The Wolf Man

Overall I found this series by @spideyivydaredevilfan26 to be quite good, though I had to bargain & cajole to get him to vote in a comp, which he missed the deadline to put his vote in for, and in return I did this review for him! How this review came about, you don’t care you just want to know stuff right?

The Good

Excellent casting (see his casting page) and well written. Also it’s a damn sight better than the 2010 remake which is a waste of time watching! SIDF26 takes you on a journey, builds in the right places and make a genuinely good monster movie. There’s opening credits, closing credits, suggested score, a lot of work has been put into this

The Bad

It’s a script! Its 16 chapters of script! Personally I like stories with “ands” and “thens”; a script is what I want when I’m shooting a film not sitting at home looking for a story. Scripts as I’ve said before don’t convey much in the way of atmosphere so even though the shot says: NIGHT, COLD, DORCHESTER 1912 that doesn’t compare to say “Even the stars were cold, as the wind from the North Sea blew across the town of Dorchester. Another freezing, dark night in the middle of England”

Overall

It’s a big read but I say read it! I dare you! If this was a film it’d be a solid 8 but as is (because this aint a film) I give it a 6!

The links to the chapters are below....what else were you going to do today? Go, read, comment!

@batkevin74: lol, I thought I saw one yesterday where you had made the titles into links. What happened? You really need to just set up a blog page and play with the features. You'll be glad that you did.

EDIT: If for no other reason, because I'll stop harrassing you then! ;D

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: I usually do - I like bk's writing. If you're referring to your Wolfman stuff, I'll at least check out the 1st chapter. I'm not a big fan of scripts though, so no promises on anything further.

Hmm. Only managed to get through the first four, the reason being is that it is a script. It's hard work reading, enjoyable but hard work @spideyivydaredevilfan26 this was the stand out line "He wouldn't be the first. Jesus Christ himself died a violent death. The just aren't always rewarded in this world, but in the next, they will get their due"

I may not read on, you've done well though to punch-out 16 chapters though. Round of applause please ladies & gents!

Thanks so much for the high praise! Yeah, if you were getting bored with the format than you might have a hard time reading on as Lawrence doesn't actually shapeshift into The Wolf-Man until about part 9/10. :)
