Spawn (1997) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi and welcome to the Marines!

Semper Fi: Do or die!  However, if you do DIE. Be sure to go to straight to hell, do not pass go; do not collect 200 dollars, That’s a joke son, laugh cause you are going to hear a lot of those when you are dead. It’s a real yuck fest in the afterlife.

Anywho, While in hell be sure to make a deal with one of the devils down there. Personally,  I prefer the badly rendered ones.

Be sure keep an eye on the time. A 5 minute meeting in hell can turn into 5 years real quick. Cause, Hell?

When you get back, be prepared fight pun flinging clowns and bearded bad guys with pace makers the size of one of them Electric Lady Schick Razors.

Also, if you run across a kid that keeps calling you Mister. Go ahead and chop it’s head off. It’s a demon in disguise. “Hey mister, you ok? Hey mister, your face looks like a burnt turd. Hey mis…chop!”

The Manhattan Project (1986) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi, Yes Sir Mr. President, per your orders, we dropped that bomb on those filthy cold war Russians.  But I’m saddened to report sir… that we had some pretty unexpected results… Instead of dirty burnt radiated Ruskies it appears all we did was make their hair fuller and shinier. They couldn’t be happier when we flew back by. Where did you say we got that plutonium from? Ithaca?

or

Yes, Hello…is this Kremlin? This is top secret KGB agent reporting in. I have just returned from American nuclear facility in Ithaca. I have brought with me samples of American plutonium. I must say the mission was easier than we had imagined. Ronald Regan American’s are so over confident of their security that they left full sample on a table unguarded. However, if this sample represents the full force of the American’s might then we can sleep well comrade. Early tests have shown that their plutonium is not a very effective explosive. I feel so safe with this container that I slept with it under my pillow last night.  I was surprised to discover this morning that it had sprung a leak during my slumber. When I woke up I was sure that I would have radiation sickness. But instead my hair has never been fuller or shinier. and smell it….oh…this is a phone joke.

Yeah I know that’s not how that works. But this movie could be called “That’s not how any of this works…now get out of my glove box KidGyver.

Lost In Space (1998) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Danger Scott Johnson. Danger.

Brian doesn’t think he wants to live in a future where robots refer to themselves in the third person and announce every directive, program and subroutine. Robot powering on. Robot defragging. Robot  rebooting.

What if robots today announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning Johnson house. Roomba is sucking a lot of Chili-Cheese Fritos. Roomba does not think this is a normal amount of Chilli-Cheese Frito debris. Please kill Roomba.”

and what’s up with the Robot trash talk.  When Joey attacks Robbie he exclaims. “That was a mistake!”?

Who wrote the re-programming for Robot…Joey Image? “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robot is cooking?”

Brian powering down. Boop

Lost In Space (1998) – Like an ass sack of baby space spiders. Yep. An Ass Sack Of Baby Space Spiders. Danger

NOTES

After the countries of the world stop fighting

United Global Space Force

Drinking water and clean air

Hypergate

The Global Sedition

Launch ourselves into the blackness of space.

Did they just have a Jetson noise on that ship?

Transport. 2 blips in your shadow…ooooh…there it is.

Terrorist! Space Terrorist!

Mutant Suicide Squad.  A lot going on here…

Also…A ship made of Gerbels

This bad guy looks like borg. Gen-Techs

Trope – Where is my wingman? I been hit.

Why are they flying bubble gum machines.

“Does this mean we are going steady? You aren’t getting out of buying beers that easy.” That is some bad dialogue

Jupiter Mission

The SGI & Army

Alpha Prime!

Dewey!

Dewey is a bad kid. Hey…this kid ain’t Dewey. I thought that for years. 19 years.

Smart kid causing trouble at school

Penny Vision Digital Diary. Why do we not have this. But man…talk about foreseeing the selfie generation.

Captain Daniels has the flu! The flu…always keeping astronauts from going on space missions.

There is another group headed to Alpha Prime

So that’s a no to family dinner?

“Apology video for Will” – How does that sound? “Super sorry kid.”

“Where is my money!?”

Awkward Le Blanc

Recycling Technology promise is a lie! We are screwed!

They are in a race with Global Sedition. Cold war space race to Alpha Prime. Apparently we are the west still.

The bad guys gave the captain a virus.

Bad Dr. Smith joke ends with a door bell.

Jeb Walker would be perfect…don’t sell Jeb out.

“These tube will be perfect or this ship will not launch.”

Talented older daughter. Brilliant youngest kid. Middle Child..typical teenager.

Tupperware parties in 2050?

I need a space cake. Made with space batter.

Robot is online. Robot is offline. Robot so fine.

Fat head hologram. I hope the future of holograms is Giant Heads.

So their whole plan to kill him was contingent that he would not try to remove the bad Ziggy device from his suit?

Hey! We built a thing…in the top of this building.

Who made those uniforms? They are kind of form fitting…feels a little too close to bat nipples costuming.

Hard to take Le Blanc serious.

I think Le Blanc could have been an action hero. What other action roles could Joey have tackled?

Stasis in movies. Is that how Stasis would really work? What’s the science here?

Up is go…on your command…I am cool man…that is part of the job…sounding like a radio guy.

“and the monkey flips the switch” – Major

I see even in 2050 we like making space junk. Poof…you made a lot more ship than we need.

“Taking the family camper on an interstellar road trip”

The Statis conundrum. Do you all go to sleep? Is 10 years really a reason.

What kind of robot announces it’s program. I mean I love it…but it’s kind of stupid. Executing Program. Empty Trash. Defragging. Shutting Down.

What if all robots announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning room. Roomba is sucking dirt. Roomba is turning.”

Forgot about Oldman and LeBlanc being on friends episode where he is the actor who spits for effect

Robot trash talk. “That was a mistake!” Who wrote the re-programming for Robbie…a wrestler.. “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robbie is cooking?” Who wrote the robot wrester subroutine?

Us humans typically place robots kill switched in the neck.

DESTROY! DESTROY! (echo “Destroy” goto line 1)

“Robot return to docking back and  power down…also, stop being a dick.”

That is one serious barber chair. In what scenario would you need a chair like that that extends to the ceiling.

Can’t get Judy out. She got a big old booty and it is frozen to her statsis bed.

Penny…Precious…Penny….

Either that uniform sucks or it does not. Can you do CPR over it? if you can…it sucks for protection. If you cannot..then take it off.

For a professor he is kind of dumb…”we are way off course.”

Trope: If you can’t pull away…go through…or slingshot around.

Time floaty freeze…jump!

Anywhere…but here…you got to go!

Plot Twist! Lost….wait for it…in…. Space?

ohh…what’s that? A Battle Scar…. nope…a tattoo…apparently Tattoo removal procedures still suck in the future. Better to do a cover up.

She don’t know how tattoos work. She thinks you can cover them with magic marker.

“Some lucky little nerd you left behind.”

Anomoly in progress! A hole in space…and where does it lead?

“I’ll wait later.” I’ll wait to wait.

Joey shows up… “if this is a dream…why can’t there be more girls.”

United Global Spaceforce…UGS

Penny has the hots for Major West.

“Ta Ta…have a wonderful trip.” – The Doctor.

Will hacked into his cpu to scare his dad. “Hey dad! Remember that time Robot nearly killed us all…Destroy Destroy…ha ha ha…good times.” – Will totally not looking for attention.

Robot jump scare.

Now he is just a droid and no longer a robot. You castrated Robbie’s AI.

I do not like it when Evil is aware that it is Evil. I prefer the oblivious evil. “Oh…I’m the evil one…bummer.”

A future ship piloted by Majors old wingman.

Smith is always messing with robots.

Would love to know all the names that Dr. Smith calls the robot.

Major discovered a space monkey.

What kind of Alien ship has spiders and monkeys

Banana Beef. is that a joke about the custard Rachael made in friends.

I would be concerned if Monkey likes Banana Beef.

“I don’t like the sound of that sound”

Robbie Robot says “Mom says get the hell out of there.”

Controls are too slow…gonna need me some holographic interface.

“ewww…they eat their wounded.” – Will

is there anything worse than Space Spiders?

“A million bucks of weaponry and I would trade it all for a lousy can of Raid.” – Commander

Spider scratch…that ain’t gonna be good.

“Save him! Of course…I’ll put it on a cd-rom! The technology of the future!”

A fast DNA reader….that would be cool.

mmmm…heat…

Major is not good at waiting.

Doctor. Professor. Major. Children. Wife.

As humans…we are always crash landing on habitable planets.

The pod and chariot are scrap metal.

Wife says go for the pissing contest. Has anything ever been solved in a pissing contest…and what are the rules? How do you win?

Technology of the future looks like technology of the past when you  get to the insides.

Let’s name the space monkey Blarp…that sounds like a girls name.

Smith has always been good at causing dissent.

“Sarcasm is the recourse of a feeble mind.” -Major

Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny are future past things. Along with Raid, Tupperware, baseball and bad chicken jokes.

Joey always needs the sex.

Men are from Penis and Women are from the Kitchen

Goodnight montage. Thanks John Boy.

Time for plot 2.

Did Joey just take her water?

Time travel is impossible…nope…improbable.

Son. Stick your Flights Of Fancy.

Robinson S17863-3-d

https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=S17863-3-d&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

“Drama Bot..can not locate motor control.”

“Warm fuzzy feeling when I think about Baseball.”

“Listening to your heart instead of your mind. Put that in your memory banks.”

“Two moons and a crater the size of Miami.” – Major

No…the question is not where are we…but when!

Robbie!

“Why did the robot cross the road? because he was carbon bonded to the chicken.”

I am confused. You use the same “lock” / “unlock” voice commands for gun safety’s and doors? That could cause a problem.

It’s just like stepping between 2 rooms..except you get hit in the face

Billy…Kissing….Billy…Kissing….Popcorn…Kissing.

Middle Aged Will is bitter Will.

I’m both proud and scared of you right now Will.

Dr. Smith is so aware of his evil and monsterness.

Meanwhile on Level Q…we are making a time machine.

Dr. Spider Smith is very Dark Crystal. Love how he moves in that robe. Also, where did he find all that black robe material?

Robot has no heart!

Back off…Robot got this!

So robot can not do first person? He always has to refer to himself in the 3rd person?

Let’s forget the past Will…

Dr. Spider Smith has a back sack of baby spiders.

Will was saved by Grandpa’s dog tags.

We got to go through! It’s the only answer!

Project X (1987) – Show Notes

Intro:

Oh hi and welcome Cadets to  Project X or as I like to call it Project “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Here we have assembled an elite force of Air Force pilots to train a team of carefully vetted primates who we will be working with to test the effects of radiation exposure on pilots in case of a second strike scenario.

Just kidding, we actually gathered the Bad News Bears of flying military personnel to train some chimps picked by a guy on a dock somewhere… what was wearing a “sorting hat.” We then takes those chimps and have them fly through some “bad juju” complete with a Jack In The Box style Global Thermal Nuclear Device that I use to heat my coffee. Shall we play a game? Goliath, my coffee is getting cold. Give it 2 more rads, ya damn dirty ape.

Aim High!

Twitter:

Project X (1987) – Like an actual portrayal of the Air Force; bunch of flying chimps! Just kidding, don’t bomb my house ya damn dirty apes.

Show Notes:

Roll that beautiful stock footage!

Poomba!

That is one serious giraffe. Shoo…fly away bird

Do you ever feel like a giraffe is staring at you?

I know what you did last summer

Meanwhile down at the “Apes for Ants” cafe.

“eat the bug off my stick! eat it! ”

It’s a brush full of  men!

‘Don’t shock the monkey! Cause he’s an ape!”

James Horner does the music! it’s been a while!

Let’s make a deal with the overly enthusiastic  animal poacher.

Who is this guy? The monkey whisperer? The Calaban of apes….he’s the sorting man. Kind of reminds me of Curious George and the man in the banana suit…HAT!

Aww…look how young…no…not the ape… Helen Hunt.

gif by Scott Johnson

Virgil.

This means apple…also, pointing to this apple means apple.

Is it a good idea to eat the monkey’s apple?

Why does the sign for apple look like “She’s abusing me in the face officer.”

“What time is it?” Half past a freckle on a monkey’s ass.

Virgil wants to fly! Just like back at the “I’m Ape For Ants Cafe”

Wonder if that is a real monkey making noises or if it is Helen Hunt?

“No, it’s not play time.” This movie could be subtitled that. Space X: It’s Not Play Time.

gif by Scott Johnson

That is not a real clock dude….what is the sign for “dumbass.”

Virgil is hairy; not stupid.

The National Health Foundation.

Man, I thought cats were expensive. 15k to buy. 10k yearly upkeep.

“Virgil, Fly…like bird…like in Wizard of Oz. Cept with Apes. Why should monkeys have all the fun. Helen Hunt kind of looks like the wicked witch.”

How convenient…Virgil joins the air force. The monkey dreams of flying one day…joins the air force…oh c’mon!

Them monkey are excited to see Virgil. FRESH MEAT!

They ain’t ever going to let him fly again…not in that shirt.

Bueller doesn’t seem like a screw up. wait..

Cue the silly music.

Rule: pound for pound 7 times stronger than us.

“No funny stuff mister” – Do we still say that?

gif by Scott Johnson

Clapping monkey doesn’t know when to clap. “Yay! oh wait…YAY!”

up…up…

Lady with the blond hair…all lady with blond hair look the same to Virgil.

What is Broderick mopping? Is it ape pee? I hope it’s ape pee. or is Broderick sort of the Clarice in this situation. Whenever you walks by the cage/cells Goofy throws ape goo at him.

Moon is in the seventh house but I’m still knocking on the 6th door. Pretty sure that is a rock ballad from the 70s

Circus Chimp. They are the worst. Smoking. Trying to get me to win a prize for my pretty lady.

Humans are stupid. End sentence

captured by Scott Johnson

Thank goodness for sign language lady from United Way who quickly taught Broderick basic sign language.

I don’t believe it! You must have been a united way ape!

dumbass…what did he expect the monkey to be signing. Of course he is signed out. He’s in a cage…you think he is going to be signing “Penthouse Magazine?” That is a totally different gesture.

A new girl in the neighborhood! Let us out…what is the sign for making it like a couple of apes?

gif by Scott Johnson

All of this sign language could been resolved with pointing. Teach an ape to point.

Virgil is making friends with everyone! He’s fulfilling all of the ape desires!  Virgil knows all…he even knows Broderick wants to fly. He’s more than smart..he’s the wishmaster.

He’s an ape genie.

The Joy Of Signing.  We’ve all read it?

Diamond shaped smile ape freaks me out. Make my Diamond face.

great…now my nickname is razzleberry. What would be your Ape Nick name?

Maybe we rename Goofy to Homicidal maniac.

gif by Brian Dunaway

Virgil just got his blue belt…err…collar…TOTALLY not ape slaves.

Pretty sure kissing your trainee is frowned upon. That is like teacher/student loving right there…and that is wrong…right there.

What happened to Watts? Man in the Bucket.

Blue Beard. Walking the mile…walking the ape/chimp mile.

 

Before drones…apes were our best bet to mitigate human losses?

“Trainer evacuate chamber.” – me when playing pokemon go and taking a poo

Slow motion staring ape is scary as hell.

mmm…that’s some good radiated coffee. “How many rads is this coffee son? Give it two more rads would ja”

gif by Brian Dunaway

“Lord of the Apes.”

gif by Scott Johnson

Giving our Apes cute nicknames was probably not a good idea. Unless you want to call them things like Chicken Nuggets. Bag of Popcorn. Defrost.

Come on Virgil. Straighten up…You are making it so easy for me  to want to zap fry you Virgil.

Jimmy fell for the oldest trick in the book…”lemmie see your BIC pen for a minute. GO GET IT BOY!”

“Red Collar equals gurney nap.” – Virgil’s mind

Virgil is a tattletale! “GUESS WHAT I SAW! Hoo hoo hoo! Screech! Gurney Naps For All! hoo hoo hoo”

Trope/True – Old white men are evil.

Not the red neck! Anything but the red neck Jimmy!

Movie Logic: Cause I learned sign language…I am smart at other things as well. I am practically human now.

No way if you break into a room of your superiors and run your mouth do you not get thrown in the brigg.

Off Hour Entry – EpPPpppPpp

Apes stakes good! <- what?

“Way to go Jimmy…we had everything under control until you set off the alarm. Now our sky light escape is ruined Jimmy…Ruined!” – Virgil Ape

Who was Goofy calling on the phone? “Hello, I would like 2 dozen pizzas delivered to the lab the air force base.”

Goofy Bird to you Doctor!

Does Clappy have a nickname…cause I’m calling him Clappy.

Oh how the tables have turned. Good thing we have guns in the locker room.

Quick. Throw away that soda and pizza plate! The doc is here!

Lights Off…Light on…Lights Off….sure I fly experimental planes all day…but this….Lights on…Lights off…this satisfies my OCD…Lights on…Lights off.

…and you wonder why we lock up apes…look what happens when you let them out…they go all Planet of the apes on ya!

Uh oh…you released the radiation pod you fools!

Well..that is what happens when you go all 2001 on the radiation pod Goliath

You want a cig Goliath? Too bad Spock face. Now live short and die.

Virgil is way smarter than Goliath. Cause…sign language!

What is the end game here? You are still a bunch of monkey’s in a plane. It’s not like the Air force is going to just let you go.

How much gas did that plane have? like a gallon. Monkey’s never had to fuel up in the SIM.

“Sir the bottom is too soft.” – please capture audio Scott!

You are free Slave Apes…now form a society of intellectual apes and enslave us humans one day.

Monkey names first in the credits. What about the humans!

Pretty sure this is how Planet of the apes starts.

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!

Germany, 1939. Two children watch as their parents become immersed in the puzzling mechanisms of power. Siggi lives in the affluent ignorance of middle-class Berlin, her father a censor who excises prohibited words (‘promise’, ‘love’, ‘mercy’).

Room 237

You are scared of Room 237…No I ain’t

Stay out of 237

gif by Scott Johnson

 

“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: https://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%

This is Remy.

LISC Liberty Island Security Control.

Chopper 8 needs ome acction.

The happiest Cabaret with Kazoos and Pianos ever. at least Ernest is having a good time.

“Hey you don’t wanna walk around down there snake..” – Something that has never been said before.

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

The Duke of New York. Nobody meets the Duke!

This “Meet The Duke Of New York” Music is very Michael Myers Theme Music-y. Also, Carpenter.

Cabbie named Cabbie

Brain lives in the New York Public Library

Poor ole Fresno Bob

“I’ll just beat it out of your squeeze.”

That one car is mostly tin foil

Disco/Chandelier Car is groovy

4 baddies to stand over pliskin to wait for him to wake up.

How far does that snake Tattoo go down?

Still got that briefcase on his wrist. They will chop off the presidents finger but not get the briefcase off?

That is not how you listen to a cassette tape.

She is stroking that gun

I like that they went through all the trouble of making a clock that is labeled back at the headquarters for the countdown.

new phone
Scott Johnson made me laugh with this

Booo…Snake…Booo

He crawled into the cage pretty willingly. I would crawl back out once I saw giant diaper man.

The Duke wants a snake pliskin hood ornament.

Round 1 is wooden bats.

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.
