Movies

For those of you who don’t know, women can be very neurotic. I’ve found that it is never a good idea to watch of movie with my girlfriend that involves war or the military in any manner. Here is a list of movies that you should never let your girlfriend watch if you are in the military.

The Edge of Love

Apocalypse Now

Full Metal Jacket

Saving Private Ryan

Flags of Our Fathers

Platoon

Jarhead

Tiger Land

Independence Day

Red Dawn

The Fast and the Furious (I just added this movie because it is shit.)

28 Weeks Later

Universal Soldier

Stripes

Forest Gump

Broken Arrow

Rambo

Commando

The Notebook

Predator

Even as someone with friends in the military I try to stray away from those kind of movies.

I watched the expendables with my girlfriend, she didn't like it, well she hates firearms. I don't like them either IRL, but those are just movies right?

I thought these movies are one of reasons for women to fall for military men..Why do wanna spoil tht?

We can be very neurotic? Well, if my partner is a fireman, the last think I want is to be reminded constantly that he might die on duty, so I guess it makes sense that someone might want to avoid those kinds of movies.
