Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

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!

Un livre sur l'écriture de scénario différent du tout venant donc rafraichissant.
A conseillé en Kindle quand même pour avoir les deux formats de lecture ("Hulk" et "normal")
A quand la traduction française ?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 My Dinner With Hulk (Dinner With Abed) (Dinner With Andre) 12 décembre 2013
Par Tony S Zhou - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
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 étoiles sur 5 ALL THE STARS for the most helpful film book I've ever read 29 janvier 2014
Par Anne E Kirn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I loved this book enough that I'm having trouble writing a short review about it. It made a huge difference for me personally, so I have to say that if you THINK you might want to read it, just buy it. It costs less than a cup of coffee and the benefits are going to last you a lot longer. But if you want more encouragement to do so, read on.

Two practical notes first:
- you have the option of reading it WITH CAPSLOCK ON AS HULK INTENDED or "normally". Unless you could use a little shouting.
- if you freak out and think "But I don't HAVE a Kindle or a tablet and I'm not reading it on my dang PHONE", there IS a link to download Mac software in very tiny, Ant-Man scaled letters on the right sidebar.

I only had a passing familiarity with FilmCritHulk before reading this. But Edgar Wright recommended it, and he gives good advice. I've very glad I listened to him. I read other screenwriting and film books back in the day, and was even in Francis Ford Coppola's experimental screenwriting reader program years ago (poor people I wrote reviews for had no idea I was 15). But I always found them intimidating and generally unhelpful, either from being too esoteric and impractical, or too Stories for Dummies and so focused on "rules" they missed the reason entirely.

This is a whole other class of book. It feels more like being mentored than being lectured. While it's more about general ideas over specifics, that makes it more useful instead of less. There are also examples using films you're likely familiar with (good and bad), to help illustrate concepts. And most importantly, it gives you assistance with methods of bridging the seemingly vast and uncharted canyon between having an idea and having a screenplay. If you went to film school or are aggressively self-educated and you think you know what there is to know, you should still read it. Aside from "deprogramming" you about some models you were likely taught that may be more harmful than helpful, it mixes in enough encouragement to make you feel someone is on your side and wants you to succeed. The tone is informal, but the content isn't overly simplified; which makes it feel approachable. As one of the reviewers said, it's clear Hulk has a real thorn in his side about abuse of the monomythic cycle. But it's clearly not unjustified frustration, and solidifies that it's not just an academic exercise but is written from a place of passion about stories.

In fact, I think it's less of a "how to" and more of a "why to", and certainly helped me crystallize my desire to go back to writing. It makes you feel like you have a map drawn by a local who wants to get you where you're going. And that's a very useful point between the scientific but often misleading Google maps of "How to Write Screenplays" and the scrap of parchment with a cartoon drawing of LA and "here be dragons" scrawled on it. As a film school "dropout", I'm pretty sure I came into it with the parchment, but can now write the addendum "worth fighting".

I genuinely think it's not strictly a "screenwriting" book. Even though it would be silly to say all mediums are the same, it addresses TV writing some specifically, and most of the ideas would generalize just fine to the demands of comics or novels. Really, it's about stories, not about movies. And at that it's not even "for screenwriters"; I'd highly recommend it to anyone who works in a related field.

If you care about stories and what makes them tick, it's for you. Have you bought the book yet? SERIOUSLY. At least I'm not that guy who inexplicably quoted a large passage from Moby Dick.

I have one small caveat in my otherwise whole-hearted endorsement: in a few places it becomes obvious that Hulk assumes all his readers are men. It's not a criticism of him, really, since he makes some very good points about writing women (and women who write). But if you're female, you may be briefly feel a little alienated and sad that the state of affairs in film is such makes it a logical assumption. Do stick with it anyway.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best analysis of storytelling you're going to find. 2 mars 2014
Par J. Sellers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said more articulately and at greater length by other reviewers. All I can say is, if you're unfamiliar with the works of FCH, this is a great introduction, and if you're familiar but unsure about this purchase, go ahead and throw the money at it. You're looking at the cost of a couple cups of coffee for the most cogent and, yes, weirdly enough, humane discussion of storytelling you'll find anywhere -- and yes, this is mostly new content. While there is some overlap from previous essays that have appeared on BadassDigest and on the FCH blog, consider this book a coalescence of all of those ideas he's been batting about for the last few years.

If you have no interest in screenwriting, the first half of this book (well, the first quarter: remember, the CAPS and regular case versions are back to back) is worth the price alone. Any thoughtful consumer of any narrative form can benefit from the lessons found here, and while the depth of Hulk's writing can rival that of David Foster Wallace at his best, the language and references here feel neither esoteric nor high-falutin'. Hulk's primary purpose in any of these writings is to share, to educate, and he does a bang up job of it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not your average "How To" guide 28 décembre 2013
Par Jacob F. Keller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Just a fair warning, this is not your standard "How To" screenwriting guide. You won't find easy to follow charts or graphs or fill in steps. If you've never written a screenplay or are looking to write your first, than I would start with something that deals with formatting and the basics of screenwriting first. However, if you've got a pretty good idea of how a screenplay, and by extension, a story should be written than get ready to be schooled on what you thought you knew.

Film Crit Hulk Screenwriting 101 explains the whys and hows of storytelling in the most in-depth way possible. Sure, Hulk speaks in the third person with plenty of long tangents and ALL CAPS Hulk speak can be draining (though there is a standard "Bruce Banner" version with the download as well), however the guy knows exactly what he is talking about.

Hulk won't ever say "THIS IS HOW YOU SHOULD DO IT" or "THIS IS HOW THE PROS DO IT". No, instead he talks about all the ways a story, movie, or TV show succeed in doing exactly what they are trying to do or not trying to do. The dude goes all the way back to Shakespeare and brings all those storytelling lessons roaring back to modern day and explains exactly why after more than 400 years they are still talked about and studied.

Film Crit Hulk has managed to write one of the definitive screenwriting guides that manages to not only redefine what screenwriters do but also go beyond just dictating from his ivory tower or promising success if you follow these steps. He really, really cares about writing good stories and encouraging good writers to tell good stories. There is no bias to genre or elements, Hulk loves ALL cinema from giant, webcrawling blockbusters to small, gentle indies, and eye-popping sci-fi or horror. So I encourage anyone in the business (and just outside the business) to pick up this book and give a chance. I have become a far better writer because of it but I've had to stretch my noodle and really think about it instead of just going through the usual steps of most guides. But it's worth it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you want to tell stories, read this now 31 mars 2014
Par J. Fuhrman - Publié sur Amazon.com

Anyone who is interesting in telling stories should read this book. I'm not an aspiring screenwriter, nor ever plan on writing a screenplay, but I read many great reviews and excerpts from this book that convinced me I could get something out of it. I've been writing a novel for some time, and a few short stories. I've read plenty of the "how to write a novel" books which have taught me what I was both doing right and wrong in my writing. This book echoes some of the major "rules" of successful fiction writing, but also brings new things I hadn't encountered before, particularly with story structure.

Even if you just love film, or stories in general, you'll get something out of this. Have you ever watched a movie or read a book and thought: "I didn't really care for that, but I'm not sure why."? HULK breaks down structure, motivation, characterization, drama, and all the things that make a movie "work." If anything, it'll help you have a greater appreciation for the screenwriters who get it right and just how powerful storytelling can be.

It's my favorite book on storytelling right now, and I'm sure it will be for years to come.

Thanks HULK! Now back to getting SMASHY on my latest draft.

Note: I read this on Kindle, and ironically, the section of "screenplay formatting" in the regular case version is pretty messed up. Hopefully, it'll be fixed in the future.
