John and Craig discuss what makes an idea a movie idea, and how those differ from TV ideas, book ideas, and other narrative forms.

Some properties like Charlie's Angels work in more than one medium. We take a few hypothetical projects and explain how they might work as movies.

The conversation then turns to press junkets. Fresh off John's Frankenweenie rounds, we reveal just how the sausage is made when it comes to doing publicity for a movie.

The episode ends with a discussion about David Denby's article from The New Republic, in which he asks the eponymous question: Has Hollywood murdered the movies?

All this, plus Two Cool Things on the 57th episode of Scriptnotes.
