Me too, prefer reading, and when they make a film from a book, mostly the book is better than the film.

On a personal note these were the best war movies ever made:
Apocalypse Now (1979)
Heartbreak Ridge (1986) Eastwood is always a badass. Improvise, Adapt, Overcome.
Full Metal Jacket (1987) (Absolutely realistic and most comprehensive basic training endurance)
Hurt Locker (2008)
We Were Soldiers (2002) You want to know what it was like? That was exactly what it was like.
Ia Drang Valley, known as the "Valley of Death. I was on another mission in and around Nam when that was taking place.
Platoon (1986) (another real one)
Blackhawk Down (2001) (one of many unfortunate mistakes.)
Lone Survivor (2013)(Brilliant)
Saving Private Ryan (1998)(Hitting the beach? Exactly.)
American Sniper (2015)(Only one of thousands of personal struggles encountered in war.)
My favorite? All of these and many not listed like 10 Part series Band of Brothers,

Sgt. Maj. Basil L. Plumley in We Were Soldiers was real and did so much more than that.

Kingsman: The Secret Service
I found it amusing (the church fight was intense).

Jupiter Ascending
Meh.
They overdid the "Super Mario" action in the collapsing complex scene.

Star Wars VII
OK, but it was (too) obviously written with sequels in mind.
The super weapon wasn't properly explained either.

Maybe it was the cinema, but a lot of the scenes didn't seem to be focussed properly.
My friend and I watched the standard (2D) version, maybe it is supposed to be watched in 3D.

Oorah (Marines)


My first boat. The boat I qualified on, (USS Perch APSS-313).

Quote:
The 1st Amphibious Reconnaissance Company, FMFPAC can be credited with the introduction of "Ooh-rah!" into the Marine Corps in 1953, shortly after the Korean War[citation needed]. Recon Marines served aboard the USS Perch (ASSP-313), a WWII-era diesel submarine retrofitted to carry Navy Underwater Demolition Team and Recon Marines. Whenever the boat was to dive, the 1MC (PA system) would announce "DIVE! DIVE!", followed by the sound of the diving klaxon: "AHUGA!" In 1953 or 1954, while on a conditioning run, former Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps John R. Massaro, while serving as company Gunnery Sergeant of 1st Amphibious Reconnaissance Battalion, simulated the "Dive" horn sound "AHUGA!" as part of the cadence. Legend has it, he took it with him when he went to serve as an instructor at the Drill Instructor school at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. He there passed it on to the Drill Instructor students and they, in turn, passed it on to their recruits where it eventually and naturally became a part of the Recon cadence, and thereafter infiltrated Recon Marine lexicon.[3] Over time, "AHUGA!" morphed into the shorter, simpler "Ooh Rah!" Today, the official Marine Corps Training Reference Manual on the history of Marine Recon is titled "AHUGA!

Screen doors on a submarine?

“Hooah” is considered conventional Army slang but the Ranger community just never picked it up.
I never heard it through the '60's. My team and I never smoked pot in the jungle. WORD!
