    Whats a good "gun" movie to watch?

    I'm sooooo fricken bored. I came back to my college apartment early to get some things taken care of and to get ready for the new school year,but that didn't take as long as I thought and none of my friends are back in down . :( My on-campus job doesn't start until Sunday...

    So, help me pick out a movie or two..or three to watch over the next couple of days. It doesn't really need to be about guns, but it should have guns in it (lots of them) ;).

    BTW I watched Tombstone the other night.

    My vote is always for '"Heat" - lot of authenticity.

    For cowboy stuff the old movie with the ''Duke" - the Shootist'' is good.

    For some rifle stuff ''Quiggly Down under'' is good.

    +1 that bank robbery scene has to be the most realistic shootout ever!!

    It looks just like the 97 bank robbery in LA.

    Shooter if you haven't seen it yet. Maybe SWAT, or Assault on Precint 13?

    Black Hawk Down.

    Way of the Gun was OK, but the utter lack of recoil from all the weapons (and no effort to hide this minor discrepancy) started to bug me after a while. SWAT made me physically ill, it was so bad...

    Other decent ones are Ronin, Collateral, True Romance...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    yep, it's a good waste of time, the plot isn't that great but it's a decent gun movie.
