  1. Paranormal Activity is number one?…. Fuck that, give it to Night of the
    Living Dead or something. The fact that NotLD is so low and Paranormal
    Activity is above all the others is pretty ridiculous.

  2. “”Mad Max” inspired several sequels including “Fury Road””…so that means
    George Miller inspired himself, because he made both of the movies.
