Manly Movies

After sharing some of our favorite Valentine's Day movies last month, us Man Cavers want you to know what films we prefer.

Here are some manly movies, perfect for any occasion. 

Predator (David's choice)

It's man vs nature, man vs alien, and survival of the fittest.  This movie has rocked since the 80s.

Check out this brief scene that portrays the heart of the movie.  It's not graphic, but visceral.  Every man has felt this way at least once in his life.

The Dark Knight (Michael's choice)

Dark, intense and very well acted (except maybe for the crazy batman voice Christian Bale tries to pull off). Lots of gadgets and cool bat vehicles. This is the way batman was supposed to be, without a "BAM" bubble or "holy exploding shark, Batman" in sight.

Nacho Libre( Frank's choice)

No girl I know wants to sit and watch Jack Black in spandex slappin' corn out of people's hands. My wife put up with it just because she loves me. I actually haven't watched that movie in years, but I stand firm behind it being Anti Valentine.

Serenity (Jason's choice)

Excellent Sci-Fi Western based on the way-too-short TV series Firefly. It's one of those movies that I can watch over and over. Most certainly guaranteed to put that special someone in your life out of any sort of romantic mood.

Terminator 2(Dan's choice)

One of my all-time favorite movies. Watching it makes me feel like a kid again.  Check out this little-known deleted scene where the Terminator learns about the curious human habit known as smiling.


  1. Serenity! Yes! Wait, it's a manly movie? But I'm a Browncoat!

  2. No mention of Rocky? Rambo? Demolition Man? Where's the Sly love???

  3. I have never seen any of those movies. =p Sound like great guy choices, though.

  4. I'm not so sure Serenity is so manly. I love nearly anything Joss Whedon does, but so do scores of women. Serenity is one of my wife's favorite movies, right there with Sense and Sensibility.

    I'd like to nominate the movie Three Kings. Simple the best Iraq war movie.
    It Just Got Interesting

  5. Marsha, all Browncoats are welcome here!

    Tom, I agree with you 100% Sly would have made the list many times over had we included more flicks. I'm a fan of the Rambo movies. Please note, this post is not an exhaustive list.

    Paul, another great choice!

    Angie, if you like action, you'll like these movies.

    Brent, I've never seen Serenity myself, but it definitely hits the Sci-Fi factor, which normally has a larger male fanbase than other genres. I've never seen Three Kings either. Sounds good!

  6. Keep in mind, when you live with 5 women (my wife and 4 daughters), a movie like Serenity is *very* manly.
