SO YOU WANT TO WRITE A SCREENPLAY?

BEFORE YOU DO, KNOW THIS: IT REQUIRES A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT AND DEDICATION. A LOT OF THESE SCREENWRITING BOOKS LIKE TO FILL YOUR HEAD WITH FALSE PROMISES AND EASY TRICKS. BUT IT’S SO DAMN FAR FROM THE OBVIOUS TRUTH: BECOMING A TALENTED WRITER TAKES A LONG TIME AND A LOT OF HARD WORK.

THEY ALSO CONVENIENTLY FORGET TO MENTION THAT THE ODDS ARE AGAINST YOU. THERE ARE OVER A MILLION SCRIPTS ALREADY FLOATING AROUND HOLLYWOOD. HULK HAS READ, OH… A COUPLE THOUSAND OF THEM. AND NEARLY EVERY SINGLE PERSON HULK MEETS IN THE FILM INDUSTRY ALREADY HAS A SCRIPT OF SOME SORT. NOT ONLY DOES THE SHEER VOLUME OF SCRIPTS MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO DISTINGUISH ONESELF IN THIS CLIMATE, BUT SO DOES THE FACT THAT THERE ARE ALREADY A VAST NUMBER OF TALENTED, PROFESSIONAL WRITERS IN NEED OF WORK.

SO GIVEN ALL THESE CRIPPLING ODDS, WE SHOULD ALL JUST GIVE UP, RIGHT? WELL, NO. YOU’RE NOT HERE READING THIS BECAUSE THAT REALITY BOTHERS YOU. AND THAT’S THE THING ABOUT THE MOVIES: THEY’RE WONDERFUL. THEY’RE THE IMAGINATION OF STORYTELLING MADE TANGIBLE. THEY’RE OUR DREAMS MADE REAL. WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO BE A PART OF ALL THAT?

FILM CRIT HULK WAS CREATED IN A CHAOTIC LAB EXPERIMENT INVOLVING GAMMA RADIATION, THE GHOST OF PAULINE KAEL, AND TELEPODS FOR SOME REASON. NOW HULK HAS A DEEP AND ABIDING LOVE OF CINEMA WHEREIN HULK RECOGNIZES THE INHERENT VALUES OF POPULAR, NARRATIVE, OR EXPERIMENTAL STYLES!

THROUGH A UNIQUE JOURNEY, HULK HAS ENDED UP WORKING IN HOLLYWOOD FOR OVER A DECADE AND NOW WRITES ABOUT CINEMA AND STORYTELLING IN THOROUGHLY HULK-SIZED FASHION.

AND NOW YOU HOLD IN YOUR HANDS / HAVE ON YOUR SCREEN / WHATEVER IN YOUR WHATEVER, THE FIRST EBOOK BY FILM CRIT HULK.

THE ONLY THING IT MEANS TO BE IS HELPFUL.

My Dinner With Hulk (Dinner With Abed) (Dinner With Andre)

This is my first review on Amazon. I am a recent fan of Film Crit Hulk, and I thought I’d say why.

This isn’t even an exaggeration – most of your screenwriting books are worthless compared to Hulk’s.

Where to begin – with Hulk’s eerily intuitive understanding of what weakens drama, his in-depth explanations of how to make characterization and narrative work beautifully in sync, or his dogged determination to present all of this information as clearly as possible? And it’s all for the price of a sandwich.

ALL THE STARS for the most helpful film book I’ve ever read

I loved this book enough that I’m having trouble writing a short review about it. It made a huge difference for me personally, so I have to say that if you THINK you might want to read it, just buy it. It costs less than a cup of coffee and the benefits are going to last you a lot longer. But if you want more encouragement to do so, read on.

If anybody is hesitant as to the quality of this book, check out some of filmcrithulk’s articles – his man of steel essay in particular is a favourite of mine: […]

Screenwriters: Buy This Book!

I’ve read A LOT of screenwriting books, and after a while a lot of them start to feel the same. This isn’t. It’s very thought provoking, inspiring, and fresh. Hulk is kind and supportive, super smart without being being condescending. There is a TON of useful information for screenwriters at any level. Strongly recommended!

Bless you, Film-crit Hulk

HULK SMASH! Truly. The Jade Giant’s grasp of writing screenplays is mind boggling. Being a puny human, I need to continue to train my pen game until I, too, become imbued with all of the screenplay gamma radiation necessary to take up the mantle. Seriously, though: this book is an incredibly informative and enjoyable read, and I’d recommend it to anyone who has even a passing interest in writing screenplays, or anyone who has been lucky enough to stumble upon one of HULK’s critical gems on the Internets. Thanks HULK. I’m excited, inspired and intimidated rolled into one. Can’t wait to apply the lessons to everything I’m working on!
