Our Mancry technicians hard at work.

Now thanks to wordpress, at the bottom of every post there are even more share options. Now it’s as simple as just clicking which button you would like to use (facebook, twitter, digg it, e-mail etc). So you officially have no excuses left not  to share your favourite mancry material. Unless that is, you’re too fucking lazy to press the button ? Fatty?

Get sharing, Kevin Costner’s Field of Dreams Ending Scene – the more exposure, the better. It’s what Kev would want.

RIP

Yes, you read the headline correctly. I cried my eyes out. I’m a fan of the show and it is usually very entertaining. However, seeing the sad fate of Captain Phil Harris made me cry my eyes out. It was as beautiful and moving as a movie. Sadly it was 100% real. The hospital scene made me cry my eyes out again and again. What a lovely man and it’s nice to know he has thousands of fans across the world. You can download the episodes in full from eztv.it, Season 6 episodes 14 & 15. Moving scenes below, as well as his memorial. RIP Phil. I broke down in tears again when they released the full pot and the seagull flew off…..

The Expendables (2010) – A Proper Fucking Action Film For Men!

Sly "Tell me again why you didn't like this movie!!!"

Well Gents, I can’t put this any other way than – WHAT A FUCKING FILM! I know it’s had it’s bad reviews already but hey those people simply don’t like action films. I was completely blown away by this film. With cheesy one liners throughout and more blood and violence than a mexican street rape, I don’t think anyone left the cinema without a smile on their face. Stallone hit the nail on the head with this movie. Just imagine all the men over the world going to see this film. Now you will be one of those men, who informs your friend “Dude, you have to see this movie!

I’m fairly confident that  in many years to come, kids will be studying this film instead of Shakespeare. Just stop and think for a moment here. Stallone , as of writing this post, it 65 years old. I’ll say that again – sixty-five fucking years old! Fuck me! I’m worried that I have to use a wheelchair or  piss myself uncontrollably when I’m 65 and Sly is running around killing people, punching people and being a badass! In the future there will probably be statues of Stallone in every city park with the motto “Sly can do it, so can you”.  Before countries go to war, they will watch the final scene from The Expendables. The first born male child of every family in America will be named Sly. Thousands of families will sit by the television every evening at 7 pm, to see “Sly’s wise words” (A montage of clips and sayings from all his greatest films.) When people die, at their funeral, the soundtrack will always be “eye of the tiger” at every service. You get the point.

If he keeps going at the rate he is now, he will be set for The Expendables 5 by the time he is 75! Seriously, what an amazing achievement to star in this film at 65, let alone write and direct it. Yes, his face looks like he has been through 2 world wars, but look at him – he’s ripped as hell and in amazing shape for his age. (god bless steroids)

You need to see this film in the cinema because it puts money in Sly’s pocket and he deserves it – simple as that. Just think about this concept for one moment. The film does very well. It does so well , that Sly announces a year later that they will make another one. Jean Claude Van Damme anyone!? Steven Seagal!? Chuck Norris!? The potential for a second film already gets me hard excited. The bottom line is – This is an action film for men. If you’re a man go and see it. If you don’t, you might as well spit in Sly’s face. Then spit in ever mans face that loves a good action movie. God I’ve actually sat through Twilight (not my choice)  in the cinema and was bored shitless, watching pale vampires leaping through the forrest. Finally a proper fucking action film FOR MEN! Oh and if you like Twilight and I’ve offend you? Get the fuck off my website, you’re not welcome here. We love Sly and we love this film!

(loads shotgun) Now who’s up for The Expendables II!

You WISH you looked even close to this

It’s now even easier to share your favourite ManCry content with The World! Now at the bottom of each post, you’ll see a tweet button. Just click this to share the link e.g. “Field of Dreams Ending Scene” to help others cry their eyes out. The number next to the button shows how many times it has been tweeted. I must admit, until now I thought the person who invented “twittering” was a “twat”, but now it’s quite useful 🙂  So feel free to share the posts you like here .

(all of them obviously!?)

(if you can’t see the twitter button at the bottom, it’s because you haven’t clicked on the actual post)

Inception (2010) – Mind Blowing Stuff!

Tags: , , , ,

I’m never been amazing with words, so I’ll just say this the simplest way I can : Fuck me, you have to see this film! Amazing, mind-blowing, original and breathtaking would be just a few ways I can begin to describe it. Not much of an explanation needed, the trailer says it all as always. Best of all, this film has at least 2 ManCry moments to enjoy. I would spoil it but they involve a father & son  and a Dad wanting to see his children theme. I literally cried held back tears in the cinema. I even found myself doing the manly cough of distraction and It’s been a while since I’ve done that in a cinema!

By far the one of the best parts about the film is the ending. You could hear the whole cinema talking about it and I didn’t stop talking about in the car on the way home. So please do me a favour, go see this film in the cinema, because the effects are well worth the money alone and I really want to hear all your feedback. Did you get “emotional” and what do you think of the ending? This should be an interesting discussion!

Go book the tickets NOW!

P.s. Awesome soundtrack to the film as well.

Everybody’s Fine (2009) – A Good ManCry!!!!

The trailer says it all. However what it fails to tell you is this: You will break down and cry for a good 20 minutes towards the end of the film. A really nice heart warming film, with little twists and surprises that were so well placed, I didn’t see them coming, and you can’t fight a ManCry when you don’t even see it coming! I’m still smiling while I write this, so I might have to even see the film again. Great performances from all the cast. If you fancy a good ManCry (and who doesn’t?) then be sure to check it out. Love to hear your feedback!

ManCry Movie quote “Frank Goode: [showing photos of his children to a stranger] A million feet of wire to get them where they are today.”

“The Expendables” Is Almost Here! INSTANT CLASSIC ALERT!

Sly "Just kidding lol. But seriously I could!"

Greatest movie cast ever.Period

**UPDATED** 13th Aug – Click here for The Expendables review

Well Gents, we can’t be crying all the time. So you should go and see this film. Its released this month and literally, will be an instant classic (not verified). With a cast of all your favourite action stars of the 80’s/90’s – it’s bound to be a success. Just add some explosions, guns and women and it’s gonna be great. Hell, from what I can tell about the trailer, there appears to be hints of an actual “Storyline” and occasional  scenes of  attempted “dialogue“. Does that mean Stallone even wrote, dare I say “a script” for this movie!? Brilliant! So go and be a big kid and be sure to check out this one. You won’t be disappointed.  Now let’s get down to an important question. Who would win in a real fight out of all these dudes ?

(Stallone, obviously, as he would always keep getting back up and saying ” That ain’t so bad” & “I didn’t hear no bell!”

Soundtrack Of The Weekend – Fringe (2008)

Tags: , , ,

Well I’m sorry it has been a while since we had a soundtrack of the weekend! My choice is Fringe. I just finished Season 2 and It is superb. I would describe it as “The new X-files”. The Fringe team is dedicated to all things wierd and wonderful and each episode is well written with new and exciting events taking place. However, the main story of the series is extremely well developed and Season 2 just finished with me on the edge of my seat. Also you have to watch this, as there are some EPIC father and son scenes throughout the series. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check it out! Season 3 starts  22nd September. (Season1 and 2 are currently on eztv.it )

Did I mentions it has the same director and musician as LOST ( J.J. Abrams & Michael Giacchino ? Now you know its good 🙂  Enjoy the weekend Gents….

New Feature : Guest Blogger’s ManCry Questions

Tags: , , , ,

Welcome to our new feature gentlemen :  the Guest Blogger’s Mancry Questions. I can see a lot of you who visit our site have your own blogs. So I thought why not get your opinion on some ManCry content and help promote your blog. This weeks special guest is Eric who runs a fantastic blog called filmfather. be sure to check it out!

So here come the important questions:

What was the last film you had a good old fashioned Mancry too and why ?

That’s easy — the instant Mancry classic Toy Story 3. Any man who doesn’t weep at the final scene with Andy, Bonnie, and the toys needs to see his doctor…he’s probably dead.
Are you one of those people who rarely admit to crying at films or share that information readily ?

Depends on the film and who I’m talking to. I’ll do it in front of my wife no matter what the film…however, I won’t be telling my burly Italian buddy Tony any time soon that I well up at the end of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Have you ever cried to a film and then denied it or to cover it up ?

Sure, but I can’t remember which ones. For some reason, any film with a crowd that roars to its feet in cheers from a dead silence gets me every time (i.e., the end of Babe).

Favourite ManCry film of all time ?

Finding Nemo. I defy any father with a son to not cry at least twice at that movie (I’m good for a least three times).

Have you seen Field of Dreams and did you cry to the ending scene  (here) ?

Um, yeah! I’m a guy who played baseball with his dad. Is this a trick question?

Favourite film soundtrack ?

Hard to pick just one, and I’m not in front of my music collection right now, but here goes: Pulp Fiction, Heavy Metal, A Clockwork Orange, The Third Man, Saturday Night Fever, Purple Rain, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Any other comments you would like to share with our fellow ManCry readers ? ( could be recommendations  , a story etc )
Other Mancry films I’d recommend, or at least ones that made my eyes leak: The Green Mile, Monsters Inc., WALL-E, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Rudy, The Iron Giant, Philadelphia, E.T., Up…

Many thanks again Eric ! Most importantly, he has confirmed, yet again that Field of Dream is the ultimate ManCry film 🙂 If you have any more questions for Eric, please get writing below! If you would like to be our next guest blogger please write to mancry01@gmail.com
