heh. And what about Necronauts?

As I've said before, 2000AD is a WEEKLY comic. If you can only produce one amazing script every six years you're no use as a comic writer.

I would note though, that even Rennie his worst has been several million times better than that single future shock you sent me.

That's because Gordon can write something every week for years, how many wannabe writers can do that?

Irony is thinking you're the greatest living writer in the world while, in fact, you're the most untalented wannabe in creation.

I'd like to read it. I've been banging on and on about wanting to see a STORY not an IDEA. I'd like to read one of your screenplays, it'll show me if you deserve your arrogance or not.

You are correct that a pitch is a broad outline of a story.

You are incorrect to think what you've posted are pitchs.

You're also wrong about why I criticise you (and Milo). The reason you're coming in for so much flak is because of YOUR INSISTENCE OF YOUR OWN GREATNESS.

Honestly, if you tried to be a little more humble maybe we could all enjoy ourselves in here.

I can say there is no emotional ties because your "pitch" didn't have any. THIS is what a pitch should look like:

MegaCity 1:

Death arrives and warps out the local orphanage. Dredd investigates and realises the only way save them is to go to Deadworld.

Deathworld is a dangerous, desolate place. Many Probes have been sent, but nothing has returned can only one man do it? Dredd insists, he wants the city to be fully protected in case Death comes back. But What does Death want with the Children?

Dredd warps into Deathworld and makes his way to the only structure still standing. The Hall of Death.

Inside he discovers what's been happening. Death has been artifically aging the childrens bodies to make a new army of Necro-Judges A process that will only work on children (that's a movie fudge ;)

But Dredd is too late, time moves differently in Deadworld. Now Dredd has to either destroy the Hall of Death and all of the Necro-Judges or return to MegaCity 1 and warn the City.

One plucky survivor is found, her name is Vienna, and she looks strangly familiar.


There you go, I've taken your single idea and fleshed it out. I don't profess that it's any good, but at least it's more complete. And people will find it easier to judge my writing abilities based on that single story than all the millions of one line notions that you chuck out. THAT is what YOU should be doing.  You have yet to prove you can do the same, despite your Arrogant boasts ("I can write better than any 2000AD writer", etc).

(BTW: Vienna is Dredd's niece)

"I don't care what you think. The proof is in the eating.

"I will write my Dredd screenplay and you are welcome to read it.

Hang on, I'm confused, do we eat the screenplay?

dear oh dear oh dear.

Can you point me to the exact place where I said "Scojo, you need a super original idea for your screenplay"?

I never said that, in the process of trying to get you to do more than post up some ideas. You posted "As for my Dredd idea" and then a list of ideas (which I suggested had already been done in the comic), so, you're basically now admitting that these weren't your ideas? Get your story straight scojo ... oh no, you can't because you've no idea of what a story is. Every time you've been asked for a story you've come up with a half dozen story ideas (cribbed mostly from previous dredd stories) or a half started script (either a comic or screenplay). Clones seem to feature heavily, you didn't have a hand in Star Wars Episode II ?

I could scribble something on a napkin and go around shouting how much better it is than Mona Lisa,  it would be comparing a sketch to a painting, you're trying to compare an idea to a story - it doesn't work. Again (as I've said repeatedly) until you offer proof of your superior *writing* abilities I will continue to redicule your insistence of your own genius.

well... Anderson is a central character who many readers have a strong emotional tie to. Because of that people care whether she lives or dies - as Death has possesion of her it means that in order for Dredd to save his entire city he has to kill her. Your idea (which, to paraphrase: Death takes people hostage dredd goes to deadworld) doesn't really say much. Who cares about these people? There's no emotional tie to any of these people.

Still, it's an unfair comparisons - in my mind Anderson being possessed by Death is a story, whereas what you've written is a half an idea.

Post A STORY. A short, 5 paragraph story. Or even a synopsis of your movie script (cus, NO movie mogul will read the script until they've heard some sort of snappy synopsis)

"If I wrote a Death storyline I would add some new element to it. Such as Death enslaves a certain element of Deathworld's as his slaves and then decides to bring back to Deadworld some of Mega City's citizens to experiment on. Maybe he is losing his immortality or something and needs the lifeblood of a vast number of live citizens to sustain him.

"Dredd would have to go to Deadworld possibly to rescue the citizens of Mega City 1.

"It is just an idea.
"How does that sound Mrcomicus?

Bloody awful. But, y'know. That's just my opinion.
Like everything else, it sounds like an idea (neither good, bad, nor indifferent) not a story.

"Will the new Dredd films not use existing storylines from 2k?

Yes it will. In one form or another.

"If they don't,then you are right to criticise me for my Dredd screenplay ideas

Maybe it's old age, but are you claiming that your ideas are to reuse those ideas that have already been used in the comic?

In which case, exactly what is your original contribution to those ideas?

Oh ! I get it! you were suggesting it was Milo who was
'"...a smug useless piece of talking turd who criticises others but doesn't have the intelligence, wit or imagination to offer anything creative himself. "

Somehow I thought you were talking about YOURSELF! how silly of me...

(but of course! you think your half formed shambolic notions ARE creative!)

" have a great idea for a 2000AD story.

"Lets call it "Milo". The adventures of.

"About a smug useless piece of talking turd who criticises others but doesn't have the intelligence, wit or imagination to offer anything creative himself.

"I am sure you can write it Milo

"After all, it is autobiographical...

scojo, it's only autobiographical if *you* write it.

teehee... Did poor you really think I thought your story was good? ah diddums. You seemed to have missed the sarcasm in my previous posts. Oh well. Still, can't be helped.

I don't doubt you'll write a dredd screenplay (heck, you have the software) I DO doubt that you'll be able to sell it. Which is, after all, the point.



"So please post your criticism to the screenwriters.

Ah, so the ideas you were posting weren't even yours!

Ah well, now, there you go.
