4 More Hollywood Films For Men That Leave Today’s SJW Movies In The Dust

Your old Uncle Bob tries to mix things up whenever and wherever possible, so today we’re going to take a look at four RPO films for men that might have slipped under the average guy’s radar, especially in the case of you younger squires.

Each of these winning films is definitely worth a look, as they not only entertain, but also provide you with a solid glimpse of some vital solutions surrounding the tantalizing mysteries of life. In addition, they sure as hell are fun to watch – which is always a plus, especially when it comes to spending your precious time and money watching Hollywood movies.

So without making an even bigger fuss about it, let’s get down to brass tacks and find out why these four, lesser-known, highly entertaining, RPO films for men are eminently worth your time – and then some.

1. City of Industry (1997 – Harvey Keitel, Timothy Hutton, Stephen Dorff, Famke Janssen)


In this hard-hitting, neo-noir crime drama, master thief Roy Egan (Harvey Keitel) comes out of retirement for one final jewelry heist, at the urging of his ex-con brother, Lee Egan (Timothy Hutton). After assembling a motley crew of highly skilled surveillance men and thieves, the Egan brothers stake out a jewelry store which they have chosen as their target, in order to get their ducks in a row for what appears to be a relatively easy score.

All goes well for them during the ensuing robbery, despite being surrounded by a bevy of clueless policemen in lights-a-flashing squad cars for a couple of extremely tense minutes shortly after the heist, and the Egan brothers and their crew manage to get away clean, retreating to the sanctuary of a trailer park out in the L.A. desert, in order to lay low for a while, as they set themselves to work regarding the details of fencing their ill-gotten gains.


But things go to hell in a hand basket at that point, as the psychotic newcomer to their crew, Skip Kovich (Stephen Dorff), decides to blow them all away and make off with the goods. Roy Egan manages to escape Kovich’s wrath, but his brother Lee isn’t so lucky, catching a round in the chest at close range from Kovich’s .38. Roy hides in a nearby drain pipe after the police are called to the scene, and after he takes a day or two to mend his psyche, and his wounds, in a seedy L.A. hotel room, he hatches a devious scheme for exacting revenge on the traitorous Skip Kovich.

The remainder of this solid, RPO film for men is violent, gritty, totally believable, and rounded out by a strong performance from Famke Janssen, who plays the recently widowed Rachel Montana, whose husband was one of Skip’s trailer-park murder victims. Janssen’s bitch-on-wheels portrayal of the righteously indignant hot wife of a dead ex-con, features numerous shit tests, extreme vulnerability, simmering sexuality, and ultimately, a genuine display of knockout loyalty to the man who eventually gets revenge (as well as a pile of money) for both of them.


This highly satisfying film will leave you feeling hopeful that women like Janssen’s character actually exist in the real world. And in the opinion of your Old Uncle Bob, they definitely do. You just have to work hard to find them, and then, you have to be man enough to keep them. (In my particular case, for maybe a year or two, tops.)

This is a good film to watch with that hottie you’ve had your eye on who lives in your building. Shoot her a text and tell her to cancel her plans and get the hell over to your place, pronto – and don’t forget to bring refreshments.

2. Devil In A Blue Dress (1995 – Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Jennifer Beals, Tom Sizemore)


This under-the-radar, neo-noir, cinematic gem is based on the novel of the same name, written by Walter Mosley. Set in 1948 Los Angeles, Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins (Denzel Washington), is a World War II veteran who suddenly finds himself working as a private investigator, after being wrongfully laid off from his job working for an aircraft manufacturer.

Despite having no training, Rawlins’ fervent desire to continue paying his mortgage soon leads him to an L.A. bar managed by his old friend Joppy (Mel Winkler), where he is introduced to the shady DeWitt Albright (Tom Sizemore). Albright informs Rawlins that a beautiful young woman, Daphne Monet (Jennifer Beals), has gone missing, and he is looking to hire someone to locate her. Daphne is the girlfriend of the wealthy Todd Carter (Terry Kinney), who was the favorite to win the L.A. mayoral election, until he inexplicably dropped out of the race.


Rawlins accepts Albright’s terms for the private investigation, and he sets out to find the missing Daphne Monet – a move which, due to the age-old axiom of hindsight being 20/20, he ultimately realizes was a really big mistake.

This fast-paced film is chock-full of tension, action, drama, violence and sex—not to mention numerous red-pill life lessons, which are offered up primarily by Denzel Washington’s character.


An example of Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins’ dime-store, buddha-like wisdom:

A man once told me that when you step out of your door in the morning, you’re already in trouble. The only question is, are you on top of that trouble or not?


Denzel Washington really brings the thunder in this excellent RPO film for men, and Don Cheadle’s performance as his lifelong friend from Texas, the murderous Mouse Alexander, is a thing of absolute beauty. This is a really good film – and just like a classic old car, you can’t miss by taking it for a spin.

3. Mr. Brooks (2007 – Kevin Costner, William Hurt, Demi Moore, Dane Cook)


Maybe it’s because he’s quite a bit like the character he portrays in this intriguing, neo-noir thriller – or maybe he just got lucky, as I usually don’t care for his acting skills – but Kevin Costner absolutely aces it as the well-to-do serial killer with a split personality, Earl Brooks, in this top-notch, captivating, RPO film for men.

For some strange reason, this film didn’t do very well at the box office, which is probably why a sequel has not been made up to this point in time. But many critics loved it, as did the Average Joe reviewers at IMDB, and your old Uncle Bob really liked it as well. So maybe Hollywood will pull its head out of its collective, increasingly SJW-esque butt in the very near future, and do a second installment in the franchise, because the first film is unsettling as hell and really solid, and Hollywood definitely owes us more of this kind of fare (no doubt about that one).


William Hurt’s portrayal of Costner’s split-off, alter-ego, Marshall, is delivered with deftly satisfying aplomb. Dane Cook brings it home as the sappy, beta, wannabe-serial-killer, Mr. Smith, and does so with smooth, likeable and totally believable ease (most likely because he is a beta and he is likeable), and despite Demi Moore’s palpably weak portrayal of Detective Tracy Atwood, this film fires fast and hard on all cylinders and will leave you rooting for Costner’s unhinged, mass-murderer character to escape his myriad police pursuers… so he can either get his act together and stop murdering people, or regroup and kill again.

The scenes featuring Hurt and Costner are truly epic; the dreary, cloudy, rainy, Portland Oregon locale is perfect for the overall mood of the film; and the murder scenes are tense, unsettling, and eerily real, to the point where you’ll feel the whole thing churning in the pit of your stomach.

This one is worth every second you spend on it – and there is zero doubt about that one. So check it out soon, young squires. You’ll be really glad you did.

4. Blood Simple (1983 – John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh)


I don’t usually care too much for the Coen brothers’ films (as if Joel Coen and Ethan Coen care what I think, Oscar-winners and multi-millionaires that they are), but this under-the-radar classic delivers a full-course cinematic meal, comprised of deception, betrayal and murder, and it’s served up hot and fresh – with a major side of shock sauce.

Texas bar-owner Julian Marty (Dan Hedaya) has an all-too-common problem on his hands, one that most men have to face at least once during the course of their lifetimes – his wife is fucking somebody else. Determined to get the proof of her infidelity, Marty hires sleazy private investigator Loren Visser (M. Emmet Walsh) to do whatever is necessary to catch the cheating slut in the act. Visser complies, taking numerous photographs of Marty’s wife, Abby (Frances McDormand), and her lover, Ray (John Getz), through a motel window.

After returning to Marty’s bar to show him the photos, Visser teases him about being cucked, and Marty starts doing a slow burn which eventually explodes into a raging, internal inferno, as he ultimately decides to have his wife Abby, and her lover, Ray – who happens to be working for Marty as one of his own bartenders – killed.


Marty contacts Visser again by phone, in order to arrange a meeting for them to discuss his new proposal, and they eventually get together at a hillside hangout for teenagers to work out the details, where Marty finds Visser hitting on an underage girl. Marty and Visser retreat to the privacy of Visser’s clunky old Volkswagen Beetle, where they hammer out the terms of the contract killing – $10,000 in cash, paid in full after the deal is done.

Visser accepts Marty’s proposal, and then tells him to disappear for a few days and go fishing. But after thinking it all over for a while, Visser hatches a devious double-cross that ultimately turns out to be Marty’s worst nightmare – as well as his own.


I won’t spoil the remainder of this truly entertaining and thought-provoking film for you, other than to point out that the Coen brothers actually managed to capture the truly demented nature of the human mind to absolute perfection here, as giant misunderstandings, miscommunications, and misinterpretations abound. The tension in some of the scenes is full-throttle fantastic; the dialogue is realistically spot-on; and the direction, acting and pace of the film are top-notch.

If you only see one of the four films I reviewed for you here today, make it this one. Because this is truly a five-star RPO film for men that will leave you thinking about human nature, human sexuality, and human depravity for a long time afterwards.


For a little taste of what you can expect from Blood Simple, here’s M. Emmet Walsh’s opening voiceover, from the very first scene of the film:

SCENE 1: An opening voiceover plays against dissolving Texas landscapes–broad, bare, and lifeless.

The world is full of complainers. But the fact is, nothing comes with a guarantee. I don’t care if you’re the Pope of Rome, President of the United States, or even Man of the Year–something can always go wrong. And go ahead, complain, tell your problems to your neighbor, ask for help–watch him fly. Now in Russia, they got it mapped out so that everyone pulls for everyone else–that’s the theory, anyway. But what I know about is Texas. And down here…you’re on your own.


Modern Hollywood movies are like a song with one note. And those one-note farces get really old after a very short while. But despite SJW Hollywood’s current penchant for producing mind-numbing drivel, you can still find some absolute winners inside the film vaults of yesteryear.

The elitists might be leading the game at the moment, but every point we score from here on out definitely counts. So vote with your dollars, young squires, and maybe Hollywood will backtrack one day very soon, and lift their all-too-heavy foot off of that mind-control gas pedal of theirs, and start making good films again. Rent a couple of these fast-paced, thought-provoking, RPO films for real men as soon as possible. And score a point for the manosphere.

No matter what happens in that regard, your old Uncle Bob will keep pointing out the golden cinematic wheat among the mountains of puerile, IQ-lowering chaff (so long as ROK wants me to do so and so long as I don’t run out of good films to review), and unlike the loyalty of your current special snowflake, that is something that you can most definitely count upon…

  1. Not sure if you have reviewed these in the past:
    – Outlaw Josie Wales
    – To Live and Die in LA
    – Things to do in Denver when you’re Dead
    – Brick

      1. Yeah, super cool film.
        If you watch it more than once, you will always see something you didn’t notice the first time.

      2. Incredibly tight film, love the screwy nature of ‘what if Dashell Hammett made teen movies”

  2. I really enjoy these reviews, Uncle Bob. I love talking about film, and since we are insurgents in a culture war, it behooves us to be aware of cultural products.

    1. Glad you enjoy ’em, COP. I’ll keep churnin’ ’em out until people get sick of ’em. I’ll probably keep doing it, even if that happens (heh).

  3. Sometimes, you have to take what’s on offer, and even contemporary Hollywood can occasionally produce product that makes interesting viewing from a red-pill perspective.
    For example, I watched a new release the other day called ‘Pet’ (2016). The plot’s a bit convoluted, suffice to say that the girl stays loyal to the cheating yet jealous, alpha-douche boyfriend while the infatuated beta-orbiter ends up quite literally as her caged pet. Other matters, such as said orbiter’s willingness to get by comfortably with a cheap apartment and low paying job are also touched on.
    In fact, one of the better writers here might like to review and critique this film for ROK (the full-movie can be found online from the usual sources, for those who don’t to support Hollywood in any form).

    1. Sometimes I get the feeling I don’t want to watch that. Caged pet? God that’s disgusting on a purely biological level. I felt like I was punched in the stomach just reading that,

      1. I think she started out as his caged pet. This movie pissed off a lot of lefty reviewers so there is that.

        1. Because the woman is in the cage or the man in the cage? 10 dollar bet it’s the former.

  4. I recall City of Industry being rather ordinary, but I haven’t seen it in 20 years.
    Jennifer Beals still looks good.

      1. Seriously, I had a thing for her when I was in elementary school when I saw her in Flashdance. She’s still totally hot today. I think her smv wall must be around 65 or something.

      1. I’ve seen the original B.L about 10 times! Heh. I like the one with Cage too.
        There are far better lesser known crime films from the 90’s than City of Industry. e.g Little Odessa, The Funeral etc

  5. Another great red pill film is Thief (1981) which starred James Caan and was directed by Michael Mann. Music score was by Tangerine Dream.

    1. My personal favorite James Caan vehicle was the anti-corporate dystopian future blockbuster Rollerball.

      1. Ive always preferred the grown up Parker. Its just that certain guys like Quesada would like to keep Peter stuck in high school forever.

  6. City of Industry‘s plot synopsis there is strikingly similar to The Italian Job‘s.
    It’s interesting IMO that the “Marky Mark” version of Italian Job was released not too long after CoI (6 years) but yet it had the “strong, independent woman who ‘don’t need no man’…except she does”, Fury Road blight going on.

  7. John Glenn just passed away, so check out “The Right Stuff” in his honor. I think this movie lost Best Picture to “Gandhi”. If this movie doesnt raise your T level, nothing will.

    1. Love the beginning of the film where Chuck Yeager breaks the sound barrier with freshly broken ribs having been thrown from his horse chasing a hot chance to get laid the night before! John Glenn was one of my least favorite of the group, but there is no denying his exceptional contributions to both the space program and his country! R.I.P.

      1. What you disliked about him probably made him the best of the bunch to enter politics

  8. Last of the Mohicans (1992) is incredible – it’s basically a study in masculinity with alpha Hawkeye, beta white knight Duncan, and mega-god-emperor alpha Magua squaring off against each other.

    1. Wes Studi is an incredibly underrated actor. He’s great in Heat too, but a lot of his contributions are supporting roles.
      Magua was the coolest character in that movie. For those of you who haven’t seen it, the movie is better than the book.

  9. Hmm.
    You forgot the classic “Deep throat”
    Plot: strong independent woman can only be fulfilled by having a dong jammed into her esophagus because her feminist penis (clit) is located in the back of her mouth. Haha.
    I prefer a gut punch to sjw movie nonsense rather than passive aggressive subversion.

    1. Holy crap, how did I neglect reviewing this one – thanks for the cage-rattling reminder there, EB…

  10. Many thanks for pointing out “City of Industry” I started watching this movie- without catching the name of it- some years ago. I was totally into it, but then something came up and had to go. I’ve been wanting to watch the rest of it ever since, but didn’t know the name.
    Looking forward to watching it as well as that Coen Bros. movie I’ve never heard of…sounds great though.

  11. Today’s Hollywood films are made by wimps and perpetual adolescents. Kevin Smith, JJ Abrams, these are grown men who unabashedly indulge in juvenile fantasies that they should have out grown in their early twenties. Now compare them to John Huston and John Ford, real manly men. Not only were they rough necks who could knock you on your ass, they could recite the greatest literature at the drop of a hat. Really, I have no problem if one enjoys nerdy things but you have to draw the line at some point.

    1. You are correct about John Huston but clearly know nothing about John Ford. It’s good to keep in mind that characters in films are almost never reflections of their directors. You should probably read a biography of Ford.

  12. Mr Brooks – fucking eh I forgot about that movie!! Yeah that movie is kick ass – i need to see that again!!!

  13. Great reviews. My list
    Conan the Barbarian – 1982
    Miller’s Crossing – 1988
    Goodfellas – 1990
    Swingers – 1996
    Heat – 1995
    LA Confidential
    Glengarry Glen Ross
    Chopper – 2000
    Maltese Falcon
    Reservoir Dogs
    Sooo many and note most of these are before 2010 when things got weak.
