Full Metal Jacket

ZACH: Dude, remember the drill instructor in Full Metal Jacket?
BRIAN: Totally.

Full Metal Jacket, 1987 war drama film directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick. It is based on the 1979 semi-autobiographical novel, The Short-Timers, by Marine Corps veteran Gustav Hasford, who was also one of the screenwriters, and stars Matthew Modine, Lee Ermey, Vincent D’Onofrio and Adam Baldwin.

The storyline follows a platoon of US Marines through their training who struggle under their abusive drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (Lee Ermey). It was the last of Stanley Kubrick’s films to be released during his lifetime, and received critical acclaim, as well as being a commercial success. It is regarded as one of the most exciting films ever made.

Zach and Brian liken Mrs Kim to Gunnery Sergeant Hartman for her level of scariness.
