  1. The numbers for the Transformers and Pirates movies disagree with canon (they’re both #5/V), but they’re consistent; not should whether I should appertain myself a drink (after rehearsal) or slap myself for missing the joke. There is a proof somewhere that 17 (XVII) is the largest finite number, but I wouldn’t bet the Razzies are familiar with the pejorative calculus. Or maybe they’re thinking of The Phantom Tollbooth:

    “Seventeen!” shouted the Bug, who was usually the first with the wrong answer.

  2. In the background of the latest The Good Place was a poster for “Pirates of the Caribbean 6: The Haunted Crow’s Nest Or Something, Who Gives a Crap”.
