A few off the top of my head, and forgive me if I forget any...

A Transitional Period, by Jason Benoit - a quirky and interesting story about a young man who stops by his parents' house on his way across the country.  Well-drawn characters and unforced humor which comes from the characters rather than the plot.  I really dug this one.

The Burnout, by Phil/dogglebe - Much has been said about this one, and I agree with all of it.

Devil in D Minor, by Breanna - Again, plenty has been said about this script.  What I liked about it was the intertwining of characters early on.  It seems a very complicated read but everything makes sense in the big picture.  

I know I'm forgetting a few which haven't received a lot of replies.  I'll have to dig into the forums to pull the names of them.

I have saved and downloaded two screenplays. Relax, I am not going to copy but I am sure it will teach me a thing or two. In fact,I like The Farm, at least what I read  of it, sure got potential and perhaps the author in all seriousness, should try and pitch it if he or she can.  As one says, you can but try and unless you do, you are never going to know what will work. From what I have read from Schellhardt, she recommends a few other ideas for pitches.  I wish the screenwriter serious good luck and go for it. Hollywood will be eating out of your hand if they see this one.

Regards, Widget52


I have changed my name to Illiad from Widget52. Sorry everyone for the confusion I have caused but it has taken some doing and my decision for personal reasons.  I hope this will be alright and look forward to hearing from everyone.   Illiad

Okay, first off, I was just thinking that maybe this thread actually gets ess attention due to its stickiness.  When I see stickies, I think rules, and that I've all ready read them, so I skip them  This is unfortunate for this certainly is a nice little thread.

Also, I want to say thank you for those of you who recommended either "A Very Bad Day" or "The Search for the Great American Jackelope", that truly means alot to me, so thanks Greg Mike and James.

Now for my recommendations:

Comedy:
I think my very favorite is Mike's "The Hero of her Heart"

Action:
I really enjoyed Phil's "A Druids Guide to the Northeast", and I'm not usually the biggest fan of this Genre.

SimplyScript Script:
"The Great Brain Robbery" by Martin, Is my favorite of all these.

Short:
This is tough, I think I'll name two "Someplace Nice and Dark" by Bert, an amazing idea done with some just absolutely wonderful descriptions.  "Linus"- A spooky script that really deals with guilt and really, like, for lack of a better term "got me".

That's all for now!

Looks like I'm the first one to post here in awhile! It is okay to still post here, right?

Here are my top two favorite scripts, oddly enough they are by the same person!

1.- Linus-(short)-by Phil(dogglebe)- A superbly crafted script that is truly original!
2.- Not Even Death-(short)-by Phil(dogglebe)- Hands down the best zombie script on this sight!

Dreams in Dust and Marble by Phil--I loved this one, the crazyness of it. Disjointed, confusing...but engaging.

The Pool by...TJ, I believe? sorry if I got the author's name wrong--It was a great read with likeable, distinguishable characters and very good atmosphere. At first I hated its ending, but over time I grew to appreciate it.

I'm sure there are a lot more, but I can't remember them now. It's bugging me.

I also enjoyed all of Sryknows' work (what happened to him, anyway?)

I'm not going to list my most recommended as there are too many.

I will only mention one, and the reason for it is that is the only one where I went WHOA!!!! and that was "Dreams in Dust and Marble". For some reason, that one blew me away.

This thread has been woken up a bit then, i wanted to come on here to recommend a story by Pia but sheepwalker above beat me to it! But I will mention it anyway...

Santa's gift to Joey won December's competition on the Movie Poet site and is a really nicely written script.

I recommend these two scripts, but for entirely different reasons:

Someplace Nice and Dark.  A creepy little tale of Bert's with a unique look at a monster.

and

Curse of America's Last Raped Slave  An absolutely abysmal script by a guy who really really hates white people.  People should read this script just to learn how not to write scripts.  It's actually worse than the script that should not be named.

Read it, but please don't comment on it, much like the script that we "dare not mention by name".

As far as recommendations, check out Greg's "Specter" and James' "Outsiders".  Both good, feature length reads.

I probably lost the interest of 90% of the people by saying feature, but what the hell.

How do you want to be remembered?

Eternal Memories questions more than just "living morality".

... a script that proves how a memorial can affect the future.

Read it and find out why you should listen to that little cricket.

I'll recommend 'Eight Ball' which is in the short section. The formatting etc isn't first rate, which is probably why it hasn't received many reviews, but the story is a beauty and well worth a read.

Thanks to bert, I have found this thread.

And I would like to use it to draw attention to an excellent script that I read just last night by screen_dreamer aka Kim Britt.

Now, this is a bit of a chick flick - it has a lot of heart and potential, and is a great showcase for Kim's undoubted talent.

So, ladies and gentleman, my recommendation: Donor Daddy.

Hopefully this will prompt some reads

Andrew
