How great is it when Ewan McGregor asked George Clooney in the beginning of the film , “whats a Jedi Warrior?”. Do you think that’s some type of easter egg or it just happens to be a coincidence. I mean come on! He’s Obi-Wan Kenobi! I can’t imagine the cast not having some fun on set durning the filming of that scene. Anyways, really great movie regardless, a definite must see if ya haven’t!

This is a unique, first-rate Military Satire, the best Military comedy since Buffalo Soldiers.

Fun movie. I remember reading somewhere that the movie itself is a propaganda film.

The movie makes the military more inept and silly seeming rather than scary evil which is what those MKUltra experiments were.

Interesting, I served in the Navy for 6 years, and had a lot of fun! There were some sketchy moments I had during my time in, but for the most part it was some of the best times of my life.

What does that have to do with the US military being the most evil organization in the world?

It was based on the Stargate Project: "a secret U.S. Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland... to investigate the potential for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications."

One of the most interesting things is not that it was funded, but that it was funded for 25 years.
