Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Free sentence case version included!

4.0 von 5 Sternen My Dinner With Hulk (Dinner With Abed) (Dinner With Andre) 12. Dezember 2013
Von Tony S Zhou - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is my first review on Amazon. I am a recent fan of Film Crit Hulk, and I thought I'd say why.

I encourage anyone interested in storytelling, especially popular storytelling, to give his book a read. If you want a preview, you can check out his columns. He's written maybe three books' worth of material on the Internet, so I figured paying him for one book was a ridiculous bargain.

As for this book itself, I'd give it four stars out of five. I enjoyed reading it but I wasn't blown away. It offers a personal summation of screenwriting and storytelling. These aren't "new" concepts. I like to think of this book as something like the MLA guidebook: keep a copy around and read it every year to refresh yourself. It's not going to change your life; it's going to accompany you.

As for Hulk himself, I'd like to offer a reason why you should read him: he's possibly the most humanist film critic since Ebert died.

Maybe this is just me, but I feel that since April 2013, film criticism has been awful to read. Whether you like reading The Dissolve or the Village Voice or IMDB, it seems like everybody is just trying to be smarter than one another, or more of a fanboy. Ebert used to be my oasis; I only agreed with his opinion half the time, but who cares? He watched movies with his heart and he reviewed from the heart, too. If a film broke through and reached him there, he would admit it. These days, I read criticism and I think "none of these guys would ever admit to crying at a movie that wasn't Toy Story 3." Everybody on the web is just trying to sound smarter or more contrarian or more perceptive than the other guy. But films are mainly emotional experiences, and all I read about in reviews are hyper-critical evaluations of a film's politics or discussion of its formal strategy. Nobody writes from the heart.

Then I stumbled across Hulk's review of "The World's End," where he admitted he might be alcoholic. There was also his story of Tarantino telling him not to hate a movie. He's smart enough to pick apart a movie, but also sincere enough to admit it reached him. He's not didactic. His gimmick of writing in all-caps third-person actually does work, or at least it did for me. I don't know what he looks like or what he talks like, so all I have to go on is his writing. And because he writes like a big green monster, my brain just skips over "who wrote this" and goes straight to "what is he saying here."

I don't know if he says anything profound. In fact, his message seems to be one of bottomless simplicity: be sincere and cherish sincerity, in watching movies and making them. And that's why I like him; he reminds me of something I once knew and have kinda forgotten.

Ebert used to have this saying. He lost the ability to eat and drink, but he didn't mind that; he missed talking to his friends at a dinner table. He said "Maybe that's why I enjoy blogging. You don't realize it, but we're at dinner right now."

Buy Hulk's book. It's a good dinner.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This isn't even an exaggeration - most of your screenwriting books are worthless compared to Hulk's. 13. Dezember 2013
Von Lauren Stotts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

As someone who works full-time in the screenwriting business, this is the best book on screenwriting I have ever read. I hesitated because more than a few of these guides are rubbish; I really only bought this because I knew Hulk was the author. I'm so, so glad that I did. He references everything - popcorn flicks, Paul Thomas Anderson-style epics, the common rom-com - because all of these are redeemed by a better understanding on the author's part of what makes good drama. If you're looking for a non-coddling book to give you real advice on screenwriting from a successful professional who is offering long-term, universally-applicable methods to improve the basic way you approach writing -- YOU HAVE FOUND THE RIGHT BOOK. THANKS, HULK, FOR THIS MOVABLE FEAST'S WORTH OF INSIGHT.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good advice though too general 6. April 2014
Von Brent Nichols - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Solid advice can be found in this book from an author I truly enjoy. When dealing with abstract ideas about character and acts, for instance, I wish there were more concrete examples using specific movies to demonstrate what works or doesn't in real practice. There was some of that, but I thought the book could have used a lot more to drive home the points the author was making. The best parts of the book though were the pleas to move beyond the three act structure and the hero journey which I hope a lot of people take to heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best screenwriting book on the planet 31. Januar 2014
Von Thomas M. Kroner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hulk attempts to share with us puny humans his knowledge of the screenwriting craft. I have to say that what I love about this book over any other screenwriting book is that Hulk is trying to mold your brain into that of a screenwriter's rather than just give you some paint-by-numbers formula that makes the same tired crap we all hate. There is no get rich quick scheme in screenwriting and he's upfront with that. There's some really good gems in this book that I haven't seen anywhere else and I'm definitely looking forward to re-reading this over the years and ingraining the knowledge he shared into my writing. And Hulk if you're reading this, thanks for being so awesome. The world needs more people like you, keep up the great work. Please.
