Full Metal Jack 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Book Giveaway

20 August 2012 1:13 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Full Metal Jacket, the celebrated Kubrick film that delivers a gripping and scathing look at war and the military “process” is now available in an Anniversary edition Blu-Ray book, and I’ve got a copy for you to win.

Popularity and awards aside, Full Metal Jacket (like most Kubrick films) left a clear mark that became more than just an iconic moment of the culture. Love, hate, or indifference, you couldn’t help talking about it, and it was a film that pushed the collective sense of what films can do to such a degree that we live in its wake still.

The release is a must-own for fans, and has a fair number of things to brag about, but it loses a few points for not offering a little more in the way of new material. The newly remastered Blu-Ray may be all a lot of people, and it delivers on looks, »

R. Lee Ermey (r.) drills Matthew Modine in Full Metal Jacket.

Full Metal Jacket 25thAnniversary Blu-ray Book is the latest edition of Stanley Kubrick’s (Barry Lyndon) 1987 war film saga about the Vietnam conflict and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers.

The anniversary edition of the film (Warner first issued it on Blu-ray in 2007) is showcased in premium Blu-ray Book packaging with 44 pages that include a personal letter and reflections from star Modine, along with behind-the-scenes photos. »
