So, have you seen Phone Booth? Yes? Well, compare and contrast the movie with the November 15, 2002 draft script (Thanks Movie Page and Anonymous). Also, Max has his review. I haven't seen Phone Booth, yet. I try and save my "go to a movie" points for big stuff. Last movie I saw in a theatre was, Piglet's Big Movie. Last movie I saw in a theatre where the average age of the movie goers was above 6 was Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Kinda hard to get to the theatre when you've been blacklisted by every baby sitter within a 30 mile radius.
Green Wasabi has put the word out to me on several scripts like, Arac Attack - July 2000 Draft script - from: Daily Script - It was later renamed, Eight Legged Freaks. I guess American President Bush didn't want to hint at his invasion plans too soon.
Spayad came back from the 'dead' to alert me to Batman: The Frightening (Batman 5) - script (unproduced) - from: Batman On Film. This is suppose to be "...the original spec script to Batman: The Frightening...from which Christopher "Memento, Following" Nolan [and David "Arcade, Blade, Blade II" Goyer] are developing their ideas."
For those of you from over the pond, you might enjoy Only Fools and Horses. It was a hugely successful British comedy
Quick reviews - Brotherhood of the Wolf - French flick. Like "The Matrix happened during the French Revolution". Period piece out of France. Excellent fight scenes, mystery, suspense, some nudity. Trust me, don't watch the dubbed version. I watched the first half hour dubbed in English. It sounded stupid. My wife comes in. Insists on watching it in French with sub-titles. Whoa! Whole different movie. And, émilie Dequenne and Monica (gonna be in Matrix Reloaded) Bellucci are such babes. (and go to Filmforce's article of "Women of Brotherhood of the Wolf" for more pics. That is where I copped these two from). Plot in short - In 18th century France, the Chevalier de Fronsac and his native American friend Mani are sent by the King to the Gevaudan province to investigate the killings of hundreds by a mysterious beast.
