 It's not a bad list overall, but I do question 300 as the No. 1 pick.  The Blues Brothers is one of my favorites so I like that choice over Animal House, and I like DJ's suggestion for at least one Peckinpah movie.  That's all that he made, guy movies!  And I'm not a huge fan of Tarantino, but how about Reservoir Dogs?  Or for an over-the-top action, Desperado?  Gunfights and Salma Hayek topless, can't go wrong!

I know a lot of chicks who love 300 and a lot of guys who hate it.  Something to do with naked male torsos, jealousy and some chicks not understanding implausibility and CGI. 

That's a good point; there are chick gamers, aren't there? Seems like at least some might enjoy 300 quite a bit.

I can't make a top 10 right now but at least these would be on my list:

7.Die Hard
6.OUATIA
5.Full Metal Jacket
4.T2
3.Goodfellas
2.The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
1.Pulp Fiction
Yeah, that's not a bad list. I'd put something in place of Die Hard, though, it has too long a set-up and all that B.S. with his ex-wife is annoying. T2, to my mind, doesn't qualify; it has a strong female lead, and even though Linda Hamilton plays it like she's a man, her appeal is to women viewers. Then there's the love story, which barely hangs over from T1, but it's still there. No, if I'm choosing a flick with Arnie, it's gotta be Predator.

Both Terminators kick Predator's scrawny ass, as does Die Hard. Quite frankly, I could care if the icky cootie girls like it. Cheesy

Excellent, Joe. Yes, by all means, T&L, and very, very yes, John Carpenter's The Thing.

Grogs, I think you're missing the point here. The films we're talking about appeal to guys and repel girls. If that's not how ya wanna play, start a list in another thread.

I think Cool Hand Luke would be one of mine.  Another Boorman pic would be DeliveranceThe Magnificent Seven could be considered.

The Magnificent Seven could be considered. 
With the love story and the cute little kids flitting about Bronson? C'mon, this is practically a chick flick.

The Train is a pretty good candidate, especially with all those practical sfx (You Will Believe That A Rail Yard Can Explode!). I like Von Ryan's Express a lot, and The Sand Pebbles is very good. I guess I like it when the hero goes out in a blaze of glory. Hey, McQueen films in general (Bullitt, Junior Bonner, Le Mans) but Papillon in particular would seem to belong in the category. Too bad Steve didn't get to make Butch Cassidy with Newman, that would have been the greatest.

Looking further afield, maybe also The Wages of Fear. . .

hehehehe....McQueen, Bronson, Coburn and Wallach in a chick flick.  You're not playing around.  O-kay, O-Kay...no side dishes.
You would have to throw out the writer's selection of The Searchers for similar reasons.......

Well, as you may know, I'm not a fan of The Searchers so I'd be happy to let that one go. And anyway, the Jeffery Hunter/Vera Miles thing spoils it as a guy's Guy Movie anyway.

 I guess I just forgot this one, but how about The Professionals?  Any movie with Lancaster, Marvin, Ryan, Strode, and Palance and CC bouncing around the Mexican desert in next to nothing is definitely a guy's movie. 

 The only other one I've been able to come up with is Kelly's Heroes, one of my favorites and a top 10 pick for me in general.  Can't go wrong with Clint, Savalas, Sutherland and Rickles with a great supporting cast.

What about North by Northwest? i figure at least one hitchcock film should be up there and IMO NBNW is hitchcock's manliest. Sure there's romance and such but considering the action sequences and Cary Grant's character, this movie just screams guy flick to me  Smiley.

Hitchcock films are incredibly popular with chicks.
