Yeah, that part is a real emotional roller coaster.

 

I love the dark tone in this movie. It really contrasts from the usual war film, in the way that it doesn't glorify what the soldiers do in war. They're not all "brothers", and aren't all there to be heroes and fight for freedom.

 

Also, it introduced us to R. Lee Ermey.

Fantastic movie. A thrilling journey from basic training to the battlefield. Awesome characters, great story. Very atmospheric climax, love the ending where they're singing, and it fades to black. Paint It Black during the end credits is genius.

 

If you liked this movie, I reccommend Platoon and who could forget Apocalypse Now?

That's what made his character the best character in the movie.

 

 

great movie, very different kind of war movie like Apocalypse Now and Platoon. One of my favorite war movies.

 

Oh and if you want to get technical, Apocalypse Now was the movie that introduced us to R. Lee Ermey. He only had like a line, and was in a helicopter, but still.

Yes I agree that R. Lee Ermey's performance is terrific. And that movie freaking rocks.

 

"Whatever you do, Private Pyle, DON'T fall down! That would break my f*cking heart!"

 

"Did your parents have any children that lived? Well, I bet they regret that."

 

"What is this Mickey Mouse sh*t? What are you two animals doing in my beloved head? Why is Private Pyle out of his bunk after lights out? Why is Private Pyle holding that weapon? Why are you not stomping Private Pyle's guts out?"

Apocalypse Now, yeah I've never got the ending to that film. From watching 191928 times and seeing on tv I just can't get it. monocle.gif

My favorite line was from R. Lee Ermey.

 

"You had best unf*ck yourself, before I unscrew your head, and sh*t down your neck!"

 

biggrin.gif The rest of the movie was really good. I liked the movie icon14.gif

R. Lee Ermey made the movie what it is. I never get tired of watching the first half.

 

"Tonight, you pukes will sleep with your rifle. You will give your rifle a girl's name, because this is the only pussy you people are going to get. Your days of finger banging ol' Mary Jane Rottencrotch, through her purty pink panties, are OVER!"

"Private Pyle I'm gonna give you three seconds; exactly three f*cking seconds; to wipe that stupid looking grin off your face or I will gouge out your eyes and skull-f*ck you! ONE! TWO! THREE!"

lol, all this throwing quotes around brings back some memories I had from seeing it biggrin.gif. I found the suffering of Private Pyle particularly humorous, probably because at the time I saw Full Metal Jacket, I'd been watching Law and Order: Criminal Intent on TV for a fair while - it's ironic that he's such a hard-arse in Law and Order and such a loser in Full Metal Jacket tounge.gif.

 

I think though that this is definitely one of Kubrick's better films - wow, that guy is whacked! Anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about, I'll just direct you to A Clockwork Orange tounge.gif.
