Excerpts from a recent script report
'Consider the TOO FURIOUS films, or a good Bond film - CASINO ROYALE (2006), and the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE films. More screen time is given to screenplay plot, character and relationship building than is given to action sequences in such films. That’s why the action sequences, by and large, work, and it’s how they can be interesting. This even applies to the ultimate kinetic thriller: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT (2018).'
'Challenge yourself to write one line screenplay dialogue. This can yield interesting and cool results. Perhaps even more importantly, clipped screenplay dialogue can create ellipsis, and leaving things out is essential to garnering audience buy-in because people must work stuff out rather than being spoon-fed it.'
