Full Metal Jacket is one of the iconic movies of its time, and movie buffs will tell you that if you have not seen it yet, you simply ought to stop what you are doing right now and watch it. It’s Monday morning anyway. You probably won’t get much work done! ((Disclaimer: I have only seen it in bits and pieces myself.))
If you appreciate the movie as most people who have seen it, then you will love the new iPad app that Matthew Modine has released. The star of Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 film decided to release the app, dubbed Full Metal Jacket Diary, because of the amount of material he had collected while keeping an actual diary as they filmed the movie.
