Re: The Last 10 Days

I heard Wendy's is only serving soy patties now. Is this true? I like Wendy's but I don't want to grow manboobs.

Re: Midpoint

The second half of Jaws is one of the greatest film experiences imo.

Interesting topic. I'm debating between two ideas for my next story, but in one of them the midpoint is the biggest moment of the...

My theory is that he's salty about about your response in the Agent Orange thread. Simple as that, but what do I know? I don't care either way. I guess we needed more conflict to keep this story...

Re: Trim Down That Spec

The first draft of my second spec was 147 pages. It took months to get it to 119. Now that I look back on it I'm sure that most of what I cut was self-indulgent crap. The weird thing is a 130...

Re: First 10 (or 1) page

Yeah. I just finished my third and I still suck so I guess I should follow Mark Twain's advice and start chopping wood.

Ah, excellent then. From now on all my pages will be great. Nay, every word. Every letter even?

Re: First 10 (or 1) page

William Goldman wrote that after about three scripts an aspiring screenwriter isn't going to get much better. Do you agree with that?

Last two nights I watched-

McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971) - Good movie but not as good as I was expecting. The first half was interesting but fairly slow. The second half, after the arrival of the...

Re: Escape Movies For The Pandemic

Ray (2004) sucked me in and I first saw it as a kid. Probably the only music biopic movie that's done that.

Re: Us

Get Out was entertaining enough but this movie bored the hell out of me. I also thought Lupita's "tether" voice and performance was cringey, though I agree she is a good actress.

Re: Random film thread...

Saving Private Ryan remains the best war movie imo. Still hard to watch at parts. Fury and Beasts of No Nation were also good recent ones. I only saw the Daniel Craig/Rooney Mara version of Girl with...

I hadn't heard of that but it sounds interesting. The only good Vietnam war movie I recall seeing is Apocalypse Now, which isn't even really a Vietnam War movie. I'll check that out.
