Just a short post this week - an old article by Craig Mazin, a very talented and insightful role model of mine.
The Friedberg & Seltzer 'phenomenon' has of course well and truly died down. And thank goodness. With each film they released, it felt as if society was decaying before our eyes.
But with the grave of F & S's career, so too lies the grave of the Spoof genre. With distance, I felt it was about time to stop celebrating at the funeral of the former, and participate in the autopsy of the latter. Of course, in an autopsy analogy Luke and I are but 'medical interns', and it was invaluable to have the experienced hands of a professional Pathologist. As a writer for Superhero Movie, this guy was there - fighting in the trenches while all this went down. He knows.
We too, now hope for the eventual return of the humble Spoof.
(EDIT: Friedberg & Seltzer's reign of terror has died... or has it?!)
