It’s been a while since we posted what was supposed to be a regular feature around here. Truth be told, I’ve just been saving my wad for what is probably the second best military speech in the history of cinema. Mr. Lee Emery in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Despite Kubrick being my favorite director of all time, I never much cared for the second half of this film. But I can watch the boot camp bits over and over and over. No small part of that appreciation is due to Gunnery Sergeant Hartman and his spot on performance of the meanest sum’ bitch this side of the Mississippi. Also part of the reason I never joined the Marine Corp.
