There is a long history of not necessarily creative suits deciding they can improve a movie. They say they love the movie, like Terry Gilliam ‘s Brazil, which was improved by one suit by chopping off 20 minutes, and instead of the original dark ending creating a happy ending.

Or Harvey Weinstein who loved Shaolin Soccer so much he tried taking the axe to it to so as to improve that movie. Same with Snowpiercer.

Fortunately these films are available in their original, pre-suit improvement, versions.

It was like it's own series of 33 issues. You can buy the three volume set on Amazon.

Vol 1

Vol 2

Vol 3

Howeverm if you are not in a huge hurry, they are releasing it as a 2 volume set, and you can preorder the first one which comes out in May.

Getting the 2 volume one will save you a lot because it costs more for the 3 separately anyway, and somehow it's hard to find Volume 2 (of the 3 set), so the price is higher.

But there was a TV program that was 1-2 hours well that stemmed from this book. It may be what you’re talking about but I don’t remember this particular program being in the bonus features.

I consider myself a big DC fan, but I actually didn't know about the Delaware Bay thing until I was reading the Time Out travel guide for Gotham and Metropolis and noticed an ad in the middle showing the location of the cities on the east coast. I did some research and, like you said, Delaware and New Jersey. But boy doesn't it make sense that Gotham is in New Jersey? Damn lol

No, but I'm familiar with the idea.

Another good one is Two Gentlemen of Lebowski.

This movie was written by Blake Snyder. Despite how poorly the movie turned out, Snyder went on to write, "Save The Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need," which became a (the?) leading book on film writing. He also wrote the 1994 movie, "Blank Check."

This book was a real eye opener for me, I got it for a Film class in college, but didn't read it till after I graduated. I'm not a filmmaker, but it helped me to understand what film is and the visual language it uses to tell stories:

True. Kubrick was often guilty of growing so attached to the temp track score that he refused to change.

Alex North composed much of the score before Kubrick cancelled on him. There's also a modern recording by Jerry Goldmith Alex North's 2001: World Premiere Recording, which is quite striking.

sorry to tell you, but again, no. you won't want to hear this as a meat eater. there are many vegan bodybuilders who eat nothing but plants and are absolutely huge. and meat contains casein among other extremely unhealthy elements that lead to heart disease, cancer, etc. this is why both the Mayo clinic and Harvard have issued many warnings over the years against meat consumption.



check out a book by Colin Campbell called The China Study. you can read a lot about Tibetan longevity in that book.

The China Study: Deluxe Revised and Expanded Edition: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health https://www.amazon.com/dp/194295283X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_M3Q6CbQPSD1T4

people from Tibet as well as other parts of the world have more longevity because of a reduced intake of meat, red meat in particular (compared to fish or chicken which aren't as bad for the system).

I am saying:

  1. The marines have encountered alien life forms before

  2. The marines have not encountered these alien life forms before

    1 seems to be pretty clear from context. They talk about Arcturians ("It don't matter when it's Arcturian!"), they're familiar with what a "bug hunt" would entail, and they don't seem to react with surprise to Ripley's story of the Nostromo's encounter. And 2 is even clearer—I mean, if they'd encountered the movie's bad guys before, they wouldn't react with so much shock and "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS" alarm. They'd already know.

    If you want to go somewhat extra-canonical, the Colonial Marines Technical Manual is full of references to extraterrestrial life—sentience seems pretty rare, but there are "bugs" everywhere. Not bugs as in our capital-A movie Aliens, but lots and lots of various kinds of annoying life that Marines have to frequently get rid of.

He doesn't "talk shit" as in insult people or put people down, but he frequently "talks shit" as in makes up complete bullshit lies to explain explain things or rewrite history. It's not to insult people, but it feels to me to be a form of insecurity that he is unwilling or unable to admit that anything was a "mistake" or that he changed his mind ever.

A fantastic book about the history of the franchise that provides all sorts of citations demonstrates how Lucas's favourite phrase is "I always intended..." (as South Park famously parodied).

Star Wars was originally (or at least very early) conceived as a Flash Gordon serial of a dozen films - but like James Bond with completely independent stories set around the same characters/universe, with Lucas directing the first, and handing the reins to other directors for each subsequent film.

At some point it becomes more of a saga... then you get the trilogy... the prequels... the sequels... in the interviews preceding the mid-90s special edition VHS tapes he alleges to have always planned a 9-part story with 4-5-6 being the middle, and having plans for the stories for the other two trilogies. Later he claimed he never actually had anything planned for the sequel trilogy beyond a brief outline, and I think even later still he denied ever planning a sequel trilogy when he realized that he was going to make the series about the rise and fall of Vader (who was dead after ep.6) which would make a sequel trilogy out of place.

That's just one example. He claims to have always planned the stories as they were, even though it's clear that Vader wasn't written as Luke's father until a revised draft of Empire (Vader is more of a henchman to Tarkin than a central villain in Ep. 4 - he didn't become the menacing figurehead leader of the empire until Ep. 4) Various lines in Ep4 have to be twisted to fit the father narrative - most famously Obiwan's "true... from a certain point of view" line.
