    Stand By Me

    Die Hard?

    😉

    But it has to be a war film really – Mosquito Squadron or Dam Busters…

    Heidi will tell you what to do from now on. She’s been one of our top agents in Bavaria since 1941 and…

    Swingers is a male chick flick (and one of my fave films).

    A few more modern suggestions than most of the above…

    Commando.
    Anything with Jason Statham (esp Transporter and Crank series).
    Any Hong Kong kung fu film.

    Brokeback Mountain?

    Quality. Now I have nothing against gay people but to have gay cowboys just isn’t fair on my childhood memories of cowboy and injun films.

    But lesbian sci-films are perfectly acceptable 😉

    Of course James Bond has to get a mention

    Sure you’ve seen them already but Captain Blood and Robin Hood are absolutely ripping. “You speak treason!” “Yes, fluently!”

    Where Eagles Dare

    Oh God, yes! An entire Allied front consisting of just Burton and Eastwood.

    *hums score.

    Kelly’s heroes – donald sutherland’s anachronistic hippy tank commander is a work of genious.

    never liked top gun, although i remember thinking that kenny loggin’s ‘danger zone’ was the coolest song ever at one time (hangs head in shame)

    Captain blood – seen it a long time ago.Isn’t there an actor in loads of those 50’s films not a lead but a character guy, he’s always a huge thug with a menacing leer, maybe it has to have him in to be a real contender

    Fight club. Even girls who love Brad are put off by the title alone when us boys know it has little to do with fighting.
    Possibly the matrix series.
    In fact, most science fiction (especially anything involving time travel) is avoided by girls because they have to ask too many questions. 😉

    Captain blood turns out to be 1935 – cue ‘they dont make em like they used to’ turns out its getting re made too – but will end up as pirates otc 4 i’m sure

    Saw The Vikings the other day and today it’s on the guardian around historical accuracy.

    It’s great and one of my all time favourites. worth seeing for the ridiculous drunken axe throwing bit at the start and the climbing up the axes bit at the end alone.

    Is it the most ‘boys own’ film ever? I mean ridiculous action scenes, absurd hellraiser type behaviour, sterotype bad guys, enemies becoming friends

    Recommend me some more classics – no rules i guess but i’m not looking for ‘die hard’ or stuff like that.

    Top Gun is way too girly for a boys own film surely? Poncy haircuts, wet music, etc.

    Is there a film about Shackleton? There should be. He kicked ass big time.

    Heroes of Telemark – where hollywood undersold what was actually a really amazing story.

    That’s a great film but it’s not really “boy’s own”. I mean, Top Gun doesn’t have any castration scenes, does it?

    Matrix 1 is a good shout apart from the poncy bit at the end where she wakes him up/brings him back to life.
    Stand by me is good maybe a bit too slushy tho
    Fight club defo
    I thought point break was ace when I saw it at the cinema, not seen it since and TBH I’m not sure it will have aged well.

    Star wars?
