Full Metal Jacket. My favorite war movie and f*ck you if you say it's not a war movie.

:lol:

Has someone said it isn’t?
I've had peers say, 'Well, it's not really a war movie because half of the movie is the characters just training'....Yeah, for A F@CKING WAR! And people have commented about the lack of large scale combat--they totally missed the point; its an up close and personal narrative about how f***ed up, ironic and contradictory war can be.  How much of a war movie can you get? The whole movie is so ripe with social and political commentary and you put in the humor, holy hell is this a great Vietnam War movie.

Those peers of yours are idiots!

Full Metal Jacket is an A+ grade WAR movie!

I like it more than Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, and nearly every other war movie out there!

Full Metal Jacket is about being beat down until you just don't give a shit anymore.

Peter Sellers is brilliant in Strangelove, which gets my vote for the film I most enjoy.  2001 would be a close second, with Clockwork and Jacket just behind that film.

He was all set to play Major T. J. King Kong. Kubrick wanted Sellers playing a character in all the locations. but Sellers sprained his ankle and couldn't (or wouldn't) play Kong. Apparently, he was frustrated with the accent and felt he couldn't do the role justice.
