  1. As I dig myself deeper and deeper into this 15 page hole, I prayed for inspiration and god delivered in the form of deadline and Soderbergh: http://www.deadline.com/2013/04/steven-soderbergh-state-of-cinema-address/

  2. Anyone else think the latest episode of Mad Men was lazy and clunky? Probably my least favorite of the entire series run, and I'm a huge fan.

      I like the episode. I did however feel like the MLK-ness of it felt like they rushed the writing. We all knew the episode was coming. It kind of felt like they were in the writers room saying "OK, it's the MLK episode, let's get this over with..."

  3. Head over to www.warnerbros.com to see...err hear... General Zod ... =)

  4. Casting Dennis Leary in 'Draft Day' is genius.

  5. Ever heard this line before in regards to a handgun? "There's twelve in the clip and one in the throat." Raylan said it on Justified, and I've NEVER heard that "throat" reference before, wonder if it comes from Elmore Leonard or a wholly original term from the show writers?

      I've definitely heard that one before, among others.

  6. evil dead... blech.

  7. I've come to the conclusion that attempting to find and DL evry script from every BL from '05 on is a GIANT WASTE OF TIME. Plus, I'm lazy. So there's that too.

  8. GI JOE 3... Jesus. With tv shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Top Of The Lake... why would anyone bother going to the movies anymore?

      FYI, I was responding to "why would anyone go to the movies anymore?" For the record I have NOT seen GI Joe, but I will be seeing films like Into Darkness, Superman, etc, on the big screen for sure.

      If Breaking Bad was on a 30 foot screen, I'd watch it.

      Because a 30 foot screen won't fit inside my living room.

  11. Going through a writing dry spell. Almost been a month. Feeling kind of crappy about it. Anyone else ever have a long period of no writing?

    1. ThaVillain

      ThaVillain

      Been 6 months for me. Moved, had comp issues, new job, no software, etc. Luckily my bro picked up the slack. And I've been outlining and doing story notes like mad. But, FD is on sale at Writers Store, so my drought will end this weekend! Can't wait!

      How would you guys rate your experience with the Black List so far? My brother and I are thinking of putting a script up there, once its finished.

       

      Maybe we should start a thread on BL impressions, if there isn't one already...

  14. This is strange. I usually only write fiction/fantasy, but my agent just called and said Fox News wants to hire me.

  15. What are the thoughts on flashbacks? Are we still hating those or...?

    1. ThaVillain

      ThaVillain

      I don't think anyone ever hated on flashbacks, its just that you see them done terribly and pointlessly a lot. Same with opening a script with a flash forward. If it serves no purpose, axe it.

  16. Short being reviewed on Scriptshadow tomorrow. Good, bad or ugly . . . Should be interesting.

  17. Has anyone seen Broken City? How is it?

  19. I don't know what people are stocking up on more - assault weapons or screenplays. Both could black market items by the end of 2013. What I think is we're in a dead news cycle. Where's Tiger Woods to wreck his SUV when we need him...

      It's already happening. Simply Scripts was shut down. Scriptshadow was shut down. A few other lesser known sites as well. It looks like folks are setting their sites on TB next, now that they're done with Scriptshadow. We will see what happens...

      The cartoon comment is spot on. I didn't like it at all.

      I see what you did there, Charlie... LMAO

       

      For those interested, today's comments are pretty entertaining as well.

       

      I just hope Tracking Board isn't the next site on the list. A lot of folks haven't been happy about the specs being posted here...

  23. If you haven't read "Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" yet, do yourself a favor and read it. It's a winner. My favorite by far out of both the Black and Hit lists. So there's that. :)

      So, which one am I supposed to be reading?!?!
