I would nominate The Road, harrowing stuff but very powerful.

I have not seen the movie but have read the book and its about as unmanly as you can get.  He teaches his son the first response to every difficult situation is to prepare for suicide.

I agree.  I think his list has some movies men may like, but aren't exactly good examples of manliness.  I love Strange Brew but would not consider it a manly movie.

Predator, Conan, Gladiator

Zulu, Glory, Good Night and Good Luck,
