Second weekend in box office performance[edit]

Hey, It looks like you reversed some changes I made to the Second weekend in box office performance page. I recognize that the referenced source (Box Office Mojo) states the percentage changes and those are used in the article, but the percentage changes are wrong, or at best inconsistent. If you do the math yourself, the percentage change from the first week to the second week listed on Box Office Mojo is not accurate. It is possible that the percentage changes are being calculated differently, but then the way in which the percentage change is being calculated should be explained, and it is not on the Box Office Mojo website. (talk) 02:25, 7 July 2017 (UTC), I see what you mean now. Still, I don't think we should change from the source at this time. Let me email Box Office Mojo to see if they can review these numbers and hopefully update them so we can too. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 11:14, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

The Beguiled[edit]

I left an adequate explanation as to why I removed that section on The Beguiled page, yet you still have threatened to ban me from contributing. I believe that this claim isn't deemed worthy to be included on Wikipedia because it is not fact or universal truth. It is a small consensus from a few journalists on the internet. These claims may potentially be contributing to the defamation of Sofia Coppola, and as I said, Wikipedia is NOT the place for that. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stiff036 (talkcontribs) 19:58, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

@Stiff036: Content on Wikipedia does not have to be "fact or universal truth" to be included. Wikipedia summarizes coverage about a topic, and the coverage for The Beguiled has included whitewashing. See reference #23, which lists multiple reliable sources writing about this. Counterpoints to this criticism, if also reliably sourced, can be included. The claim of defamation is inapplicable here; The Guardian is who has reported that Coppola was criticized for whitewashing. Please avoid related legal comments directed at anyone and see WP:NLT.

Original Screenplay ET by Johnny Colafrancesco[edit]


I am rather new to writing on here and was responding to the credit given for the original screen play To ET. I am surprised that anyone remembered this (or even knew about it)and it was actually very accurate.I had named the script PI after the mathematical equation because it was the only way the child could understand and communicate to the alien at the time.I believe I was 14 years old and had just learned it myself and based the kid on myself as I guess most would do when learning the craft. I had submitted the script to several groups including Creative Artist and my lawyer was previously my athletic coach from high school. I think he kept a copy because we were all stunned at the success of the script and movie but I was young and didn't have interest in pursuing and the commitment of a lawsuit. The movie followed the script fairly close especially the part of 'phone home' which was the part I had envisioned being the most memorable. I guess the fact that the Sputnik has gone to space the year I was born and being influenced by the space race plus having relatives at the Huntsville space center was strong motivation to write a script about space. I believe we spent the previous summer in Rome and on the flight I sat with a group of engineers who I think were a part of creating the Atari game company. I was a kid and figured they were just a bunch of hippies. It was an exciting time and we found out years later the plane next to ours was the one the bank robbers that inspired the movie Dog Day Afternoon had requested to escape. I really appreciate the memories and it was somewhat funny that I had the pleasure of meeting Harrison Ford & Melissa Mathison at a restaurant near their home on 95th and Madison in Manhattan. Another of many coincidences was the agent at Creative Artist represented Carlo Rombaldi who did ET and was my uncles partner in Rome Carlos is funny how this has all come together over the years.2602:30A:2E42:80:712B:648E:3311:63DC (talk) 09:26, 11 July 2017 (UTC)Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

Thanks for the 'talk'[edit]

Thanks for leaving me a massage. And it's okay if my edit didn't comply with wiki's policies and thus you've had to remove it.

Seriously I'm here to help as well as learn as much as I can.

The Baby Driver page was messed up and believe me when I say this: I actually tried and somewhat did manage to clean it up rather than get into one of those talk-fights with other people (in fact this is my first talk), I tried to clean it up as much as I could, and with real not personal infos. I think I did a lot of it, especially the first opening and mid sections since that still remains unchanged, I guess it wasn't harmful.

All the links you see on the top section of that page came from me. But I, myself personally, work and have worked in random Productions (mostly small-time) so I can at least tell a thing or two for sure. (aak 17:51, 11 July 2017 (UTC)) — Preceding unsigned comment added by AAK94 (talkcontribs)

AAK94, the BFI source works! Thanks. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 20:07, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

I see what you did there[edit]

There are plenty of film articles. like A film that had so many national companies producing it. but you just edited it to be called An American film. Don't be double standard. Stop changing the facts to how you like. Stop being a mafia keyboard warrior on the internet. it's just parasite and cancer — Preceding unsigned comment added by Harper9979 (talkcontribs) 15:38, July 21, 2017 (UTC)
