My favorite 150 movies of all-time!
I will update this list constantly.
I have not seen many movies that are…
Men of Honor
History is made by those who break the rules.
Against formidable odds -- and an old-school diving instructor embittered by the U.S. Navy's new, less prejudicial policies -- Carl Brashear sets his sights on becoming the Navy's first African-American master diver in this uplifting true story. Their relationship starts out on the rocks, but fate ultimately conspires to bring the men together into a setting of mutual respect, triumph and honor.
I want to thank my cousin for recommending me this movie. It's really good. It started out on a farm with black people, and I though it was going to be the usual black race rights shite or whatever, but I was happily surprised. It's actually a really touching story about a Navy diver, the first black diver in fact, Carl Brashear. Cuba Gooding, Jr. is fantastic, his best performance. Robert DeNiro is pretty great too. The female performances are a bit weaker, but Men of Honor is still a really great and important movie.
After showing some remarkable skill in “Boyz N the Hood” and “Jerry Maguire,” Cuba Gooding, Jr. delivers the best work in his young career in this riveting, hugely entertaining drama. He’s a bullheaded blaze of talent with dreams of becoming the best U.S. Navy diver in history.
This true story features Robert DeNiro in his most satisfying performance in years, and the two actors, in their best moments, chew up the celluloid and you are enthralled by their charisma and energy.
A heartfelt, inspiring story, “Men of Honor” is a great movie-going experience.
Quite enjoyable, even if it has the look of a 1990's TV movie and is a rather old fashioned biopic. Cuba Gooding Jr and Robert De Niro are both good in this, but neither are excellent, perhaps due to a slightly lacklustre script. Considering the real life story on which it is based is quite amazing, it is a shame they did not do anything that new or interesting with it.
On a side note, the female supporting characters (the wives of De Niro and Gooding) are very clichéd and are mostly irrelevant. It could have been interesting to see more of how the hardships these men faced affected their personal lives.
Decent enough, but not amazing.
Really, quite brilliant. The stuff about how the Navy is so awesome made me roll my eyes at times, but both Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding, Jr. easily made me disregard this right after. Pretty fucking awesome scenes from both men, especially when they were both in it.
Hal Holbrook as the commanding officer with amaxophobia was really good. He was a damn good antagonist, it's a shame he wasn't around during the second half of the movie.
Such a great story, based loosely on a true story, and one that makes me cry several times. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Robert De Niro are both excellent, and Charlize Theron has a good supporting role, too.
Last time I watched it was on DVD.
I've easily seen this film 20 times.
"Goddammit Cookie, move your ass, I want my TWELVE!"
An inspiring story, Men of Honor had great writing and some really cool suspenseful scenes. The film's underwater scenes were great but the film suffered from a lead that didn't always bring his A game. Robert DeNiro was great but Charlize Theron's role was annoying. So Cuba Gooding Jr., take this note, stick to the comedic supporting roles!
De Niro plays like a robot - too much patriotic shit and the wrong actors!
Carl Brashear: Forgive me sir, but to me, the Navy isn't a business. It's an organization of people who represent the finest aspects of our nation. We have many traditions. In my career, I have encountered most of them. Some are good, some not so good. I would, however not be here today were it not for our greatest tradition of all.
Captain Hanks: And what would that be, Chief Brashear?"
Carl Brashear: " Honor, sir"
Penso que este excerto do filme diz tudo!!!
Great film which i have seen before and can still enjoy today. C G Junior is just phenomenal in his role and De Niro offers him an amazing opposite....
Best single scene in movie history.

An on-going collection of the worst films ever made. Even the ones that are so fucking bad, they're not worthy…
A film is always improved by a helicopter explosion. Here are all the films I know of with at least…
