Full Metal Jacket...

I went to see Jarhead this weekend. Hated it. But it made me remember how much I LOVE Full Metal Jacket. Here's what I tell my six year old, which is paraphrased from FMJ.

"Son, all I've ever asked of you is that you obey my orders as you would the word of God."

Classic.

Sometimes it takes seeing something really bad to recall why something else is really good.

i expressed a similar sentiment that i think you may have in another message board, which was that had tedford put levy in sooner we might be in a lot better position.

Justin: You are so right. And boy, FMJ should be played right next to Jarhead so folks can compare.

Seth: Go Bears!

Kemp: Private Pyle was the classic fuck up. But what a great character!

Doc: Check Jarhead out on HBO

Humanity: There are so many great lines from FMJ that I can't choose just one. The door gunner who was shooting Vietnamese...

Question: How can you shoot women and children?

Door gunner: Easy, you just don't leand them as much. Ain't war hell?
