Lancelot Link Thursday!

Lancelot Link Thursday! For those of you who read Vonnegut's Welcome To The Monkey House in High School, here are some articles about screenwriting and the biz plus some fun stuff that may be of interest to you. Brought to you by that suave and sophisticated secret agent...

Here are seven cool links plus this week's car chase...

1) New JAWS book!

2) Ten Coolest Hidden Passages (including one into an office).

3) If Summer Movie Posters Told The Truth!

4) Obi Wan Kenobi Is Dead!

5) Map To New York Superheroes.

6) Want To Buy Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang?

7) If you are one of the five people who hasn't seen Damn You Auto Correct! here is is.

8) This week's car chase: Luc Besson's TAXI 3, with the French Sylvester Stallone... and a cool bicycle vs. motorcycle chase!

That guy looks just like Stallone, doesn't he - but the voice is higher.

TODAY'S SCRIPT TIP: Sledge Hammer - if you want to send a message, call Western Union.
Dinner: Philly Cheese Steak.
Pages: A couple of good pages, still behind.
Bicycle: Short bike ride.

Movies: BRIDESMAIDS - about a half an hour too long, a scattershot plot (what's up with the roommate scenes?), and rated R only for language... but funny and Kristen Wiig is great. Show stolen by Melissa McCarthy. It's Apatow produced - so where's the nudity? In the sex scene Wiig wears this bra that looks bullet-proof! Come on! At least give her some lace! I would have loved to have the gal from RENO 911 nekkid (and her character was sex starved, so it would have worked), but aren't Apatow movies usually filled with male full frontal nudity? Here - the film is PG (except for language and really crude humor). They seriously should have focused the script before they filmed it and cut at least 20 minutes. It meanders all over the place and needs some more jokes. I want Wiig (and the women) to have a huge hit like HANGOVER, but am afraid this isn't it.
