You guys should totally follow my movie review blog.
If you want. I’ll probably be reblogging it on this blog anyway but still… also, I’ve been super lazy with it in the past but I’m going to be more consistent with it now. I’m reviewing The Pack and Dream House this weekend.
Finished one outline (the ghost story one). Still working on the other one. Writing a beat sheet for another idea. Still have to finish Need.
Read the Young Adult script by Diablo Cody. Liked it. But I always like scripts about damaged, cynical characters with an attitude and/or drinking problem. I think Charlize Theron will be good in the lead; it kind of reminded me of Bad Teacher, but… quirkier and a little more dramatic? This is Diablo Cody. Now I’m reading The Grey. Think it’ll make a better movie than script. Not that the script is bad, I’m actually quite enjoying it… there’s just a lot going on/lots of character introduced at once… stuff that’s easier to keep track of onscreen.
OH! Okay. The one thing that DID really annoy me about Young Adult (and this is both something I’ve heard screenwriters should avoid doing AND a pet peeve). So many of the characters’ names started with the same letter. The same TWO letters actually. Mavis. Matt. Mary Ellen. There were some scenes where I had to go back and re-read who was talking because I really do read screenplays vertically and go pretty fast… so it was annoying to have to constantly REALLY read the full names of people talking. Other than that, good job, Diablo Cody!
Shut up and watch the original then.
Yeah, it’s annoying and unoriginal but they’re not replacing the old ones with the remakes. The classics will still be there. So don’t give the remake your money; call it a day. Simple enough.
Your rants change nothing.
