Pete wrote The Proposal (Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds comedy vehicle), Now You See Me 2, and that was it before Crazy Rich Asians.
Adele wrote for Lethal Weapon, Reign, Life on Mars, One Tree Hill, the Dynasty reboot...
In terms of writing experience, she was writing episodes since 2002, whereas he only started

I think that one of his big problems is that he made too big a world. And trying to draw too much of it in can lead to content that will make it harder to finish. Westeros has 9 different kingdoms (despite the terminology of the Seven Kingdoms, you have the Iron Islands, Dorne, and the seven MAINLAND kingdoms). And

I imagine that he is notorious for writing, editing, re-writing, re-editing, and doing it as he goes. Some will push through a first draft just to get the plot of the book done, and edit later. But I imagine he’s being careful because he had wound up with too much to tell and is trying to resolve it all.

Well, it stands to good reason now that this movie is going to hurt Disney’s profits on it financially. China is a rather big market, but how much would Hong Kong influence it?

Elvis never threw in with any political party during his career. He always stuck to performing, and left it at that. Of course, he did use his fame to help people, particularly the team of backup singers he kept (all African American, and ONE of them was Whitney Houston’s mama!). Every hotel, every venue he played at

I’ve been saying that fucking shit for years. Their big weakness is that Double Dragon and Super Mario Bros failed because they were based on video game properties. But if you watch both with the idea of “treat them as standalone movies,” you end up with a pair of “fun weird sci-fantasy movies” that really push the

I feel like the MCU ended as well as it could have. And I really don’t feel like investing into another one. How does one do better than Thanos and his universe-ending Infinity Gems plot?

That’s the thing, too. X-Men and Fantastic Four are major Marvel players, and they are taking a gamble pushing them back to 3-5 years out before getting them filmed. I am sure it will be worth the wait, but it remains to be seen if people will stick around that long.

Although, I do see the logic in WHY they are doing

I am glad that Endgame delivered on an epic ending, but...Look at the catalog of titles above. Looks like 5 movies, and 5 shows set within a 2 year span. And that’s not counting Blade, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Black Panther 2, The Fantastic Four, X-Men, the next Captain Marvel...all slated for a 3 year span. In 5

Even I would walk out of that, going “And this was done by a woman...is she okay?”

You should play MTG Arena instead. It’s on PC, free to download, and you get a ton of free decks unlocked to hit the game going. And you can do plenty in game to build up your collection and participate in events.

And, it is a LOT cheaper and has virtually no physical clutter.

Basically, know your filetypes.
.AVI, .MKV, .MP4 are the normal video filetypes you deal with. Anything else that you get offered is best pushed aside.

There’s a movie in production. Let’s worry about getting the movie first.

That was one of the best elements of the show. Crichton basically brought humanization to a series that was nearly all aliens.

Farscape set a few standards for me.
First sci-fi TV series.
First regular exposure to Muppets.
First exposure to a legitimately strong female character in Aeryn Sun.
First exposure to Claudia Black (cause why not?).
And first exposure to one of my favorite protagonists in a series ever in the form of John Crichton.

I thought my limit was reached with Black Flag. I got to playing it around a time when pirates were a big deal (for me, it was Black Sails on Starz). I played it, and then I realized that every entry into the series after that would likely have not given me more of what I wanted from the series: To see an epic story

Considering Annie was doing the serial killer thing since she was a kid...I wouldn’t mind seeing a young Annie get flamboyant with the kills.

I honestly wish that the show is given enough time to grow so that we do see elements of other popular SK properties come into the picture. I do want to see elements of Hearts in Atlantis come into the picture so we can see Ted Brautigan appear in some form.

This series does have the opportunity to utilize what made TZ great AND take the kind of progressive, balanced strides that tend to show. If Jordan Peele pulls this off, then we need the eventual crossover of Black Mirror and Twilight Zone.
