Default Jarhead: Who else is excited?

I'm really excited for this movie, especially since I saw Donnie Darko for the first time last week. Besides that, I haven't seen any other Jake Ghyllenhal (sp?) movies, so I'm not totally sure what to expect. Is anyone as pumped about this as I am?

Sam Mendes (director) is awesome.

I am....but Jake Gyllenhall is not one of the reasons, i have no objections to him, but i don't think he's especially good either.

I predict this will be a terrible movie...but I may be biased, as I have a brother who was a special force marine, and I actually know marines, and I don't think Hollywood's going to do a very good job portraying them (especially with Jake Gyllanhof[sp?] as the lead). Wasn't Jakethebake a marine...what say you?

I'm not pumped up per se. But I am looking forward to it.

any word on what type of bias this movie is going to have? the commercials dont make it very clear (which from an advertising standpoint is a good idea).

Ex-Army, best friend with plenty of marines... I dont watch war movies.

call me a pussy, but that was an all to real thing to me, and Im not a huge fan of watching it.

But if they could finally portray marines for the way they really are, it would be eye-opening, and a good thing.
