* Heat
DeNiro, Pacino, Sizemore, Kilmer, and Danny Trejo...nothing more needs to be said about that.
Even still a surprising number of guys I run into IRL have never seen or even heard of this film (!?), thus it's heading up the list.

*Way of The Gun starring Benecio Del Torro, Ryan Phillipe
This movie is a modern day classic albeit a not well known sleeper...one of the very few movies I've actually bought

* Collateral
Think what you might about Tom Cruise and his personal views, this film is excellent and so is he as hitman 'Vincent'.

* Commando
This rarely ever gets the props it should as it was nothing but ass kicking from start to finish.

* My Name is Nobody starring Terrence Hill and henry Fonda in the last western he ever filmed and arguably his best roll as a cowboy.
This also is arguably the best spaghetti western in so far as it's story and direction. Yes I am huge Clint and western fan so to say as much for this film is trust me not done lightly. BTW this entire film and basis is a homage of sorts to the Eastwood charachter in concept.

*S.W.A.T the TV show
Steve Forrest & Robert Ulrich
Yeah it wasn't a movie but fuck it...even as this show was on for just one season it packed so much bad ass kick ass A-Team style men in a van type stuff that it's just not right not to give this at the very least an honorable mention. This show was ripped off by the A-team amongst others and poorly redone as a movie starring Colin whatever his name is. if ever you can find the original show on DVD do buy it then PM me.

* Point Blank starring Lee Marvin
This movie is a film noir classic that was remade as 'Payback' in the 90's and starred Mel Gibson. The remake was pretty good but as usual the original is better.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BwVSFRjd68 (I added this second scene only because the WAPCE attack by Angie Dickinson is just damn hilarious)

* Hard Boiled starring Chow Yun Fat and directed by John Woo
Like Heat and Collateral as well this late 80's generation film should require no introduction
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQUznmRAf0s

* Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds, Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Bill McKinney
A Hollywood classic that amongst other items touches on the rarely ever depicted in film but very real human conflict of making the internal decision to trigger down and take the life of another man even as it is to save your own.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9R4t_Nwy5E

* The Professional starring Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman and Jean Reno
Yet another modern classic. Oldman as a drug crazed sociopathic NYC detective, Portman as a 'La Femme Nikita' type 12 yr.old, and Jeano Reno as a 'Cleaner'.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-svD66i09bo

* True Romance starring Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette and featuring Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, and James Gandolfini as a hitman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88CrxzDBk3U

* The King of New York starring Christopher Walken, Laurence Fishburne, Wesley Snipes and David Caruso
The video is not a clip from the movie as I couldn't find one. But it is a music video of the very much forgotten but historical Schooly D toward the movies primary song...and it features Laurence Fishburne in the background mugging for the camera which alone is worth the price of admission
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88CrxzDBk3U

* The Shootist Starring John Wayne and Ron Howard
John Waynes final film and a classic western about a dying gunslinger who rides into a town wanting nothing more but to die in peace, which of course cannot be abided. Ron howard stars as a young admirer.
<No video clip found>

* The Rundown starring 'The Rock' and Christopher Walken
A badass asskick-o-rama of a flick. This films stunts are ridiculous, especially based around a guy the size of The Rock as he's neither small nor wiry but the man sure as hell is lithe.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3uPptd1b9w

* The Outlaw Josey Wales starring Clint Eastwood and Bill McKinney
Clint kicks all manner of ass in this film as nothing more than a royally pissed off family man done wrong during the Civil War by southern 'Redleg' rogue Bill McKinney. An excellent film especially for those who enjoy movies on revenge.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFfdfYN4lsw

* The Last Man Standing starring Bruce Willis
Another homage to the Eastwood 'Man with no name' charachterization. This time done un up in a depression ear sense within the US. It got like zero press when it came out but it is one to catch.

And this movie was a homage to which kurosawa film?
If you said Yojimbo, you are right

This semi-comic 1961 film by legendary director Akira Kurosawa (Rashomon, Ran) was inspired by the American Western genre. Kurosawa mainstay Toshirô Mifune (The Seven Samurai) plays a drifting samurai for hire who plays both ends against the middle with two warring factions, surviving on his wits and his ability to outrun his own bad luck. Eventually the samurai seeks to eliminate both sides for his own gain and to define his own sense of honor. Yojimbo is striking for its unorthodox treatment of violence and morality, reserving judgment on the actions of its main character and instead presenting an entertaining tale with humor and much visual excitement. One of the inspirations for the "spaghetti Westerns" of director Sergio Leone and later surfacing as a remake as Last Man Standing with Bruce Willis, this film offers insight into a director who influenced American films even as he was influenced by them. --Robert Lane for Amazon

NN,

Both of those are very well known so I purposefully did not include them.
Even still both of those films _rock_ and I think I've seen Tombstone like 100 times now, it just never ever gets old.
I didn't focus on knife movies although there are a ton around that are pretty good...maybe you could do same/similar for that area (?).

Socom the Last Man Standing flick is an homage to Fistful of Dollars which is a well known homage to Kurosawa.

aahhh gotcha. most of my friends had never heard on boondock before i showed it to em, thats why i sugested it. im watching toombstone right now :)

oh! i almost forgot. the european cut of the profesional i think is substianlly better. some scenes are alterd slightly, but there is a ton more back story. you find out how Leon got into the buis and stuff. its called Leon, or Leon the professional.

equalibrium is a sweet film as well. only a few guns in it though, a few HK's, the walther sniper rifle that gets shotgun sound fx, and the barretta with the ginormoius compensator on it. but the gun kata scenes are sick.

Add to this list Ronin. DiNiro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone.

Oldstyle action-thriller, with a bomb car chase as well as great gunfighting.

Since you mentioned T.V. shows, does anyone currently watch Dallas SWAT on A&E? I've met a few of these guys when I lived in Dallas, one of them lived down the street from me.

Yeah I've been watching since it started.
A good show but I like the current season less than last season.
Also when did they get a female on the team?

I think the female has been on the team for a few years. They did do a show on her awhile back.

There is a movie called "Guns" that is awesome. They use that pistol that shoots rockets. There are ninja's in it. They get blown away by a nasty female bodybuilder with a 357 or something.

Fist full of dollars is a great CE movie. " When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said the man with the pistol's a dead man, lets see if that's true" that's one of Eastwoods best lines ever. It doesn't have the gun selection like josey wales with the 69 schofields, walker's confederates not to mention the gatlin guns, sharps and various muzzleloaders but fist full of dollars is still a great gun movie.

Awesome thread. As I've seen every title listed, it reminds me to watch them again in a better(mature) state of mind. Way to go.
