Platoon VS Full Metal Jacket

the thing about FMJ for me, it was built up towards the end then after they kill the little girl sniper the movie ends which i thought was a terrible way to end a good story.

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?

Apoc Now, Deer Hunter, Casualties of War and Platoon are the best Nam films.



FMJ is overrated just like Kubrick. Big deal, some fat guy gets berated by a loud mouth R Lee Ermey for an hour then shoots himself. Wow.



The only good thing about FMJ is the fact 2 Live Crew sampled “Me So Horny” from it. Other than that, it gets the ballsack.

you are forgetting about Ministry “thieves”…“you will not kill”

Has anybody seen The Killing Fields or The War At Home definitely worth a watch

FMJ was, for the first 30 minutes or so, the funniest fucking movie I had ever seen. That shit had me rollin’.



Then the guy had to kill himself. After that it just got WAY too serious for me…but whaddya expect, huh?

Yeah same here



"I…Am…In a world of…Shit!"



BTW the guy who wrote the book was born and raised in Alabama ;D

I wouldn’t be surprised…

“Private Pile, your ass looks like fifty pounds of chewed bubble gum!”

“Oh that’s right, Private Pyle, don’t make any fucking effort to get to the top of the fucking obstacle. If God would have wanted you up there he would have miracled your ass up there by now, wouldn’t he?”

“Who the fuck said that! Which twinkle toed cocksucker said that?”

Well, no shit. What do we have here, a fucking comedian! Private, Joker! I admire your honesty. Hell, I like you, you can come over to my house and fuck my sister!

“I’ll bet you’re the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddam common courtesy to give him a reach-around.”

somebody saw Hamburger Hill ?

I can safely say I haven’t. Very enlightening.
