Shortly after posting an exegesis on dream interpretation, WordPress automatically tagged the post with a review of a new movie that has been out for some time now.

Have you ever had one of those vivid dreams where you were positive that it carried some strong omen but you weren’t sure what it was? Well that’s what this post is really all about. Dream interpretation is actually a lot simpler than people tend to think and I’m going to tell you how to understand them using simple science. Eventually you’ll come to see that there is absolutely nothing mystical about dreams at all. You won’t fear your nightmares after this.
