In your opinion, what is the best, most goddamned manly movie ever made in the history of movies?

My personal favorite goes to "Steel Dawn", with Patrick Swayze playing this bad-ass desert-wandering sword fighter, who goes into this town and saves it by beating up a shit ton of evil bandit guys who want to take all the water. I not only consider it a truly "manly" movie, but also one of the best movies from the 80's, and perhaps of all time. It's pretty darn good in my personal opinion, even though not many people seem to know about it.

What are your guys' favs?

There a lot out there to choose from. I'd say The Devil's Brigade closely followed by The Great Escape and The Longest Day. Yes they are all WW2 movies but it wasn't called the greatest generation for nothing!  Also, they are real folks performing real heroics.

Lonesome Dove.....

This movie. And Band of Brothers

The Warriors, Fight Club, Gallipoli, Predator.

A Man for All Seasons. A man stands by his principals until the end, no matter what the cost.

Um, Thomas More tortured men for owning a bible in their own language. Playwright Bolt left that part out. Not manly.

Tin Men!  Danny DeVito and Richard Dreyfus.  Some funny, funny guy stuff!  Just the best!

Tombstone is pretty badass. There certainly are a whole shitbag of movies that one can choose, that is for sure. I'm a little surprised though that no one mentioned movies by renowned ass kickers such as Van Damme, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, etc. Bloodsport is also one of my favs, depending on the day, I may actually give the title of the manliest movie ever made to Bloodsport, over Steel Dawn. But this is like picking between chocolate ice cream and pineapple smoothie, both are real damn good.

Plus... Hell in the Pacific has Toshirô Mifune!

Jonas, I too am a big Lee Marvin fan, I love the movie "Death Hunt" with him and Charles Bronson. I loved it when rookie mountie Andrew Stevens asks him, where's headquarters? Lee Marvin replies, "where ever I'm standin". I don't know why, but I got a big kick outta that one.
I have to say that my favorite manly movie would have to be a toss up between either "Objective Burma" or "Death Hunt". I love 'em both-
Also being a big submarine fan, I love "Destination Tokyo" and "Run Silent-Run Deep"and "Submarine Seahawk"-------gp100man

I'll second Lonesome Dove

Two movies come to mind if you really want to understand the meaning of "honor," "loyalty," and the "warrior code." They are "Gettysburg" and "The Last Samurai."
