I'm not even getting into an argument about my writing ability on a single screenplay.

i'm not attacking you, i'm simply replying to what i feel is garbage. i read your script, i read your self-proclaimed success and I weighed in on the discussion.

it's hard for me to believe that this material got made. i look at your writing. i look at my writing. i look at the axioms. i conclude that you can't possible be sold or the axioms can't possible be right.

and i hate axioms.

ditto. That's what I had in mind.

I wrote a TV spec as a speed test in a week and the result was unsurprisingly in need of a lot of work.

Now I take as long as it needs to be written, which is pretty much what I did before. I'll worry about deadlines when someone provides me with a paying job with one.

what cracks me up tigre, is the way you talk tigre -- you're obviously from another country, and the little things in your script and your posts are 'off' because you don't get the subtle translations.

perfect example, your repeated statement that you told your entourage ' you only gave 50%'. . . who says that?

the script is like a bad B-MOVIE written by a foreigner with a cliche narrative he learned through other bad movies, of the american pysche. and your entire 'game' is off.

come back with another user name. . . like JOHN WAYNE.

Anyone else got the feeling you've tuned in to episode 5 of a 10 part series here?

It's easy to see who the real writers are on this forum.

Just check out the amount of stupid posts some people have made since joining. The time spent on the forum could have been spent writing scripts, don't you think?

If you want to have a go at someone, grow up or at least do it via PM.

Your negative attitudes ruin the threads for everyone else. Or are you too selfish and ignorant to see that these forums are meant for sharing knowledge?
