They're also playing Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance, a PS2 game, with N64 controllers.
This scene was the biggest inspiration for me to make
Fun Fact: in the DVD commentary he mentions that he just stumbled upon the t-shirt in the wardrobe for that day's shooting and tought it would be funny to wear it. Apparently someone in the wardrobe dept put it there without Paul knowing.
Probably a camera
They show up a couple times, I think.
There are also a bunch behind the door in the hostess truck too.
Except it's a photoshop - here's the scene
This is an old Photoshop.
Truly, the genius of the Wayans brothers knows no bounds.
To be fair, you have to have a very high iq to understand the Wayan’s brothers humour...
Also in that same scene, there's a sign for which is the brewery Lverne and Shirley worked at.
As sophomoric as the Wayne's brothers movies, they do have a level of subtle humor that is lost on a lot of people
Major Payne is still one of my all-time favorites
I actually fucking died laughing.

Hello crime stoppers, I’d like to report a murder
I'll bet the audience there is filled with people we know. Good catch OP, find us more now!! Is that Castro behind him?
I think it might be
The movie took place in the early 60s. They were alive then. Stalin wasn't.
I like it when they use actual pictures of actors (e.g. a younger them) in movies
My favourite example of this is in Arrested Development, where they show a "before plastic surgery" picture of Charlize Theron's character. The picture they used was her in Monster.
This is the director's cut, btw, in case anyone is wondering why they don't remember this at all.
And later on, Lucille's after plastic surgery picture is used as a monster in a movie!
To my knowledge the connection between the films was confirmed.
While you are correct about that sequence in The Wolverine, James Mangold was the director for both films. It’s just as easy to make Logan adapt to Wolverine as it is for him to imagine the plot of Logan only 4 years ahead of time. Most filmmakers think ahead like that.
Also his character arc has him doing a 180 on being a loner, for the sake of his daughter. A child or loved one is often called “my love” or “my heart” so how is that far-fetched? She changed him. He loves her enough to sacrifice everything for her survival. She is his heart.
Source: Am film director. Have thought about character arcs, symbolism and potential sequels to my films, including multi-film plants and payoffs.
"This is what it feels like?"
And it worked. Gave him a leg up on commanding the other slaves. I’m sure Mr. Candy was fooled. Fantastic movie.
As others said - wasn’t this the point of it all though? Project the image of a frail, nasty, worn-out slave that wasn’t really useful anymore to do anything else than oversee the other slaves?
It’s pretty apparent in the scene during the dinner where he asks Mr Candy to briefly join him in the study where his demeanor shifts completely - he talks in a lower more stable tone, he sits relaxed in an armchair, converses with Mr Candy in a very casual tone and to top it all off he’s also poured himself a bourbon using one of the fine glasses.
He plays the fool in order to get people to dismiss him as a crazy old coot so that he can observe and try to discern intentions and weaknesses. To be a spy for Mr Candy simply put.
It’s been a few years since I last saw the movie but I seem to remember Candy being boisterous about how he inherited Candyland and joked about how Jacksons character awas part of the deal and that he served Candys father as well. Jacksons character has been with the Candy’s since forever as the family’s eyes and ears on the farm and the current Mr Candy is very aware of it.
My take on it.
I had a brief discussion with my cousin when we noticed this...at the time, we concluded that he faked an injury a long time ago and it helped him get a cushier position, leading to him eventually getting that top spot. Just guesses tho.
Not sure if I'd call this a detail so much as I'd call it "the point"
First time I saw TLJ I thought Luke wasn't leaving marks due to his elegance as a fighter vs the roughness of Kylo. Turns out I was wrong.
The fact you noticed it at all is good looking out. I didn’t see it until the 2nd time I watched it.
Another give away is how his beard has less grey. I remember being confused by that in the theater
Another is that his lightsaber is Anakin's blue lightsaber which we saw was destroyed moments ago in Snoke's throne room.
There's nothing wrong with having that opinion, but the discussion is better suited to /sub/movies.
Edit: Or /sub/truefilm as others have pointed out.
Stating your opinions in /sub/movies is a terrible idea
