Nearly 30 years ago, Bill Preston and Ted Logan stepped into a time-traveling phone booth and wreaked havoc on history. But in the process, they taught us an important lesson: Be excellent to each other.

2017 black list

Like with many aspects of Hollywood and the film industry, you can’t take the annual “Black List” too seriously. The survey of the “most liked” unproduced screenplays can be a valuable tool, a way for studios and filmmakers to discover talented writers and brilliant screenplays. It can also be political and silly, as a glance at previous years’ lists can prove. But the fact remains that Black List movies have often been critical and financial juggernauts.
