Jarhead (2005)
Anyone see the brand new teaser trailer? It was released on the net on Friday and I saw it with Four Brothers this weekend. Also, I heard it can be seen with showtimes of The Great Raid.

By now, I must have seen the teaser 10 times. Now, I'm not a fan of war films (for personal reasons, and no I'm not anti-Bush), in fact, I've only seen We Were Soldiers, but the teaser blew me away. With such a stellar cast of Jamie Foxx, Jake Gylenhaal, Peter Saragard, Chris Cooper, and more names, along with Sam Mendes as director, it looks like any movie fan can anticipate this film.

Now, I understand the Oscar buzz it has already been recieving and in my opinion, it and The New World are the two front runners so far. Watch that teaser now, if you haven't yet.

PS - Notice how I finally got that damn avatar to work. Very Happy

The trailer looks like a long gloryfying ad for new recruits.

The movie is the complete opposite.

Hmmmm, I always notice that movies based on subjects that are still being played out in real life usually suck.

Although Eliason, if you're looking to broaden your horizon's a bit, check out HBO's Band of Brothers. That's top notch. Very Happy

There's a lot of anti war movies going around, it's strange because you have Fox banging on about how important the war in Iraq is etc.

Yet Stealth and now Jarhead are being made and are anti war, with Americans being the baddies.

It seems that there seems to be a battle in Hollywood when it comes to war now, unlike the 70s where nearly every film was anti war, or a statement against America’s involvement in Vietnam.

I just saw the commerical. I don't think it can win for best picture. Maybe best actor and director though

The director already got his Oscar, I'm sick of the same people winning over and over. This film is based on the FIRST gulfwar, by the way. I don't see how it could possibly be any better than Three Kings.

Thanks very much, Tony.

If you'll check out my new movie site, you'll be able to see the same picture with a cool black banner around it, like Jonny's latest avatar (which is awesome, by the way, Jonny Very Happy ). Just click my "Homepage" button.

But do that sometime on Friday. I think today's damn Bandwidth just expired...
