Maybe it's just personal experience then, because my impression was that it's not particularly appreciated by a lot of Kubrick fans. The only person I know who appreciates it as much as I do is my brother.

If you're right, then all is as it should be.

I think I saw FMJ at least 20 times, it is one of my favorite movies ever. Ermey played the best abusive drill sargent ever.
However, I have to ask.. have you seen any of his other performances ? He's not a good actor by any means, but that's not the point.
He's producing a series called "GunnyTime with R. Lee Ermey" and as a fan of things military, this is probably the closest to getting cancer from tv as you can get.
Don't be fooled by it's surprisingly high score - it's based on 18 votes, probably his assistants Anyway it's the most shallow, stereotypical and often very wrong show full of old men shooting guns and yelling "yeehaw" while doing so. Full of "experts" being baffled by obvious things.
Sorry, had to rant. Don't watch it. It's not "so bad, it's good". It's so bad, you'll get cancer.

He was solid as the grieving dad in Dead Man Walking.

That show he had explaining military equipment wasn't bad either.

Basically it's just fun watching him in a Marine Corps hat.

Eyes Wide Shut is a real dazzler but sex frightens me

It almost gave me cancer. Constant yeehaaaw when firing, getting so excited over obvious issues "So this is a CANNON ? WoW!" and a torrent of moments when he for example, didn't know how to use a 50 cal.
A lot of explosions, very little substance.
I'm not an acclaimed expert on this, but there are certain things (like tanks) I've been reading on for 2 decades .. and when he ventured into "my" territory, when he talked about things I had actual knowledge of, it was mostly bull.
I guess he has to make a living somehow, I'm just sad he didn't do his homework

Finally got around to watching Passengers and it disappointed like I knew it would.

The trailer almost paints it as a thriller. It would have worked better that way. If it went more space horror/thriller than what it ended up being. The trailer made it seem like there was this huge twist but it was a complete let down. They had the framework to do something cool but complete dropped the ball.
