This time, we're talking Action Movies! Kung Fu Hustle, the Raid, Jackie Chan and many more. Also, my prediction about the Captain Marvel movie. Is this the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

TV vs. Movie scripts. What are the differences? Which should you pursue and which is harder to write and get made. Talking about Bob's Burgers, The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, Cheers, Law and Order, Broad City, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and others.

We're talking about chase comedies. Movies mentioned include The Blues Brothers, Midnight Run, Cannonball Run and others. Plus a rant on the current state of comedy.

Talking about the contract. I am not a lawyer and this is just my opinion based on my experiences. Just some tips to put you in the right headspace.

Going from comic book to screenplay or the other way. How are the two formats going to impact your writing? What should you be looking for? How do the two mediums impact the structure of the story itself? This just my opinion on some of the challenges.

This time, let's talk about monsters: vampires, ghosts, werewolves and other supernatural elements. Make sure you explain the rules!

Where do you get your ideas? The secrets finally revealed! Are you creative? You gotta figure it out. If you're not, then no offense.

This is a video about some very basic, nuts and bolts, screenwriting things. Cuts, dissolves, montages, etc. Oh and I forgot voice overs in this take, but like montages, voice overs are exceedingly rare now in screenplays so you should probably stay away. Show, don't tell. Some spoilers for Momento and a couple of others.

We're talking about the Third Act. Does it matter what movies are mentioned? It's ALL movies, screenwriting bros. Empire Strikes Back spoilers, You know the one.

We're talking about the meat of the movie, your second act. Movies mentioned include Inglorious Bastards, Venom, Predator 2 and, of course, James Bond. How many pages? Where can you dump all the slow scenes, why the second act, of course!

Instead of my usual screenwriting video, I'm doing a video about the comic book industry. It's gets a bit ranty and it's just my opinion on things. Here's a link to the article I mentioned: https://icv2.com/articles/columns/view/42172/something-has-change

Spoilers ahead for Black Mirror's Bandersnatch and, one of my personal faves, the movie Predator 2. You've got your premise, now it's time to lay the foundation for the rest of the screenplay.

How do you get started writing your screenplay? All it requires ONE sentence. A few spoilers ahead. Shows and movies talked about: The Orville, James Bond, The Usual Suspects, Throw Mama From the Train, Strangers on a Train, Quantum of Solace, The Blues Brothers and others.

Some tips on writing drama. Not really any spoilers here, but I mention Kramer vs. Kramer, The Godfather, The Great Santini, The Dallas Buyer's Club, Glen Garry Glen Ross and a few others.

Expanding upon my discussion on the Life of Brian, I talk about politics in movies. Is Hollywood shooting itself in the foot by being so one-sided?
