  2. Script reading club has a new spec to read. Blonde Ambition!

  3. 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)!

  4. Current list of people in the reading group below. Anyone else interested?

  5. A CABIN IN THE WOODS prequels that tell the stories of how they managed to capture those monsters.

      oooh - I like that!

  6. Atlanta has the best writing on television currently. Sad we have to wait 51 weeks to see if it will win the Emmy for comedy writing.

  7. What was the last "fun" script you read?

      The 9/11 Seinfeld script is an wildly fun read and spot-on nails each character. I felt a bit icky reading it, but boy oh boy it is funny!

      I've got to say the online alternative half-the-prize-money Big Brother, Westworld, Midnight Texas, and Luke Cage.

      Yeah, everything is on lock-down. My best sources and traders have all dried up or are no longer sharing. It's a real bummer.

  10. 99 Homes is indie thriller filming at its best. Now streaming on Amazon Prime, can't believe I missed it when it came out in cinemas

      Liked the film, but the script was MUCH better, stronger...

      The first season was amazing. Talk about a master class in conflict! One thing did strike me though, this has to be the "drinky-est" show since the original Dallas. Almost every scene, folks are drinking for every reason imaginable. Makes me think, what if every drink was replaced with lighting a jay or hitting a bong? Mom, the kids, everybody... Funny, even if you're a smoker, the evil, devil weed propaganda is so entrenched in us that the thought of it makes one bristle......

  13. Okay, over 300 views on the 2015 Cakes List, and no one has antied up their own?

  14. Since TB Red cannot accept new private messages, who do I contact to get an okay for sharing a hot, possibly "hurt somebody's feelings" script?

  15. 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.

  19. Okay, I did it and I'm sorry... I should have known better. I should have used better judgement... But can I please have the hour back to my life for the time I spent reading the steaming pile of shite that is Bad Boys 3? Talk about "by the numbers"! It's like a word processor blended every dull, cliched cop-buddy script into a homogenized mush and then played Mad Libs, changing the villian's names to Albanian, etc, etc, etc... And to think Peter Craig & Davi...

      David Guggenheim's names are on this festering pile of Montezuma's revenge. My body and soul feel ill. I think I need a mental exorcism to flush this toxic, soul crushing taste from my mouth... Friends, don't do it. Don't let your faith in humanity be scrubbed raw with this toilet brush yielded by a not-cute monkey. Kill it with fire. For the love of God, kill it with fire.

  22. So thoughts about the Suicide Squad sizzle trailer that "leaked" yesterday? Honestly, I loved it! Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn *MIGHT* be an inspired casting choice that going to make her a star it seems. I can't wait to see it when it comes out next year!

  24. Remember that rush from seeing Pulp Fiction on opening night? The twists? The satisfaction? Wanna feel that way again? RUSH to see Damián Szifron's Wild Tales. Pure gratification

      So many great examples of smart screenwriting are peppered throughout.

  25. Thank you to whoever recommended Bloodline!

    1. Mr Cakes

      Mr Cakes

      Yeah, the characters do a whole lotta drinking on that show. I noticed that too. And most often as a anti-anxiety self-medication. What if you substituted getting high in every one of those drinking scenes.
