During the late 1980s, a generation of American boys went to war in Vietnam. Doing so, however, didn’t require any basic training or an actual tour of duty. Nope, all that was required was a working VCR and a VHS copy of any one of the squad of Vietnam War-era movies available at the local mom and pop video store. Seriously, I can’t remember a single birthday party from that time that didn’t involve a screening of Good Morning, Vietnam or Hamburger Hill or Platoon. But the Vietnam War movie that has always lingered strongest in my memory – the one that looked different and felt different from the others – was Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.  Hit the jump for my review of the 25th anniversary Blu-ray.

Wednesdays suck. We all know it and we all do everything we can to make the day go by as painlessly as possible. Today a nice little video has hit the internet to help the rough midweek marker pass by a little more smoothly. Feeling frustrated today? I guarantee you aren’t nearly as frustrated as anyone in this video. It’s a compilation of the 100 Greatest Movie Threats Of All Time. Like any compilation like this, there’s a good chance one or two of your favorite lines aren’t included, but the video is pretty damn comprehensive. We’re talking about lines from everything from Full Metal Jacket and Goodfellas to Con Air and Home Alone. If you can think of a better video to help blow off some Wednesday steam than this compilation featuring the likes of Schwarzenegger, Pacino, Stallone, Cage, and a puppet from Team America tearing some offscreen a-hole a new one, we’d like to hear it. Hit the jump to see the clip in all of its NSFW glory.
