We can't have any spelling of Dick's last name but we can write his first name. LOL.

I guessing you don't have the "Leave words uncensored" option checked in your forum profile settings.

I remember we referred to them as the otheRSite.

"An obscure body in the SK system your Majesty...the inhabitants refer to it as the Planet Earth..."

He was so good in that role its a shame they never got him into SW or LOTR or any of that.

I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

Good actor, good man.  He nailed what basic training was all about in Full Metal Jacket.

Sad to hear about R. Lee Ermey.  He brought something so visceral to the screen in Full Metal Jacket.  And it wasn't until years after I had seen the movie that I learned how intrinsic he was to the first half of the movie.  Evidently, Stanley Kubrick had brought him on to the production as an advisor while he was casting the film.  He impressed Kubrick so much that he wound up giving the role of Sergeant Hartman to Ermey, and even let him write a lot of his own dialogue.  Without a doubt, that role was one of the most memorable film performances of the past 50 years.


Another loss in the film world was director Milos Forman who passed away on Friday.  His body of work had some incredible films:  One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, Man On The Moon and Ragtime to name just a few.  He was no slouch!
