  1. "Ben is Back" reaffirms that if Peter Hedges is involved, you're probably in for a rewarding experience.

  2. Looking for something to read. Any recs for decent specs from this year?

      Well, damn, I won't pry, but hopefully this exchange means congrats!

      No congrats yet, but thanks! I have a shot, but won't know until it's release.

      You have a shot - that's all one can ask for. Here's hoping

  3. Totally go see the amazing "Eighth Grade" asap (especially if you have Moviepass, cause those days appear to be numbered). Gucci!

  4. Wasn't a big fan of Grand Budapest, but Isle of Dogs is fantastic. Moves much faster than other Anderson flicks

      Loved Isle of Dogs. Can't wait to see it again.

      Good to hear. Hope to see it this week.

  5. Blockers is fantastic! Great characters, never boring, and moves super fast. I left the theater with a big smile on my face

      Very funny. Barinholtz was especially good. Nice chemistry all around.

      He's becoming one of those guys who I smile every time I see him in a movie. And I'm starting to get really impressed with John Cena. He goes all in and his willing to try anything. After him and The Rock, I imagine there'll be a few more movie stars that come from the WWE

  6. Is there a reason both Paddington movies are released in early January stateside and miss the Oscar cut-off? These movies are amazing (I see Paddington 1 wasn't even nominated in the animation category).

      They had to get rid of Weinstein name from 2.

      Wouldn’t qualify for an animated film Oscar. Except for a very particular bear, it’s live action, no?

    4. drb000

      drb000

      Ah, ok. That is a great point about it not qualifying. I guess I'm so taken in by that amazing bear it never even crossed my mind.

  7. My script "Breaking Them Up" is currently a semifinalist over at Bluecat. It's in the Works in Progress section if anyone wants to take a look before I'm eliminated next round.

      You're right. i'm just playing the expectations game in my head/out loud

      Congrats, for what it's worth.

      Thanks! Keeping my fingers crossed. These contests are kind of like lotto tickets

  8. For my current script, I'm looking for great journalism movies/scripts to study if anyone has recommendations (looking for lesser known stuff). I started a thread in the "Looking For...'" section if anyone wants to respond. Thanks.

      Thanks. I forgot about True Crime.

  9. "Their Finest" is a really entertaining movie about filmmaking/screenwriting. At 87% on RT. Go see it!

      I hadn't heard much either up until recently. I just saw multiple good reviews, and then saw it was from Lone Scherfig ("An Education"). But I didn't even know it was about filmmaking. A really nice surprise. I love going in blind.

      Went on your recommendation. Loved it.

      Glad you enjoyed. It's weird how so under the radar this came in. I guess that's sadly just the current state of things.

  10. Anyone have any good recommendations for good unprod. heist scripts? I've read a lot of them, like "Leonardo Job", "Met Gala Heist", etc. but looking for ones I may have missed

  11. If you're on the TB Forum right now instead of seeing "The Edge of Seventeen", then you are doing life wrong. Go see it (unless you already have)!

      Yeah, I enjoyed that one.

      The characters were just so great, and there were the little details, like when Woody Harrelson asks her if she bought a donut while she waited to be picked up. It's such a tiny moment, but something like that encapsulates how well the characters were developed
