Name that Tune: “There’s nothing on the TV, nothing on the radio, that means that much to me” – America, Razorlight

Movie Quote of the Day: “Funny how they always want to be friends after they’ve ripped your guts out” – Starship Troopers

Finally flopped into bed last night with a cuppa at about midnight, and the best of a bad bunch on the box was ‘Starship Troopers’ – possibly one of the dumbest movies of all time.

Naturally I was sucked in, after saying to Bman that banal drivel that it was, it had a hypnotic quality (possibly just the dazzling glare of Denise Richards’ smile).

For the uninitiated, this is a movie about giant bugs annihilating millions on Earth so, the good old U. S of A’s futuristic space army set out to kick some cockroach butt. Denise Richards is a warship captain; her meathead boyfriend gets his brains sucked out by a 40 tonne 10 ft high pulsating vagina and then the World is saved by that kid from Doogie Howser M.D. dressed like a Nazi SS Officer, who has some weird power which enables him to communicate with the bug community.

Awesome!   Now why didn’t I think of that?
