Full Metal Jacket was on sky earlier and it was kinda weird watching it in the middle of the day, as I've only ever seen it before late night on tv... anyway it got me thinking that in Vietnam there's loadsa hookers but there's nothing like that in Iraq and Afghan ??

Whether a beaver has hair or not, a beaver it still is.

FULL Metal Jacket

I watched this movie some years ago. I liked the patter that the US Marine Drill Instructors use. I have the music from it as I find it good to train to.

Another good movie that I enjoyed was Heart Break Ridge, starring Clint eastwood.

Anyone seen this?

Cheers

Steve

Yeah The drill instructor says some great lines in Full Metal Jacket.

here's a few of them

Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy *text deleted**text deleted*ing walrus-looking piece of *text deleted**text deleted*! Get the *text deleted**text deleted* off of my obstacle! Get the *text deleted**text deleted* down off of my obstacle! NOW! MOVE IT! I'm going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world! I will motivate you, Private Pyle, IF IT SHORT-*text deleted**text deleted*S EVERY CANNIBAL ON THE CONGO!


Today... is Christmas! There will be a magic show at zero-nine-thirty! Chaplain Charlie will tell you about how the free world will conquer Communism with the aid of God and a few marines! God has a hard-on for marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?



Who said that? Who the *text deleted**text deleted* said that? Who's the slimy little communist *text deleted**text deleted*, twinkle-toed cocksucker down here who just signed his own death warrant? Nobody, huh? The fairy *text deleted**text deleted*ing godmother said it. Out-*text deleted**text deleted*ing-standing. I will PT you all until you *text deleted**text deleted*ing die. I'll PT you until your assholes are sucking buttermilk



I remember heatbreak ridge I watched it along time ago when i was about 9/10 and what I remember the most about the film is the fight between Clint and that massive Swede bloke.

The great thing is about the movie is that the Drill Instructor, was actually a Drill Instructor in the USMC, and improvised his rants.

It's probably the best war film I have ever seen. Although it's not quite as, epic as say Black Hawk Down (huge battle), it cracked me up in the first half, and the second half pretty much highlighted what it would be like in a warzone.

Yeah Full Metal Jacket is my favourite war film, crazy thinkin it's the same age as me.

Black Hawk Down is quality, I just hate that Josh Hartnett guy though.

Just a little bit of info, the hero specialist grimes (played by Ewan McGregor), is a convicted child molester and is serving a 30 year jail sentence.

No before the movie was made, that's why in the film his name is different. In real life he's called Specialist John Stebbins, but the pentagon made them change it to Grime, just in case
