See You Next Wednesday, Right Here In The Trunk
Apparently Tarantino likes the Inside-The-Trunk point of view shot quite a bit. The Blogger software is being a bit obstinate and I'm feeling a bit dense as I can't get the pic to display in full size. Click it to enlargify.
John Landis has directed any number of 70s and 80s movie classics (Kentucky Fried Movie, Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf In London to name but a few). Landis has several recurring motifs he includes in many, though not all, of his movies. In-the-know moviegoers look for these little Easter Eggs that more often than not appear in his films.
See You Next Wednesday
Landis' most well-known running gag is a reference to See You Next Wednesday, which is usually in the form of a fictional film mentioned within the actual movie. The See You Next Wednesday blog lists at least 14 John Landis films that reference it.
A surprising number of other recurring motifs make it into his films, including references to King Kong, Oldsmobiles, cameos of other directors and others as well. A more complete listing here.
