King Solomon’s Mines (1985) – Filmsack Show Notes

King Solomon's Mines 1985


Oh hi,

This week on Filmsack we roll our soup bowl back to the 1980s to have an archeo-logical, pre-world war 2 race with the Germans to reach a biblical treasure that everyone says doesn’t exist… all while avoiding being killed by the local inhabitants…oh…you’ve seen this one already? have you?…and everybody’s face melts at the end you say? Ha! You wish…nope…the only face melting happening here is when you try to boil your face-off in a pot of onion soup to escape that feeling you get when you ask your grandma to make you a movie starring Harrison Ford and she brings home Richard Chamberlain yelling “I’ve Got It!” Worst Catch Phrase for throwing explosives ever. I mean why not “It’s Dynooo-mite” as long as you are borrowing things why not borrow from the great Jimmy Walker. Ohhhh…that’s where you draw the line?…Ok Cannon Films. Buuut Brian…this movie is based on the 1885 novel and has a history that lasted up to the 1950s film that was much beloved by that generation … if anything that other movie stole from us… oh shutup …. you know what you did.

Anywho, I’m done having this imaginary argument that never happened. Now somebody fetch me Marian…I mean … Miss Huston and short round … aaaa … no…ummm … don’t tell me… UmmmBopopo … yeah that’s it…get that guy…and now we start our journey to the Mines of Moria … I mean the Boobs of Sheba! Rhys Davies? what are you doing here? Are you here to save me from Bad Dates? What? You’re the bad guy!

Aww screw it…Randy…Boil that pot of onions…I’m taking the easy way out.
