  1. So my spec "Goodnight, Moon Thieves" got an 8 out of 10 by an anonymous reviewer on the Black List site. It's obviously not as good as getting a 9 or 10, but it still seems like I should be able to leverage an 8 to get more people reading it. Any suggestions?

      Sadly... I've been trying to get a script read more on there as well that is getting great reviews and it just seems like nobody notices...

      Tsunami scenes are great.. the rest is very lifetime.

  3. So who's going to write the movie about how we're all going to pay more taxes while our elected leaders just gave themselves a pay raise?

  4. Just now realized there's no Brit List this year. Sad.

      Didn't they lose their assistant to a spec sale?

      Yeah or Voltron which I believe is from 2007 and also by Marks.

      Hopefully you guys update this thread or start a new one when we figure out what the two scripts are.

  8. What's the word on SPEC SCOUT http://specscout.com

      Ran by the guy who runs Its On the Grid.. that's about all I know. Been told by others in the industry its just another site trying to steal writers hard earned dollars.

  10. Universal has their "For Your Consideration" screenplay page up:

      They take down this links after awards season so it's a good idea to save them to your hard drive.

  11. Posted my real time thoughts on Epsilon and Black Box in Coverage section. What next? Untitled McCormick Cops script or Rockets Red Glare? Or read Hello Ladies for fun?

      Yeah man. You're reviews are top notch. Keep it up.

  12. Young and Hungry 2012 list up, wooooo!

      Yeah this is definitely the lower rung of lists out there. I think Variety does a similar one called 10 screenwriters to watch. But it's only 10 and usually they have a TON of heat. Not just a bit from one spec.

  13. Big Wes fan but have yet to see Moonrise Kingdom and struggled with the opening pages of the screenplay but -- eventually -- got sucked in and couldn't put it down.

  14. 'Dead in the Water' is the only ScriptShadow-reviewed script ever that hasn't ended up in the File Exchange. Somone must have this...

    1. Penelope

      Penelope

      Yeah, it's an old script. On my hard drive it's dated September 2008.

  15. I've been away for this place for way too long. It's good to back.....Now where can I get Tape 4 and Man of Tomorrow? :)

  16. Big weekend for Scotland. New Nessie pics and Andy Murray takes the gold.

  17. A 1/3 of all US movie ticket buyers have dropped off the grid this weekend? Anyone here actually planning on seeing anything?

      Nope, saw two last week. Taking the weekend off.

  19. Trailer for Jack Reacher looks good. Doesn't look anything like what I remember from the screenplay for One Shot...? (granted, it's been a while since I read that one).

    1. Penelope

      Penelope

      Title won't change and the music is trailer junk much like Looper's (although the latest trailer is good). They are doing orchestra scores this week for Jack Reacher.

  20. "Looper" looks insane!

  21. Question for working screenwriters here: What would be your key advice for career longevity? Ie. What do you think the difference is between the folk who get one big sale and/or a Black List mention and then flame out forever, and the folk who are actually putting their kids through college with screenwriting?

  22. Big ups to K Ryans for this weeks spec haul. Keep 'em comin'...

  23. Anybody else read Wheeler Dealer? Can't upload my watermarked copy.

  24. The River was pretty good. We shall see...

  25. So, Cormac McCarthy just sold a spec script.
