These chances are almost 100% (no wonder you got 'syncronicities' with "about 28 out of 30 films" ). There is no need to invent any irrational 'syncronicities'.
It is easy to see.
Let's say in move X there were 10000 words, 10 different actors, 10 places, 10 names, 5 pets, 3 car models, ....., 3 gestures, 2 books, ..., 2 cocktails, ..., 2 items of cloths, ...., 2 font types in titles, ..., 1 handkerchief, ... - you see this list can be endless - but let's say there were 10000 unique identifiable objects.
It is almost guaranteed that you will see any 1 of these 10000 objects in any other movie/tv-program if you switch the channel and watch it for some time!
Is it clear, or should I generalize and prove this using probability theory and taking into account the number of words in a vocabulary, typical movie script and typical tv-program?
The trick with 'syncronicities' is that you do not count probabilities correctly and what you think has very low probability in fact has very high probability, if you take into account an enormous number of all possible things/events which can take part in 'syncronicity'.
Ah, so synchronicities threaten you in some way.
