Craig and John play “How Would This Be a Movie?” looking at three articles in the news.

 

A band of pensioners pull off an audacious jewel heist – but is it a Working Title comedy, or something darker? Where does the story begin and end? What’s the MacGuffin?

 

A researcher investigates sleep paralysis and visions of an Italian witch. Is the movie a straightforward horror thriller, and if so, how do you make the audience care about your hero?

 

A revenge porn king is confronted by his victims. But would the movie version be an investigation (like Spotlight), or a tale of personal justice (like Taken)?

 

We also need your suggestions for finding a non-coffeeshop place to write when sharing a studio apartment.
