MOVIES FOR MEN

 

Latest update: 8 December 2014

 

Yes, I've updated the site after more than a year. Time flies and all that sort of thing. Anyway, new reviews are posted, and more to come. Also, some of the links have yet to be made, so use the index to the left to navigate if you run into a snag.


So what’s the point of this website? It’s to provide reviews of movies which reinforce a positive view of men. This can be a rare enough commodity given today's anti-culture. And just as critically, movies which get people thinking about things.                                   

 

I had a couple of criteria for selecting these movies. One was to get at something deeper which defines both manhood and humanity. I avoided films which promoted mindless violence and self-destructive heroics, or descend into female bashing. Insofar as many of these films do involve violence, it is as a means to a higher end.

 

Another thing was to look at how men have acted historically, and then use that as an insporation for today's struggles. Make of all this what you will.

 

Thanks to DVDs, digital downloads and videotape, most of these movies are available. They may even be worth watching multiple times.

 

I’ll be updating this site now and then. As usual, a website is always under construction.

 

For no particular reason, I arranged most of the reviews within each category in chronological order, i.e., when the movies’ events supposedly take place. I also have a couple of sections with shorter reviews. So without further ado…
