  1. JEMIYAH JONES & THE FAIRIES OF NIR – THE AWAKENING OF BALIEKAH PEARL. Forget the 1st 10 rule -- I lost interest during the title!

  2. BREAKING NEWS: Nikki Finke to leave "Jane Got a Gun"

  3. So...anyone hearing the grumblings on Thor 2 re: Alan Taylor and run time? I, personally, would enjoy a two hour thirty minute cut...

  4. I think Skynet would've been more successful if they had cloned a hot chick, gave her AIDS, and then sent her back in time to sleep with John Conner. =)

  5. How often is it that a trailer is made out of a 3 - 4 min. film? Rhetorical question. Just was fun to see that one was made out of the short I wrote ("Love"): http://vimeo.com/54597715 "Love" makes its big screen debut at the Edinburgh Short Film Festival in a week or so (June 14th at The Granary).

  6. How did pirates torrent Arrested Development from Netflix? (Other than just aiming a camera at the screen)

  7. Hard to write when your muse is sleeping. Even harder when she has a hangover.

  8. you know how much of screenwriting is simplifying? i'd say most of it

  9. please, somebody get me inherent vice! i will trade a kidney and the "land before time" stuffed toy sitting on my desk right now

      Oh I didn't mean to imply that Spec_Writer. I just lament the fact that many of these great writers just disappear and become irrelevant.

      Dan, it's about reading writers like Pynchon. I worry more, that he may disappear cos no one is listening. I don't know Sanguine or any of the peeps here. But I'll wager this...You will be a better writer Dan, "After you have read the likes of Pynchon,

      Neal Stephenson, Don DeLillo, Thomas McGuane, Jim Harrison, Ann Patchet, Boy. You got so much to bring. But you have some homework to do.

  12. TIMECOP REMAKE should be about someone going back in time to stop the making of the original film so the remake feels fresh.

      There are people telling me daily that algorithms will one day rule our lives. I can tell you for certain that THOSE people have never been in LOVE. And if they have, it's merely an anomalous affection quotient attributable to the overindulgence in substances inducing outlying, abnormal, and uncorroberatable eroginea factors...No?

      Sorry, but read any Pynchon you can get your hands on and develop an opinion...Hint...He's amazing, before PTA gets his mits on it.

  14. If a magician entertains everyone in his audience that isn’t a magician... and said magicians say the show sucked... did it REALLY suck? Or did the magicians’ overawareness of how the tricks are done cloud their ability to sit back and enjoy the show?

      This is, to my mind, one of the richer topics to be bandied about of late. Why don't we, or you, or him take this over to chit-chat or one of the other moribund threads and give it some life. Because honestly, I think there's some life in this topic with regards to what's wrong with this town and other existential motifs in entertainment. I'm just sayin'

      I was really just being glib about NCIS. My mom watches it. Sometimes when I'm there, I watch with her and give everything away as it's telegraphed, just to piss her off. They do a fine job of storytelling.

      Interesting question that can be applied to any form of entertainment/performance. The "inside baseball" notion that experts, or others in the field will hold the performance to a different standard than the layman audience. The reason NCIS is so popular is that there are WAY more dullards out there, than there are writers.

  17. Why has the new Star Trek not beat the first one's opening weekend, even with 3D and Imax premiums and an 87% critics rating? It had the best trailer of the year. (No spoilers!)

      I'm with palostick. Like a painting in which construction lines underlie the finished product, I might not have minded all the hamfisted generic action tropes if they'd bothered to erase the construction lines before releasing the film. It looked more like a blueprint than a movie.

  18. Watching the herring run on Cape Cod. Poor bastards have to fight the current, swim UP waterfalls, all while avoiding poaching seagulls. But the reward is sweet: when they make it to the top they get their spawn on like its nobody's business.

  19. little women on cable, muthafuckas! also, i sat by brian grazer today at a coffee shop. good or bad i didn't try and pitch him on my next spec?

  20. BAM. Nailed down beginning sequence and ending scenes today . . . now just gotta figure out how to put the Oreo filling in this bizzatch!
