Don't worry, the Internet has just been going through a very loud adolescent phase where anyone with an opinion online in any even slightly public way is likely to get a torrent of Twitter poo poo for their opinion, scaling up exponentially by the percentage of vagina you have. All we need to do is wait until the studios stop making superhero movies and putting women in films and we should be fine.

lmao mister loving bibs are you seriously claiming phineas gage was perfectly fine after the whole rod-through-the-brain thing?

Um, no? I was just adding something I recall reading about the dude. I want to say it was an article debunking the "he was entirely a different person" urban legend, and they went into detail on how if he wasn't at least vaguely functional, there was no way he'd be able to be a stagecoach driver for a notoriously dangerous route.

There were also scientists and doctors who had their own pet theories. His attending physician was a phrenologist and he had believed that the rod destroyed Gage's organs of Benevolence and Veneration and he basically got into a Twitter battle except with medical journals with Harvard's Professor of Surgery Henry Jacob Bigelow, who investigated Gage and said that he had fully recovered both mentally and physically.

Lady In The Water huh? This should be fun.

There's maybe something to the whole "realizing you're in a fairy tale and having to fulfill certain roles" thing but Shyamalan is no Guillermo Del Toro. Looking forward to the strawman critic getting eaten by a giant wolf.

I would love for them to cover The Man Who Heard Voices: Or, How M. Night Shyamalan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale as part of the episode because it's one of the more baffling pieces of self-congratulatory bridge burning out there.

It's the premise of a few good RPGs like Mage, Changeling, and parts of Unknown Armies. And part of Clive Barker's Weaveworld. Plus life is just more interesting if you act/see everything you do with an overly of a mythic/mystic destiny/archtype.

Movie is probably poo poo but, like the Flop House ep on Mirrors, it'll bug me if they mock the premise too much.

Same, although Shyamalan's problem is that he makes up a lot of fake names for fantasy things that sound silly.

i know nothing about lady in the water but from everything i understand this is M.Nights first movie where you didn't have people defending it, you had it for the village and signs and this movie killed his last few die hard fans.

then the happening happend. which is a film IMO that got overplayed and after earth is more of less a vanity project for will smith and his son.

The Happening also has an awesome premise that shows up in a horror novel that Stephen King mentions in Danse Macabre, at least one j-horror movie, and part of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Pity it's wasted on what's apparently a bad movie!

Which J-horror? And eco-horror was its own subgenre of Italian gory films in the latish seventies to mid eighties. One I remember in particular I think was just called The Swamp or something really generic like that, it had the trees and animals of, well, the swamp kill off the extended family of a rich businessman who was polluting the bayou.

have the guys said if there will be a on-screen of ghostbusters 2016? i love to hear what they think of the movie since A) they think a idea of a ghostbuster 3 or reboot is a wraste of time and B) a review from fat nerds who won't judge it because of vaginas.

Part of me hopes so, because it will inevitably result in a Kenny G level letter regardless whether they like the movie or not.

Most of me hopes not, though, because I'm loving sick of everything adjacent to that movie and I'm not even sure it's out here yet.
