    Full Metal Jacket Drill Sargent - North Pole Elves

    Might want to have the volume on your computer turned down if you're at work. You know what I mean if you've seen FMJ.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Have it on BR .... what a sweet movie. You really feel bad for every person in that platoon from basic to Vietnam.

    R. Lee Ermey is good stuff. He spoke at my Marine Corps Ball in 1994. He yelled at a few of us just for fun.

    He is a retired Staff Sgt who recently got promoted to Gunery Sgt. If real life he is a very nice guy. He always get's pegged for roles where he plays bad guys or creapy guys. Great guy though.

    I heard in FMJ he adlibbed most of the scenes where he's chewing out the recruits. Great stuff.

    Re: Full Metal Jacket Drill Sargent - North Pole Elves

    He also was not the guy to get that part at first. He was supposed to be just there to give direction. At a certain point he was showing Oliver Stone what a drill instructor does. When he went off on a fake recruit. Oliver Stone knew he need Ermy to do the Drill Instructor part.

    Just to let everyone know. Except for the "Choke yourself" part. My drill instructors were even harder than he was in the movie. I don't think anyone understands how hard Marine Corps Boot camp is.

    thanks for posting!


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Not trying to be a pain, but FMJ was a Kubrick movie.

    Which is why, because I'm a wuss, if I had to enlist I would have gone into the Air Force...

    Re: Full Metal Jacket Drill Sargent - North Pole Elves

    You are correct. I misspoke. Insert Kubric instead of Stone. The title of the movie is even "Stanley Kubrics Full Metal Jacket" and I still screw it up.
