Some fun junk compiled on references in GTA:IV,
other than the obvious Russian mentioning here at GTA4.TV.

No big deal, but, it can be interesting for us,
to play with, and throw around. smile.gif

Maybe you have noticed a few strange references?
(Other than previous GTA Games)


===========================================
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0802999/fullcredits#cast

I don't really know *any* of the stars listed on the IMDB GTA:IV cast list,
but I do recognize the radio talent.....

The REAL Mallory in the game is definitely Mallory Knox.
A.K.A. Juliette Lewis, DJ on Radio Broker. wub.gif

She sounds SO hot, like a big girl now. I love her voice.
She blows San Andreas DJ Sage out of the water. Sage sucked ass.
Juliette was always such a little girl, but not anymore obviously. cool.gif

Then again we knew that from her appearances in "Cape Fear",
and the epic, "Natural Born Killers" also known as the cult classic NBK.
Dre and Snoop even came out with an album, Natural Born Killaz, based
on their experiences providing music directed by NIN's Trent Reznor,
for Oliver Stone's 1994 documentary style film about a young couple,
who were serial killers in the Southwestern United States.
Dre's earlier song from "The Chronic" was featured on the soundtrack:

"The Day the Ni**as Took Over", During the prison riot sequence.


Juliette stole the show in 'Natural Born Killers' as Mallory.

There is more serial killer reference in GTA:IV than meets the eye!
Eddie Low - Definitely a freak.....
Along the lines of Jefferey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, the Green River Killer....
Geezus everyone hates that guy for a good reason.
Rockstar has really stepped down into the slime for this game.
Like many players, I even beat Eddie down after he lay dead on the street.
Killing him just isn't good enough - this was the serial killer of LC in GTA:IV.
This is a new low, in all time highs for Rockstar Games.
Spoilers on this, Eddie's last mission:

Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 runs the cult classic "Goodbye Horses",
the gothic theme from the weird Buffalo Bill tuck scene in "Silence of the Lambs"

Actually, it is a brilliant transcendental mantra for the escaping of the 6 senses,
excellently written and performed by Q Lazzarus. Here is a fan's psychedelic art video,
but relax because it is not the weird scene from the film:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22ltlLZkFlE

Regardless, it is best known for the soundtrack to a VERY disturbing scene,
in which wannabe transsexual serial killer Buffalo Bill applies make-up, and
dances to the song, talking to himself, while his hostage lie in the basement prison screaming.
"The Silence of the Lambs" won academy awards for the screenplay written by Thomas Harris.
He also wrote "Red Dragon", and "Hannibal" manuscripting the chronicles of
'Hannibal the Cannibal', a Psychologist that devoured his victims and preyed on the unobservant.

Hmmm, Mallory Knox, now a GTA:IV DJ, then there's a character named Mallorie.
What a coincidence! These guys are very sly, aren't they?

While listening to Radio Broker driving Packie through Dukes,
I heard a pedestrian say, "I'll shoot her tits off!"....
That's not much different from NBK's Special Officer Jack Scagnetti's line,
while holding Mallory Knox hostage, trying to coax Mickey Knox
(Woody Harrelson) out into the open for arrest.

"Hey Mickey! I'll cut her fucking tits off!"
Mickey: "You ain't got the balls! Go ahead Scagnetti, I'll buy her new ones."

^Scagnetti is obviously not in this shot, but it is the drug store parking lot of the shoot out.
Cut the tits off, shoot the tits off, it is pretty similar if you ask me.
Just a little similarity, that the developers threw in, being of that age 30+.....

=========================================

Is "Three Leaf Clover" inspired by the epic film 'Heat' ?

That is a classic film. It is also a very epic mission in GTA gaming history.

While our guys in GTA:IV are masked with the balaclavas, it doesn't change much.
It really seems like the HEAT film was as much of an influence in GTA:IV,
as 'Scarface' was in GTA:Vice City.
Although there are, obviously, more similarities to Scarface in GTA:VC.

==========================================

Mostly just historical music history references here....


Iggy Pop is a DJ on Liberty Rock Radio 97.8, and his old friend David Bowie has a soundtrack play.
Both these guys have been involved in art films, and soundtracks.
Iggy and the Stooges' "Now I Wanna Be Your Dog" was a punk/metal classic
years before punk and metal even emerged. It can be heard even in the beginning
of the game in the Hove beach safe house. Love that song, heard on 97.8 cool.gif
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjmLsSs0xDY


"The Man from U.N.C.L.E." star David McCallum,
and his instrumental heard on Fusion FM, "The Edge".....
1964 and VERY psychedelic, considering the time period.

==========================================


Our beloved Little Jacob is voiced by none other than reggae musician and composer Coolie Ranx!
Hey Coolie! I and I need some herb, seen?


Hopefully this has helped springboard his career as an artist.
Dr. Evil
Other movies that Juliette Lewis has been in...

Christmas Vacation
Catch & Release

I always thought that was her on Radio Broker. Just never checked out the credits. Three Leaf Clover does seem like a dead ringer for the movie Heat, one of my top 5 favorite movies btw.

Thanks alot Sych...now I'm gonna start looking for more shit when I get home...lol.

Nice connection made!
It is funny the way they are naming mission titles.

"I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle"
is reminiscent from I think it was, the 2nd Terminator movie.
Where he walks up nyked at the biker bar, asks them for the same.

This was a modification from the first Terminator film,
where he walks up to the punk rockers who say,
"What's wrong with this picture?" and then laugh at the Terminator.
Arnold says, "Your clothes, give them to me."

One of the punkers is actually a young Bill Paxton.

Wow, this is some indepth shit.

Juliette Lewis was also in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I'd love to see a GTA connection there.
