I'm not usually one for ghost stories because ghosts make me very sad but this one is pretty amazing. About 3000 workers were rioting after a ghost allegedly attacked a woman in a bathroom and she fell ill afterward. Apparently this isn't an unusual occurance. Did make me briefly think of Moaning Myrtle.
Believe it or not I have only seen one of the Potter movies...and that was a long time ago. I must need to come out from under my rock more often...
Your not alone Sky. I have never seen a full Harry Potter film, or all the Hobbit films, or any of the 'Twilight' films either! Admire their work and success. I know these are pop culturally significant, but I am so put off my their usual polish, the usual over expansive John Williams music, and over saturated too abundant special digital effects.
I feel the same about Steve Spielberg's body of work with a few exceptions too now, they look too fat in budget. Wonder kid to ....?? Too big in budgets with their usual look, sound, music, over the top pacing, and ....so on. Loved his Jaws, Close encounters, Duel, and Schindler's List, Indiana Jones 1, 3, & 4 are my favorites. I hated his "War of the Worlds' and never have come back. Offended he can on a whim with all his money just remake and remodel his child hood (and ours - spoiling) favorite old movies. He kills them with sweet sentimentality...and too damn much money! I fall asleep through them and put back on old classics. lol.
400 completed UFO cases , 'abductions' to 'lights in the sky'........was fun. That would make any 'Halloween' childish and anti-climatic.
“We are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
From ‘Ulysses’ by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
