I just wanna make sure I told my kid the right thing. We’re sitting here watching the Alec Baldwin version of The Shadow (1994?) and Tim Curry has Alec trapped in the water tower, and he shoots off a gun a few times, and manages to slide out and lock Alec in, but not before turning on the water. So the water tower is filling up with water and Alec is trapped inside. And the water is rising steadily and then it’s all the way up to the top and there’s no air left, so Alec goes over to where the two or three bullet holes are, in the side of the water tower, and here’s the thing–there’s air bubbling INTO the water tower, instead of water squirting OUT. So he puts his mouth on the air bubbles and gets enough air to survive the next 20 seconds or so of screen time until Penelope Ann Miller gets there and lets him out.
So I look over at Bonzo and I go, “Huh?” And he says, “What?” And I say, “Well, the air shouldn’t be bubbling IN, the water should be squirting OUT.” He says, “Oh.”
So I wanna make sure I told him the right thing. If you were inside the water tower, you wouldn’t see air bubbling in, right? It’s been bugging me all afternoon.
