    Michael Clayton is simply outstanding. My testosterone level went up a couple notches after seeing that one. Terrific ending.

    Don't forget Three Kings, We Were Soldiers, The Constant Gardner, Master and Commander, Platoon, Scarface, Raging Bull, Chinatown and Wise Guys.

    Not to hijack the thread, but for anyone who enjoyed 'Ice Road Truckers' on History Channel last year, they've got a new one starting March 14 called 'Ax Men', about working in the logging industry.

    Hard to pick from what isn't up already.
    I would like to add;

    The Boondock Saints: (probably the best movie to never release in theatres because of political pressure because it is about vigilantes and it would have released right after the columbine shooting) It is also my wifes favorite "guy" movie.

    Platoon: First truly realistic Vietnam era movie I ever saw. Very grounding after growing up on Rambo.

    Everything else I saw listed already.

    The best of Sergio Leone: Once Upon A Time In The West, A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad And The Ugly.
    (extra bonus: watch Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" before "A Fistful of Dollars", to see how Leone copied Kurosawa scene-for-scene, except it was cowboys in the 18th Century instead of Samurai in the 16th. Same thing with "The Magnificent Seven" vs. The Seven Samurai".)

    Blade Runner.

    The Road Warrior.

    Rio Bravo. (John Wayne's best, IMO)

    Planet of the Apes (original).

    The Killer (John Woo 1989). Just about anything by John Woo is phenomenal.

    Brotherhood of the Wolf. (kind of obscure, but if you can find it, it's a great movie)

    Reservoir Dogs.

    Point Blank. (1967, with Lee Marvin. His best movie, IMO)

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Chow Yun Fat, Matrix-style martial arts, need I say more?

    Opps, sorry!

    All my fav's have been listed.
    Big second tho to ID's suggestion of Lonesome Dove. My all time favorite and a tremendous cast.
    Also liked Peckinpah's Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. The fight scene where Slim's gutshot and Dylan's singing Mama Take These Guns Off of Me (& acting as well) killed me. Silly I know.

    Do you mean "Twelve Monkeys", Jimbo?

    If you do, :thumb::thumb:iagree. Can't believe I left it out. Terry Gilliam is a mad genius.
