  1. Ending my last night in LA by going to The Edison. Sweet steampunk themed bar.

  2. My buddy is the great grand son of the lyricist for The Wizard of Oz and is doing a movie about the music behind the film. Check out his kickstarter! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-sound-of-oz

      That is So. Cool. Fun fact: Yip Harburg recycled a lyric that went unused in the film but which survives in the stage production-- "Follow the rainbow over the stream; follow the fellow who follows his dream"-- for a song in "Finnian's Rainbow." This is the only instance I'm aware of in which a lyricist plagiarized himself.

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

      A lot of my fan stuff is on my co-writer's old PC. If I can get him to find the files, I'd love to upload it.

  4. Here is your monthly reminder to back up all of your work! Jump drives, hard drives, clouds, phone etc. Use what you choose, but save your work!

      Another tip -- When asked if you want to overwrite, always check WHICH file is being overwritten. ie. Moving a new file to a USB stick, but you rush, and put the old file over the new one by mistake.

  9. Reading Situation Comedy. Note to author: if you're going to make a note that you're changing the format, but keep forgetting to change said format, it's kinda hard to know what's going on in the script.

  10. I can not say enough good things about The Swimsuit Issue. Might be the best of the year for me.

    1. Ashish

      Ashish

      Spot on. The writer's got such a great voice. Reminded me a bit of Charlie Bartlett as well.

    2. Ashish

      Also, "You look like you're smoking Optimus Prime's penis." -- easily the funniest line I've read all year.

    1. Cdrzewie

      Cdrzewie

      I got Saw meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding ... thats a spec if ive ever heard one

    2. craktactor

      craktactor

      Beetlejuice meets Meet The Parents. That actually sounds like a good comedy/horror.

    3. Ashish

      Ashish

      Godzilla meets Gladiator.

  12. Love him or hate him, Max Landis wrote a nice little letter to screenwriters on reddit the other day: http://www.reddit.com/r/Screenwriting/comments/2oc1eb/open_letter_to_screenwriters_from_max_landis/

      Chris Pratt is a new star in the making...just sayin'

    3. axalon

      axalon

      ideafeast -- I think the idea is that Hollywood isn't producing nearly as many new stars as it used to.

       

      Chris Pratt and Benedict Cumberbatch are anomalies.

  13. The Knick is such a damn good show. Probably my favorite of the year. Only 3 eps in, but this would be my reason for buying cinemax.

      You want to see a truly brilliant show? See Peaky Blinders. Best TV since... well... forever. You will NOT be disappointed. :)

      craktactor is right. Peaky is superb.

      Another mystery is why writers believe that someone who has chosen anonynomity is a) in the position they claim to be or B) will help launch their career.

    2. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Agreed.

      But either way, looking at the list, the one about make synchronised swimming sounds hilarious!

      Some have props. Some of our fellow TBers know them. The only way your career will move is writing a great script, IMHO.

  14. HAPPY BLOOD LIST DAY!!!!!

    1. Cdrzewie

      Cdrzewie

      a few of them are assignments that usually don't get out on the town, which I raise an eyebrow to

    2. alexanderpacheco

      alexanderpacheco

      and the number two selection is managed by Lee Stobby, who just happens to be Kailey Marsh's roommate/BFF. Highly suspicious list.

    3. Gunnerkat

      And Russell Ackerman is attached to produce 2 of the scripts. Nothing personal but what has he produced besides shorts?

  15. Go see The Book of Life as fast as you can!!!!!!

    1. mebishop2001

      mebishop2001

      Saw it for my kids this weekend. Great visuals. Love triangle story was pretty tired in my opinion. Worth a watch.

    2. markerstone

      markerstone

      I did first weekend - kids loved it!

    3. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Yeah dudes! It's getting hit at the box office, needs the word spread!

  16. If at first you don't succeed, make another Green Lantern movie, because WHY WOULD YOU TRY AN ORIGINAL CONCEPT INSTEAD?

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Done.

      Interesting takes, guys. We shall see what happens!

    2. David Fakrikian

      David Fakrikian

      Guys, producers just want to make sure their movie get made. They would do originals if originals would get financed. They don't, so they rehash things instead.

      I believe at the 30th anniversary screening of Terminator, Gale Anne Hurd said they'd never be able to make Terminator today because it's not based on an existing IP.

  17. Sick today. watching Gremlins, Goonies and Monster Squad.

    1. mebishop2001

      But it's got Corey Feldman... so it's awesome forever.

    2. Zoned

      Don't 4get 2 add in "Explorers" to round out the collection, Chuck. Monster Squad is tight though, "Wolfman's got nards!" I hope you feel better, soon, Chuck.

  19. No, the Henchmen mentioned in Sales is not mine. Yes, they're very different stories.

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      There's still hope! Just like their are dozens of movies about superheroes, there's room for a few about henchmen and sidekicks and villains,etc
