reference-ish goodness

i havent seen an indiana jones movie in..oh..lets see...FOREVER.

The Last Crusade has always been my favorite though *i like sean connery, what can i say?* and i was really thrilled to see that there was a connection between Last Crusade and Kevin Smith's "Dogma"

the original...Indiana Jones:
scene: blimp
action: Indiana "disposes" of an adversary by tossing him out of a blimp *i believe..cant remember very well*. the passengers look stunned and Indy reassures them... " ticket..."

the reference...Dogma:
scene: train
action: Silent Bob "disposes" of an adversary and throws him off the train. The passengers look stunned and Bob reassures them " ticket..." =)

MAN i love finding this stuff!

i mean yeah kevin smith movies are nothing but references, but the key is knowing what theyre from, and this one just surprised me!

oh..and of course theres that ever so subtle Hulk reference Ben Affleck makes before killing the cop. but its been done...

oh? what is this? *clicks* OMG! Dogma is on! what a coincidence! ...this has been happening to me a lot lately...freaky... 0_o

Silent Bob reminds me of my Tavy Wav and now i miss him ...*snuggy snuggy kissy kissy!!*

can someone, preferably someone who has seen Dogma more than one time, answer this question? :

why is it that although the muses have met god, they refer to God as a HER, while the voice of god refers to him as a HIM and gets a little aggravated that they refer to God as female after the woods scene with Bethany crying right before they go see cardinal Glick, though at the end of the movie, God is played by Alannis Morisette??? that always confused me. are they trying to represent that God is niether male nor female? even so, why wouldnt they just say that, and why would Metatron get so indignant about calling her female even though thats how she ended up appearing? *if you dont count the NJ bum*

just a thought....Timber im lookin' at you...any thoughts?
