1.
Spartacus: War of the Damned (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Watch the story of history's greatest gladiator unfold with graphic violence and the passions of the women that love them. This is Spartacus. (55 mins.)
“ Okay, so this is not really a film. It is a television series, and it does show up elsewhere on another one of my lists. However, I cannot think of another show with so many attractive men shown in the best possible light, so it has to top my list. Also, a great plot makes it more than just a guilty pleasure. There is a lot of drama, emotion, a great bromance, and even a little romance. If you are sensitive, be aware that the graphic violence and explicit nudity and sex may be a problem, but if not, it might be worth popping into the DVD or Blue-Ray player. ” - artemis_5

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard. (179 mins.)
Director: Peter Jackson
“ J.R.R. Tolkien's classic second book of his "Lord of the Rings" trilogy comes to the big screen. The manliness factor gets hyped up from the first movie, "The Fellowship of the Ring," with the arrival of Faramir and Eomer; although only the extended director's cut preserves Boromir. If you do not know who these characters are, watch this movie and discover. Beautiful cinematography and musical score, with a fantasy Dark Ages/early medievel feel. This is a great film for preteens on up, although there is some blood and gore. ” - artemis_5

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring. (201 mins.)
Director: Peter Jackson
“ The last of the "Lord of the Rings" films and a climatic ending to the epic. By far the best film of the trilogy. Faramir, Eomer, and Aragorn continue their struggles against the evil Sauron alongside a slew of fantastic characters; including a wizard, dead warriors, elves, a dwarf, and little men called "hobbits". Hobbits Frodo and Sam continue the journey they started in "The Fellowship of the Ring" towards Mount Doom to destroy the evil "One Ring", and Pippin and Merry join the fight to free Middle Earth alongside men (and one woman). ” - artemis_5

King Arthur (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A demystified take on the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. (126 mins.)
Director: Antoine Fuqua
“ Fun retelling of the King Arthur legend goes back to its roots; in 5th Century Britain. Arturos, a half Roman half native Briton, leads a group of auxiliary knights forced into service to Rome first against the Picts (a Celtic tribe), then against the Saxons. Arthur's knights become the stuff of legend, although they are a far cry from the clean cut chivalrous versions they become in medieval tales. If you do not mind your hunks irreverent and coated in mud, you might get a kick out of this flick. Pop some popcorn and settle down on your couch for a little distraction.

Intense battle violence and blood may make it too intense for younger teens downwards, not to mention a scene of mild sensuality. ” - artemis_5

Band of Brothers (2001 Mini-Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
The story of Easy Company of the US Army 101st Airborne division and their mission in WWII Europe from Operation Overlord through V-J Day. (70 mins.)
“ Okay, I did it again. I included a television miniseries in a list of movies, but this one is worth it. Beautifully told and moving story of E Company's journey from training in Georgia to Hitler's Eagle Nest in Germany. Along the way, the men encounter heavy fighting, the harsh natural elements of Europe in winter, and deeply felt losses among their comrades, but are held together by a bond that goes beyond kinship to become a "Band of Brothers". Executively produced by Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks, this series became a classic among miniseries. There is not one person in this ensemble cast which does not deliver a magnificent performance. The violence is pretty tame for a war film, but be aware that it is present, and that there are disturbing moments in this film, as in all war films. ” - artemis_5

The Great Raid (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Taking place towards the end of WWII, 500 American Soldiers have been entrapped in a camp for 3 years. Beginning to give up hope they will ever be rescued, a group of Rangers goes on a dangerous mission to try and save them. (132 mins.)
Director: John Dahl
“ If you notice a pattern here, it is because the testosterone factor gets seriously pumped up in war films, although so few go beyond the intense battle scenes and show the real relationships between the soldiers. But this film, however, I found to be one of the different ones. "The Great Raid" is set during World War II, and documents the greatest rescue in U.S. military history, when a small but elite group of men (the 6th Ranger Battalion) undergo a mission to liberate 500 American prisoners of war from a Japanese camp. There are extensive scenes in the camp, which show the support system that the prisoners offered each other, as well as their harsh treatment at the hands of their captors. ” - artemis_5
