We haven't seen the movie Jarhead in our household, but we do gleefully work the phrase "I hear their bombs and I'm afraid" into conversation as often as we can. I've had zero interest in seeing the movie, until I read this review at Cold Fury. If you've already seen the movie, definitely go over and read both the review and the comments.

Oh, and how ridiculous was it when I saw a soldier on Law and Order call another soldier a "jarhead"? Sheesh, google could've helped them avoid that bonehead script gaff.

Yeah, I don't really have anything good or bad to say about Jarhead. I kind of felt "Meh" about it.

But you know what I really love? The Halloween graphics over at Cold Fury. Hilarious.

I thought Jarhead was adequate at best. It just wasn't very good storytelling, and that's the worst thing I can say about a film.

Now, Black Hawk Down on the other hand - I just saw that the other day, and I was reminded of how well shot and edited it is. I think it really manages to show the Hell that a soldier confronts, and how fucking badass they are in response to said Hell. The film reminds me of Sarah. It's Anti-War but Pro-military.

Bill Clinton pulled out after the battle.

I hate that you can't read the previous sentence without thinking of Bill Clinton pulling out of... you know...

Kool-aid anyone?
