Take away R.Lee Ermey and this film is really bad.  For those of us who lived during the Vietnam film revival and some pretty much all of them in the theater, it was the worst.  You just get beaten over the head with one cliche after another.  


Did the entire Obama administration use their dog's name as their password?

It's hard to even imagine the movie without Ermey.  

 

Btw, this is the story the movie is based on;

Thsts a stupid statement for a couple reasons.
First of all, pvt. Pyle was great too. Secondly you can't just take a character out. It's part of the movie.
I suppose rocky would suck if rocky wasn't in it

Funny how Ermey wasn't even suppose to be in it originally...Was just showing the actors how it was done
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human faceforever.

Nah. This whole movie is awesome and the only reason they are cliches is because of this movie. This movie made the cliches.

This will always be in the holy trinity of war movies with saving private Ryan and the third is up for debate.

I can't think of anyone better to run the country than a reality TV, business mogul blowhard. Apparently, neither could the democrats.

I don't think hollywood would let directors do this kind of stuff anymore.  17 month shoots?  30+ takes for each scene?  
Seems excessive...

A distant 2nd might be "The Deer Hunter", or "Apocalypse Now".

They filmed the boot camp part in England. Takes away the whole battle that goes on with the South Carolina heat and insects. Great movie though.

I loved Apocalypse Now. The movie was just so eerie the whole way through. Brilliant directing imo.

DI:   "What is is recruit?"

 

Me:   "SIR,  I would...."

DI:   "Get the fock out of here with this 'I' shtt"

 

ME:  Walks away in shame.  Does not get to talk for the rest of the focking day.   :overhead:

 

Some here might know what all that means.  HAHA

Yep,  I am pretty sure dude damn near risked his life doing that.

 

This movie does have some amazing charters.  Pyle was great.  Gunny Hartman was great.   Animal Mother was also pretty focking awesome.

Another great half movie. The 2nd half is a snooze fest.

 

First part of this movie was stunning it was so focking close to the real thing.  Hell,  some of the shtt Hartman said in this movie was literally word for word,  right of a drill instructor's mouth from Paris Island.  Not a surprise since Ermey was a real DI,  but sill pretty cool.

 

One of the neatest things I saw was was a bunch of grown men standing around outside in some grass just yelling.

 

I asked the Drill Instructor(By this time,  I was in a place where I could speak freely)  WTF were the doing.   They were practicing yelling at recruits.  LMAO.  It was a sight to behold.
