i've already mentioned the concept, it's not crazy, it is what it is. The story still doesn't work for me. Like I said in the review of the previous draft, a good story has some sort of conflict. What movie have you ever watched or book have you ever read where there was no type of conflict at all for the first 2/3. It just doesn't work. When there's no conflict, there's nothing pushing the characters to do anything, it's just people living their...

Here were my thoughts on your revised script:

1. Concept - As mentioned previously, the concept isn't the most original or the strongest. That being said, that gives you more room for creativity and I can see that you've definitely taken that into account more for this newer draft.

2. Story - Just as before, I thought the story was, overall, pretty good. I've noticed it was shortened up just a tad to keep it from dragging and the big scene...

"Again to Love" is comprised of very little more than the minimum elements to compose a romance. Extremely low character count with not much personality to go around; a single plot-line that runs mostly without conflict; dialogues that work surface-level and with little nuance; scenes that are almost always mono-thematic; and practically no character development to speak of. I will expand on each issue and the do a summary at the end.

Writing 90 - 120 pages of so-called "scenes" does not mean it's a screenplay. It means you understand how to format the Slug, Action, Character, and Dialogue lines. That's all that's here. That's not even done properly in parts. How this was accepted through the first 15 is beyond me. It does you a disservice.

A screenplay (movie) shows us a story through action and reaction. Live fictional characters, in the most entertaining way possible....

Concept: As I’m sure you know, the concept of a love triangle isn’t all that crazy and the foreign exchange student twist isn’t too crazy either. I have to say that I don’t love how much weight concept carries in this system as an old concept that’s executed well can be great but...

Story: ... the execution does have to be great. A story really should have conflict, a sequence of causes and effects. There’s no real conflict that drives the st...

Let's starts with the setting. College campuses are -- usually -- terrible places to set a movie because the only people who care about the lives of 18-24 years-olds are 18-24 year-old. (The one notable exception is if the college film is about friendship, which is why the most popular college-based films usually involve fraternities.) I can't think of a romance movie set at college off the top of my head, so this could conceivably be new territo...

Here were my thoughts on your script:

1. Concept - Even though the concept isn't the most original, it's simple enough to where you can work with it and add a lot of your own creativity into it.

2. Story - For the most part, I thought the story was decent, albeit a bit prolonged and just slightly predictable. Unfortunately though, I feel like the story downgrades in quality once it gets to the ending, almost entirely because of Theresa's ch...
