    Probably one of the funniest scenes in cinema history for me. It is the only Indiana Jones scene that I will go back and watch even now. Even the Rocket sled leading up to it is so over the top.

    I am really hoping Butcher takes out Homeland with his new powers but that would never happen unless the series got cancelled. Forcing Deep to eat his Octopus friend was pretty savage.

    It's half of the book as it should be at a bare minimum. I liked Lynchs Dune but it feels like a B movie compared to this. This is truer to the book which is a great thing
