Remember when that Nazi’s face melted off at the end of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark? It turns out that The Force Awakens uses that exact same sound in its infamous Nazi face-melting scene! Oh, that wasn’t The Force Awakens? Then what the hell was I watching? According to their interview with The Nerdist, TFW supervising sound editor Matthew Wood and sound designer David Acord did sneak a little Indy into one of Han Solo’s scenes. If the tentacled rathtar chasing our heroes through the Millennium Falcon sounded like it was rolling, your ears must be like dog’s ears or something. “I put in the sound of Ben Burtt’s boulder-roll sound from Raiders of the Lost Ark when the boulder is chasing Indy,” reveals Acord. You can listen to the entire interview here. Meanwhile, I have to go back to that Blockbuster and figure out what I rented. Oh, Blockbusters don’t exist anymore? Then what the hell was that place? Who was that guy?
