1. Fight Club
Simply said, it is truth hidden inside a story. We are a generation of men raised by women. Plus, it makes sense. Most men would kill to have something like that.
Men are genetically hardwired to be a little more agressive. If it bleeds, it can die.
Just. Watch. It. Then, you will understand what every man from the age of 2 to the age of 99 thinks about when he hears war.
Ingenious look at how mens heads work. Plus, it is actually cute without leaving the guy all depressed.
5. The Bourne Ultimatum
This is the modern version of James Bond. Highly reccomended for understanding the more hyper men.
See why Arnold used to be god for men. Plus, a good strong female lead does not have to mean all men in the movie have to be machos.
7. Rocky IV
Cover of Rocky IV
One trains with massive equipment, scientists, and punches at 75. One trains by running a lot and doing his job, and punches a 7. Guess who men root for? THE movie to understand why men like underdogs.
8. The Godfather
Each and every man has a place in his heart where there is the knowledge that a suit looks good, and that style and class are not neccesarily bad things. This movie is guaranteed to awaken them.
9. The seven Samurai
The basis of all western movies. More masculine then a lot of newer movies.
10. First blood
Classic. They drew first blood. The ultimate revenge flick for men. Men do not want to plan elaborate scemes for revenge. Men prefer points bits of wood.
11. Conan the Barbarian
Male, maler, Ahnold. Plus, it has swords, and axes, and muscles… Why every man likes medieval times. Bonus? Try to find out what Conan thinks is best in life, and you will discover why a lot of men think the way they do.
12. Planet of the Apes
Classic. This movie singlehandedly defended the beard.
13. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
14. Pulp Fiction
Most men would think of this as entertaining and fun. Like most of tarrantinos productions, it mixes strong male roles with strong female roles, and a heavy dose of foot fetish.
Cover of XXX [Blu-ray]
Instant classic. The new breed of super hero, the agent flick of the 20′th century. Plus, it has Rammstein.
16. Sin City
THE modern Film Noir. Violent, a lot of justified deaths, and some hot vixens. Most men cannot ask for more.
17. Full Metal Jacket
An amazing study of the classical male paradoxon. On the one hand, remain so you are comfortable with yourself. On the other hand, try to get respect from the outside by being the toughest most manliest guy alive. Instantly immortalized in the born to kill / peace sign helmet.
Also: Lots of male role modells, little sex, and a drill seargent.
18. Heavy Metal 2000
Cover of Heavy Metal 2000
Pure and simple genius. One of the first movies to feature rock in the soundtrack, thus making it immortal. Also, one of the first animated movies.
Simple as it is, mix Gadgets + Angelina Jolie + Classic plot, and you have a nerd classic. Hated, praised, and inspired an entire generation.
20. The Dark Knight
Two words. The Joker. Watch, listen, and learn.
21. Lord of the Rings
The embodiement of good versus evil. Truly fine cinema.
22. Silence of the Lambs
Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for not blinking in an entire movie, It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again, and a minor character who steals everyones show.
23. American Beauty
The movie for older men. Most can’t help to watch it with a knowing smile.
24. Reservoir Dogs
Cool. Famous. And dressed in suits. That is how men think of themself.
25. Once upon a time in America
Every man alive has similar dreams.
