True and Tough Manly Movie characterizations

Here are my personal recommendations of movies with strong and tough MANly characterizations.

Trying not to miss out any good ones that i might have forgot, i searched the web with the key words-'top manly movies' and i was disappointed to see the lists that came up had emphasis on movies with beefy actors and gun fights. So, I hope you see what this list is not about.
This is about the solid characterizations of men with inspiring manly body language. No Fuss, No Extra emotion, No Nonsense. I am having hard time finding the adjectives to describe the list. If you see what i mean, this one word is actually enough to describe the theme - 'MANLY'.

Unforgiven (1992) - Clint Eastwood

Gone with the wind (1939) - Clark Gable (As Rhett Butler)

Deliverance (1972) - Burt Reynolds (As Lewis Medlock)

Full Metal Jacket (1987) - Lot of them (Directed by Stanley Kubrick).

The movie that made me become a fan of Stanley Kubrick

God father (1972) - Marlon Brando

Schindler's List (1993) - Liam Neeson (As Schindler)

Gangs of New York (2002) - Daniel Day Lewis (As Bill the Butcher)

A Perfect World (1993) - Kevin Costner (One more of Clint Eastwood's)

A Few Good Men (1992) - Jack Nicholson (As Col. Jessep)

Sin city (2005) - Mickey Rourke (Marv)

Dana Veera Soora Karna, Missamma and a lot of other movies i can not recall right now-NTR

I know i didn't list any movies of Rober De Niro, Al pacino, Sean penn, Stallone etc.., May be in the second list.
Did i miss out on any good ones ?
