The Sixth Sense was a very weird sequel to The Fifth Element. And The Seventh Seal just muddied things further.

in britain probably everybody older than 55 has something called a Toast Turntable which their mother bought in 1975 and it still works completely fine. and the checkouts at the supermarket you can buy a little pot of Toast Turntable Oil, or at least you used to be able to, before it was revealed that Turners' Turning Oil was getting the 15 year olds that hang out round the back of the old hippodrome extremely high
