In episode 67, Marc continues his "Cracking Kubrick" series by bringing in a real-life marine in the form of Pleb Media's Don the Pleb to break down Stanley Kubrick's classic war film, "Full Metal Jacket." Listen in as Don brings his own unique experience as a Marine to the conversation. How realistic was R. Lee Ermey's portrayal of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman? Was the "blanket party" justified? Did Don feel any sympathy for Leonard aka "Gomer Pyle?"
