    You do realize that you deserve a blanket party for misspelling the man's name?

    Seriously. You should know better than to believe the 'net. You tell us that every time we post something negative about Obama.:p

    But it's still kinda cool...in a creepy stalker fan sort of way.:cool:

    How about the common courtesy of a reach around Ajole?

    Maybe it's time for the man to change his name so it matches my title.

    Uh no, we'll not voluntarily anyway.
    It's a quote by Emry in Full Metal Jacket in what should have been an Oscar winning role.
     
  10. "What is your major malfunction, numbnuts?" I LOVE that movie.
     
  11. you all might know this already. When they did the scene in the barrack with the new recruits Ermey did not work from a script. All the insults and threats and what not were off the top of his head. When he dished out the "reach around" line they had to stop because Kubrick did not know what it meant. Ermey had to explain it to him.

    I still think that is one of the greatest scenes in any movie ever filmed.

    He also wasn't originally cast as the DI, just a consultant.

    Yes, originally ERMEY was brought on as a technical advisor and filmed an instructional how-to video using extras and crew members. Kubrick fell in love and hired him on to play Hartman. While going over the script for that series of scenes, Ermey didn't like all of what Kubrick wrote and was given carte blanche to re-write the script and ad-lib based on the other actor's responses. They said that series of scenes was filmed in 2-3 takes because although funny, the actors were scared sh*tless of Ermey and didn't dare laugh. The lore is, no one really knows how much of that was written by Kubrick, re-written by Ermey, or ad-libbed.

    "May I be in charge for a while?"

    Has me in ditches every time I see that scene.
    The actor playing 'Private Pyle' can't help himself and smile.
    Great stuff.....
