  1. My short horror story The Lake Erie Siren will appear this June in the Spring 2019 edition of Mad Scientist Journal.

  2. 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

      Off the top of my head, Married to the Mob and Midnight Run are two. I'm sure theres more.

  3. Is this site going under? Just read that the news part of TB is getting shuttered?

  4. 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).

      Great question. I have no answer. You would think they would want to vie for an Oscar and obviously the films are really good.

  5. Hey guys, new TB Red here to say hello. I took things over late last month, and am still getting up to speed on things and just wanted to say hello. Unfortunately, I'm also doing so with a spot of bad news - it seems IP Board, who hosts the forum has officially done away with the Chat feature. We're exploring alternatives, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up as soon as I had confirmation from them. Otherwise, I'm still getting used to everything, and looking forward to gettin...

      I'm not sure what happened to the mods and admins. It's disappointing how long everything takes to get fixed here. TB Red, TB Black, what's the deal? WE all want this to be an active resource. Communication and efficiency are key to making that happen.

  9. This forum has died. Two years it was vibrant. Chat usually full. Up to date script exchange. I miss those days.

      The script exchange will pick up. It's summer. Nothing ever happens in the summer.

  10. 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?

      Maybe 'Falling Down' with Michael Douglas? Maybe...

  12. Walking dead screenplay pdf? Want to see how many pages it is with all the action and commercials for an hour long show.

      The convention is to ask for scripts in the ISO section. Thanks.

  13. I know everyone is different and everyone has their go-to coverage analyst, but I really wanted to show some love for www.scriptexaminer.com. I have used everyone from Black List to TB and several independents and Ashish coverage is THE best out there for the money. My last round of coverage resulted in 3 thorough pages of notes and I can't say it wasn't his suggestions that got my script in the shape it needed to be in to land me a manager. Just a friendly tip to those in need.

  14. Hi everyone, I just wanted to say goodbye of sorts, perhaps not forever. In a few days, I won't be renewing my TB subscription. I want to say thanks again to all the terrific members here and the happy sharing. Perhaps in a few months, I'll join back in. My Kindle is going to be hungry, I know... If anyone wants my email address, drop me a message in the next few days.

  16. Does anyone have a recommendation for a great evening/weekend screenwriting class (film or TV) in LA or NYC that has you finish a draft of something by the end of it?

      Scott Myers is a great resource for screenwriters -in case you didn't know. He is one dedicated individual. Mad respect.

  22. One of the first scripts I ever tackled was an adaptation of Ocarina of Time. Netflix, give me the job.
