    I went to see Spy Kids 2, by our town's homeboy director, Robert Rodriguez. Aside from just being a great movie, it also had several Lucas references. At one point the Spy Kids have to swim in the ocean, and they use "rebreathers" very much like the ones Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan used in Phantom Menace. My favorite part, though, was when the kids enter a treasure chamber, and Carmen picks up the gold idol from the opening sequence of Raiders of the Lost Ark! Also in the "Thank Yous" at the movie's end, George Lucas' name is at the top of the list.
