->"I think this video is ultimately, in its own way, a tribute to [[TheEighties 1980s]] action films. There was this really cool era of films that came out after 1979, you know, after [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]] had come out with ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' and ''[[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind Close Encounters]]''. This is the story of the people who were [[FollowTheLeader trying to be]] Creator/GeorgeLucas and Creator/StevenSpielberg with a tenth of the budget, and came up with the craziest, weirdest ScienceFiction films. They were American movies like westerns and science fiction, but usually funded by some European arms dealer, and [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs directed by a crazy, completely coked-out director.]]"
