1. Celtx is awesome. Free script-writing software that is incredibly easy to use? Yes please.

2. Once you get into the swing of it (and actually decide on plot points, cough cough), script writing is actually not too difficult. I have just under 4 pages so far. Whee! As a movie, it will be terrible, but as a script-writing exercise, it's kind of fun.

3. So. Alice In Wonderland. Jason was teasing me that my 'review' of it was quickly becoming irrelevant since it's been out for weeks now. So I finally sat down and finished it.

I was really happy that was that I was able to watch Wonderland with my sister, although Erica and I have very different tastes in movies; I respect her taste immensely even when I disagree with her. I have a higher tolerance for campiness, self-conscious humor, and 'typical Hollywood' (romantic subplots, glitz, etc). Erica, on the other hand, has a much higher tolerance for gratuitous violence, sex, and drug use, low-budget films, and general grittiness. I like to think this means that, if we both like a movie, it's a good sign of that movie's quality. On the other hand, when we turn to each other after a movie and tell each other earnestly, “That was AWFUL”, it's a pretty good bet that movie is bad.

You can see where I'm going with this. People who really liked Burton's Wonderland...may want to stop reading now.

The short version: The latest Alice In Wonderland is Tim Burton with zero respect for his audience and precious little respect for his source material.

TL;DRx1000 )

Okay, bedtime. Later, all!
