Why do Marines hate this movie?

My old health teacher was well he still is a Marine and I see him in the weight room and I asked him if he saw it and he said yes and he didn't like it. Never got to ask him which part he didn't like.
He did like the movie Full-Metal Jacket.

A lot of people said it made Marines look like assholes. Well I don't think you need a movie to do that.

because he apparently was a whiny little bitch, a "the military ruined my life" type and the Marines are anything but that.

No he said he loved being in the marines and he said that after high school everyone should be forced to do atleast two years.

I didn't see the movie, but I read the book.

Swofford is a whining pussy who seemed unable to fit in well in the Marine Corps. He seems to blame the Marine Corps for everything that hasn't gone well for him in his life, while bragging about being a shitbird.

Reading his story reminds you of the stories of guys that spent months in heavy combat and came back changed for the worse. Except Swofford never mentions any combat in his book. He simply chose to associate with the biggest fuckups he could find.

Nevermind the fact that he tells military urban legends as if they had happened to him, even though they have been floating around the Marine Corps since before his grandfather was born.

Only the lifer types do

It is a good movie IMO

I just watched this tonight...........It wasn't the best Marine movire, but not the worst either......I was expecting something totally different though.......but there wasn't much Marine Corps action in the 1st Gulf War, maybe we need a movie about the Race to Baghdad between the Army and the Marines in 2003......that would be interesting.....

I've seen it, didn't read the book so I can only comment on the movie. The movie was so so as entertainment. It did however depict pretty accurately what Marines are like. You have career Marines (the Staff Sgt.) you have lifers, the asshole Major. You have leaders, the Regimental CO. You have malcontents, the Texas boy who was bitching about fighting for oil and refused to talk to the reporters. You have fucking dumbass psychos like the knuckledhead who was playing with the dead raghead. You have the immature, easily manipulated followers, the kid who took the Christmas eve watch and set the Humvee on fire. You have some good solid Marines who love the Corps, the Cpl. who got turned down for re enlistment. You have guys who are making themselves a better life, the hispanic Marines. You have the guys who have no idea why the joined the Corps, the main character.

The depiction of fucked up or unreliable equipment, especially at critical times was pretty spot on in my experience

I never met a Marine that didn't bitch about something. Generally speaking, the more a Marine bitched, the more content and mentally stable he was. When a guy stopped bitching about everything or began focussing one only one complaint, there was real potential for a problem.

When I was in most Marines hated other Marines. The only Marines that had their shit together or that could be trusted, were your closest buddies. Everyone else was an asshole, a shitbird or fuckup. Or worse, a lifer. Airwingers hated Grunts, Grunts hated Airwingers. 03's were real Marines and hated anyone who wasn't in a rifle platoon. Recon were real Marines and hated anyone who wasn't Recon. Everyone hated M.P.'s.
Admin pukes were vile filth that fucked you over every time they audited your SRB. They took leave that you know you didn't use. They fucked up your pay. They fucked you on your cutting score. They fucked with you when you were checking in or checking out. The Career Planner should have had a bounty on his head.

Anyone who had it easier than you was a pogue which in most guys opinions was everyone but you and your best buddies.

Then suddenly it's your EAS. "Fuck the suck" you tell yourself. Only somehow, your time in the USMC has become the time of your life. Now every Marine is your brother and nobody better ever bad mouth a Marine in your presence. Now you seek out former Marines because they are the only civlians who have got their shit in one bag. Suddenly you love the suck. It's Semper Fidelis to the grave.

Oh man, you ask yourself "Why did I ever get out?"

WOW That was... perfect! Nice.

Intresting to note that after 10 years (Sukebe got out 10 years before I went in) the Corps is pretty much still the same.
