The grass looks a funny color.
Yes. I'll pop down to Mr. Sponge's tomorrow and get some bone meal and dried blood.
He may be closed due to the bomb dear.
What, old Sponge? Heh heh. Miss a day's trade? Oh not him. He'd rather die.

After the end credits, Morse code can be heard in the background. The code, when translated, means "MAD". MAD is an abbreviation for the term "Mutually Assured Destruction". See more »
This is a MUST SEE movie! I won't bore you with details right out of the chute, so heres the simple version: GET IT - WATCH IT - TELL OTHERS!
Here's the skinny: This is a movie that not only will stir you in amazing ways, but it has music from Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Genesis, etc. NOTE: The music is written FOR this movie, so even if you have all of your favorite artists albums, until you have this you don't have their best works! So not only are you watching a quality movie, but the soundtrack is a collector's item!
When I first watched this movie I had no idea what to expect. What it presented was far more than I could ever imagine!
It didn't try to goad me with scenes of the horrors of war, it didn't try to move me with petty sympathies, it spoke up about the realities in a very demure way that any viewer will find hard to ever forget!
