Miami Vice (2006) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

Hold on a sec…how do you even operate this stupid old style cell phone…ahh… you flip this…and flip this… and boop “Yeah Hello, This is Detective “Sonny” Crocket of Miami-Dade PD. Patch me through to your SAC. Hello? Weird it sounds like I’m talking to someones crotch…Hello, if you can hear me…I need to talk to your SAC…. The Special Agent in Charge… oh good….he heard me.”

“Yeah hello, what’s my badge number and birth date? Listen, I ain’t got time for that…it’s 11:47 o’clock on Saturday night and Neptune is downstairs handing out booty slaves like an attactive bartender handing out Mojitos. That’s the hand we have been dealt.”

“What’s that? Hold on…I can’t hear you…Tubbs…C’mon man. I’m on the phone. You can’t stand next to me and make 3 and 4 phone calls while I am talking on my phone….It’s distracting…go stand over there….further…keep going…ahh shit. Listen SAC…I gotta call you back…Tubbs just went over the side of the building… HEY TUBBS! YOU CAN’T NEGOTIATE WITH GRAVITY!”

Stupid…talking while I’m talking. Now I really do need a Mojito.



Miami Vice (2006) – Like Trudy would say. “I ain’t playing.” also like a 2 hour starring contest set to music.


Mighty Mighty Mullet

Meanwhile….Glaring at the club.

This club seems too hot to be wearing full body silver suits

“You got your tan in Miami.” – Sonny

What is up with 3? I’ll go with 2.

The guy getting the prostitutes is wearing Sonny’s TV suit.

2006 video phones.

I kind of dig this film grain look they got going on. Feel like I am watching it on a 19″ TV with OTA

Patch us through to your sack? Pretty sure I heard it wrong. Is that what Sonny told the Miami FBI Office?

2 phone calls at the same time on a roof!! No way man….Everything in this movie is either 100 miles an hour or a flat dead stare stop

at 11:47 o’clock on a Saturday night…that is the case we have been handed

What about Neptune!! It’s his lucky night. Lucky Pimping

How slow was Elonzo going that Miami Vices had time to get off the roof of a building and get their car and hit the highway and catch up with him.

You don’t have to go home. Hey, watch out for that Semi.

Roof top meetings, Highway Side Meetings, Parking Lot Meetings, Harbor Meetings.

Meanwhile, that don’t track.

Go-fast boats. GO FAST

Noooo…not the go fast boats…you bastards!

Hey…we need a reason to see a couple people naked. Weird Shower to Sex Scene…

“Tubbs…your place smells like the booty sex.”

That USB Drive has seen a lot of hands. I would for sure be Purelling my hands. A lot of people are touching the drive who don’t even need to touch the drive.

What is up with your interview (interrogation) room painting? That is a lot of teeth.

“You didn’t do time with us then you don’t do crime with us.” Sonny Undercover

“You must do that thing exactly.” “The thing we say” – Hair with glasses

Miami Vice should be called “So What’s In A Look Anyways?”

1 blip 1 plane

“You don’t like us finding your load.” Sonny

meanwhile in Cuba by the TRex hotel

Sleeping with the enemy…a very dangerous proposition.

Never conduct business in Cuba…instead it is always Mojitos and love making.

2nd shower sex scene.

Always such interesting shots. Everything is a landscape shot. Even the body shots

This movie is shot like Cigarette and Car advertisements you saw in magazines during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Kind of like a perfume commercial as well.

So is Chris Cornell her love making music?

Down in the mean Streets of Styrofoam

I’m watching you watching them…watching…dancing…music…watching

“Probability is like Gravity. You can’t negotiate with Gravity.” – Sonnie (Foreshadowing?)

Tubbs is worried I am in too deep.

Does the lightning signify anything?

“Try Paradise Trailer Park Near The Airport” – Captain

and the most ridiculous explosion of a trailer goes to Miami Vice 2006

Trudy has been through it.

Like Trudy would say. “I ain’t playing.”

Man, this movie delivered on the Miami Vice Vibe

The Butterfly Effect (2004) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

Dear Blackout Diary,

Today, I saw a baby checking the mail with his chubby little baby hands. Oh Baby, what could you possibly be expecting in the mail? Baby Food samples? Gerber life insurance for your questionable high risk baby lifestyle? Meh….maybe baby was just trying to intercept a letter intended for his mom about his adult like behavior at daycare? Well…that’s too much for my brain..BLACKOUT

Oh hey Blackout Diary one more thing. Why do all dads suck? I mean I feel like I am living in a Lifetime movie of the week where all the men are either crazy, sex offenders or just plain absent. It’s messed me up bad. This morning  I tried making cereal with a knife. BLACKOUT

Alrighty, Well, I gotta go…my crazy dad is choking me out. Ohh…this is the closest to a hug I have gotten from him in years. I’ll take it! I love you too daddy. gurgle BLACKOUT!




The Butterfly Effect (2004) – Like leaving a note on your girlfriend’s coffin that says “I’ll come back for you.”  Hey, you sure you want to leave that note for the grave diggers to find that night with no context? Blackout.


The button fly effect.

It’s a butterfly chaos theory!

I can’t write things unless…I …say …them…out…loud

13 years earlier.

Mom has her mechanic suit on…and she fixed the car…but she needs to fix those brakes!

Too dangerous for dad to come out.

Hey…your kid drew a thing…..and it disturbs us.

Evan is an awesome artist! The subject is questionable…but the execution…amazing.

“Let’s look at your brain!” – Dr. Brain

What did his dad have?

When he was a kid he read his letters in his head when he wrote them.

See what a real father is like.

Evan…I got a knife….how did I get here?

“What are you doing with that knife?”….”I was just making some cereal”

Hey…let’s take some video with Eric Stoltz. This does not look like the usual Stoltz…

What kind of stress can a 7 year old have.

If your dad seems sleepy…it’s just the drugs!

…and I’m getting choked out.

Six years later.

Dads in this movie…suuuuck….I knew dad had a blockbuster down here.

Don’t blame it on the blackouts.

What is in the box! Popcorn at the movies.

Don’t you ever bring up the mailbox again.

I am beating up this guy…but I’m thinking of you.

That kid is one bad apple.

“I’ll come back for you.” WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? You gonna kill me?

I write notes…I write a lot of notes.

Seven Years Later….so that is 14 years later…that is in the future. We are all in the same TimeZone. So this is after. No…it was 6 years and then 7 years…so I guess that is solid.

Bad Date Evan…Bad Date

Lenny has problems…..Lenny’s room.. Evan wants to remember and Lenny wants to forget.

Holy hell…Lenny can be scary.

Blackout Journals…

FUUU…Who let’s their baby check the mail!

Evan’s roommate is a freak.

ooohh…his dad was your exact age when he tried memory regression.

I bet she stanks. Working at the diner all night…smoking.

She emancipated…and mom had a new family and not enough room

His sister killed herself?

Duuuude….do not put a note on an uncovered coffin that says “I will come back for you”…are you trying to freak out the grave guys.

I have an idea….let’s go down to the basement…yeah…never a good idea.

Evan doing the walk of shame.

Nosebleeds are for suckers.

Dude…you screwed up your life…you are all sorority and crap now.

Oh no…you killed Tommy!

They would for sure not put you in a max prison for killing someone who was trying to kill you.

When they come for you…go somewhere else in your head.

Mom…you didn’t bring my journals!! MOM…I’m in prison…

What prison is this…every single person is tougher than you.

He’s not very good at beating up anything…except his pillow.

“Hey Kids…Imagine what you want to be.” How about a murderer…also…Stigmata paper punch!

Duh…you ain’t smart if you pull your pants down

Never give Lenny a weapon with vague instructions.

Hey Lenny…can I get you anything? Like a shard?

This final form with no hands is really the best for everyone except Evan. Suck it up Evan. Here…hold this Granola bar.

So I am assuming all of his journals are gone.

Oh man…he is way too happy to find out his mom has lung cancer. Thats right…now I can fix my hands and blame it on mom’s cancer.

His dad used photo albums. Does Butterfly Effect 2 and 3 go back to the dad’s stories.

Eight Years later. In the city. So we go back 13. Forward 6. Then Forward 7. Then forward 8.

Poor Lenny….he loses a lot.

This movie should have been called “Bad Dads” Where was Lenny’s dad? Evan Dad tried to strangle his. Kayleigh and Tommy were sexual abused.

Skyline (2010) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

and welcome to the Skyline Help Line Hot Line where you have questions and we have…..hey is that dog wearing a sweater vest?!

You still have questions. Ok. I’m here for you.

Why are the aliens stealing our brains? Excellent question. Hey, what’s the deal with that  Concierge. How come he is the only one who seems to have his crap together? Except when it comes to lighting fancy rich people cigarette lighters. He should have brought his Zippo!

Nailed it. Next!

Why is the movie called Skyline? Listen kid. Go away. You’re bothering me. After this crap job I have to head over to the brain processing plant and put brains in alien mechs for 12 hours. Hey look…pretty lights…..oooooooh….




Skyline (2010) – Hey…let me Axe you a question: “is this movie like aliens impregnating your city skyline with brain abducting aliens for lord knows what.” too many questions!


We are impregnating your city like you did to your girlfriend Jared…wake up

Meanwhile on Delta.

J-Rock & T-Money

No Business on my birthday

What does he do in showbizness that makes you sweaty?

Jared is a painter….Terry is….

It’s LA…it’s an earthquake

How long between 4am and sunrise! A quick walk up to the roof.

Dude…you didn’t hold the door?

Don’t look at the skyline

It’s a people sucker! Hoover’d

Are they pushing on the pull door. No Elaine! Don’t look

Just our luck…the world is in danger and all we have to save us is this group.

Don’t look at the light…it will control you.

He’s infected! He has the skyline!

Old man Walt and his dog

Walt saw the people in the sky.

Dang Walt Dog and his little Walt dog jacket.

Uh oh…she found your pics with Terry.

Would 100% take the steps down in a situation over an elevator

Terry…stop shooting that little shit…also…Problem solved for Terry’s girlfriend

You can kill them!

Or maybe not…Brain eater!

haha….she is like…we are back where we started…I told you so.

Hey Jared…T-Bone is gone…I’m your new friend. Suck it Boss.

Ahh…the old Aliens can’t stay here but so long trope?

Foreshadowing…looking into the light…

Looking into the light makes you feel powerful.

uh oh…things just got real tragic…no water!

His Skyline marks look like chest hair.

That was pretty bad ass dogfight right in the middle of all this crap. Woooooo…we took down one of their ships…wooooo

It worked…we are all irradiated…but it worked… one down.

awww…c’mon…it’s putting itself back together.

Stupid self repairing alien ship.

Concierge of doubt….never takes chances…that’s why he is alive and T-Money is dead.

He’s all aliening out.

haha…their brain’s are pretty easy to axe. Let me axe your alien brain a question. many brains does this alien have!

Time to fight like a monkey man!

Love is a battlefield.

Why won’t this lighter light!?

Jared has red brain matter.

Oh Jared…you took over that alien body.

So why are the aliens here to get brains to put in the alien bodies?

Theory: This whole movie is an allegory about conception and the first trimester of pregnancy. It’s beauty, pains and unknowns.

5 Term Dick

Blimps always do better in Alternate Time-lines

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – Filmsack Show Notes


[oooh…yes I’ve made some poor life choices that’s for sure Scott]

[Hey, you done with that soda? Mind if I dip my comb in it. Thanks!]

Oh hi,

Yes, this is Spielberg. What am I doing right now? Well ‘m just sitting here chilling and eating some fried chicken with my good buddies George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy like we do every Saturday night.

What’s that? Do we want to do another Indiana Jones film? Nah…I don’t think so…..wait…hold on. George is handing me something  something he wrote on the inside of an empty KFC Family Meal Sized Chicken Bucket. Oh it’s really greasy….and now I can see that it is an outline for Indiana Jones 4….

So…maybe…I mean I don’t think we can top the first 3 movies. Those movies had Nazi Face Melting Arks and Stolen Power stones in the hands of a mad Voodoo Heart Doctor and then that one with the cup of everlasting life with the caveat of having to live alone forever in a cave full of cups you can’t drink from….

but I’m sure we could come up with something…

Uh oh…Hold on..George is ransacking the fridge…. hey  George stop throwing all my food on the floor ya freak..nooo… don’t crawl in there…… and now he shut the door. Alright, looks like I’ll have to get back to you on this Harrison. Capital Idea old boy. Highest Marks! Gotta go.

Hey, Kathleen grab that prop E.T. finger over there and let’s see if we can prod George to open that fridge…ah crap..look out. He’s got the poison darts I keep in the fridge.




Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) – and I’m out of characters…wait…If reacting is acting…then Spielberg captured all of that and a greasy LaBeouf.


Prairie Dog?

Them kids and their V8 hotrod ain’t up to no good.

Elvis is a hound-dog…eating peanut butter sandwiches all the time.

ahhh…some weapons testing going on today.

Them is Ruskies!

Who dat in the trunk…

Great transitions Spielberg. RUSSIANS!

We were younger…we had guns…- indy

Warehouse 51

Always loved the Indy punch sounds

Mack and Indy were in Mexico digging in the dirt looking for this stuff. Now in Nevada

“I’m sorry…I meant drop dead comrade.”

Wubble-U’s…Highest Marks

Irina thinks she is psychic.

10 years prior…1947…where does that fall in the Indy time-line?

Magnetic box…let’s go find it…gunpowder points the way.

If reacting is acting…then Spielberg captured all of that.

Spielberg is great at noir type lighting

“You don’t know him…You don’t know him….you don’t know hiiiim” -Mack

The red scare? 1957

I need a picture of Sean Connery looking off into space on my desk.

Enter LaBeouf on a motorcycle.

Hey old man!?

LaBeouf just dipped his comb in the soda on the next table over.

Doom (2005) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

Yes? yes, this is Sarge…What am I doing? right now? Oh Nothing much, Just sitting here shirtless in front of my computer shopping for shirts that I will most likely outgrow in a month. What’s that? Semper Fi, Shop or Die? oh yes…very clever sir.

So, what can we do for you today? Are my guys up for a quick trip to Mars by way of the bowels of the Nevada desert? Yeah, we can do that. Hey, has anyone told Elon Musk we found that portal? No, so he’s still shooting his cars into space? Man, he’s gonna be so bummed when he finds out. Sorry rocket man, maybe smoking pot can be your new hobby..

Anywho, Hey, while I have you on the line sir….can you look into getting me access to one of those BFGs for the barracks. The other guys here never invite me to indoor batting practice anymore and I feel like a Big Friendly Gun would really go a long way towards making things right.

Hey! Wait a minute…Reaper! As in Grimm Reaper…because his last name is Grimm….ohhhh…I just got that.  Now my handle seems kind of lazy….Sarge… Doot Doot




Doom (2005) – Like an extra chromosome of bad movie making. Doot Doot


Year 2026 Portal to Mars (The Ark) In Nevada…who made it? Musk?

Mars has gotten a lot of bad movies about it.

How did that portal work the first time? You go in…you are on mars…and dead.

Lab coats run!

Doctor Carmack…hehe…he is out of here…just like ID software

LVL 5 Break! Quarantine.

Just computing shirtless.

That is some weak game system or 2026

Pretty sure you should not be taking batting practice in the barracks.


You hesitate…people die.

Stairway to heaven. Elevator to hell. It’s always easier to go to hell.

standard quarantine…6 hours.

Portal Ball…

Wheels! He lost his ass to another universe.

What…they don’t have bras on Mars?

Reaper Grimm…I GET IT!

Got to mark the way.

This movie is dark.

dummy…don’t touch stuff when an asshole tells you to touch it…electrified!

Who had the BFG schematics pulled up.

Lucy…found on Mars!

Who was Daddy Grimm? Why did he teach them to look at how many chromosomes?

“You don’t shield a baby from time” -Grimm Speak

Just gonna Van Gogh myself real quick. Rip my ear off.

Carmack. Logic before emotion. I wonder what Carmack thought about his namesake character?

Little green pills! Doot Doot. Let’s get jacked. Doot Doot. Adrenaline. Doot Doot.

ow…arm gore. I took him name in vain…so going to poke my vein

Nah Nah… I don’t do Nano Walls.

“A Monkey…Some kind of monkey!”

Look at the size of that needle they are taking his blood out with. LOOK AT IT!

Everybody is always talking about bagging and tagging…but I never see the bagging or the tagging.

Portman is weird…did they dub all of his dialogue?

Grimm lost his parents.

Pinky no legs. pinky wheels.

Dr. Willittits!! NOOOOO

Great melee move Reaper

He dead

is she going to scream every time Goat bangs his head on the glass?

BFG Big Friendly Gun

Portman has nervous bowel

haha…Destroyer cage match with what used to be lab assistant Johnson.

Destroyer got destroyed.

Why do they have test animals if it is archaeological research.

Chromosome 24

Carmack is a rocket scientist

Chromosome will either make you an angel or a devil

Pinky must have been extra evil

Everything after Grimm’s C-24 injection was a dream?

The whole movie should have been like the last 20 minutes
