Even though the Hurt Locker was NOT acurate. I thought the movie was GREAT! Hollywood has to put their spin on things(usually very liberal) to make the civilians want to see it.
Did you hate Avatar because it wasn't real?
What about Star Wars?
Movies are not real.
Jarhead was the MOST boring movie ever!
the problem is that they are trying
to portray real life. Military guys get upset about this stuff because all you civilians (You civilians sounds funny hahahaa i will be one soon
)are ever going to know is what you see in those movies and no matter how much you realize yourself that it is a movie and probably fabricated to some degree, most of the things you think about us military guys is going to be based off of those stupid movie inaccuracies.
Thats what gets us upset. just think, for how many people are the movies thier only experience with military?? think about the thoughts and preconceptions that will be developed in thier mind after watching one of these inaccurate movies?? Millions of people are being fed a bunch of bullcrap and they dont have a choice but to base their thoughts about us on a movie.
Now that is different if you have friends in the military or have had some experience with it then that can counter some of this crap but that is hardly ever the case, its just Joe Schmoe out there watching a flick for the evening. I wanted to punch the person responsible for Jarhead because you create an ignorant person when it comes to thier feelings for the military if you create something like that for them to watch.
Dont get me started on stop loss!!! ahahahaha that movie was funny because of how much of a joke it was
