The Works of Quentin Tarantino
Our grandparents had Hitchcock, and now we have Tarantino. Every generation has their defining filmmakers and Tarantino happens to be one of them for our generation. You can talk about some of his greatest works and the story behind them, his work ethics, how he came to be a director, etc. The possibilities are endless.
You can also write about another filmmaker if there’s someone else you’re more passionate about.
Obscure Fairy Tales/Mythology to Adapt
Instead of recycling the same idea again and again, I think film studios can start looking at more obscure fairy tales or mythology to adapt. I’m sure there are myriads of them out there, not limited to Ancient Greek or European stories.

Best Post-2010s Animated TV Show List
I have seen many articles swirling around about the best Animated TV Shows and most of them are saturated with classics. I’d be interested in seeing a similar list, but of newer show, like Bob’s Burgers or Rick and Morty. Can be post-2010s or post-2000s. Your pick!
Divergent: Who Sympathises With Tris Prior?
Does anyone actually relate to her as a character? IMO, she’s literally too perfect, a typical Mary Sue conjured by an inexperienced writer, unlike Katniss.
British TV vs American Adaptations
Do you notice any re-occuring patterns in American Adaptations of British TV? How come only a few achieve the success of its original source? What went right/wrong?

A Look at the Bibliography of Gore Vidal
Gore Vidal is an influential writer who has written across a wide spectrum of topics and mediums.
It’d be interesting to look at his delightfully diverse bibliography and analyze why he’s found such success in all the different platforms.
The Impact of Fresh Off The Boat as the First Asian-Led American Show
Fresh off the boat has been a hit with audiences, Asian or not, but what does this signify for Asian characters in the American media industry? Will there be more opportunities for them to appear in mainstream films in the future or is it just a one-off thing? And no, I’m not talking about them appearing as a henchman or asexual best friend character.
The Significance of Anamorphic Characters in Bojack Horseman
Did the creator made them that way just because or is there something more to it? How do the show’s anamorphic characters differ from the human ones? I think it’ll be an interesting to explore.
It is somewhat of a cash-in, but I enjoyed it with a sense of nostalgia. A well-made movie nonetheless, so it won’t be a waste seeing it for its visual achievement.
Great read 🙂 I often looked for literally any reason to put off writing, like cooking and cleaning. I’m slowly trying to change that mindset and so far it seems to be working.
Any time is a good time for a blockbuster film!
I think he’s the best character too! But this article is about supporting characters and Randy’s role in South Park at the moment is “adult protagonist”.
Great article 🙂 I’ve recently gotten into the Bob’s Burgers craze and just couldn’t stop binge watching it!
I’m not a fan of shows like The Simpsons and Family Guy because all of the reasons you pointed out. The families are just so cruel to each other that it’s not even funny. The Belchers are a whole different story. Not only are they insanely hilarious, they also hit me with the “feels” every time a touching moment comes up.
I <3 Tina, she's my hero. How I wish this show was around when I was growing up.
DollaBill, you’re in the ASOIAF hangover stage. Hang on my friend.
A friend of mine tells me that she hates Friends, and I was like “What are you?”
Great article! I had a good time reading it, and I must say that your style of writing is very enjoyable 🙂
I saw the trailer recently and I don’t think I’ll see the movie except if its the only movie I haven’t seen in the cinemas. My 15-year-old sister is a Divergent fan and even she doesn’t think that the trailer looks good.
Really can’t stand this new stream of fantasy “Young Adults” books. I grew up reading Harry Potter and the Inkheart trilogy, but it feels like the standards have dropped low over the years, even though I’m only 20 now.
Last YA series I indulged on was the Hunger Games, which starts well and promising at first but declines by the first chapter of Mockingjay. The movies are great though, especially Catching Fire, but I don’t think that any of these new YA adaptations are gonna cut it like THG does on the big screen.
But we shall see, I might end up being very wrong.
