    As a bald/balding man who smokes a pipe on occasion and is severely disgusted by feet, this episode really spoke to me.

    That reminds me: When Dylan decides to start writing everything down, the first thing he grabs is a roll of paper (wax paper? shelving paper?) from what looks like a kitchen drawer. Among the items in the drawer is a random piece of oddly folded aluminum foil ... ... and is that a hat? Is that a tinfoil hat? Is there any other plausible explanation for pre-worn, previously-crinkled tinfoil kept in a drawer like that? And if he's the kind of person who is prone to tinfoil-wearing to keep the satellites from reading his thoughts or whatever, then is this movie telling us upfront that Dylan's about to go totally off the deep end? That would call into question his entire reliability as a narrator and, I daresay, tosses the ending of this movie into Jacob's Ladder territory.

    At the very end of the movie, which takes place 10 months to a year later, Dylan checks his watch and says out loud, ’11 o’clock…no plane”. So we can assume that every single day for the past year he checks for the occurrence of each premonition from the Grand Central Station incident. I’d love to see a bunch of shots of Sarah showering or trying to get some work done, etc and Dylan popping in to say “Hey Honey, 9:15 and no drip!”, or Dylan: “Hear that, Sarah’. Sarah: ”What, I don’t hear anything” Dylan: “Exactly! No tires screeching!” Sarah: [Rolls her eyes and shakes her head] In the end, it seems that the whole first part of the movie *is* about a man suffering from mental illness and the last scene shows how Dylan is now coping with his issues using medication and some kind of affirmation therapy…’11:00…no plane”

    Don't forget that although Dylan's body is 30 years old, his soul is at least sixty. Which makes sense because signing your name to your texts is a total boomer thing to do.

    When your boyfriend tells you he is the man that killed you 30 years ago and will again it’s best to get away as fast as possible

    The episode does a great job of pointing out the large flaws of this movie, but there were several small things throughout the movie that really irked me. 1. I found the throwing away of the trays with the flight info to be incredibly wasteful. Why not throw out the paper with the flight info and just reuse the tray? 2. I was bothered by Teresa Palmer putting her ice cream cone inside the cup with Dylan's phone that was being used as the speaker. There is no way his phone or that speaker are not a complete sticky mess with melted ice cream. 3. Dylan ended every text message with "D." You are not sending letters or even email, you do not need to indicate who you are in every text message. What an unnecessary waste of time. 4. If Jonas does not intend to kill Teresa Palmer, then why does he bring a gun with him when they try to go away together for the weekend?

    Did anyone else notice when Dylan first walks up to Sarah in the bar, she asks if he wants to get out of here. He says yes. Cut scene to a bar. But weren't they just at a bar? If I say i want to get out of here it is because i need a change of scenery but they simply switched bars. Maybe the first place was a restaurant but it definitely had a full bar and therefore i was confounded on their choice. I was expecting them to go to a park or someones apartment, not another bar. Second did anyone else notice that the police did not give a f*** about Dylan when he was dying on the floor of Grand Central Station. Only two cops were shown hovering over Jonas but they were no longer securing the scene, they instead appeared to be talking oblivious to the dying person. Does this mean the final scene of Dylan as a pilot never happened because Dylan bleed out ( not from a gun shot wound but) from the apathy of first responders.

    Let’s talk astronomy. If a Star only 30 light years away goes supernova we’re all dead.

    Also to my knowledge, the plane is considered to be in the jurisdiction of the country its registered to, until it hits the landing strip of the country its going to. This money plane has to be registered to some country right?

    Very happy with the sauna burrito discussion. I didn’t watch this film and I am going to say it is due to scientific accuracy. Because of “Jurassic Park”s raptors (which were actually based on another species; I think they just liked the name better) people tend to think that raptors were a lot bigger than they actually were. A velociraptor was actually about one foot tall. They are very closely related to birds. I mean, all dinosaurs are. But the “raptor” name is pretty telling that it’s related to birds of prey. And historical velociraptors DEFINITELY had feathers, as many dinosaur species did. When they make a sequel where the pastor turns into a feathered dinosaur about the size of a vulture that can’t fly, THEN I will watch. Otherwise I find it too unrealistic.

    Yea, but a velocipastor is much bigger. This isn't about velociraptors.

    I was very disappointed their birthday was some random day in April instead of February 22nd.

    Number 100, sweet! So I thought long and hard about my next pick and eventually picked something that is a little deeper compared to others. So we are going with: Light of Day (1987) by Paul Schrader and starring Michael J. Fox, Joan Jett and Gena Rowlands. You can easily watch it for free on YouTube.

    Let's talk astronomy and what this movie got right, wrong and very wrong. First the right. Hamal is indeed a star that is part of the Aries constellation and yes technically during that period of April the Aries constellation would be visible from New York from roughly 7 AM to 8 PM. Now the wrong. They start off by saying that the star Hamal is going supernova but it is nowhere near going supernova. This is a very rare occurrence. The next major star to go supernova would be Betelgeuse and that's estimated to be in within 100,000 years which in astronomy is fairly soon. In fact we know when a star will go supernova because it's light gets dimmer and dimmer which happens over centuries and as far as we know this has not been happening to Hamal at all as it is still one of the 50 brightest stars. Finally, what they got very wrong and by very wrong I mean none of the writers thought to use google level wrong. Throughout the film we are shown the constellation of "Aries" and it is depicted as three stars making a triangular shape. This fits it with the three people that died in 1986 being reincarnated and repeating 30 years later part of the story. This is very thematic but unfortunately... that's not the constellation Aries. Aries has three prominent stars but there is also a forth star that is part of it. The bigger problem is that these three prominent stars don't make a triangular shape at all but more of a line with a hooked end shape. So why the confusion? Right by Aries is another constellation called Triangulum which as you can guess by the name is three stars that do very much make a triangle. In fact when we see the mural in Grand Central Station you can see Triangulum above Aries's head. It is this constellation that we see throughout the movie when we cut to the constellation in the sky and the triangular shaped imagery. The real Aries at Grand Central Station only has two of it's four stars prominently highlighted. This movie arbitrarily throws one more highlighted star but puts it in the wrong spot and wrong direction so it can in fact make a triangle.

    I find it highly unlikely that an aviophobic air traffic controller (and expectant father), who was once under review for nearly causing a deadly collision, would have the means and the time to accrue the prerequisite hours of flight time required to become a commercial pilot in just under a year. According to Dr Google, he would have to put in AT LEAST 1500 hours just to be considered (which works out to just under 38 weeks) -- and that's assuming he can afford to rent and fuel a plane for 8 hours a day, five days a week. This isn’t even take into account for training time lost due to convalesce after a grievous gun shot wound to the kidney. I mean, there's a reason why people don't just decide to become a pilot on whim.

    Omission: As Jason points out, Dylan works out on gymnastics rings as if he’s training for the olympics. I think we can assume they didn’t come standard with the $20k apartment, which means he hung them himself. He uses them every day, and seems to have a pretty strenuous routine. This can’t possibly be the first time a strap has broken - evidenced further by his comfortability in the repair process. So are we to believe that in all those times of climbing the rafters he never noticed the Jake Redmond satchel? Furthermore - why would Jake Redmond have had this hidden? It was his apartment - where he lived alone. I can imagine his lady friend having HER letters hidden, but this makes no sense.

    So the three people who died in 1987 were reincarnated because their souls left their bodies when they were killed in entered the bodies of babies born that same day. Ergo, this movie is positing that babies don't have souls until they are born. Fetuses must not have souls. Which makes this the most pro-choice movie ever. Interesting how a movie that's all about fate is REALLY all about the right to choose.

    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FREE CRIME IN INTERNATIONAL AIRSPACE! In researching "international air" and "committing crimes," you find that the same laws apply to international waters. One article, again more specific to crimes committed in International Waters, notes that "the simple fact is, no one lives in international waters forever. Once you reach the port, you may have to show responsibility for the crimes that you’ve committed. That is, if no one catches you before. So no, international waters are not technically no one’s land where you can do whatever you want." And as Jason brought up... what crimes were actually being committed on the plane? I mean the only illegal activity outside of gambling without a license, is The Concierge shooting a guy for cheating. Yes, we see people betting on how long someone will survive a snake bite or a pool of piranhas, but the act of those specific events are happening on the ground where laws will surely punish those perpetrating it! Also Paul, based on your past experience... what were your feelings on the acting of the guy being devoured by Piranhas?

    Putting aside Joey’s fake hairline, the fact that Paul, June and Jason didn’t recognize Thomas Jane or that Kelsey Grammer clearly says his nickname is The Rumble (what the hell is a Grumble team!)… the most upsetting issue is why the bookkeeper wore an earring so high up when he in fact has an available hole in the “normal” spot. It was soooo distracting!

    Meet the Raptors Btw, I love that there are still people who think that feathers make dinosaurs less scary. As if a species of 6 ft tall seagulls wouldn't make us extinct in a matter of weeks.

    Also I got super distracted about trying to read the one club basement's walls Now if you looks close at about 1 o'clock coming out of Jett's head, it says "THE GLOVE". I couldn't get a full picture of that part, but someone had written "SMELL THE GLOVE" there. Which if you don't know is Michael McKean's other band's album:

    The weirdest thing about this is that I thought "Michael Mckean is absolutely not convincing as a bassist in a rock band" but Spinal Tap had already come out.

    I think for this movie they shot 2 minutes and 22 seconds of stock footage and just keep reusing it all as montages, slow-mo moments, flashbacks, and patterns.

    Ahahaha! All the ninja turtles gifs! You know me well! I hope you all have been well during this time. I had a bit of a rough week last week, so hopefully this week will be better and perfect for watching a musical. After doing extensive research by asking my roommate for ideas I have decided to go with a classic!
