That's cool... I just saw the model B52 in the sandbox... makes me SOO happy I didn't break it when I backed into it in the studio staging area... [;)]

I'm still waiting to see if they actually used ANY of the props I supplied them... ??

I hate to say it, but so far it looks like feel-good fluff. [:(]

"deadly snipers run & gun" while showing an OpFor running while holding up a SAW (?) in continuous rock & roll...

I'm officially disgusted to have had any realtionship with this.

Pathetic!  That's all I can say.  The whole thing is made out to be like some kind of football game, with scores and cool graphics showing the status.  More propaganda and sly recruiting.  "The jets shoot laser beams at each other so it's like an aerial version of laser tag."

"The aircraft carrier is like the quarterback and the helicopters have to save it from getting blitzed."

The message is clear:  The military is cool and no one really ever gets hurt or killed in faraway lands where they don't belong in the first place.

Sickening.  They try to make soldiers out to be heroes, but instead they end up looking like pro-wrestling or "American Gladiators."

Plus, the camera work and editing was horrible. How many times can they replay the same exact footage?  I've seen student projects with better production values.

Hollywood is imploding.  Our culture is rotten from within.

Sure... the "Host" is a football dude... but why all the football analogies?

Maybe they're trying to put a happy face on Military type activities in the little head of Mr. Joe Sixpack? Why would they want to aim this at Mr. Joe Sixpack anyway ??? He doesn't care about this type of thing...

Lets see.... Mr. J Sixpack now thinks good thoughts about soldiers running around shooting people and breaking things (in HIS neighborhood??) ... He now thinks that a "sniper" is some yahoo running around spraying in full auto...

"Tanks rush through town, crushing the enemies resistance"... by crushing their rusted out getaway cars at 4 miles per hour??

"But his courage is no match for a 50 caliber machinegun"... when they're flipping back and forth between an M16 and an M60?

I can't quite come up with what part of this I dislike the most... [:(]
