LOL, I only own three of those. (Office Space, The Usual Suspects, Fight Club)

They must mean "Straight Guy Movies".

Hmm...I have only seen a total of seven of those movies, of which I own 0 on DVD.


I feel like a failure as a man.

Pretty good list. Glad to see the Killer even made it, let alone get in the top 20.

With "The Three Stooges," I guess they're trying to cheat by encompassing all of the shorts into one entry.

I'm surprised Top Gun didn't make the list.

14/50 here. I plan to own around 10 or so more eventually.

What's next, Outside Magazine's "Top 50 Movies That Take Place Outside"?

Re: Top 50 Guy Movies As Rated By Mens Journal

That's actually a pretty damn good list, hard to argue with most of those. I would add nerdy guy movies like Blade Runner and maybe Miller's Crossing, but other than that, it's solid (I hate cool hand luke, though...)

I've seen them all and own:

47.) Dazed and Confused
45.) Office Space
44.) The French Connection
39.) The Untouchables
34.) The Good, The Bad Ugly
33.) Animal House
28.) The Big Lebowski
23.) The Wild Bunch
21.) The Usual Suspects
20.) Fight Club
18.) Goodfellas
17.) Apocalypse Now
13.) The Killer
11.) Full Metal Jacket
4.) Die Hard
3.) Scarface
2.) The Godfather
1.) Dirty Harry
