Battleship Pretension is a movie discussion podcast started in 2007 by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Since then, we’ve done live comedy shows, written reviews, commentaries and more.
Battleship Pretension is a film discussion show and a film review website founded by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Beginning in March 2007, Battleship Pretension the show (known to fans simply as “BP”) embodies the type of laidback, free-flowing conversations had by lovers of film around the world. Battleship Pretension the website is dedicated to being a destination for those seeking worthwhile opinions on current releases, be they foreign, independent, studio pictures, theatrical, home video releases, etc. From its meager beginnings in Los Angeles, Battleship Pretension has amassed a worldwide audience and readership. From Germany to Korea to Australia, people have tuned in to share in Tyler and David’s love of film. As Battleship Pretension’s following continues to grow, the purpose remains the same: Reach out to the international cinephile community, invite them to join in the discussion and perhaps even start one of their own.
Was King in “dire financial straits” when he wrote The Shining? I thought Carrie had been a big success.
Despite the success of his previous novels the comment about his financial situation is in reference to Jack Torrance as a cathartic vehicle; perhaps King wasn’t in “dire financial straits” writing The Shining. But, his character, Jack Torrance is a reflection of King’s life and experiences at the time.
Not that I know for experience, but you might have overestimated how much money writers make….
Thanks for watching!
