Excellent Script Credited Review
For some reason medieval fantasy and comedy seem to go hand in hand. Perhaps because of "Shrek" this seems like a can't miss formula. The rarity of these films on screen seem to make the spec scripts all that more original. Firesteel is no different and perhaps represents the best of the bunch. A few criticisms: Von Goth returns too early in the story. I'd like to get some semblance of everything before you throw in this twist. Perhaps moving it after we see what has become of Firesteel's son. See if you can eliminate the (MORE's) by tweaking the margins. Blackmartin reminded me of "Donkey". I enjoyed everything else in the script. Favorite things/lines: "Oh, thank god. It’s blood." The UHB's refusal to fight Von Goth because he's not a VKB member. Loved all the acronyms. The collectors edition mirror with author's commentary. "Don’t laugh deeper than I." The "magic 8" vision pool. Firesteel's lack of WSB. The VSB By-laws. UHB Rule 17-67. "The chief export of Burnia is tin." Excellent work!

Unfortunately I mostly watch NFL, but I do keep track of College Football and go to... read

    Wow, I really dont know how to review this. Part of me is fascinated by this script, the other half is utterly confused. I loved the setting. It reminded me of the city of Rapture from the Bioshock games. A unique society slowly driven mad by the same thing that makes them unique. More importantly, the concept of the purple gas and the people choosing to live there made... read

    It has been a very long time since I read a western, so I decided to give Sara Madigan a try. It was an entertaining screenplay, and fairly well written. I was able to follow everything, and it flowed well. I enjoyed the fact that the writer intended to tell a story and not a history lesson (which is one of the reasons it's been a while since I read a Western). I do have to... read
