I was reading "Gordie Culligan vs. Dr. Longbeach & the HVAC of Doom" (seriously) by J. Steven York. It's a short story published in the collection If I Were an Evil Overlord. It is currently playing this trope straight and lampshading the hell out of it.

The main character is currently recalling that his union buddies (HVAC men, not heroes) have mentioned that the guys who build lairs specifically request the large, easy-to-see through registrars (those big vents) and that the ducts be big enough to move through, while mentioning the lighting's quite good and the metal nice and sturdy.

The description needs tightening up, but it would make a hilarious entry.

The Brothers Bloom had two widely separated entries. I moved them together, but there's another problem.

I think both entries are describing the same scene, one entry in much more detail, but I'm not sure. Google isn't helping much to settle things.

Could someone who's seen the movie help out please?

  • Beefy science teacher Ian Chesterton uses one in "The Aztecs" while the First Doctor makes time with a local lady.

Not sure if I remember the exact term used, but this was an Aztec temple in the 15th century. Is it really the equivalent of ventilation?
