International Ghost Investigators: Hollywood Division - Netflix
"International Ghost Investigators: Hollywood Division" is a parody about paranormal investigators that airs on the Audience network. The show stars David Anthony Higgins (who you might remember from Malcolm in the Middle) and Paul Greenberg, and in the episode I watched, they help Laraine Newman and Dave Foley with some supernatural problems. David is excited to assist Laraine Newman because he's a fan of her work, and Paul is excited because he thinks she wrote the song "Short People." When Laraine meets David and Paul at her studio, she assumes that David is a "D and D shut-in" and that Paul is a "simpleton" and wonders why they look nothing like the pictures on their website. David explains that Paul's mother has dial-up, and they "don't know how to upload pictures." Laraine tells the guys that she doesn't believe in the paranormal, but some really scary things have been happening there. Laraine says that one time she was eating a sandwich when the closet door opened and closed by itself...and when she went back to her sandwich, the meat had turned from turkey into ham! Another time she saw a ball bounce down the stairs and heard the laughter of a child, who then said, "I'm gonna kill you." David suggests that they do a smudging ceremony, which involves a shaman burning sage and is "mostly bullshit," according to Paul. Paul leaves to get the shaman, but it turns out Randy is out of town, so he brings a new "Randy," who smells like pee. David and Paul conduct an EVP session, then find Randy dead in the bathroom with a needle in his arm, so they wrap him up in a rug and tell Lorraine the rug is cursed as they're leaving with the body.

International Ghost Investigators: Hollywood Division - Ghost in the Shell (2017 film) - Netflix
Ghost in the Shell is a 2017 American science fiction action film directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jamie Moss, William Wheeler, and Ehren Kruger, based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche. Set in a near future when the line between humans and robots is blurring, the plot follows the Major (Johansson), a cyborg supersoldier who investigates her past. Ghost in the Shell premiered in Tokyo on March 16, 2017, and was released in the United States on March 31, 2017, in 2D, 3D, IMAX 3D and 4DX. It received mixed reviews, with praise for its visual style, action sequences, cinematography and score, but criticism for its story and lack of character development. The casting of Caucasian actors, particularly Johansson, drew accusations of racism and whitewashing. It grossed $169 million worldwide against a production budget of $110 million, and is considered a box office bomb.
