Full Metal Jacket: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Book

More than just the movie that made ‘me so horny’ a household phrase.


Drama

Rod Lott
When Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film, Full Metal Jacket, hit theaters in the summer of 1987, I was all of 16 years old. Even I could tell it was far better than Oliver Stone’s Platoon, which by then had won four Academy Awards; by comparison, Jacket would be nominated for one, Best Adapted Screenplay, and lose it to The Last Emperor.

Room 237

Rhetoric on redrum.


Documentary

Rod Lott
The Shining is about a novelist who goes mad while hotel-sitting over a winter break. The Shining is about the white man's genocide of Native Americans. The Shining is about the Holocaust. The Shining is about how Stanley Kubrick faked the Apollo moon landings.
