08:57 pm - Jarhead Saw Jarhead - it left me cold. I was a sailor, not a Marine. Maybe there's something there that'll resonate with Marines. But there wasn't anything in it for me. Seemed like trying too hard and not knowing anywhere near enough.
There were pretty much two good things in that movie: that line (which was followed up immediately by something very bullshitty that spoiled it) and Kanye West's "Jesus Walks", which was prominently played in trailers for the movie but wasn't played in the movie itself until the end credits.
I dunno man. It's like the movie tried to be Full Metal Jacket reloaded for Desert Storm and just failed miserably.
Doom dissapointed me insomuch as they totally made up a story for the movie. It only loosely resembled the game. There were marines on Mars. The computer images were pulled from Doom III. There was a BFG.
That's about it.
I'm only mildly interested in seeing King Kong, but that's probably because I'm only mildly interested in King Kong in general.
