Well, It’s about time for a new weekly countdown I think! Thanks for the positive feedback for the last list (Top 5 Kevin Costner films here ). Hope you all enjoy :

Number 5 – Savior (1998) ( ManCry review here)

This is classic Dennis Quaid. Great film and well played by Quaid. This had me in tears at the end, in the way only Quaid can pull off. If you haven’t seen it you should , pure classic. Dennis Quaid is so good, he can make a stupidly oversized, non shaped beret look GOOD!

Number 4 – The Day After Tomorrow (2004)

An enjoyable film, even though perhaps not the most realistic! Dennis Quaid playing a Dad in search for his son. You can’t really go wrong from there! Some good CGI effects and action scene. Nice to see Dennis still has his touch on the big screen after all these years. Keep rocking Dennis!

Nice little montage below

Number 3 – Vantage Point (2008)

I enjoyed this film – Dennis Quaid kicking ass as the president’s security. Some good action scenes and twists in the plot made this one the list in my opinion. Some great stuff from Quaid as usual. I wonder if the president has seen this film and would actually consider Dennis Quaid as his security guard? I think he should…..

Number 2 – Wyatt Earp (1994)

Dennis Quaid is simply awesome in this. He lost a shit load of weight to play the role and plays Doc Holliday superbly. One of my favourite films (number 1 on my top 5 Kevin Costner films here) and it just wouldn’t be the same without Quaid in it. Superb stuff!


Number 1- Frequency  (2000) (ManCry review here)


This is by far my favourite Dennis Quaid movie! I cried to this as usual. The parts over the radio between the dad and son and are just priceless. “I love you son” hmmmm. If only we could all speak to family members over an old radio, the world would be a far, far better place! Classic performance by Quaid with a movie ending that blew my mind. This one is a MUST see for anyone who wants a ManCry and who enjoys a bit of “old Quaid”

Little chief… hmmmmmmm

(I just watched the above video… I’m in pieces….. I love you son hmmmmmmm)

Well that’s another Top 5 films done Gentlemen. I hope you enjoyed my personal list and comments or feedback very welcome. Any ideas for the next weekly top 5? Then get writing below….

Have a great weekend little chiefs everywhere (hmmmmm)

Savior (1998)

I was recommended this one and was glad I watched it recently. A good film, simple story and not the best special effects in the world but well worth a watch.  The Story : Joshua is a former U.S. military official who fled to the Foreign Legion when his wife Maria was killed by Muslim fundamentalists in Paris, and now he’s a mercenary, fighting in the Yugoslav war on the Serbian side against Muslims. I’m not sure I fully understand the Bosnia conflict but the film had me in tears at the end and with the baby scene after the shootings.

If you haven’t seen it, go check it out. My favourite scene is where after the death of his family (a bomb by muslim extremists) he walks in to the nearest mosque and just blows everyone away! I’m not saying it’s the solution to the worlds problems or it was a fair justice but it certainly stuck in my mind.

Memorable film quotes

Sorry about your family.

It’s war.

ManCry star rating ***** 5/10

Brutal scene below. Anyone got a headache pill?
