Top 10 Man DVD's

Time to appreciate the best, cheers to Fatso.co.nz for compiling - agree/disagree let fire in the comments below.

ROAD HOUSE
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5221/5578982840_aeb9273e59_o.jpgNever underestimate Dalton (Patrick Swayze), a brawny bouncer and expert martial artist who also happens to hold an NYU degree in philosophy. When he's hired to police a rowdy bar in the Midwest and falls in love with Doc (Kelly Lynch), he angers her mean ex-boyfriend Wesley (Ben Gazzara), who vows to win her back.

 

 


THE HANGOVER
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5091/5578397899_e73008c1d9_o.jpgWhen three friends (Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper) finally come to after a raucous night of bachelor-party revelry, they find a baby in the closet and a tiger in the bathroom. But they can't seem to locate their best friend, Doug (Justin Bartha) -- who's supposed to be tying the knot. Launching a frantic search for Doug, the trio perseveres through a nasty hangover to try to make it to the church on time in this Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy.



THE WARRIORS
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5251/5578397853_07cb4d2a90_o.jpgA prominent New York City gang leader named Cyrus (Roger Hill) wants to wage an all-out battle against the police, and as part of his strategy he calls upon Gotham's gangs to set aside their turf wars and come together at a summit. At the meeting, a rival leader kills Cyrus, but a Coney Island gang called the Warriors is wrongly blamed for Cyrus' death. Before you know it, the cops and every gangbanger in town is hot on the Warriors' trail.

 


TOP GUN
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5029/5578397873_dfb917e38d_o.jpgSatisfy your need for speed and launch your home theater into the jet-propelled world of the U.S. Navy's best aviators. Tom Cruise plays Maverick, who has to struggle to control himself, responsibility and a steamy love affair (with Kelly McGillis) while competing at the Navy's fighter-weapons school, better known as Top Gun.

 


 
ROCKY
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5148/5578982876_40b8632e30_o.jpgWhen world heavyweight boxing champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) wants to give an unknown fighter a shot at the title as a publicity stunt, his handlers pick palooka Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), an uneducated collector for a Philadelphia loan shark. Gritty, grim and epic, this crowd-pleasing film won the 1976 Best Picture Oscar thanks to John G. Avildsen's solid direction and Stallone's root-for-the-underdog script.

 


RESERVOIR DOGS
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5228/5578397837_6c0f52e1d4_o.jpgQuentin Tarantino's directorial debut is raw, violent, often mimicked -- and unforgettable. A botched robbery indicates a police informant, and the pressure mounts in the aftermath at a warehouse. Crime begets violence as the survivors -- veteran Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), newcomer Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), psychopathic parolee Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), bickering weasel Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) and Nice Guy Eddie (Chris Penn) -- unravel.



FIGHT CLUB
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5227/5578982818_7fe83ab6b2_o.jpgAn insomniac corporate drone (Edward Norton) meets roguish rebel Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), and together they form a cathartic but brutal underground society in which men fight each other freely in director David Fincher's sharp Oscar-nominated flick. But the line between reality and sleepless haze begins to blur when propagandist Durden transforms Fight Club from a group of non-conformists into a nihilistic cult.

 

 
 
THE WILD BUNCH
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5144/5578397763_ca3aa82621_o.jpgDirector Sam Peckinpah's brilliant 1969 Western epic tells the story of a bunch of aging outlaws, led by Pike Bishop (William Holden), whose botched plans to pull off one last job forces them to collude with a crooked Mexican general (Emilio Fernández) -- leading to ugly bloodshed.

 

 

 
THE TERMINATOR
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5180/5578397803_9da164c688_o.jpgIn the post-apocalyptic future, reigning tyrannical supercomputers teleport a cyborg assassin known as the "Terminator" (Arnold Schwarzenegger) back to 1984 to snuff Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), whose unborn son is destined to lead insurgents against 21st century mechanical hegemony. Meanwhile, the human-resistance movement dispatches a lone warrior (Michael Biehn) to safeguard Sarah. Can he stop the virtually indestructible killing machine?


 
 
THE BIG LEBOWSKI
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5101/5578397737_8a56876ee0_o.jpgSlacker Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) gets involved in a gargantuan mess of events when he's mistaken for another man named Lebowski, whose wife has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. All the while, Dude's friend, Walter (John Goodman), stirs the pot.  Brothers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen write and direct this cult comedy classic that also stars Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and John Turturro.

    Ive probably seen not even a quarter of these movies but ive seen quite afew of the trailers and some of the movies look great I wouldnt mind giving them a watch, Speaking of fatso ive just signed up so I think afew of these will be my next movie picks :)
    • charmed says
      The Warriors was an utimate cult classic, orginally an R18 shows how movies have changed during the years as this movie is actually pretty tame and would probably be an M on todays standards. Terminator is a classic that will never lose its appeal
    • Aidan says
      I've heard of all of them, but only seen 6, (Fight Club, The hangover, and The Big Lebowski, The Terminator, Rocky and Top Gun). In order of preference best to worst. Whilst Rocky and Top Gun were good in their time i believe that they have, to some extent, become almost more "classics" than movies i would rate highly. And it is tough when making top 10 lists but i'm pretty sure there are movies that would suit the list better.

      I liked fight club for being a bit different and thought provoking. Reservoir Dogs for the Tarantino touch (tTt!).
    • There are some big calls in there, and considering how many great movies come out every year I am rather surprised at their list. Guess everyone's Top 10 is gonna be different though, but Patrick Swayze, really?
    • Kiwi Gas says
      The Hangover is deserving of a top ten spot; but no place for 'Get Him to the Greek'?
    • nickpow says
      The HangOver is a good movie....but Goonies is bettera!
    • twist55 says
      Road house is awesome. He could kick a tigers teeth out!
    • Phill says
      Top ten Man DVDs I'm not sure this is the right list. There is no James Bond no Clint Eastwood, no John Wayne, no Harrison Ford all mens' men. Not to mention the older classics Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Marlon Brando, James Dean, James Cagney. We might need a new definition of a Man movie or someone making a list who has seen a few movies maybe LOL :)
    • A good list for some but like everything, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
      therefore, I will let you in on my favorite ten movies for guys..

      Die Hard.
      Goodfellas
      Rocky 3
      Commando
      Anchorman
      Terminator
      The good the bad and the ugly
      In Hell
      Felon
      Donnie Brasco


    • thochaos says
      I've only seen half of those movies so I can't comment on all of them, but The Big Lebowski was so boring, I fell asleep twice!
      The Hangover, Reservoir Dogs and Fight Club all belong on this list, but if I was going to pick an Arnie movie I'd go with either Commando (my favourite) or Predator.
      And no Die Hard? Come on!
