Re: Netflix’ “Don’t F**k With Cats”

It's a haunting reminder that reality is stranger than...

I hear you. I was thinking about discussing 4-Act Structure but nixed the temptation after seeing where this thread went.

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 1)

Frankly, I don't see the purpose of restating information from McKee, Field, Save the Cat and a woman's thesis paper only to conclude 3-act structure dates back to the caveman era.

Or, making a...

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

You're more than suggesting, Joe. You're insisting and taking issue with my opinion that other elements may be of more importance.

Re: Exorcising Cliche

How about showing the exorcism in progress with the trite dialogue on mute and use music. The Stones "Sympathy for the Devil" might be too obvious or humorous. Something else would be better. Could...

Re: Southern_land is sad

The ways of Gen Z are mysterious. They conduct friendships and relationships entirely on social media apps. No desire to hear the human voice. Weird.

I'm worried she'll become nearsighted.

Re: Southern_land is sad

Sequels and super heroes for worldwide movie goers. They've claimed their niche. The question is: will this niche dry up in 10 years? Less? Demographics and psychographics drive ticket sales for...

Wink Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

Your two-part piece on structure totals over two-thousand words and concludes with:

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

One of my writing professors said, "You must understand the rules of grammar before you can break them."

Internalize the proper use of commas then you can mix it up with em-dashes.

Re: Martin Scorsese's Op-Ed on Marvel and Cinema

Re: James Franco sued

If you think a 40 year old actor trolling Instagram and inviting 17 year olds to his hotel room for sex is cool, then I have nothing to say to you.
