Think the second Mortal Kombat movie was bad? This is much, much worse. I read Seanbaby’s review of “STAR CRASH” (Italy’s ripoff of Star Wars), and decided to see it for myself. How on earth it could be worse than MK:AI have no idea. Apart from the scenes of Stella Star making faces and brief appearance of David Hasselhoff, this is the most prominent feature: Count Zarth Arn himself. The overacting is simply insane in this case… “WHAT?” *gets up* “Call in all our forces immediately! We will wipe out the emperor… COMPLETELY!” *turns around* “By Sun-set… I will be the new emperor! AND I will be the MASTER… of the WHOLE… universe!” *grins*

Outlines… Part 6


Visit my screenwriting blog at www.myothercareer.wordpress.com I don’t know why the beginning is all gray like that, but it clears up after about 20 seconds. In this video I finish up a series of posts I’ve been putting on the blog about how I go about outlining before writing a screenplay, and explain how I use “free screenwriting” to explore ideas without actually changing anything in my current screenplay or outline.
