Re: Star Wars Ep 8

Naturally I feel guilty and have to apologize to JJ. I like some of his films, and he's a good director, but he needs help with story and character development. I honestly believe he decided on a...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

This isn't Rian Johnson's fault, it's JJ's. If JJ had something interesting to say about Snoke or Rey's origins, then he should have said it in his damn movie! You can't just mystery box critical...

Re: Experience with the Blcklst and first evaluation

If your script is indeed boring, why would a reader recommend it to a higher up? Of course he/she'll give you a 5. Like any readers you encounter, your top priority, your Alpha and Omega, is always...

Re: Referring to scenes from other movies

But this is just how so many good professional scripts are being written. They read well because there IS a narrator vibe. It builds a connection to the reader, to immerse him/her in this world. Just...

Re: Passengers

I think NMS Stevens has some personal vendetta against Sony or Spaihts. it was (like Immortan Joe) MEDIOCRE! But not atriocious.

The cool sets makes it a fun viewing experience, and the characters...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I felt the exact same way. I wasn't feeling these original main characters the way I did with the The Matrix for eg. Blind guy was good, though. But they were all missing heart. Jones character would...

Unhappy Re: Ghostbusters Trailer

The script to me lacked epic in almost everyway. For eg. Our first scare in the original was inside the NYC Public Library. One of the largest such institutions in the US -- awesome location! And our...

Re: 9/10 on Blacklist with three 10/10 subscores: How can I maximize myself in 2016?

The evaluations were basically pointless. I got two good notes to switch the order of two scenes. I got all that for $500. What a deal!

Again, I'm not saying it's a scam, but it does bleed the...

Re: 9/10 on Blacklist with three 10/10 subscores: How can I maximize myself in 2016?

The Black List isn't a scam. But for the 95% of writers who don't find any success there, it sure FEELS like one. I can't imagine a screenwriting resource that has ever been setup this way. I mean,...

Re: 9/10 on Blacklist with three 10/10 subscores: How can I maximize myself in 2016?

Congratz, Jared!

I'd query the heck out of it with "Black List 9" in the subject line.

I actually love the Logline. It might that have something to do with fact that I'm also a young man named...

Re: Nicholl 2016

Probably same reason a sci-fi never won best picture. In good sci-fi, you need like 50% story world / 50% character depth. In dramas you need like 10% story world / 90% character. It's obvious why...

Re: Nicholl 2016

That also struck me as odd. It's like they're anti-loglines -- a one sentence summary to bore a reader to death. At least they're well-written scripts. Some could be made on a $50,000 budget or less.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

The biggest issue with the BL is that for 95% of writers, it doesn't actially give you anything in return. That's why it feels like a con job. I've personally spent $500 on the BL, and have received...

Re: Star Trek Beyond

So true. There's no purpose or grand theme to any of the past two films. They're just action movies in space. Same with Force Awakens. There's no real story to tell. District 9, even Avatar had a...

Why haven't they gone wide? They certainly have the quality. It's great writing.

Re: Star Trek Beyond

It was entertaining, but utterly forgettable. Like Nemesis, it tried to be cool, but it did it the wrong way. Star Trek can't be cool by inserting motorcycle chases and using Beastie Boys music to...

Re: Thank you Done Deal Pro!

It's not DD's fault, but I miss the volume of pros we once had. It made interacting more meaningful. For eg. Pros used to review opening pages in the advanced section. Maybe it never actually...

Bomb-Hur

Is there a site that takes bets on flops? Honestly, I knew for certain this would bomb eons ago. I mean, CGI-obsessed Hollywood remaking a classic? What could go wrong?

As for the film, it was a...

He wrote the absolutely awesome Shadow 19, which got him the Prometheus gig.

Re: Blcklst score - 7. Now what?

Hers can't be the same 'cause Spaihts is a big time screenwriter and she's just trying to break in.

Re: Suicide Squad

It was written in six weeks and it shows. Dumb, cliché plot. Utterly dull antagonists. Probably the worst bad guy (girl) I've ever seen in a comic book film. I think the key grip had more depth.

Re: BLACKLIST score - 7. Now what?

You need at least three reviews to get a consensus. So I'm afraid you'll have to blow another 150 bucks.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer

Finally saw it today. Like most have said, it was funny, but what it lacked was the actual scares / fright of the original. This felt like a cartoon with all its over-the-top CGI and gags. I don't...

The logline was workshopped here on DD Pro last year. It got me reads before. But it just seems like mentioning the finals placement is hurting its chances.

Well it didn't win so it confirms my...
