8. Always wondered what he really thought about Full Metal Jacket

Given that Ermey leaned right politically and was a dedicated Marine. I always wondered what he thought about the film that brought him to fame (Full Metal Jacket). Both director Stanley Kubrick and the film are strongly anti-military. Ermey's convincing and riveting performance hammers home how scary, absurd and disturbing the process of turning boys into government killing machines really is.
