Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

tRump was briefed about the COVID-19 threat on or before Jan 20. Two days later (Jan 22) he was quoted as saying, "We have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China."

Re: Choosing a Location Where the Writer has Never been

I agree that exhaustive research can be useful, but I'd be cautious of the sources. Using only travel guides and other encyclopedic sources may give a superficial, regional view, and miss the...

Come as You Are

It could be a Disney road trip movie... if it weren't about three disabled virgins running away to a Canadian brothel to get laid for the first time. So much heart, great performances!

Re: The Goldfinch

Do report back. For me, the opening two minutes raised a red flag.

Re: The Goldfinch

Watched this in flight. A good lesson for what happens when writers/filmmakers fail to cut excess exposition. I hit the stop button somewhere over the Appalachians.

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Are you asserting that anyone who's watched JJR would come away with any other thought, other than Taika was using satire and tragedy to show the absurdity and evil of Nazi fascism? It's hard to...

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Saw this for the first time on a flight (tried twice to see it in local theaters, but it sold out). A mix of beautiful and disturbing themes woven into farcical, touching and devastating scenes. ...

Re: A Christmas contest, perhaps.

If the deadline is Jan 1, then I think the Xmas/holiday spirit will still be in the ether, and writers will have a bit more time to write, while getting all family/personal holiday stuff done. The...

Re: A Christmas contest, perhaps.

Why a deadline before Xmas, 16 days? What's the harm of letting it run until Dec 31? Keep the prompt/theme broad, maybe just "Holidays." Specific plots are a turnoff.

Re: October 2019 Contest + results

FWIW, I sat this one out because the prompt (finding a body while burying a body) was too specific for my taste - felt like using someone else's idea.

Re: Jojo Rabbit

You know, after watching the trailer again, and then reading an interview with the director, I agree. There's a lot more soul in this movie.

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

So you're of the belief that the standard for success for all criminal and civil statutes is 100% effectiveness? Anything less than 100% effectiveness is evidence that there would be no difference...

Blinded by the Light

Wonderful and masterful! Kudos to Director Gurinder Chadha and screenwriter Sarfraz Manzoor. If you've ever felt trapped by life's circumstances, you'll get this.
