    Hurt Locker was critically acclaimed and won 6 Academy Awards including best picture.

    Stop Loss was made for the MTV audience.

    Again, a movie that brought attention to something that needed to be talked about at the time.

    It is simple and not complex, it was okay.


    Not sure how Jarhead is unenjoyable.
    I agree it tried really hard to be something that it wasn't but it was still good.


    Just tried naming movies not mentioned.

    Everyone likes Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan and so on. How are we going to discuss those?

    Jar Head absolutely sucked.

    The Hurt Locker was great. I don't think it was the best movie of the year though. That distinction belonged to Inglorious Basterds, but a movie like that will never win Best Picture.

    FMJ did kick much ass. Love that movie. Favorite part is when he finds the asian chick sniper.. I wonder, was that supposed to be Apache, The female sniper who would skin her kills?


    Carlos Hathcock put an end to that *****. GG Marines. Too bad the military screwed one of the greatest heroes of the Vietnam war out of his pension. Pathetic. 2 more weeks and he would have had 20 years. Instead, they discharged him because they found out he had MS.

    Sometimes I really, really regret my time spent in the Army. Met a lot of amazing guys though.
