Writing On Spec

An award caliber procrastinator discovers a new and dangerous pursuit to keep him from actually writing another script. Why another Blog? I love to talk screenwriting. I love to talk story. I live in Richmond, VA. It's almost easier to get produced than find another screenwriter here. We are the anti-LA.

So let it be said, so let it be done

Just caught a preview of The Brave One with Jodie Foster and my rants about the average person's frustrations with crime came to mind. I believe I mentioned how the Death Wish type movies will be making a comeback and here we have a fine example. While obviously our perspectives have changed with regards to taking justice into our own hands, I can't help but feel this is a reflection of the times. That the majority of well behaved people are tired of criminals shaping our society.

We'll see if my thoughts are validated when the box office receipts come in and the reviews roll in.

I believe the remake to the ending of Shooter is another reflection of the frustration we feel with regards to the corruption of our political leaders. What better way to express our thoughts that have them executed in cold blood?
