Well-written, and flaming.

I think the way Mike puts it: "How come no one speaks up about the shit this dork shovels out....dissing a movie he doesn't plan to see and in the process insulting the troops he pretends to admire?" is the most rational and logic response to someone like this who has no idea what the boy scouts would be like, let alone war. Any self respecting critic should always see the movie/book/production/exhibition rather than protesting to see it - because an ill informed point of view is by far the most dangerous.

Despite inaccuracies (and what movies about war doesn't have them), I found this movie very entertaining and somewhat refreshing in the way 'Hollywood' portrayed the 'war'. Finally the 'bad guys' were depicted as what they are/were and the American 'spirit' was displayed in a way that pretty much defines the all-American fighting person in times of over-the-top stress.
Let the world see the kind of real fiber they will face should they push the envelope with good 'ol USA! Inaccurate details be damned.

Duffman

Oh...and I almost forgot: Glenn Beck is a big time non-event, along with Rush and the other 'pseudo-patriotic' non-servers.

military and other folks who are getting all contemptuous about the movie becaust the actors are doing the wrong kind of hoorah yell or wearing too recent type uniforms are making asses out of yourselves .....this is not an inhouse military/Army training film.....it's a general release movie... these inaccuracies are of consequence only to some dork playing for big money on a tv trivia show.... get over it...

Beck is getting to be too off the wall to be taken that seriously, unfortunately. He is starting to resemble a counterpoint for the whack jobs on MSLSD. He looks like a grown up version of Ralphie in Christmas Story.

Bill

Whaddya' expect from a guy who thinks that the 1910 dime, art and sculpture in NY are all indoctrinating our kids to communism.

Geez, watching and listening to this arse-wipe is like playing whack-a-mole.

Bill

Besides, didn't Beck rape and murder a girl back in 1990?

I don't think he did.

I'm just asking the question.

drool

Beck should have a chat with one Lt Suits who thinks the movie is very good

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber

    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
