Playing Fatal Frame at the minute and all I can think of as the story progresses is that scene from one of Neil Breens movies. "I can't believe you committed suicide! How could you do it? I cant belive you committed suicide"

I think that's the most famous 'how didn't they get sued?' one. There's also the one with Picard and the romulan and I think the other series have at least one like it in them. I reckon there's probably half a dozen to choose from.
Have to agree with Mike and Jay in the latest vid, Midnight Mass was one of the best series this year. Glad they called out all the monologue complaints. It's like complaining of a Tatentino movie having too much dialogue.
Haven't heard many complaints, mostly down to not hearing much about it at all. It's a shame. I've been shouting about it to everyone who enjoyed the Hill House stuff (which was apparently everyone), but no one seems to care.
Jay mentioned there were no spooky ghosts in the background of Midnight Mass. I need to rewatch it but I'm sure I saw 2 or 3 attempts at coat hangers in the dead space. The beach scene definitely had a few hangonaminutes. Unless I'm just looking for it, which is probably even more spooky?

There was literally a spooky ghost in the first scene (and subsequent appearances). I did really like it although, yes, I did feel some of the monologues dragged. The 'meaning of life and death' one was ridiculous, even though it was probably the one that had the most impact on the story and payoff. And the king comparisons are inevitable. It is basically Salems Lot: The Revenge.
But, as they say, I would rather netflix chuck money at stuff like this than trying to get millarworld going.
I might try and have a watch of the other 'Haunting of..' show. I really liked Hill House (after a slow start) but I bounced off the second one really hard (although I think that was due to it having the same cast with bad accents which was really distracting)
I mostly watch Red Letter Media for the amusing way they call out laziness or questionable tropes from the industry.
The way they 'exposed' Adam Sandler for making huge budgets disappear was great.
Also enjoy their rewatches of classics and highlighting things I just took for granted the first time around. Probably my favourite examples are the clumsy 'not gay' scenes that are crowbarred in nice and early to put fragile audience minds at rest if the plot demands that the hero has a close male friend.

vicedestroyer: I guess, once the world does its best Waterworld impression, it will be survival of the fittest. Either the boy swims fast or becomes shark tucker.

zagibu: Sharks not only swim fast, they also swim silent. Their scales are called dermal denticles, and they create local swirls around them which reduce the shark's overall drag in water.

zagibu: So even if a boy could swim as fast as a shark, he wouldn't hear them coming.
