This disc gets my highest recommendation,
The debate will always rage as to which film is the best of the Vietnam war movies, but my money remains on Full Metal Jacket. Stanley Kubrick's phenomenal direction on top of several unforgettable characters make this a must see and a must own.
Having gone through boot camp myself, I love watching just that part of the movie. Thinking of my own time there really is similar to the occurrences in this film. It both cases, boot camp, as serious as it is, really is comedic as well.
This Blu-ray release is a remarkable upgrade from any version I have ever seen both visually and sonically. I wish there was more in the way of supplements, but what we get is good. This disc gets my highest recommendation.

One of the greatest war movies ever told,
One of the greatest war movies ever told. The pathos, the torn innocence, the humanity of the characters will sear your soul. A study in bravery, courage, and true brotherhood. But above all, Full Metal Jacket is an ode to the Marine Corps, that band of brothers whose motto is "Semper Fidelis" manifested by each individual Marine to "Corps and country" and to their fellow Marines. Stanley Kubrick captured some of cinema's greatest performances by character actors like Lee Ermey, Dorian Harewood, and Matthew Modine, and the ending is pure inspiration.
