    If there is anyone who wishes to opt out of my thorough and nitpicky review, just PM me. I realize that I didnt' give that option to some others, but I didn't think that folks might not appreciate that, my bad

    I was leery of posting honest reviews before with our open voting system so ripe for revenge reviews, but thought it might help people improve their work. Take my feedback or leave it. I think I will do these reviews by request in the future.

    So, if I don't hear from you, I'll give you the full monty (figuratively not literally, even if you ask nicely

    P.s. I can seperate the minor flaws from the story and overall execution, so if I write you a paragraph worth of stuff it doesn't mean I will score you lower.

    I'd even go so far as to request an even more thorough and nitpickier review for "The Night Shift," if you've got some hatred and vitriol to spare, Chris.

    I never review out of hatred. I'd rather not waste my time and I'll just say 'nice script, keep writing' or something else equally useless. I review thoroughly to help capture every possible problem I see so you can correct them.

    have at it... feedback is always good... though, i completely feel you on the open voting issue...

    i plan to score the scripts based on their merit and their hitchcockiness... and not based on whether or not someone gave me a good review... so, as long as the script is decent, it will get a decent score from me... no matter how cruel it's author is to me about my script... but please remember, people, that i'm sensitive and i fancy myself a writer... try not to bruise my ego too deeply... :p ;)

    I also scored a lot on the "hitchcockiness." I think there were a lot of good scripts, but also some that I didn't feel captured that Hitchcocky feeling, i.e. not very suspensful. I gave credit to those who did because hey...that was the contest.

    Oooh but nowhere in the requirements did it say it must be "Hitchcockian". The requirements to be judged were three fold; Suspense/Thriller, MacGuffin and 6-10 pages.

    There is no Hitchcockian requirement so if you're judging for that than it's kinda unfair...
    But ahh life is unfair and I will now listen to this violin playing my sad song he he he.

    Exactly. Thank you, jamiejay. I did read the directions and I was fair. Some were just less suspenseful and some were a little too predictable. Unfortunately you gotta vote some higher than the others, and everyone has different preferences and different reasons for their choices. That's pretty evident in the threads.
