Re: El Camino - anyone else underwhelmed?

I liked it a lot. It's a nostalgic victory lap for people who loved the show.

Not a great standalone movie, but it closed Jesse's story in a more conclusive way and did nothing to diminish the...

Re: Joker

Didn't hate it. Didn't love it. It's a Taxi Driver and King of Comedy homage with a coat of clown paint.

One thing is bothering me though as I reflect on this movie a few days later: The Joker was...

Re: Ad Astra

Beautiful cinematography. Striking action sequences.

Didn't really love the ending and found the theme a touch hokey.

Still a good movie. Those user scores are puzzling. I guess maybe if you have...

Re: Franklin Leonard

My competition is Fitzgerald, Shakespeare, and Homer.

And honestly, they need to step up their game. It's been a while since they wrote anything on my level.

Re: Franklin Leonard

I'm thinking the wannabe screenwriter game mimics the SF and Yukon gold rushes in the sense that the number of people getting rich selling services to the "miners" is higher than the number of people...

Re: Austin 2019

Readers are a crapshoot in general. I've had that type of thing happen many times. First reader: "Wow, this dialogue is great. Some of the best dialogue I've ever read." Next reader: "It was a good...

Has anyone else entered? Have you heard anything back yet? I know notifications should be trickling out soon.


I entered a TV pilot, but haven't heard anything back either way. I'll be a little...

Re: "Bad" Movies You Love

Good call on Surviving the Game. It's pure entertainment.

It's extremely basic and corny, but you can't say it's not entertaining.

The whole cast dials up the cheese to 11.

Re: "Bad" Movies You Love

Commando has been a not-very guilty pleasure for a long time. It's so over-the-top corny and unrealistic that I think it only works if you take it as a comedy.

"Professional"



These are not words that belong together.

Re: Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood

I saw it twice, which is funny because after the first time I watched I thought, 'That was nice, but I don't ever need to see it again.' What pulled me back was the charm of the characters and the...

Re: Avengers End Game

The audience I saw it with really enjoyed it. Lots of clapping at the end.

For me, it delivers some massive payoffs, but I didn't like it as much as Infinity War or Black Panther overall. You know...

Re: Flat Out Rude?

I suppose anything can work, but when I was at a big studio on a long temp assignment, the Director of Development's word for cold callers was "crazies". So many of those people are out of touch with...

Re: Write the Right Script by Chris Lockhart

Re: Write the Right Script by Chris Lockhart

Let me preface this post by saying that this is NOT an attempt to argue that there are loads of diamonds in the rough and that certain scripts only succeed because the "right" people get involved....

Re: Nicholl 2019

I didn't mean four quadrant in the conventional sense of some huge blockbuster. What I meant is a script that will be relatively satisfying to everyone without offending or alienating anyone.

All else being equal, I think you're going to do better with straightforward dramas and thrillers than you are with comedies or crazy sci-fi/fantasy stuff. I also think the committee nature of the...

Re: What's a realistic batting average on queries?

Did the LA thing for a few years. Even had a lot badge for quite a while. I'd be willing to relocate there if the prospect of work became realistic, but I'd prefer to stay put until I at least have a...

I get that time is currency and that they don't have enough of it to sit down and filter through every single thing that comes across their desk.

On the other hand, "delusional" seems like a...

What's a realistic batting average on queries?

So, I'm in a bit of a strange situation where I have a script (one hour TV pilot) that I feel pretty good about, but I can't get anybody to read it. I'm not saying this script is the next Emmy winner...
