Act of Valor

By sea, by air, by land, with cheese.


Rod Lott
“Based on real acts of valor,” Act of Valor may prove a better Navy recruitment film than action film in the short term. While not the first movie depicting Navy SEALs doing their thing, it's the first movie to do so starring actual, active-duty Navy SEALs. Seriously — for privacy reasons, their names aren't even in the credits.

Olivia Munn vs. Groupon


Gazette staff
You may recall that when, in Genesis, man was given dominion over the animals, it was so that the beasts could helpeth us till the fields and, yay, that they may danceth under lights and weareth little hats for the amusement of Adam and all his descendants.

Lone Survivor

Peter Berg's Navy SEALs epic reminds us that war is hell while glorifying it, too.


Phil Bacharach
Maybe it really is possible to have your cake and eat it, too. Lone Survivor, a dramatization of a real-life U.S. mission in Afghanistan that went horribly awry, somehow manages to chronicle a massacre of Navy SEALs while simultaneously transforming the experience into a fist-pumping recruitment tool.
