    I like 18 of the movies on that list. Of the ones I've seen I actively disliked only three (Avatar, Phantom Menace, Unexpected Journey). I was indifferent about the two Pirates movies, and Finding...

    The basic concept of justice, however, requires that there be some compelling indication of guilt before a verdict (legal or personal) is reached and consequences are doled out. As long as lying...

    I don't recall a lot of barefootedness in Whedon's work.

    Young women with superpowers and lots of quips are his trademarks.

    Yep. All talented storytellers working within a well-built structure.

    You could do a whole documentary TV series on great comics creators... artists and writers, books and strips. You wouldn't run out of material very soon.

    That episode of No Reservations where he went to Cleveland and hung out with Harvey Pekar and Toby Radloff... I knew we would get along just fine.

    I'd love to see a good adaptation of the other Oz books... Baum's are all in the public domain. But there would be so much pressure to make them more "contemporary" by adding odd bits of sex and...

    God damn it. I was just reading his comics series, too. I never even knew he was depressed. Maybe as a punk rocker at heart, he just wanted to die before he got old.

    Every day in every way, the...

    Originally, the term "Mary Sue" was intended to make fun of characters in Star Trek fanfic who were author-insert characters designed to service the (usually female) author's fantasy of being with...

    Those characters are more faithful to the Charles Addams originals than any we've seen yet. Unfortunately, that's not the version most people are going to be interested in seeing. The original...

    "There it is. Looks like you've got some kind of alternate universe in there or something." --John Ratzenberger, House II: The Second Story

    Are they also going to dig up Roald Dahl's corpse and tie it to a stake so they can throw dog poo at it? Because they might as well do that while they're at it.

    But this didn't happen immediately as the result of a single writer, as with modern stories. The Arthurian legend grew and changed and evolved organically over centuries. Chrétien de Troyes is most...

    The Arthurian Mythos is a series of many stories, not just one. Lancelot was the protagonist of his own story. Yes, he threw a monkey wrench into Arthur's story as well, but all stories have...
  18. Lancelot wasn't a Mary Sue, he was a protagonist....

    Lancelot wasn't a Mary Sue, he was a protagonist. A hero. He did the things a hero is supposed to do.

    I think I'm getting a little better vision of the endgame now.

    Delos's real reason for the project (and I assume this was originally William's idea) is to monitor the guests to gather as many data...

    Strictly speaking, the protagonist of an original story can't be a Mary Sue. A Mary Sue is an author-insert character who takes agency away from the proper protagonist.

    Many people misuse the term as a synonym for "author insert"... which is a perfectly valid literary tool that goes back millennia.

    I don't think the use of a "Mary Sue" character always makes for...

    The Thamesmen? :-)

    There was supposed to be a Rolling Stones biopic coming out with Harry Styles playing Jagger, but last I heard Styles hadn't even heard about it. That would be a great story,...

    They did an animated version of "The Black Cauldron" which was not entirely successful, although I remember the animation being pretty good for the time.

    This is another one that needs to be a TV...

    The thing that most often kills projects like this is trying to do a movie when a series is called for instead.

    With a Forgotten Realms TV show, I probably wouldn't try to adapt the existing...
