WTF?

Thanks for the 7 page definition of dark....   I guess. Way too much dialogue. No action til the end. If you're making a statement about this challenge, I don't get it.

Well, I believe we have our front runner for worst of the worst.  This one will be hard to top.  I'd like to ask the writer why he even bothered to write it, because it's incredibly lame even as a bad joke.  Nice to know you own a dictionary, though.  Congrats on that.

Hey!  Why did I get deleted?  Those were my honest thoughts and I bet they will be echoed numerous times.

EDIT: You gave nothing constructive in your review and merely bashed the script.  Calling scripts a piece of shit and a waste of time is not on - especially if you don't back it up.  Regards.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

I gave precedence to the scripts with * by the title and this is exactly why.  I think I'll skip over the no *-ers for now after reading this.

Why did you even submit this?  Are you even here to read this feedback?  This was obviously just a big mocking of the challenge and everyone here.

As I said...I think everyone will echo my sentiments and none will offer any constructive anything in their comments.

Does anyone really need to backup their comments when dealing with a piece like this?  I seriously don't think so.

It's a total slam of the entire challenge and slap in the face of everything that this is.

This one was a farce of a read. Endless pontificating. Cartoonish action.
I was completely turned off by the end.

I hope the author doesn't have a gun.

I'm sure the guy probably tried his best.  Maybe he didn't understand the premise.  Might just wanna give him/her the benefit of the doubt.    

...my first OWC(Halloween) was a disaster.

I can see what the author was doing but he/she sorta lost control of it.

I think this was clearly written in a short amount of time just to get something submitted. I don't think there's any point trashing it as clearly it wasn't meant to be taken seriously. I found the ending amusing in a weird sort of way.

It seems the writer of this knows how to structure a screenplay and is probably quite intelligent, so I'd be interested to see if they submitted another entry that actually took this seriously.

Cheers,
Tim.

The dialogue could have been punched up a bit. Still, I got a couple of laughs.

This was an unnecessary dose of sarcasm towards those who created the challenge, and will put in many hours to help the writers here, so I find that a bit shitty.

That said, it's an entry, and was quite funny at times. Obviously the person can write, but it's weird they felt the need to be such an arse to writers helping out others.

I thought this was fine.  Not quite in the spirit of the competition but a twist on the challenge nonetheless.

I think this is another one of those extra scripts people have submitted.

Nothing to get upset about.

Right...pretty odd, this one. I didn't actually see it as an 'up-yours' to the people running the challenge, just a half-baked idea that didn't really have anywhere to go and so ended up going nowhere apart from spiralling into chaos.

I think I have an inkling as to who might have written this, but then it's not much more than a stab in the dark (hey! I can do it too!).


Guess who's back? Back again?

I can see why it upset a few people, but it was pretty funny in places.

It reminds me of the kind of thing you write if you have writers block, just take an element of something and take it to extremes.
