  1. Little rant -- apropos of nothing... but what's the deal with websites that just offer 'Movie Transcripts'

      That drives me nuts. Also when you google a script and then it takes you to a website that has like 10 links that claim to have the script and none of them work. Scripts-onscreen is the worst offender

      Honestly, I find them useful at times. Like if I have a scanned PDF that I can't control+F on and want to study a particular scene real quick but can't remember it's placement in the script, sometimes I'll use Springfield scripts to help point me in the right direction. It can also be useful to compare to the actual script sometimes and you see how much dialogue ends up being cut from the finished product. But for sure, I get your point. A lot of weird stuff on the interwebs

      Very nice! Is it something you've tried adapting for screen? It's worked for a lot of other people.

      Did they change it? Typically I think it's always been the 2nd Friday of December

      Thanks. I read Jihotties and was impressed cause it was so ballsy. I saw Hereditary but didn't love it (mainly cause of the 2nd half), although it had one of the most horrifying scenes of any movie this year.

  9. Hey Hive Mind. I'm doing some research and I'm looking for your favorite movies where two or more lovable lugs go on the run from the mob, the government, other baddies after they either a) unknowingly fuck something up B) get embroiled in a plot unwittingly or c) steal from said bad guys or government... What are some of your favorite "on the run" movies? Thanks--MP

      drb000

      I'm actually a pretty big fan of 2 Guns. Also: Central Intelligence. 48 Hours is another good buddy comedy. The Nice Guys. Not all of these are entirely on the run, I suppose, though

  10. What are some of the biggest changes you've seen from script to screen?

    1. drb000

      drb000

      I think if you check out the first draft of "Bridesmaids" to what it ended up - it's a huge difference. I think I read somewhere they wrote the first draft in a couple of days cause Judd wanted to meet with them (I also could be way off here on that)

      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

      That's a bummer. Does this mean I should maybe download a bunch of scripts now before the forum disappears on us?

  15. 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).

      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.

  16. I don't disagree with the Plummer/Spacey switcheroo, but goddamn! Sony is cold as ice! LOL, who even thought this sorta thing was possible so close to release??

      I think of one crazy one was when after the Aurora shooting at Batman, Gangster Squad had a set piece with a theater shooting, so they re-shot that. But I dunno if the film was complete. And this being 6 weeks before release, and with an awards contender - this is pretty crazy and probably unprecedented. How insane would it be if Plummer got an Oscar nom? I also wonder if Sony is gonna file an insurance claim for some of this

      It's not a mob mentality. Sony made a financial decision. They weren't going to release the film with Spacey in it, so rather than bury it, they're replacing him. It makes financial sense, and it's the right thing to do. It's a win win.

  21. 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.

  23. Can you recommend any scripts where a guy is alienated from his daughter/wife/ex-wife/family/co-workers and somehow connects or reconnects with them through the course of the story?

    1. drb000

      drb000

      here are some movies not scripts but you can prolly find the scripts: Warrior, One True Thing, Trouble with the Curve, The Descendants, Big Fish

  24. 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.
