Very interesting scholarship. A real contribution. Good enough to make me subscribe.

I wasn't surprised at the really awful level of actual writing in the various scenes. The comment about a scene being hard to figure out how to do from the writing got a laugh here, from a screenwriter who has spent half my years in Duh Biz as the "rewriter" the people with their names in the credits hate because they know the movie's success is due more to that work than theirs; I'd say in half the jobs I've done, simply rewriting in understandable standard English was the main improvement I made that set the project on the road to ultimate success. And this SF State grad always gets a kick out of the fact that the really bad ones are always "Ivy Leaguers."
