Movieing On #282: Full Metal Jacket

1 hour 3 mins - Published Mon, Apr 30, 2018 by Breki Tomasson, Gordon Frye, Linnea Kleiner and Nancy Frye

Many great films were released in 1987. We’ve got The Princess Bride, The Lost Boys, Dirty Dancing, Predator, Spaceballs, Lethal Weapon and many more… Standing a head and a half higher than these movies, however, is the Vietnam War-themed Kubric classic – Full Metal Jacket.

Join Breki, Linnea, Nancy and Gordon as they work their way through this cinematic tour de force and try to work out the structure of the movie. Three acts? Five acts? Two acts? Who knows?!

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.

If you want to get in touch with the people behind the episode or talk to others who like it, feel free to join the CSICONauts chat room. Alternatively, you can find some of this episode's hosts and/or guests on Twitter: Breki Tomasson, Linnea Kleiner and Nancy Frye.
