A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) – Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh hi!

That’s right your honor. I was on Elm street just trying to sell my new invention: The Finger Knife Glove when all these parents start coming at me.

What’s that your honor? You like my ugly sweater. Well thank you..uh I like your robe.

Anywho, you see my Finger Knife Glove is going to revolutionize the cutlery industry. It’s going to do for the kitchen… what indoor plumbing did for shitting.

oh…and if that doesn’t excite your honor and the jury, I have a great idea for some Scissor Hands.

What’s that? Not guilty. Well thank you your honor.

Chow Chow Chow!

Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – Like a giant pimple on your forehead forever captured on celluloid. For Pete’s sake Nancy, pop that thing!

SHOW NOTES:

 

That places looks like tetanus (Tet-Anus)

Lamb in the halls..metaphorical dude! RUN

You can see through here nightgown. Probably on purpose.

This is a pretty complicated shot with all the shadows and smoke? Right? Maybe. Who is the CinnamonTographer?

This music and effects are abrasive. Intentionally. I wonder if they used one of them horror music homemade dealies.

Run girl…run!

Why is it always in the boiler room? Perhaps they will tell us more about the boiler room later in the movie?

Freddie pops up with laser shot noises. pew pew pew

It was just a dream mamma!

Mamma is getting some and by some I mean some of that old man spaghetti.

The Freddie song! 1-2…Freddie’s coming for you….3-4… shhh…I’m trying to see if I can remember it from my childhood! 3-4 Better lock the door. 5-6 Crucifix.  7-8 Something something about don’t be late. 9-10 Freddie’s creeping again. 11-12 You’re out of bed? Twelve…belve…shit….

OGR 805 – Johnny (Glen) is driving an old convertible…and man can he hop!

gif by Scott Johnson

“I had a hard on when I woke up this morning.” Thanks Glenn…so does 90% of the male population in high school…give that man a boner prize.

Up yours with a toilet what?!?

“Tell yourself it’s just a dream and you wake up.” Works for Depp. So not true.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE? I don’t dream bitches. I killed the sandman a long time ago. NEVER SLEEP!

Got a cousin who lives near the airport…cousin Barry.

When your jambox Foley work is subpar. You are BUSTED. Also, Glen’s mom is the second clueless parent so far. Tina’s mom being the first.

Creepy music makes a creepy story creepy. finger-knives! screee

Nike Sweater Vest pull over…you deserve to die Johnny ‘Glen’ Depp

Kittie Kittie. Chow Chow Chow. (was that a thing? I think I remember a commercial.) Chow Mix?

Hey Rod. You are a dick…and did you forgot to button your shirt up buddy. Nobody wants to see your happy trail.

A sleepover date? Pretty sure that is not a thing. I guess we got away with it from time to time. Did you guys?

Trope…girls gotta stick up for one another…especially when she is dating a creep…always cramps the good guys style.

Ahhh…listening to others have sex…best time. Have you ever had to listen to sex. What did you do?

I guess Tina wanted to wander down Rod’s happy trail after all. TINA MUST DIE.

Nice effect! What a magic trick! Freddie pushing through and then it’s solid.

I think I will go outside in only my shirty-shirt when someone whisper yells my name.

eeek! Garbage pale kids are coming for you? or Oscar the grouch? All we have are those plastic roller trash cans now. I miss the old noisy aluminum cans of my childhood. You know the ones…the ones that were booby traps for late night burglars to bumble over…or possibly you if you are trying to sneak away.

This is god? Your right glove? what do you call left hand. The left hand of god? The lefty. The other hand. Not god?

What’s your body made of? Maggots and Freon?

Do not bring Freddie back with you….do not do it…it sounds like a good plan…but no.

Tidy Whitties on an Italian?

Oh this is getting bloody Tina. No Tina…not on the walls!

Dad is the police chief.

I see why Nancy is so screwed up now. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is the Sgt.

Did we ever do that? Show dead arms hanging off gurneys on TV? Maybe in the 70s…but surely not in the 80s!

We liked big buttoned collars in the 80s. The more drunk you are…the bigger buttons you need.

Jump Scare. Rod loves to surprise people. He’s the real villain here.

Maybe if Barry buttoned his shirt once in a while we wouldn’t have to arrest him.

“Look a switchblade!” – Cop One says with surprise.

Nancy don’t wanna sleep! Nancy sleep.

“Where’s your pass! Screw your pass!” – Breaking the law!

Tina’s back…in a body bag! That is a lot of blood in that body bag BTW

It says NO STUDENTS ALLOWED Nancy! Roaming the halls with no pass as well. You are so going to get at least 2 demerits. Did you get demerits in school? If you got 10…that was a paddling.

Freddie consists of green mucus and maggots. mmm.

eeeek! It was all a nightmare. Also, my teacher is the hippie medium from Insidious I believe. She can’t get out of the horror racket. It chewed her up.

Freddie gave Nancy a hickey? Nope…it’s a burn.

Hate those inflatable bath pillows.  Don’t fall asleep in the tub…it happens all the time…well why did you give me this ugly bath pillow if you didn’t want me to sleep.

“Don’t fall asleep in the tub….but here is a pillow. A gross inflatable fungus ridden pillow…NOW DON’T FALL ASLEEP!”

Mom is going to turn down my bed for me….maybe if you had of turned dad down Dad once in a while I wouldn’t have to exist.

Let’s take some Stay Awake and watch some scary movies to avoid nightmares. Thumbs Up!

Nancy…what is that knot on your forehead? Zit cream stat!

Oh god I look 20 years old…like that is a bad thing. I no longer like Nancy.

Johnny Depp and Nancy are teeth twins.

You stay awake (guard) while I nap. WHAT, YOU FELL ASLEEP!

5th precinct sucks.

1-2…I’m watching you.

you get to star most of the movie in a body bag Tina. Sorry about your luck.

Those stepping into the paint buckets full of glue and oatmeal on the steps is bad effects. I get what they were going for. It failed. Good try though

No my favorite Pillow!!! Feathers are everywhere!

Glen…you had one job…

Mom has all the sexy lingerie. Is she a stay at home prostitute?

Glen done fell asleep on the stoop. You just know it…he’s like a narcoleptic. Wasn’t that a thing in Dream Warriors? Part 3?

“We have reason to believe….” – Glenn….do you think you are a cop? Why are you talking like that son.

Mom has a plan. A very bad plan. It probably involves Vodka.

Dad knows more than he is saying. Spit it out dad!

Katja Sleep Study. This ought to go over well.

They put that probe right on Nancy’s forehead pimple.

Dr. Roger Rabbit. Puhhhlease Freddy…

Look what I got! I got his hat…I hope his head is cold in scary dream world. Dick.

It’s real mom…touch it….PSYKE! NOPE…YOU CAN’T TOUCH IT!

Fred Krueger…it’s in the hat mom…and so are his old gross man hairs..

Nancy is going gray

Back when you could back hand your kids and not go to jail.

Noooo! Not the booze Nancy!. It’s ok…I have more…everywhere in the house apparently.

Dream Skills…I got mad dream skills.

Rules! Will they use them?

Glen: You ever read about the Balinese way of dreaming?
Nancy: No.
Glen: They got a whole system they call “dream skills”. So, if you have a nightmare, for instance like falling, right?
Nancy: Yeah.
Glen: Instead of screaming and getting nuts, you say, okay, I’m gonna make up my mind that I fall into a magic world where I can get something special, like a poem or song. They get all their art literature from dreams. Just wake up and write it down. Dream skills.
Nancy: And what if they meet a monster in their dream? Then what?
Glen: They turn their back on it. Takes away its energy, and it disappears.
Nancy: What happens if they don’t do that?
Glen: I guess those people don’t wake up to tell what happens.

Dream Skills. I got booby trap skills!

Bars on the windows…mom works fast. I mean like in a few hours she barred that whole place up.

Even put bars on the door window…like you could crawl through that.

That moment when mom asks you to go to the cellar with her.

A filthy child murderer.  The Lawyers got fat and the judges got famous.

YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! Don’t worry…mommy killed him.

Cut off shirts! ahhhh yeah! Thanks for the abs Glen.

Prisoner of Zendor? Zendar? Prisoner of Zenda!

7th Day of no sleep…11 is the record. -Nancy Says…well you got a timeline on your hands.

Whatever you do…Don’t Fall Asleep… CUT…oh yeah…that is so going in the trailer.

Miss Nude America…is that his mom or his Grandma?

Where the hell did Nancy have that Coffee Pot? it’s freaking plugged in and brewed!

No way is that Johnny Depp’s dad.

“You know what I think…I think that girl is a lunatic.” Glen’s Dad

Nancy done took so many pills she is a free bleeder. or is it the coffee.

How much Vodka does mom have stashed. I see where Nancy learned to hide beverages now.

Glenn’s dad is kind of a dick…and he is wearing some kind of cult necklace pendent.

Fred has a phone? Uh…yes…Hello…this is Fred.

Do you remember the DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince. Nightmare on my street?

 

Never. Ever. Ever. Answer a phone that is ripped out of the wall.

That phone has a tongue and it wants to lick you.

That poor phone…

Locked! Locked! Locked!

Who sleeps with a TV on their crotch?

Glenn got surcked into a bed hole.

That is a lot of blood.. Glenn is made of blood. like a whole trash can full. maybe 2.

Why did you call an ambulance? Haha…you don’t need a stretcher…you need a mop.

Hey papa…wave papa…hey papa.

How does Nancy know 20 minutes is the timeline? RULE

Is that a lifesaver? Butterscotch I hope?

Soooo…in 20 minutes time…she macgyvered booby traps…comforted mom.. 10 minutes…. fell asleep…found fred and return.

What is in that ambulance? that they need a siren. Blood for the bloodbank?

That cellar has everything. Dogs playing poker. Freddie’s knife glove. oooh…Vodka! Freddie’s Basement.

In the afterlife.. Fred collects souls

Everybody labels their stuff in this movie. Fred’s Hat. Glenn’s Headphones. Hall Monitor!

You my bitch now Freddie!!

Nancy “Home Aloned” Freddie

“Get my dad asshole!” – Nancy

Clueless parents…Clueless cops…

I would love to see all the Freddie falls.

“Daddy I did it!”

Burning foot prints…that is bad ass.

how many bed deaths are there?

What…you just saw your ex-wife get sucked into the abyss and you are going to leave your daughter in that room?

Wait…did she beat Freddie or did he beat her? Is Nancy dead?

I forgot about this ending! Is she still dreaming! Will I have to watch Part 2 to know?

Nightmare done.

 

The Shining (1980) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh no. It’s happening. it’s happening. it’s The Sackening!

oh hi, The little man who lives in my butt is back. He’s telling me about this week’s movie. Oh….By the way, I’ve never watched a FilmSack movie in my life. I just say what my butt goblin Toby tells me.

What’s that Toby? Ok, I’ll tell them:

He says:  Poor old Head Chef Scatman was just trying to enjoy some well deserved rest in his bachelor pad down in Miami. Then that white boy invaded his headspace with his “Shining.”

And, what does Scatman do? (hehe…Scatman Doo)…

Scatman do hop a plane, take a cab, rent a Snow Cat, brave a Blizzard and wander the halls of the Overlook hotel. His reward? An axe wound to the chest.

Scatman should have stayed in bed… maybe spent a little more time starring at his sweet foxxy mama posters. Ahhh yeah…that is some sweet chocolate candy there.

Thank you Toby for your insight.

Wow, It’s almost like I pulled that intro out of my butt!

The Shining (1980)

Book “The Wish Child”

“A Month Later”

We got this whole hotel. I’m going to make use of the food cart!

Big Wheel!!

That thing makes a horrible noise on the hardwood floors…then carpet…then floor…then carpet…DANNY! I bet that was tough following him around with a camera.

A month in and he is still getting breakfast in bed…that shit would have ended the first week.

Scott is grossed out by dipping bacon in runny yolks.

“You did real good keeping the place straight…but who the hell put all them ball marks on the wall? and what the hell…on the ceiling!”

The Overlook Maze sure has a lot of lights?

What would you do if you have a gigantic hotel to roam?

  • I would sleep in a different room every night and never make up the bed.

He is the master of puppets looking over the maze…cool transition from model to overhead shot.

“Tuesday” – Bonk!

talking about 1968 shooting…missing lady with her husband…fore shading?

No room 237…no!

This kid is a great actor…or perhaps Kubrick is a great director…or maybe both.

You can just feel Shelley Duvall coming to wreck is day with her bubbli-ness.

Shelley Duvall telling me not to be grouchy would make me grouchy.

You are distracting me!

“Thursday” – No fanfare

The Tea Kettle noise indicates the shining in Danny and his father’s case.

“Saturday” – The shining bleeds in.

The Shining…brought to you by 7up

Over…Over…this conversation is dumb…over.

Danny…come play with us…forever and ever…also, this is the wing that has the really shitty wallpaper.

It’s just like Peaches in the book?

“Monday” no fanfare

What is Danny & his mom watching in the lobby? It’s a lot of coffee talk….I mean a lot of coffee talk. Right before lunch…but dad is still sleeping and Danny wants his fire truck! Don’t…wake…Daddy…now that is scary..

Oh hi dad! It looks like you are awake!

The worst…the abusive dad…who shows you some attention…

Echo’s of the twins…I wish we could stay here forever and ever…

Danny is asking the hard questions. “You wouldn’t hurt me and mommy would you?”

“Wendnesday” cymbals crash

Pink and blue and green was a popular color for toys in Danny’s collection.

Danny has an Apollo sweater on…crocheted…did his mom knit that? Is he going to the moon?

Who da hell opened 237!!

So Dad has just become totally useless now…so mom has to go do all the work in the dirty overalls.

Jack Torrance is having day terrors!

Grote…Jack had some slobbering going on.

Damnit Wendy! I told you not to come in here when I am screaming!

Most horrible dream he has ever had.

Wendy’s comfort is even unbearable

 

Dreaming of killing your family…and chopping them up…might want to keep that to yourself.

Wendy is surrounded by crazy.

Danny is sucking his thumb and has neck abrasions.

What? I did’t do nuffin.

The walk of crazy…slashing in the air…

The bartender who is not there…or a ghost…how about a robot? Passengers?

uh oh…he sold his soul right there at the bar….would give  his soul for a glass of beer. Lloyd…

2  20s in his pocket. Nope

White Man’s Burden.

He said 5 miserable months on the wagon…but that doesn’t jive if he was at 5 months at closing according to Wendy. It’s been at least a month or more at the hotel.

Jack still maintains he would never hurt Danny…and is convinced that Wendy will never forgive him. But he can’t forgive himself. 3 years ago….after Danny threw his papers all over the floor.

Jack is twitchy…

via GIPHY

What is Wendy running from?

Jack goes to sleep like Danny when he talks to Lloyd.

Wendy saw a lady try to strangle Danny.

Channel 10 in Miami…and some Chef feet. Maybe gross for Scott?

Chef has a luxurious lady with a boufant hairdo over the TV and another one over his bed. Yeah he is single. Meanwhile back in Colorado…bad weather…

Halloran is having a moment in room 237 thanks to Danny’s call out powers…more drool

Those Chicago people who came in and decorated have horrible taste in colors

or is that just room 237

Naked lady in the tub! Hot damn says Jack! Man she is tall. Pretty tame bush for early 80s

Slow motion naked lady is just what Jack ordered.

That bathroom has no toilet paper.

Would you let a fairly attractive naked lady touch you and kiss you in a bathroom.

I thought those sores were tattoos at first.

That old lady has been doing some lady ‘scaping down there.

How many numbers you going to dial Scatman?

Wendy snorts when she cries

Ahh come on Jack…you don’t want to tell your wife about making out with the old lady shape shifter?

So is the lady is 237 the crazy man’s wife? She looks too old for that. Is she another lady?

Maybe Danny did it to himself? yeah..that’s it!

Danny is silent screaming.

Shoveling out Driveways…Working at the carwash…are those his only other qualifications?

Damnit Wendy….you screw up everything.

He is tearing through the kitchen…you think Scatman is going to clean that up?  Hell nah.

Navajo artwork on the walls and ballons in the halls

I’m the chef at the Overlook Hotel…and I need to talk to the Hotel! He did bring it around to relevance by saying his worry was about them starving to death…LIKE THE DONNOR PARTY!

We are implying a party during the 20s…they heyday of the hotel perhaps?

Hair of the dog that bit me…Burbon on the rocks.

No charge? My money is no good eh? Orders from the house, huh?

Who is buying my drinks Lloyd? Who’s the puppet master? Doesn’t matter yet Jack.

What was the waiter serving? Advocaat? It stains…is it made of jizz? cause I just wiped mine off on you Jeeves.

Red bathroom is red.

Delbert Grady was the first caretaker at the Overlook under Ullman’s management, in the winter of 1970-71. Like Jack, he was an alcoholic. Also like Jack, he tries to murder his family – a wife and two young daughters. Unlike Jack, he succeeds.

I know who you are Mr. Grady

This is my house Jack!

There is about to be a Caretaker Battle in the Red Room

Jack has always been the caretaker according to 20s Grady.

Grady reveals Danny is trying to bring in the chef…and they said the N word 3 times in a row! That in a bathroom…that is sure to summon Candyman.

Grady reveals that Danny has a great talent.

Danny is a very willful boy.

Jack blames Wendy for interfering with his will.

One of Grady’s kids tried to burn down something…then Grady “corrected” them.

 

Who really unlocked the door? Was it Danny/Tony since Danny was in a trance at the time? Or was it the spirit of Grady?

Mirroring is prominent in this movie…from Redrum (murder) to shots in mirrors..to Danny mirroring his father?

You would think they would take all the axes with them during Winter break

Damn tiny bathroom windows….give me a full window please!

What Kubrick had to say on The Shining: http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/amk/doc/interview.ts.html

Dick was on his bed minding his own business in Miami…watching TV and being turned on  by his 70s wall hangings of foxxy ladies. When he gets a person to person head call from the white kid in the cold snowy mountain.  He then places a call to the mountain Rangers. Hops a plane. Rents a car. Calls in a favor to get a snow cat. Braves a blizzard. Walks the halls of a huge hotel. Takes an axe to the chest. Dies. Should have stayed in bed.

Theory: Danny transfers his conscience into Dick and rides his body all the way back to the hotel.  When Danny contacts Dick; Tony occupies Danny’s body until Dick arrives at the hotel and is axed. At which time Jack starts calling for Danny and he takes off.

 

Escape From New York (1981) – Show Notes

Intro:

Oh hi! This week’s movie is one of them Future/Past dealies. You know, where they make a film in 1981 but it takes place in 1998 but you are watching it in 2017 and you are thinking how it is going to be at least 2018 before the president builds a wall around New York. You know….one of them movies.

Also, did you ever consider: this is a movie about a one-eyed Snake being inserted into a dirty hole who is just trying to pull out before his head explodes? Dirty Carpenter is always dirty. 400%

Hey, I just realized….Snake Pliskin on has one good eye. That makes him a one eyed snake.

Hey nice boots chief…I’m walking

Ernest P. Whorl is the President?

President is easy to find. He’s in a big red egg. Unless he left the egg…in which case you are screwed.

A lot of people running around like roaches before our oblivious hero.

Black Tank Top / Camo Leotrads and Ski boots.

I like how Carpenter plays with the running animals as danger approaches. More like rats or roaches scurring

These bulding are made out of rotten timber

Snake…you busted your locater Snake…hey Snake.

Cabbie who always shows up…Moltovs!

Can’t wait to tell Eddie

Why did they dress the president up as a lady.

Round 2 is trash can lids and spiked bats

Big Diaper Baddie took one to the back of the head.

Brain took the president! Smart.

Where did Snake find his shirt?

I see why your car don’t work…it’s got a dude for an engine.

Firefox (1982)

INTRO:

Oh Hi, This week’s film may hit a little too close to home. What with us on the verge of Cold War II but I’ll try to get through this with little to no seizures or joy…

Speaking of getting hit. What does it take to get punched in this movie?

Take Eastwood’s cigar. Death by face beating.

Play pocket pool while fondling Eastwood’s papers….Face punching to the death.

Russian pilot flipping on a light switch. That’s a face beating with a side of “hold the death.”

“Your papers are not in order.”

Firefox (1982) – Like acting & directing your own 21 Million dollar project & blowing the entire budget on “not so special” effects & bad borscht

SHOW NOTES:

Simple title card. Firefox…left…serif

all the material that was ever made for gray sweatpants was made in 1975 or should I say it was discovered in some cave in South America.

Sweatpant Suit…only accessory…white towel…shoved into collar

Suddenly a Hairy (Harry) Eastwood appears

Trope: The ole reclusive military/special/govt agent who has removed himself from battle is located by army helicopter.

Alaska

Them running shoes is loud. Like somebody on a sound stage

Run forrest! Run! Through the Forrest.

Blow up the bridge!

Are those refuel rods in the front of those copters? They always make me think of some kind of insect sucker.

Time for some Napalm flashbacks!

Fire…fire..

His memories are grainy at best.

He was pretty old for a pilot in Nam right?

So his entire flashback was the time he got shot down and almost carried away and almost killed that poor kid…or did they napalm their rescue?

His POW Files. He was carried across a river in a bamboo cage.

Know what is a bad idea? Surprising a dude who is having flashbacks.

What a couple of pilot jerks…let up your shades

Firefox-pilots

Now we will have a British guy explain what is going on.

A Mach (mack) 5

at 0400 hours on Thursday…

wait…it’s an invisible jet with weapons driven by the mind.

We need you major…to come back

POW…Mother is Russia(n)…and fits the suit and has seizures (freezes up)

We got 3 months to train you.

Fly a plane like the devil himself.

“You are stupid Buckles.”

You will be flying the most advanced war-craft in existence…as soon as you steal it.

“Look at that face. He has 5 pounds of heroin in it?”

Desperate times call for desperate plans.

London baby!

Your Suite Will Be Bugged. You are transporting heroin.

KGB is slow to awaken…but if you wake it up…bam!

Fake mustache grooming is the only grooming i do.

Here you go American Bond…this is your radio…don’t lose it…You afraid of being captured? Here…let me tell you a story of despair and desperation.

Gee…I wonder if the black box will come into play…since we just blew it off…then made it super important.

Nice glasses…did you beat up an old lady for those?

That was tense! They even took his radio apart! Wonder if he has a face full of Heroin.

Moscow Hotel…the only hotel in Moscow. Mockba Hotel…You don’t stay at Moscow Hotel. Moscow Hotel stays at you.

Loudest watch in all of Russia

There is always a Dmitri and Victor in Russia.

This guy has a big forehead

Russians do like their street cleaning machines….at least according to movies from the 80s based on the subject.

Back alley cat in Russia is back alley cat in Russia

Trope: Silly couple walking in the dark. They are always interrupting my Cloak and Daggers.

I didn’t realize vaping was so popular during the 80s

“Never smoke another man’s cigar….get beat with a stick.

A quick sprint and wardrobe change later…and you are staying at the Waldorf

No…No…I got the squirts. No…

“Your Papers are not in order.”

Also, don’t touch Eastwood’s Papers….or get beat with a stick.

Nocturnal Sight Seeing Of Our City

They got KGB for everyone!

“Do you know how to use this? Good…don ‘t use it.”

The KGB is mighty polite

Moscow is curious.

Don’t insult me with your words! Now get out!

Apparently, you can’t beat it out of him. Unless you mean the life. “I didn’t kill him…you pressed me!” Maybe he is dead

That computer was pretty quick on the photo comparison.

We are going to use fire to destroy the Firefox.

Things have gone wrong. So our plan has changed from steal the Firefox to steal the backup Firefox.

“Big ears” are listening

ha! You must think in Russian!

Walk like an American! Talk like an American! Think like a Russian.

Don’t touch Eastwood’s light switch….that’s a beating and slapping….ahhh helll..just a beating

Where did I see him?

Trope: Search parameters. Search every obscure location.

I completed the work 2 hours ago…I’ve just been stalling (Stalin)

Who me? In the pilot suit? nothing.

He’s not going to make it…he made it

Perfect timing…not only did you lose the top secret jet. Your have a high level audience.

Dying in a hanger next to your dead wife…gets to see the American save the day

Dying on a hillside….gets to see the American save the day.

Supposed to be saving fuel…decides to “open it up”

Glad they established the “Black Box” to explain why he is explaining everything while flying…cause he can’t talk to ground control.

Contact Mother 1.

This is his second time seeing “what this baby can do.”

He tired them rockets out. They were like…nope…quiting.

CCCP orange is the new Russian

He’s coming in an awful hurry. He must really know what he is doing…OR HE’S A MORON!

Commence operation “Harmless”

The Russian’s are falling apart. Press Secretary PR nightmare is interfering

Orange balloons! Who’s having the party?

Cliffy…can you steam me a runway?

What you doing? I can’t talk to them. I’m out taking temperature readings or something.

Wave Stewart…Duh…Waaaave

You must think in Russian. Use the force Clint.

FireFox Russian Prime sooked.

A Russian Screaming aaaand roll credits.

Let’s see what these credits can do.

Music was weird

I have to go urinate in public and re-attach this mans nipples. Don’t worry. I’m going to wash my hands before and after each…because otherwise that would be gross.

Around The World In 80 Days (2004) – Like taking a “Steamer” to London captained by a man with no nipples. Wear the rubber underpants!

Notes:

That China-Man is robbing the bank of England.

The Steam Punk Conehead

Wear the rubber pants

Trope: Agree to a dangerous job to avoid apprehension / Oh you must be the Servant from Servant Co that I was expecting.

Crazy backyard scientist….

Flubber and movies of this like use Steam powered science that is more akin to bubbly soda

Nothing funnier than the ole face punch through a painting where the painting face should be.

I don’t think they know what a Valet is. or perhaps I do not

Ramsey invented the slinky in the late 1800s and was put in the lunatic asylum.

Impregnable vs impenetrable.

As adjectives the difference between impenetrable and impregnable is that impenetrable is not penetrable while impregnable is too strong to be penetrated or impregnable can be capable of being impregnated.

Lord Salisbury

A woman in the Royal Academy!

The Jade Buddha

Little Red Rule Book

I got to admit…I laughed at Passport Two…passepartout

Turns on with a whistle.

Was 50 miles per hour ever really a barrier?

The whisper game

Elderly Norwegians with very tiny feet

Fortnight (2 weeks)

These British have the best teeth of any British I have seen in the late 1800s

Challenge extended. Challenge accepted.

Everyone has a price…or do they.

The wager…no more science…or all the science. Royal Academy of Science head…sounds like a lot of work.

Sitting in my copper tub….thinking about my poor choices.

Keep getting this movie confused with Shanghai Knights

Nothing funnier than seeing an authoritarian figure being drug down the road by a horse/car

Me Brain’s Leaking!

Trope: Asian lady who is good with knives

Ahh…the early years of 3d animation. Nice twist on the map travel interstitials or transitions though

Wait a moment! This is not science…it is art.

Grass is not charcoal.

Man is not a chicken….The Van Gogh loop was very popular in France during the late 1800s

You dream of flying and naked men?

Women are getting pushed out everywhere.

Old French ladies are always trying to take a bite out of Jackie Chan

Old French lady taking a face plant made me laugh.

Brothel humor makes me laugh. No it does not.

Ahh…Jackie Chan…saving sleeping ladies from their own incompetence

The statue is grabbing his trousers! It also has dreams of flying and naked men.

Jackie Chan getting pants is always good humor.

Jackie Chan is the bumbling fool that has skills…the police man is just bumbling

Fogg is smitten with fancy hoes.

A wild Arnold appears.

What a weird choice for Istanbul prince?

I never think when I am naked…

Arnold does not like you pointing at his thinker.

Bathing suits are weird.

A wife for each day of the week. But what if I want to be single on Tuesdays!

They are taking the idea of Fat Cats to the highest degree.

Lord Kelvin is cold.

Cross Dressing is always funny …especially when trying to escape in a crowd. except that it is not and always ends with the hunter being smitten with the prey until they realize…and the pursuit continues

Man of many chains…you do not want to go against…the man of many chains

Sake and Dominos

Perhaps one of the most violent Disney movies since Flubber

Drunk China-man..

kanpai! is that also a Chinese cheer? or just Japanese.

Chinese: Nien Nien nu e. Kong Chien
Chinese: Yung sing (“drink and win”)
Chinese Cantonese: Gom bui (“dry the cup”)
Chinese Mandarin: Gan bei (“dry the cup”)

I went back…she is saying Gom Bui…possibly Gan bei.

Chan, surveying the pre-show chaos, periodically contributed comments in a mishmash of English, Mandarin, and Cantonese, the language of his native Hong Kong. “I’ve forgotten how to speak Cantonese!” he said. In Beijing, where he lives now, Mandarin is spoken. He leaned over to a young Chinese-American visitor nearby.

That is one convenient story-telling dresser..it has pictures and letters and everything to easily explain everything for Fogg…who is an idiot.

Fogg…the last to know.

Screaming China-Man….”Please let me go. I am bored!”

Ding Ding Ding….no no…Ding Dang Dong…Passpourtout

Mr. Grumpy and the leatherettes

Your silly bracelet.

French ladies like to spit.

This is some good fighting.

Jackie Chan has his ass stuck in a cart. Go home to momma.

10 Tigers!

Chair and Ladder assists are always in Jackie Chan fighting.

I really admire the Chinese people. They always seem to put a lot of work in…that’s why I hate to see someone get thrown into a pile of collected work…like when I a Chinese citizen sorts all those skittles by color just to have a bad guy get tossed into it. ugh.

Public Urinater got to do what a public urinater got to do. I think I got some pee pee on me.

an hour and 20 minutes in and act 2 is over…time for act 3

Does this wall ever end? It’s like some kind of great wall. Perhaps you will run into Matt Damon. I wish a I had a valet

I’m such a Rutabaga.

Drug broker.

Alms…for the poor?

A wild Rob Schneider appears…and smells like a dead horse.

I’ll cut you with my wooden spoon! You devil worshipping drawer.

Got to be a record for Cameos in a Filmsack movie.

Where are the Flying Men! The bird men are coming.

A man who lives what he dreams

So did Disney just have a few actors on payroll they needed to use?

haha….was sad when I realized this was not Shanghi Knights…then happy again when Cowboy Owen Wilson showed up…then sad again when Luke Wilson appeared.

Crazy English Wanna Be Cowboy Man….get out the way.

America loves a good wager

Taking a “Steamer” to London.

That was one epic battle.

She is the 11th Tiger and Finally…a lady punches a lady out.

Formula…The Threesome. Man/Woman romance and Third Wheel who has a seperate agenda but is friends with both man and woman.

How many filmsack films have The Statue of Liberty in them?

Did we do Ghostbusters 2?

Captain no nips hasn’t gotten any since the shark attack

Most people would laugh at you. not us. We care about you

Birds is the idea…burn birds.

New nipples for a boat. You had me at the nipples

Those poor sailors…stuck at sea with a captain with no nipples.

As most American Technology of the late 1800s…powered by a china-man

It’s a slinky…fun for Lord Kelvin

Look out for darts in the back

Street people are afraid of bird people….

We didn’t go to New Zealand

I’m a battered Lord

Big fat royal bottom!

She’s behind me isn’t she.

In another timeline…the queen of England hobbles James Caan…and in another she takes a sit in a hot tub with Jack Nicholson.

I am not even going to try to figure out timezones.
