  1. Thanks to netflix, I just watched Rambo for the first time. Pretty fun film, can't believe I've never seen it.

      that movie was a bad mammy jammy in its day.

      Which ever the first film is ... probably first blood.

    3. Escapist

      First Blood is terrific. The rest get sillier and sillier.

  2. Why does my wife's family eat such fucking terrible food for Christmas!!!! WTF?

      Nic8767

      Yikes! In my Mom's house everything is done from scratch. I surprised we all don't gain fifteen pounds after the holidays.

      Jib go grab CHEF from Redbox and maybe after seeing it they'll change the menu next year.

      Opine, no amount of butter and sugar can make a potato tortilla taste good. I grabbed Chinese food after their crap feast to make up for it.

      Thanks everyone, it's called The Gang Gets Smudged ... it has to do with Ash Wednesday

      I'll put it in the works in progress if you want to read it.

  5. Just read Terriers and then watched the pilot episode. This is a hell of a show!

  6. My sister got the job on Twin Peaks! It's a dream job for her, since we've been huge David Lynch fans since we were young.

  7. Oh Fox, at least you could have aired Heiroglyph out of order before canceling it.

    1. axalon

      axalon

      Yeah what was up with canceling it before it even aired?

    2. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Such garbage. It was a fun read.

  8. I know I haven't been around much lately, but I never seem to catch the moment when people are in chat anymore. So my question is, when are you guys most likely to be around? It's been too long.

    1. Mysterian

      Mysterian

      Usually weekdays around noonish pacific time Jibs. It's been a while since we've seen you.

    2. Mike

      Mike

      And Jibs, I for one, can tell you that, you are sorely missed.

    3. aphid47

      Ah, thanks Mike.

  9. How in the hell is Running Wilde not cancelled yet?

    1. aphid47

      aphid47

      Don't get me wrong, loved AD, but this premise was interesting for exactly 3 episodes before it became fairly to mostly lame, and I didn't care anymore.

    2. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Dang.....you're correct......

    3. tbblue

      tbblue

      Breaks my heart it got cancelled.

  11. I enjoyed Captain Phillip even though I knew the ending already.

    1. ddollar

      Captain Phillips stays out the storm in his boat and becomes the millionaire co-founder of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Corporation.

    2. Michael L

      Michael L

      Yeah, but to its credit it's left ambiguous. You can't rule out that he's not a droid.

      I thought he was assassinated after pushing a remarkable bill through congress.

  12. Just submitted a couple of scripts to Austin

  13. Not sure if anyone has been reading the independent comic Echoes, but it would make one hell of a movie. Check it out if you haven't already. Here is the link to their website http://www.echoesthecomic.com/ and here is a link to see the first to issues free online http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/echoescomic/2011/echoes-cover/

      Damn, this is good.

    2. aphid47

      aphid47

      There are 4 of the 5 issues out already, and they seriously get better each issue. I would be shocked if this doesn't become a movie someday.

    3. aphid47

      Just started reading an earlier work the writer did called "Tumor". Pretty damn good so far.

  14. Trance was sumptiously shot, but story wise, was a huge fucking mess.

    1. aphid47

      aphid47

      I understand the story, I just didn't buy it.

    2. SeeriousTimes

      movie had a lot to sell and i'm poor.

      I'm not sure it had a lot to sell, it just wanted you to think it did.

  15. My wife and I started a podcast about the Criterion Collection. There's a post in the Works In Progress section if you're interested.

  16. Taxes done = brain fried. 3 schedule C's and a lot of vodka later ...

    1. storymaps99

      storymaps99

      Fwiw, I used to feel that way until I just broke down and hired an accountant. He only charges me $200 and it takes him 45 minutes! Takes me about 3 hours to get together my receipts and prep, but that's compared to the old days.

    2. storymaps99

      storymaps99

      Er, that's *nothing* compared to the old days, meant to say, in which I would do my taxes with my dad and the OCD factor was off the charts. :-0

      mebishop2001

      Any comedy writers want a free funny concept to consider running with? You've gotta be into flicks like IDENTITY THIEF. Let me know, thanks.

  17. enjoying the hell out of the Boardwalk Empire pilot

      Steve Buscemi is so badass in it!

    2. aphid47

      aphid47

      He is perfect for that part.

    3. vbn2019

      vbn2019

      Yeah. It's a damn good show

  18. We'd been talking about it in chat, but here it is ... the TB Writers Group https://groups.google.com/forum/#!pendingmember/tb-writers-group/apply

      Great idea guys! I'm sure the TB guys will want to be included. I'd be sure to email them at [email protected] so they can get in.

      Where does the chat take place? Is it on Google or here on the TB?

  20. Thank God the Star Wars people are smart and got Michael Arndt on board. I was hoping they got Pixar involved with the story.

    1. Writer

      Writer

      Will be really interesting to see who they put into the director's chair. Doubt that JJ will get to be the man behind this generation's Trek AND Star Wars. But who knows?

    2. Elliott79

      Elliott79

      It's a shame that Peter Jackson is busy and Spielberg has ruled himself out.

       

      They're the ideal candidates, in my opinion.

    3. aphid47

      aphid47

      There is so much baggage attached that the only real choice would be David Lynch.

  21. I've been reading A Serious Man script that I got out of the library. Is it just me, or is this thing a transcript? So many spelling errors, and awkward transitions, it can't be the actual script. Anyone else notice this?

    1. admin
    2. aphid47

      aphid47

      That surprises me, I would think studio drafts wouldn't have so many errors, spelling or otherwise.

    3. Nic.Lishko

      Nic.Lishko

      Coen's are infamous for this kind of stuff...Burn After Reading was a pain to get through.

  22. Know someone working on The Man in the High Castle pilot, some funny stories coming from set ;)

    1. Nic8767

      Nic8767

      Tell us more! :)

      ^ Yes, please. Huge fan of PKD, read the book not too long back.

    3. aphid47

      aphid47

      Mostly funny about what an asshole the director is ;)

  23. I'm excited to hear that The League on FX got picked up for a third season.

    1. daphmax

      daphmax

      I don't get FF at all, and even I think their show is funny and has its own brand of charm. Totally deserved.

    2. admin

      admin

      IMO: this is hands down one of the funniest shows on TV, and it has almost nothing to do with fantasy football (which is the reason i find so many people telling me they don't watch it).

    3. aphid47

      aphid47

      I didn't watch the first season for the same reason, I don't know anything about FF. But my friends kept pestering me to watch, and I finally gave in. Now it is my favorite comedy show.

  24. Just wanted to thank everyone who gave me feedback on my pilot script Interplay. I appreciate it very much and hope to return the favor.

      the level of weird and unrestrained brilliance here is amazing. I feel like this is a rabbit hole I totally want to fall in and never get back out of. Same way I feel about David Lynch, only I would WANT to get out of his rabbit hole..because I'd be afraid I'd take a wrong step, trip and fall down stairs and be trapped there forever by Killer Bob and -- I miss Twin Peaks. That's all. I miss Twin Peaks :)

      Cool site. This is basically Soderbergh's personal film art blog. Hope he keeps it up.
