By Bryan Reesman
Sometimes you want to watch a sophisticated, literate film about the emotional quandaries of an upper-class British family. Sometimes you want to be absorbed in a heartwarming tale of star-crossed lovers seeking to make their romance work out. And sometimes you just want to watch crap get blown up.
There have been plenty of great action movies made over the years that combine a solid story with fantastic testosterone sequences.

With "Battleship" looming on the horizon, MSN takes a look at 10 kick-ass movies that are big, loud and generally dumb. But we love watching them anyway.
