What do you MEAN you like the way my ass looks in these jeans?

Well well well, can you believe it! ManCry is now one year old. To think this small little blog started as an idea to share my laughs and more importantly tears with you all a year ago. I’m very surprised and pleased to have as of this posting, slightly short of 10,000 hits! A big thank you to each and every one of you for enjoying the site. As always, feedback wanted! I promise more soundtracks of the weekend, movie reviews, ending scenes and hell, even more midgets if you want it. I hope at least you have shared a laugh with me on here and also thought “what a classic!” when reading some of my movie choices. Here are some fun facts for you : (figures up to date as of this posting)

9,846 visits to Mancry

1,979 views to Capt Phil Harris Funeral scene! RIP Phil!

788 views to Field of Dreams of ending scene (our biggest search hit). Proudly supporting you all having a good cry to this amazing scene!

319 views – ManCry debate of the week – would you fire a midget ?

245  of Kevin Costner & Modern West Live Review

198 views of The Expendables Movie Review ( I hope you have seen this already by now!!)

151 views of Hall of Fame

Also 889 views to my Happy Easter post! I think it must be the GREAT picture I found 🙂

These are just some of our top hits I thought I would share. More disturbingly, thanks to wordpress, I can see the top searches you crazy people put in google to find ManCry!

1st place :   “bunnys” – I told you its the picture!

2nd place “field of dreams ending scene”

3rd place “midget”

I’d really love to see some shrink analysis all this. Then again, it might just be as simple as, most guys love a bit of field of dreams and midget entertainment. In that case, I have a great movie idea…. Field Of Dreams (with midgets) !? Now If I can just find the funding….

Here’s the pics just for your amusement ! THANKS AGAIN ALL & KEEP COMING BACK 🙂

Weekly Top 5 Countdown…. Top 5 Kevin Costner Films

February 22, 2010 at 2:22 pm | Posted in Film, Top 5 countdown | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Welcome to our new feature – Our weekly top 5 countdown list. Who better to start off with than the one and only K man – Kevin Costner. Check back here daily to find out what’s at number 1!

Number 5 – WaterWorld (1995)


I don’t give a fuck what anyone says – This film ROCKS! It’s so corny it’s good. Some classic scenes and hey – Kev got the idea about global warming right way before it came into focus recently. So just remember, when all the icebergs melt, be sure to get a big boat, then go looking for a girl with a map on her back!  Dennis Hopper with an eye patch – Best bad guy ever!It just goes to show, whether on land, air or sea – Kevin Costner fucking rocks!

Nice little montage below

Number 4 – Robin Hood- Prince of Thieves (1991)



Two words – Fucking Classic! I think this was one of the very first films to do a CGI shot with an arrow. It was cool back then and it’s still cool now. Some great performances and classic lines throughout – including “Cancel Christmas” from Alan Rickman. And of course don’t forget the epic soundtrack – Overall I still can’t watch Robin Hood without smiling away throughout. Even as a peasant – Kevin Costner ROCKS!

Number 3- The Postman (1997)

(ManCry review here)

I think the Postman is rather like Marmite- You either love it or hate it. I happen to love it! There are so many great K man films to consider in this list but The Postman is at number 3 for 1 very good reason – When was the last time you got emotional over some fucking mail ? Kevin Costner is so god damn talented he can make us emotionally invest in a film centered around a postman delivering his mail. He doesn’t just deliver mail – he delivers hope! So the next time you complain about your mail being late – just take a moment and think what Kevin Costner did for you! An enjoyable film all around with some good scenes in my opinion. Some literally EPIC quotes throughout including the rather poetic “How much post can a dead postman deliver?”

I don’t know about you but when my son gets older I’m definitely gonna slip that quote in over the dinner table! Even if it’s something completly unrelated like “Man I got so drunk last night dad I thought I was gonna die!” “Well son, how much post can a dead postman deliver?” (pause and look at  my son in the eyes for at LEAST 30 seconds)  That should set him on the staight and narrow path !

– Ending scene below – EPIC!

Number 2 – Dances With Wolves (1990)

One word – EPIC (or Boring to some strange people). This is easily the best work Kevin Costner has ever done. I am a huge fan of this film and it’s actually rather hard to explain why it’s so good. You either love it or you don’t. Yes its a long one (236 min directors cut ) but that’s Kev’s thing. Some amazing scenery throughout the film and how the buffalo were “fake” during the hunting scenes is simply amazing ( I reckon they just killed a few then pretended they used “fake” buffalo).  It’s actually a pretty way of telling the truth how the Americans literally destroyed a race of people because they wanted to live in their country. No offence Americans but you can sugar coat it all you want – that’s a fact. Also just remember – Everyone is going on about how good “Avatar” is – its just Dances with Wolves in blue!

Ending scene..

Simply one of the best Soundtracks ever written below….

Number 1 – Wyatt Earp (1994)


Now I’m sure this film at number one will upset a lot of people! What about Field of Dreams I hear you shout at the monitor! Well Field of Dreams is so damn good it doesn’t even need to  be in a list – It will always remain at the top of films that make men cry so don’t panic. However this list is personal to me and  I don’t want to make it like every other list out there! So calm down and let me explain why I picked Wyatt Earp:

Wyatt Earp is simply a masterpiece . Kevin Costner is great at playing the cowboy roles and we love watching them. However Wyatt Earp has this special something. I can’t really explain it but if you ask what do you think of the Wyatt Earp film ( the K man version not the other one, Tombstone), most will reply “Classic” in a heart beat. Some really great performances in this from Costner, Hackman and Quaid . I had a lump in my throat when the father and son jail scene where he says goodbye. There are some absolutely classic quotes in this film not to be forgotten such as:

Clem Hafford: Is there gonna be a fight, Wyatt?
Wyatt Earp: I think there must be.

Wyatt Earp: Mister, I’ve been in a really bad mood for the last few years, so I’d appreciate it if you’d just leave me alone.

Nicholas Earp: Remember this, all of you. Nothing counts so much as blood. The rest are just strangers.

Wyatt Earp: What’s wrong with you?
Doc Holliday: What is wrong with me? What have you got? I am dying of tuberculosis. I sleep with the nastiest whore in Kansas. Everyone who knows me hates me, and every morning I wake up surprised that I have to spend another day in this piss-hole world. (To onlookers) All you can kiss my rebel dick!
Wyatt Earp: Not everyone who knows you hates you, Doc.
Doc Holliday: I know it’s not always easy being my friend, but I’ll be there when you need me.

If you are like me, you just read those quotes and now you want to watch it on DVD straight away! Of course part of what makes the film great is not only some great scenes with good acting but some great vistas and scenery to boot, along with a good story and soundtrack. But overall in summary, the reason this film is at the top of my list is 1/ It’s Kevin Costner! and 2/ Wyatt Earp is based on Wyatt Earp!

Wyatt Earp was a real man and what a fascinating life he lead. I find it almost unreal to think it this legend of a man only died in  1929 and his wife died in 1944! Think about that!  It’s amazing to think the amazing times these people lived in was not even more than 100 years ago! So that’s why this film is number one – A great movie about a great man! If you want to know more about the real Wyatt Earp check out this link

Movie scenes and soundtrack below.. enjoy….

Great Jail scene with the Dad from 5:40 onwards: (hmmmmmmmmmmm)

Well people, I hope you enjoyed this new Top 5 Countdown list. Of course there are so many great films to think about, but all were considered and I stand by my selection! Of course If any of you haven’t seen all these films – You have no excuses – Go and see them there great! Or just watch them again! Comments/Feedback and suggestions very welcome. Any ideas for the next top 5 list? Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed and had at least a smile 🙂

Well here’s an early Christmas present for you all! Check out this trailer for the new “Robin Hood” film coming in 2010 starring Russell Crowe. I’ll be honest – This has huge potential and I’d go see it. Lets hope it will have some ManCry moments for us to share. On a side note – Let’s make one thing clear – Russell has HUGE shoes to fill – can’t beat old Kev as Robin Hood ! Classic trailer and soundtrack below – because it’s that damn good!

(There’s a high chance Russell Crowe just browsed ManCry and thought to himself  “F*ck I wish I was Kevin Costner”

The Guardian (2006)

This is a good film. I’ll sum it up with the following sentence. Kevin Costner as a life guard! Exactly – If you don’t know by now – Kevin Costner is the man 🙂 He can also multi-task and learn a new job really quickly – He’s not just good at it, he aces it!  Let’s take a quick look at some of his roles :

Farmer ( Field of Dreams  ending scene hmmmmmm)

Bodyguard

Robin Hood

A Postman

Elvis

A Life Guard

Now I’ll be honest thats not even half of it, but if someone walked into my office with those credentials – they’d get the job – just because of the amount of amazing conversations that would take place by the water tower / coffee machine !

A great film and good performance by old Kev as always. If you haven’t seen it – you should!

(Film ending and soundtrack below)

Memorable film quote :

I had a case a while back, a couple was drowning. By the time I got there, the husband was dragging his wife under, just trying to stay afloat. Pure survival instinct. It took me a long time to understand that that man was me.

(hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)

ManCry star rating ******** 8/10

**SPOILER**Great ending … cheesy of course  but gave me a hmmmmmmmmmm and a dry throat for sure.

Good music aswell

Bonus: I found this while browsing for The Guardian – Well put together – gave me a little hmmmmm moment

The Postman (1997)

This film has the most boring title ever, but It’s awesome ! Kevin Costner rocks – end of! If you don’t agree –  log off this site – go watch this on DVD and then write me an e-mail saying “I’m sorry – I’ve seen the light!” It’s true most people hate this film but I thought it was brilliant. My site, my rules 🙂 I must admit I would of liked to have been at the film creative meeting :

Meeting spokesman : “So anyone got any ideas for a new film? Kev?”

Kevin Costner ” Erm how about a film about a postman – Worlds gone to pot, but a guy “delivers hope” as a postman?”

Meeting spokeman “Erm are you sure about this? It sounds a little …”

(Kevin Costner slides over a signed copy of “Field of Dreams” on DVD ….)

Meeting spokesman “Lets start filming next week!”

I think it could of happened that way at least!

Memorable film quote: “How much post can a dead postman deliver?”

(I’ll use that in many arguments for when my son gets older)

ManCry star rating ***** 5/10

Ending and some great scenes below:
