We've touched on it from time to time, and it came up again a while back when we were discussing the new QUANTUM LEAP -- the nostalgia for the movies and TV shows of the 80s. There was just something about that time in our formative years, giving us a creative foundation that serves as a basis for comparison against everything that's come after.

We've talked about how difficult it can be to adapt any story to another medium, and we've talked about adaptations that didn't quite hit the mark. So what about those stories we think SHOULD get adapted to film or television? How long is that list?

Back in the day, there was a distinct separation between acting for television and being in the movies. Usually, actors pursued one over the other. But nowadays, that line between the two seems to have blurred quite a bit, with actors regularly sliding between theatrical films and streaming series.  Which raises the question: how much does it actually matter?

Over the weekend, we got the news that Warner Bros. Discovery has made a new multi-year deal for the overseas theatrical distribution rights for MGM films. Which means at a certain point, WB will be distributing stuff like the James Bond films. Eventually. Plus: Nexstar has just closed a deal for a majority ownership of The CW, and they're about to launch the network in a completely new direction that has no resemblance to what...

It's a tale that gets better and better as things develop. Someone bought one of a handful of books collecting the production designs and concept art for Alexandro Jodorowsky's attempt to adapt Frank Herbert's DUNE from way back in the day -- even before David Lynch did it.And then, this person thought that because he now owned one of the books, he had the rights to make the movie. It went downhill from there.

Spinning out of an earlier discussion, we thought we'd take a night to discuss the career of Nicolas Cage, who's spent a good deal of time in the genre realms -- GHOST RIDER, FACE/OFF, WILLY'S WONDERLAND, COLOR OUT OF SPACE, and who could forget SEASON OF THE WITCH?And were you aware of this thing where people put Nicolas Cage's face pretty much ... everywhere?

With the news that Christopher Walken has been cast as the Emperor in DUNE: PART TWO, we thought we'd take a moment to reflect on various... unexpected casting choices in cinematic history. Heath Ledger? Michael Keaton? What are some casting decisions that really flipped the script on a character?

Over the weekend, Mr. Harvey participated in the Independent Filmmakers Coalition's One Night Stand short film competition, and that got us thinking. With the fizzle of LIGHTYEAR, the slow decline of the Marvel films, and the 'franchise fatigue" that seems to be setting in, is it finally time for smaller movies to make a comeback?

There are quite a few "moments" — bits of story that stick with you for days, years, forever after. Great lines in movies, action sets, battle sequences, character interactions, etc. all sear themselves into our collective memories. They become iconic moments that define our perception of those stories. We quote them. We turn them into memes. They become cultural shorthand.And it's not limited to television and movies. ...
