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: Horror title help

Soul Possession
I know, comedic, corny and probably used a 1,000X, but I couldn't help myself. I have a weakness for homonyms.

OTH...
Soul Possession, Pt. 2 has kind of an indy vibe to it. Yep, I...

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Agree!!! Tied in perfectly with earlier dialogue and action.

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. ...

Very happy to see JJR get a nod for Best Picture! Well deserved!

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!)

I understand, but you and others don't seem to understand the difference between "well-regulated" and prohibition. No viable political entity in the US is calling for an outright ban on firearms...

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

You do realize that "banning all guns" is a fear-mongering tactic used by the NRA lobby to keep them relevant and to distract from commonsense gun safety regulations that a vast majority of Americans...

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.

Re: What is a hook and do I need one?

For me, a hook is a relatable irony that you can build a story around.

Mr. Nobody

Watched this last night. Blew me away - story, acting, cinematography, sound, etc. Why this wasn't a sensation here, is a complete mystery.

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

I honestly didn't see yours, Joe. I didn't have time or the energy to wade through some of the longer posts.

BTW, I wrote the last of those three loglines.;)
