‘Nancy Wu Done It’: Amazon Developing Comedy About a YA Mystery Writer Who Gets Pulled Into One of Her Own Stories

Movies or TV shows in which creators are unwittingly sucked into their own stories have become a common trope. But it’s rare when one of those projects hails from an Asian-American perspective, and such is the case with Nancy Wu Done It, a new comedy series that Amazon recently purchased in a bidding war. The comedy, which is described as Pleasantville meets Nancy Drew, will center on a young adult Asian-American writer who’s sucked into her own book and must solve a mystery. Actress Jessica He...

The 1978 Project: Part V

The 1978 project is a deep dive into the cinema of a single year, undertaken on a whim late last year. As it turns out, this is somewhat good timing, as tons of 2020 films are getting delayed, so it's nice to still get a feel for a single year, even if it's not this year... and honestly, it's much easier to get a feel for the current year because, you know, you're already living it. I have no idea when I'll finish this project, but I've been making steady progress. Current status: I've seen 62 f...

‘Back to the Future’ Writer Explains Away a Long-Standing Issue Fans Have Questioned Over the Years

The original Back to the Future is largely considered to be a perfect movie. It’s a tight, clever, and fun screenplay that pays off everything it sets up in a very satisfying way, and Robert Zemeckis directed and co-wrote the hell out of it with Bob Gale. However, there’s one long-standing question that fans have pondered over the years, and after Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn called attention to it recently, Bob Gale himself explained the “problem” away.

The Film Doctor's one sentence review of Back to the Future

Why isn't the movie called Back to the Present (?), since Marty never does go into the future, even though, admittedly, Dr. Brown does late in the storyline as an afterthought; Robert Zemeckis could have called it Oedipus, the Skater Punk since the younger Lea Thompson as Marty's youthful mother steals the movie given her premature interest in her son and Crispin Glover as George McFly (Marty's dad) is simply astonishingly good as the consummate dork as Christopher Lloyd bugs out his eyes and p...
