Title: miscellaneous PTA homages

We must have had a thread about this kind of thing at one time (I can't find one).

Here's one from Three Kings:

Its weird. The amount of times I've watched TK's and never spotted that!

I think there was one in a Six Feet Under episode, it was along the lines of 'raining frogs' instead of 'cats and dogs'. Some Alan Ball, American Beauty Vs Magnolia screenplay, Oscar tribute.

the "wise up" montage in austin powers - goldmember:

it didn't make the final cut which i don't understand. it's really good, funny and also touching. we see various close ups of the main characters sing a song and it's made just like the wise up scene in magnolia. here's a cap:

Dirk changed his name to Troy after the plot for Boogie Nights ended... he then went back home to Torrance and married a chick that looks a little like Rollergirl mixed with Amber Waves... they had kids and he bought a market... instead of using his sausage for his main business, he decided instead to clean stains caused by sausages.

I think the Austin Power homeage is the real stretch.

not at all. the whole joke is that they're making fun of magnolia. the reason they cut it out is probably because only dork pta fanboys would get it, and that's not the target austin powers audience.

It's not a stretch. It's mentioned as an homage to "Magnolia" in the commentary track.

There is an epic whip pan in this weather video. I almost fell out of my chair.

That's great. Does anybody know, generally speaking, is there usually an edit built into most pan whips or does it whip in whatever direction and it's still the same shot?

If my memory serves me correctly I think I came to the conclusion there were no cuts in a lot of the Magnolia ones apart from the obvious. I could be very wrong though.
Title: Re: miscellaneous PTA homages

Yeah, a traditional whip pan will have an edit. You just join the 2 edit points where the images are moving fast. And in the same direction. That's pretty much all you have to do... whip pans are surprisingly easy.

The whip pan in that clip works especially well because they're whipping from trees to trees. (And there's clearly an edit, cause the guy can't be standing in both places.)

Guess this could go here.  (It's an homage by PTA.)

This is from 2014, but I couldn't find any mention of it here.  Did you guys ever see Topher Grace's re-edit of "Angels Live in My Town"?  The video is at the end of the article.

Really makes me want to see the entire film by which we all remember Jack Horner.

Someone named "Boyd Waltman" on Youtube has edited almost a dozen PTA tribute vids (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFWkr9Uv5-HNMIBvFbub4oRQCGb2WGFEK).  (We're all coping in our own ways.)

I'm choosing to call this an homage.   Or, maybe it just made me smile and I wanted to share.

This HAS to be well-known around here already, right??  It was referenced in the Nayman/PTA interview today, and being very uncool, I had no idea what he was referencing.    I'll nuke it if it's old news.

NSFW

LOL.  Too good.  I've seen this before way back when.  And I always thought of this song when the window/wall scene is happening.  This cannot be "One of those things..."  This, please, cannot be that.  Someone needs to show PTA this.  I'm sure he'd lose his shit too.  It may as well be a red band trailer.

Also, someone in the comments says that PTA jokingly confirmed on twitter that this was a reference to the song.  A quick bit of Google fu and I found the tweet!

I haven't dug very deep yet...what's the song about?   I'm hearing references to testicles and perspiration.   :yabbse-grin:

And specifically the "window to the wall" part...?  What naughtiness is being referred to there?

I just assume it means dancing all over the club, from one end to the other.

I bet RollerGirl told Jack and Amber about LoveExposure over dinner. And Amber actually prefers Star 80 but she doesn't want to hurt Jack's feelings too much. Scotty would probably have an Altered Innocence or 90s queer cut in there ~
