Movie refrences

Looks like this one is going to be full of classic movie references like the first, only got to the first boss and already they got in a Predator reference. See you at the party richter!

Edit: Also post any pop culture references including music, tv and any thing else you can think of that made you laugh.

Yeh Twisted pixel seem to be good at that. Comic Jumper was full to the brim with movie quotes & references.


Away to play the beta now.


EDIT: Half way through the second level. She says "I'll never let you go Jack". Which will be from Titanic.

In the prologue the giant robot smashes through the wall and says "Here's Johnny!" This is probably from the Stephen King movie "The Shining".

The achievement What Did You Do, Ray? is an obvious Ghostbusters reference.

It's possible that I just misheard, but I believe he said "Heeeeeere's Johnny...Five!", making it a double reference to both The Shining and the robot from the Short Circuit movies.

Also, when the robot first arrives he says "I'm your boyfriend now!", which is a quote from A Nightmare On Elm Street. I love these little things they throw in, unlocked the full version today and am loving it!

Edit: She's just said "Nobody puts baby in the corner!", which is from Dirty Dancing

Without spoilers seeing as the game is still quite new, the final boss contains a classic quote from The Running Man, and I'm fairly certain the death scene for the second boss is supposed to be a homage to Terminator 2 (which was quite clever of them, seeing as the boss doesn't have hands ).

Just had her say 'I'll have what she's having' which is from When Harry Met Sally, i think.
And 'Take my breath away' is a song from Top Gun.
'You had me at hello' from Jerry Maguire.
'I'm ready for my close up, Mr De Mille' is from Sunset Boulevard.

The little robot says "Don't touch my cookies!" or something along those lines in a notably obvious Arnold Schwarzenegger voice; referencing Jingle All the Way.

Pretty sure she says "I'm not bad, I just splode that way" but the reference still stands.

Also, she does the Carlton dance from Fresh Prince.

"Snozzberries? Who ever heard of a snozzberry?" is from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and she does a brilliant Veruca Salt voice to go with it

There's also "I must break you" in the final boss' mid-match screens, which is appropriately from Rocky IV. And as it hasn't been mentioned yet, the intro to level 2-1 with Mandy is a reference to Total Recall.

The funny thing is, I re-read the posts twice during my post preview to make sure it wasn't already posted haha Silly ol' alcohol.

Here's another one then! The timed bombs that you sit on have saddles on them, making it a likely reference to Dr. Stangelove where Major Kong straddles and rides a launched H-bomb like a rodeo cowboy.

There's a couple more Ghostbusters references.

A box pops up at some point telling you about your Ghost, and it says "I AIN'T 'FRAID OF NO GHOST"

There's also a Banner on Level 1-1 with "Conglaturation" on it, which is an obvious reference to the main spelling error that comes up at the top of the screen that appears after you complete Ghostbusters on the NES.

Usually, along with "Consider this a divorce" she says "You're fired" from True Lies. She also sings I'm Just a Girl by No Doubt. Also, after she sings "If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get my friends" she says "Ew."

She does the Macarena.

Dude! Great find! I didn't even take the time to really look at the banners. I just thought they were all generic "CONGRATULATIONS!" Great eye.

There's a "Mission Accomplished" sign in 1-1, same style sign that was on the air carrier Bush gave his speech on when he was talking about winning the war/war being over.

If you travel along star road long enough, Twisted Pixel takes a hillarious shot at Capcom, referencing when Capcom's mobile division ripped off 'Splosion Man.

Haha, cheers mate

I also spotted another reference.Not a Ghostbusters one, but a reference all the same.

I think it's on Level 1-5. (it's one of the 1- Levels anyway)
Right before another section of jumping on the hovering ships, there's a cutscene where it shows a Scientist flying a ship close up, and he starts humming a tune.
The tune he's humming is the Dallas Theme Tune (It was a massive show in the 70s, incase any of our younger Gamers here were wondering).

Is the quote "Don't go chasing waterfalls" a reference to anything? Ms Splosion Man keeps saying it, and I know I've heard that quote before...

EDIT: Never mind. It comes from the song "Waterfalls" by TLC. Knew I heard it before

Good lord. Trying to recognise all the references and nods in this game is a game in itself. And they're fantastic.
