    Right? Why not just nuke the f**k out of the insect planet? Ah, but then we don't get a great shower sequence with Dina Meyer and the rest of the female troopers.

    John Ford was once asked why in Stagecoach (where the stagecoach is pursued by Indians across a stretch of desert) the Indians didn't just kill the horses pulling the coach. "Because then we wouldn't have a movie," John Ford quipped. Artistic license always trumps banal reality.

    Memorial Day Classics

    About a decade ago, each year, TNT would broadcast a 24-hour marathon called "Operation TNT" showing all the WWII classics. For some dumb reason, TNT (which is a great network imo) stopped. Not only was it a great way to honor those who sacrificed so much for us but I really enjoyed the movies. It was great television.

    Funny, I would have thought the only war movie you'd like was "Kill All the Trolls and Watch Them Die Slowly"

    All great movies mentioned.

    I'll add Inglorious Basterds. Re-watched it again last night, great entertainment.
