A Few Good Men

This is one of my favourite movies ever!

Directed by: Rob Reiner (This is Spinal Tap, Stand by Me, Rumour Has It, The Bucket List)
Written by: Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Charlie Wilson's War)

Kevin Bacon My lover
Funny F*cker
Lots of other marine people

Whats de story loike: Ok so these two marine guys, are on trial for the death of this other marine guy. Was it like an accident or murder?

Duh duhh duhhhhh

Veriew: So these marine guys like kill this other marine guy and Demi thinks it wasn't like them like really killing him but like someone ordered them too, like a "code red". Then Tom is hired to defend the marine guys and Demi is like his legal beeyotch. Throw Funny F*cker in there as well.

It turns out that the marine guy that was killed wanted to be transfered of like the marine base, he even offered information about this other marine guy cause he did something bad. Demi thinks this is like a motive to murdered.

The fillum does like a flash back to Jack, Keifer, and some other talking about what to do with the marine guy cause he's all moany and stuff. The other guy says they should transfer him off the base cause he could be in danger. Jack basically tells him to feck off and tells Keifer to basically whoop his ass.

Then there's all this conspiracy crap about the murder some say he was poisoned some say he wasn't. They marine that killed him claimed that they weren't trying to kill him they just wanted to like train him.

So then my lover is hired to be like the other side in the court room. Him and Tom are like buddies as well. They all meet up in Cuba with Jack and some other people. Keifer tells them that he made an order that the marine wasn't to be hurt. I suspect that he's telling porkies. Jack then says that he made an order for the marine guy to be transfered, we know this is a porkie from the flash back bit....ummmmm whats going on? Then the marine guys that are on trial tell Tom that Keifer ordered a code red. Shit officially hits the fan.

So after loads of crap and stuff they all head to court. Tom enters a plea of not guilty so we know it's gonna get all dramatic and stuff.

In court my lover claims that the marine guy was poisoned Tom says it wasn't and that the two marine guys were ordered to like kill him, more or less. My lover and Tom like question all these witness people and you don't really know where the whole case his going. Tom starts to think they'll loose.

The guy that was in the room during the flash back when Jack told Keifer all the stuff during the flash back tells Tom that the marine guy was never gonna be transfered off the base.

Duh duhh duhhhh!

Some more court stuff happens, movie gets all suspencful and stuff. Note how sexy Keifer can be when he gets pissed off. They lose one of their key witnessesses (look at me sounding all legal and stuff) and Tom gets all freaked out, Demi thinks he should put Jack on the stand and try and get him to confess. If he fecks it all up his like whole career is shot to hell.

Tom sucks it up and decides to put Jack on the stand. Tom does funny Jack impression, bit of a laugh.

The big scene.....

Jack lies and says that he ordered the marine guy to be transfered, Tom calls his bluff, Jack gets all pissed off. If the marine guy was gonna be transfered why wasn't his crap all ready.... Tom basically starts shittin himself

Cue the drama...

Tom: Jack, did you order the Code Red?
Judge Guy: You don’t have to answer that question!
Jack: I'll answer the question!

Jack: You want answers?
Tom: I think I'm entitled.
Tom: I want the truth!
Jack: You can’t handle the truth!

Jack: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Funny F*cker? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for the marine guy, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That the marine guy's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Tom: Did you order the Code Red?
Jack: I did the job I...
Tom: Did you order the Code Red?
Jack: You’re God damn right I did!

Kinda put your foot in it there Jack....

So then he's all arrested and stuff and then the marines guys that are on trial are found guilty and dishonourably discharged from the marines.....

Marine Guy #1: What did we do wrong? We did nothing wrong.
Marine Guy #2: Yeah, we did. We were supposed to fight for the people who couldn't fight for themselves. We were supposed to fight for Willie.

- hee hee hee willie

Verdict: Buy it, you can watch it over and over again and it's still all dramatic all the time. I've seen it so many times that I didn't use the internet for me quotes ha ha ha.
