Don't encourage geists! You're just asking for trouble.I'd try to reach an arrangement with the ghost.
I'd set up some nice, breakable vases on a shelf, fasten the bedsheets tight under the mattress so it becomes a fun challenge to pull them loose, and buy really noisy door hinges and cabinet drawers, and just let them go wild on them while we went about our daily routines. In return, they get to protect the place from robbers and phone scammers.
The original... graphic novel, apparently, was called "Sandcastles" which in addition to just being a better title all around doesn't make it painfully obvious what's up from the get-go. And when you're legitimately going to spend the first what? 45 minutes or so acting like some big mystery is afoot that might be something other than hyper-aging, it kinda feels like you shouldn't spoil that with the damn title.Old - pretty stupid? It's a cool idea that is well-established in the trailer and takes everyone waaaaay too long to figure out. Also the explanation for why these people have been put in this situation does not hold up! Almost would've been better if it were an accident and there were no way out. (the way out? silly, comes out of nowhere) Sorry to be churlish... glad I watched it nonetheless. It's cool to see people react to the basic problem, when they eventually do...
If you told me Jungle Cruise was written with a screaming kindergartner nearby shouting "I'm bored!" every ten minutes, I would believe you.
Oh yes, Face the Music was genuinely Excellent.
Also watched the 1960s Dr Dolittle in two parts over the past couple of days. I watched this an obscene amount of times as a very young child, since we'd recorded it from TV on a VHS tape. As such I had strong, mostly visual memories of a few scenes, and fragments of a couple of the tunes stuck as occasional ear-worms. I'd always heard it had reviewed terribly despite a successful stage production, so was curious to see just how bad it was. In general it was fine, a bit overlong and meandering without much point to it or even much in the way of a climax. Mildly amusing, at least. There were too many songs that didn't really stand out at all, with only a couple of memorable tunes, and the main character talking his songs rather than singing was a let-down.
