Re: "The First Ten"

""And why were you in Tokyo?" "Bigend. He's after the maker of The Footage." She watches him take that one in. He's one of those people apparently immune to the lure of The Footage; in his case, she knows, it has to do with his being his own maker, with his own obsessive need to generate his own foo...

I thought you strung all that shit together, called it 'Colorado' and sent it off to Antarctica or Australia or Tasmania or some place where nobody lives.

Re: "The First Ten"

The Chad is introspective. Thank you for this. I've always found the series to be fascinating but have been missing "seven." The individual films, and their manner of release, reminds me of the art boxes in William Gibson's "Count Zero." It would be interesting if there were a narrative thread conne...

I'm trying to avoid a narrow focus, so we can just pitch that as "I'm really good at not dying." That way it encompasses all of my near-death experiences.

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

I often state without irony that if you read Sidney Lumet's "Making Movies" and watch "12 Angry Men", "Network" and "Dog Day Afternoon", you've had a one-day film school right there. I watched "12 Angry Men" carefully before attempting my film "The Caddywhompus Years" which takes place largely in o...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Well, I don't know about "what makes a good movie good" Agreed, and despite that being exactly what I said it wasn't what I meant. Backing up the thought process a moment, I should rephrase that as "identifying elements in a movie which I enjoy," which doesn't even begin to resemble my first autist...

stuff that was, to me, insightful. stuff that was, to me, insightful. I really enjoy other people's educated perspective on what is actually going on in a screenplay and what makes a good movie good, whereas to my untrained eye a good movie is one where I didn't look at my watch more than a couple ...

Re: Podcasts...

My survivalist instincts in LA are an all-time-low. I kinda just figure that in case of emergency, I'm just fucked. Prepare to improve your quality of life for more likely scenarios. You can prepare for job loss. You can prepare for a power outage at work. You can prepare for an extended power outa...

Re: Podcasts...

I've never really done podcasts before, but I've been listening to Writing Excuses a lot lately. It's a 15 min cast once a week geared toward fiction writers (mostly sci-fi/fantasy) , so I don't know if anyone else here would even be interested, but lots of good writing advice. Very interested!

"In the Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast" - https://www.intherabbithole.com/the-podcast/

A little gun-heavy for my taste but not at all "Tin Hat Crazy Bat" and focuses on realism, not Mad Max. Start with the beginning episodes.

I finally saw "The Hunger Games." Not bad at all. Predictable as hell, but well-paced and decent characterization. So *this* is where Jennifer Lawrence came from...I get it now.
