Must see films for blokey blokes who like being blokes
When you’ve (shamefully) watched one too many episodes of The Bachelor and need to feel like a man again, we suggest kicking back and watching true manliness unfold before you. To celebrate the release of new man-flick 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Banghazi on February 25, we have created this essential, must-watch list of movies for men.
An American Ambassador is killed during an attack at a U.S. compound in Libya as a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos. This film has everything you need: explosions, bravery and a true story to boot!
We’ll probably never be as suave or witty as Tony Stark, but we sure can dream! Watch Iron Man for your dose of super-hero manliness and crime-fighting goodness; not to mention that he *almost* always gets the girl.
You won’t get a better manly master than Don Vito Corleone. People fear and respect him because he runs the most violent family business of all time. We think it’s best to just watch the film than aspire to be him…
Don’t bother lying, you wanted to be a part of the Ghostbusters squad in the 80s. Watch this film for peak nostalgia and quality wise cracks from iconic Bill Murray himself.
Shaun of the Dead
Now, we’ve all wondered what will happen when the world hits the fan and the apocalypse begins. Hell, some of us even have a plan and canned food hidden under their bed. Shaun of the Dead is a prime example of what NOT to do and screams hilarity that can only be rated very Simon Pegg.
Every man should aspire to be Ron Burgundy because despite his misogyny and incorrect knowledge of what San Francisco means, he plays a mean jazz flute. Suave, manly and knows how to rock a moustache, Anchorman is, and will always be, a hilarious watch.
Men everywhere flocked to watch Terminator, but why? Because it was the most ground-breaking film for its time, with cyborgs, special effects and Arnold Schwarzenegger: the original action doll. Iconic. That’s all we can say.
While The Shining is far from an easy, fun watch for a Friday night, it is a must-see for men everywhere to learn how to not act when faced with all work and no play. We repeat, definitely do not become crazed Jack Nicholson chasing his wife with an axe, ok?
Easily one of the best sci-fi/horror films ever made, Alien makes this list because it kept us up, under the covers when we were young and had a crush on Sigourney Weaver.
Everyone that watches Fight Club immediately wants to create one but, you know, without all the weirdness which is most of the movie. There’s something inherently manly about the raw aggression of violence, with rules of course.
