EP 4: World War Z, After Midnight, & The Bling Ring

June 21, 2013

Our script doctors analyze the Michael Carnahan draft of "World War Z" and an early draft of "The Bling Ring" by Sofia Coppola (both available on our web site). The Baron reviews an indie horror called "After Midnight", and we get a monthly Spec Script Update from our Tracking-Board Czar

We discuss how the World War Zombies made Napoleon's same winter weather blunder, the multiple levels of vacuousness Coppola paints in her tapestry of Los Angeles, and we get one thing straight-- there is nothing scarey about Julie Delpy in the nude.

BSE : Star Trek Into Darkness

June 13, 2013

The Script - Beat Sheet Edition is a companion to the The Script main podcast.  In the BSE our Script Doctors won't analyze a script, but instead see a major film in the theater and analyze its story in terms of the Blake Snyder Beat Sheet structure (Beat Sheet explanation & Samples are available on our web site).

This week on The Script - Beat Sheet Edition our script doctors David Negrin, Chris Durham, and Alec Pollak analyze Star Trek Into Darkness.  We debate different Star Trek religions, old Khan vs. new Khan and where the true All Is Lost moment lies.  [Spoilers]
