Default Will you consider rating my blcklst hosted script?

Not sure what the situation is on posting links to uploaded scripts. Still awaiting my first paid review. So, in the meantime...

Title: American Insane

Logline: When his brother-in-law is jailed for shooting the President of the United States, a small-town lawyer finds himself to be the only one willing to take up the defense against the government prosecution.

There have been four successful attempts made on the lives of sitting U.S. Presidents. Of the assassins themselves, two were brought to stand trial, and only one ever spoke in his own defense. Charles Guiteau was that one.

Thanks. Enjoy.

Btw, am I the only one that searches uploaded scripts on the blacklist site by changing the number at the end of the URL?

Can't comment on the script as you have to join 'n all and I'm not a joiner. Your logline is confusing. You seem to say Charles Guiteau's brother in law is defending him Then you seem to say Charles Guiteau is defending himself. A small-town lawyer, the only one willing -- is a movie cliche. And unnecessary - if he's the brother-in-law he already has motive to defend him. But then the family tie motive is also a cliche. And I should think lawyers would be fighting each other to have such a high profile case. Presumably its Charles Guiteau's story as he's the one you've named. I think you're saying: Charles Guiteau is defended by his lawyer brother-in-law with an insanity defense to the assassination of the President?

I was hoping other writers with scripts uploaded would also post links in this thread, but I guess...not?

I did get a significant number of impressions off posting here, but no downloads yet.

Probably because you didn't make it all that clear about your "hope". Maybe you can ask the mods to edit the title of the thread, or maybe you can edit your initial post to include others.

EDIT:

Second rating came back a 5. Pulled the script rather than let it run a second month.

You can post contest wins in the info section for your script. That might help attract downloads. Of course I noticed that After I uploaded mine. I'm so dyslexic, duh...

Flight Risk by Mike Janowiak and me received its Blacklist review yesterday -- a 7. (That is defined on the long Blacklist thread as meaning "better than 75% of what's out there." )

Era: Present Day
Locations: Salt Lake City
Budget: Low
Genre: Comedy
Pages: 99
Logline:
When a private eye with trust issues is late paying off a debt to a loan shark incurred by his con-artist mother, he is forced to take on a job to track down a woman in need of medical attention. After recovering his target, complications arise when she claims to be his guardian angel in need of getting back to heaven.
Strengths:
Overall entertaining and charming script filled with many funny and poignant moments, humorous dialogue, and several well-drawn characters.
