I KNOW!! That film was shot in the outskirts of London I heard. Which explains the friggin' overcast! Ever been to Southeast Asia? The KEY experience of Southeast Asia is the humidity and the heat! AND THE SUN!! ARRRRGGHHH!!!!!

The way I see "Full Metal Jacket," when you've seen the drill instructor bit, turn the movie off. Insert "Platoon." You got yourself the perfect movie.

Sounds like that would be a good movie or you could insert Hamburger Hill after the training scene and it would be a good movie.

"No offense, but America with war films has lost its way with all this technology graphics etc. It looks like they focus more on the settings etc than the characters. I mean don't get me wrong got some corker films but lets face it we are losing to graphic enhancement

I still stand by that. I mean the heart of the film is war not computer graphics. Yeah ok Special effects are good but i think they look more real when low budgeted than top of the art flippy flappy"

I agree. The most of new american movies have been spoiled by special effects. War films made in 70s i like the best.

Where to get LAW wich's rocket causes a huge and cool fuel explosion? 8)

Thats why I like Hamburger Hill, Longest Day, and the other movies they are built more around the characters and the actuall movie then the graphics and presentation. They do it for the wars not to look good.

Hey, quite a few modern ones are really good too.

The problem is characters. In movies where character development isn't really required, such as Black Hawk Down, it works really well... but we've been seeing a lot of "cookie cutter" heroes... you'll know who you're dealing with because of who's acting the part.
