skin. Although it's blue alien skin.

Fast and the Furious. Uhmm.. any of them.
Lotsa fast car action and skin.

The Hangover.
If you want a comedy and skin. Hilarious Asian MALE skin.

It's cool to have a "no brainer" movie playing in the background. Where people can enjoy the movie at pretty much any point. Coming and going. In and out of conversations.

So the ending could have been better...

John Carpenter's "The Thing" never disappoints. If they have never seen the director's cut of "Aliens," then that's always a satisfying re-watch. A little know Vietnam movie (probably the first one) called "The Boys of Company C" is "fun" to watch. "Platoon," and the original "Apocalypse Now" are always crowd pleasers too.

Straw Dogs is an excellent film. Susan George is, ahem, unforgettable.

A good black comedy/action film from the Pulp Fiction-type genre is Thursday (1998).

A good 'ol war movie! thumbs up

I suggest "We Were Soldiers" with Mel Gibson. Lots of blood and gore, with plenty of action, though light on the female skin thing.

No, but it was implied.

Lots of action, skin doesn't hurt.

Maybe we should have asked what the median age of "guys" watching this movie is going to be.

The Great Escape (sorry, no female skin).



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I don't know what I'm doing from minute to minute and you want me to commit to a scheduled event DAYS in advance?!? I'll check with the boss to see if I'm allowed to come over.

Predator.

The only thing keeping it from being a perfect testosterone movie is the inclusion of the woman who has to be saved. Lame, predictable plot device. Guns, muscle, guns, explosions, and guns. Just awesome.

Ooo, and future politicians!

Let's see, ztirffritz will probably be on the younger side of the spectrum (30's I assume). Several guys in their late 30's to early 40's, and one guy in his 70's (he's bringing the chili).
