Re: Do Studios Make Money Losers Intentionally?

THE TREE OF LIFE has made about 40 million worldwide, by the way. (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=treeoflife.htm) Add in all the other revenue streams and I'm sure it's going to be...

Re: Do Studios Make Money Losers Intentionally?

You didn't say Hollywood made these, but you did say "studios", which kind of implies Hollywood. Yes, there are small boutique studios besides the major players in Hollywood, many in fact, but it...

Re: Do Studios Make Money Losers Intentionally?

I can't tell if the OP is trolling or not.

Bill pretty much covered it. I don't know much about LAST NIGHT but I'm sure the other two will be profitable in the long run. Boxofficemojo already has...

Re: Agent, Lawyer "or" Manager

I'm unrepped so take my broad generalizations with a grain of salt, but I honestly don't understand why writers need managers.

Obviously the more people you have in your corner, bringing their...

Re: Let's talk about DUNE.

I'm pretty lenient with what I will put under the sci-fi umbrella. I know there's a certain school of thought that believes science fiction must essentially have legitimate beakers-and-bunsen-burners...

Re: Let's talk about DUNE.

I think they got the production design about 90% right. And the general tone is pretty close to the mark. It's an acceptable compromise between the styles of Herbert and Lynch. They had the raw...

Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer

Although I loved the movie and thought they knocked the ape characters out of the park, I do agree with some of the complaints about the human characters.

SPOILERS:

The James Franco and Jon...

Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer

It was ALL CGI (http://www.slashfilm.com/rise-planet-apes-early-buzz-scenes-weta-video/). The apes are some of the best CGI I've ever seen. Better than Gollum. They're getting close to perfecting the...

Re: The proper Way to Set Up the "Rules of a World"?

It's only really prudent to think about budget if you have plans to make it yourself, or go through low budget channels to get it made. If you're just writing it as a spec, then go nuts, and worry...

Re: Let's talk about DUNE.

Yeah, I didn't mention them because they didn't end up joining the Ridley Scott team that came afterwards... but they are definitely notable players in the Jodorowsky DUNE project. Jodorowsky himself...

Let's talk about DUNE.

I recently read DUNE, DUNE MESSIAH and CHILDREN OF DUNE. Has anyone read past the initial trilogy? If so, what are your thoughts? Should I keep going? I know the sequels/prequels by Herbert's kids...

Re: The proper Way to Set Up the "Rules of a World"?

Just saw your second post. To format a SUPER (this would look like the text that opens BLADE RUNNER, for example) do this:

Re: The proper Way to Set Up the "Rules of a World"?

I would caution against writing something like that in action lines, since it's pure exposition and there's no way to visually show it on screen. It would be purely for the reader, which is kind of...

Re: What's the coolest name you've ever heard?

Hehe, thanks.. not my real name of course. It is actually a derogatory term. The literal translation is "pale ghost faced person" or something, which is a decent physical description of me.

Re: Contagion

Looks like a solid thriller to me. Love Soderbergh. I won't speculate on how successful it will be, but I'm sure it will be a quality film. Also looking forward to HAYWIRE.

Re: Larry Fishburne gets the Perry White role in "Man Of Steel"

I like that picture. Cavill looks manlier than Routh did. The costume looks fine, who cares if it looks like it was made out of basketball rubber? The more important factor here is that it looks like...

Re: Worst movie year ever?

No? 300 million worldwide theatrical. And the kids copped that sh!t at Target. A modest success is still a success, don't forget. It would be easy to look at BATMAN BEGINS and doubt the box office...
