    How the heck did I not get it was Dark Star?! That was Talby in the dome I think after the 1st bomb release, no?

    Listen to them. They're still out there. Billions of 'em. It's as if it's their city.
    The Swarm?

    Yep. Its stuck in my head because it was sampled by FSOL on one of their tracks along with a couple of other lines from the movie.

    THE SWARM is correct, Roy!

    A George M Cohan-worthy thought from the end of the credits :
    The African killer bee portrayed in this film
    bears absolutely no relationship to
    the industrious, hard-working American
    honey bee to which we are indebted
    for pollinating vital crops
    that feed our nation.

    **sniffle...sniffle** God bless our bees!


    Anyway, you're up Mr Batty.

    I love bees... couldn't eat a whole one, just an Eric, a half a bee... no!!!

    Arrgh, That was a complete educated guess. It sounded right for insects & I thought ants at 1st but it just sounded like a Michael Caine line! (please tell me it was Michael Caine?). Even went googling for it but no luck... so now I have no quote... please give me no more than a day & I will come up with one (mental note.. do NOT guess when have no quote!)

    Yes it was Sir Michael, just after BRIDGE TOO FAR( ) and just before BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE( Irwin Allen must have had blackmail photos on him or something!). Unfortunately, it's impossible to render a text quote in his singular vocal style.

    But, but; 'Billions of 'em... that's a vocalisation if I ever saw one!

    And I have seen the film... but preferred the one (after? before?) with the VW driven into the stadium then cooled

    You go to hell!
    ok, mostly sci-fi, some horror but best I can come with at the moment.

    Ok, a clue. It involves psychic abilities. That should cut the suspects down some!

    I will ignore it as long as it doesn't lead to Pam Anderson's Oscar.

    On topic, I probably shouldn't guess, since my internet service has been flakey. But what the heck: is is Cube?

    Not Cube, but you've entered the right ballpark with Scanners ggremlin.

    I'm "furious" that it was not Scanners; I should now spin someone to death!

    Hmm, now that you mention it, are you sure you're not thinking of the right film? I remember heads exploding in Scanners but not any spinning...which my one does have. Though it's been a while since I saw Scanners.

    Edit: Oh doh I just noticed your "quotes", yes ggremlin... very good!
    do you want the floor? I had kinda been hoping for some more guesses along the lines of Fire Starter or The Power before you got it

    "The Fury", of course. For some reason, I can only remember Amy Irving from the movie.

    Let's see, spinning reminds me of this one that been running lately.

    Mystery Star:"Control, but they don't have any weapons."
    Control :"You are ordered to fire!"
    Mystery Star:"The Hell with you!"

    "Running Man", hosted by the great and evil Richard Dawson.

    Yalius, that must be a great Internet hookup you have and a sailboat no less.

    Over to you.

    Eh, I wish I could spend more time out there.

    Sounds comical, possibly GALAXY QUEST?

    Shouldn't it be "gorram"?

    I didn't watch it that many times, but usually when I did, I kept waiting for Centauri to star singing... "Seventy-six trombones led the big parade...!"

    Let's see how good the movies buffs here really are.

    Classic, major director, major actor but little seen.

    I can almost positively remember it from two totally different films...after flipping a coin, I'll guess...THX-1138?

    Correct soylentgreen, For the crime of knowing what you should not, you are sentenced to coming up with the next strange and {insert other description here} movie.

    I hope everyone had a good female parental unit appreciation day, as the French say.
