Watch the above video of Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting a crashing airplane, then go read this week’s Forgotbusters on the film it comes from: Eraser, the most Schwarzeneggerian movie ever Schwarzeneggered. (He also punches a CGI alligator at one point, should you need extra incentive.)
I saw this movie *in theatres* and yet completely forgot something as wonderful as this scene exists.
At the end of Lost In Translation, Bill Murray whispers in Scarlett Johansson’s ear, “You should really go read Matt Singer’s essay on why we should stop treating movies as mysteries to be solved.”
"…Forensic cinematology encourages the one attribute the Internet loves (and, increasingly, demands) that its movies contain: a consensus opinion. If you “prove” beyond a shadow of a doubt what Bill Murray said to Scarlett Johansson in Lost In Translation, then from that moment on, everyone has to agree with you."
