Stanley Kubrick makes his 2nd appearance on the list…or is it his 2nd and 3rd because this is really two movies mushed into one? Do YOU like both halves?
The Irish Critic (Steve’s Mom) is in studio for the critique of this Kubrick masterpiece(?). Denise Mazan joins in too, fresh off a viewing of the 1987 Vietnam War movie.
Was Matthew Modine miscast? Was anyone ever more perfectly cast than R. Lee Ermey? How was Vincent D’Onofrio NOT nominated for an Oscar for this breakout role? Why in the hell are there so many cartoon characters in this war movie? Steve has a theory about that last one.
Love it or not, Kubrick gives those in studio and Mazan Movie Club members chiming in at home plenty to talk about. This episode dedicated to Mary-Jane Rottencrotch.
