Idiocracy DVD to be relased Jan 9 - post author Don

buy Mike Judge's Idiocracy on DVD now!The newest Mike Judge comedy (Mike Judge is one of the creative minds behind Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill and Office Space), Idiocracy will be available on DVD January 9th.

This film was buried by Fox who only released the film theatrically in very few cities. The film is about Private Joe Bowers, the definition of “average American”, selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he’s easily the most intelligent person alive.

There is an excellent script review over at The Deadbolt. I know this script was on the ‘net back in September. However, the links no longer work. If anyone has seen it on the ‘net, let me know where it is.

Update: Thanks “IS”

Mohsen Makhmalbaf movie scripts - post author Don

Mohsen Makhmalbaf Thanks to Rusell, who, in one fell swoop, doubled the size of the Foreign Language Scripts database with a huge collection of scripts by the Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf. Mohsen Makhmalbaf has published on Makhmalbaf Film House a number of scripts in both English and Persian.

I’ve put together a Mohsen Makhmalbaf Movie Scripts Page showcasing all his scripts that have been translated into English with additional information about Makhmalbaf himself as well as his movies. Please do let me know if I have anything in error.

For those of you who can read Persian, please visit the Foreign Language Scripts page where you will find scripts in not only Persian, but also German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish and one in Portugese. – Don

Smokin’ Aces script - post author Don

Thanks to JBM for the heads up on this one.

Smokin’ Joe Carnahan is my new hero. It is so rare for a writer/director to put their work out on the ‘net. Thanks to Smokin’ Joe Carnahan you can read this early draft of Smokin’ Aces. According to Carnahan’s blog, the draft made available represents, in Joe’s words, “The script I submitted to Universal, which really represents the version they greenlit. Lot of changes in the final film, including the ending (although we did shoot the scripted ending, it goes to that wonderful orphanage known as the DVD deleted scenes section, to be claimed by its loving parent later) and other misc twists and turns.”

Smokin’ Aces comes out January 26th. This is on my must see list since we got Jeremy Piven playing a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch who decides to turn state’s evidence and testify against the mob. We got Ray Liotta, Ben Affleck, Justin Batemen and Alicia Keys trying to either kill him or keep him alive. We got a lot of violence from the guy who brought you “Narc”. Check out the trailer, then check out the script on the Movie Scripts page. – Don

A Good Year Screenplay - post author Don

This is the way to start the new year! Thanks to “No One” and Daily Script read this draft of Marc Klein’s screenplay to Peter Mayle’s Book, A Good Year wherein a British investment broker inherits his uncle’s chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. He discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he tries to renovate the estate to be sold. Go to the Movie Scripts page to see how it turns out.

I believe this is still on the big screen, so you still have a chance to see Ridley Scott’s work. – Don

update: Dailyscript and “Donovan late of FMA” both point out that there are, in fact, two different drafts of A Good Year – one would be an early draft dated April, 2005 and the other would be a September, 2005 revised draft. “Donovan late of FMA” writes, Just letting you know, what you have online isn’t two halves of the same screenplay, it’s two (complete) drafts of the same screenplay. “Part One” is an early draft of A Good Year, while “Part Two” is some sort of revised production draft. But they’re both around 120 pages. I can understand you not opening the files to check anyway, it’s a boring film.

Donovan is right, I hadn’t opened the second one, yet. I’m still making may way through the first file. Thus far, I’ve found it charming and I’m still inclined to see this film even for nothing more than views of Provence and wine making. – Don
