This is great. It's hard to find good screenplays to read.

Can't belive the "facebook" movie doesn't sound like crap. Sickened with myself yet intrigued.

Yes, I was prepared to point and laugh at the Facebook movie too, but then I read the review a bit and it seems like a pretty compelling story.

I don't think Carson Reeves mentioned this in the article currently displaying on ScriptShadow, but I believe Sorkin's script is based on Ben Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires.

The Twitter movie seemed a little sparse, though, didn't it?

That's surprising. It does have 140 characters in it.

Just finished reading the script on the site called "Source Code". Hey, it's pretty good! And I see Universal has put it into development....

Tell me about it. I've read about six hundred. A couple were kinda good.

I'm not sure this site will help with the weeding-out, tough.
