Cinema Smackdown 28: The Wrath of the Titans/Full Metal Jacket
By Bret Dorman and Kate Peterson
Wrath of the Titans deals with Gods and Titans as well as some minor mythical creatures.

“War Movie” Full Metal Jacket Review
To get any of our previous episodes, visit our archives on SkyDrive and just download whichever ones are missing from your collection so your iPod doesn’t feel lonely:
Full Metal Jacket features a very hefty Vincent D’onofrio, who gained :70 lbs for the role of Private Pyle. Of course, the original weight gain master was Robert De Niro, who gained 60 lbs for the role of Jake Lamotta in Raging Bull, for which he won an Oscar. Pay close attention to his timing, how perfectly he acts as if he is making up this poem on the spot. The timing of lighting the cigar is definitely a ‘Minutia Monday’ worthy moment…
