Blu-rays for Single Dudes

Companionship is a shackle, my friend! This Valentine's Day, let the joy of solitude explode off of your screen! Explosive action! Explosive belching! Explosive explosives! In the din of firearms and laughter, ye shall hear freedom's sweet song! I just hope it's loud enough to cover the sound of my gentle sobs...

WOW, I own 10/13 of those titles. I have seen all 13 and have watched each no less than 20 times over the years. I haven't seen Basic Instinct since HBO in 93. But I do remember I owned the VCR and there is one scene I know I watched about 100 times and made the tape useless from over play and pause. LOL

I was in my early 20's and in love with Sharon Stone. SO BACK OFF. Where is TOTAL RECALL?

Other than Basic Instint each is a classic.

If I had to choose 4.
Scarface
CaddyShack
Big Lebowski

Dam that 4th one is tough.
But I would lean toward....

DIEHARD!

Just a classic that I watch everytime I am channel surfing. Hell I watched it yesterday and it still holds up strong. Just a GREAT MOVIE. HANS GRUBER!

That would be a great weekend movie marathon. I have seen each of these movies in the past 2 months. That is how good they are. The only one I haven't seen in about a year is the Dirty Dozen, which is a great war movie. Watch that with the BIG RED ONE, for a great WWII weekend.

I own 12 of 13 of these, and 8 on bluray. I rarely buy disc anymore, thanks to streaming. But if you don't have Netflix, Amazon Prime, premium Uverse, iPad, etc... GO FOR IT.

Yes, SINGLE AND PROUD!

How about another category, "Movies For Guys With Brains?"

I'd suggest Funeral in Berlin, Enemy Mine, The Tall Blond Man With One Red Shoe (French version), Groundhog Day, War Of The Worlds (1954 version). Oh yeah, IRON SKY! (Now on Netflix!!!)

acpress.com Not cute, but useful.

Not to mention it is often only $9.99 with free shipping on amazon.com. Best movie ever.

I started reading this listing of available films and couldn't help but just think of lines from the films. In example:

-"RUN! GET TO THE CHOPPER!"
-"Well, that's like, totally your opinion man"
-"All I have in this world is my..."
-"*Roundhouse Kick!*"
-"Just there the barbarians huddle, sheer terror gripping tight their hearts with icy fingers... knowing full well what merciless horrors they suffered at the swords and spears of three hundred. Yet they stare now across the plain at *ten thousand* Spartans commanding thirty thousand free Greeks! HA-OOH!"
-All of the opening 44 minutes of Full Metal Jacket
-...it had Rodney Dangerfield. Every line is a quote.
-"Do I sound like I'm trying to order a Pizza?"
-"I didn't say that it would be easy, Neo. I just said that it would be the truth."
"You're a bum, Rock!"
-"You like playing games don't you?"
-"He ain't pretty no more"
-It's Lee Marvin.

6 years bag-of-crapless and counting...

Can't watch Road House without thinking of Bill Murray. Which makes it all that much more awesome.

These movies are in the $7.00 bin at WALMART!! How are these, Plus Tax, and PLUS 5.00 SHIPPING, any cheaper? They're not, go to walmart and get them, you'll save at least $5.00 per title on shipping alone.

I think you'd have to go with Die Hard....but I have a major problem with the description (and its killing me)... Hans Gruber is played by Alan Rickman, NOT Alexander Godunov. That is a HUGE difference.

Easy....Big Lebowski, Caddyshack, Full Metal Jacket, and Predator.

Its all about the repeat viewings.....

I love SCARFACE....but you can't watch it over and over back to back.....that'd just be disturbing.

Clicked on "Blu-Rays for single dudes" expecting O-face. Leaving disappointed.

(With an honorable mention going to "Basic Instinct")

There are three problems with that statement:

First: Non sequitur. If $9 or less from 'Shop A' is a lower price than 'Shop B', the 'Shop B' is not necessarily a high price, it is only a higher price than 'Shop A'. For example: If someone offered to sell you a Lamborghini Gallardo for $100, someone else offering one for $10 dollars does not make $100 a bad deal.

Second: Your comparison is only applicable to those who have Amazon Prime; not everyone has Amazon Prime.

Third: After the initial purchase, Woot! ships additional purchases free of charge within the same calendar day. Anyone who has already purchased an item may therefore receive the Matrix at the same cost as Amazon, presuming it is the $9 you say it is.
