While editing A Russia Blood to the Kranium I noticed that a visual kept on repeating. It involves a 'big head in the background, small figure in the foreground'.
In The Avengers his big head floats above Uma Thurman...
...who lost hers in the Percy Jackson movie.
Which lead me to Sam Worthington.
This week Jim Cameron revealed that the Avatar sequel will be called The Way of Water.
Water syncs have been on my mind since learning that Ukraine's national emblem is a Trident.
Sam 'Way of the Water' Worthington wielded the Trident in Wrath of the Titans.
Dolph Lundgren also had one as King Nereus in Aquaman.
Then there's Arnold Schwarzenegger who recently played the King of Sync himself.
I left a couple of Arnie skull syncs out of the video for the sake of keeping things moving but there are one or two worth mentioning. This is from Last Action Hero where he cameos as Hamlet.
Another is from Predator where he's hunted for his skull.
I like how the hole in the head ^ syncs with the one from T2.
President Zelenskyy doing the 'gun to the head' thing.
Liam (Zeus) Neeson's new movie Memory was released last week.
Our Memory is located in the brain's temporal lobe in a region called the Hippocampus. This is where episodic memories are formed and indexed for future access.
The name hippocampus is derived from the Greek hippokampus - hippos, meaning “horse,” and kampos, meaning “sea monster”.
In The Way of Water I'm guessing we're going to see Sam Worthington doing the same.
So our Memory entrains with the Sea Horse but if you want to be specific with the Greek meaning then it's actually a Sea Horse Monster.
Zeus - Release the Kraken!!!
Release your memories!!!??
How is the Sea Monster defeated and disaster averted?
Well it all goes back to what's going on inside the head.
Ave Maria - Hail, Mary
Final thought: If you've watched The Batman (2022) then you may have noticed that Ave Maria is a key song which is repeated several times. You'll also know that the movie had a very watery ending.
Mary - "found in or pertaining to the sea," from Old French marin "of the sea, maritime," and directly from Latin marinus "of the sea," from mare "sea, the sea, seawater," from root *mori- "body of water."
I'm not sure how all this relates to the war in Ukraine but the syncs are there and they feel particularly strong. If you have any ideas then please feel free to share them in the comment section. If I have any more thoughts I'll be sure to share them here.
