Apologies To The Women
Sorry, gals, but we just love a LOT of movies that you all find revolting, boring or just downright stupid. The fact that you put up with our BS for all these years just tells you how much we appreciate and love you all. However, like you, we just want to share our favourite things with you, too. So please bear with us through life, and please bear with this list of potential movies that you can enjoy with your man.
Like with the other listing, there will be spoilers. If you don't wish to read those, I will be providing the list right here before we get into them. Again, they will be in no actual particular order.
The Expendables 1 & 2 (Third installment coming soon)
Sorry ladies, but you already knew this was going to be here. These are the mother of all action movies in history. Yes, it's a lot of guns, and a lot of guys killing each other. This contemporary remake of an old TV classic has its own spin from the original, and features all of action's biggest names/heartthrobs. Admit it, at one time in your life, you fawned over at least half of the men in these movies, if not still.
The Expendables movies follow Barney Ross (Stallone) and his group of freelance mercenaries. In the movies, they take on two government contracts from their CIA contact, Church (Bruce Willis). These escapades lead from overthrowing a dictatorship in South America, to stopping a world-renowned terrorist named Vilaine (Jean-Claude Van Damm).
On their missions, they even come across some of their old comrades like Trench Mouse (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Booker (Chuck Norris).
Despite being big blast action movies, there are bits of romance here and there as well as a little bit of philosophy and drama from Tool (Mickey Rourke). Granted, it's not the drama you ladies are used to, but hey, a tough killer opening up and crying. I've heard it's quite attractive (or "cute") for some women.
Highly recommended, and will definitely remind (or tell) your man that you are a keeper.
V For Vendetta
Arguably one of Natalie Portman's better works despite the list of mostly British actors/actresses. Also, it's one of Hugo Weaving's best works of all time. For those of you who do not know who he is, Hugo is best known for his role as Agent Smith from the Matrix Trilogy, Elrond in all the Lord of the Rings movies, the voice of Megatron in the Transformers Trilogy and as Johann Schmidt (The Red Skull) in Captain America: The First Avenger. Also included in the movie is the whit and humor of top performer, Stephen Fry. While the movie takes place in London, and only 2 cast members with big names in America, this movie is exceptionally well written with situations relateable for anyone from the States. This script makes a great balance between drama and action, with a plentiful side of tragic romance.
V For Vendetta follows the stories of Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman) and the masked vigilante, V (Hugo Weaving). V was the accidental result of one of the Nazi-like British government's biochemical researches. He runs around with a Guy Faux mask, taking down the corrupted souls of the new British government. Evey Hammond is an unfortunate bottom-line employee for the only news station (government controlled) in London. Even more unfortunate is her run-in with V, and the misunderstanding that was to follow that would wrap her in the middle of the war between the tyrannical government and their "Frankenstein" creation.
While there's not much more to say about the story, it is a wonderful story for you couples out there. Moreover, a really good cuddling movie. Highly recommended.
Yes, ladies, it is a zombie movie. No, it's not a horror movie. While it is about zombies with plenty of guns blazing, this movie is mainly a comedy. And if that's not enough to convince you, I only have 2 words that will change your mind. Woody Harrelson. Need I say more? If so, how about if I said that this film is the first of only two movies Jesse Eisenberg stars in that's actually good? (Rio and Rio 2 don't count, and whoever casted him for Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie is an idiot) Even the legendary Bill Murray makes and appearance as himself. But I promise you this, ladies: You will laugh from the humor, you will cry from the drama, but for 90% of the movie, you will be laughing.
This movie follows the highly phobic Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) as he walks you through his life in the apocalyptic hellhole of an Earth that he has called Zombieland.In his travels, he joins up with badass Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) for what was only supposed to be a temporary partnership. However, this became a more permanent alliance as their adventure is turned upside down by Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), and end up working together with them. The movie then goes through their exploits together as their friendship grows and they find themselves becoming one big, screwed up family.
Very highly recommended. Also a great cuddling film, especially if you jump at the 3 times there's actually something that tries to give a small "shock" to the audience.
That big, loveable goof.
The Boondock Saints I & II
By far, a favourite for both men and women (obviously, more men than women). These beautiful works of art directed by Troy Duffy are truly worth spending hour after hour watching and rewatching. If the Irish talk, action, constant gratuitous language and action/gag humor don't get you, then maybe the fact that Norman Reedus is one of the stars can get your attention. We guys all know he's become quite the heart-throb to you ladies in the last few years since the release of The Walking Dead series.
These movies follow brothers, Connor and Murphy McManus (Sean Patrick Flannery & Norman Reedus) as they heed "God's Calling" to rid Boston of the evil and corrupting mafia and crime lords. Beyond this basic premise, this movie is all about the journey. While the story is definitely more in-depth, I definitely won't deprive you of the juicy details and not waste your time reading the long explanations. In addition to this vigilantism, they are constantly chased by FBI operatives who end up seeing things their way and helping out the brothers. In the first movie, you have the confused but headstrong Agent Paul Smecker (Willem Defoe) and then the sassy badass, Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz).
Also, don't worry, ladies. This is not all serious. There are plenty of moments that will make you laugh.
Very highly recommended and a must-have. Great movie to share your man's happy awe moments, and also enjoy some great laughs.
Kick-Ass / Kick-Ass 2
One of the more "realistic" hero movies in circulation. While it is still a fiction, it's definitely a great All-round action-comedy. While Nicholas Cage's acting is at its worst in the first movie, the whole film is more than redeemed by Cloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. You definitely don't want to miss these movies.
The story of both movies follows High School loser, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), as he transforms from everyday loser to a brave hero. Unlike other hero movies, this doesn't go well the first or second try. In fact, his first attempt landed him in the hospital. He was first stabbed and then hit by a car (the car was an accident). His bones are then all plated with metal, and he is no longer able to feel pain. Long story short, he starts making a name for himself, and ends up teaming up with Hit Girl (Cloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Cage). However, it leads down a road of fighting, murder, and the dead of Big Daddy (and his poor acting) in the first movie. The 2nd movie talks of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl inspiring many other ordinary people into being heroes. But this also results in the villains, particularly the mafia son, Chris D'Amiko (Christopher Plasse), to become super villains. This emotionally unstable mob child went from doing hero recon in movie 1 as The Red Mist, to becoming The Motherfucker (yes, that is his villain name that he chose for himself).
Highly recommended. Good cuddling movie. There's a couple risque moments that could potentially leave an awkward moment for couples that just started dating. It's more for the more intimate couples.
The 2nd of Simon Pegg's "Comedy Trilogy" movies, but the best of all of his movies. While Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are mainly British stars, some may remember Simon Pegg from Mission Impossible II, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the two new Star Trek Movies. On top of that, there's even a good co-starring of Timothy Dalton.and a cameo part for Bill Nighly. For those of you who have seen (or want to see) the other two movies in Simon's "Trilogy" will get more out of this as there are inside references that go back and forth between these movies.
(Simon Pegg's "Comedy Trilogy" comprises of the following 3 movies, in order: Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End.)
Hot Fuzz follows London's finest policeman, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg), as he is outcast to the police station of a little country town called Sandford in Gloucestershire by the London Police due to him making them all look bad. This seemingly perfect village, however, hid a terrible secret. During Nicholas' stay at the village, there arose a high number of "accidents" that he discovered were actually murders. What's more perplexing, is that there was no actual hidden agenda. Every murder made in this village was to remove an imperfection that would rob the place of The Best Village Of The Year Award, which they have won over 20 times in a row. Nicholas then bands together with Danny (Nick Frost) to go against the village heads who have been committing heinous murders like those in the movie for over 20 years.
Highly recommended. Good for any couples, and any kind of date. You'll both laugh your socks off.
The Hangover Trilogy
Yes, it's a man's potty humor movie, but it's not all that bad, even for women. And there's really only 1 real reason to watch these movies, Zach Galifianakis. While it is a great work between him, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong, Zach is the biggest shining star in these gut-busting comedies. Your man will love you for wanting to watch these with him. But fair warning, the amusement does slightly drop with the 3rd installment, but just slightly.
The Hangover movies follow the "Wolf Pack" made up of Playboy Phil (Bradley Cooper), Proud Dentist Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zach). These three end up in crazy situations that involve an accidental consumption of drugs, and an over consumption of alcohol. These crazy escapades start in Vegas, then Bangkok and back to Vegas again. All the while, they are pulled into even crazier situations with the internationally wanted and mentally unstable criminal, Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). However, the movies don't even end with the credits. There are also the pictures of the moments of their adventures that they never remembered at the end of each movie. Also, at the end of the 3rd, there's a post-credits scene that will make you laugh so hard, you might just piss your panties.
Very highly recommended. Better for closer couples. Can be for starting couples, but not as recommended.
That Cuddle-Bear Of Comedy
The Dark Knight Trilogy
Okay, it's Batman, but it's Batman done better. These movies are a lot of action, a lot of drama, and a lot of Christian Bale. Unlike all of the previous Batman movies in existence, the Christian Bale Dark Knight Trilogy is not as high tech and futuristic. In fact, the writers made sure to freshen the movie up by showing a more realistic look at the development and evolution of Batman. And here's a nice little fact: The new Batmobile (aka The Tumbler) is an actual working vehicle.
Through these movies, we watch as Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) moves from an everyday, tormented billionaire to the high tech vigilante we all know an love. He is joined by Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman), his butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Cane) and his company's forgotten R&D worker, Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman). We follow Bruce's struggle to save Gotham from Raz Al-Ghul (Liam Neeson), to The Joker (Heath Ledger) & Two Face (Aaron Eckhart) and finally Bane (Tom Hardy).
Highly recommended. Great for any couples. The tragic drama Bruce Wayne has with Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) will tug at any woman's heart strings.
Classical vampires vs. werewolves with a very modern twist and delivery. Includes parts by very big Hollywood names, including Bill Nighly and Michael Sheen. Kate Beckinsale appeals to both men and women in her role as Selene, the gun-toting badass female vampire. It comes complete with little fun ideas everyone has had at one point in time for what would happen if you could mixed a werewolf and a vampire.
The four movies follow the life of Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she tells you her tale of the many centuries of the war between Vampires and Lycans (aka werewolves). In their pursuit of power, Lycans finally came up with a technique to create a vampire/lycan hybrid that would tip the scales of the war. In the process of fighting off their long-sworn enemies, Selene not only ends up helping in this endeavor, but she also falls in love with the hybrid, and takes up arms against her own faction, having discovered their dark secrets that made them not so good as she had always been led to believe. This war then takes to a higher plane as it evolves to digging up ancient powers, and stronger weapons. While the movies aren't 100% in chronological order, the stories themselves more than make up for it.
Very highly recommended. Not for non-intimate couples. There are intimate scenes in 2 of the movies which can lead to an awkward moment for newer couples.
Anything With Robert Downey Jr.

Dale Anderson from The High Seas on December 19, 2017:
This was a good idea for an article for a few reasons. It gives the couple a mechanism for agreeing on what to watch, but, more importantly, it gives them a topic of discussion and debate. This article will keep me and the missus bantering for some time.
Luci from Oregon on June 03, 2014:
I've seen a few of these movies and I agree. They are great "guy movies" that girls also enjoy. In fact, V for Vendetta is probably one of my "top ten favorite movies"
Joe from north miami FL on June 02, 2014:
great movie choice enjoyed reading your hub
Maximum A on June 02, 2014:
It's okay, Shinzuu, I'm a gal and I love movies like these, too. Zombieland was AWESOME!! It's probably the only zombie movie I saw where I whooped, cheered, and celebrated. The Expendables is cool, too. It's like every action-movie fan's fantasy (like, I can imagine my dad and grandpa going like "Yeah!" every time an action star makes an appearance, especially in the 2nd movie). Awesome hub! :)
Bernadyn from Jacksonville, Florida on May 30, 2014:
I did enjoy Boondock Saints - nice list, agree with most and haven't seen some of them but now I know which ones I can take a chance at, thanks. :)
dailytop10 from Davao City on May 27, 2014:
Cool list! I've seen all the movies you mentioned aside from the Boondock Saints. Thank you for sharing.
