What... THINGS... did... WE... LEARN?!
« on: January 25, 2013, 01:30:26 PM »
We learned at the very least a Rifftrax with Christopher Walken in it is a must have and as a bonus we get Michael Ironside?!  Man, could there be anything more watchable?

I learned just how oily revolutions can really be.

I learned that if anyone invokes my father's Vietnam division, I must drop everything and join their cause.

I learned that causing an international incident is all worth it for some mediocre tail.

I learned that Walken used to be typecast as a slightly unhinged Vietnam vet.
I survived the San Diego Comic Con 2010 Hall H stabbing.

Green Lantern secretly served in Vietnam as "Roberto Santos."

Why is the like option not available in this thread for some reason?

I learned that causing an international incident is all worth it for some mediocre tail.
LIKE

Maria Conchita Alonso never really did anything for me either. Haven't seen this one yet, but is she as attrocious of an actress here as she is in Predator 2?

I learned that America is awesome.

I learned that when you are holding a Columbian dictator hostage with a gun, you should not give him the gun.
Oh bite me, it's fun!

I don't necessarily find her unattractive.  She's just not "center of attention in an action move"/"our hero's chick" attractive.  And certainly not "drop everything, commit several felonies, kill bad and potentially innocent people while also potentially cause an international incident" attractive.  It must be said hair style and wardrobe in this movie doesn't serve her well.  Her acting in it?  Oy.

I learned that even when he's not trying, Michael Ironside still steals a scene even when he's sharing it with freaking Christopher Walken!

I learned that some guns can shoot bullets through two aircraft windows without breaking them and kill the guy on the other side.

I also learned that Rifftrax will never, ever figure out proper audio mixing.

We do see a small bullet hole in at least our main characters' plane which is probably about right given the double-paned aircraft "glass" used in aircraft and certainly used in fighter jets.  What's more remarkable is how the bullet holes didn't depressurize either aircraft since both were flying at altitude.

 I learned it is really hard to tie up a steering wheel to keep it straight, and some fighter pilots have really crappy reaction times so they just can't jump out of anything fast enough.

 Oh and also in that same scene I learned that you really need a fuel truck rigged to explode to knock down a gate.  Even though it seemed like the truck all by itself was doing a pretty good job, the explosion really helped, ah, clear out the empty area beyond the gate...?

I learned that "Michael Ironside" is a person that people know. I just thought, "Wow, that white man has a fantastic ass," but then my husband's all "Wow, that's Michael Ironside," like that would mean something to me.

I also learned that the physics in this movie would never work at all. When I asked my personal physicist if the firing a gun out of a plane would successfully kill the enemy pilot, he said "Yeah, sure. Go get 'em girls." He was also super impressed with the GPS salad spinner add-on for your laptop.
