Excellent movie!

It's JUST like that too! Well, nowadays they don't really hit you (hard) but other than that, it's a pretty good description of what boot camps really like.

I did not think the Drill Instructor would die so quick. Great movie so far.

Really? I went thru in the 80's (which I consider recently modern) and I thought it was the best depiction put to film as of yet......

So what was your basic's like? Are you speaking from experience or outta the side of your head?

Once in a while I'll play the DVD while I'm working on my computer doing bills.

Here's some for yah:

I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be “Sir!” Do you maggots understand that?

Sir, yes sir.

Bullshit, I can’t here you. Sound off like you got a pair.

SIR, YES SIR!!

If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon, you will be a minister of death, praying for war. But until that day, you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grab-asstic pieces of amphibian shit. Because I am hard you will not like me, but the more you hate me the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on …………………. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?

Sir, yes sir.

BULLSHIT, I CAN’T HERE YOU!

SIR, YES SIR!!!

Some truths are universal.

That movie captures the spirit of basic training.

I remember reading the book the movie was based upon, "The Short Timers" by Gustav Hasford, back in high school. Anyone else read the book as well? It's been a while since I've read it but from what I recall, the movie was pretty close.

I know a kid a few years behind me in school. talked to him at a party during christmas vacation a couple years ago. He had gone through basic that summer for the Marines. He said it was fairly close with the yelling adn stuff, especially this one nigh when the firewatch guy flushed the "do not flush this urinal" urinal in the bathroom and it started flooding the barracks. I guess the DI let off on a rant that would have put R Lee to shame.

Some of my favorite quotes:

"You had best square yourself away and start shitting me Tiffany cufflinks! Or I will definately fuck you up!"

"What's your excuse?"
"Sir, excuse for what, sir?"
"I'M ASKING THE FUCKING QUESTIONS HERE!"

"I don't like the name Lawrence! Only faggots and sailors are called Lawrence! From now on you're Gomer Pyle!"

"Private Pyle, I'm gonna give you three seconds, exactly three fuckin' seconds, to wipe that stupid lookin' grin off your face or I will gouge out your eyeballs and skull fuck you!"

"Are you nervous? Do I make you nervous?"
"....Sir?"
"Sir what? WERE YOU ABOUT TO CALL ME AN ASSHOLE?" (This is my favourite line of his, it cracks me up every time. It's so harsh.)

"Do you suck dicks?"
"Sir, no sir!"
"BULLSHIT! I bet you could suck a golf ball through a garden hose!"

"Pyle! You climb obstacles like old people fuck!"

"I want that head so sanitary and squared-away that the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to go in there and take a dump!"

"Hell, I like you. You can come over to my house and fuck my sister!"
*SMACK*
"You little scumbag! I've got your name! I'VE GOT YOUR ASS!"

This is one of the greatest military movies ever made. Ermey was just awesome. He's so good that I think I would be disappointed if I got to basic training and he wasn't my DI.

Unfortunately, the movie also seemed to end when Pyle shot him. I just wonder if it's coincidence the rest of the movie sucked because Ermey wasn't in that part?

i watched this movie the night before i left for marine boot camp. what a great movie i look back and laugh at how that movie really put the fear of god in me about the di's.


the best line in that movie has got to be" anyone who runs is a v.c. anyone who stands still is a well disiplined v.c."

I think what happened is the movie took a turn from a pro-war point of view in basic training to anti-war when the setting changed to Vietnam.
