Well the podcast has managed to make it to 50 episodes so today I thought we would do something a little different. This may be a boring episode to some but I have had multiple people reach out to me asking about how they write a screenplay. Some just wanting to know how to get started. Well a big part of my research for my own writing involves breaking down movies I watch into a script format so I thought it would be fun to do the same on the podcast. Now I am by no means an arbiter of what it takes to be a screenwriter. I have no experience in selling a script or making a movie, I just hope that one day I will. This is just my personal advice and take on the best way to get a beginner started. Hopefully anything I say here can inspire the next person to finally take to that keyboard and write a script of their own.

Well this week was supposed to be Freddy vs Jason but that episode might be moved to Halloween or the first November episode due to some scheduling conflicts and personal news (that I can't talk about yet.) So instead of missing a week I decided to get some reviews up on some shows that I just finished watching this weekend. First off is two Marvel Netflix season in Daredevil Season 3 and Jessica Jones Season 2. I also throw in Supergirl Season 1 as I just finished that on my way to marathon all of the DC TV shows to get to the Batwoman cross over.

Before we had Marvel studios and the MCU there are often three movies credited with reviving the superhero movie genre. Blade, X-Men, and Spider-Man. Well did you know that there was almost a Venom movie in there and could have even released before Spider-Man? It took us until 2018 to finally get a Venom movie which has been very successful despite it's bad reviews, but what would a 1998 Venom movie have been like? I didn't plan on doing two Marvel movies in a row but sometimes that's just how it works.

Logline: When an alien symbiote bonds to his body, down on his luck Eddie Brock is now the one person standing between an alien invasion. That is if the symbiote doesn't take complete control.

Little Evil is a Netflix film that quickly caught my attention because of the cast. It features a lot of actors that I think are very funny or am a big fan of. I decided to throw it on for Shocktober and see if the movie lived up to the caliber.

"Gary, who has just married Samantha, the woman of his dreams, discovers that her six-year-old son may be the Antichrist."

Written and Directed By: Eli Craig

While Elle has credits spanning many films and shorts (Including Machete Kills and From Dusk Till Dawn The Series) she will be appearing in Alita: Battle Angel set to release on February 14th, 2019.

We also talked about the difference between working in film between Texas and LA.

This is a movie that I have been dying to see since it's first trailer. It had always eluded me until it recently popped up on Netflix. I know a lot of people were put off by the accurate 1600's way of speaking, but does this movie live up to the hype?

"A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession."

I am a fairly casual manga fan and while I was always interested in Death Note, I never actually got around to reading it. Since the movie dropped on Netflix I always saw it as maybe a gateway into the source material. Well after the movie I started reading the books, but what does that say about the film?

"A high school student named Light Turner discovers a mysterious notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written within its pages, and launches a secret crusade to rid the world of criminals."

I swear I didn't watch this many Stephen King movies on purpose! This was actually the first film I watched of the season and it just got pushed down the line of reviews. Based on what is known as King's magnum opus, does the movie live up to the book series?

"The last Gunslinger: Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, and determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower that holds the universe together. With the fate of the world at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle, as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black."

Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel

Written By: Akiva Goldsman & Nikolaj Arcel & Jeff Pinkner

I will pretty much watch any movie starring Ryan Reynolds, so when I saw that he was doing a horror comedy I knew I wanted to check it out. Alas it was given a limited release and never crossed my path until it recently popped up on Netflix. It was finally my chance to give The Voices a shot!

"A likable guy pursues his office crush with the help of his evil talking pets, but things turn sinister when she stands him up for a date."

Directed by: Marjane Satrapi

It's the second day of Shocktober and we are looking at another Stephen King Netflix movie, Gerald's Game.

Well it's that time of year again. The time where we can watch a horror movie every day and not be considered crazy. We start of this years Shocktober marathon with a Stephen King adaptation on Netflix. 1922.

"A simple yet proud farmer in the year 1922 conspires to murder his wife for financial gain, convincing his teenage son to assist. But their actions have unintended consequences."

Before there was a Marvel Cinematic Universe that launched with 2008's Iron Man, there was almost a different Iron Man there was almost a different Iron Man. It's hard to imagine a version of Iron Man without Robert Downey Jr. but it's a reality we almost could have had. This version of the story differs quite a lot from the version we know today, but would it have made a good movie? Would we have gotten an Avengers movie with a Toby Maguire Spider-Man? Probably not but it's still fun to imagine.

Written By: Alfred Gough & Miles Millar & David Hayter

Logline: The origin story of Marvel's Avenger Iron Man! When Tony Stark realizes his tech is being stolen and used to create illegal weapons he must navigate the world of conspiracy to get to the bottom of this treachery. He might also need a new weapon of his own.

Well we've all seen the Daredevil to the Defenders by this point I'm sure. Well Marvel recently dropped their Season 2 of Iron Fist onto Netflix, and while the first season was of varying degrees of low quality, I still felt compelled to marathon my way through Season 2. What follows is my SPOILER FREE review of Netflix's Marvel's Iron Fist.

Well it had been brought to my attention that the first episode had become unavailable. While I'm busy working on some stuff behind the scenes I thought I would take this opportunity to repost the original episode so anyone who has missed it will have a chance to give it a listen. Just a note this version of the episode has the same amature audio editing as the original post so just be warned. I've come a long way since then.

Written By: Frank Miller

I remember when the movie Gladiator first came out. It was a sight to behold. There were no movies of it's kind at the time. The sheer violence alone made it stand out, and beneath all of the blood and be-headings was a story of a broken man who wanted to avenge his family. It was a perfect movie. Would you believe me if I told you that there exists a script for a sequel? Now I know what you're thinking. Maximus died at the end. Well, how does this script address that? Let's find out.

Written By: Nick Cave

Logline: After Maximus awakens in the afterlife, he sets out on a quest of the gods to destroy a rogue deity and be reunited with his family.

Prometheus is one of my favorite sci-fi films in the last ten years. It's a movie I love more and more with each viewing, and is just a spectacle to behold. Naturally I was excited for the follow up, Alien Covenant. Unfortunately Covenant didn't live up to my expectations. While I enjoyed the film enough, it was full of nitpick inconsistencies and just didn't feel like the true sequel I wanted. Well after the movie released I heard rumors of an earlier script and changes made to the movie. I was dying to get my hands on the script. After almost a year of searching I finally found it! So did the original script give me more of what I wanted?

Written By: John Logan

Logline: The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape.

Ever since the Justice League movie released it's been in the back of my mind. I found the movie an extreme disappointment and I have just been pondering the future of the DCEU ever since. Instead of dwelling on the movie, I decided to get all of my thoughts out with a giant blog post on an old blog of mine. Instead of sending everyone over to my dead blog, but while still wanting to share my thoughts on the film franchise, I decided to just read the blog on the show! This is my in depth analysis of the DCEU and how it all culminated in Justice League.
