This group is S-L-O-W, so let's pick up the pace and talk about a great, disturbing and flawed manly movie, Severed Ways.  Who's seen it and what did you think?

Defiance, anyone?

Just joined this group - I love movies. Today I saw "The Duellists". A great film, made in 1977, which I hadn't seen for about 20 years. I didn't really appreciate it the first time I saw it, but I'm a fan now. I heartily recommend this study of courage, obsession and honor.

I just read that there are going to be alot of celebrations of the book, To Kill A Mockingbird. Great male role model, Atticus and Greg Peck.

Clint is a must in any Morione film! (Lee Van Cleef also springs to mind).
Sam Elliott - Road House
De Niro - Pacino : Pretty Obvious Really
Swayze - Road House, Point Break
Gibson - The Patriot

I agree with the Don Draper recommendation. I would also say Morgan Freeman's character in Seven; he's got that hard-boiled detective going for him in that movie.

One of my all time favorite men in film is Serpico played Al Pacino. It's based on a real police officer who worked in New York and I think he's integrity personified. Here's the trailer.

As many at AoM know, I am big on the classic Westerns and the lessons found in many of them. Two quick ones come to mind from John Wayne: "The Cowboys", where boys go on a cattle drive and have to grow up quickly. Also, "Rio Bravo", where friends stick together in adversity (bonus: the town drunk gets a chance at self respect).

John Wayne
Lee Marvin
Charles Bronson
Clint Eastwood
Humphrey Bogart
Jimmy Stewart
Robert Shaw

From Here To Eternity (1953)
Military drama taking place just weeks before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Montgomery Clift- won't box for the regiment. So he is leaned upon and giving a rough time by his fellow soldiers.

Frank Sinatra - His buddy. Often drinks too much. Gets into some fights with Ernest Borgnine's character (EB still living in his early 90s)

Burt Lancaster -Smart and tough Capt. who has an affair with his CO's wife. Remember that iconic scene on the beach of him and Deborah Kerr making out?
