Re: Mulan: Did Disney Foresee The Backlash?

Honestly, I'm stunned that no one had any sort of common sense. That there wasn't SOMEONE there to say, hey, let's not use land where atrocities are occurring, let's not thank people who are...

Re: Theme and Opposing conflict

Re: Made the Black List "Top List" - how can I use that?

I'm also going to be overly optimistic and not say what I think about the know-it-all tone of the above advice.

Re: Timings to specific page

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

High.

(And he has the same name as the other guy, because wouldn't they recognize him if he were an action star? Also, maybe he can be guilty of some minor crime, like he owes an ex-wife or...

Re: New Ideas

I just came here to list this. Hahah. I loved Blockbuster. This could be a horror maybe? Halloween night?

Re: Picking Right Idea

I get that. But so much of what sells is NOT a strong concept. Home Again is NOT a strong concept. To me, a strong concept is something like A Quiet Place. There are very few strong concept movies...
