    "Some ghosts never stay buried." :lol: What does that mean?

    This looks horrendous but it's an awesome bit of trivia to resurface after all these years.

    edit: I am dumb.

    They should have named it "Harvest of Sole" and set it on a fishing trawler, showing us how Michael spends his other 364 days of the year. I would take that more seriously than that doofus in the mask somebody bought from iParty.

    I'm imagining the scenes near the beginning of Man of Steel, but with Michael instead of Clark Kent, working along side a bunch of burly fisherman.

    I often wonder why can't we get the vibe of the 80's back in films? No matter how hard we try we just can't get it right. Cool trailer by the way I really enjoyed it allot!

    Different film stock, different cameras, different method of editing, different everything. Filmmakers still by and large relied on traditional methods like the use of static shots that had been in use for decades, and whose careers easily predated the MTV video era. You can't get the vibe back because quite simply modern filmmakers don't know how. You'd think that such a thing would be easy to accomplish but apparently that isn't the case. The urge for them to "update" to suit a modern audience who expects shaky cam and super quick editing is far too hard to resist. That and they're too afraid to use old school FX techniques because if they screw them up then it sets them back several hours before they can do a second take. Ultimately, there's no going back. The best one can hope for is an homage, but it'll never feel authentic.

    House of the Devil was probably the closest I have seen.
