The part where he finds out he is going to die (don't worry, its not a plot spoiler, it h... read more

Commandments Filmmakers Shall Follow (10 movies items)

"Thou Shall Finish Thy Screenplay Before Shooting What studios always want is a story they, along with an audience can follow. Never shoot with a first draft. Always read the first draft to see if you need to make changes. If you need help to spot goofs in it, have someone else read it as well."
