An interesting article for writers out there in the 4/21/8 issue of Time called Writers Rule! by Michael Kinsley. The whole issue seems to have some interesting reads, ranging from "How his mom made Obama" to "A beer lover's paradise".
I wanted to go back and edit my entry from Three Kings. After a second viewing, I feel I may have been a bit hastie. I like the dialog because there isn't very much cursing in the film. Considering the plot is about American soldiers during the
Gulf war Desert Storm invasion of Iraq, one would imagine that the script would be filled with curse words. They do use the term rag heads and camel jockey to refer to the iraqis, but the Kurds come right back and use a term I've never heard before to refer to the Americans. Hm, I may just need to watch that movie one last time to get the correct spelling of it. The screenplay would be nice too. I'm on it.
