Good Will Hunting 20th Anniversary

StorySmack Episode #31

Hard to believe it’s been twenty years since Good Will Hunting was released! Hard to remember a time when Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were small time enough to be caught in development hell trying to get this movie made. Back before they were Oscar winners.

Thankfully they got through all of that, and Good Will Hunting stands the test of time! Join us while we discuss the good, the bad and the legend that is Good Will Hunting.

ALONE Episode #8

Em and her friends try to understand the nature of the orbital assault. The attack could have easily destroyed Uchmal, if the attackers had used enough force. But despite the deaths and destroyed buildings, the attackers seem to, as Spingate put it, “Go easy” on the Birthday Children. Why? Em makes the trek to the top of the towering Observatory to try and understand why.

Chinatown — the perfect screenplay?

StorySmack Episode #29

In this week’s episode Scott and I discuss the storied screenplay for Chinatown. The movie came out in 1974, and the screenplay has been heralded as near-perfect since then. There is a lot to unpack and discuss about the movie, the script, the crew and the era of American filmmaking, so jump right in!

http://http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/29_StorySmack_29_-_Chinatown.mp3

It’s a lovely movie. A throw-back noir, featuring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, is based on an original screenplay written by Robert Towne. Towne won the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award for his effort.
