Two great flicks

These really are good movies, it just sucks that they're under one roof. If Full Metal Jacket was somehow a two-part film, it would be a masterpiece. Now after about 50 minutes we cut from one great film to another great film, with no common theme or development. It's obvious that the focus of the training segment is Pyle, even if Joker is the main character. The loss of this focus when the war se... read more

Along with Platoon, this has to be one of the best Vietnam war films around. Starting at the training camp, FMJ follows a Vietnam-bound squad through training at the hands of one of the most recognisable and memorable characters in film history - played by R. Lee Ermey. His rants are the stuff of legend, and out of anything in this film, his character will probably make the most lasting impression... read more

''The deadliest weapon in the world is a marine and his rifle. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your rifle is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead marines and then you will be in a world of shit because mari... read more

A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow Marine recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting set in 1968 in Hue, Vietnam.

“Yo soy partidario de que se utilice el arte como un recurso para mostrarle a las personas puntos de vista distintos a los que "el sistema" trata de imponer.

Por esa razón me gusta la imagen que proyecta está cinta del ejército americano, donde se ve como muchas veces el gobierno de Estados Unidos envía sus tropas a sitios donde ni siquiera ellos mismos entienden por qué están ahí. Puede parecer irrelevante, pero sobretodo en ese tiempo le da una carga de crítica social no muy frecuente en el cine americano de esa época.” read more

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2019 (179 movies items)

"13.4. 2019 Kubrick's anti-war and anti-military masterpiece starts powerfully with a scene where a couple of young men are having their heads shaved. This is a metaphoric way of showing how individuals lose their identity when they become just meaningless and expandable parts of a brutal military machine. First half of the film tells how soldiers are made, and it isn't any less shocking than being in the middle of actual war. "Full Metal Jacket" revolves around the Vietnam War but it could be a"
