It's spelled Judgment.

When you spell the title wrong, it makes the rest of the script look terrible.

Depends on where you’re from. It's very common to spell it "judgement" in a non-legal context in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Only read the first ten pages. Found them 'dialogue heavy'. Too much exposition. You need to 'show not tell'! Good luck with it!

That may be the case, but where is Hollywood? Where is SimplyScripts, even? It's in the United States.

I would absolutely tell a British, etc, author to use American spelling and grammar when trying to get into Hollywood as a novice. I do understand that the spelling isn't going to be on screen, so it's not a huge deal.

If Judgement Day was on the marquee or movie poster, what would you say? "HAHA! They spelled it wrong!"

Posting here has never been just about getting to Hollywood. It's about getting your story out there. The way people spell things shouldn't have an impact on the script, because, at the end of the day, it's the story that counts. Why should we change the way we've been taught to spell if it isn't strictly speaking, breaking any rules?

Yes, Simplyscripts is based in the United States, but that sure as hell doesn't mean we should stray away from what we've been taught.
