Daybreakers starring Ethan Hawke is a very smart (but also very dumb) movie that's a lot more fun than it needs to be. It's about a world where almost everyone's already been bitten by vampires and blood is getting scarce. We guess it's about oil?
The recently-cancelled, long-running show The Venture Brothers' character of Jefferson Twilight is a Blade parody who specializes in killing vampires of African descent.
Blacula is a 1972 film that Phil saw on broadcast TV as a child, but it fell out of rotation.
In the episode, Phil says you don’t see a lot of references to Popeye in pop culture. We forgot about Ludacris' legitimately terrifying video for "Get Back".
Laurence Fishburne is Phil's wife's favorite actor. When he shows up she always hopes it means everything up to that point in the movie was inside the Matrix. It's almost never true though.
The Three Little Pigs should have a back-to-basics reboot. Kids only know the deconstructed versions now. There are deconstructed, ironic takes on the story going back to the 1930s! We just want a straight-up fable about planning ahead.
