  1. I still hope, that one day, THE MACCABEES by Eszterhas will find its way online.

  2. THE CHICKENING:

      How's your soul, though?

      oooh I need to get this! :)

      i don't have that one. or any for that matter, but i watched the trailer and i think it's amazing how different trailers have become. like back then they couldn't have camera movement.

  4. I know everyone is talking about the lists at the moment, but Ash vs The Evil Dead get so many things wrong. A few things right, but so, so much wrong.

      Oh man, I have to say, personally I love the new show! Reminiscent of the films, but inviting enough for newcomers!

    3. RobertCornero

      Don't get me wrong; I'm glad we have the show. But Ash was never really this grubby womanizer with all the skills that we now see. He was just a regular, red-blooded guy, who was totally in over his head. More a bloody Buster Keaton.

       

      There was even a tragic element to his character that this series doesn't capitalize on.

       

      Ash in this series is more "Old Spice Bruce Campbell" than truly Ash.

       

      And the two main supporting characters are OBNOXIO...

    4. RobertCornero

      ...S and GRATING.

       

      Seriously, their scenes are consistently the worst. Boring. Hamfisted. Obvious. Predictable. The best thing the series could do is just kill their characters off, and use it as emotional fodder for series 2.

       

      The fights with the Deadites are consistently great, though, and that keeps me coming back. The design of some of the actual demons is fantastic.

  5. So... I've been working on a side business for the past two months with my sister. We finally launched today: KismetRepublic.com

      Site is currently down, in case anyone is visiting. Working out a technical issue at the moment.

      very distinctive.

      Site's back up. Technical issues resolved. Theme broke when a core update was downloaded. Needed some time to fix it.

  6. If I'm completely honest, I feel like I've lost my ability to write. I haven't been able to flow at the level I used to be able to in a very long time.

      Have you ever seen, The Last Dragon, those fortunes aren't of the ancient wisdom kind.

      Try writing something other than a screenplay - I was in your position not long ago and tried writing a play - once finished, it helped both with confidence and creativity.

      I'm in the EXACT same position. Kinda frightening actually.

      i'm curious. when the first star wars came out, did people know there'd be two more. i think that has something to do with marketing as well. for me, i'm not gonna set lofty expectations. that always turns into a real dog turd.

    3. Jaco

      Jaco

      Pretty sure the general public had no idea.

    4. RobertCornero

      Adlocke - I don't think they did. The original movie was a real mess, and saved in the editing room. There is a whole subplot excised from the film, with Biggs Darklighter, which you can hear in the original audio drama (and it's terrible). I don't think Lucas even knew there would be more. Thus we end up with the whole Luke-Leia incest-kiss. They were never originally intended to be brother and sister.

  10. In case anyone missed it:

      You mean in case someone is in a medically induced coma and missed it?

      No, Disney postponed comas last night until half time was over.

  11. Here's a quick read, if you're interested: Frank Oz - Little Shop of Horrors Original Ending - http://robertcornero.com/?p=194

      Agree with you. On the stage you could get away with ironic distance, on film the emotion between those characters was too strong. Having said that, I think the ending as it stands is fine. I love that movie.

  12. I'm trying my hand at blogging about screenwriting and filmmaking. Here's my first real post: http://robertcornero.com/2015/10/07/the-narrative-missteps-of-the-martian/

      ^It's hard to read. That font on that background made it a chore. I didn't agree with every point you made but it was still a very good article and I'd like to read more. The transition at the end to The Revenant was particularly nice.

      Thanks for the color feedback. I have a suspicion that my monitor color is off, and without a color calibrator, I had to use my best judgement. I will make the text darker, and see what I can do about the links on the left.

       

      Thanks for reading, all.

    4. RobertCornero

      RobertCornero

      I changed the body text color, and the size and color of the navbar links. I can't do much about the image size, at least for this particular post, but I'll try to keep that in mind for future posts. Thanks for the suggestions, all. Hopefully they make it easier to read.

  13. I have at least 10 different screenplays I could start right now. Not sure what to tackle next.

    1. Scott Crawford

      Scott Crawford

      Screenplays to read or screenplays to write?

    2. adlocke

      adlocke

      writing is weird. it takes years to get good and not get any better at the same time. that's not like tennis or anything. pppick one and go on to the writing of it.

    3. RobertCornero

      RobertCornero

      Scott - To write.

       

      Adlocke - Yup. Think I know what I'm gonna work on next. Though I might turn an older one into an ebook first.

  14. Chat this Friday, anyone?

    1. npquinn

      npquinn

      Yes, what time?

    2. RobertCornero

      RobertCornero

      3PM PST is when I'll be around.

    3. RobertCornero

      RobertCornero

      Hmm. I can't seem to connect to the chat room. I keep getting an error message.

  15. Russian hackers keep trying to break into my personal site. 4 attempts this evening. Glad I took the time to harden in the install and use strong passwords.

      Love the concept art in the lookbook. That Wendigo creature is cool. Good luck :)

      Adlocke - Most people running their own Wordpress install aren't good at security, and are easy targets. Plugins help on this front, though. All-In-One-WP Security is a godsend. And apparently the Jetpack plugin also blocked *161* malicious login attempts!

       

      Npquinn - Thanks!!

    4. RobertCornero

      RobertCornero

      I took *a lot* of extra, almost unnecessary measures to increase the security tonight, on top of the already hardened/secure install.

       

      But yeah, if they broke in, they'd have access to a few blog posts, and a few unpublished Portfolio items, lol.
