Toronto Screenwriting Conference 2016 Day 2

  The creativity and writing began early as day 2 of the Toronto Screenwriting Conference got underway this morning with showrunner Stephen Falk (Orange is the New Black, Weeds, and You’re the Worst) took to the stage to talks about how to break a season, or specifically how he and his writer’s room, break a…

Superman Returns (2006) – Bryan Singer

  It’s back to the Sci-Fi Chronicles book (I realize this one is starting to overshadow the Great Movie – 100 Years of Film book, but I’m really enjoying it, especially when I can chain-watch a series of films one after the other). This time, I have a look at Bryan Singer’s 2006 update of…

The film…

Superman (1978) – Richard Donner

Anyone who knows me, knows that alongside Iron Man, my favorite comic book hero of all time is Superman. He has always given me something to strive for, to try to make myself better than I am, to hold myself and others to a higher form of ideals. And all of that stems back to…
