  1. A CABIN IN THE WOODS prequels that tell the stories of how they managed to capture those monsters.

    1. Mr Cakes

      Mr Cakes

      oooh - I like that!

  2. A potential plot hole in INTERSTELLAR. Why do they need to get the space station off of Earth's surface? I understand that Earth is going to run out of food and oxygen, but space doesn't have food or oxygen either. Why couldn't they seal it and make it a surface space station?

      You're right - plot ravines

    3. Frobisher


      I was being facetious.

    4. anti_hero2012


      I think it ties into the film's theme. You know the whole "mankind wasn't meant to die on earth"."Our destiny lies in the stars" and all that good stuff.

  3. Given the success of HEAVEN IS FOR REAL, I was going to take advantage of the hype and write HELL IS FOR REAL, but there are enough movies about Ohio already. *rim shot*

      Uh oh. I was gonna say New Jersey, but every guy I ever met from there was a psycho.

      Based on the Louvin Brothers hit song Satan Is Real

  4. Take LIONS FOR LAMBS, change war to pro football and CTE. Change Tom Cruise from a senator to a team owner, Pete Berg to a coach, Derek Luke/Mike Pena to suicidal pro players. Keep Redford, Garfield and Streep the same. Oscar, please!!!!!

  5. What if Edward Snowden hadn't fled and exposed the NSA's Prism program, but stayed and used it to anonymously fight crime? It's THE LIVES OF OTHERS meets THE PRETENDER.

      Great point. We can call it Person of Interest: Miami

      Person of Interest - best alternate reality show ever conceived

  6. If anyone could piece together all the contradicting clues and figure out what happened with the missing Malaysian plane, I suspect it would be writers.

      I'm beginning to believe that foul play was involved in this situation. Could be as simple as a hijacker posing as a pilot, sitting in the jump seat of a plane and getting the flight crew to turn off the transponders.

  7. Imagine a U.S. president who had ten kids and the nightmare that would be for the Secret Service. Sounds like an idea for a movie.

      A Mitt Romney biopic?

    3. benskelly2


      LOL, Rob. That's what I was thinking. Turns out we saved the American taxpayer a lot of money!

    4. chandolaswinter


      that's a funny idea


  8. A famous actor goes on the run after he comes under suspicion for being connected (usually by six degrees) to every murder victim in the country. Kevin Bacon is... GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION!

      The reward of a great joke is in putting the connections together. Lose the parenthetical (six degrees) and you have gold.

    3. axalon


      I would totally watch this movie.


      When they have Bacon in custody rather than coming in with a folder full of the the victim's pictures, they bring in a 3TB hard drive.

    4. Frobisher


      Thank you, all.

  9. Usually, whoever wins the DGAs (GRAVITY) wins the Oscar for 'best picture,' but all year I've been hearing that 12 YEARS is a lock for best picture. What do you guys think?

    1. ... who are those guys?

      ... who are those guys?

      It was definitely the best one I saw, though I still have a few to see.

  10. HER reminded me of 500 DAYS OF SUMMER.

  11. It's just like STAND BY ME, but instead of kids looking for corpse b4 local thugs do -- It's a squad of soldiers looking for body of downed pilot & returning it to his family before Taliban finds it & parades it on the web.

      Reader George

      No, that's more GREASE meets LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.

    2. jmedley71


      I very much NEED to read that script! Holy shit, that's genius! It's like SAVING PRIVATE RYAN but more emotional, some how.

  12. Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman wrote for Hercules and Xena Warrior Princess. No wonder I always feel like "I've seen this before" when watching one of their movies.

  13. Bob Odenkirk kinda sounds like a made up name to me. Like he took the name of a character from Norse mythology and merged it with the name of a SciFi character, like a Jack Lokipicard or a Mike Thoradama.

  14. With no/few humans to keep all the nuclear power plants from melting down, you'd think we would've seen radioactive mutant zombies by now on THE WALKING DEAD.

    1. benskelly2


      I just assumed that's what turned them into zombies to begin with. :)

  15. I bet Walt would've stayed in New Hampshire if Ed had brought him some of those johnnycakes Vito Spatafore found when he went into hiding there.

      Arguably the most awkward of all The Sopranos storylines...

  16. Don't be bashful, send us your jokes! I promise not to tell anyone you wrote them. http://www.deadline.com/2013/09/jimmy-fallon-tonight-show-writers-complaint/

    1. dsjones


      Ha! I've got one for you but I'll only tell you if you get Jimmy Fallon to say it live. Guaranteed.

    2. PJMAC


      They should be honored the jokes were stolen. :)

    3. dsjones


      No. They should be compensated.

  17. Saw a promo for NBC's new series IRONSIDE. I initially thought it was one of those fake Adult Swim commercials.

      All I could think was "they're remaking Wheels and the Legman??"

    3. Frobisher


      @sbbn - I thought the exact same thing. That's why I thought it was an Adult Swim joke.

    4. PJMAC


      Was the world clamoring for a remake of IRONSIDE? No.

  18. Before he saved Mr. Banks, he saved Pvt. Ryan. Too bad he couldn't save CLOUD ATLAS. *rimshot*

    1. PJMAC
    2. tbwhite


      replace *rimshot* with *trapdoor opens*

  19. Uh oh! J.D. Salinger's got some new books coming out. Paul McCartney and Ringo better hire some bodyguards just in case.

    1. sangun


      The trailers for the Salinger doc and the Beatles' fan club secretary doc ran back to back last week when I saw a film. CIA plot?

    2. Frobisher


      That's quite a coincidence.

    3. horus33


      Shame the Salinger doc wasn't better. I left knowing more about J.D. but that only took about 30 mins. Overcrowded with actors who added nothing to the piece.

  20. Not sure why INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED is such a hit, did THE GAME PLAN dvd not come with a Spanish track or something? haha!

      I saw it a few months ago. Good movie? No. But it's not cynical or smug. And it's not trying to sell your kid a toy. I can get the appeal.

    3. specwriter


      It's a fun, silly comedy aimed at a family audience. What's the problem?

    4. sbbn


      I watched the trailer and although it wasn't bad, I didn't think there was anything unique or particularly appealing about it. Granted it did well for limited release but... it's still limited release. I'd be more impressed if it were pulling a Greek Wedding with wide release.

  21. I don't recall ever seeing so many columnists flocking to be contrarians as I have with this Ben Affleck/Batman thing. It's quickly becoming a cliché.

    1. sangun


      Nah, it's capitalism. It's just a way to drive angry traffic to your ad supported website.

  22. Thanks to this Ben Affleck casting decision, children everywhere will be under the impression that when Bruce Wayne isn't masquerading as Batman, he's masquerading as a blind attorney named Matt Murdock who's masquerading as the Daredevil. Haha!

    1. sangun


      Affleck masquerading as another character in the same movie is the only way they can convince you he's acting.

    2. Frobisher


      LOL. That reminds me of the Family Guy episode where Peter says, "I am going to prepare for this as thoroughly as Ben Affleck prepares for a role."

    3. naugehyde


      Who in his copious free time directed ARGO

  23. Anyone know what incited WME to pull this CAAN'T prank right now and not at some other time?

      Not sure why, but truthfully, for an industry that creates fun, I know a lot of people who welcome the jabs... as long as it stay topical.

    3. Jaco


      Any truth to the rumor that bloWME balloons are being released at an upcoming premiere?

    4. admin


      I hope the balloon thing is true. That'd be hilarious.
