TheRedArchive needs help
With 700,000+ posts and 16,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 20-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.

Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained a lot of knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you, and I wish you all a successful 2021 and a good luck with achieving your goals and dreams!

I'll start: Wanted, where James McAvoy goes from anxiety ridden office worker to shining star in a fraternity of assassins.

Breaking Bad kinda has Walter be a little bitch at the beginning then he gets more and more ruthless and doesn't give a fuck anymore over time.

[–]ZodiacK923 points24 points  (2 children) | Copy

Dude breaking bad is a prime example of beta to alpha. You can see how his wife treats him once she can see the literally change in Walter

[–]alphabachelor3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

God, I hate Skyler. Such a cunt.

[–]ZodiacK95 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Who the fuck didn't I was waiting for Walter to dump her ass when he started to get big in the drug game, but he was way to invested into her. And TRP always says never be more invested in her than she is you.

[–]sihitu123-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

lol no, Walter was always a lil bitch. At best he was a genius beta. Honestly can't understand how people enjoyed the few last seasons. Oh "Say my name!" so badass, not it isnt get back to cooking else I bust cap in yo ass.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Not sure if we watched the same show.

[–]1jacques_cousteau00756 points57 points  (2 children) | Copy

Fight club

[–]lululenox24 points25 points  (1 child) | Copy

"All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not." Tyler Durden is probably the most alpha character in cinematic history.. annnd i've broken rule no.1 goddamnit

[–]Redshoryuken3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Rule #1 was meant to be broken.

[–]Heathcliff-- points points [recovered] | Copy

Whiplash.

It's all about father figures.

[–]DiggerClam8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

An insanely good movie.

[–]nisocaniso points points [recovered] | Copy

american beauty

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (1 child) | Copy

I remember analyzing it for school and interpreting it as man rebelling against societal emasculation and my teacher rejecting it and saying that its just an abandonment of responsibility on his part.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

yes but from what I remember at the end of the film he learns that fulfilling that responsibility of a family was greater than short term pleasure he got from doing stupid shit.

[–]revosfts1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Came here to say this.

[–]west3rn1deals39 points40 points  (6 children) | Copy

Limitless

[–]_JustASnowFlake_10 points11 points  (3 children) | Copy

I watch Limitless to give me a motivational boost.

While the main idea is a drug, the concepts I have applied many times over.

Fitness, learning, focus, fun, staying calm in an emotional situation etc

Sadly the TV show was just a money making reality scam.

[–]1jacques_cousteau0074 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Lol why would a guy who can do anything work for the Feds

[–]INTJokes2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I only watched the first few episodes and then got sick of it, but he seemed like he definitely wasn't as smart as Bradley Cooper was in the movie.

[–]west3rn1deals1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah the tv show was almost like milking a moose for me. For the most part i always watched it as a reference for that feeling of clarity he would get.

[–]hashtagpls5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

i'd agree...except he takes back a girl who dumped him when he was down. He could've gotten any babe once he was successful he didn't need to go back to her.

[–]west3rn1deals0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well it is hollywood

[–]1Terminal-Psychosis17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

The Count of Monte-Cristo. The book is much better of course.

I prefer the old movie from 1975, but the 2002 remake wasn't bad.

[–]Thecman506 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Must watch here is School for Scoundrels. Just the class scenes anyway

[–]Toolazy2work1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Just rewatched. Jon heder is such a turd who can't act. Only downside to this movie.

[–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

Thief (1994)

Story of a boy in post war Russia who starts off idealizing his mother's boyfriend as a father figure. But eventually realizes that he's a self serving scumbag.

You can watch it on YouTube

[–]War2kali points points [recovered] | Copy

Thief (1994)

the thief (Vor) 1997

[–]Endorsed Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes

[–]TryhardPantiesON4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Tom Hanks in Cast Away, even thou he has oneitis till the end of the movie, you can still learn a few lessons on self reliance.

[–]blackestpill10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

Gran Torino 2008

[–]throwout27844 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Honestly, the Asian actors in that movie couldn't act to save their lives. Some of the worst/cheesiest lines were delivered by them

[–]JackGetsIt0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This was such a damn good movie. Underrated.

[–]TheJCR3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Why hasn't anybody mentioned:

The Wolf of Wall Street

War Dogs

Limitless

[–]1RedPillFusion3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon.

Come at me bro.

[–]Sensei_Hensei3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Jack him up baby...dont hurt that face baby

[–]1RedPillFusion2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Mah nigga

Paul Blart Mall Cop

[–]-ATLAS-_2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Is this real? Haven't watched that movie and not sure if this is a joke.

[–]Zen-ArtOfShitposting1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Just a shitty meme

[–]MuhTriggersGuise2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Evil Dead. Ash starts as the loving boyfriend, but when his girlfriend becomes a deadite, he doesn't think twice about decapitating her. Got to look out for #1.

[–]goudarziha2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Crazy Stupid Love

[–]-ATLAS-_1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Kinda, except for the ending which it doubled back down on blue.

[–]-ATLAS-_2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

  • Any movie that starts with Arnold Schwarzengger putting like pizza in a blender and being sad.
  • Fight club.
  • American Beauty.
  • Batman (Chris Nolan trilogy, first one, literally from "victim" mindset to tyrant mindset, and then again in the third one of going from alpha back to his old ways for a girl, and then having to do it all over again but his time for himself).
  • rocky
  • many others, pretty sure this question has been asked a few times.

[–]Occams_Stubble4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hudson in Aliens.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Innerspace is a fun campy 80's movie

[–]CMDaccounting0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Love don't cost a thing

[–]1oldredder0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'd say there are NONE, it doesn't happen at all.

I'm a little stuck on Evil Dead. Might just be right about Ash.

[–]Ou-tis0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Tropa de elite (or Elite squad in english)

[–]JackGetsIt0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Office Space.

bonus: Where the Red Fern Grows

[–]un_tiralovia0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Even if the thread is old, I'll add The Wedding Ringer.

[–]bobberkarl-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

The get down first 3 episodes.

[–]shadowsofparadise[🍰] -1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Never Back Down

[–]Pelikahn-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

Not really a beta to alpha movie, but I really like Jean Valjean in Les Miserable. The newest version is great.
