I will break down the problems with the post OP pastes and explain why it is bullshit.
[quote]A sample: "I work as a script doctor; I have so much dirt on hollywood and the entertainment world...
Skipping that part, because it spoils the problem. If you know what's what, that line alone gives away that the poster is a fraud.
[quote]As this won't be seen by anyone because we're seven hours in: Katy Perry is nothing like you think;
Anyone who has seen any film about Hollywood can suppose that a star is different in person than they portray themselves on screen. But I'll even allow that this person has anecdotal access to Katy.
[quote]Every funny person in hollywood has a joke writer and that includes Mistress Lawrence
Sort of true but not hard to know. I am willing to accept this person works in Hollywood.
[quote]All those cool indie movies with comedians? They're studio movies paid for through complex subsidiaries;
You can garner this by reading the trades, but more pieces are coming together that this poster probably works in Hollywood in some capacity.
[quote]No one is making movies for you - all these super hero films are aimed at China;
Stupid, incorrect generalization. Films are aimed at China no more than they are aimed at Japan or France or Russia or any other major foreign market. And they have been since forever. With villains for major tentpole pictures crafted so as not to offend. In the 80s, the villains du jour were nations where Hollywood couldn't distribute films (Soviet Union, South Africa). Now that list has shrunk to, what, North Korea? So you see bad guys du jour who would offend no one (Neo Nazis, businessmen). China has merely bought the right not to be offended because it has a domestic film market now and can set conditions for access to it. But studios won't want to piss off the Chinese audience anyway so self-censorship would take care of it anyway.
[quote]Not a single studio is worried about irrelevance, Netflix or the like, it's an excuse to be lazy in all honesty;
This is correct. Studios know money is good and going to keep being good. Anxiety about film performance is evergreen; trends come and go and everyone is terrified that the current trends are losing steam. Same ol same ol.
[quote]Scientology are far more ingrained than you dare to imagine;
For this guy to consider this statement worth saying, it tells me a lot. It tells me he is young and new-ish to the business. He was surprised by the extent to which Scientologists work in the business and is presenting it as if it is drama, because it is new to him. It is not new. There are major casting directors, and acting coaches, and lots and lots of actors who are Scientologists. If they are good, they get work. If they are bad, they don't. None of them cause problems. Sometimes an actor will refuse to make a joke about Xaxax so you cut it. Business as usual. Zzz.
[quote]Porn stars turn up in every party;
Very true. I think he goes to parties.
[quote] most those celebrity marriages are shams;
Wow, does he read US Weekly?
[quote]There's a lot of hardcore religion out here;
I don't even know what this means.
[quote]Rape, fuck loads of rape;
He goes to a lot of parties and hears gossip.
[quote]Every studio is planning a kickstarter project;
An exaggeration but another piece of the puzzle.
[quote]A surprising amount of actresses slept there way to the top;
SKY BLUE WATER WET
[quote]Elisabeth Moss is the nicest person you'll ever meet. I could go on for so long.
I am sure he's met E Moss and I am sure this is true, but it tells me even more strongly that he isn't a "script doctor."
But back to the first giveaway that he isn't a "script doctor": he calls himself a script doctor.
No one calls himself a script doctor. And no one who doctors scripts considers himself a script doctor. It is a task, not a career. People who doctor scripts are screenwriters, who take a gig to rewrite a script on a short time frame for a lot of money and no credit. But they do not consider themselves (CONT')
