Top 5 Screenwriters
Trivia: Light & Dark Movie Trivia
Celebrating This Month: Florence Pugh

Get your pencils out, and get ready to being your research. This week on CinemaJaw we are taking a seat at the typewriter as we take a look at our Top 5 Screenwriters! This is one of those topics I cannot believe we haven’t done before. Joining us for the top 5, as well as a double dose of reviews of films written by Diablo Cody and Charlie Kaufman (Lisa Frankenstein, and Orion and the Dark respectively) we are joined by a guy who does his homework.

Derick McDuff is the host of Underrated Movie Podcast, where each week they take a look at a film that might just be underappreciated, and tease out just why that is.


So take a break from the next great screenplay that you’re writing and listen to a podcast.
