Robocop

I decided to watch the 2014 version of Robocop. I hadn’t seen it since it came out. I watched it and saw what people were saying about why they liked it, and why they didn’t.
For me, it was good, but I did miss the internal struggle of Murphy. In the original, the lead struggled with the mem…

Breaking news: Michael J Fox arrested for insider sports betting

Stubhill News

MJF

Los Angeles—Michael J Fox was arrested Wednesday morning in relation to insider sports betting on DraftKings.

Fox aroused suspicion after achieving a statistically-impossible, perfect record on the site under the username NoChicken.

Authorities found an unusually worn copy of a sports almanac which was just recently printed and which has markings cataloging winning bets Fox has placed since the late 80’s.

“The operating theory is that the Back to the Future films were really documentaries from an original, prime timeline,” said NASA astrophysicist Barry Manilow. “The implications are heavy. It is suspected that we are living in an alternate 2015, as there are no flying cars and there are only four Jaws movies. We can only assume that we are forever stunted as a society. The amount of lives lost due to our lack of progress in technology and medicine is unfathomable. Worst of all, instead of hoverboards, this sad reality is limited to the Swagway.”

“We suspect…

‘Spider-Man’ Reboot Finds Its Writers: ‘Vacation’ Duo In Talks

Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Vacation writer-directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein are being set right now to write the Spider-Man reboot movie for Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios. The pair had been among the names on a shortlist to direct, but that gig went to Cop Car helmer Jon Watts, and the studio already has found its new Peter Parker in Tom Holland.

Getting a script ready for production was the next step as the pic is slated for release on July 28, 2017. Amy Pascal and Marvel’s Kevin Feige are producing the latest iteration of $4 billion superhero saga, which finds the action set in high school — though it is not considered to be an origin story.

In addition to another reboot in New Line’s Vacation, which comes out July 29 as their directorial debut, Daley and Goldstein paired on writing the Horrible Bosses films and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. They also co-wrote the script for

Learn Screenwriting through Scripts

Vocalady

You may have heard that writers read a lot. For novelists, it’s easy to recognize that other books can provide guidance on everything from characterization to world building. It’s the same for the aspiring screenwriter. Even though the finished form of the piece is a film, which is visual art, nearly every narrative film begins with a screenplay. Reading other screenplays will help you learn how to write them yourself.

The difference between watching a finished film closely and reading a script closely is that a whole film takes into consideration not just the story itself but all the other filmic elements that make the film what it is, from mise-en-scène to sound to editing. Done well, the form of the film creates the narrative. It transcends the script to truly become a visual art form. Reading a screenplay closely, the writer is left with nothing but the initial kernel…
