re: Did Jon Hamm miss his wave? - JW
I've worked with him twice and he is very reserved and to himself on set. But a pro. He was drinking when were making "Million Dollar Arm" ... Disney and i'm sure Jon was hoping that his first leading role would be more successful. Didn't seem to resonate with audiences though i think it's a decent...

re: Vacation (2015) the worst movie i've ever seen - JW
the worst movie ? it made 100M worldwide. That's a bit of a reach. The early script was one of the funniest I've ever read, but the directors were first timers and tinkered with it during filming too much. ...

re: The Movie Business in Louisiana. Any thoughts on its possible comeback? - JW
Another thing to think about is Georgia has major studio infrastructure and corporate involvement from the likes of chic fil a and Home Depot. There is a reason marvel has set up shop in Fayetteville and at Pinewood Studios .... plenty of states have had great Incentives like Ohio and Kentucky but t...

re: The Movie Business in Louisiana. Any thoughts on its possible comeback? - JW
Again .... it's not dead and is very busy in New Orleans. As long as the existing credits stay in place the state will continue to be a destination for television and film. Georgia has become oversaturated and you will see films return gradually because of the overflow and returning confidence of th...

re: The Movie Business in Louisiana. Any thoughts on its possible comeback? - JW
The industry is doing fine in New Orleans with at least six major TV series and one large feature (a $60m fox movie called underwater). It's an arms race to find good crew and every local crafts person should be employed. That said the days of multiple tent poles shooting at once are likely done bec...

re: This year's AA nominees for Best Picture - JW
I've seen all 9 nominees ...... La La Land will certainly win, but Moonlight and HOHW are excellent as well. Not sure why the subtle disdain for Hidden Figures, but it's not a fluke that it finished in the 90's on Rotten Tomatoes or made $100 M domestically and counting. And to dismiss it as a b...

re: Margot Robbie to play Tanya Harding in forthcoming shitty movie - JW
she is producing it, so obviously believes in the script. And it's a dark comedy directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) Not to mention the budget is less than $15M, so not a big gamble for all involved. ...
