    What is considered to be some of the best, most accurate gun movies? I am referring to any good gun movies made in the past 10-15 years. Say 1980s and newer.

    I am trying to expand my DVD collection a bit.....

    L.A. Confidential


    Cross of Iron

    I bought L.A. Confidential on Friday. I'd seen it about half a dozen times on TV. It's so much better on DVD it's not even funny.

    Don't know if you can get Cross of Iron on DVD or not.

    The Band of Brother's DVD set, but its more than just a "gun" movie

    I don’t know if this fits your criteria but I just finished Jeremiah Johnson. Haven’t seen it in years. Not allot of guns but those were real men.

    What the heck is Boondock Saints about?

    It was on the "reduced price" (9.99, IIRC) rack at Target.

    I just wasn't sure whether to get it or not, and from the jacket writeup, it won 782 Oscars and has been unanimously voted the greatest movie of all time... :rolleyes:

    Best gun movies

    are allways going to be westerns or war movies. Westerns are my favorites.

    The Wild Bunch

    Liberty Valance

    The Shootist

    Valdez is Comming

    Lonesome Dove

    Last Train From Gun Hill

    Any movie with John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Ben Johnson, Burt Lancaster or Lee Marvin.

    Any movie directed by Sam Peckenpah.:D

    And who can forget "Zardoz"

    Buy the Boondock Saints, Mike. You won't regret it.

    It's kind of a spoof on superheroes. These two Irish brothers become vigilantes that go out and kill bad guys. Dark humor, but immensely enjoyable. One of my favorite movies, period.

    Can't wait til Pt. II comes out!!

    Is that movie really any good? It looked silly and stupid, which is why I didn't see it.
  13. The way of the Gun was pretty cool, realistic reloads and stuff.
    Blackhawk Down & Saving Private Ryan were great!
    Shot through the Heart was interesting.
    Sniper sucks!
    Army of Darkness is the Best!:evil:

    HEAT is probably the best all time gun movie, followed by the cartoon Cowboy Bebop!

    Actually, I laugh my fundament off every time I watch City Heat, with Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds. The shootout in the garage, where they alternate drawing guns with longer and longer barrels? Priceless. :D

    I really dislike Steven Seagal, but his movies often have very authentic use of 1911s.

    ECK VS SEVER: A lot of cool guns, but the movie is terrible. Really terrible.

    "The Professional", uncut version: At least he cleans his guns. Once called the "mark", "the client"... That is a bad mistake

    "The Unforgiven"

    "Blackhawk Down" was realistic

    worst... "Matrix" .. the gun was shooting unfired ammunition through the air in slow motion.

    Hey... I'm a "Senior" .. party time.
