The concept for the series began as Stan Lee's answer to fans' questions about what super power he would like to have: luck. After starting up POW!, he and his team considered making a TV series based on such a super power. Neil Biswas then took Lee's original idea and wrote the pilot episode, developing the central character and the world around him. With the help of his writing team, Biswas developed the mythology for the first series: Stan Lee's original idea of a lucky charm that is given to a compulsive gambler became an ancient bracelet that Harry Clayton wakes up with on his wrist after a night spent with the mysterious Eve. With his gambling addiction having cost him his wife and daughter, and being in debt for thousands of pounds to a casino owner, Clayton soon begins to use the bracelet to his own advantage.
Zac Efron made some giant strides in shedding his Disney High School Musical image with this romantic drama where he plays a former Marine on a mission. In The Lucky One even gets some tastefully done romantic sex scenes with co-star Taylor Schilling.While in Iraq on a military style mission Efron finds a picture of a pretty woman with the inscription 'stay safe' on the back. Without thinking it didn't help the Marine who had it before, he takes the picture and credits it as a good luck charm which kept him safe in a nasty fire fight. After discharge, Efron makes it his mission to find whose picture it is.The mission takes him to the Louisiana bayou country where he finds Schilling together with her young son Riley Stewart and a most jealous ex-husband Jay Ferguson who is a deputy sheriff. She's living with her grandmother Blythe Danner and the photograph belonged to her brother who was in Iraq the same time as Efron.There's a fine line between romance and stalking and Efron may have erased it. He tries to tell Schilling, but she just assumes he is answering an advertisement she put around town about her needing help with the family business which is a dog kennel. She hires him and nature takes its course.Efron and Schilling hit it off for themselves on the screen and for the audience watching. Some real nice cinematography of Louisiana in the fall also distinguishes The Lucky One.Will this be luck for life? You have to watch The Lucky One to find out. I will say Zac Efron was lucky to do this film.
Logan (Zac Efron) is a marine in Iraq. He is drawn to a photo of Beth (Taylor Schilling) with the words "keep safe" written on the back. As he examines the photo, an explosion occurs just where he was before. Everybody considers the photo a lucky charm. He returns home after 3 tours suffering from PTSD. He decides to track down Beth. He can't quite explain his reason for coming when she just assumes that he's looking for a job at her dog kennel. Beth thinks that he's crazy but her grandmother Ellie (Blythe Danner) gives him the job anyways. Beth is divorced from angry jealous police deputy Keith Clayton (Jay R. Ferguson) and they have a son together. Soon, Logan befriends Ellie and the boy while annoying Beth. The photo is the property of Beth's brother who didn't make it back from Iraq.I like Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling individually. They are able to salvage some chemistry. The problem is that the whole setup feels forced. It's not simply the way it's written but also the way it's shot. Everything feels slightly fake. This is a Nicholas Sparks after all. The biggest problem is that Logan is a little too precious with his secret about the photo. It's better if he stops trying to tell it and leave it as an internal struggle. Some things are better left to the audience's imagination or even without reason. Nevertheless, I like both leads and I can't help but pull for them.
I seriously LOVED this movie! I was surprised because with Zack Effron as the lead, I was thinking it just wouldn't work! I mean, how could the star from HSM pull of this role? He's a little farcical at times. But he wasn't anything like any of his previous movies! He was so different! He's definitely making that change from "child popstar" actor into a real adult actor! He did a great job and I really loved this movie!!
I really haven't really been the biggest fan of Zack Effron, but I think I'm being too judgmental on the kid (I say kid and I'm pretty sure he's older than me LOL). I will admit, seeing some of the movies he's played in (aside from HSM), he's a pretty darn good actor!
Johnson has said of writing the script he wanted it to be character based rather than focus on the mechanics of time-travel. He drew inspiration from movies such as The Terminator, 12 Monkeys, and Witness. One of the best screenplays to read if you love mixing sci-fi with ironic humor and time-travel.
Three of the best script writers in Hollywood collaborated for this modern classic. Beattie originally had the idea for the movie aged seventeen while riding in the back of a cab in his native Sydney. He then worked up a two-page treatment called The Last Domino, which he turned into a screenplay. Later he was lucky enough to be put in touch with Darabont and then Mann who both contributed revisions.
Seltzer was commissioned by the producer, Harvey Bernhard, to write a movie about the Antichrist after Bernhard was given the idea by a friend, Bob Munger. It took Seltzer exactly one year to write the screenplay and it would go on to be one of the most iconic horror movies of all time.
This script was born purely out of budgetary restrictions as writers Whannell and Wan deliberately wanted to write a horror film as cheaply as possible. One that they could finance themselves. Inspired by low-budget movies such as Pi and The Blair Witch Project, they decided on the concept of two actors, one room, and one dead body. Easily one of the best screenplays to read for horror writers.

Hi, I read a commentary by Robert Towne, who said that the narrative skills in older movies is superior. He said more about how it costs the characters a lot to do the right thing in them, which makes it more believable, enjoyable, and funny. For this reason I think Billy Wilder is essential reading, especially:SOME LIKE IT HOT and THE APARTMENTHe was able to make the story turn on very simple plot-points without the need to thread endless spaghetti.
Back in 2015, Amazon Prime Video was the first subscription-based streaming service to introduce the ability to download movies and TV shows for offline viewing on mobile devices. For travelers and users with limited data plans that like to watch films and episodes on the go, this was a godsend. Amazon has updated its apps many times since then, but the process remains relatively the same.
Just about every movie and TV show is available to download through Amazon Prime Video, but that only applies to members that pay. That means primary Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video subscribers are the lucky ones. Unfortunately, Amazon Household members are left out in the cold, with only a handful of downloadable titles available. More on that later.
Before you begin downloading anything, you'll want to check the download quality first and adjust it to your preference or needs. To check, open the "Settings" tab (on iOS) or tap the hamburger menu and then "Settings" (Android). Next, tap on either "Streaming & Downloading" (iOS) or "Stream & Download" (Android).
If you have an iPhone, there's a toggle for "Allow highest quality when on Wi-Fi," which does exactly as it sounds. No matter what quality you pick above it, whenever a download occurs on Wi-Fi, it will always download in the "Best" quality.
Android also has an "Always Ask" option available, which is enabled by default. That means that every time you go to download a video, you'll be able to verify or change the quality on a case-by-case basis. If you only care about one video quality setting, you can disable this to download content right away.
There are a few more settings you should be aware of in regards to downloading. First, whether or not downloads will happen over cellular data. In the "Streaming & Downloading" or "Stream & Download" menu, "Download on Wi-Fi Only" will be enabled by default. If you have unlimited data or significant data allotments and don't care about using it, by all means, toggle this off if you want.
Android users who have SD cards will have one more option to think about: "Download Videos to SD Card." If you don't want to waste internal storage, this is a good idea. Once you have some titles downloaded, you'll also be able to set it so that the videos are automatically deleted when the SD card is removed.
With all of the settings out of the way, now it's just a matter of downloading the movies and TV shows you want to watch offline. Tap on the title you want to download, and in the description page for it, you will see the "Download" button front and center. The exact placement of the buttons may vary on different devices or operating systems, but it is fairly self-explanatory.
Movies will just have the "Download" button while TV shows will have the option to download an entire season if it's included in Prime. If you just want to download individual episodes, you can do that too.
If you plan on traveling overseas to another country, you'll want to download content locally in the US before you embark on your trip because the same content you may want to watch may not be available in the region you'll be visiting, so you may not be able to download certain titles while there. 2b1af7f3a8
