  1. This is your quarterly reminder to back up all of your writing files! Cloud, jump drive, external HD, etc. Do it now!

      2003 was when I started learning. Started taking it seriously in 2007. Had two major losses of material, but

      No not me. I learned my lesson about 6 years ago. Now I cloud, 2 jump drives, an external and my phone.

      Keep doing what you can Siv. I get what you mean about productivity. Get it George! I'm coming back after a year off, so I get where you're coming from.

  6. Hope NBC renews Trial & Error tomorrow. Should do a Crocodile Dundee 2, and have the group's next case be in NY.

      I didn't mind the somewhat light hearted fair, not every show has to be dark (though i'm told otherwise)

      I'm so glad they saved Timeless. I'm the only one I think, but damn I'm glad.

  8. "Their Finest" is a really entertaining movie about filmmaking/screenwriting. At 87% on RT. Go see it!

      Never heard of it before, but I'm intrigued:

      TRAILER!

  9. Since it's pilot filming season, here's a great video from Michael Tucker on why Breaking Bad is the perfect pilot

  10. Testing out the black list. Anyone have a really good experience with the site?

      An 8, two 7's and a 6. Final thought? Consistency confusion. The 8 versus the 6 was as if the 6 read the praises of the 8 and decided those were the worst parts.

      Thanks for all the info! We're trying it out just to see right now. I think it all comes down to personal tastes, which really isn't a super objective way to look at something. If you're going from an 8 to a 3, I have to imagine that the 3 reviewer is looking at that 8 saying "no way" and just going in with a IMUSTBREAKYOU attitude.

  13. So this GASP pitch that Par just bought... it's SEA OF LIFE with the gender reversal in the roles. So why not mention that movie?

  14. After reading several scripts from the black list, two things have become clear: It's breathe, not breath and use your damn spell check. Unreal.

      I do like re-reading stuff I've written. Not just because I think I'm damn good :P, but because my training and years spent doing blind submissions made me paranoid about any errors submitted. It's probably just me, but when writers don't re-read or spell check or grammar proof their own work, it makes me think they don't care enough. I dunno, I agree with you 100%

      I'd like to start reviewing all of scriptshadow's script reviews, checking out the film and seeing if no one really does know anything.

      I thought they were just given the scenario and that there was no script?

  20. Do you have any recommendations of scripts where the protagonists alienates everyone? I.e. like Jack Nicholson's character in As Good as it gets?

  21. There's something crushingly confusing about reading great specs and learning from them, only to see them actualized in the theaters and get railed over by audiences and critics alike. Read: Nobody. Knows. Anything.

      Andrew - I don't?

      Ben - yesh. And he continues to tell us. I'm talking Passengers and Collateral.

  24. Great article on why This is Us is doing well, Nielsen-wise http://www.vox.com/2016/11/29/13769520/this-is-us-ratings-nbc

      It's a good show. Cheesey, yes, but quite good. And it massively fills that Parenthood, Friday Night Lights gap
