Quite simply, the 100 Top Movies Every Man Should See list has been created from my own experiences and from discussions with friends. Now with this being said this list is top heavy in three general areas.
I love science fiction movies. A good scifi movie with a well developed plot makes me a happy camper. I also love movies with great plot twists.
A movie that has a final scene that takes you on an unexpected journey or keeps you thinking days after you’ve seen it can’t be beat.
And lastly movies with great fight scenes or shoot ’em up scenes. These just can’t be gratuitous lop his head off for no reason just to show some gore type of movies, but the action must be integral to the plot and be so well shot that it leaves you speechless.
If you think a movie doesn’t belong, or have a suggestion to make the list better, let me know by posting a comment to this post on our Facebook page.
