Last Saturday I gave you my top 5 movies that I think every guy should watch. There is an honorable mention to my list. I like to watch these movies and I think every guy would benefit from watching them; they just aren’t in my top 5. But they are close. Now for the honorable mention.
The Bourne Identity: Some great fight scenes. I never get tired of watching the guy rappel through the window into Jason’s apartment. A great fight scene follows. Bourne #3 is pretty good too.
Jeremiah Johnson: there is just something about this movie that sticks with me. The outdoor scenes, surviving the elements, the love that develops for his woman and the boy. Then when he realizes the mistake he made and what happens next.
Defiance: based on a true story from World War II. I’ve watched this twice already. The endurance and will to survive among these people is amazing. It truly is an amazing test of will and love and hope.
Behind Enemy Lines: loosely based on a true story. A test of character and a will to survive and overcome obstacles. It gets your heart pumping.
Gran Torino: I’ve only seen it once but it sticks with you. The main character does a lot of changing even though he does not want to. It has some great subplots like, cross-cultural and inter-cultural communication and interaction; cross-generational interaction and an older man helping a boy become a man. There is some rough language in it, but the realism is something else. The ending will stick with you.
This is part of my honorable mention. I think every guy would like these movies. You may not learn something in each one, but they would hold your attention. But there are still some other movies out there that every man should watch. Hey guys, what about the 3 Stooges? Where do they rank or are they in a category all their own? I like Moe, Larry and Curley the best.
If you need to relax and you’re not into college or pro basketball these movies could be a good alternative. Relax, get a snack and have some fun. Then get back to taking care of business and live life to the fullest.
GRACE to you,
