I recently purchased an AppleTV and love it. Initially, my only objection was the fact that my HDTV is 1080p.
It seems like the difference between 1080p and 720p is big, but it’s not. Ever notice how sports in HD looks amazing? Well, the major networks (ABC, ESPN, Fox) have 720p resolution for the HD programming. It’s not about pixels per inch as much as it is bit rate.Dignan

Female First has put together a list of the the top 10 movies people pretend to have seen.

Netflix offers a wide variety of pricing for almost any budget. Personally, I’m enjoying all the movies they’ve added recently for instant streaming, plus one DVD out at a time (let’s face, not everything you want is available for streaming). I’m a Mac owner and using the latest version of Firefox, I’ve never experienced a problem with streaming in the six months I’ve been a subscriber. You can also view these on your TV with a Wii, PS3, or XBox 360. They suposedly have options to view on your iPhone or iPad, and I’m sure it looks good, but I haven’t had the opportunity to check it out.
Current Netflix prices are below (as of the date of this post):
A MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is “a plot element that catches the viewers’ attention or drives the plot of a work of fiction”. The defining aspect of a MacGuffin is that the major players in the story are (at least initially) willing to do and sacrifice almost anything to obtain it, regardless of what the MacGuffin actually is. In fact, the specific nature of the MacGuffin may be ambiguous, undefined, generic, left open to interpretation or otherwise completely unimportant to the plot. (Examples might include money, victory/glory, survival, a source of power, a potential threat, etc….or something entirely unexplained.)Written by Dignan

“Tales from the Script is actually the ideal summation on the art of screenwriting: rigorously structured, filled with great stories.” — NPR.org
Few modern art forms are as misunderstood as the craft of screenwriting, because the collaborative nature of filmmaking and the dominance of celebrity actors and directors obscures the contributions of screenwriters. So if you’re a writer eager to break into Hollywood or simply a movie buff excited to hear the stories behind your favorite films, this unique nonfiction book/documentary film project will captivate you with insights into the wild and mysterious world of Hollywood screenwriting.
Enjoy inside conversations with the men and women who dreamed up some of the world’s most beloved movie characters. Learn how they surmounted the incredible odds against breaking into Hollywood, and discover the myriad ways in which they transformed their ideas into films that topped the box office, launched the careers of major stars, and earned them Oscars. The stories behind the storytellers are as exciting, surprising, and inspirational as the narratives of their celebrated films.
Revel in the exploits of Shane Black (Lethal Weapon), John Carpenter (Halloween), Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally…), William Goldman (The Princess Bride), David Hayter (Watchmen), Paul Mazursky (An Unmarried Woman), Bruce Joel Rubin (Ghost), Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver), Ron Shelton (Bull Durham), and dozens of other Hollywood writers. For the full list, click here.
In addition to name-brand talents, Tales from the Script features newcomers whose stories prove that talented people can write their way into the top ranks of the movie industry. There’s Justin Zackham, who decided to write one last script before giving up on his flagging movie career; the script became The Bucket List, a sleeper hit starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. There’s Ari B. Rubin, a second-generation screenwriter who skipped his law-school entry exam to finish a screenplay that got optioned by Robert Redford. There’s Duncan Tucker, who scraped together money from real-estate ventures, friends, and family to make Transamerica, the bold story about gender issues that netted leading lady Felicity Huffman an Oscar nomination.
Tales from the Script puts readers into the trenches of the Hollywood development process through colorful stories about Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Adam Sandler, Joel Silver, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, and many more. Entertaining, startling, and uplifting, this collection is a pure pleasure for those who dream of writing the Great American Screenplay—it’s a master class taught by those who made that dream come true.
