No that’s not Hollywood BS.
If your script isn’t formatted properly, it won’t even be looked at.
That’s what I read.Ã‚Â If the beginning is not formatted correctly they will toss them in the "cr@pper."
Deliveryman, if you get this message first, can you read my opening scene in "Is this remotely close?"
I need an expert’s opinion, not that I am calling the other’s critique “bush,” I am just new in here and don’t really know who is most knowledgable.
Please Deliveryman, rip it to shreds!Ã‚Â I eat this stuff up like a sponge!Ã‚Â And any critique you give me I will indeed listen–that is if you are an “expert” at this.Ã‚Â Have you sold any yet?Ã‚Â Would I know any of them?Ã‚Â I love film, and I love dialogue!Ã‚Â You ever see a film called “Tape”?Ã‚Â The whole thing being filmed in that one motel room was awesome!Ã‚Â
I am so sick of special effects taking over the movie industry!Ã‚Â If it is done correctly, I love special effects!Ã‚Â But when it’s “Starship Troopers” special effects, and I am not blasting the writing, I rather liked the writing actually.Ã‚Â But it is how the creatures looked.Ã‚Â It was too unbelievable for me.
I will always love "Alien."Ã‚Â That film scared the bejeezes outta me!Ã‚Â I was ten years old and my mother didn’t even want to take me to see it, but I badgered her into it–boy am I glad I did!!!Ã‚Â When we got home that night, she made me go into the house first, and it was freaking pitch black outside!Ã‚Â We entered through the back door, my room was on the opposite side of the house.Ã‚Â I got to my room in three seconds flat, flipping on five lights in the process!!!Ã‚Â I then had nightmares for two weeks after that!Ã‚Â I had two dogs sleeping with me on my bed and yet I still hid under my covers sweating my @ss off!?Ã‚Â I remember thinking that if I looked past the sheets, I would be staring directly at the glutinous-toothed Xenophobe!
I love scary films, I just haven’t seen one in a real long time!Ã‚Â Although, I did like the ending of “Saw,” didn’t see that coming–I love that!!!
Sorry, I’m rambling.Ã‚Â I should probably save some of this for the screenplays huh?
