  1. Anyone watch The Interview yet? Worth checking out?

      I tried. I likened it to torture. Did the terrrorists win here or did we all just plain lose. :)

  2. Happy Holidays to one and all. Just like to say this consistently stays a great resource. Thanks to all the contributors - Hit List, Black List, FYC scripts, old scripts, spec scripts, TV scripts. Just great. Thank you. Now make sure you read some of the scripts instead of just having a million of them. So much to learn. Never give up on your writing dreams. Never ever.

  3. Liking the idea of Paramount London. Wonder what rides they'd create based on their films?

  4. What's the best one you found? http://stuffmasher.com/

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

  5. Besides Urban Dictionary, do you know any good resource for current teenage lingo?

      What I've noticed, over the past few years, is the overuse of "I mean" when beginning a sentence, and the overuse of "like", as in every other word. You write it like that and you'll be golden. :)

  6. 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. :)

  7. Great tip that a journalist just shared with the office, that I think is relevant to all screenwriters too: "Always write with the confidence that you can tell that particular story better than anyone else on the planet".

  8. Can anyone play douchebag as well as Bill Paxton?

      James Woods is pretty douchey on a regular basis.

  9. Well, thanks to the Oregon Ducks for telling us what we already know, which is that they had ZERO business ever being in the top 25.

  10. Very excited! Looks like I have a literary agent for my kid lit book!

  11. 45 spec sales this year. What does that tell us?

      We better start befriending wealthy people so we can make our own movies then take them to the festivals in the hopes they get sold. Or, just go the OnDemand route. Either or. :)

  12. Screenplays (produced and unproduced) with your favorite twist endings? Minimum spoilers please.

  13. Feathers will be ruffled by this statement, but here goes: Louie sucked this season.

      Ben's use of "iconoclastic" fits this season to a tee. I saw every epi, I saw nothing wrong with it. If anything we got deeper into his and his kids characters. Plus, he was a hero. ;)

  14. What's the membership code for the Launch Pad comp?

  15. Bodyguard movies? With the exception of "The Bodyguard" (Kasdan) and "Man on Fire"

  16. Quick Q: Your favorite movie of all time? P&T

      I heard the next "Backdoor" is a sci-fi going by the title "10 for Uranus" With that said, my all time favorite is Chinatown. I could literally watch that ten times back-to-back. Literally.

  17. They Came Together is a better Saves the Cat than Saves the Cat. Incredibly hilarious. If you love Stella, Naked Gun, Hot Shots, etc. you will love this.

  18. Edge of Tomorrow is really great, original sci-fi. Highly recommend!

  19. Anyone know of any examples of really good single camera comedy pilots?

  20. The number of writers getting signed up with reps off the back of the TB pilot contest is truly amazing

      Red, some writers don't or can't see investing in themselves. And that's how I see coverage services and contests, investment.

  21. Industry joke: "Dude, Paul T Anderson is doing Castlevania." "ARE YOU SERIOUS?!" I open script. "Paul WS Anderson? Oh. That's different."

      This kind of makes me want to hold a football for you.
