Great clip, especially Jamie Foxx's line at the end . . .

Yes, he nailed a good line. I'll probably go see it.

I was just about to say, anybody read the book 'Jarhead' by Anthony Swafford? Here's a review of it http://www.simonsays.com/content/content.cfm?isbn=0743535391&sid=33 (the book)

I loved Jarhead, the book. It kept my attention throughout the entire book. Good reading!

Before I became a Marine, I loved movies like this. Now that I am a Marine, Hollywood versions of the military almost **** me off in their inaccuracies...no matter how insignificant.

I can't stand it when actors playing enlisted members of the military dont give the proper respect to officers, or say things like "sarge" and " O- three hundred hours". It even makes me a little mad that a millionare, civilan actor is saying "oo-rah".

I just think movies could be just as entertaining without all that flashy, fake, hollywood crap they jam in there just to sell tickets. And whats with that song in the background?

"Jarhead" was a very good book. It wasn't even pro-corps necessarily. I'll be interested to see how close to the book the movie is. I'm not going to hold my breath. -PFC Miller
