Need non-chick flick suggestions
Edited on Wed Mar-28-07 09:58 AM by taterguy
My wife is going out of town for a few days and turning over the Blockbuster cue to me. I want mindless entertainment. I want explosions, car/boat chases and cheap thrills. If it has a plot I want it to be optional.

Here are some things I like:

Baa Baa Black Sheep, the old TV show about Corsair pilots in World War II.

Three Kings

The Hunger, or any other movie with women as attractive as Catherine Denuve and Susan Sarandon getting it on

The Rock, the movie, not the wrestler

Help me pollute my mind

5. James Bond flicks
Explosions, men shooting at each other, men patronizing women,.... all the elements of mind pollution.

6. This may be one post that actually would get more informed responses at Freeperville.
:) No offense. I get in those moods, too. Rarely, but now and then. Usually a Bond flick does it for me.

14. Mission Impossible II
Edited on Wed Mar-28-07 10:56 AM by Deep13
Seriously, as action films go, it is really good. Car chases, numerous gun fights, spy gadgets and killer germs. It is really cool. No boobs, though.

17. If you like mindless comedy...
try "Nothing But Trouble". Great cast; Dan Akroyd, John Candy(playing two parts, a man and a woman), Chevy Chase, Demi Moore. And every woman I know hates it!! :silly:

Another favorite of mine is an oldie but goodie; "Deathwish", Charles Bronson at his best!! :hi:
