cellardoor_reviews "I bet you're the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around. I'll be watching you.” I wouldn’t be doing my duty as a cinephile if I didn’t share with my sisters what is possibly the greatest war film of all time directed by one of the master filmmakers of all time. Stanley Kubrick is a director that you have rematch as much as you can, and the more I watch Full Metal Jacket the more I’m convinced that Kubrick just wanted you to be uncomfortable while watching his films. It’s amazing how wide Kubrick was with the genres he tackled. He worked on horror films, space operas, films set in the future. And the tension in all these films carry on in the war classic Full Metal Jacket. This film stars Matthew Modine, Vincent D’Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey, Arliss Howard, Adam Baldwin, and Dorian Harewood. It follows a recruit as he goes through basic training in the Marine Corps on Parris Island and eventually ends up as a reporter in Vietnam. I’ve always really enjoyed how quick Kubrick throws you into the film. Almost immediately we are introduced to Ermey’s Hartman, who quickly becomes an iconic movie character due to Ermey’s impressive dialogue and his energy that takes over the whole film. It is in this scene that the camerawork flows swiftly to the point where I felt like I was being yelled at with Joker, Cowboy, and the rest of the gang. Matthew Modine plays his part well, but nobody was as memorable as Vincent D’Onofrio in the role of the dimwitted Gomer Pyle. Honestly, every time I see this character go through hell and come out on the other side, it shocks me to my core and not many performances can do that. His face in the notorious bathroom scene almost gave me nightmares, but Kubrick is so good at doing that for you. The whole first half of the film is fantastic: minimal sets, great character study, and a main evil antagonist for the whole world to hate. Then the tone, in my opinion, dramatically shifts as we are follow the character of Joker around Vietnam. Now I want to clarify that this last half of Full Metal Jacket was great. 2w

mundybrown If you like your war films realistic and uncompromising, then this is the movie for you.
Stanley Kubrick's
FULL METAL JACKET.
Here's a bit of info about it.
A superb ensemble cast falls in line for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam war and the dehumanizing process that turns people into killers.
All are plunged into boot-camp hell with tough drill instructor Sgt Hartman, who views the wood-be devil dogs as maggots or something less.
The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humour.
Full Metal Jacket, from its rigours of basic training to its nightmare of combat in Hue City, scores a cinematic direct hit.

great_cinema All posts today are in tribute to the career of Stanley Kubrick, one of the greatest Filmmakers of all time. A master of cinema, and one of my personal favorites. Happy birthday Stanley.

Full Metal Jacket
1987 Directed by Stanley Kubrick
Based on the novel "The Short-Timers" by Gustav Hasford
Starring Lee Ermey, Vincent D'Onofrio, Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Dorian Harewood, Arliss Howard, Kevyn Major Howard & Ed O'Ross
Vincent Canby wrote, "No Kubrick film ever immediately evokes the one that preceded it. Yet it's so distinctive that it can't be confused with the work of any other director.
Though the general public couldn't care less, this can be infuriating to anyone who wants to be able to read a film maker's accumulated body of work as if it were a road map leading to some predetermined destination. As movie follows movie, the Kubrick terrain never becomes familiar. You drive at your own risk, confident only that the director has been there before you."

j_richsqueue It's not that the second half of this movie sucks, it's just the first half is so much better. This movie for me ends with Joker, Pyle, and the Drill Sergeant in the bathroom.

Your eyes within me, they send me just a starin' me down
I'm so turned on in time and child, I got to move around
Ooh yes I do, over and over you astound me
I take pleasure to have you around me
My lovin' arms would love to squeeze you
Ooh baby take it, I don't want to tease you
What can I do, ooh with this feeling?
Hooked on your love sweet love love
What can I do?

ilmiocinema Full Metal Jacket
ANNO: 1987
REGIA: Stanley Kubrick
GENERE: Guerra, Drammatico
VOTO: 8/10
CONSIGLIATO: Sì - Il meraviglioso Kubrick che sa spaziare da genere a genere e lo fa magnificamente. Regia geometrica (come sempre) con carrellate e piani sequenza Kubrickiani, il film mostra per filo e per segno le disgrazie della guerra e tutto ciò che comporta. Non mi allargo con il voto perchè non sono un grande appassionato di film di guerra, in ogni caso manco a dirlo questo merita.

coreywhscarface MOVIE OF THE DAY: Full Metal Jacket (1987). "I bet you're the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around!" Stanley Kubrick's war classic is based on novel The Short Timers by Gustav Hasford. The first half of the film shows the de humanising process of boot camp, the way these men are transformed into trained killers ready to do battle. This part of the movie is almost like a comedy because of the hilarious insults shouted by Lee Ermey, who steals the show in this one as Sargent Hartman. The rest of the movie shows several of the men he trained fighting in the Vietnam war, and how horrible the war was. The movie also stars Vincent D'Onofrio (who put on around 70 pounds for this movie), Adam Baldwin, Matthew Modine, Dorian Harewood and Arliss Howard. The movie is absolutely brilliant, and, imo anyway, is Kubrick's best! #fullmetaljacket #1987 #stanleykubrick #masterpiece #war #vietnam #warmovie #leeemery #adambaldwin #vincentdonofrio #matthewmodine #dorianharewood #arlisshoward #moviegeek #filmgeek #moviesaremylife #ilovemovies #dvd #brilliant #theshorttimers #gustavhasford #adaptation #awesome 2mon
