  1. FINALLY. A NEW COLUMN ON WORDPLAYER: http://www.wordplayer.com/columns/wp55.Time.Risk.html

      I've just recently gone back and started re-reading the columns, then I realized I missed a BUNCH of em. Like 10+. I have to catch up lol.

  2. Blacklist read recommendations? Usually it's pretty easy for me to find scripts on the list that impress but this time, after quite a few false starts, I've been struggling to find anything I want to read (or, if I did read, glad that I did).

      I'm pretty late to the party, but I second the recommendation of GREAT FALLS. I too have been struggling with the list but that's my favorite so far. Should have finished higher.

  3. Informal Script Format Poll: Bold scene headings or not bold scene headings?

      I started Bolding a while back after reading scripts with it. I quite like it. Seems to make the read easier.

  4. hateful 8 is kind of a piece of crap. i can't imagine a lot of "story" in 3 hours in a store.

      Glad your taste is so refined. Hope you enjoy whatever films meet your standards this holiday season!

      Also I'll add that the actual filming and performances make the movie just as much as his scripts do. And his scripts are kinda hard to get through sometimes. A lot of description, pretty long, some camera directions. Not really the best way to digest Tarantino.

      How do you know he hasn't gone through and did a re-write/clean-up if you haven't seen the movie?

  7. 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.

      With Fargo finished and Flash on hiatus, I put Ash on my watch list for this week. Not worth it?

  8. Wish the Black List would just post the list instead of NSFW videos. Guess I'll just have to wait...

  9. Would it be possible to create a spoiler friendly sub-forum to chat about movies after their release?

    1. ThaVillain

      ThaVillain

      I'd second this. Shows too. Been more than a couple spoilers on the updates feed.

       

      I suppose we could do it in The Biz forum? But really, no one hardly posts there lol.

  10. DAVID VS. GOLIATH, storyline kept under wraps. Seriously? Is that an April Fools joke?

      I heard it's an "elevated" biblical action adventure story...

  12. Wow, Snowpiercer really blew me away. One of the best sci-fi movies I've seen in years.

      Where the heck did you see Snowpiercer? I thought it'd never see the light of day in the US?

  15. Hollywood is remaking The Grudge (2004) *AND* Jacob's Ladder? No. Just NO :( http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/horror-hit-the-grudge-going-reboot-route/

      The Grudge? Really? It's not even a decade old yet. This is gettin damn ridiculous...

  16. My latest action thriller, Kennedy Space Center, is going out. Wish me luck!

  17. Spent the ady yesterday at the multiplex while my truck was being worked on. 3 Days To Kill was completely forgetable, even though I enjoyed the script last year. Robocop wa a steaming turd. My passion is the craft of screenwriting. I'm a movie nut. I'm a story junkie. I'm a script hound. So why is that I can't remember the last time a film actually satisfied me... I have high hopes for Noah, even though Hollywood (Sodom and Gomorrah) looks like it's trimmed the ev...

      sbbn is right. In the 90's, everyone said "I miss the 80's movies." In the 80's, everyone missed the 70's. And in the 70's, everyone... Ah, well, you get my point!

  21. The lack/snub? of names and films this year is mindnumbingly confusing. I mean, The Book Thief gets one nom, original score (John Williams)? Michael B. Jordan gets nada? I guess this IS the most subjective industry.

      LOL Ejiofor is one of my favorite actors! It's just, for me, Fassbender and Nyong'o were AMAZING in 12 Years. Kinda overshadowed him IMO. His wasn't the best performance in that film.
