For years my brothers and I would quote the opening line in Mick Jagger's accent: "A'right... Let's do it." We still find that movie hilarious.

BTW: Lost World and Paragon make a very well-thought out pair.

Quoted from TheLaw:

God what a pile of shit that movie was. Had a great trailer at the time, I was working at the movie theatre then, and we were pimped for it coming out. *Thud*

It even has a cool premise! Just horrible execution

Holy cow....I could have written this exact same post. My brother and I had to turn it off right after this scene, it was such a steaming pile of crap. But even after 20+ years I'll say "let's do it" in that stupid accent and he'll crack up.

There is a pinball machine in one of the new Progressive Insurance commercials. There one where the man cave is slowly turning white. The machine is shown for a fraction of a second and then it turns white. What is the game?

Black Knight 2000...but the backglass is changed. Somebody posted about it earlier in the thread. That game has been used in a few things.

Good memory. I posted and pin was identified as a rebranded Black Knight.

Saw this too, thought it was for the new Insidious, not the old one. Just saw the Last Key in theaters. I hate scary movies but the gf loves them. No clue why women love scary movies so much.

You should see his actual game play during the commercial - he's pretty into it.

On Drunk History, they went through the prohibition of pinball and the destruction of games in New York City, and how Roger Sharpe went in front of City Council in 1976 and saved pinball. The reenactment and how they did it was hilarious.

In Scott Pilgrim vs the World, there's 4 pins in the background of the arcade. THREE of them are World Poker Tour, and I think the 4th is Austin Powers, but can't be sure (it's blurry). Sounds like the vendor supplying the pins for the scene had a lot of WPT on hand.

SNL had a Williams Olympic Hockey in one skit the last week of Jan.
