Best Guys Movie
« on: July 29, 2014, 08:40:37 PM »
the music question got me thinking.
what would be the best guys movie?

my two entries off the bat would be either:
Fight Club
The Big Lebowski
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Any John Wayne movie. Or Clint Eastwood except for the one where he sings.

an excellent list.

Kellys Heros might possibly be my favorite movie of all time.

War movie?  Toss up between Kelly's Heroes (unforgettable characters) and Blackhawk Down (personal connection to the story, and excellent portrayal of how US soldiers *actually* act).  The Great Escape and Where Eagles Dare are a slight cut below, to me.

Non-war movie?  I liked Fight Club better than Big Lebowski - more layers to it and I discover something new every time I watch it (like the single-frame Tyler appearances at the dr's office and support group early in the movie).  But I can admit that there are plenty of Dude fans out there who'll think I'm nuts.

Animal House has to be in there somewhere - maybe if we had a 'comedy' category.  Spinal Tap too, but I fear too many of the music-biz in-jokes get lost on people.

To me, to be a "guy movie" it's got to be something that a guy would stop and watch the rest of while channel surfing, but women just keep on walking thru the room without even glancing at the TV.  So as much as I love The Usual Suspects or Clerks or Fast Times At Ridgemont High, I couldn't put them on the list because I know too many chicks that would flop on the couch right next to you and start reciting lines.
