Fire Birds, or the origin of "Oops, you blew it."

Not too long ago I started using an 'Oops, you blew it' tag when someone screws up in some royal fashion.  I particularly like using it when someone has an acute failure of the victim selection process.  Anyway, the line comes from a movie that I loved when I was a kid, and still enjoy, called Fire Birds.  Here's a video of the "Oops, you blew it" scene:

The movie stars Nic Cage and Tommy Lee Jones and was basically the Army version of Top Gun.  I recommend it, especially if you like helicopters.  Lots of Apache porn.

I was six the first time I saw it!

Didn't know there were any others. I'd love to check'em out.
