[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!]
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.
DROP DEAD GEORGE! SORRY, I MEANT DROP DEAD, TURTLENECK.
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.
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…
ahhh…we know who dat is. Nice use of silhouettes Spielberg. so icon. GET YOUR HAT before I staple it to your hand Indy.
Great transitions Spielberg. RUSSIANS!
We were younger…we had guns…- indy
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.”
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.
First Name Speed…Last Name Racer.
…and now it’s time for “What you talkin’ about Theme Song?”
Where I will do my best to present talking points and avoid singing along the way.
Here he comes, Here comes Speed Racer.
Hey, thanks for the heads up song writer. That’s not ominous at all.
He’s a demon on wheels, He’s a demon and he’s gonna be chasin’ after someone.
Let’s break that down. A “Demon on wheels;” Well, that is a thing we say about people who are driven.
However, the second mention of demon is not qualified with any sort of type. Which leads me to believe that this song is implying that Speed Racer is an actual demon. Well that changes things.
Oh what did you do Papa Racer!?
He’s gainin’ on you so you better look alive.
Holy crap. The “chasin’ someone” is now no longer in question. It’s “you” who the demon racer is chasing!
Also, there are rumors circulating that Speed Racer lures little kids and monkey’s with Candy into the trunk of his car!
You nothing but evil Speed Racer!
He’s busy revvin’ up a powerful Mach 5.
And when the odds are against him
And there’s dangerous work to do
You bet your life
Speed Racer, Will see it through.
A Life wager! Nope! Nuh uh! Nope!
Go Speed Racer! Go Speed Racer! Go Speed Racer, Go!
Straight back to hell ya doe eye’d demon!
Randy, what movie did you watch?
