MAN-LAW: MOVIES YOU MUST WATCH


Less than a week to go, and I’m not gonna lie, I haven’t been this excited to see a movie in a very long time. 

AMC is showing all of the Indiana Jones movies at select theaters this Saturday.  Seeing as I love the movies and only watched them on DVD/cable; I’m beyond excited to see such a kick ass franchise. 

I also realized that I haven’t done a Man-Law blog in a long time too.  So with a little inspiration from anticipation…here’s this week blog…

MAN-LAW:  MOVIES MEN MUST WATCH

We all have a particular movie collection in our heads. 

The ones that make you feel like a kid.
Ones that make you feel like you can single handedly take on an army.
And of course one that you’ll laugh your ass off.  Even if you’ve heard the jokes a million times.

So it got me thinking.  What are the movies that every man out there needs to see.  They don’t totally need to me super macho type movies.  At best, the list needs to be rounded off of top quality movies of every genre.  So here’s my list.  IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER of movies every guy must see…

-       THREE STOOGES (ANYTHING)
-       ABBOTT & COSTELLO (ANYTHING)
-       CASABLANCA
-       CITIZEN KANE
-       REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
-       SPARTACUS
-       JAMES BOND MOVIES
o  This is a tough one.  I guess I’d say ‘Dr. No’, but you can make a valid argument for any other type. Yes, the fact it’s Sean Connery has a lot to do with this pick.
-       EASY RIDER
-       THE GREEN MILE
-       PATTON
-       A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
-       DIRTY HARRY
