    And if it's the main character running away from it, his speed is slow-motioned to create prolonged suspense and show off his flowing hair (CON AIR).

    That's something that bothers me... multiple use of slow motion in a movie or episode.

    An example... the STRANGER THINGS season 4 finale had a scene where three different things were happening at the same time in different locations, and all of them were slow motioned. I get what they were going for, but all it did was really just DRAG that scene out unnecessarily. Instead of taking 5-10 seconds, it lasted a good 4-5 minutes. But it felt like it was a half hour.

    One thing that really bothers me is the way shows get fever wrong. When your body temperature increases, you feel like you're freezing, and when it decreases again, you start sweating. Pretty much every sci-fi show gets this one wrong.

    Yeah, I think that depends on the person. My wife, for example, doesn't take much for her to feel a fever and feel like she is warm. But, her thermostat is all kinds of weird.

    I've definitely had the shakes with a fever but I didn't feel like I was "freezing" in that sense; I just felt like I couldn't stop moving.

    They were using that trope as a joke.

    I had a good one... Brainfart. Maybe another drink will jar it loose...

    It's a pretty self-aware movie about its own ridiculousness, but if they used it as such, it'd be at the barrel-bottom under the other 372 outstanding ones. It couldn't touch bunny-box, ''Whole World'', the flying car or ''itty bitty baby.''
