Does it also include a game where you get to throw oranges and tennis balls at R. Lee Ermey for 20 minutes while he rants at a bunch of extras?

Strangely enough, I came here to see if anyone had a video of that.

They're working on that right after they finish the "Golf Ball Through A Garden Hose" game.

First time I've been tempted to get an iPad.

The very idea has me shiatting Tiffany cufflinks.

How odd -- the wife 'n I watched Platoon and Full Metal Jacket last night. And she's not a war movie fan AT ALL.

I wonder how many of the photos he took while in character during a take? It sorta looks like at least one of the photos might be from the Surfin' Bird scene.

One of the best movies of all time.

D'Onofrio is completely mesmerizing in his performance. Ermey is also outstanding.

In a typical good movie, you get one B+ performance, and a bunch of B and B-. In this one, there are two A+ and a shiat-ton of A and A-. The only crappy performance was the Vietnamese guy who was pimpin' the ho. Modine "A". Rafterman was awesome (except for one sentence where he introduces Joker), Animal Mother was awesome.

Adams: Sir, yes, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: 1800. Engineers. You go out and find mines. Cowboy!
Private Cowboy: Sir, yes, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: 4212, Basic iOS App Development. You gotta be shiattin' me, Joker! You think you're Steve Jobs? You think you're some kinda software engineer?
Private Cowboy: Sir, I studied Objective C in high school, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Jesus H. Christ! You're a killer, not a programmer!

Just watched "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures" a few nights ago. Highly recommended.

It's not just the performances. Kubrick gives the same treatment of the barracks as he did the Overlook Hotel. It's filmed like all the air had been sucked out of the room. Creepy in it's own right. Tight, minimal dialogue despite Hartman's screaming. And the combat portion is just a whole different film with its own merits.

BIRD BIRD BIRD, THE BIRD IS THE WORD

SevenizGud: Animal Mother was awesome.


I'm not sure if he was that awesome, or that his character was so emblematic of war. Remember, he was introduced by Alabama Blacksnake as a guy who merely needed to have live grenades thrown at him the rest of his life, once he rotated.

He definitely had a defining quote in the flick though. "Freedom? You think we waste gooks for freedom?...if I'm gonna get my balls blown off for a word, that word is poontang."

I bet if there were some p*ssy up there, you wouldn't need the God mode.

$14.99 for a behind the scenes app? Yikes!

I think that was intentional. Coming off like a cheap used car salesman makes the woman worth nothing, which goes along with the main theme of the movie: dehumanization.

Behind the scenes 'Full Metal Jacket' app? Well, I think I may have seen some pictures of that on tee-vee.

Wow, when i watched The Dark Knight Rises and saw Matthew Modine as Foley, I totally did not even connect him to the Joker in Full Metal Jacket.

What the Fark?

I just figured everyone would know who I was talking about, and it would save me the googling of his actual name.

Maybe we can get married ... but not unless you get your shiat together.

Boys in Co. C also has a great drill sergeant rant.
