Dr. Strngelove isn't reliant on a story, it is complete satire. Its story is just a mission during the Cold War. Again not its main point. I think it's really funny I mean comedy is subjective but "no fighting in the war room"ABED wrote: ↑Sat Nov 14, 2020 9:29 pmDrafts aren't planning, they are the doing. Plans are what you do ahead of time. No, the outlines are the blueprints. Blueprints are used as a cheap way to see what a building will look like before the actual expensive and time consuming part of the process commences, but sometimes plans change even when construction is underway. At that point, it's not planning, it's building even though the structure isn't complete. Your analogy is very flawed.
And well structured stories aren't necessarily entertaining. The point is to entertain the audience.Tv and Movies are different yes. However so are books, manga, etc. My point is well structured stories of any medium share that quality of having a clear direction
It wasn't funny at all. It wasn't interesting. The story is awful. No compelling characters. Making a point isn't telling a story. Kubrick is highly overrated and his best movies are ones where he tells a story - the first part of Full Metal Jacket, Spartacus, and The Shining.Dr. Strangelove, one of Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces which is a hilarious black comedy about the cold war was terrible? How on Earth can I trust your opinion lol (joke different taste is fine. I sincerely can't believe you watched it and didn't see something incredible but hey no biggie)
I got your point, but writing and planning are two distinctly different activities.
No, that's writing. Planning is what you do before an activity.They are. Drafts are a writer, writing out their story and thinking of the ideas along the way. They aren't meant to be seen because they aren't the full story/final product. They are the author going in with their ideas and working it out....planning.
"mein Fuhrer, I can walk-"
I think you went in expecting the wrong thing. it's a remarkably smart comedy that really stands the test of time.
Do you think planning is exclusive to simply talking or thinking? Do you not see notes as planning? Drafts are writing....but it's not exclusionary.
That blueprint point was the silliest thing I have read. Blueprints are yes, something Civil Engineers work with....however you act like you have never heard that applied to stories or anything else.
Ok well I am entertained by rich storytelling and good planning. That's what I enjoy. However some audience members like other things. Some stories aren't about entertaining someone. They have a message that they want to tell. Some authors write what they want and hope as a bonus people gravitate to their work so they are paid. Artistic integrity and what not.
