    All right, here's the Q part of the thread.

    Should one watch Dr. Giggles or Paradox (2017) first?

    Yes, this officially a first-world problem, but it is indeed a question of most importance.

    ETA that's good about the Wizard of Oz! How about a little fire, scarecrow! Poppies will make them sleep! Even if one doesn't like the movie, it's still such a profound influence on norteamericano culture.

    Plus, it's not even a joke: the Pink Floyd thing totally works.

    I wouldn't do it to anybody who wasn't already a little bit 'experienced,' but it is kind of a little trip in itself, just for fun.

    The Pink Floyd thing kinda sorta works, but there are far more ways the movie and the album don't synch up than they do. You might find points of commonality with Birth of a Nation and Star Wars if you watched them as you played the album, too. For more:

    Clearly you didn't start the 180g vinyl pressing at 0.05 s after the the third lion roar of the MGM logo.

    Yeah, people mess it up and they just don't get it, man.

    It's very precise.

    No.

    Under no circumstances watch the "movie" called Dr. Giggles.

    Just, trust me. Don't even try.

    I don't which precise formulation of drugs one has to take to find it amusing. Giggle soup, strong acid, bad weed, uppers, downers, I don't know what, but it would have to be a lot of them, all at once, to find this "movie" amusing.

    That is one bad movie.

    Don't do it.

    And don't let your kids do it.

    And don't even think about it.

    That should be erased from planetary memory.

    So, it's a pretty bad movie, is what the point is.

    Just don't.

    Don't even look at it.

    Also, don't bother with Paradox (2017) with fight choreography by the great Sammo Hung.

    It's like the others in that series: vast, tedious stretches of sentimental melodrama punctuated by some good fights.

    It's like a soap opera except instead of having somebody's twin brother with an eyepatch screwing his brother's wife, it's just...well, it's like that. With fighting.
