I can’t believe Roger Ebert ragged on “Full Metal Jacket.”
And I dare suppose that few people now believe “Platoon” was a better movie... even though “Platoon” won an Academy Award for Best Picture (while “Full Metal Jacket” got just one Oscar nomination... for writing).
“Full Metal Jacket” has a dream-like magic about it. Always did.
Anyways... enjoy Gene and Roger going hard at each other.
