  1. Thread where we can chat about production budgets for current and upcoming movies. Best sources for budgets are the trade papers VARIETY and THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, plus the L.A. Times and BOM and IMDB and SBD (complete access). As an aside, Aaron Sorkin appeared on the The Rewatchables podcast and he had an interesting tidbit on production budgets (30 min mark). I'm paraphrasing... There is no net with respect to whatever percent of the net you're promised. Studios will often charge to your movie development funds spent on movies they didn't make. Not to mention marketing/prints. A Few Good Men cost $41m to make, made over $500m (including rentals) but hasn't shown a profit. He recounts how Bill Goldman, writer for (the profitable) All the Presidents Men, told a story about how each year after the film's release, Warner Bros writes him a letter stating how the movie hasn't realized a profit. The 14th year, he gets a very small check, the 15th year, the movie somehow goes back into the red!

  3. Stick this on Hulu and be done with it.
  4. Probably my least favorite mainstream QT film (outside of Planet Terror) but glad to see it is doing well.
  5. American here. I don’t want to read subtitles or see dubbed films when plenty of options I enjoy are in English Also, I’ll watch foreign language movies if there is Oscar buzz or some hype around them.
