1-18-08



Is it a lion!? Cthulhu? Mutated squid? An alien? And what does Slusho have to do with all of this? The Cloverfield hype machine has really been working overtime on the internets. In the past, net hype hasn’t translated into big box office. Maybe J.J. Abrams has found the winning formula, cause there hasn’t been a good monster-destroys-a-city flick in ages. Those "Godzilla" and "King Kong" remakes didn’t do squat for me. I came across an insightful article on the viral marketing campaign here.

Gone



Television just became a little less interesting... “The 4400” (and “The Dead Zone”) got axed this week and the series finale of “Journeyman” aired on Wednesday. Both shows (never got into “Dead Zone”) were fun rides with obvious appeals -- note to Moon Bloodgood: no more time travel shows! -- and are probably headed for the Sci-Fi Channel’s weekday marathons. “Heroes” sophmore slump and the plummeting ratings of the once skyhigh “Bionic Woman” didn’t exactly inspire confidence in genre tv. In other news today, still fleshing out my outline for that “Supernatural” spec.

One Missed Call



That freaky poster certainly gets your attention... I still say the J-Horror craze is over but Hollywood loves to remake a dead horse. Basically, “One Missed Call” is kind of like “The Ring” but instead of a cursed videotape, you get cursed cell phone calls from your future dead self. Looks like it should catch on with the teens and the creepy ring tone will be popular. As far as the original goes, I got bored halfway through... which happens a lot...

Turistas Go Home!

turistas

I had very little interest in seeing “Turistas”, much less writing a post about it, but I happened to catch it on cable the other night and just had to share. This “organ harvester” flick was an incredibly lame attempt by Fox Atomic to jump on the “Hostel” and “Saw” torture pornfest bandwagon, even though the stars of the film (Melissa George is gonna have a hard time suckering me into watching another one of her films) insisted otherwise, claiming that it’s more of a thriller. Well, it didn’t deliver in that department either! I didn’t care who lived or died. And I’m sure gorehounds were disappointed. Yeah, there’s the big “operation” scene but it’s mostly beautiful people making incredibly stupid decisions and then dying as a result. All the big, bad Brazilian villain lacked was a long mustache to twirl as he delivered his evil lines. Good concept but poorly executed. Gives me a couple of ideas though...

Scary...



“I Am Legend” pulled in 28 million on Friday and could hit 75-80 million for the weekend. Guess that’ll teach me to underestimate the power of Will Smith.

In other, not-so-earth-shattering news, my Creature Feature's progress bar has creeped up a few ticks...

Bad Girls

Last week’s “Tin Min” mini-series got me thinking about memorable female sci-fi/horror antagonists in movies. Here’s a quick and dirty list (in no particular order):

1. Alien Queen
2. Sil (Species)
3. Pamela Voorhies
4. Catwoman (Batman Returns)
5. Annie Wilkes (Misery)
6. Mystique
7. The Borg Queen
8. Wicked Witch of the West
9. Samara (The Ring)

There are so many wicked step-mothers, witches and vengeful spirits in folklore, fairy tales and various mythologies that it’s surprising we don’t see more of them in feature films. Genre television on the other hand, is full of great female villains -- Diana from the “V” mini-series in the 80s, Six (Battlestar Galactica), Irina Derevko (Alias), Druscilla/Darla/Dark Willow from the Buffyverse, Mama Patrelli (Heroes), etc. Not sure why that is... less about star power and more about the concept?

The Happening

The Happening

The one sheet for M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Happening” is finally out. Meh. Can’t say I’m especially excited about seeing this if it’s anything like the early draft that was floating around the net a while back. Still a fan though...

Life Support



Nice to see NBC showing some love to “Life” this week. A brand new episode comes on after tonight’s “Heroes” finale *yawn* and another in its usual time slot, Wednesdays @ 10pm. The quirky drama about a wrongfully convicted cop, now back on the job and trying to figure out who framed him; is probably one of the few silver linings when it comes to the writer’s strike. The network was forced to stick with it and the so-so ratings have picked up a bit. Each week, “Life” offers an intriguing piece of the conspiracy puzzle and a solid whodunit. Last week’s episode involving the abducted teen featured some stellar writing, especially that last scene, the exchange in the helicopter between Crews and the kid. If you haven’t already, check it out.

Tin Man pt. 1



Welcome to the O-Z, bitch! It’s never a good sign when I doze off in the middle of a movie... I’ll catch up on D.G. and her crew tonight. From what my fuzzy memory can recall, “Tin Man” was okay. Probably a little too ambitious for its own good, especially with a 19 million dollar budget. There was a lot of hit and miss with the special effects. The cyclone was pretty cool, the spidery monsters in the forest were lame, but the flying monkey was well done.
I was surprised by the number of sci-fi elements in a traditional fantasy story: androids (why isn’t the Tin-man an android?), holograms, stasis chambers, etc. I guess to make the story more “adult”. Hard to say if it helped, they almost crossed over into campy “Flash Gordon” territory (the movie *and* the show). Maybe’s there’s a fairy tale or two in the public domain that I could re-imagine. By the way, the wicked witch aka Azkadellia is too hot. Seriously. More hot than evil. And what was up with her metallic bustier and tats? She looked more like an extra from the “Underworld” movies than an evil sorceress.

Some other stuff, started an outline for a “Supernatural” spec. Hopefully, I’ll get around to writing it while the idea is still fresh in my head.

30 Days of Night



I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early draft of the script before seeing the film and while I thought it was lacking in certain areas, the premise was probably cool enough ride out the bumps in the story. BZZZZT! Nope. Didn’t happen. The red flags in the script waved just as brightly as they did in the movie.
Basically, what we have here is a zombie flick disguised as a vampire movie. Feral vampires. Okay. They don’t wear puffy shirts, nor do they seduce their victims with hypnosis or the promise of immortality. They’re all about the kill. Nothing wrong with that but if the vamps are just catalysts in the story, atleast gives us three dimensional characters that the audience will love/hate/feel something about and this is where “30 Days of Night” fails. I almost wish they took a page from some of the character development that occurred in “The Mist”.
The film hinges on the fact that we’re supposed to buy into this barely developed relationship between Eben (Josh Hartnett) and Stella (Melissa George), a lot of which is unsaid so we’re treated to seeing them exchange pained expressions and muttering something about her leaving town. Maybe it just was a lack of chemistry between the two leads (Harnett is so wooden, he might have tried impaling himself into a vamp or two) or weak character development, but the relationship and therefore the movie didn’t work for me.
I haven’t picked up a graphic novel in years, so I’m totally ignorant of the source material but I’ll say this much: why vampires? Why not zombies, aliens (sounds like John Singleton’s “Executive Order Six” is gonna cover that one) or little monsters that multiply when they get wet and eat after midnight? Seemed kind of random.

1408



Finally watched “1408” last week. It doesn’t take a genius to point out that a lot of Stephen King’s work is hit or miss on the silver screen. This one hits more than it misses. He was on “Nightline” last week, drumming up interest for “The Mist” -- which opened today. Anyway, he said something to the effect that it’s not about the monsters, it’s what the monsters to do people, what it brings out in them. You can see that in “1408”, Cusack’s character is literally being haunted by his own demons... wasn’t too crazy about the ending but that’s just me. Although “The Mist” is one of my favorites from “Skeleton Crew”, I’m just not that excited in seeing it as a big screen adaptation. The trailer screams “RENTAL” to me...

Beowulf

angelina jolie
A 28 million dollar opening weekend is certainly nothing to sneeze at but a lot of folks were expecting “300” type numbers. Don’t know what went wrong. A digital, semi-nude Angelina Jolie isn’t good enough for atleast 40 million? Maybe the PG-13 rating turned off a few. It’s gonna be awful hard to break even with that 150 million dollar budget. I guess flesh and blood actors still have a place in Hollywood.

The Return



Guess that poster for “The Eye” wasn’t so original after all. Speaking of originality, “The Return” sticks its head in the sand, ignoring countless films that have gone down this well-traveled path and pretends to be fresh. Girl haunted all her life by something she can’t quite understand, visits (“Returns” -- get it?) a place she saw in a waking dream, mild terror ensues. The scariest thing about this flick is the poster. Darker than your typical Lifetime movie but not by much.

Eye Candy


It’s probably gonna be lame but that poster is definately an eye-catcher (rimshot!)

Got a jump on some New Year’s resolutions, started on a creature feature a few days ago. One of those low budget, minimal location stories that the Sci-Fi Channel just can’t seem to get enough of. Low budget scripts have always been a challenge for me. No matter how hard I try, a big explosion, stunt or special effect will manage to creep its way into the pages. I totally get that less is more but writing a script while the Budget Fairy hovers over my shoulder tends to wreck my flow.

At some point, I’ll be updating my progress bars of shame.

BTW, be still my heart! Two decent episodes of “Heroes”... in a row!

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Yet another “Underworld” movie is in the works. Instead of latex clad vixen Kate Beckinsale, we get the lovely Rhona Mitra -- perhaps in chain mail? This time it’s a prequel. As much as I thought “Underworld Evolution” was just a dumb chase movie, the franchise still has some life but a period piece?

Speaking of werewolves, I haven’t posted one of my script updates in quite a while. Not stuck, just tired of saying, ‘almost there.’ I don’t want to be *that guy*. You know, spending more time talking about a project than actually working on it. Overall, I don’t think I accomplished a whole lot this year. Fear of failure, fear of success, whatever you want to call it, I didn’t get the job done. Time to step my game up and be more consistent.

Hood of Horror


I must have caught a contact high from watching the trailer because I really should’ve known better. The only good thing about of this horror anthology is the above average cast: Jason Alexander -- sporting a British accent, Billy Dee Williams, Ernie Hudson from “Ghostbusters”, Danny Trejo and Sydney Tamiia Poitier from “Grindhouse” just to name a few. Snoop is fine as our demonic-gangsta host and there’s a slick-looking anime at the begining but everything goes downhill from there. The three -- borderline four -- gory tales of greed and revenge just weren’t that interesting to me. More than anything, the film illustrates how difficult it is to come up with a good concept for a short and sustain it for 15-20 minutes.

I AM LEGEND

Will Smith

Speaking of Will Smith, the "I Am Legend" site is up...

Saturday, October 20, 2007

Toothless

I’m surprised “30 Days of Night” made only 6 million on Friday. It probably won’t crack 20 million for the weekend. When you consider that Halloween is right around the corner and the huge marketing push, its box office is pretty darn disappointing. The mixed reviews probably didn’t help matters but most horror flicks are critic proof. I guess horror fans just aren’t interested in a new incarnation of the vampire. This doesn't bode well for Will Smith’s “I Am Legend”.

Interactive



I love mysteries. The Bermuda Triangle. Stonehenge. A “House on Haunted Hill” sequel... Seriously, what seems like your standard direct to video fare might be the future of interactive entertainment. The HD/BD version allows you to branch the story down different paths: pick who lives and who dies, who gets a gory death, etc. The disc boasts something like 39 alternate endings -- I have enough trouble coming up with one. It’ll be interesting to see how this sells.

Moonlight

Instead of giving a knee-jerk reaction to the pilot, I decided to wait a few episodes... so I waited... and waited... well, it sure ain’t “Angel” or “Forever Night” for that matter. “Moonlight” really doesn’t aspire to be those shows, it just wants to be a nice supernatural romance for the post “Ghost Whisperer” audience and it almost succedes. The cast is likeable, the leads have decent chemistry and -- oh, who am I kidding!? THIS SHOW IS LAME! Cheesy special effects -- vampire contact lenses? Shannyn Sossamon? Cliched stories. Shannyn Sossamon? Is this the best you could come up with Joel Silver? It’s also hard to believe that “Angel” co-creator David Greenwalt was briefly involved with this project. Vamps can walk around during the day because sunlight only makes them weak. Crosses and garlic don’t work but they like to sleep in the nude, inside freezers? A stake to the heart doesn’t kill, it only paralyzes. Everyone has a right to put their unique spin on the genre but these seem so... dumb. How about changing the dynamic a bit, female vampire and mortal reporter? Pulling any random script out of the slush pile couldn’t have resulted in a less original concept but the ratings have been decent (skews a much older audience than the network expected, especially after all the cast changes) so what do I know?

Heroes 10/8

Claire’s Dad has been hiding stuff, Peter is trying to figure out his powers, Nikki is about to do something bad, Hiro has an important mission to complete, someone from “Star Trek” joins the cast and Sylar is busy killing folks. Am I in a time warp to 2006 or didn’t we go down this road last season? I don’t mind the piecemeal storytelling but it seems like there’s been way too much rehash. What’s also interesting is how the show appears to follow the same structure as last season: everyone is dispersed, they’ll eventually come together by fate/coincidence to thwart some looming threat -- which hasn’t been established yet. We’ll see if it works a second time around...

Pushing Daisies


I’m shocked a show this quirky got past the gatekeepers. Can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard at people dropping dead. Really dug the whimsical Tim Burtonesque vibe with some "Wonderfalls" and "Dead Like Me" sprinkled in. Even more shocking news, “Pushing Daisies” won its time slot last night. It’ll be interesting to see if audiences come back for a second helping.

Bionic Woman

Reminded me of that “Night Stalker” re-imagining a few seasons back, and we all know how that turned out. Sure, it might have worked for “Battlestar Galactica” but does every classic series have to come back dark, edgy and humorless? Felt like they were trying to cram way too much into what should have been a two parter. No real time spent developing the protagonist or the transition from amputee to cyborg. No cool montages of treadmill running and strength tests. No Oscar Goldman but they stick us with a brat kid sister?
A lot of stuff happened for no rhyme or reason. My girlfriend is badly hurt in a hit and run? No problemo! I’ll just whisk her to the super secret facility where I work, perform high tech surgery on her (that turned the last chick into a psycho) and they’ll let me because I’m the boy genius. What’s that you say? They want to use her as a weapon? I’m shocked these shady government types would do such a thing! I know, I’ll help her escape the super secret facility that’s supposed to be so secure then I’ll convince them to leave her alone. Meanwhile... the bionic patient/prisoner is escaping! Shadowy Leader: Get her! Boy Genius: No! Shadowy Leader: Hmmm, you make a good point. We'll give her the illusion of freedom. Besides, we can always kill her if it doesn’t work out. Later... Jaime: After that rooftop catfight in the rain with that bionic hussy, who was kinda flirting with me, I felt a tingling. I think it means I want to work for you guys but on my own terms. Geez...

Premiere Week - Monday

“Chuck”

Got a decent amount of positive reviews. Meh. Seems like “Jake 3.0” but I can think of worse ways to spend Monday nights at 8pm. It is good to see Tony Todd and Adam Baldwin working. Sarah Lancaster alone bamboozled me into watching a couple episodes of *cough* “What About Brian?” *cough* so I guess I’ll be sticking around for a while.


“Heroes”

A solid but mostly unspectacular season premiere. They’re laying down the foundation. Fine. I’ll be patient. My little bit of speculation on the Wonder Twins: Maya’s ability kicks in when she’s separated from Alejandro.


“Journeyman”

Has Moon Bloodgood cornered the market on time-traveling TV shows? I really wasn’t expecting much from what seemed like a rehash of “Quantum Leap” but I was pleasantly surprised halfway through. NBC obviously is confident enough to plant it on a piece of prime-time real estate, after “Heroes” (even though “The Bionic Woman” -- with all its rumored problems -- would make a hell of a lot more sense) but the grown-up stuff will bore the younger demographic.

Highlander: The Source

Alternate titles included:

“Highlander: Beating a dead horse”
“Highlander: Duncan MacLeod, you are the father!”
“Highlander: Hey, it can’t be any worse than Highlander 2!”

I’ll be eighty and they’ll still be churning out “Highlander” flicks. A B-movie franchise that just refuses to die -- mostly clinging to life support these days but still... In it’s heyday, there were “Gatherings” for fans, a long-running syndicated TV series and an official “Highlander” catalog where you could order sword replicas, jackets, key chains, etc. More recently, I remember reading an article about cops having to shoot some lunatic wielding a sword and claiming to be immortal. Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t. It'd be cool to write a script that takes on life of its own -- minus the lunatics.
The “Feast” co-writers were involved with this latest installment for a hot minute but I’m fuzzy on the details. A mystical quest, a magical guardian, post apocalyptic earth... I’d attempt to explain -- almost forgot to mention the cannibal bikers -- but none of it makes a lick of sense. I’m a sucker for 80’s “Sword and Sorcery” flicks (“Beastmaster” anyone?) so I sat through the whole thing. It’s no wonder they couldn’t get a theatrical release. Life support, folks. Here’s a quote from Adrian Paul, “Is it a good film? I’ll let you decide.” How's that for a ringing endorsement? There’s a “Russian” version floating around that’s slightly longer and supposedly more coherent. View at your own risk.

Big Bad Wolfman


Check out Benicio goofing off with Rick Baker (via aintitcool). I doubt they have the stones to go the minimal makeup route ala Spencer Tracy in “Jekyll and Hyde” but it’d be crazy enough to work. Who knows how audiences will react the classic look? My biggest issue is with the story as a period piece. Imagine the wolfman running around in a modern city -- wait, Jack Nicholson did that already in “Wolf”. Oh, well...

Saturday, September 15, 2007

Invisible Touch

It’s been awfully quiet around here. I’ve been busy hacking away at the werewolf spec -- in more ways than one. There’s just too much fat in the first half. Some of the supporting characters need to be reigned in.

The Grudge 2


J-horror is dead and so are American remakes of J-horror. One of the most unnecessary sequels ever. “The Grudge” was an entertaining little ghost story, but there just wasn’t enough material for a second film -- like that ever stopped Hollywood. Less inventive scares, a ton of cgi and a really pointless “twist” at the end. I’m a big fan of the PG-13 horror movie but it’s impossible to defend this one. “The Grudge 2” fits somewhere between “Underworld: Evolution” and “Blade Trinity” on my crappy sequel list.

Saturday, September 01, 2007

Nasty Boys



Absurd. Goofy. Ridiculous. Makes “The Craft” look like a Shakespearean masterpiece but it managed to open at the top of box office last year and after a decent run on DVD, a sequel is in the works. Sure, those facts could be interpreted as signs of an imminent apocalypse but why did “The Covenant” find an audience while “Blood and Chocolate” and “Skinwalkers” could not? Here’s my theory...
“The Covenant” has more of a comic book/anime aesthetic than the other two films(which makes sense because it is a comic book adaptation) and that really appeals to today’s audiences -- especially the younger ones. They grew up on stuff like “Dragon Ball Z”, “Akira”, “Street Fighter” and Kung Fu flicks. All that flying/leaping around, hurling energy blasts, wirework, striking a cool pose, powering up... it’s almost nostalgic for them. Ever notice how today’s action stars aren’t physically imposing, big gun-toting, tough guys like in the 80s and early 90s? Twenty years ago, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would have been a huge star. Nowadays, audiences flock to see the “everyman” action hero: physically fit, might have some martial arts ability but is distinguished by a mental toughness that borders on and sometimes crosses over into supernatural territory.

Perfect Creature



This one has been in the can since 2005 but don’t let that (or the ugly cover art) deter you. It’s set in one of those alternate universes where vampires are genetic anomalies and they’re the good guys! Sorta. Vamps are part of a religious order, the Brotherhood, who’ve been watching over man for the last 300 years. It’s all good until a Brother’s experiments to increase the Brotherhood’s dwindling numbers goes awry. He creates a virus that turns vamps and humans into murderous monsters. Throw in some forbidden lust between a Brother and a female cop, genetic experimentation, church cover-ups and you’ve got a pretty cool ride.
You could almost describe “Perfect Creature” as “Ultraviolet” with a brain. It also evokes comparisons to Kurt Wimmer’s first film, “Equilibrium”. Set in an “alternate” New Zealand and with just a 20 million budget, it’s not as slick as some recent films. Not a ton of action either. If I were a suit at the Sci-fi Channel, I’d be trying to develop this into a tv series; rather than trying to push FLASH! ARGGGGHH -- save us from the crappiness -- Gordon. It’s sci-fi but not enough to scare off the casual viewers they covet. There are some good ideas presented but the short running time (88 minutes) works against them. Still, it’s worth checking out if your a fan of the genre.

On the Lot Finale (pt. 2)

Good idea for a reality show that crashed and burned (especially the last two weeks). Sure, it ended on a note of extreme cheese but who wouldn't be giggling like a schoolgirl if Steven Spielberg said he's a fan of your work? Congrats to Will!

On The Lot Finale

Summing up the first 20 minutes...

What's up with the rockstar entrances for Will, Jason and Adam? I thought I was watching the MTV awards for a sec.

Another clip show featuring shorts from the castoffs?!!

Most uncomfortable question of the night (so far): Zach, are you surprised that you didn't make the final three?

Underworld Lite

“Blood and Chocolate” is the kind of film that disappoints all comers. Fans of the novel detest how certain story elements have been altered, romance fans don’t buy into the story (or the title) and horror fans are left wondering how they got duped into seeing yet another PG-13 werewolf flick.
It’s your basic story: boy meets girl, boy finds out girl can turn into a wolf, boy kills member of girl’s pack in self-defense, boy and girl take turns saving each other until end credits. Forbidden-love stories need strong obstacles to keep the leads apart, just wasn’t there in this case. Audiences didn’t respond to the marketing and it tanked at the box office.
I’m left wondering if the genders of werewolf and human were reversed, would the film have been more successful? The irredeemable bad boy archetype is a lot older than the butt-kicking independent babe. It’s a staple of many a teen movie. Just something to consider...

OTL: Week 13

I would’ve written about Tuesday’s “On the Lot” earlier but what exactly can you say about a frickin’ clip show!? Maybe I should just cut and paste previous entries. The final three seem like nice enough dudes, equally talented but we didn’t need to drag this out another week. I am curious if Spielberg will show up for the finale. Hmmm, “On the Lot” or “Indy 4”. Decisions, decisions...

Saturday, August 11, 2007

All bark...

“Skinwalkers” made $175,000 on Friday. If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of the final nail being hammered into the werewolf movie coffin (that faint sobbing is me clutching my spec). After disasters like “Cursed” and “Blood and Chocolate”, the genre was already on life support but this probably sealed its fate.
What the “Underworld” and “Van Helsing” movies taught us is that werewolves are much better as second bananas rather than leads. Vampires are cool and sexy. Werewolves are dirty and mangy. What zombies lack in decaying charm, they make up for it with their vast numbers.

Werewolves used to be high on the terror inducing pyramid but they’ve seriously slipped. It’s not enough to be a hairy killing machine anymore.
The villain capable of the most horrific acts on screen has a human face. Much scarier than a guy in a suit.

Vampires have adapted, learned martial arts and with their cool clothes and regal homes, they’re almost interchangeable with the current crop of comic book action heroes. Maybe that’s a path to consider.

Next year’s “Wolfman” remake might have a chance to revive the genre but I have my doubts. I think we (me) need to rethink what a werewolf means to today’s audiences. Too much of it seems to hinge on creature effects and gore.

Thursday, August 09, 2007

Shiny!

As much as I enjoyed “Firefly”, I didn’t have a whole lot of love for “Serenity”. I mean, it was okay and all, just didn’t grab me. Great characters, not so great story. For a while, I’ve been on the fence about purchasing the upcoming collector’s edition DVD but now that the screenplay has found its way online, maybe a quick read might win me over. Have no idea when I’ll get around to it though. I still haven’t finished reading “Disturbia” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” -- which I should really pick up on DVD. Maybe that’ll be my mission this weekend.

And speaking of DVDs, the third season of “Doctor Who”is going to be available for ninety-freakin-nine dollars?! Thirteen episodes for ninety-nine bucks? It’s geek blackmail! Unless one of the DVD special features is to have Freema Agyeman show up and provide live commentary while simultaneously giving me a backrub, it ain’t gonna happen.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007

OTL: Week 12?

Well, Zach finally got the boot. I can’t say that I was surprised. A sequel to a lukewarm short just wasn’t a good idea. Still, he had the best track record and the most potential out of all the "On the Lot" contestants. We haven’t seen the last of this guy. Even without Zach, last night wasn’t a disaster. America’s logline really brought out the creativity. I really liked Will’s “The Yes Men” and Jason’s “Oh, Boy!”.

Weekend Stuff

10 o’clock on a Saturday night seems like an awful time slot to premiere a tv series -- unless you’re dumping it. Can’t say that I was enthralled by “Masters of Science Fiction” for any length amount of time. Felt like a radio play with some sci-fi sprinkled on top. I’ll give it a couple more episodes though.

The “Fallen” mini-series on ABC Family was pretty decent. Good special effects. A lot more “intense violence” and deaths than you’d expect to see on a family oriented channel. The final hour dragged a bit. Who couldn’t see the reveal about his dad a mile away?

Sexy Beasts



The folks behind “Skinwalkers” really mean it this time. Gearing up for the August 10th release, they’ve *finally* updated the official website. Sitting on the shelf for over a year is rarely a good sign but I am rooting for it.

The commercials aren’t exactly forthcoming when it comes to story details. They’re burying the whole “protect the kid” plot with shots of wannabe biker/werewolf dudes strolling around and quick cuts of chicks about to transform -- or was that a dream sequence? Big mistake not to feature Rhona Mitra. Bigger mistake to show the werewolves in action. Makes it look they’ve got something to hide... like a bad movie.

Natassia Malthe in werewolf form is decidedly different from most of the stuff we’ve seen in recent years -- maybe the look was inspired by Ron Perlman’s Vincent from the old “Beauty and the Beast” TV series? The costume lends itself to do some cool wire-fu stunts but I don’t think the film makers went that route.

So I’m in the home stretch of my own werewolf spec. Still have to fix a ton of scenes, but it looks like I’m done with major revisions. I have no clue when I’ll be finished/satisfied, could be a few more weeks could be a month, we’ll see.

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

OTL: Week 10

I completely forgot to do a recap of last week’s “On the Lot”. Frankly, there really wasn’t a whole lot to say, Carrie Fisher’s behavior was way more interesting than the shorts. What was up with the fake makeout sessions with the other judges?

As much as I like his stuff, I think Zack could be a goner tonight because the subpar “The Bonus Feature”. Just wasn’t much of a romantic comedy. Hopefully, he has enough of a following. Sam (“American Hoe”) might be sent packing as well.

Is J-Horror dead?

While watching “Purei”, I couldn’t shake this eerie feeling that a flock of vultures were somewhere behind me, calmly nestled in the shadows. Their ravenous eyes fixed on the television screen, waiting for the end credits to roll so they could swoop down and feast on a film that was dead on arrival -- been doing a little work on my imagery...

I usually gush over Asia Extreme’s movies but this is gonna be the exception. It starts out well enough, kidnappers snatch a little girl on her way home from school. When they ring up her folks, looking for a ransom, the girl’s parents inform them that their daughter died a year ago. Spooky pause. Not bad, right? Unbelievably, it manages goes downhill from there. Fast.

A really short movie filled with easily recognizable J-horror cliches: creepy little girls, pointless plot twists, flashbacks, dumb coincidences, and abandoned buildings. Made me start to wonder if the genre is dead. Most of the films I’ve seen this year haven’t been very good. Odd, sure but mostly forgettable. I pretty much think J-horror remakes are dead. After multiple attempts, I still haven’t managed to sit through “Pulse”. And I can’t imagine “The Eye” with Jessica Alba being any good.

OTL: Week 9

The final two female contestants got the boot. No surprises there. I was never a big fan of Hilary’s work but she does have talent. Maybe she’s better suited for sitcoms. Shalani seems interested in telling small, intimate stories rather than the fluffy and buttery popcorn fare that the masses gobble up cough*Transformers*cough*. Out of the all last night’s shorts, I really liked Jason’s “Sweet” and Mateen’s “Catch”. Their films stood out because they used action to flesh out the characters.

Bloody Hell!



Dust off those vampire screenplays ‘cause it looks like suckheads are hot again! Torture porn's appeal is finally starting to wane. "Captivity" made a measly 1.4 million in its opening weekend. And last month, "Hostel 2" seriously underperformed. Hey, Eli Roth. You can't blame it all on piracy. Stephen King's "1408" is doing just fine.

Anyway, “30 Days of Night” hits theaters in October and further down the road, Alex Proyas is set to helm “Dracula: Year Zero”. Ernest Dickerson is going to direct “The Undead”. It’s the first official sequel to Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and was approved by the Stoker Estate. Plus, Monica Bellucci is going to be in it. Need I say more?

Been quiet the last couple of days, hovering around page 80 of the werewolf spec. Slow and steady as she goes. Well, mostly slow. Watched a bit of “Supergator” in all its cheesy Sci-Fi Channel glory. I think I stumbled on to a pretty good idea for a monster-of-the-week movie. Will have to start making notes for that.

Thank God for new episodes of “Dr. Who”, “Eureka” and “The 4400” or else I’d be getting caught up in stuff like the “Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament” on ESPN 2.

BTW, "Burn Notice" aint half bad either.

OTL: Week 8

Monday’s episode was pretty meh, which is probably the reason I’m writing about it two days after the fact. Even Zach’s “Time Upon A Once” was a little dull. I don’t think I can muster the effort to comment on the other shorts except to say they were just okay.

Black Sheep


One of the funniest trailers you’ll ever see. Genetically altered sheep running amok. Not in the same league as “Shaun of the Dead” but similar structure -- even copies a scene or two. For the longest time, I couldn’t put my finger on why I didn’t enjoy the film more. I mean, the special effects are pretty good, lots of over the top action/gore, funny bits of dialogue... and then it hit me: passive protagonist. The sheep attack, he barely escapes. The sheep attack again, he barely escapes again. And so on, and so on. Makes the movie seem more like a bunch of short skits sewn together and less like a cohesive story. In “Shaun”, the protagonist was constantly making choices. Sure, they were dimwitted choices, but choices nonetheless.

On the Lot: Week 7

“Nerve Endings” had the most votes last week?? I don’t get you America.

I was a little disappointed that a lot of the films relied on gore and special effects, instead of building suspense. Most of the endings/twists were pretty ineffective...

“The Malibu Myth” - zombies blogging. Funny. Tatyana Ali two weeks in a row?! And the guy who used to be the kid on “Kate and Allie”! It must truly suck to be a former child star. The tag saved a predictable story. Probably would’ve worked better at night.

“Ankle-biter” - the judges liked this and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. The Rod Serling-like voice over didn’t add a heck of a whole lot and there’s no payoff. The monster attacks the boy. The cops show up and the monster is waiting under the table. Yeah, so?

“Midnight Snack” - at least the monsters looked cool. Lame payoff. She’s a monster too? Why is she making sandwiches?

“Eternal Waters” - well shot, but once the burglar showed up, you could see the ending a mile away.

“Open House” - who would play musical chairs with a ghost? Made no sense and wasn’t remotely scary.

“Profile” - Dear Mateen, vampires and werewolves are fantasy but they can also be powerful metaphors. You decided to pooh-pooh all that and beat us over the head with an incoherent message. I think you’re outta here.

Spider Forest


The Sundance Channel is running it tonight at midnight as part of their Asia Extreme series. It’s kind of like “Memento” meets “The Sixth Sense”. The victim of a hit and run is somehow connected to a double-murder that took place near a supposedly haunted forest. “Spider Forest” has one of those trippy twist endings that messes with your head but in a good way.

OTL: Week 6

They didn’t make last week’s contestants squirm in their director’s chairs for the hour. Quick and painless elimination. No real surprise here. Jessica and her “horror” movie from the “P.O.V. of a tree” were sent packing. By tomorrow, I’ll remember Adrianna Costa’s legs more than the shorts so while they’re still fresh in my mind....

“Dr. In-Law” - funny. Not a gut buster but solid. For someone who’s supposedly scared of directing comedy, I thought Shalani was more than fine.

“Nerve Endings” - nice bit of dark humor. Effective.

“Discovering the Wheels” - didn’t make a whole lot of sense, no real payoff but a few good jokes here and there.

“Under the Gun” - Probably Hilary’s best short, but that’s not saying a whole heck of a lot. America, please send her home.

“How to have a girl” - Meh. Probably was funnier on paper.

“Die Hardly Working” - just give Zach the million already. He kicked butt this week without using special effects.

Next week: horror films!

Wunderbar!



For some strange reason, I get a ton of visitors from Germany. Maybe I’ve got a certain European sensibility to my writing that they can’t get enough of... or maybe they’re just looking for pics of uber babe Jill Wagner from “Blade: The Series”. Heads up to my German readers, “Blade: House of Chthon” hits the streets in September! It’s just an 83 minute, uncut episode but I’m guessing it’ll have amped up gore and nudity. There’s a commentary track that includes David Goyer, might be worth checking out, if I can get it on the cheap.

On another note, I suck. I’m nearing the third anniversary of this blog and I’m way behind my preset goals. I was supposed to be hanging out with the beautiful people at this point -- or at least be in leering proximity. Started off the year on the wrong foot and my productivity has been off ever since. Things aren’t totally awful. Worse case scenario is that the werewolf spec is the only thing I finish in ‘07. I do feel good about the screenplay. I just *really* want to be done with it because it’s taking for-freaking-ever to finish. Did some digging around for some help on writing action scenes. This oldie but goodie article was pretty useful:

The rhetoric of action

Got some simplified, low budget script ideas that I want to implement before the year is up. Try as I might, the Zombie spec just ain’t low budget. Don’t want to get sidetracked either. Must. Resist. Urge. To write “Supernatural” spec. What!? I might have ripped it once or twice, but this season wasn’t that bad -- except for the no frills werewolf episode.

OTL: Week 5

Why waste Wes Craven last night when you’re eventually going to do some horror shorts? Who’s gonna be the guest judge that night, Judd Apatow?

“Glass Eye” - Dragged on a bit. Who didn’t know the dog was going to swallow the eye? Interesting shots, well put together.

“Blood Born” - The shaky cam stuff got on my nerves a few times. The actors were a little off in their delivery but I loved the concept.

“Sunshine Girl” - This competition is Zach’s to lose. Great special effects that didn’t overshadow the simple story. He could have been a little more creative with the shots of the girl looking under the bed, made it more scary.

“Lost” - A talking head scene. Good dialogue. Boring visuals. Not a good calling card for a director.

“The Orchard” - Awful. Excruciating to watch. Worst short of the series.

OTL: Week 4

The only suspense surrounding this show is how much longer it’ll stay on the air and who Adrianna will hook up with when it’s over, although her plunging neckline might have snagged a couple extra channel surfers tonight. Anyways, on to the films...

“Polish” - seemed a little too long to me. Good set up, decent payoff.

“Love at First Shot” - pleasant but predictable.

“Beeline” - I thought Shira-Lee’s kid was an awful actor. Good execution, so-so story.

“Dance with the Devil” - A lot like his first film, very trailer-like. Marty is too slick for his own good. Not exactly lacking in the confidence department either.

“Edge on the End” - looked like it belonged on Fuse or MTV. Well done, but I could do without all the angsty stuff and corpse hugging.

I’m gonna go with “Polish”, the best out of an average bunch. If there ever is a second season, how about having the directors shoot films based on the same script? Let the directors direct and bring in some writers to write for them. Sounds crazy enough to work. BTW, can't believe Hilary made the cut...

Next

What if “Groundhog’s Day” had been an action flick? You’d probably end up with “Next”. Read the script a few months back. Cool premise: a guy who can see a few minutes in the future, but the story itself is pretty under whelming. All Cris Johnson wants is a family cause he was a lonely orphan. He’s sterile but has visions of meeting a woman who will eventually bear his child. Meanwhile, terrorists are about to set off a bomb and this uptight government agent needs a remote viewer to help find them. Cris knows (sees) that if the government gets their hands on him, they’ll never let go. The cops want him for the murder of a guy -- who would’ve robbed a store and shot up a bunch of folks. Cris refuses to run because he’s waiting to meet *that* woman...um, yeah.
Cris has one of the strangest character motivations I’ve seen in what’s supposed to be a testosterone charged, explosion filled and stunts galore flick. The protag just wants to find Miss Right and settle down? Are you kidding me? A clumsy attempt to broaden the target audience? Straight-action flicks have gone the way of the dodo. Muscle-bound dudes with monosyllabic vocabularies and/or thick accents just don’t pack ‘em in like they used to. Audiences aren’t interested unless your protagonist has super powers, cool clothes, knows kung-fu or all of the above.
The script clocks in at a whopping 137 pages, but it’s actually a pretty breezy read. Lots of descriptive action sequences -- probably better than the stuff that ended up on screen. I will say that the third act is one huge cop out and leave it at that. Another head scratcher, Nick Cage does “Ghost Rider” earlier this year and it makes 200 million globally but “Next” can only muster 17 million in the States -- and that’s with hottie Jessica Biel as the female lead. Makes you wonder how much influence these stars really have on audiences.

I AM LEGEND



This is the real deal but I think prefer the fake one. If I didn’t know anything about the movie, I doubt this would get me all excited. Will Smith can sell just about anything these days. Slapping his name on top in big, bold letters is probably all that’s needed.

OTL: Week 3

Went from twice a week to just one. Changed nights too. This ship is sinking fast. If it was on Bravo or the Sci-Fi channel (they’d figure out a way to make the concept work), the ratings would probably be acceptable... I thought the wedding ring in the toilet short was very sitcomish, but the director came up with some creative shots and a decent ending. Didn’t care for the “Meet the Parents” rip off. My least favorite. I actually found myself agreeing with Michael Bay a few times and it scared the bejesus out of me. Carrie Fisher and Gary Marshall don’t have a lot to offer in terms of constructive criticism. The blind date short was totally uninspired. Really disappointed me because I liked his previous film about the golfer. I’m not a fan of musicals, so I passed on that one. The documentary about the gay comedian was good. The director took a chance and did something outside the box. Will this show even make it to week four? Stay tuned... or not.

Most Haunted Live

The “Most Haunted” team has come across the pond! They’re in a haunted penitentiary tonight... until dawn! ZOINKS! This has got to be the funniest show on television. I’ve got an idea for a script that involves paranormal investigators so I’ll be taking plenty of notes throughout the night.

OTL: Week 2

Tough night for the female contestants. Two out of the remaining six were eliminated. Concepts weren’t that great. Where’s a good writer when you need ‘em? I thought the director of “Please Hold” should’ve made the cut. He had a really good eye. Would have been interesting to see him doing other genres. And what was up with all the potty humor? I like a good fart joke as much as the next guy, but come on already. “Replication Theory” was the only one that I thought pulled it off. “Spaced Out” and “A Golf Story” were also in my top three. Hopefully, "On The Lot" will survive long enough for us to see a winner.

On The Lot

Some memorable quotes from tonight’s show: “I’ve got thunder in my back pocket and lightning in the front!” ...”I’m like ten feet away from Princess Leia!”... “Brett Ratner makes the kinds of movies I want to make!” -- if there’s a god in heaven, please don’t let that guy win. Liked the celebrity judges, but haven’t we been down this road already? Where’s Chris Moore when you need him? Wannabees like myself will watch it religiously, but will the rest of America?

Heroes Season Finale

I don’t know about you but I was a bit letdown. It was good and all, just not the major fireworks I suspect many fans were anticipating. They gave us a solid but not spectacular episode. I expected the heroes to mesh together better in the final “team up”. Frankly, I’ve seen better season finales on “Buffy” and “Angel” -- I could even throw in that Sydney Bristow vs. Evil Francie shootout in season two on “Alias”. It was a bad sign last week when Ted went out with a whimper against Sylar. By the way, Sylar still isn’t dead. Why couldn’t Peter fly himself out of the atmosphere? What’s the deal with Shaft -- er, Simone’s Dad? Was that little side-trip really necessary? I can't believe I'm holding out hope for a decent finale from "Lost" -- which has been kicking butt for the last couple of months.

Distant Lover



Paula Patton is smokin’ hot. Okay, end of Captain Obvious moment. “Deja Vu” hinges on the idea that Denzel Washington’s character falls so hard for Patton that he’s willing to risk his life and the possibility of throwing the whole space/time continuum thingy out of whack by going back in time to save her. It’s interesting to look at some of the choices used to establish this attraction because her hotness plays a key role. There’s brief nudity -- which always helps, showing her bonding with a kid, being kind to an animal, being kind to an animal while wearing nothing but a bath towel, etc. Nothing wrong with those scenes. They’re quick and dirty -- no pun intended -- ways to make a character likable. Washington and Patton don’t interact until Act III so you gotta do something. At times, it does come off a little creepy though, a bunch of guys peering through a window into the past to ogle a hot chick in her underwear -- all in the name of science of course.
I like to portray a lot of my love interests as artistic types. Showing them manifest an idea into a musical piece, a painting, sculpture, etc. -- it kind of says, ‘This person is special. It’d be an awful shame if those mutant-spider eggs hatched and they ate their way out of her talented brain.’
The movie itself doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but time travel movies aren’t known for their flawless logic. At some point, I might check out the DVD for the commentary.

The Monster Squad



Comes out on DVD July 24!

What's Happening!?

Finally got through Shyamalan’s “The Happening”. It’s... okay. Didn’t blow my socks off or anything like that -- reality check: his mediocre is still light years ahead of my very best. The script is less character driven than his previous work. Normally, his stories are about ordinary people thrown into extraordinary situations, you know, classic “Twilight Zone” stuff. “The Happening” is mostly people running around, reacting to things. We’ve seen enough movies to know when someone decides to go off on their own, it’s usually the last time we’re gonna see them (alive anyway). You get that a few times. The first half of the script gives off a slight “War of the Worlds” vibe, which isn’t a great thing. Also, I didn’t fully buy into the way the “attack strategy” changes. Don’t get me wrong. Shyamalan has put together some tense, effective scenes here but... it’s just okay. It’s a lot better than “Lady” but that’s not saying much.

"Drive" PARKED



Quick but not surprising. I swear, Tim Minear must be some kind of masochist. I wasn’t crazy about the idea when I first read about it -- visions of “Cannonball Run” danced around in my head -- but the execution was pretty solid. I’m gonna blame the FOX marketing people for this one. Hot cars and hot women, seems like an easy sell. The “Fast and Furious” movies -- and I use that term loosely -- were wildly successful, so there’s definitely an audience out there. You have to wonder how many of them were even aware of the show.

Painkiller Jane



I could open up my book of really bad puns, but it’d be foolish to waste them on a show this awful. “Painkiller Jane” throws a monkey wrench deep in the gears of the quality original series machine the Sci-Fi Channel has used for the last couple of years. The 2005 TV movie with Emanuelle Vaugier had a much better premise and actually made sense. Couldn’t make heads or tails of this, especially with all the bad acting, shaky camera shots and dumb storyline. I didn’t think Kristanna Loken could give a performance worse than “Bloodrayne”, but boy I was way wrong! And one more thing, I know “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Desperate Housewives” have made the voice-over kind of cool again, but do we really we need Loken droning on and on, adding nothing to the story? Besides, don’t we already have a hot blonde who can heal herself on “Heroes”? Was this trip really necessary?

Full Moon stuff



Don’t know about you, but the cover art doesn’t exactly inspire me to rush out and pick up a copy. The Movie Blog had a blurb about a possible “Teen Wolf” remake. This time it’s about a female werewolf... The agony never ends. At the rate I’m going, “Werewolf Women of SS” will go from fake trailer to feature length film before my werewolf script is finished. Speaking of “Grindhouse”, I just started reading “Deathproof”. With a name like that you’d expect things to hit the fan rather quickly, instead there’s lots of inane dialogue. Yeah, I get it. Make us care about the characters, but it just seems to drone on and on...

Ghost Dog

Last night. Best. Episode. Ever. The “Ghost Whisperer” meets “The Dog Whisperer”. Seriously. I’m not making this up. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s character had to help a departed dog "cross over". Luckily for her, Cesar Millan just happened to be in the neighborhood. Again, not making any of this up! This has got to be right up there with the Flinstones meeting the Jetsons or when Richie Cunningham from “Happy Days” met Mork from “Mork and Mindy” or better yet, the “Six Million Dollar Man” teaming up with Sasquatch.

The Prestige


Even though I’ve been in the middle of the screenplay for the last month or so, when it became available on PPV, my curiosity about the final product got the best of me. With Chris Nolan directing and a cast that included Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine and Christian Bale, it had the potential of being something special. Most of “The Prestige” is highly entertaining, but there’s this twist at the end that’s so absurd, it ruins most of what you’ve seen. A good story that painted itself in a corner and resolves the dilemma by “cheating”. Now I haven’t read the Christopher Priest novel that the movie was based on -- at this point, why would I -- maybe something got lost in the translation. Whatever. I guess if you’re willing to accept the idea that “The Prestige” isn’t a movie about magic -- could’ve been about dueling hot dog vendors -- but obsession, maybe the ending works. Didn’t for me. Go watch “The Illusionist” instead.

The Number 23



Read the script a few days before it came out. Cool premise. Quick read. Didn’t really grab me though. A couple of interesting twists and turns, but the big reveal comes off more like a big let down than anything else. Audiences haven’t embraced it either. Might be worth watching just to see Virginia Madsen vamp it up.

Blood Ties

Caught the premiere on “Lifetime” last night. Started off slow, but once they got past the “there’s no such thing as vampires!” Abbott and Costello routine, things settled into a decent groove. Granted, I’m not the desired target audience -- the minute I see a guy in puffy shirt, surrounded by candleabras, lamenting about how horrible it is to be immortal, I’m bailing -- but “Blood Ties” seems like a keeper to me anyway. Probably will get all those female viewers that “Blade: The Series” had but didn’t know what to do with. All of a sudden, vampires shows are the new hot thing on television. HBO and CBS both have projects in the works.

Skinwalkers Poster



Looks like “Skinwalkers” is finally getting a release date. March 30th is a bit odd though. Everybody knows that December and January are the new October when it comes to horror release dates... probably wanted a lot of distance between “Blood and Chocolate” -- werewolf movies aren’t off to a great start in ‘07. The trailer can be found here. You’d think the official site would be shiny with new content and whatnot, but it’s as bare as it was since last year.

On my own werewolf spec front, finally found an opening sequence that I’m satisfied with. Even though I haven’t accomplished squat with the contest route, I am willing to give it another go with this script. A looming deadline always gives me the necessary kick in the pants to stop all the procrastination.

Back in Black

Hello?



Is this thing on?




Now where was I again? Oh yeah, that whole script writing thing... Got the bad news from Scriptapalooza TV last week. I can deal with not winning, but the part where I don’t place at all, highly frustrating. It’s like having your horse in the Kentucky Derby keel over as soon as the gate swings open. And it’s not like I started all of this yesterday. If my screenwriting career was a dog, it’d be middle aged at this point! I mean, with the dozens of quarter-finalists and semi-finalists that placed, doubt starts to creep in. Inevitably, the inner voice starts to go, “Am I William Hunging it?” You just have to remind the voice that contests are subjective and the best thing to do is move on. During my little hiatus, I was able to plug some of the gaping holes in the werewolf spec, which is couple weeks away from being okay. I also watched a bunch of movies and read some produced scripts that I’ll be getting into shortly.
