Remember Me


Full Metal Jacket (1987)

maverickEpisode 176: We turn to modern war films for this pairing, starting with legendary director Stanley Kubrick's last good film, 1987's "Full Metal Jacket." Starring Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Vincent D'Onofrio, Arliss Howard, and the premiere of the incredible R. Lee Ermey as Gny. Sgt. Hartman, turning in a performance that actually caused Stanley to allow him to improvise, something Kubrick was famous for prohibiting in his actors! This film is a no-holds-barred look at the true horrors of war and the toll it takes on those who enlist during wartime. Set in the Vietnam War, this film is a two-part story: The first follows the squad through the hell that is basic training for the Marines, while the second part shows some of them out in the wilds of Vietnam, coping with the moral ambiguity that comes on a battlefield. And while this film is difficult to watch, it's a movie everyone should see at least once!
