RB's Stage 32 News, Notes, Discussions, and Other Fun Stuff (March 21st, 2014)

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Busy week here on the site. I've highlighted 34 of the most popular and interesting Lounge discussions from the last week. Many of your fellow 32'ers are seeking advice! Please jump in, help out, and participate where you can. Thanks!

In the entertainment world, nostalgia ruled the week. What's old is new again. At PayleyFest, the 10th year anniversary of Lost was celebrated. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind also turned 10 and Vulture offers up a retrospective. Rocky hit Broadway this past week to mostly glowing reviews. Also on the Great White Way, Bullets Over Broadway is killling it in previews. The next sequel to Ghostbusters is back on. And, it was announced that the new Star Wars movie will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi.

In other news, Russell Crowe meets the Pope, a reporter gets a surprise call from Tyler Perry, why your cable bill is grossly unfair, and the latest on the WGA negotiations.

Plus, in the Videos section, some cool trailers, the most meta Seinfeld mashup you've ever seen, and 1001 movies to see before you die (pretty remarkable).

And, finally, I have cinematography, screenwriting, and acting tips from Robert Duvall along with all the Stage 32 planned and proposed meetups from around the globe.

Feel free to discuss any and all in the Comments section below.
