Went and saw JarHead with revmischa and erinearl last night at midnight at the Metreon. Was good, wasn't sure what to expect so it was worth my time. Really wanted to see it since the author of the book that the movie was based on, and was the main character, spoke at my school a few years ago. Interesting movie, fairly upbeat, though also graphic and thinky. Worth seeing, doesn't necessarily need to be in the theatre though. Normally hate movie reviews, but this one is good.

I enjoyed it. The basic training (beginning) was bullshit and set a bad tone in my mind - probably a take on FMJ, but it grew in realism as the movie went on. His account on daily life of the military is pretty accurate, giving the public look at what really happens.

One inaccuracy that kept pissing me off is that he kept calling his Staff Sergeant "sir".
