I have not read good things about this movie. Typical Hollywierd Leftist anti-war stuff from what I understand.

And is it me or does Jake Gyllenhaal look like Tobey Maguire's brother?

Swofford = assgnat

avoid at all cost, even if it means watching titanic with the lady in your life (at least that way you can get some couch loving).

The book sucked. Swofford is a huge whiny ass.

The Hollywierd movie version will suck even worse.

If you need any more reason to avoid it, the NY Times loves to quote him.

You know your gonna watch it. It's a movie for Christ sake, why do you let someone's politics affect you? I watch movies to be entertained; I never take a message from them. That's for the weak-willed, the minions. I just want to watch it for the hell of it. IT IS JUST A MOVIE; screw the asshat that wants to spout his political views. Blackhawk Down had an anti-war message and it is still an excellent movie. They deleted the desecration scene after all.

No, you have it wrong.

Only the weak minded will continue to reward Left Wing Hollywood for making anti war movies. Everytime you buy a ticket or rent a DVD you give money to Hollywood.

BHD showed the stupidy of Clinton's dirty little war and the courage of the Rangers that fought it.

Tell that to Goebbels, Riefenstahl, Vertov, and Eisenstein.

He was on NPR when his book was first released a couple years ago. It sounded very grim.

Saw the books author on the TV talk shows and he came off as an anti military pussy.

Point of fact. Bush sent the Marines to Somalia in December, before Bubba took office.

The book was a waste. Swofford, if honest, has some serious issues.
