The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Ol Parker is back as the screenwriter, and John Madden returns as the director. Both try to give this sequel the same feel as the first, but they've run out of ideas. Buying a new hotel seems like a giddy capitalistic exploit.

When Andrea Grossman of Writers Bloc booked Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey from the folk music group Peter, Paul and Mary and Theodore Bikel to boot, it was more than a concert and discussion.

The DUFF Author Kody Keplinger on the Film Adaptation, Writer's Block, and Self Esteem

Quora | Posted 03.02.2015 | Books

What does it feel like to have your book turned into a movie? It's very surreal! Before the book even came out, I had posted on my blog that Mae Whitman would make the perfect Bianca. I'd seen her on Parenthood and she just had the right attitude. She was exactly how I'd imagined the character.

Let me suggest trying some of Netflix's selection of Bollywood movies. I've recently watched a bunch of these, and at the very least, they're more compelling than some Nicholas Cage-paying-off-his-debt-to-the-IRS medieval action flick.

Will Smith carries this film on shoulders. His cool demeanor and devil-may-care attitude are appealing. He has tremendous stage presence, and he knows how to work the camera.

How Do You Play Muggle Quidditch?

Quora | Posted 02.27.2015 | Sports

The game is played on a 'pitch', about the third of the length of a soccer field, it is roughly elliptical in shape, though the edges are not treated as 'hard' boundaries as they tend to be in other sports. There are three hoops of varying heights at each end of the pitch, if premade hoops aren't available, many teams will resort to hanging hulahoops from soccer nets.

I am certain that there are a few comedy writers out there who would love to see their name in the credits, but have no idea how to get there. In the spirit of sharing, here are a few highlights from my many conversations with producer Marlinda Walcott.

Super-Size the Super Bowl

Rick Rosner

A six-quarter Super Bowl would have 50 percent more football and double the halftimes. It would take about five hours. New records would be set in just about every category. Who wouldn't want to watch a Super Bowl with a final score of 73 to 68?

So at Sseko, we don't do charity. We're not philanthropists. We're convinced we can use business to make a dent in the universe for women and girls. But, contrary to the feedback we received from the Sharks, we're not going to wait until we get really, really rich to start making a difference

There is a system of trust between my generation and the Hollywood directors that in movies based on historical events, especially ones that took place decades before our lifetimes, the essential facts of the stories are correct.
