Best of luck.


Yeah this is basically how I see it. The next round will cut the pool down from a few hundred to 8 or 9 so I don't exactly expect to make that cut, but it's always nice when someone tells you you're funny =)

Princess Bride is a very goofy fairy tale-type movie. Kinda like Shrek, but with real people and less traditional fairy tale. I haven't seen it in forever - so that might not be completely accurate. It had Andre the Giant, that I remember.

Anything with Andre the Giant has to be awesome. ;-D

Congratulations. Even though I get the impression your script is confusing, the critic's comments are more confusing. :-b Seriously, that's excellent, keep at it. ;-D

Have you been living in a cave? :-D

Didn't you ever wonder where this quote came from: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father prepare to die.

#155 rated movie on IMDB. Don't exactly agree with the Shrek comparison. Extremely witty and definitely funny. You should rent it.

You are probably a 90's, not an 80's kid. Boooooo!

I have no idea if I will every do anything with them - but thanks to moneys allocated through the economic stimulus plan, I did enter one into the BlueCat screenwriting competition this year - mostly because on top of being entered, they give you several pages of notes and comments. I thought it would be nice to see where I actually stand in terms of whether or not they are any good. I mean, I make myself laugh, but that's not terribly difficult. I could be awful at it and really would have no idea - it will be nice to see what someone outside my immediate family and friends and college screenwriting classmates actually think of one of them.

Any one else?


I do. I haven't heard of BlueCat. Coverage is free?

I'm working on a crime drama right now. Enter yours in Nicholl's! But then again, if you don't, less competition for me!
All kidding aside, what do you enjoy writing? I steer towards drama.
