THE POINT AT WHICH I STOPPED READING: From the national greatness evangelicals at World magazine:

Jarhead (rated R) follows a group of Marines from boot camp to Operation Desert Storm, where they are supposedly traumatized for life, even though they never go into combat. The book the movie is based on, a memoir by Anthony Swofford, is labeled nonfiction. If this portrait of Marine life is factual, it still distorts the truth with what it leaves out. Jarhead drains the military life of any kind of honor, patriotism, faith, and virtue—leaving only bad language, filthy minds, and brutal behavior. [had enough?]

Truth to tell, I'm surprised I made it that far.
