Yup, that's a good one. The Friedkin remake isn't bad, either.

That list is awful.


Where is the Arnold? Where are the Death Wish sequels?

Recipe for the Ultimate Guy Movie:

+ Al Pacino as lead
+ Quentin Tarantino as screenwriter
+ Sergio Leone as director
+ revenge as the theme
+ war as the setting

Mix with beer and serve.

Um... no.

Pacino's the weak link. He's been a cartoon since Scarface. You need a lead like Coburn, McQueen, Bronson, Eastwood.
EDIT: Also, not everybody enjoys Tarantino (I happen to, but I know many who don't). A safer bet would be Rodriquez (Planet Terror is the acme of guy-ness).

Jenkins, people who dislike Tarantino are not likely to care for Rodriguez either. ::) Can't we have Milius or Schraeder as Panache suggests?

Yeah, Pacino wouldn't work in a GG movie.


Speaking of GG movies; I'm gonna watch TGE right now.

Sure, but the general consensus on Grindhouse (not shared by me, mind) was that PT was good but DP tanked, pulled under by a lot of extraneous verbiage. Milius can be good (Schraeder? name me a good Schraeder-directed film), but better track records are held by Hawks, Anthony Mann, John Sturges and especially Robert Aldrich. Aldrich even more than the others tends to make movies guys really go for that leave women cold (DD being the ultimate example of that, but also, I submit, Vera Cruz, Attack, Emperor of the North Pole, The Longest Yard, The Choirboys). Hey, notice what these last 4 directors (plus Peckinpah) have in common? They're all dead. Candy Ass Nation waited them out, then made sure there were none to succeed them. The anti-testosterone crowd have decreed that Steven Soderbergh and Wes Anderson are who we should be watching now. Fanboys and geeks. Thank God for the rain to wash the trash off the sidewalk.

We're talking about screenwriting, Jenkins, screenwriting. Not direction. Pay attention.

Oops, my bad. So you agree that directors are not the authors of their films?

Incidently, guys like to drink beer, not necessarily watch other guys drink beer. Maybe you can get the occasional beer joke into the movie (along the lines of "Beer?"/"Beer"), but otherwise the beer action is gonna be limited to a sphere immediately outside the film. And reversing cars IS cool, but generally any good car chase or stunt with cars is appreciated, especially when a cool car is involved.

There's nothing philosophical going here, Jinkies. I'm just referring to this post by Panache:

Quote
Bronson-Mifune-Eastwood-Segal-Coburn-Van Cleef-Lee-Chan-Stallone-Shwatznegger star

Milius-Schrader-Mamet-Hemingway write

Leone-Pecknpah-Seigel-Aldrich direct

It's perfect timing, large one...

If I were the chick to decide these would go through the window, after the Austrian officials in Prague defenestration of 1618; or even better those Czech ones of 1419. ::)
Instead, I'd put there Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes. I'm watching the Granada series now. (In the Blue Carbuncle, he and Watson were to have beer, but then Holmes rushed from the pub after the track, and Watson seemed to be offended, because he had to leave the beer behind. ;D)

Did someone mention Cold War thrillers? They kinda tend to be GG movies.

Funnily enough, I watched "The Second Stain" just the other night (hey, marmota, which Watson do you like better, Burke or Hardwick?). I think what you're pointing to isn't so much the Sherlock Holmes series in particular, but series television generally. Chicks love seeing their favorite characters coming around every week or so. Makes 'em feel like they're popular, that they've got lots of friends. Men instinctively know this, which is why they despise series TV (but enjoy one-off things like sporting events, movies-of-the-week, etc.). TV . . . it's definitely for girls.

You might be right... although I think you're going too far with "Makes 'em feel like they're popular, that they've got lots of friends." It doesn't feel quite right to me. The only thing about it might be they they like chatting about it with their real life friends, and that might make them feel they have lots of friends...

I prefer Burke.
