  1. My sister got me Your Screenplay Sucks! for Christmas. I'm reading it now and it's quite good. What's your favorite screenwriting book?

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      I love when the used books are somehow more expensive than a brand new copy. Also, no review below four stars!

      I concur -- Bill's "blue books" are great, and a nice price.

  2. Listened to The Q + A with Goldsmith about Another Earth. All three of the peeps he interviewed were amazing. That film was ALSO amazing. So freaking inspiring to me to just get out and film something...

  3. My New Year's Resolution is to get a Manager. What's yours?

  4. Just now realized there's no Brit List this year. Sad.

      Those scripts were always so hard to find anyway... but yeah, it was good for a few random projects popping up..

      Did the Brits stop writing scripts? Wouldn't be surprised, with the state of the British film industry at the moment.

  5. Finally, a trailer for Burt Wonderstone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IvFfIpZ2yA

      Nice George! Went to Rock Bottom instead. Great Christmas brew. If you're going through Pitt's airport, there's a bar that has Founder's Breakfast Stout. Pretty awesome.

  9. So who read scriptshadow's book? Thoughts?

    1. nazardo

      nazardo

      Yeah it's a bit of a mixed bag. The tips are useful but nothing you haven't heard before. It's better than I thought it would be.

      Thanks for all the thoughts! I think I'll hold off...

  10. Stop what you're doing and read From NY to Florida. It was amazing. 5/5.

    1. LAscribe88

      LAscribe88

      Thanks for the rec, CB. I'll check it out!

  11. Welp, black friday has come and mostly gone. Time to write and make the following: 1 Cup of hot cocoa + 1 shot of Peppermint Schnapps. You're welcome.

  12. Posted a review of Sanctuary over in the members review sections...wrote a bunch of plot stuff out as well. Let me know what you thought of the script!

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Yeah, I pretty much write it scene by summary scene until about 3/4th's of the way through. YOU CHOSE...WISELY.

      Have you read Our Name is Adam? I got through the first act, and found it's impossible not to picture Tom Cruise murdering the role since it's so wrong for him. I could be wrong, but it seems like more of a Bill Murray or Bradley Cooper role.

    3. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      I have not yet Dan, but I'll definitely check it out!

  14. Rise of the Guardians was the biggest surprise for me of the year. I will totally see it again when it comes out and pay to see it in 3d. It was AMAZING.

      Glad to hear. My son is fired up for it. Not crazy about the look of it.

      Just goes to show how different everyone is.Saw it last night. No emotion for me in the story whatsoever.

    3. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Marketing also did nothing for me. It was a free screening. Blew my mind.

      craig - it certainly does...

  15. Learning how to do coverage from a doc someone posted from WME's How To. Just wanted to say that I love this site and I hate the things I've heard lately. I appreciate all the people who have posted scripts/treatments/samples/whatever on here. You've really given this outsider a lot to learn so THANK YOU.

    1. Galleria.Pictures

      Absolutely - it reinforces a lot. However there is a danger that you end up thinking too technical.

      Charlie, was that posted on TB? Or did you get it elsewhere?

       

      Mysterian, it seems like Scriptshadow was first, and Tracking Board may be next in the crosshairs. Here's hoping it isn't...

    3. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      K. Ryans posted coverage a while back. Check the file exchange!

  17. The trailer for Side Effects (aka This Bitter Pill) was hysterical to me, because I know what happens on page 40ish...SPOILERS IN COMMENT

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Because channing tatum's character dies like 40 minutes into the film and the trailer made it seem like he would be in the entire film. What a strange pull out the rug from under ya kind of lead on!

    2. sangun

      sangun

      After the GI Joe: Retaliation debacle you apparently have to make sure Tatum doesn't die in your trailer.

  18. Anytime I see a headline of an "older" script finally getting actors attached and heading into production, it always make me feel good. Persistence and patience is the key people.

  19. Love the homepage taglines you guys come up with. "Anne Hathaway has 'Low Self-Esteem' " I could've told you that.

  20. Top 3 scripts you've read this year. Doesn't have to be written this year. Go.

    1. nazardo

      nazardo

      The Invitation, Meet the New Boss, Dead of Winter

      I just read the pilots for New Girl and The O.C. and both are very strong. New Girl wasn't quite there, but it showed potential. The character of "Coach" had a lot of screen time. No Winston. Was Marlon Wayans Coach in the pilot, and did that air?

  21. Finally reviewed another script. The Outsider, from the top of last year's black list. Member Reviews!

    1. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      He didn't write the script...Just the novel. I'll have to see what happened to it Craig. Otherwise I'll re-read it and see if it still holds a place as my favorite script still waiting to be produced.

  22. I gotta say, the cinematography in the last episode of Breaking Bad was BEYOND amazing. Seriously. A camera guy can learn a lot from this show.

    1. storymaps99

      storymaps99

      Bryan Cranston said that Vince Gilligan told him from the outset that the show was about going from Mr. Chips to Scarface. Funny how Scarface ended with Pacino firing grenades from an M-16, and Walter White begins this season by buying an M-60, another heavy machine gun. "The Last Stand of Heisenberg?" Who will be dead at this point -- Jesse, Hank, Lydia, his wife, kids? I think SAUL will be the lone survivor, and slink off into the distance holding a bag full of $100 million. :-)
