    Hes inspection of the new recruits is my favorite part of Full Metal Jacket. I think a lot of it was not scripted and came from his own experience. I often watch that part of the film on its own.

    Sad news. Along with his iconic role in FMJ I really enjoyed him in Se7en and The Frighteners.

    Sir RIP Sir

    Amongst the other obvious performances I really loved him as the Mayor in Mississippi Burning.

    RIP Mr Ermey.
