    I saw the movie and I liked it a lot. I have no idea how similar it is to the real thing (yet), but I thought it was good. I was reading reviews on Amazon and people were saying how the movie is a disgrace to Marines because it makes them look like immature perverts. Marines of OT, what do you think of the movie?

    Depends. It's probably accurate to the author's experience. Jarhead touches on the basics, and that's all that matters to the public PR. There's a lot of shit that is off IMO, but there's similarities that make me go :mamoru: .

    That's because we are.

    The movie doesn't even hit the time of the iceberg on the level of pervertedness. You will see some of the most gay, nasty, perverted, disgusting, and immature shit in the Corps that you can't find anywhere else, and it's all totally acceptable.

    When we were in the field last week, 3 Marines were laying in a hooch all spooning, one of them is holding a playboy, the other is holding a flashlight, and the other is jacking off. When he's finished, they switch. This went on for about an hour.

    Nope, it's pretty much accurate.

    When I was just transitioning from the Marines to my civilian job, all the guys I work with thought I was gay because of how comfortable I was with whipping my nuts out every chance I got.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think it's hilarious to make another guy see my nuts :x:

    Like its been said before , its got the general concept right + a little hollywood , maybe some exageration here and there. The gay shit is all true though , you will learn to accept it too.

    i've been in 7 years, gone on various deployments, been in the field for weeks and never have i heard or seen anything so flagarently gay :coolugh:

    seriously, have you ever considered that its possible that you might actually be gay, and that its not a grunt thing?

    bored at work my buddy whipped his sack out and another Marine threatened to cut em off next time he did it. He did it 5 minutes later but no follow through with the cutting. I gave 2nd Marine a hardcore speech about how he needs to be a man of his word or we wont have any respect for him. 3rd Marine says he will draw a smiley face with a sharpie next time said nuts are whipped out. Nuts get whipped out and 3rd Marine draws the best smiley face he could on the sack. The Sack-sharpie is then used to draw a moustache on 2nd Marine while sleeping. Thats just the way we roll.

    I am not even in the Marines and I still liked the movie. I was hoping that my CO didn't get any ideas to make us play football in MOPP gear. Fuck that stuff.

    ACCORD diaf...

    Your av continues to piss me off, as you have not killed anything, and you most likely never will.

    You are young and should learn: there are some things that you should not share with other people. You are starting to remind me of WRX>Mustang...
    It is not ok to masturbate in front of other men, especially that close.

    Regardless.... If it happened, it happened. Accord simply seems to be the messenger not the participant.

    Wait.... Hey Accord, how the fuck do you know this went down ?? Were you waiting for your turn ?? :hsugh:

    No movie is ever going to touch up on what it really is like in the fleet. Each Marine will have their own unique experience. Now if this is a war or boot camp scenario, sure.. you may get a lot of "Yeah, it was just like that," or "WTF was the director smoking, etc.."

    Personally, I've had my "OORAH OORAH" days and my "Fuck it how much longer till I EAS" days..

    One thing I have learned from the Marine Corps is that you need to take care of yourself because every single motherfucker out there is all about ME ME ME and what they can benefit out of it. There is no "brotherhood." It's all smoke and mirrors. The reason why everyone thinks high of Marines is because they do a good job keeping all the bullshit internal.

    :ugh: I've been in 4 and a half years and I've never seen or heard of any shit like that, and this happened because you were in the field for a few days, maybe weeks. What the fuck are you guys going to resort to when you get in country and are away from pussy for a couple months.

    I wasn't a participant, just a witness.
