You are all on notice:

Until you see this movie, we're not friends.

It's that good.

Go see it.

I'll see it just because of how bad ass Kyle was for real, anyone who doesn't is a terrorist sympathizer, commie, probably worse than Hitler and surely sucks dicks for pennies.

So, basically, Jesse Ventura.

I love seeing the leftist trolls falling all over themselves on social media to try and post the most vile, anti-American crap they can about this movie, especially when it's obvious they haven't seen it.

It doesn't glorify the war in Iraq in any way whatsoever.

My leftist sister read the book and then saw an advance screening as part of her work at Slate.

It is really petty and childish when people throw a fit when they are shown an idea they don't agree with. Poking holes in their little bubble will be good for them.

I don't care if it glorifies the war or not, I'm flat out not interested in a movie with that kind of title and plot setting.
We get enough military propaganda through Michael Bay and others, don't need the more obvious kind too.

All of this. It's actually so pathetic to read that I ain't even mad.

You know what, since I do consider myself something of a movie buff, I WILL actually watch it once I can grab it online somewhere (as an utterly leftist and anti-war kinda dude) and give you my honest feedback about it.

NOPE'd when Clint Eastwood's name popped up. I think I'll just read about whoever this sniper is.

Saw it. Read his book. Didn't like either.

Movie was boring and was only made to make easy "HURR PATRIOTISM" money.

Getting someone else to write about your heroic adventures of picking off goat herders from several hundred yards away for picking up a rifle and/or "bomb-making parts" (bits of scrap electronics that nobody could use) that you left out in the open as bait just seems unprofessional.


Nobody can verify Kyle's kill count because the only one counting was him.


Not going to touch the Ventura vs Kyle crap. They're both shitbags, but seeing as Ventura won what is easily the most difficult to win kind of civil lawsuit, I think I'll believe him and cease caring.

He's a shitbag conspiracy theorist with nothing better to do, so I presume so.

I remember seeing the preview of that movie and it didn't interest me at all.
