Title: We have a Pitch Meeting thread now. Threads are _tight!_
Post by: JasonPratt on May 10, 2018, 07:42:54 AM
I'm not going to say that keeping up with this thread will be barely an inconvenience, but we have a well-deserved Honest Trailer thread, so dangit, we need one of these, too!




The latest one as of today. I don't even watch that show yet (somehow), and I still loved the skit. And this is arguably one of the weaker skits because of the show's quality!

"So, the upside-down place is..... is Canada." "No, no, this place is covered in sticky, black goo." "Fun fact, much of Canada is covered in sticky, black goo!" "That sounds like something you just made up." "Yep."  :smitten:

I think this may catch us up on all the classic eps? -- sort of the obverse of the Big Bang Theory.  <:-)



Since there wasn't a super-easy (for reasons), I added three extras in the comments:

"So, Diana rescues Steve in this meet-cute scene when his plane gets shot down over Themyscara." "Product placement!" "What?" "What?" "I don't--" "I was thinking we could have everyone slightly mispronounce the island's name, to sound like Femme Mascara." "Okay!" "Because this movie being set in World War One doesn't have much opportunity for that." "Good idea!" "You were saying?" "She rescues him after he's shot down in the water and then there's our first big fight sequence." "With Amazons vs fighter planes?" "What?" "Well, you said he got shot down, so--" "No, that's, I don't know how they could fight against fighter planes." "With bows and arrows I guess." "What?" "We already made the end-credit abstract title sequence like all such movies have nowadays." "And?" "And the Amazons are shooting down fighters with bows and arrows." "Well, that's an idea, but I wanted more of a fight on the beach." "The fighter planes land?" "No, no, there are German marines." "From where?" "The destroyer that's chasing Steve." "Chasing a plane?" "Sure." "Could ships do that back then?" "Sure." "How do they get through the force field? Or Steve for that matter?" "The what now?" "You said earlier Zeus created the island for his Amazons and gave them a force field." "I did?" "To protect the island {riffling pages} I think, back here somewhere." "Oh, there's no force-field, people can stick their heads straight through the illusion." "That's really convenient!" "Yeah, and see, that way the destroyer can sail in and land some marines to fight the Amazons." "And they have swords and bows, and the Germans have guns!" "Right!" "Women with swords and bows are tight!" "No kidding! Great for the trailer, too!" "And then after the fight, how do they beat the destroyer?" "The what now?" "The destroyer which brought the marines. It would be shelling them on the shore after they beat the marines. That would provide a threat they'd have a hard time fighting against, ramping up the tension to a big crazy climax." "No, it's super-easy, barely an inconvenience." "Bold choice!" "See, we'd have the marines kill the Princess Bride." "Good idea!" " Right, that's, like, an homage." "And then they get super torqued when the shells start falling afterward?" "No, no, then they take Steve up to the temple and tie him up." "The Nazis? You said they were dead." "No, the Amazons." "Oh." "An island full of hot women tying him up." "Oh, right, yeah!" "And making him tell the truth." "Hot!" "And then he takes a bath." "Tight!" "And that's where we'll have the awkward penis joke!" "Excellent!" "While he's shirtless." "For the ladies!" "Among other people, sure." "And then?" "Just some plot exposition, don't want to get too racy after the penis joke." "Eh, maybe a good idea." "And that's how we solve that problem." "What problem?" "Exactly!"


"So, since they're in a hurry to get to England, they're gonna fly in her invisible jet to get there?" "No, what? No, that would be silly." "Oh." "No, they're going to sail to England." "Oh." "On a sailboat." "Oh." "An OLD sailboat." "Oh. Wait, did you say sail all the way to England from Themyscyra?" "Sure." "But that's, like, off the coast of Greece somewhere?" "I guess." "Why not sail to some other Allied country?" "Which one?" "I don't know, my memory of WW1 is hazy." "The United States?" "Yeah, no wait, that's on the other side of the Atlantic." "I don't really see the problem here." "It's just, they're in a hurry..." "Uh huh." "And telephones exist in this world, right?" "They do! ...{scribbling on some pages}" "But they're going to sail, to England, from Greece, in a hurry." "Well, I wanted there to be this scene of sexual tension and some lesbianism acknowledged." "Oh!" "Y'know, for the fans." "Right!" "And the kids." "Right! Lesbianism is tight!" "Yeah." "It's just, I mean, they're going to be on that boat a long time." "Nope, just one night, gotta move the plot along." "Really!" "Yeah." "Is she rowing to England overnight or something with her super-strength?" "What? No, that would be silly." "Well, it seems like it'll be crazy difficult for them to get to England all the way across the Mediterranean and up the Spanish coast and some of the French coast in one night." "No, it's super easy, barely an inconvenience." "...I, I'm not... I don't..." "They get a _tow_." "Oh." "Into London." "Oh." "After they fall asleep." "Oh." "See? Problem solved! ....{scribbling}" "...they're towed from Greek waters to England..." "No, what? No, that would be silly." "But." "Did I mention the lesbianism?" "You did!" "Moving along then."


"So the plane explodes." "Yep!" "Exploding planes are tight!" "They are!" "From all the bombs?" "Yeah! What?" "In the plane. It's a bomber right? Like in Captain America?" "Sure!" "So the bombs explode." "Ah, no, I only have poison gas in the plane." "Oh, so the gas is flammable enough to explode." "Sure, why not?" "That seems like it would be really awesome." "It will be!" "Poison gas that explodes when you light it afterward!" "Tight, huh?!" "Yeah, so we show that sometime as a test, right?" "You bet! The town Diana saves gets gassed and everyone she saved dies!" "Wow, super-dark!" "I know, and it serves the purpose of making her angry at Steve so she'll leave him behind for a while to go fight not-Ares." "So she's there after the explosion." "The what?" "Well, that's the plan, right? The Nazis shoot this super-poison gas into the city to test it, and then they detonate it with a regular shell afterward for massive extra damage. Big explosion scene." "Uh." "I know, uh, right?" "Yeah." "Still all those charred bodies will be awfully dark, so don't show them much." "Well, I wasn't planning to." "Good." "I, uh, I just wanted Diana to wander around the town and see some people's bodies we can recognize, so the audience is super-sure this is the same town she saved earlier." "But you can't because of the charred corpses." "I know, uh, so, I was, um, thinking that she'd be just there in the poison cloud, walking around." "Oh." "So we can see the distinctive dress of various people she met." "Yeah, okay, but..." "What?" "I mean, it seems like she'd have some trouble surviving the poison gas and then the Nazis detonating all of it on top of her." "Oh, she can do that super easy, barely an inconvenience." "Wow, really, she's that indestructable, like Superman?" "I don't know." "Then how does she survive the explosion?" "What explosion?" "And the super-deadly poison?" "Magic." "What?" "She's magic, right? It's magic." "Ah!" "See?" "Magic is tight!"

Post by: JasonPratt on July 19, 2018, 05:56:10 AM
Wow, now they're catching up on their own backlog!




I added the following in a comment.

Quote
"Also, so my wife made me go to church for the first time ever, and did you know there's this book called the Bible with lots of great short stories in it?" "What? That's... I don't think..." "So she showed me several of them, and I decided to put them in the script!" "Really! You're going to build your script on... on what now?" "Well there's a parable about a prodigal son..." "Oh, yeah, one of the most famous pieces of literature in world history!" "And another parable about a good samaritan...." "Again, an absolute classic! Even people who have never cracked open a Bible know about these, good choices!" "Yeah, I thought they sounded familiar, and then I added a third story about a selfish douchey guy who thinks about how awesome he is that he has so many things to himself, but then he gets a massive wakeup call when he learns he's going to die and suddenly being a jerkhog with a bunch of toys doesn't seem so important anymore!" "...I don't recall that one, but it sounds legit. So, but wait, a lot of people may kind of resent going to Sunday School for the first film in what we hope will be a never-ending money printing operation, I mean critically acclaimed shared universe based on beloved fantasy-sci/fi properties," {looks straight at the camera}, "so aren't you going kind of too far with this plan?" "Yeah, but I figure if I drop in some REALLY REALLY OBVIOUS allusions to the stories, like shove them into the audience's faces, they'll be, like, TOO obvious, and then no one will complain. In fact, I have a theory that few people will even notice!" "So for example...?" "For example, when Tony Stark is about to start his Good Samaritan part of the story, he'll look at the audience and announce the name of his new missile system is THE JERICHO!" "Ow, wow, that does sound super obvious." "And we'll destroy a mountain range behind him for emphasis!" "Ha!" "Aha ha!" "And he picked this random name for what reason?" "Exactly!"

I've been watching these sketches on their ScreenRant channel, all pretty damn hilarious.

Most of the youtube channel is nothing but crappy click-baits and click-bait lists ("Top 10 blah blah blahs") stolen from other channels,
and in the middle of all the crap, they have these amazingly funny videos.

I think it's because the movie is based on a settings and characters from Comic books, and not something written completely for the sake of the movie.

Yep, that's how it works. 

Original screenplay is for something totally created by the writer of said screenplay, based on no prior work.

The Return of the Jedi had so many horribly obvious plot holes in it that this Pitch Meeting is weak.  Too much ground to cover.

I remember after seeing it in the theater and saying:
Remember in Star Wars how there was this tiny design flaw and if everything worked just right they could blow up the Death Star?  In this episode they replaced the tiny design flaw with a four lane highway.
Title: Re: We have a Pitch Meeting thread now. Threads are _tight!_
Post by: JasonPratt on July 14, 2019, 05:42:37 PM
It wasn't really a plot hole: the Death Star was still under construction, and those were relatively clear paths for assembly ships to move in and out.

I have always supposed that the Emperor's plan involved drawing them to the Death Star's true location for two reasons: (1) because trying to trick the Rebellion into assaulting somewhere else ran the risk of the Rebellion detecting a ruse (many Bothans died getting them the information, as famously said); and (2) he intended to use the functioning main gun to catch the fleet in a crossfire (i.e. "it's a trap!") It seem to recall (though I might be misremembering) there was even a little dialogue questioning the validity of the information.

Of course, the Death Star wasn't really wide open at all: it had NO holes, due to the local shield generator on the surface, which was protected from a small sneak strike by a large ground force waiting for ambush.

What didn't make sense was that the Death Star would have no shielding of its own. Sure, it had to be made to look vulnerable, so having a shield generator on the surface as its (apparent) vulnerable point makes sense in that context. But the moment that thing came down anyway, the DS's own shielding system should have come up. But it didn't have any! -- when that should have been the first thing completed! (Unless those were destroyed by the crash of the Executor? I'm pretty sure that explanation isn't the film.)

I suppose the explanation could be stretched to include the concept that the Rebels might have found out there was a main shield, and then would have been suspicious of a orbital shield generator on the planet -- or at least would have figured (correctly) that destroying it would be pointless -- so the Emperor decided to make sure the DS looked vulnerable by leaking the information that it had no inherent shields.

I think it's important to note, in criticizing his plan, that by all appearances IT WOULD HAVE WORKED! He perfectly caught the whole rebel fleet in a crossfire. (I'm pretty sure in the novelization, there would have been mention of gravity generators to block hyperspace jumping, which was a thing introduced in Ep5, and heavily employed in the battles of the original true sequel trilogy story from Zahn about Thrawn, if not also in the X-Wing games which I also sort-of remember.) And he caught the sneak mission with a lot more ground power waiting in ambush.

His whole plan would have worked, aside from possibly still losing to the Skywalkers, if Luke hadn't 'forced' C-3P0 to be a god to the local carnivorous teddy-bears, earning their alliance!


To this evaluation, may I add the implicit agreement of Zahn himself, who had his strategic and tactical mastermind Thrawn complaining, not about the Emperor's plan per se, but about building another Death Star at all instead of several more fleets based around Super Star Destroyers. (He mourned the loss of Vader's flagship, the Executor, more than the loss of either DS.)  :nerd:


Anyway, nothing matters anymore, because we now know that anyone could have programmed a hyperspace missile at any time to destroy either of the Death Stars, or practically anything else, whenever they wanted to.  ::)  :P  :pullhair:

I kind of don't blame Sony for wanting to take another crack at the character for a while, maybe the McGuire or Garfield versions specifically so that there will be less confusion. ("Less": Dr. Evil fingerquotes.)

But earning millions of dollars straight profit for doing LITERALLY NOTHING except owning the legal right to give permission to use the characters? How much of a no brainer is that? If there's a strong and coherent artistic vision that would be one thing, but I've seen nothing to indicate Sony execs have that in mind (even to exploit it), and that can only leave the other rationale: gambling their money on making even more money than they could make by doing nothing.

I disagree.  Disney owns all of the merchandising rights to Spiderman and gets 50% of the take currently.  Sony offered to continue the deal and Disney refused.  Merchandising rights is a huge part of movies aimed at kids - and Disney wanted that plus > 50% of the take from the film?  Screw them. 

Disney is being unreasonable and Sony eventually decided to walk.

Partly due to being experimental I think -- they hadn't done a live-action remake exactly yet, but saw how much money could be minted doing a loose pair of sequels to Alice in Wonderland (of all things).

What boggles my mind is why there's even a sequel to this coming out. I thought they told the story the way they wanted (badly) in the first film! -- is this going to be a straight remake now?

This reminds me that I never figured out why the 70s Gemini Man series was about an invisible man secret agent (somewhat on the Six Million Dollar plan)...

It made me read about Netflix being in debt, and then getting even more in debt so it can fund more crap content instead of just letting viewers outside the U.S

How is that any different than any other Disney movie?
Aladdin, Lion King, Little Mermaid and others were all supposed to be one-shots as well.

"Well, I do refuse to learn from others' mistakes!" "That's what I love about you, sir!"

My parents by the way adore this movie.
