So gentlemen, what the manliest movie you've ever seen (also the manliest scenes) and what makes them manly to you?
The movie that comes to mind for me right now is a movie called Sin Nombre. It's a spanish language film about a gang member who tries to escape his gang and help this young woman he meets get to America. It's ultimately a tale of sacrifice.
Check out The Man who Shot Liberty Valance. It juxtaposes both the Man of Action and the Man of Reason. Or The Longest Day, especially the ascent of Point du Hoc and the assault on the German Lines at Omaha Beach. Or Glory, and to list the reasons I consider it manly would be to write the screenplay.
Agreed. I have tried to base my leadership style on Major Richard Winters (the on-screen version anyway - I'm sure there was some artistic licence involved). I was more than a little sad when he died last year.
If you haven't yet read Dick Winters' book you should.
Dick Winters - hahahaha
Major Richard D Winters, Officer Commanding Company E, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne, US Army during WWII, from the landings in Normandy through the German surrender, including surviving and keeping his command while being surrounded by the Wehrmacht in Bastogne France during the Battle of the Bulge. Distinguished Service Cross, Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
Dick Winters crapped bigger than you.
Hey, that's fine and all but a man needs a sense of humor or to change his name to Richard.
And the problem with the name "Richard" is what?
He is making fun of the name "Dick" because of the phallus connotation.
If my name were "Brandon" I'd probably shut the fuck up about making fun of men's names.
Further, he is making fun of one of the most honorable and decent individuals ever to put on the US Uniform, who served with exemplary distinction in the largest war of the 20th century, commanded men through one of that conflict's most harrowing battles and lived to tell about it to his children and grandchildren.
